In the spring, a teacup lover's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of The Enchanting Rose's Teacup Exchange.
A massive THANK YOU goes out to our wonderful hostess, Stephanie, for all the time and effort that she spent organizing the 10th exchange which has expanded to over 200 participants from around the world!
I was paired up with Jacqueline from New York.
Since Jacqueline doesn't have a blog, I'm sharing what I sent her here.
Jacqueline is interested in the Victorian era so I sent her a Victorian-themed package.
I received the vintage-style kitchen linens on my last birthday and managed to find the same ones to give to Jacqueline.
I sent Jacqueline a teacup from my own collection.
After much contemplation, I selected this teacup decorated with yellow roses. During the Victorian era, flowers were used to relay secret messages. Back in the Victorian times, yellow roses stood for jealousy. Today, yellow roses symbolize friendship.
"I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." (From Casablanca).
I was beyond thrilled to receive this wonderful package from Barbara in Texas.
I was humbled and touched by Barbara's thoughtfulness and generosity. She even handcrafted items that were tailored to my
obsession interests (TEA!) and favourite colours (purple, yellow, and turquoise).
Tasty goodies to accompany my cups of tea.
Vintage napkins embroidered by Barbara.
How sweet are the tea-themed designs?
Barbara confessed that she had difficulty parting with this pretty Hammersley teacup decorated with sweet peas (we've all been there, right?!?). Lucky for me, she overcame her internal struggle and sent this beauty my way!
Thank you for the gorgeous teacup and wonderful goodies, Barbara!
