Tea Cup Swap and Tea Party

 I recently joined Stephanie's Tea Cup Swap. She has a swap for tea cups a couple times a year. It's a nice way to meet new people.  I received a beautiful package from Patti, not a blogger at this time.

 Inside was this pretty tea cup and lovely hand made card and a few more gifts....

 a tea bag holder, tea, hankie, doily, chocolate and a sweet book mark. THANK YOU, Patti! It was a great gift. I sent a package to Dolores, who doesn't have a blog, but you can see it at The Enchanting Rose's blog.

 Last Monday I had a few gals over from church for a little tea party. We are planning a Christmas Tea in December for the ladies/girl at church.

Here is the luncheon sandwich that I made. One layer is chicken, egg salad and ham salad. It was pretty good. It's covered with a cream cheese "frosting"!

We've been moving into the new shop since Monday. All moved in today...Now, let's hope for lots of sales!
We are at ANTIQUES ON MAINSTREET!  913 Main Street, Hopkins. Right next to Auntie M's! I will be there on Sunday from 12-5!!!  Booth is PAD... I have put up a little Christmas! More to come!

I'm helping a elderly lady from church with a sale. Tomorrow is pricing and the sale is Fri-Sat. That is my week!

I always appreciate your kind comments! Take care. I hope your week is a good one.
