I'm Thankful For...A Tea Cup Exchange ~~~Day 4

I'm thankful for....a tea cup exchange

Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose hosted her annual
tea cup and mug exchange during September. It is such 
a sweet time to make two new friends through the gift 
of a tea cup or mug. I had the pleasure of sending a tea 
cup to a young lady named Abigail, who does not have a 
blog.  Mary Jo sent me a beautiful tea cup in such a lovely
box. Here are some photographs.   
Mary Jo included a box of Sugar and Plum Spice tea, a  
cute little picture frame, a darling tea cup made in the
U.S.A., and a book, "Afternoon Tea : The Art & Pleasures
of Taking Tea," in this pretty box.
 Look at this delicately lovely tea cup.
Thank you, Stephanie, for putting on such a 
wonderful exchange. I had a delightful time
participating, and I hope some of you readers
will join the exchange next time. :)  


Recently, I had the opportunity to review
Tea Shop Folly by Carrie Fancett Pagels
Almost destitute, Lilly has run out of hope when she inherits 
her great-aunt's home--but it's not the Tea Shop that a handsome
young gentleman thinks it is. Lilly's inherited house is crammed 
full of tea cups. Theo, a Soo Locks engineer, visits frequently in
the hopes he will find the perfect antique teacup for his mother and 
is charmed by the lovely 'Shoppe owner.' Lilly can't turn the bachelor
away when he persistently peruses her aunt's collection, which she's 
trying to pack up and remove from the house. Is the man only interested 
in the teacups, or in her? When Theo begins referring people to Lilly, and the 
genuine Tea Shoppe owner sets the police on Lilly for her lack of a business license,
sparks fly!       

This novella is only 95 pages long, but it's a sweet little story with a little bit of 
excitement, mystery, tender fondness, and a captivating theme. It's perfect 
to read while you have a cup of coffee (or tea if you prefer that instead.) :)  

Carrie was so kind to send me a copy to review.
Thank you, Carrie! :D I really enjoyed it.

This book is available on Amazon here. 

I hope you all have a very lovely weekend!
