Today I'm sharing the gifts I received and sent out for The Enchanting Rose teacup exchange. Stephanie hosts this lovely event twice a year, and it is always a joy to participate. She does such an amazing job of arranging it all, for which I am so thankful! :)
I was absolutely thrilled when I got the mail one day and found a package from Emily! She blogs over at Emily's Vintage Visions, and has such great vintage (and historical) style. It was so exciting to get a package from her!!
She sent this gorgeous Franciscan Desert Rose tea cup. I have admired this pattern for a long time, but did not have any in my collection. I really hadn't realized how beautiful it was until now; I just love it!! :) It's also so neat how every tea cup I own has a rose pattern. Too fun!!! :D
Along with the tea cup she sent a couple of gorgeous vintage hankies, one with a rose pattern (yay!!), and another with a white-on-white floral and scalloped edges. I just love them both!
She also included this stunning brooch, which I am dying to wear!
Thank you so, so much for the lovely gifts, Emily!!! I enjoyed each and every one of them. :)
I sent my package to the lovely Delvalina, who blogs over at Falling in Love with Jesus.
It was so fun how the things I sent tended to be in the same color scheme, without me even planning it! I love this color of blue, and I'm so glad Delvalina did as well. I included two skeins of Downton Abbey yarn, as well as a cute little notepad.
The tea cup is from an antique shop. The floral pattern caught my eye right away, and I had to get it. I can't remember the name, but I know it was an English company.
Do check out Delvalina's blog, if you haven't already done so; she makes the loveliest crafts, including really gorgeous cards! The one she sent for a thank you was just stunning.
And a big shoutout to Stephanie for hosting the exchange once again!! Thank you so much, dear lady!! :)
