Teacup Exchange Treasures

Hello Tea Friends,
I have been so excited to share this post with you. For the third time, I participated in sweet Stephanie's teacup exchange through her blog The Enchanting Rose. Once again I'm overwhelmed with the creativity and generosity of my exchange partner.

Sandy of Simply Sandy certainly spoiled me. Please, come take a look.

Even with Hurricane Matthew raging, Sandy delivered an amazing assortment of tea related treasures. 

She expertly managed to place all of the items in this pretty fall themed box~ a perfect storage for fall themed teacups.

Orange is my favorite color and Sandy gifted me with a set of these pretty orange/white napkins which will be used for afternoon tea. So dainty! I love them.

When I'm out at a restaurant and forget my tea, I always regret it. The selection is always so limited. Now I have this wonderful teabag holder from Stephanie's Etsy Shop to hold my favorite teas. Love the lace pockets and floral pattern.

Nothing is better than reading a good book with a cup of tea! Sandy gifted me with this classic and I can't wait to read it. I'm going to suggest it to my book club as our next selection. Sandy also included a cute navy bookmark from Stephanie's shop.

Of course, I am thrilled to share this beautiful white English teacup.
It is an Adams Real English Ironstone produced in Micratex, England.

This mark is from 1966 and onward when Adams became part of the Wedgewood Company.
I am so happy to add this cup and saucer to my collection, and I'm excited to learn about another English pottery company that I didn't know about before this exchange. 
Sandy, as a teacup collector, it means a great deal to me that you gifted me with such a special teacup.

I'm certainly ready to taste the Savannah Bee Co. honey. Wonder if it will taste differently than our local honey?
Look at the ceramic floral tea spoon holder-such a charming design on it. I so appreciate the long handle of the spoon-just right for stirring and fetching a teabag out of the cup.

I adore this tiny tiny teacup with the lemon wedge. Doesn't it look like my teacup? I think it could be used for a dollhouse, but I'm going to carefully place it on my desk. The details are so intricate.

Sandy, a million thanks for making my fall a bit brighter. 

All the best,
