Faith Hope & Cherrytea Tea Cup Swap













I joined Sharon's Faith Hope & Cherrytea Tea Cup Swap and my partner was Liz Lichenstein, it was wonderful to met the lovely Liz. This is the beautiful tea cup that she sent me, I love it, I love how unique the saucer is, I have never seen one like this. The tea cup is made in Germany. I have to say that her package was wrapped so beautifully, it was like Christmas all over again and it was such a treat. Look at all the beautiful things she sent to me, she made this beautiful lace pocket, which has the most beautiful lace on it. She also made me this beautiful mosiac box, it is so pretty, she sent me lace napkins, teacup note cards and a vintage book about entertaining, which I can't wait to read. She also gave me two of the most beautiful tea strainers that I have ever seen. She also sent me this beautiful strawberry pin cushion and beautiful pink sugar and this lovely silver teaspoon. I feel so lucky to have met you Liz. She does not have a blog, but you can find her on flickr here http://www.flickr.com/photos/lala123/ she also has a beautiful Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/people/lala123
Thank you so much Liz, I love everything and it was such a pleasure to meet you. Thank you so much Sharon for hosting this most wonderful swap, it has been so much fun. I will be mailing your box off to you Liz on Monday and I will post pictures next week of what I sent Liz, after she receives her package. Thank you so much for visiting me today and have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Terri

Hello Terri,
I am totally enthralled about your wonderful swap. This cup and saucer is just lovely and I can't believe, it is from Germany. Actually the saucer reminds me to the tennis sets of Royal Albert.
I can imagine your excitement when you unwrapped Liz's parcel. OMG so many nice things. Everything shows her good taste and with so many love she has choosen the gifts for you. You will have many nice teas with those gifts. Enjoy it!
Greetings, Johanna

What a lovely assortment of gifts you received! I believe your saucer is actually a "snack plate" for your finger sandwiches and sweets at tea time. My package went in the mail yesterday.
