Recently Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose had her 7th teacup exchange, and oh how I was spoiled by Celestina Marie from Southern DayDreams!!!! The package arrived on my doorstep and I could hardly wait to open it!! Come and see all the lovely gifts that were packed inside...
Look at this gorgeous hand painted hat box that Celeste painted especially for me! I am truly honored. Look at all the pretty detail .
The trim around the lid is just exquisite! Look at the beautiful rose, the checkerboard, and the darling dots.
This rose is inside the hat box, at the bottom. I was overwhelmed by all the beauty, time, and talent that went into this work of art.
And then...this teacup that matches the design on the hatbox!! Can you believe it??!! Celeste even sent a pretty spoon for my tea. How did she know that I have been wanting a teacup with some black in it? It's so elegant and all my favorite colors, too!
Celeste also made this darling pumpkin. Isn't it the sweetest with the lace, roses, and cute tendrils and top? The pumpkin is going in my bedroom, as it fits right in.
If you'll please excuse me, I'm going to enjoy a cup of Breakfast in Paris tea in bed, some chocolate covered cherries, and read my Cup of Friendship book, all while enjoying my cherry scented candle. Thank you Celeste from the bottom of my heart! Celeste is a fellow Texan and we hope to be able to meet one day. Thank you, also, to Stephanie, who organizes this lovely teacup exchange. Without her, none of these friendships would happen.
Linda was my recipient for the gift exchange, and in my excitement to mail my gifts to Linda, I had forgotten to take a picture. I copied a picture that Linda put on her My Sew What Blog. The thrill of giving gifts to your recipient is such a joy and I thank Stephanie for providing that for us.
As an expression of her gratitude, Linda sent the sweetest note and some homemade soap. The soap is such a pretty color and it makes my skin feel so great. Thank you, Linda!
