Stephanie's 2016 Autumn Teacup Exchange Reveal


This is the third teacup exchange of Stephanie's that I've participated in and each has been an experience of generosity, thoughtfulness and friendship. Let me share what I received for the autumn exchange.
My parcel arrived from fellow Canadian Marina who lives in Edmonton, Alberta. The card is adorned with sweet violets, the birth flower for February which is when my birthday is.
The box contained pretty packages wrapped in lavender and silver with butterfly stickers.
Two varieties of tea, both of which I drink regularly and love that they were selected for me.
Lavender napkins and a lavender sachet.
An adorable kitchen towel with a baking theme.
There was also Guylian chocolates and thin Belgian chocolate biscuits. Can you see my beautiful teacup with the violets? I've already enjoyed some of my new tea in it a number of times along with the biscuits which were delicious.
A heart collage showing how much I appreciate the teas and teacup selected for me.
“The daintiness and yet elegance of a china teacup
 focuses one to be gentle, to think warmly, and to feel close.”
~Carol and Malcolm Cohen~
Thank you Marina for the box of love you sent me.
My box of love was sent to Lynda Ruth Bowers in New Brunswick, Canada and I did a bit of a Christmas theme with her teacup.
I am linking with Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose where all the other ladies will be revealing what they received in their parcels. Thank you so much Stephanie for hosting!
As always, take time for tea

  2. It was enough to see the first two photos and I was totally in love with the gifts you received. They are so much YOU. :) So beautiful, so delicious.
    We have the same lavender napkins... it was interesting to see that they are sold in Canada as well.
    The gifts you sent look lovely too. With Villeroy & Boch and a tartan theme you can't go wrong. :)
    Have a lovely day! xx

  4. I can't help but grin from ear-to-ear, dear Judith. The lovely Marina went the extra mile to make your package perfect for you. The wrapping looks like your beautiful blog and the lavender color is so very you.

    The package you sent is just as delightful and I love the Christmas theme - what fun!

    Thank you, sweet friend, for once again joining the fun. Have a most blessed day. {{{hugs}}}

  8. Such pretty gifts you received and obviously picked by someone who knows you--even if through blogging. Amazing isn't it? I think I know these things about you too. And I really like the teacup you sent away. It's so unique. Looks like a Christmas tree skirt to me, or a teacup with a 50s flared (circle) skirt!

  10. I love both the teacup you received and the one you sent. The pansies are so cheerful, and the ruffle on the edge of the Christmas saucer is so pretty and unique. I just think those Walker Scottie dogs are the cutest!
    Well, we will all be set to enjoy lots of lovely tea, and enjoy it via bogland together. It's fun to enjoy this party together, and to remember past parties. I'm still enjoying the pretty cup you sent me. Love, Deborah

  29. Such a lovely package of gifts and a very nice tradition. The lavender motifs suit you perfectly. Thank you all of the tips that you have shared. I live the peppermint tea to determine for the house. We have been so lucky not to have them in house. And thank you for the spiritual phrases. I am sharing that with my dear friend who is scrapbooking a gratitude book and she love what you sent me. Enjoy your weekend.

  32. Judith, the teacup exchange looks like such fun, but I've never quite managed to get in on it. Your new cup and saucer is lovely. I love that you blog just once a week like I do. I can only just manage posting once a week and visiting others once a week.

  35. Oh, what a gorgeous package of lavendar love you received, Judith! How thrilling it must have been to open your parcel and behold each sweet gift... And your pansy teacup is beyond beautiful...ever so dainty and lovely! You sent a very thoughtful Christmassy parcel to Lynda and I am sure she was ever so touched!
    What a wonderful occasion Stephanie's exchange is...
    Have a happy weekend!

  36. Oh my goodness, Judith, what a wonderful package you were gifted with! That teacup is just beautiful!! My mom would love that, as pansies are one of her favorite flowers. :) I've planted some pansies on our porch (here in N.C. they live throughout the winter to bloom in the spring). However, the obnoxious squirrels won't leave mine alone, so they probably won't survive. Grrrr.

    Anyway, I love all your goodies, and I also love the things you sent to your friend. Is that teacup and saucer a Villeroy and Boch pattern? I feel like I've seen it in the stores. At any rate, it's just lovely!!

    Thanks for sharing with us and have a good weekend.

    Hugs,
