Fluxity- That tea cup is awesome! I don't know if I'd be able to pull that off!


And, my partner PM'd me today that she sent, so hopefully I have pictures to post soon!  Cheesy

I was really excited that I found them, and I might just have to go and buy some for myself, or make them... hmmm... Starbucks lets us have a free pound of coffee per week... anyone up for some Tanzania chocolate covered beans??

Pound of coffee?!?!?! Wow. mmmmm home made chocolate coffee beans.....

My company is moving to a new office from monday and we get subsidized Starbucks within the building! Woo! Half price coffee!!

My package arrived from crescentfresh today!



There is a domino pendant with a coffee bean on it, a tea box filled with yummy sounding teas and decoupaged with tea bag envelopes, a poetry journal with a coffee poem in it and a bag in my favorite shade of green!

Thanks crescentfresh!

I had to do the same for the tea cups that I etched. It took a while to cut out the characters, but the end result was worth it. It's funny because I had the tea cups but never used them (very similar to yours), and once I etched them, I almost couldn't give them away!

Finally, pictures!!!! 

I have a lot, so stay focused here!

First everything all together: (except for the collage)


This is the fantastic collage that Fluxity made for me!  It's going to go in my room with all of the art that I collect.


This is the canister filled with teas!  I love the mango one, and the snapple strawberry makes such a perfect iced tea!


These are teas that Fluxity found at a local tea shop near her.  I'm so glad I got you to go in there!  The teas smell wonderful!  And I'm going to make a cup for myself tonight.


These soaps smell so good!!


This is the mini tea set she sent me!


It's perfect size for my new doll!


This is some of the wonderful stationary she sent me.  It's perfect for all of my birthday thank-yous!


And these tiny cards that I'm sending to some special friends =D


She also sent me this great book with tons of quotes and little things to say in letters, like apologies, and thank yous.  It's so perfect!!!


Finally, the wonderful cup!!!



I also have some close up shots of the mini cards and a few more of the tea set in my flickr: http://flickr.com/photos/honeyd/sets/72157600375663556/with/558097591/

Thank you so much Fluxity!  I love absolutely everything!  You have been a wonderful swap partner!

That collage is fantastic. And the cards so pretty.

Love the miniature tea set though. Your doll is so lucky.

After much waiting and going to prod the postmen twice to see if they were hiding my parcel, I arrived home yesterday to a note saying they had tried to deliver one.
Cue me trying really hard not to get too excited and then sending the DB out at 7am to fetch it for me (it is only 2 mins walk at most to the post sorting office)
Enough talk! On with the goodies!
I opened the extras first. Included were coffee treats for the DB to enjoy (a lovely thank you for fetching my parcel for me), tea for me  Cheesy and GRITS  Grin which I asked specifically for as I had always wanted to try them ever since I saw My Cousin Vinnie as a child. I will be having one of them for breakfast.

Next up a lovely tea tray that is perfect for all my little Chinese teapots. With this but I forgot to take a photo are some beautiful napkins. I love the colour. I know you said it was a mistake kitschkween, but you must have known I love to use napkins at dinner. I have some napkin rings that will be great with them.


A tea bag folding kit. I'll be able to learn what to do with all the teabag papers I have been saving. hurrah!


And the best bit of all. A relax kit. I am starting work at my conference today and a relax kit is exactly what I will need after a long day of helping conference goers.

Handmade soap (which I will have to hide from DB as it made his eyes water poor guy, I will add it to the rest of the anti-DB soaps I own hehe),White chocolate, yum, a bookmark with my favourite song on it, a CD and (not in photo) chamomile tea.
Also last but definitely not least! Some cute Mary Jane slippers which will keep my feet warm and snuggly in the staff flat at night  Grin


Thank you so much Kitschkween!
And thank you Phantomsiren for organising.
Thanks both of you for worrying about my parcel too, even if it did turn up in the end.
