My Sweet Goodies From The 12th Tea Cup and Mug Exchange

A cup of tea
shared with a friend
is happiness tasted
and time well spent.




Hello, my friends!
I trust you are well on this lovely day in May.
As many of you know
I hosted the 12th Tea Cup and Mug Exchange in April
and now it's time for the fun reveal.
I thought I would show you my tea cup and mug gifts today
and tomorrow will be the big reveal for everyone that participated.
I hope you'll stop by tomorrow or the days after
to see the many tea cups and mugs that were exchanged around the world.

Now sit back and relax, dear ones,
while I show you the goodies that I was blessed with.
June sent the loveliest mug package my way
and oh, what sweet treats she included!




This generous lady knows me to a "tea"
because the gifts she included were pink 
and covered in roses {my favorite}.




As I opened the box 
I pulled out dish after dish. . .
a heart dish with a single pink rose on it,
a small plate perfect for holding a tea bag,
a sugar bowl,
a creamer,
and a beautiful mug.




June also blessed me with two beautiful spoons.
As you can see the one has a pretty heart on the end.




The mug itself is lovely 
and perfectly dainty.




And to top everything off
June gave me a glass bird, a wonderful novel, 
two flower doilies, tea, coffee, 
and treats for my sweet tooth.
I am truly humbled by all that she gave me.




And now let me show you the wonderful tea cup delights
that Lisa gifted to me.
Everything arrived in this box
all beautifully wrapped and neatly tucked inside.




Lisa made it possible for me
to have a fun and festive tea party 
with the items she gave me.




She sent me a stunning Haviland Limoge tea cup
that was from her very own collection.
Wow! 
What an honor to add it to my collection!




Glittery gold stars
and gold star lights brought a smile to my face.
They will be the perfect addition to a whimsical tea party.




And to add to that whimsical tea party,
pretty little candles along with confetti balloons.




Lisa also included some delicious tea
and two beautiful vintage jewelry pieces.




I am incredibly thankful for the love and kindness
Lisa poured into my tea cup parcel.

Both June and Lisa went above and beyond 
in all that they gave me.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, ladies!




Before I bring this post to a close,
I thought I would show you the packages 
that I sent to Libby and Jeanie.

The tea cup parcel went to Libby
who blogs at




The tea cup trio was found at my new favorite Etsy shop
She has a wonderful selection of tea cups
and she is one of the loveliest Etsy shop owners.




And the mug package went to Jeanie
who at this time does not have a blog.




I fell in love with the giraffe mug.




Friends and tea
make the world more beautiful.

Thank you for visiting.
Please stop by tomorrow or sometime after
to see what the other ladies received during the exchange.

Wow! So much prettiness!! Both of your boxes certainly were full to the brim with beautiful gifts!! I have to say that the giraffe mug is my stand out favorite! That is the cutest thing -- does it have a "maker" or brand on it? My daughter loves giraffes and she'd love that mug! Thanks for all of your hard work on this exchange-- what a joy it is!
