Tea Cup/Mug Exchange

Hi Friends~
What fun we all had at this year's Teacup/Mug exchange hosted by the talented
and wonderful Stephanie from 

This was the first year for me to participate and it was so much fun to prepare a teacup gift for my
new friend Betty in California.
She does not have a blog, but is a reader and sweetheart of a quilter and talented lady.
Betty choose a teacup to receive and I did as well.

Before I share my gift to Betty,
I'll share and show you the precious package I received from
Linda, from mysewwhatblog,  also my new talented blog friend.

Loved the polka dot paper she wrapped the delivery box in.

And this is what I greeted with when I opened the box.

A special note card~

oh~~ and goodies layered to surprise!!

Loved how Linda wrapped the contents in neutral papers and white stretch ribbons.

I just love the beautiful blue "forget me nots" teacup she sent 
made in England.

Linda included a special vintage napkin which will look perfect displayed with the cup.

She also spoiled me with organic wild berry tea and delicious honey
from France.

And, as a special touch Lina included this darling Harvest Angel she so wonderfully created
in beautiful elements and trims.

Love the ruffled trim on her dress.

Linda designs these angels and they are available in her etsy shoppe 
Eastern Ave Designs
She is very talented and you will enjoy visiting her shop.

Thank you Linda for the special and wonderful teacup and gifts you sent.
I am enjoy each item and the best part, making new friends in blogland.

Here is the darling teacup along with the vintage napkin sitting on a recent junkin find.

Next are a few pics of the goodies I sent to my new teacup friend, Betty.

A special card~

Time for tea book to relax with
 along with one of my hand painted rose bookmarks.

Special teacup from Germany 
hand painted with harvest fruits.

This is a little rooster and hen teabag holder.

A new tea I found, Breakfast in Paris. 

and, some chocolate chip cookies to have with her tea.

I packed her goodies in a hat box I painted just for her.

It was so much fun having Betty to prepare my gift for her.
And, the talented quilter that she is
sent me a beautiful thank you note and card along with
this very special quilted mug or teacup rug she created.

Thank you Betty I love this and will cherish it always.

So this was the fun for all participating this year.

 for hosting and all that she did to prepare, plan and pair us with others to send our gifts.
