Tea Cups Travel the World.....




My dear friend
Stephanie
of 

has hosted another of her world famous
Tea CupExchange
Parties



I was partnered with
Mimi
of

She sent me a beautiful tea cup named
Clementine
embellished with exquisite pink roses
of the vintage kind - my favourites




Also in the package were
a gorgeous heart
and
the prettiest beaded lace collar 
both hand made by Mimi.




I just love the sweet card Mimi made
for me as well.

Thank you
Mimi
You have spoiled me with
all these pretty gifts!




I sent my tea cup to

Trisha
of
and
it was my pleasure to find
the right tea cup for her



Stephanie had sent me an email
telling me Trisha's favourite colour was yellow
so when I spotted this bone china tea cup
in a little antique shop
I knew it would be perfect!
It is a Royal Albert cup
named

Primulette!

I hope Trisha loves it too.




I added some other 'tea related' bits and bobs
with a Kiwi flavour
to give her a taste of New Zealand.





Thank you
dear Stephanie for hosting another
of your lovely tea parties.

I know what a huge undertaking it is
and you run it like a professional!

Take care dear friends and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt


Shane

So nice to see all those wonderful teacups on the blogs. You received such a romantic one with old roses, a real gem. But I also love the yellow Royal Albert cup, Primulette, you should like to have it already only for the name.
Have a nice day!

Hi Shane, Love your teacup you received from Mimi. What a gorgeous pattern and so romantic. You sent such a beautiful cup to Trisha too and I am sure she was overjoyed as well.
What a lovely time had by all and I enjoyed this so much once again.
Stephanie is such a dear to pull this all together. It truly is a blessing to all. Have a wonderful day and sending hugs your way.

Stephanie said...

Dearest Shane, I cannot tell you how emotional I have been for the last couple of days...I feel like a leaky tea pot spout :) As I began putting the photos on my post I was once again amazed at the generosity of others. And then yesterday when the party opened and I began reading the post of other bloggers, well...I lost it! I stand in awe of the love, kindness, and generosity of others and I can't even begin to say how much it blesses my heart. I am thankful for YOU and for every other lady that joined the exchange - it's because of all of you that this exchange can take place and be a success.

Now onto those stunning tea cups! The one from Mimi is breathtaking, my friend. The softeness of the pink roses made me want to swoon :) And her handmade items are just the sweetest. And speaking of sweet, that is exactly what Mimi is. She is such a joy!

And the tea cup you sent to Trisha is quite the beauty...I am in love with it {{smiles}} You pour your heart into your packages, my friend, and I know Trisha was indeed blessed.

You are a precious friend, Shane, and I am grateful for you. Thanks for joining the fun. MUCH LOVE!

Good morning, Shane. How lovely to see the teacups both received and given. They are both so very pretty. Primulette is delightful for spring! Your new teacup will grace your tea table with beauty. Have a wonderful day - is it getting warm for you yet? Our weather is cooling off, but still very pleasant.

SpicingUpIdaho said...

Such a lovely package of joy! The handmade collar is most unique! And your Clementine tea cup is gorgeous! What fun it was to be part of this amazing exchange thanks to Stephanie!! Have a blessed day:)

Madelief said...

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Shane,
At least you did receive and mail out some gorgeous teacups! Love the selections made.
Nowadays anything mailed is a big risk, it often looks like they toss things around as a game for breaking it up.
Sending you hugs and wishing a happy weekend.
Mariette

Margie said...

What a gorgeous teacup! I love how the pretty pink roses look against the aqua background. Yellow is one my favourite colours so I'm also a huge fan of the teacup that you sent me Trisha. Also love that your packaged includes goodies unique to New Zealand! I try to send "Made in Canada" goodies to my swap partners too!

Your teacups are lovely! All of them are gorgeous. What fun it was to be part of this amazing exchange. Thanks for sharing!

Magpie's Mumblings said...

Beautiful teacups! They made me think of my grandmother who had a large collection of them. I inherited two or three but often wonder what ever happened to the rest.

Debbie Harris said...

Hello Dear Shane~~ I would say that I am quite late in visiting some of you in this beautiful exchange my dear Stephanie graces us with.
I have not been around in the community due to being away looking after my mother. I'm still away but squeezing in some visits.
Mimi certainly blessed you with a gorgeous tea cup and package. She is a dear.
That yellow tea cup is quite stunning!
There is such a love that the ladies pour out in these exchanges, I can't help but stand amazed at all the joy spread across the globe.

Many blessings to you, Debbie
