Teacup Exchange Part 2

Each year, once in spring and once again in autumn 
sweet Stephanie from  The Enchanting Rose 
hosts a wonderful teacup swap!

This was my first year finally getting in on the fun,
 and what fun it has been!

I exchanged in two teacup swaps this time;
 therefore shall have to share them in two separate posts
because a single post is just too large.








I am so blessed and happy she paired me up
 for a second exchange with Tammy!


She wrote me the sweetest note
 on this lovely embossed roses and lace note paper,
telling me a bit about herself.








Isn't this an absolutely gorgeous teacup?

It's a lovely handpainted Japanese teacup & I love it!

I have a somewhat similar one so now have a close 
matching pair for when I have a guest over!
(So come on over, Tammy, let's sip!)

I adore its intricate botanical details
and embellished with such feminine swirls.









Also enclosed was a adorable little teapot spoon
that matches the set so nicely!









Beautiful Christian stickers were included

in her precious exchange gifts for me:









And the sweetest vintage

 embroidered rose runner!

Isn't it stunning!?









And tucked also inside the box was
three beautiful lace napkins.

They are so soft, beautiful and delicate!
I wish you could feel them to know!










And to complete my teatime happiness-
some yummy chocolate raspberry sweets
and a huge sampler box of Bigelow teas!

(A variety pack will come in handy with the holidays coming up!)










Oh, thank you so much Tammy
for my wonderful teacup & exchange gifts!








And a HUGE thank you goes out to
 Stephanie
 for hosting such an amazing and fun swap!

It was a real pleasure to be part of it!

  1. Another great swap, you were certainly blessed with your partners, such generosity. The teacup and saucer were a real delight and I fell in love with the teaspoon, it is so different. Take care.

  3. What a pretty teacup, Michele! It does remind me of some of your china. If I remember correctly, you have a gorgeous set of Bavarian china. The tea spoon, tea, and linens all make this a truly lovely gift. You are blessed! Thank you for sharing all your delightful treasures from both exchanges with us. You must feel like a queen! Have a beautiful day.

    Blessings,

  17. Well, if this isn't just the sweetest and daintiest tea cup. Simply beautiful, my dear friend. And the table runner, oh my! It's glorious! Did the lovely Tammy make it herself?

    I can't tell you how grateful I am for you being willing to swap with two people - you are precious! And I am ever so glad to see you were richly blessed. Tammy sounds like a delightful lady just like you.

    Much love to you, Michele!

  21. Reading this makes me sad I sold all my pretty tea cups I could have used in a swap.
    I like seeing all your swap pictures that you got
