Participating Is Fun!

The lovely Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose 
hosted her Ninth annual teacup and mug exchange.
There were 192 tea lovers participating from all over the world.
What a lot of work and
What a lot of Love Stephanie puts into this exchange.

I decided to go all out and take part in both exchanges. 

In this post, I'm sharing the beautiful, 
vintage teacup that Nora Chin of Teacup Tales sent to me.
It is a Royal Albert from her own collection.
How lucky am I??

Royal Albert Teacup

The teacup was just the first of the goodies in the box.

Royal Albert Teacup

A box of Numi organic tea: Gunpowder Green.
Must be ESP ... Gunpowder Green is one of my favorite teas.


Wonderful Autumn decor.

Perfect kitchen towel for the fall that I put immediately to work!
I love owls -- isn't he cute ... look at those big feet!
I needed a small pumpkin.

Zipper Owl

They all look great with the rest of the gang!


One more sweet item that is hard to see.
Nora sent a plant stake that has a glow-in-the-dark ball.
In the evening it looks like the frog is visited by a fairy!


Thank you, Nora!
I had so much fun opening your box.
I love everything you picked for me. 

Thanks again to Stephanie for arranging the exchange.


Wishing YOU well and much joy!

The Enchanting Rose

Nora is the best! Last year I received a lovely box from her also. Her hand lettering is impeccable! What a beautiful teacup and other lovelies you received! What fun. Have a beautiful week!

Nora is indeed a beautiful and precious lady. The tea cup she sent is quite the beauty and how special that it's from her very own collection.

The owl she included is adorable and brought a smile to my face :)

Thank you, lovely lady, for joining the tea cup exchange this year. It was a joy to have you participate with us. Hugs!
