Tenth Tea Cup and Mug Exchange





Today is the big reveal.




Stephanie is definitely the hostess with the mostess! 
She makes the exchange so much fun and I can't imagine what a lot
of time and energy must go into arranging the exchange.
And, the amount of LOVE that Stephanie pours in.

So, here we go!  


This was the second time that I participated in both the mug and teacup exchange.


Mug Exchange


The pretty mug is from Grace Bone China.
The decoration reminds me of a water-color painting.
I smiled when I opened the package.
The sugar cookie mix with the bunny on the front was the first thing I saw.
Cute carrot cookie cutter, too!

I've put the pretty towels directly to work in the kitchen.
Such pretty spring colors.

I love lemon everything 
so I am really enjoying the Lemon organic tea by Moringa Tea.

This was Stacey Keeling's first time to participate in the exchange.
I was so lucky to be paired with her.
You can visit with Stacey at her lovely blog: Poofing The Pillows.
Thank you, Stacey!

The beautiful Chatsworth Duchess Bone China teacup
came from Caroline (Carrie) May.
You can visit Carrie at her blog: Tea Time Journeys.

I love the cup with it's spring flowers -- especially the Morning Glory.
The box Carrie sent was filled with goodies:
an assortment of teas,
(I really enjoy trying all sort of teas and this was perfect.)
hand lotion,
chocolate,
a wonderful counted cross-stitch of a cat
(can't wait to start)
and
an iced fortune cookie strategically placed in the tea cup!

I had never tried an iced fortune cookie
and was in such a hurry to taste it that I ate part of the fortune!
Nevertheless, the fortune said good things were coming and tasted yummy.

Thank you, Carrie.
It was such a joy to open my spring tea package.


Another big thank you, hugs and love to Stephanie.


Wishing YOU well and much joy!

Stephanie said...

Good morning, lovely lady! Oh, how I love seeing the beautiful tea cup and mug packages that are prepared and sent during this beloved exchange. The bunny theme mug box is just too cute! What a fun little parcel to receive right at Springtime.

And the tea cup from Carrie made my heart go pitter patter! It's stunning!

I am so glad you joined the exchange for a second time. Hugs to you, dear one!

Oh, Sharon - both your treasured boxes of goodies are beautiful!

I think that's the prettiest mug I have ever seen. I only have done teacup exchanges - who knew mugs could be so pretty?

Your teacup is beautiful too - and all the sweet and thoughtful extras your partners sent, what blessings!

This is the 3rd time I have exchanged and I won't miss another as long as that sweet angel Stephanie is willing to put it together. Bless her soul - what a wonderful thing she does for all of us!

Your lovely packages made me smile. Besides ogling the tea pretties, I also enjoy learning about the different brands/flavours of teas during the big reveal.
