Tea Cup Exchange

 
Being a new blogger this was my first time participating in the Tea Cup Exchange! 
It was so much fun that my calendar will be marked as soon as the next one is announced.
I received this beautiful package of goodies from Lauren @
My Wonderfully Made
The tea cup and saucer are adorned with roses and a tea infuser was included to hold the yummy organic ginger tea!
A book of hand painted tea cup illustrations.
A lovely plaque handmade and signed by Lauren.
A dainty lace trimmed napkin and card hand stamped by Lauren.
This brightly colored basket will be great to store some of my sewing and crafting supplies.
Thank you again Lauren for all the pretty items you so thoughtfully put together.
I love everything!!
Special thanks to Stephanie @
for her creative ways in allowing all of us to make some new friends :)

  1. Hi Karen, What a lovely teacup you received from Lauren. Such pretties she included with it too. So glad you could join in and enjoy the exchange. Stephanie does such a wonderful job of pulling it all together for everyone and for so many exchanges of 8 seasons.
    So nice to see you this morning and thank you for stopping by. Have a blessed day sweet friend. xo

  2. Karen,
    Very pretty goodies in your tea cup exchange from Lauren. I bet it's exciting when the package is delivered and the contents are revealed. But the best part is the friendships formed and the sharing. The exchange Stephanie hosts looks very delightful to participate in.
    xoxo,
    Vera

    1. I did receive your card...love the fabric tea cup on it! I am so glad the tea cup set matches your décor. It's funny how that worked out because I ordered it before Stephanie matched us up :)
