A Beau-TEA-ful Box of Goodies

Hello everyone!
Can you believe it's November already?
And it still feels a little like summer here some days...what's up with that, anyway?
But more importantly, it's also time to reveal our teacups and other goodies from

I can't say enough how much I appreciate this girl!
Thank you so much, Stephanie, for everything you do to bring us these fun exchanges.
So...without further ado, let's get on with it!
 I will start out by sharing the package that I sent to my recipient,
none other than delightful Kitty from Kitty's Kozy Kitchen.
What a sweetheart she is!
 I learned that Kitty likes a lot of different colors so the options were many.
I found this pretty blue and white floral pattern teacup and saucer with a dainty little spoon.
The shape was quite different from many teacups I've seen.

I also came across this darling creamer from the Pioneer Woman.
After seeing that one little blue flower, I knew right away that it just had to accompany her teacup!
 Of course I included a variety of yummy teas and some sweet treats as well!

I was so excited when my package arrived from Kelly who blogs at Dreaming of Vintage.
I was not familiar with her blog but soon found out she is one talented lady!
She creates some of the most beautiful cards and paper crafts that I have ever seen!
Unfortunately back in April, Kelly had to take an extended break from blogging
 as a result of her father suffering a stroke.
From what I have learned, he has recovered some but will need ongoing care.
We just never know what each day may bring into our lives, do we?
Kelly hopes to return to her blog soon and get back into some card making as well.
She also looks forward to Stephanie's Tea Cup Exchanges and wants to keep being a part of them.
Thank you once again Kelly for these gifts and sending prayers to you and your family!♥

So it was a box within a box and it was packed to the brim!
Isn't this just the cutest box??

As I dug into my box of goodies, it seemed as though it had no bottom.
Everything was wrapped individually and by the time I was finished unwrapping,
it seemed like Christmas morning had already arrived!

There were oodles of yummy teas, beautiful silver tea accessories, a darling bobble head owl...


...a few darling felt flower bows and floral print ribbons...

...a sweet mini doily, rooster kitchen towels, tea bag holders, yummy cookies...
(that's not all...give me a second to catch my breath here)

...this aDORable little book... 

...and these precious little tea time charms.
Ever since I laid my eyes on them, the wheels have been turning.
Hmm...how shall I put these lovelies to good use?? 

I finally reached the bottom of the box and there it was.

It was gorgeous...beautifully embossed in a harvest pattern with pumpkins and vines.

I've not seen one quite like it.


I was thrilled with this lovely box and all of the wonderful things it contained! 
It was also quite a challenge to get everything in one photo...

...and this is the best I could do.
I wonder how she got it all in there anyway??
Good job, Kelly...

 ...and your generosity has blessed me so much!

    The Lord bless you~~

  14. Where to begin, so many pretties. Those little tea charms are adorable (I wonder what you will do with them?) as is that pretty little tea book. Such a pretty teacup. It must have taken an age to take each wonderful little gift out from the box. Your gifts to Kitty are lovely too.

  30. Oh my, that white tea cup is pretty, and the blue one is too. I haven't participated in Stephanie's tea cup exchange yet, but I love looking at all the goodies that everyone gets. I really like that quote "keep calm and drink tea."

  35. I was admiring Kitty's teacup on her blog, and that little cow creamer is so cute! What an abundance to tea finery you received from Kelly! Maybe the box is bigger than it appears in the photo? Beautiful items, lovely teacup (white on white is always so elegant), and fun extra bits like the charms. I would want to think of something extra special for those as well. You were well blessed with such fun stuff ;)

  36. Debby, how fun! Love the loot, sent and received! Thank you for sharing this lovely experience with us.

  37. Oh, that looks like such fun! I love the teacup you gave. And you sure got some lovely items.

    Great to see your pictures here.

    All the best Jan
