Tea Cup and Mug Exchange Reveal

Hi Friends!

Hope you are all enjoying the month of April.

Today is the reveal 
The Tea Cup and Mug Exchange.

Bloggers and friends from all over the world,
join in to exchange
and make new friends.

has been our hostess for 8 years.
She does an excellent job organizing 
the work involved to make it special for everyone.

I received a beautiful tea cup from
Judy Frey of Pennsylvania.
She does not have a blog
but we have already become friends through email.

Here are the special gifts she blessed me with in our exchange.

When I opened the box, Judy had placed all the goodies securely
inside a pretty gift bag.

I opened the bag to find all these special treats.

Starting with one of the pretties teacups ever.
I love the butterfly design and wings on the saucer
which has a unique shape.

Irish Breakfast tea, darling tea bag holder,
note pad and sweet note.

Along with this darling keepsake porcelain box with delicate roses.

Tucked inside was  healthy Dove dark chocolate.

Love this Lily of the Valley Yardley soap.

Sweet seeds to plant in my garden.

a darling tea towel
 with pretty teacups in spring colors.

Thank you Judy for all these wonderful treasures.
I had so much fun opening my gift
I've been so enjoying my new tea cup in my collection.

My gift  tea cup went to Marilyn Miller
and you can visit her

So nice to make two new friends
in this exchange.

Thank you Stephanie for all you do
to bring us another fun exchange.

Thank you for stopping by to visit.
I've been away for awhile

Hello Celestina~~Oh it is so good to see you post!! I have missed you lovely lady, but those breaks must come to us when needed.
Judy Frey...I gave a tea cup to her, and I am so enjoying her friendship through our e mails, she is precious. That tea cup is quite unique, and a beautiful color. I have never seen anything like it before.
She graced you with some other lovely gifts as well, enjoy.

Your gift package to Marilyn is beyond beautiful, Celestina. The grace and beauty of your hands warms my heart so...Her heart must have been overjoyed when she received it.

Much love to you~~
