As a blogger I sometimes link up with other bloggers, sharing recipes joining in with monthly crafting linkys. It is a way of sharing a recipe or crafty make with fellow bloggers and discovering their creations too. Through a blog link I discovered a gifting linky called the Tea Cup and Mug Exchange, created and organised by the lovely Stephanie who blogs at The Enchanting Rose.
|Tea Cup and Mug Exchange Gifts|
I received mine this week, a little later than most people as there was a slight mix up with my exchange. It was being shipped from Canada from Gillian at Gigi Photography.
|Wonderful handmade gifts|
It was a delight to discover five wonderful gifts all specially selected for me.
- Pretty china cup and saucer
- DIY Mason Jar Creative Crafts book - one of the idea to create a glitter dome from a Mason Jar has caught my eye.
- Handmade lotion bar, which smells delightful.
- Handmade Rose hip tea blend and Rose Petal Bath Tea bag, your literally brew yourself a bath how fun is that.
- Delicate cotton and lace handkerchief
I can not wait to try some of the craft suggests in the DIY Mason Jar book, as I have a number of these jars in the cupboard. I can be crafting whilst enjoying a cuppa in my new teacup and saucer.
I sent my teacup and saucer which you can see above, along with a selection of teas, a Shropshire notebook, Liberty pencil and a chocolate treat to the wonderful Sweet Briar Dreams. Do pop over and have a look, Chel has captured the gift in some beautiful photographs. I could barely part with the tea cup and saucer, for it was so delightful. I did manage to take a photograph prior to gift wrapping. I have also discover a new blog to follow too.
If you want to see the wonderful selection of Teacup, Mugs and gifts exchanged by everyone see the Teacup Exchange round up post, on the Enchanting Rose. I have to say a huge thank you to Stephanie for organising it all, with so many people it surely took a much of her time.
The next Teacup and Mug Exchange takes place later this year, you can find out more information at The Enchanting Rose. You do not have to be a blogger to join in.
I am joining in with Five on Friday, hosted by Amy at Love Made My Home.
