Tea from a friend

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose has hosted another fun teacup and mug exchange. She is having the official reveal on her blog on Thursday (10.23), but graciously allowed us to post our teacups anytime prior to Thursday. I couldn't wait to show you the beautiful package I received from Kitty at Kitty's Kozy Kitchen

Wow . . . I was overwhelmed when I opened the package . . .


Look at this beauty. So many gorgeous colors.


She made this darling crocheted pumpkin for me. I couldn't believe it! Isn't it just too cute? I saw one on her blog recently and told her I'd love to have tea with her and have her show me how to make one, and . . . she sent it to me!


These all smell delicious, especially the coconut chai. I am drinking the gypsy rose.


These little shortbread guys are delicious. I think they would also taste great dipped in chocolate. Don't you think they'd like to wear some brown trousers?



I had a lovely tea time today, feeling blessed by my blogger friend.

My package for Stephanie's exchange is winging its way from here in Michigan to New South Wales in Australia! I do hope it gets there before Thursday. I'm kind of afraid it may be a while yet.

*****

In beauty news, look what my daughter scored from Sephora. A 500-point bonus gift.


The darling little lip gloss is only two inches high.


Mmm . . . Dutch apple pie for later.


Thank you, again, dear Kitty, for the fabulous package.

And don't forget to stop by sweet Stephanie's on Thursday.

  35. Good morning Deborah

    I'm having a lovely morning visiting everyone involved in Stephanie's Tea Cup Exchange.
    Kitty really spoiled you!
    The floral cup and saucer she chose is exquisite and so feminine - I just adore those colours!
    The knitted pumpkin is so cute - wonderful to use as part of your autumn arrangements - she is so clever with the things she makes.
    Those little shortbread men look so sweet it's a shame to eat them!
    And I've never seen teas packed in that way - we don't have them here, they sound delicious!
    You must be very happy with your parcel Deb!!!

    Have a happy weekend
    hugs
    Shane
