Spring 2018 Tea Cup Exchange Reveal!

Oh, my golly, what fun are these teacup exchanges!

Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose painstakingly and selflessly
puts together the most amazing teacup exchange twice a year.

Thank you so much, Stephanie for this fun event!

I was the happy recipient of a box of treasures from Teresa, 
who resides here in my state of Ohio.

Perhaps one day we are lucky enough to meet in person for tea! 

Here are all my surprises all laid out before opening.....
felt like a holiday - and so much was wrapped so prettily!

Here is my chintz Gracie China teacup!

I have actually used it every day since it's arrival!
Here is a shot of my enjoying my tea in the garden.

 Teresa typed me a wonderful note
 on the most gorgeous teacup paper!

I received all sorts of wonderful teas in my package
- most I have never tried before-
and it has been such fun to have new tastes to try!

I received cookies and candies and recipes, pretty notepad,
 tea themed napkins, gel pens (always wanted them!)
 and a beautiful Emilie Barnes Devotional.

I have a friend who has one that I have always admired!
It's so perfect to put in my guest room to share with my
tea sister "besties" when they visit!

I put my yummies on one of my trays to "style" it for the big reveal!

I must confess ate this yummy crunchy honey-crunch candy bar
 before I'd even finished taking pictures!

I love this beautiful pad -
 now I can give my hubs his Honey Do list in style, haha!

Just kidding. It's not long enough-
will have to keep it for my own "to do" lists!

: - )

The paper tea-cup themed napkins will come in handy
 for those little impromptu tea times
 I have for my neighbor Dee when she visits....
we both have a rule to never use linen when it's just us!
(She will like them very much, too!)

I am so excited to have my very own gel pens.
 And the colors are perfect!!!!!

The experts are now saying dark chocolate has some health benefits!

Thank you, Teresa, for caring about my health
 in such a deliciously thoughtful way! 

Chocolate shortbread cookies and tea time = a perfect marriage!

Teresa read up on my blog and knows about my grand daughter -
 and thoughtfully sent a sweet little book for me to read to her.

I couldn't even believe it!
 That was so so sweet! And our sweet girl LOVES it, too!

Teresa said I'd understand why she sent it 
when I got to the last page!

And I sure do!!

Thank you very much, Teresa, and also thanks to you, too,  Stephanie
 for making this spring teacup exchange so very special for me.

In typical fashion I got too excited about putting together
 my package that went out to Jocelyn in Colorado
that I didn't take a single photo of the things I sent.

She has the blog Miss Joss Shabby Life
and you can find her reveal here.
