Teacup Trade ~ The Gift I Sent

Sharon at Faith, Hope and Cherrytea sponsored a Valentine TeaCup Trade

This is the teacup and gifts I sent to my swap partner, Marilyn P.
Marilyn doesn't have a blog, therefore,  I am posting the gift here. 

I chose this beautiful floral Stratford English bone china teacup from my collection to send to Marilyn. 

In addition, I sent a tea towel, an assortment of Harney and Sons individually wrapped tea sachets,
a tea kettle kitchen timer, a porcelain teapot trinket box,
a teapot shaped measuring tape,
and a Woman of God tea-themed book of devotionals. 

I sent these gifts nestled in red tissue paper, trimmed with heart decorated ribbon. 

Thank you Sharon at Faith, Hope, and Cherrytea for coordinating this special Valentine TeaCup Trade!

Note from Linda:  I forgot to take photos of the gift items before sending them to Marilyn.  The tea towel was a little different from the one in the photo above.

Gosh you sent so many gifts as well as the TC&S, such generosity. I am going to be embarrassed. I sent a few things but never having done a swap like this I didn't realize people sent so many extras!

Love Dawn xx

Where in the world do you find all of these great Teacups at? Do I need to make a trip up to Kentucky to shop for Teacups??
It will surely serve as a wonderful "Memory" of you for this lady!

I've had a problem with the links for the teacup trade but am finally getting around to visit more of them.
You sent a beautiful teacup to your partner and some sweet tea related goodies.
