Tea Cup Exchange #12, at The Enchanting Rose

I joined in the Tea Cup Exchange hosted by
blogger Stephanie of 
The Enchanting Rose blog

It was her 12th exchange!

Her exchanges are wonderful!  So many folks sign up,
I really don't know how she manages it all, but it is always 
successful and such fun to meet new friends.

I received my generously wonderful package from my new
friend Lauren, who lives in Illinois.   She loves vintage too, 
we seem to have lots in common.  

Wow, it was too pretty to open...but I did!  
I took everything out...there was a lot, and enjoyed the
beauty of it all, like a kid at Christmas!  

Eventually I did open everything.  I love it all, right down to 
the flower blooms she decorated the package with.

I received a large ball jar filled with Homemade Hand Scrub.  I've been planting 
this week, so these were perfect.  She sent me lavender from her garden
 to steep for tea.  She used a vintage Hellman's mayo jar for that, sweet!

I also received a bag of  yummy Sangria Serenade tea, a beautiful spoon,
garden gloves, Godiva chocolate, Wildflower seed mix, and a
squeaky toy for Doyle!  He loves those toys and comes running 
whenever he hears that "squeak" sound.  How did Lauren
know that?  She included a beautiful handmade card with a 
lovely note.  Everything was so thoughtful, just perfect!  

Wait, I did not forget the star of the show, this gorgeous tea cup!

I really can't thank Lauren or Stephanie enough for their
generosity.  Lauren's generous package and Stephanie's 
generous giving of her time and all the work that goes into
hosting her exchanges.

Be sure to visit her blog on May 17th, when she will be posting
 photos of the teacups and mugs received, and links to the
posts by bloggers that joined in.  Eye candy for sure!

I sent a package to Janice in Washington, but in my haste
forgot to take photos!  Janice doesn't have a blog, but
I'm sure it will be posted in the Enchanting Rose reveal.  

Thanks for visiting my friends!
