The Enchanting Rose's 11th Teacup Exchange

 I can hardly believe that I have been participating 11 times in Stephanie's exchange, from The Enchanting Rose.   I was the lucky recipient from Doniene, who has two blogs,  Doniene's 365 Days-2017 and Now It's Just Quilts!  I was excited like a little kid on Christmas morning when my package arrived on my doorstep!

 I received these darling note pads.  I'm forever needing these.  Aren't you? 


 I love cookbooks and read them like novels, from cover to cover.  I have found so many teatime treats that I'd like to make from this Afternoon Tea Book.


 Doniene made me this beautiful apron and quilted a matching potholder.  Isn't that so special?

 I received not one, but two teacups!  I have always wanted a Fire King peach luster teacup, on the right!  I'll bet that Doniene sent the demitasse cup of the left for one of my granddaughter's to use, don't you?

 Doniene made the sweet bird that's peeking into the box of tea that she sent...so many flavors for me to choose from!


Thank you, Doniene, for all your thoughtful, and most appreciated gifts!  You certainly spoiled me and made me feel special.  I donned my Favorite Tea Shirt, that my dear daughter gave me, to enjoy a cup of tea!  I gifted Laura, from Decor to Adore as my teacup partner, and you can see what I sent to her here.   I've had the pleasure of meeting sweet Laura, and she is just a delight!  Thank you to dear, sweet  Stephanie, our hostess,  who puts so much time, effort and love in these exchanges.  Please visit The Enchanting Rose on November 8th to see all the participants.  

Laura sent me this beautiful handmade, pop up card as a thank you.  Wasn't that thoughtful of her?  We all love to feel appreciated, don't we?

 

I am sharing with these lovely parties:
