Hello , hello dear readers from a cloudy Athens!
Today’s post is about a very successful and pleasant exchange of tea cups and mugs that a lovely lady , Stephanie of The Enchanting Rose very generously hosted for 11th time this autumn.
The idea is that you make new friends from all over the world by exchanging not only a lovely cup and saucer or /and mug with them , but also some sweet treats, handmade items and other little , pretty items.
I participated in this exchange for the first time this year and I enjoyed it very much.
I sent a parcel to Lilian from Cornwall, in which I put a white china cup and saucer, a little decorative handmade cushion, a cloth napkin, some sweet treats , coffee, tea, cocoa and a card.
The lady who sent me a parcel with goodies is called Debbie and she comes from the UK (North East Lincolnshire) . Her blog is fairybluebellscraftadventure .
The photos that follow show what she very generously put together for me.
I was glad to receive a pink cup and saucer with golden details. Pink is my favourite colour and Debbie’s choice was perfect for me!
She accompanied her gifts to me with a lovely postcard .
Thank you Debbie , very much and thank you Stephanie for all the hard work and love you put to this nice exchange!
If you wish to find out more about this exchange and see photo snaps of the contents of all the parcels sent (more than 200 ladies participated!!! ) , please visit Stephanie’s blog and feast your eyes on the beauty of the items sent and received! You may also wish to join the fun next year!!
I will leave you now dear friends wishing you a wonderful weekend with the people you love and your most favourite activities!

Such beautiful pretties you were gifted, Tina. That pretty teacup with the gold details is so pretty. I can, in my mind's eye, see that sweet little bear decoupaged by your clever hands. Stephanie's teacup/mug exchange is always the best fun.ReplyDelete
