Now this is a tea party!!

If you don't know Stephanie by now perhaps it is time you should!  Check out her blog
The Enchanting Rose and  take a leisurely tour.  She also has the most delightful Etsy Shop.  I should know, I am one of her customers.

Stephanie is the hostess of The Tea Cup Exchange held twice a year.  This is my very first year and I am already looking forward to the next party!  There were 192 participants this year from all over the world.  My partner was a very sweet lady in California.  Her name is Nora and you can find her at Tales of the Teacup.  This is the gift I sent her.

A homemade card is always fun to make and receive.

Lynn in Indiana had my name and boy is she some kind of artist!!  I can't believe she wrapped all of the gifts!!!

I could not get all of  Lynn's gifts in one picture!!  A lovely tea cup with matching tea pot.  Also a water color journal which  I can try my best to fill!
Next  tea and a delightful letter from Lynn.  She sent me a set of Our Gang coasters - what fun.  On my last post for Art Journal Journey my theme was Our Gang.
Now for Lynn's art work and it indeed is a work of art.  Hand painted and designed by Lynn on fabric with a lace trim.  A tapestry extraordinaire!  It took my breath away!!!   You can find Lynne at Quaker Home Cottage.

I know this is a long post but believe me it is well worth the journey.  The fun for me - searching for goodies that will go perfectly in my next gift box.  And then the mad search to find something special just for that person!!
