Enchanting Rose Teacup Exchange (2016)

Last fall I participated in a teacup exchange, and I loved it so much I joined again this year! It's hosted by Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose and she is so kind and thoughtful in the way she runs everything.  There are many participants, but she still manages to match us up with other ladies who often share similarities to us in age or interests, which makes finding out who sent your package that much more exciting (as well as finding out who you are sending to!)


This year I received a package from Ashleigh, and I was so excited and blessed by her generosity.  As soon as I opened the package I could smell the beautiful rose soap.  All of the wrapping paper and cards were scented so lovely.  As you can see, the teacup is gorgeous and just as vintage and classy as I love, and look at that detailed blue rose design!  She sent some of my favorite fruit teas and wonderful chocolate treats (that I must admit are gone by now...) Also papers and stickers and a lovely book for baking, complete with recipes specifically for tea parties and full color pictures.


Ashleigh also creates things, and sent a variety of handmade gifts made specifically for me. The stunning dress bookmark is already in use, and you must look at the bunny pin! SO adorable! It's my favorite shade of blue, complete with pearls and fluffy tail.
Thank you so much Ashleigh for everything, I loved it all so much. I can't wait to keep in touch! (Your official thank-you note will be in the mail shortly :) )

  16. What a pretty Tea Cup! - You got a great package. Isn't this the most fun. Now I found your blog through this event & just became a Follower. If you wouldn't mind could you add the Follow By E-Mail feature to your blog. It's easier to get updates when you post for me at least.

  17. What an array of beauty you have been blessed with, Skyeler.
    That tea cup has such a dainty look to it and a pretty color of blue.
    I was reading your profile and I see you love rabbits, we too enjoy them as pets in the home. They are quite easy to house break too. We are on our third rabbit as our pet, his name is Lakota.

    So nice to meet you through my dear daughters exchange. I am happily following you now.

    Have a beautiful day~~

    1. I truly was! It was so kind of her to send so much, and to choose it all so carefully. :)
      How exciting! I do love rabbits very much - I only have one at the moment (he was a stray in need of a home) but would love to have more someday! I have found the house breaking (mostly) easy as well. Good luck with your third bunny friend!

      It is a pleasure to "meet" you! :D You as well. <3
