Tea Cup Swap for Barbara

I participated in Stephanie's 9th. Tea Cup Exchange again!

I really enjoy doing this every time Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose hosts one.

Let me introduce my lovely Swap Partner Barbara who I sent a tea cup to, and looks so very happy opening her package!  Barbara does not have a Blog, and hopefully some day soon she will!  She shared with me that she has been hosting a Halloween Tea Party now for several years.  Wouldn't that be a great post to read about!!!  ;-)

I carefully packed all of this for her, and mailed it all the way to Texas.

This is the tea cup and saucer I picked for her.

I thought it would be very appropriate for her Halloween Tea Party.
Barbara likes vintage doilies, lace, hankies, I found a tatted doily for her.

Barbara was the reason I created the Googly-Eyed Halloween wreath!  Wreath and Halloween paper chain (made by moi) were received by Barbara sans bottle of wine...sorry!

Barbara enjoys drinking black tea.  To make her box a little more festive, I included a small crochet pumpkin.

A headband that she can wear for her tea party (or everyday of this month), some pumpkin shaped pasta and...

a sweet pumpkin shaped sugar cookie to go with her tea.

Since Barbara is from Texas, I thought she wouldn't mind having a little something from her own State to hold her tea bag!

Another crochet doily for her collection, and a tea pot cookie cutter in case she wants to bake some cookies for her party or use it as a napkin ring.

I added a few fall leaves so that Barbara can experience a little bit of our MN autumn!

Confession Time: I always forget to take photos of swap packages before mailing out.  I had already wrapped every thing, and then I remembered I hadn't taken every thing was unwrapped and photographed, and re-wrapped again...not funny...!!!  I just get too excited!

It was a great pleasure putting this together for you Barbara.  Enjoy!!!

Thank you Stephanie for another fun tea cup swap.  Until next time!!!
