That is super weird... I totally filled out a customs form and made sure to include every item I sent on said form. It hasn't shown back up here yet. I'll try and talk to my post office about this tomorrow.

Indeed. My fingers are still crossed!

*crosses fingers* I'm hopeful still dang it! But if need be, I will totally remake stuff. I did take pictures before I sent everything out. But live in the hope!

Wow! That teapot is really cute! I love the idea of the magnets too. I wish I had thought of something like that.

Well, I got my wonderful package last Friday, but continuing my personal theme of computer issues for this swap, Im only now able to post the awesome pictures. (This was followed by a week of being knocked out by muscle relaxers to deal with knots between my shoulder blades. All better now though!) So, I feel very spoiled since I got two full-size tea packages and one smaller package!
These first two teas were rather tasty! Chai is my favorite kind of tea, but I found that the Yunnan has an earthy quality Ive fallen in love with!



Now, this next tea was a special surprise, as it was the first tea she ever tried, and she wanted to share that with me. Im glad she did because it was wonderful!! I liked how the fruity components of Cranberry and Cherries blended smoothly with the natural creaminess of the tea. I can see how this could turn a person into a tea lover.



Next, I got these lovely coasters!


Now, being a little bit of an anglophile, I know about Tea Time in Britain, but I had never heard about Fika. Let me tell you, I now think Fika should totally be a thing here in the US! This is when you and a friend at work take a break for a cup of tea and a little treat like a cookie! If that doesnt sound heavenly, then I dont think I know what qualifies as heavenly. ;-)

Also, she used a beautiful silver thread to do a partial quote from Dr. Who. For those who are not as geeky, shes referencing the following quote: Tea! That's all I needed! A good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses.

I think we can all agree with the good Doctor on that one!

To wrap it all up, I received this wonderful notecard!


I absolutely love it! Im usually not a fan of floral things done randomly, yet the way those flowers are worked to represent the sky over Stockholm is just beautiful. Honestly, Im tempted to frame it and hang it on the wall!

I really cant say enough about how wonderful everything is and was, but I can say Annchen did an amazing job as a partner!

I think I'm jealous of that bookmark! Not that I could use it, my cats would love it just a little too much. Still, it's super cute. Those flour sack tea bags are giving me ideas though. I may have to experiment a bit!

I too love Earl Grey, and I'd be in heaven sampling all of those options! That wreath though is something else! Super cool!

That towel is beautiful! I love the shades of green and purple she picked.

Those teas sound delicious too!

Ugh... From getting the send out date mixed up in my head to sleeping through almost the entire day Monday, getting this package sent out has been a challenge. But it is now in the mail! Yay! Also, I have real internet again!!!

All in all, I loved the whole process and can't wait to see what awesome item's we've all created!

I have gotten my tea from an excellent local store. Luckily my partner a and I seem to have similar tastes, so I'm really hoping she loves this as much as I did!

I've also gotten my supplies to begin making my items.

Sadly, I'll only have internet on my cell phone for the next few days. Our internet is out and we have to wait until a technician can come fix the issues.
