Beauty is in Every Day

Hello!  I have been blessed to join in with Stephanie's Tea Cup Exchange again this year.  
You can find the Exchange Reveal HERE

I received this amazing box from Marina.  She hardly used any packing for it was stuffed with goodies that kept everything in it's place and safe!  (The tea cup was packed well inside a box within the box though!)

I laid all the goodies out on a chair for you to see.  
There is a wonderful cookbook, and some amazingly sweet cupcake papers.  
I've never seen any so lovely! 

Beautiful napkins and some treats for my doggie from her doggie! 
Very thoughtful!  

There was a lovely ball of spring yarn. 

A wonderful array of tea and hot chocolate! 
Then some yummy chocolate tea cookies.

A sweet little tea pot dish to hold tea bags and spoons.  
I've always wanted one of these. :) 

A great pair of oven mitts and a cute cupcake towel.

Then comes the tea cup.....and it's got my favourite bedding plant flower on it! 
Lovely pansies!!!

It is an Elizabethan tea cup from England. 
I thought it was even more fitting for my middle name is Elizabeth. 


I pared it up with my pansy tea pot and plate (which is missing the cup) 
so now it's a full set of pansies for me. 

I tried the cinnamon spice with orange blossom she gave me first. 
It's so delicious! 

Then a wonderful card and sweet note from her.  
I love all the thought and creativity she put into the package. 
I'm so blessed!!!!

Now here is what I sent to Lynda in New Brunswick.

I found this sweet tea cup set and it came in a beautiful box. 
It's called Blooms.

I made a couple doilies to go with her tea set.

I love that this tea cup has some sweet flowers in the inside to. 
As you can see below, there is an array of colour and blooms all over. 

I found some tea from the Northwest Territories, 
containing much of what we have here in the Yukon. 
Along with a box of Stash tea that had a few kinds to choose from.

She said she liked sewing so I made her a pin cushion, and also 
she likes to crochet/knit so I sent along a ball of yarn to match things. 

Lastly I made her a card with some bright roses.  To go along with my letter to her.

I had lots of fun putting together a package, and being able to meet new ladies. 
Praying they each were blessed by this exchange as I am.

The teacup you gifted is perfect for Springtime.
Many exchanges ago, my dear Stephanie had a lovely lady from Italy send my teacup and it was one of those Cashmere teacups, they are so Beautiful!

Beautiful post ~

Such thoughtful and pretty gifts both given and received. How lovely you had something to match the pretty pansy cup/saucer.

Ooooh, what a stunning package from Marina! It looks like the box was filled to the brim with tea delights :) And those cupcake liners are just the cutest!

The tea cup you sent to Lynda is quite pretty and I just love the happy, bright colors.

Thanks for joining the exchange. Hugs!

Such delights found in your gift box, how sweet of your new friend to send such thoughtful gifts for you, and a treat for your doggie too! Oh the teacup is gorgeous, it looked beautiful with the rest of your pansy china! And to have your middle name match the name of the teacup, very special indeed! The gorgeous teacup you sent to Lynda is stunning! I love the flowers at the bottom too! Such a fun exchange, so sad that this was the last one, but we have such beautiful friendships that will last on because of it :) Blessings and hugs to you sweet friend!

What a beautiful bounty you received and sent along!! The teacups are real beauties, and I love that yours now completes a small tea set. The teacup you sent is wonderful! A very modern take on the old-fashioned teacup. Have a wonderful weekend Jennifer!

Purple is my favourite colour so I adore the teacup that you received from Marina. I'm also admiring the cute little teabag holder.

The teacup that you sent to Lynda is beautiful. I love the bright colours and the flowers at the bottom of the cup.
