Tea Cup Exchange Autumn 2016

It's time for the big reveal of 
Stephanie's Tea Cup Exchange!

I am so excited to share with you the treasures
 that I so generously received!

My exchange was just absolutely PERFECT for me.

Margaret from San Antonio had me - 
she isn't a blogger yet but wishes to be soon.

If she ever does I will announce it on my blog
so you can find her....
because we all need friends to follow us here, right?

Look at these two beauties I received!

As most of you know I collect super delicate antique china tea cups.

 What a wonderful surprise to receive a modern heavier
 (safer/more usable)
 stoneware teacup in my favorite neutral ivory with a BIRD on it!

I ADORE this teacup and have used it every single day
 since my package arrived! Thank you SO much, Margaret!!

Just look at this gorgeous goldfinch glass painted plate!!!!!!!
Is that just the most lovely plate ever?!!???

It's the perfect size for serving teatime snacks with a friend.

Even the saucer is bird shaped.  : - )

She also sent me a few tea bags of kinds I had never before tried-
and in my eagerness to sip them (and only after enjoying)
 did I remember that I hadn't taken a pic of them. Oops. 


In the box was this gorgeous hardmade card, too. 

I keep it on my computer right here next to me
kept up by my pretty birdie magnets.

It brings me such joy when I see it, and tells me to 

As you can clearly see, my teacup fits right in perfectly
with my home decor.

I couldn't be more pleased.
Again, thank you, dear Margaret.

The swap partner Stephanie chose for me to send treasures to
was Janice from Missouri,  who writes the blog

Click on her blog name above to see what I sent her, if you'd like.


I highly encourage all of you to go check out all the swapping fun.

Just click on the box above to get there.

As always, thank you for your visit!
