TEA BASKET SWAP


I am probably the last tea-swapper to post about their treasures!
I received mine right before going on sabbatical to concentrate on
the graduation of my son from high school...more about that later!

My swapping partner was the famous and incredible
I am completely overwhelmed with how she lavished
upon me the most charming gifts.


The exquisite details just took my breath away!


I loved the way she wrapped and embellished each precious piece!


The pictures do not do these amazing cups justice.
Don't you love these adorable little fabric and pearl flowers?



I was blessed with an abundance of teacups!
Three new magnificent china cups to add to my collection! 




I have never seen a teacup like this one before - it is so unique and different.
I love the intricate flower design, gold trim and words beautifully embossed.
It is truly something to behold! 


This little cup is sweet and delicate - it is like spring time coming to my home!
It reminds me of the sun shining on a lush flower garden.


I adore this elegant teacup.  It is very hard to even decide on a favorite,
but this cup sings royalty to me - it is the princess among them all.


There were many surprises tucked into my basket.
The Tablescaper did not realize that purple is my favorite color
or that I absolutely swoon over organza pouch bags! 
Look at this marvelous bag holding a fragrant lavender candle!
There are even beads dangling on the bottom and gold cord at the top. 



I also received these fluffy yellow chicks to add to my table and there
was a package of yummy gourmet jelly beans hiding in a blue sparkly egg box. 


These shiny jewel-like eggs are an absolute favorite!
They are actually place card holders!  I love them!!
So whimsical and fancy!

I cannot thank The Tablescaper
enough for this beloved gift package.
You are a real gem!!
Thank you Martha and Terri for hosting this wonderful swap!
I can hardly wait for the next one!

Pursue the practice of hospitality.
