The Enchanting Rose Teacup Exchange

A couple of months ago I signed up for a teacup exchange. This was sponsored by Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose blog.The exchange is where you're given a name and address and send some perfect stranger a package of goodies along with a teacup. In exchange you get one from someone else. I have done different kinds of swaps before and it's always been fun. Monica at the Homepun Heart used to do a shoebox swap and it was a lot of fun. Another swap I did was where we all bought the Bend the Rules sewing book and each month made a project out of it and sent it to someone else. One of the best purses I ever made ended up going to someone in that swap. :)
Ok, back to this swap. I had mailed out my package and then had been busy enough that I completely forgot about it so I was pleasantly surprised to find this in my mailbox. It was a little big to just be a tea cup. It was sent to me by Dee in Colorado and was just so lovely!

Here is a look at what was inside my box. She sent me the teacup as I expected, a nice dark coffee, some cookies, a mug rug, a book to read while I have my coffee and some beautiful fabric with teacups on it!

Here is a closer look at the teacup. I love the blues in it and it just took me right back to a little cafe in Mildenhall where I used to grab a cup of tea with a friend.

Thank you Stephanie for organizing this exchange and thank you very much to Dee for such a lovely package! I really do love it!

If you would like to see the other tea cup and mug reveals you can go here and take a look. What fun this was!

Hello Kris~ I'm visiting you from my dear Stephanie's party, so nice to "meet" you.
What a beautiful tea cup and lovely matching gifts to go along with it.
I had the joy of sending a mug to Dee.

Enjoy your treasures ♡

Blue is my favourite colour so of course I love your new teacup! The swap is such wonderful fun and it's such a special thing Stephanie does to organize it (and us all!!).

Oh, how neat that your pretty new teacup takes you back to a happy memory.

Your treasures are just lovely. Isn't the exchange fun???

The best part is the making of new friendships, though, for sure.

Have a wonderful weekend.

What a pretty teacup. Blue and white never go out of style! The fabric with teacups is also lovely.
