Tea Cup Exchange ~ The Enchanting Rose

Last month I participated in a Tea Cup Exchange hosted by
Stephanie of The Enchanting Rose.
I am a fairly new follower of Stephanie's blog, and am very happy
to have found her.  Such a talented and creative woman,
 Her posts are filled with eye candy and uplifting writings. 
Stephanie assigned our partners, send to one person, but receive from another. 
Two new friends! 
 I received my package from Kelly of Dreaming of Vintage.
Kelly sent an amazing package, with a gorgeous tea cup.

She is such a creative artist.  She made this gorgeous flower
as well as this beautiful card.

She packed all this wonderful gifts in a pretty Paris theme storage box.
Opening this package was like Christmas!  Kelly explained that she
really enjoys buying gifts (lots of gifts in this case) for others and
that it makes her happy.  Kelly rocks!  She is sweet and generous,
as well as extremely talented. 

Don't you love the spoon that holds the used tea bag?  The peony bouquet is
joining my Easter display.  Don't miss her little framed birdie creation.  Those
shortbread cookies are long gone, lol.  See that sweet honeypot?
I can't thank Kelly enough for her thoughtful generosity.
If this looks familiar to any of you who visit me regularly, yes I did show
photos when I received the package.  I knew the link party would be later, but
I was too excited not to share right away.  Plus, it is all well worth sharing twice!
I was assigned to send to Sara of Ensembles of the Past.
This link will take you to her website where you can view
 some of her gowns.  You can also find her on facebook. 
 She is an amazing seamstress of custom-made historical attire. 
I'll share a couple photos of what I sent to Sara since she does not have a blog.

Sara sent me this lovely thank you note & pressed leaf.
I so enjoyed this swap and hope to join Stephanie's next one this fall.
Thanks for taking the time to visit.  I hope you take a minute to visit
my new friends ~ Stephanie, Kelly and Sara, three exceptional women! 

(Pssst:  Next week I'll be posting about my Spring Giveaway.)
