Tea Cup Exchange


Hi Friends,

I recently had another opportunity to take part in a tea cup exchange put on by Stephanie @ The Enchanting Rose  This is my third tea cup exchange and I have enjoyed everyone of them.  Stephanie works very hard matching people up and the tea cup exchange continues to grow with people taking part all over the world.  It's always exciting to open up the box of goodies and see all the wonderful surprises that your new tea cup buddy has sent to you and it's just as much fun to purchase items for the person you are sending to.

I received the following gifts from my new tea cup buddy, Lynda Ruth Bowers, in New Brunswick, Canada.  It looks like she put a lot of thought into all the wonderful gifts she sent to me.


Oh how I love Lupins.  We  have just a few of them in the garden and I have been wanting to plant more.  They are such a beautiful flower.


This is a pill case and it's absolutely perfect.  It's always handy to have one of these around.


    Lynda Ruth placed some pretty sea glass in the pill bottle, what a nice little extra detail.  It's also my colour.




I looked up the translation of the tea pot and google shows "the beauty of the beautiful".  For those of you that speak French...is this translation correct?  Or does it mean something a little different?  It's such a cute little single serving tea pot and tea cup.  I love the colours.


I was playing with my Ironstone in this photo, lol!!  I think it looks great together.


I also received some wonderful herbal teas.


My other new tea cup buddy is Andrea Ostapovitch @ My Everything Corner.  Andrea and I have been visiting each other's blogs for a while now, I always enjoy reading her posts.  I also love Frank.  If you want to know who Frank is, you'll have to drop in on her blog and discover for yourself lol.  He's a cutie!

Unfortunately, I didn't get the photos that I needed regarding what I sent to her, she does have everything posted on her blog though.  I did happen to take a picture of the pumpkin I made for her since she loves pumpkins.


I'm linking up this post at The Enchanting Rose so make a pot of tea and go have a look and see all the wonderful things that everyone received.

Thanks for stopping by.
