A total of 167 ladies across the world joined in the fun with parcels being sent and received. It is now time for the big reveal and I can show you the teacup and goodies that I sent to my Partner in Tasmania Australia and the parcel I received back from Cornwall England.
This is the collection that I sent to Kim in Tasmania . The information that I was given to work with was that Kim liked Breakfast tea , Pretty pinks, pale greens, pretty blues, mauves and loves vintage shabby chic, petty style. No problems there then, a girl after my own heart!
Collection included , Everyday Brew tea bags enclosed
in their very own tea pot, pretty tiny rose patterned
teacup and saucer, decoupaged teapot coaster
and a silver teaspoon.
The teapot is a template by Diane Furniss
from Craftsuprint.com. Filled with tea bags from Tea Pigs'
and tied with pink raffia .
I decoupaged a teapot shape base using a pretty
rose design napkin and then gave it several coats
of pod podge to seal and give it a lovely matt sheen.
The card enclosed the story of the tea bags and
provenance of the silver spoon.
(It had a tale to tell).
Here are the goodies I received back from Dawn in Cornwall.
Collection included, Camomile tea bags ,
a lovely rose patterned teacup and saucer,
a handmade flower brooch(which has gone straight
onto one of my floppy summer straw hats), vintage lace
and buttons, craft papers and a beautiful handmade
necklace with a darling teacup and saucer charm on it.
Didn't I do well!!

And lastly here is the card and box that I made and sent
to Dawn to thank her for my goodies.
(I used some of the craft papers that Dawn had sent me).
