Tea Cup ~ Mug Exchange, Autumn 2015

Hi Friends~
Welcome to this year's Autumn Tea Cup Exchange
hosted by my dear friend

Stephanie has brought new friendships together from all over the world
in her twice a year event 
 to exchange teacups or mugs
 with fellow participants in blogland and beyond.
She is a blessing to all who know her 
God has shown favor upon Stephanie in her giving 
generosity in all she shares daily!


This season I had so much fun pulling together my gift to send
as well as receiving a beauty from 
my new friend

Here is a few pics when my treasure arrived.
How fun to open the box in anticipation of a new tea cup.

Beautiful card inside.

And the prettiest vintage teacup and matching saucer~ LOVE IT!

Cathy also included this pretty rose plate too.

Along with my favorite Earl Grey Creme tea.

These shortbread finger cookies were so delicious 
perfect with the tea.

All was positioned in this darling white weaved basket~

along with a ball of sugar and cream yarn.

Thank you so much Cathy for this incredible gift.
I love it all and was thrilled to add this pretty cup to my collection.

This year's exchange was again another blessing
and getting to know Cathy a sweet plus!

Thank you Cathy for all the goodies.
I am so enjoying everything
send Hugs and Love to you!

My new friend for sending a tea cup to was,

Of course I forgot to take photos of the gift I sent to her, 
but Kitty was so sweet to let me take a pic from her post to share.

 I so enjoyed meeting Kitty and was blessed to learn
she lives right here in Texas and not too far away.
We plan to meet up in the near future 
and of course I will  take you all along when we do.

Kitty sent me a gift in return as a thank you for her new teacup from me.

I was so blessed to open a package with a darling card~

perfect for the season with an endearing message inside.

Look what talented Kitty designed for my fall kitchen.

Her creation is stunning and her work incredible.

I've never owned a personalized towel for my kitchen 
  I just love it along with the delicious tea she added too.

Thank you Kitty for your gift back to me.
It was a sweet surprise and one I will cherish always.

Look how pretty it graces my kitchen.
Thank you!
Thank you!
But the best of all,
 is the friendships formed within these exchanges

Thank you Stephanie for hosting and bringing us all together.
God Bless Always.
