Tea Cup Exchange Reveal!

Good day everyone! Today is the day we reveal the tea cup exchange hosted by Stephanie! Bless her        sweet heart for arranging all the exchanges and matching us all up with wonderful people :-)

First I will share what I received from Teri in my tea cup exchange :-) Such a delightful package I received!

                             Inside were these adorable ladybug notes, perfect for Spring!

She also knew I was in NC and remembered how beautifully the dogwood trees bloomed so she thought the dogwood blooms on the tea cup would be perfect to send and she was right! I love it :-)

This is a dogwood sculpture she had a friend make and I will treasure it. I love handmade things so very much and it will remain special to me and my family.

Also included was a cinnamon scented candle, one of my favorite scents and it was to compliment the tea choice.

                                   Really love this tea cup and saucer... can you tell? ;-)

                                     Teri also included a handmade note and chai tea :-)

THANK YOU again so very much Teri I truly enjoyed my package and all the goodies! So very thoughtful of you :-)

                                     This next reveal is what I sent out to Beverly :-)

Can't wait to visit everyone's blogs and see all the exchanges :-) Such a great idea! Thank you again to Stephanie for arranging everything and doing such a great job!! :-)

Oh Jill, what lovely gifts you received from Teri!! Yes, I can tell that you adore the dogwood teacup. Isn't it special when there's a spray of flowers inside the cup, too? You also sent such thoughtful gifts to Beverly, and I know she will enjoy each and every thoughtfully chosen item. Yes, our dearest Stephanie is such a gem in all the work that she does through her teacup/mug ministry.
I hope you're feeling better and stronger each day!

Hi Jill,
I love both packages! The dogwood tea cup was such a thoughtful choice and the sculpture piece is amazing! There is nothing more special than a handmade gift. I'm sure you will treasure it! The package you sent was lovely! The book caught my eye, I haven't seen it anywhere but I know I have to have it!!! the tea cup is very pretty and I love the rose design on it and the matching spoon. Love the little needlepoint tea cup. The verse is so sweet! Nice to meet you and thank you for stopping by my blog this morning! Enjoy!

Stephanie said...

Oh Jill, both tea cups are extraordinary! The dogwood blossom tea cup from Teri is ever so pretty and I just love how she coordinated everything to go with the blossoms. What a beautiful idea!

And be still my heart....the tea cup you sent to Beverly is just precious! I have never seen such a sweet pattern before - is it from Japan?

Thank you, dearest friend, for joining the exchange. I am glad you had a delightful time :) Love and hugs to you!

I always love peeking at what people give and receive in the exchanges. There are always so many personalized and thoughtful gifts...and so many pretty cups. I love that title of that book. Might have to peek around the library for that one! Enjoy your goodies!

Now that sounds like an exchange I would like to be a part tea and I have a collection of tea cups too. I will be going to a secret stamper revealing party this Sunday to see who had my name and who I had. We were to send 12 images and make a card for that person and visa versa.....I'll be putting the cards up that I made in the next few days. Have a great day.....oh and love the tea cups you send and received.

Michele said...

What wonderful treasures both coming and going! (The book you sent I read last year, it was so good.)

This was my 3rd time in the exchange. (I have only exchanged teacups so far.) I always forget to photograph what I send out. Cynthia send a package of treasures to me, and is now a new friend. I am so blessed.

I will always try to join in on the exchange fun as long as I am able, and as long as Stephanie is willing to sweetly organize it. ♥

Blessings my friend, xo

Oh Jill, your gifts are so special with the dogwood blossom theme! And your gifts to your friend are so lovely as well. I always say I'm going to join in this exchange and fail to do so. I need to do that when the next exchange happens. I hope you are doing well and enjoying a lovely Spring. ♥

Hello Jill,

What a lovely gift box you received from Teri. You did such a beautiful job of displaying everything.

And you sent such a lovely package to Beverly. You have such an artful eye.

I hope that you are doing well with your recovery. Another book installment comes your way next Tuesday, God willing, when I am out and about again.

I haven't participated in Stephanie's tea cup exchange yet, but I love to see all the pretty tea cups and goodies that everyone got. That rose tea cup and saucer is beautiful. And I love that porcelain doll and red rose coaster. So many lovelies on here today. Thanks for sharing, Jill.

HI! Such a thoughtful personal package you received. That delicate tea set is wonderful and the homemade sculpture is going to be so nice to display.
Such a gorgeous tea set you found to send, and it looks like you had a wonderful time finding items to tuck in the box along with it. :)
