What about a swap inspired by the great invention of Afternoon Tea?

You know; teapots, pretty china, cup cakes, strawberries with cream, scones, jam, embroidered table clothes and napkins, cake stands, red and pink roses, paper doilies, sugar bowls, milk jugs, frilly aprons... well you get the picture!

I would love to participate in this if it happens some time in the summer as well, so I'll keep an eye on this thread. Smiley  My secret dream is to have a teahouse someday, so I spend a lot of time thinking about this subject.

I am a tea fanatic! A Summer time tea-time swap would be awesome.

That would suit me better too, we're in the process of moving house so it's all a bit  Shocked messy at the moment! What about June / July?

I was thinking maybe 2 medium objects or 1 large + 1 small, so it doesn't get too intimidating - does that sound good?

Also, I've never organised a swap before - I'd like to give it a try, but would anybody more experienced be interested in co-organising with me perhaps?

I'm in IF it's a summer swap. The earliest I can add another swap to my plate is June.

I was just sitting here asking myself "How can I drink more water, when all I want to do is sip hot tea all day??""

And I just found the greatest tea company! They take all sorts of tea and add spices to make them chai! So there is Green Tea Chai, among others. I could drink it by the gallon!

Personally I'm going to be quite busy the last 2 weeks of June & through July 4th- parents 40th anniversary this year Smiley but if sign ups are then with crafting time after I can do it. I have to leave room for running round 2 of the Hand Carved Rubber Stamp Swap too Smiley
