This was the most fun "swap" I have ever participated in!! Stephanie over at The Enchanting Rose was our hostess and I think enchanting is the perfect word to describe Stephanie!!
The Tea Cup is the main ingredient in our package of goodies and then we are given a list of fun ideas to supplement the Tea Cup we have chosen. My list was pretty sparse as this is my first (but hopefully not my last) exchange but my package was glorious!!
I received a package from the darling Pamela over at The Lady of the House Speaking and she is a true Anglophile!! Go check out her blog, it is fascinating!!
And so here is what Pamela sent to me:
Opps, as you can see if you look closely, the Walker's Shortbread and one of the cookies were gone before I got the picture taken!! That's because Walker's Shortbread is one of my most favorite things in the whole wide world!!
Thank you Pamela, I LOVE all my fun goodies and the tea cup is exactly like the set of dishes that my Grandmother (Nana) had when we were growing up. I remember spending Saturday nights with my Grandparents and getting to drink tea out of one of these cups with a scoop of ice cream on the side. I would always take some of the ice cream and put it in my tea. I don't think that is English style but yum, the memories just flooded back when I unwrapped the cup!!
And Pamela told me that the little pink doily was handmade by a 90-year-old French woman!! How cool is that!!
I am looking forward to the next Exchange!! Thank you Stephanie for hosting this very excitting exchange!!
P.S. Stephanie was who I sent a little package to - go check out what everyone plus Stephanie got HERE - I had soooo much fun putting her package together. Ya know, I was the teacher's pet on this Exchange!! Hee! Hee!!
