The Teacup Exchange Reveal...Beautiful boxes and Ballerinas...

What anticipation when a box as gorgeous as this arrives....Butterflies, Bows and...

...Ballerinas! Someone has done their research!

Lace and Dance slogans yet...oh my gosh...this person knows me better than I know myself!

Ballet pink hearts, roses and pearls, and my favourite tea...

...with lots of tulle!
And of course the teacup...all prettiness and flowers and ballet pink trim...

What's prettier? The cup or the saucer?

Now taking pride of place in my collection of ballerina themed teacups.

Thankyou Kim of Sarah Lizzies Handmade for your beautiful thoughtful gift.
And kisses to Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose  for connecting me with two new sender and my receiver. You are a Darling. Stephanie had over 150 ladies participate in her most recent Teacup and Mug Exchange. What a mammoth task, and what a beautiful result for all of us.
I sent to Shane at Roses Lace Brocante and was so eager to get my parcel in the post, that I completely forgot to photograph it! You'll have to pop over to Shanes beautiful blog to see what I sent her. I am hoping she loved it as much as I loved putting it together.
Thankyou Stephanie! I think you must be an angel in disguise!


  1. Oh Mimi, Kim did indeed do her homework {{smiles}} The heart is oh-so-romantic and took my breath away. And the tea cup.....gorgeous! I am so glad you joined the exchange sweet friend. I look forward to having you link your post up to tomorrow's reveal.

    Much love to you!

  2. What a lovely gift, Mimi. Just up your alley of course ;-)

  3. Good Morning Mimi, How wonderful, to receive a gift which is perfectly tailored to your style. Kim has really 'done you proud' as we say here in England. The design on the tea cup of pink roses and blue daisies is just perfect.
    When you have the time, make yourself a nice cup of tea, sit down in your favourite chair, put your feet up and enjoy this wonderful gift.
    Best Wishes
