Tea Cup Tuesday Easter Tea and Swap!


Hello All!
Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday!
What a delightful and Renewing Easter it was here at my home.
I give great thanks for my family,
our home and our health.
After hearing a healing Easter message from the Chapel at Duke University my family and I enjoyed a lovely tea and talk. So much fun!


Everyone received a small present, as our children are no longer little ones wanting baskets.


(This little sweetie is from Martha!)

I have been lucky to be in 3 Easter tea cup swaps this past month and today I am sharing the baskets, goodies and tea cups. I will share the tea cup Martha gave me today and only a little of the other two so I can showcase them in the next two Tea Cup Tuesday.

I received this adorable bunny basket full of goodies from Martha! She made the spoon art, isn't it lovely?! The lace, buttons and bookmark are so pretty and the little bunny is wearing a sweet angel pin! Which I will be wearing next! There is a beautiful "wonderland card as well that I adore. Thank you so much dear Martha!

This large wicker basket with a wooden top, plus all these goodies are from Sylvia at Sylvia's Simple Life. She is my Tea Cup Tuesday Easter Tea Cup swap partner. Sylvia sent me a lovely table runner, which is on my small tea table now, and a bunny tea towel as well as the beautiful bunny family figurine! She also sent me wonderful tea, chocolates, a pen and note pad shaped like a tea cup, and silver spoons, a beautiful tea cup and a handmade card!
I will showcase the tea cup and spoons next T.T.
Thank you so much Sylvia!

And these beautiful wrapped gifts and a tea cup from Terri (I am keeping what was inside as a surprise to share soon!, just wait till you see what is inside these packages!!!)

Now back to this sweet cup from Martha....Look at this beauty! Abundant flowers and gold trim!

Little wild flowers on the inside rim.

I think my favorite part of this trio (other than the fact that it came from my dear friend Martha) is the wavy edges of the plate and saucer as well as the swirl design on the outside of the cup.

This cup is a Coalport, a fine maker of china. The pattern as you can see is called "Junetime". Coalport used this backstamp post war in 1926, but this cup may be much later than this.

Thank you all who joined in the Easter Tea Cup Swap! I have seen some of your posts of your baskets and I can't wait to see the rest! I hope you all had as much fun as I did.

What joy you must have had in receiving and opening the beautiful packages. The treasures inside are wonderful!The teacup from Martha is everything one would expect from a lady who knows her teacups and how to pick just the right one.

Your table setting is very pretty and I like the idea of a small gift by each place setting.

Oh what a beautiful Easter tea. Looks like such a good time. We had more of the frenzied getting ready for church and home for dinner and egg hunt with my girls. Good times though, just different. :) I love looking at all your swaps. I so wanted to play in your cup swap, but I thought being a newbie to cup swaps I should try our Marie one first. I can't wait to do another one. Have a wonderful week.
Hugs, Holly
