So, most of you know I love quilts and everything that goes with them, and you know that I live on a ranch in central Texas with my husband where we have horses, cattle, goats and sheep. You may even know that we use Border Collies and that I love training them and enjoy participating in Sheep Dog Trials. You also know that I'm Nene to 5 (almost 6) darling grandkids. But one more love I have is "pretty dishes". I was raised on a ranch on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains. The ranch was established by my great grandfather about 1900 and is still in the family. Ranch life is hard dirty work even for the women in my family, but my grandmother demanded that we all have clean faces, clean hands, combed hair and good manners when we sat at her table and it always had pretty dishes! Made me feel like a "fine lady" like those I read about in books.
So...when I found sweet Stephanie's blog, I just knew that I wanted to participate in her tea cup exchange. I not only love pretty dishes, but also collect tea cups and saucers! In this particular exchange, each person makes two new friends - one you send to, and another that you receive from!
My tea cup and lovely, lovely goodies came from Kim who lives in Australia.
There are not enough words to express how thrilled I was with the wonderful treasures!
Kim and I have corresponded, but another Great Big Thank You!
I sent a gift to a sweet, sweet lady in the UK, named Dawn. She mentioned that she like silver, so that was my main color. These were the goodies I sent to her.
Her Thank You to me was so very, very sweet and homemade!
Isn't it delightful!!
Here's a link to Stephanie's Blog where you can view all the gifts that transversed the globe!
Blessings and hugs to each of you!
