Teacup Swap from Ronny

I participated in Stephanie's 8th. Tea Cup and Mug Exchange and the reveal day has finally come!
I believe this is my 5th or 6th time I have participated.  This is such a fun party Stephanie hosts and its a wonderful way to meet someone new, and hopefully make a lasting friendship.
Ronny picked and sent me this beautiful pink teacup and saucer all the way from Utah.
It was with such joy to open her beautifully tissue and lace wrapped box from Ronny.
She handmade the pink card and roses envelope and very pretty bookmark.  
I was so pleased and it was such a treat to read Ronny's handwritten letter to me.  I honestly can't remember when did I last received a very well handwritten letter.  It surely beats text messages and emails.
Ronny and I have many things in common we enjoy doing; and one of them is crafting.  She handmade this beautiful bookmark.  Doesn't it look like lace?  But this art form is called Parchment Craft.  She also handmade the pink card above using this technique.
I have not tried this technique before and I think I might in the near future.
Ronny included this tiny book called A Little Cup of Tea as part of my gifts.  It was the perfect finishing touch for my my teacup wall display!
Thank you so much Ronny!!!  I was very blessed that you had me as your swap partner.

Also, I want to thank Stephanie, The Enchanting Rose, for hosting this wonderful party and for all of the hard work that you put in making it a success!

My Mug Swap Partner I sent to is Carol Vandevanter this is what I sent to her:
I got into the spirit of wrapping Carol's teacup package for her, that I completely forgot to take before pictures.  Luckily I did take a picture of her teacup and saucer...phew!

Have a wonderful day!!!
