Oh my gosh, I just noticed that tea bag stamp in there. How cool is that! I'm about to post pictures unless my sister arrives for dinner before I can!

Here is my fab package from my partner, teaspoons and tiaras. (Good name for this swap!).

First up, a hand-lettered cup & saucer.


The cup says "tea leaves, tea loves, loves tea, lives tea, leaves tea? Never!" and the saucer says "Nothing better than a nice cup of tea and a sit down.. unless you can also have biscuits, and biscuits and sitting down... that's the ticket!" Lol. Cute!

And a mini-hoopla


... with a colourful back


And then there's TWO necklaces (showing with the cool Phrenology card she sent, since I'm a phrenology fan)


And the teas themselves! SO Many, I think she went overboard (though note that we decided to do 5 points instead of 3!), but I am so excited by them.

There's a classic green, the most popular black tea blend in Belfast, a... Belgian? Earl Grey, and Twining's Christmas tea (don't worry that they are in bags, I make exceptions to my looseleaf plans for special teas -and this smells great!)

Thanks so much teaspoons & tiaras, it's been very fun swapping with you!

Unfortunately, one of my partners flaked but fortunately, blupaisan stepped in and offered to angel for me.  I received on Saturday but I have been a little under the weather so sorry for not posting pics sooner.  Here is the loot:



There is a very cute stitched cat card and a pretty tree canister.  There is a lovely black cuff bracelet & I'd like to know how she made that, since my hands are usually too big to get through regular bangles (it is not too loose btw blupaisan).  She also sent a lovely vintage tea party print from a children's book.  And last but definitely not least, she sent a vintage teacup.  I have a teacup collection so this was very thoughtful.  There is a very cute pair of teacup earrings from her Etsy shop.   The tree canister is full of a variety of wonderful tea (and thank you for all the decaf).



Thank you so much blupaisan - it was all lovely!
