The day following my receiving the parcel from the mug exchange, another package arrived from the teacup side of things. It was like Christmas morning two days in a row! I have so much love for this event. I don't know how to thank Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose enough for taking the time to organize 190 women.
This time, the gifts were from someone I've met before, through Stephanie actually. When Kelly started her blog Homespuns 'n Hayfields this past January, she was introduced via The Enchanting Rose. Kelly has been a delightful visitor to my blog ever since, and I was so excited to see that she had my name.
Once again I was spoiled by generosity and thoughtfulness. First of all, the gifts...
Cookies, teas and coffee. I don't usually buy cookies, but I have to say, I may if I find these on the shelf. They had a light and crispy texture, and not over sweet. Just perfect for a cup of tea or coffee. That pumpkin? - Kelly handmade it herself and it was her very first one. I love it! I think there will be more pumpkins in her future. Along with that was a fall themed set of a potholder and cloth - what gorgeous colors. I journal, and I have several journals for various topics. I foresee this one being devoted to my new garden journal. And yet another homemade gift. What a sweet little face on that snowman angel ornament. This little guy also suits my decor perfectly, and is going to look great on my tree.
And the teacup...sigh. It is so delicate and pretty. The princess inside me rises to the surface when I see this piece.
Thank-you so much Kelly. I will treasure these items for years to come. Except the cookies. They're gone.
