My Favorite New Teacup

My favorite new teacup arrived from new friend Jo from Australia.

Teacup Exchange 010

For the past few years I had seen postings from dear blogging friends about a teacup exchange hosted by the delightful Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose.

This was the first time I joined and it was such fun!

Teacup Exchange 012

You send a package to one person which should include tea and a teacup. You are also welcome to add in sweet little extras. You then also receive a package from another participant so it is like gaining two new friends  at one party.

Joanne Roberts wrapped each lovely item so beautifully it was like the happiest of birthdays and the most magical of Christmases in one pretty package.

Jo herself does not have a blog but she should! When reading her sweet handwritten note I found myself wanting to know more about Jo, her family, and their home in New South Wales.

The teacup pattern Jo chose for me is absolute perfection! It is “Lady Carlyle” by Royal Albert.

I so adore the delicate pink floral design. It was truly a sweet treat!

Thank you so very much Jo for your sweet gift and thank you Stephanie for arranging the exchange.

Do you have a favorite teacup or mug?

Hi Laura, so glad you joined in the exchange this season. It's so much fun and you received a beautiful teacup in your gift package from many miles away. Such a treasure with a delicate rose design. The Rose and French Vanilla tea sounds delicious! Have fun visiting the reveal posts. Wishing you a beautiful rest of the week my friend. xoxo

You and I were both first timers. :)

Oh my gosh- Laura- Lady Carlisle is one of the prettiest of English china there is out there - what lovely treasures you received from Jo.

I sent MY package to New South Wales, Australia, too. Too bad our two gals didn't swap, huh? : - )

What a blessing Stephanie is to so many. She's an angel.

Love your new teacup Laura. Thank you for sharing. I love teacups and anything to do with tea. My new favorite is called Paris by Harney &sons. As I was looking at all the photos I saw so many I would love to try. Enjoy!

So lovely. I don't know that I have a favorite. I enjoy many because of the the designs and shapes. Always interesting. I've had a little difficulty leaving comments lately with the open ID. Hope you are having a lovely week.
