Tea Cup Sharing

Happy Friday friends, I hope you had a nice week, mine actually flew by.

I know that out there in blog land, there are always exchanges of one kind or another going on and they always have looked like fun but I had never joined in on one before. When Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose offered a tea cup exchange, well, I couldn't help but join in on that one and add to my collection.



Am I glad I decided to give this exchange a chance...this is what showed up on my doorstep from Vee over at 'A Haven for Vee'.  What a thrill to see a tea cup with the same roses that grow along our drive!



I also smiled when she said that she put in the tea because it matched the cup as that is what I did with the package that I sent to my recipient.



Here is a special trinket that Vee put in as a bonus, a sweet little magnet with two little girls having a tea party.


This was so much fun and this cup will be a reminder, every time I use it, how very special blogging is and all of  the new friends I meet through it.

Thanks Vee for this lovely gift and your new friendship.

And a big thank you to Stephanie for hosting this fun exchange!  You can go and visit at her place (here) if you would like to see the rest of treasures that we all got.

Wishing you all a happy weekend.  xo

Stephanie said...

Hi dear Sherri! Your tea cup is certainly a lovely addition to your home. The handle on it is simply beautiful! I have never tried that kind of tea before, but it sounds quite delicious - you will have to let me know how it is :)

It was such a sweet blessing to have you join, dear friend. You are a sweetheart!

Love and hugs!

Oh I this this is one of my favorites tea cup exchanges. It looks so simple and beautiful indeed.
Stephanie really did a good job.

Have a good day my friend!

Vee said...

Those are the roses that grow along your drive? Wow. That is a God breeze...thank you for sharing that piece of information. This has certainly been a lot of fun and, as wonderful as it has been to receive a gift in the mail, far better to gain a new friend.
