Tea Cup Exchange with NEW Friends

A little while back I found a blog about tea and other items of Friendship.
Please visit Stephanie at the link above.

If we chose to be apart of this exchange, we were to send a tea cup to the person who's
name we were given and send some others items that a tea lover would enjoy.
We had to send the tea cup out within a week, I can't make anything in a week to send with
the tea cup, I will have to post what I am sending her when I am done, I just went today to find the
fabric to make it, while I'm still working on a grandchild quilt and a few other things,
you should see my list of  WIP's, I'm working on.
I sent my tea cup without taking a picture of it first, (when will I ever remember to take pictures of everything, no matter what I doing with it).
But, I did send the history of my tea cup with it, where it came from and why it was
used, where it was used and for what reason.
My new friend is not far from where I live in south Florida, she lives in Miami.  I have not heard back from her yet.  

Here is my tea cup, I received from my new friend in Anchorage, AK

Thank You Dolores
I love and collect tea cups with roses and love Lavender.
I can't wait till I sit down and enjoy a cup of tea from your cup.
May I add, I have never used tea that was not in a bag, so I will now have to learn how to
use a  diffuser.  I have wanted to and now I have no reason not to.

Also, Dolores wrote a sweet note with her package at the end she wrote,
Numbers 6:24-26
It reads:
"The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you.
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance (favor) upon you,
And give you peace.

Till next I see you, remember the verse


  1. Your tea cup is just lovely, and all those beautiful love gifts for you to enjoy as well, Rosemary.
    I too joined my daughters exchange and just received my lovely package a couple of days ago, all the way from Italy! I am looking forward to posting my precious gifts.
    Sweet blessings to you.
    Joy! Debbie

    1. All the way from Italy, wow! Can't wait to see pictures of all the lovely gifts and new friendships formed. So, Stephanie is your daughter? How sweet to know you both.

  2. Hi RoseMary,

    Oh what delightful items from Dolores! The tea cup is very pretty - although it has roses on it so of course I would think it's lovely :) I'm so glad you joined the exchange and I look forward to having you link-up on my blog next week.

    Hugs and blessings to you!

    1. Hey, Stephanie
      I collect tea cups with Roses, so this was just my cup of tea! LOL
      I look forward to seeing all the delightful gifts.

  3. Hi Rosemary, thank you for the birthday wishes. Your teacup is gorgeous. LOVE the lavender tones.
    Much love!

  4. What a great swap idea - very very lovely! My grandma had a huge collection of teacups, so I think I must have gotten my "tea" gene from her.

  5. Lovely teacup. You will enjoy using loose tea; it really does taste better!

  6. Such a beautiful tea cup! And sweet goodies to go with it. Love the lavender sachet :0)

    My daughter tells me that once you start diffusing your own tea, you won't want it any other way. I hope you enjoy the experience!

  7. You tea cup and goodies are so nice. I hope you enjoy everything!

  8. Hi Rosemary, So nice to meet you and your teacup gift is beautiful along with the special goodies added in. So sorry to read your gift to Miami was lost in the mail. Hopefully it will still arrive and turn up soon.

    So enjoyed my visit to your blog.

  9. Oh I love the lavender colors of your Tea Cup that you received. Very nice. This is my first exchange and so fun to visit and see all the different items that each person sent. :)

  10. Wnat a beautiful teacup and lovely package you received. So sorry your package was lost in the mail. Praying it makes its way to its destination soon! Blessings, Sandr

  11. Hello Rosemary

    What a divine cup you received from Dolores - you must be "over the moon" I know I would be!
    The extras she included in her parcel are gorgeous too.
    Those chocolate twirls are one of my favourite biscuits to enjoy with tea and coffee!
    Love the little lavender bag she included and the lavender body lotion - how thoughtful of Dolores!

    It's so nice to meet you as part of this swap.

    Wishing you a very happy weekend - sipping tea!
