The Enchanting Rose Tea Cup Exchange 2016

It's that wonderful time again where the reveal for Stephanie's The Enchanting Rose's Tea Cup and Mug Exchange is shown around the world.  I am in awe of Stephanie's organisational skills and patience with this exchange and so happy to show off the two parcels I received.

The first is from Kimberley at Creative Chaos over in New Zealand.

The beautiful porcelain mug is from the Kensington Palace Collection "Palace Rose".  I love the design and it's lovely summery colours.  Along with the mug I received three practical and beautifully shaded blue tea towels.  The duck egg blue one will be used for photo backdrops.  Gorgeous.

Also Kimberley sent over some lovely chocolate, always a winner with me!

Just yummy!

Thank you so much Kimberley for such a wonderful and delicious parcel.  The tea is gorgeous too!

So, that was the mug exchange, now to the tea cup exchange...

My second parcel is from the lovely Angela over at Garden Teacakes and Me.

I was so happy to receive this gorgeous pastel coloured tea cup and saucer with the added surprise of a matching side plate.  The colours of pink, green and white are my favourite colour combination.

I can't wait for the warmer days when I can sit properly at my garden table with a sandwich and lovely refreshing tea looking at this wonderful trio.

The selection of teas are currently being enjoyed.  I do love a selection, thank you Angela.

Angela seemed to know my love (and maybe obsession) with note books, so I was absolutely thrilled to add another one to the collection, along with a pencil from Liberty - so happy!

Thanks so much Angela, I can see I will be using all of the elements to your parcel on lovely sunny days in the garden.

Go along and visit Stephanie's blog to see more parcels that have been sent and received on this very happy exchange.

I've heard that my two parcels have been received and looking forward to reading about them from Andrea at My Everything Corner and Barbara at Small Moments

Thank you once again Stephanie, you are so incredibly brilliant at organising this so well.

  15. Hello Chel~~Both your mug and tea cup are just beautiful, so pretty and feminine. Those tea towels are a fun and soothing color for the spring time.
    How interesting to see the different chocolates.
    Enjoy your treasures~~

  16. Hi Chel,
    The mug and tea cup that you received are both so pretty! I often wish I participated in both too but I have so little space to store mugs. So I have been doing just the tea cup swap to build a collection of mismatched tea cups! You received quite a lot of lovely items and goodies. Hoping it warms up for you so you can enjoy sipping some tea outdoors!
    Take care,

  17. The mug and trio set that you received are both beautiful! You also received some interesting new teas to try out!

  18. What a lovely exchange indeed!
    Thank you for sharing~

  19. My darling friend, both of your packages are exquisite! And I just love the soft colors on the mug and tea cup...so pretty and feminine :)

    I am ever so glad you joined the exchange one again for it's sweet people like you that make this exchange possible and enjoyable. Have a delightful day, dear one! Much love to you!

  20. Wonderful gifts, all of them! I am using the wonderful tea cup as I sit here and write. I really have fallen in love with it. Thank-you again, (for having exquisite taste).

  21. You received such pretty tea cup, mug and goodies! I hope you enjoy everything.

  22. What a lovely idea for an exchange and you received some very thoughtful gifts. I'm particularly taken with the chocolate! x

  23. What a lovely swap! Gorgeous gifts sent and received :-). xx

  24. What a lot of lovely goodies! Such sweet parcels.

  25. so happy you love what I sent. It can be hard finding nice mugs here. Whitakers chocolate is very big here - Cadbury does not have a shoe in!

  26. I adore the mug the your received, so delicate and pretty - and I would soon be tucking into that bar of chocolate too.

    So pleased you liked the cup and saucer.
