Courting Spring: A New Teacup

Hello Friends!

How was your Monday?  

I know, I know...
it's Monday...
it's winter...
it's snowing AGAIN, or is it STILL.  
I don't know anymore. 

BUT look what was waiting for me when I got home from work...  
Shall we open it together?

The shipping label says it came from Georgia.
My new friend Pam is from Georgia.
Pam is my Teacup Swap Partner. 
What a pretty thatched roof cottage box
and cute little drawstring bag. 
Look at all this.
 Tell me this teacup doesn't scream, SPRING!
 Pam chose an English teacup in the prettiest 
sky blue.  It is trimmed with gold and has these
beautiful flowers on the inside brim.
 I love it!
My special parcel included candles, 
a Mary Engelbreit rhinestone 
teapot embellishment,
a coordinating napkin, vintage spreader,
adorable teapot writing pad, and 
African Rooibos Red Tea.
What's in the bag?
Ghirardelli chocolate to be exact...
Pumpkin Spice Caramel to be even more exact!

Is this a great way to start the week or what?
It feels like Christmas.

Thank you so much Pam for such a lovely
package of delightful treats.  

I'd also like to thank Sharon
for hosting this wonderful teacup swap.
I had a wonderful time shopping for Pam,
seeing what everyone else received,
and coming home to such a treat.  
 Would you like to see the others' teacups?
