Teacup Exchange Reveal

Hello Tea Friends,
One of the highlights since entering the blog world is participating in fellow blogger Stephanie's teacup exchange at The Enchanting Rose. Stephanie hosts this exchange twice a year and this was my second time participating. Last fall Stephanie was my exchange partner and gifted me with a beautiful Spode teacup and many of her amazing handiwork crafts.


This year I was delighted to receive two wonderful packages from Debbie of Blogger Loves the King!


Debbie gifted me cinnamon stick tea. Cinnamon happens to be my favorite seasoning and I enjoy flavored black teas. Along with the tea, there was a devotional book which had space for journal reflections. I like the garden theme.


This beautiful Paragon teacup was also included! The cup and saucer feature exquisitely painted camellias. If you read my blog, you may recall I featured a similar teacup. I am thrilled to have a pair! They are actually my first pair of matching teacups.

I really admire the artistry of Paragon.

Thank you Debbie for your generosity and thoughtfulness behind these gifts!

It's so wonderful to make connections over tea and across the miles.

The next teacup or mug exchange will take place in September or October. See Stephanie's blog for more details.

Here's to a wonderful week filled with tea times and friends,
Nora
