Stephanie's Tea Cup Exchange! What Fun!

I have seen tea cup exchanges in blog posts but never participated until now. I was reading a post at a blog that intrigued me with photos of her teacup exchange package and the reveal of its lovely contents over at Vee's (A Haven for Vee) and after reading her post, I knew I was going to be IN the next time around. 

The recipient of my teacup package was Stephanie--the "hostess with the mostess" of this wonderful teacup exchange. She blogs over at the The Enchanting Rose. It has been such a pleasure meeting and getting to know her over a few emails, posts and of course tea! Her blog is wonderful too! I neglected to take a photo of the teacup I sent Stephanie but you can find photos at the link I posted above.

Look at the beautiful teacup I received in the mail! The very kind lady who mailed me my package was Sandra and she blogs over at Tea and Simplicity and Ravenhill Cottage. I felt pampered after opening her package. I found it waiting for me on my porch after spending 7 exhausting hours on the road. To say I needed a cup of comfort at that very moment was an understatement!

Also in my package was this lovely hand knit dishcloth that Sandra knitted. What a pretty shade of pink!.......

some delicious raspberry tea which I tried right away--ahhhhhh and yum!

and she also included the sweet floral stickers pictured above!

Inside this envelope was a very nice note written by Sandra.

The notecard was covered in teacups! Very cute and theme appropriate!

To my two new friends:
Stephanie, thank you so much for the opportunity to join your exchange! I am looking forward to the next one already.
Sandra, I will think of you every time I use the cup. (which is every day since I received it) It is so generous in size that I can have my morning coffee in it as well.
Thank you so much for my lovely package!
