Hello Everyone,

First I wanted to thank Stephanie for doing a wonderful job with the Time for Tea Swap. Lots of fun!! And thank you for the lovely "tea house", you are so talented.

Next, I received my package from my partner!!! YAY!! Melanie from Jelly Bean Angel was my partner and sent me a lovely package, well packages. She recreated for me an English cream tea in a summer garden. How cool is that!

So here is what she sent... the first 3 parcels...

The second 3 parcels.... click on this picture to read her note. All the parcels had to be opened in a specific order.

And the last 4 parcels...

This is what was in the parcels. A CD of wonderful music to listen to while having tea, an apron, a kitchen mitt, towel and wooden spoon. These are all to keep myself clean while making the recipes that she sent. The recipes are for 3 different kinds of scones, which I absolutely adore.

Of course some chocolate, variety of tea, jelly, a placemat and coasters of roses from her garden. They are gorgeous! And a table cloth and napkins where Melanie hand appliqued the wonderfully bright teacups on the edges.

Also included was a spoon/tea bag rest tea pot, and a beautiful bag to carry all of these in so I can go to any garden and have the tea party!

Lots of fun! Thanks so much Melanie! You really made my day and I think I will be planning a little tea party with my friends soon. After all I must try the tea and of course the scones.

Until next time....
