Faith Hope & Cherrytree Swap

Hello, and good afternoon to you all. I have joined an amazing swap that Sharon from Faith Hope & Cherrytea has organised. I have been so excited about posting my gift out and receiving my package in return. Well today it arrived and I am so very thrilled with the contents. My partner's name is Lorene she has a beautiful blog of interior design (I believe this is what she does for a living). Well her beautiful package has arrived to my home today, YAY!

A lovely TC&S I think you can agree is lovely. This is one of her mothers who is now passed and as her mother loved England (London) She thinks her mum will be delighted that some of her TC&S ends back here in England. I love the lavender cushion (very British) and I love them. I asked for a hand made card and she has made one for me (a personal touch) as well as some lovely things to help make any cup cakes I make, look wonderful. The beautiful pin (attached to the cushion) and a lovely heart to hand in my bedroom (it's already on my wardrobe Lorane) The lovely stickers which I know will come in handy, being a crafter I'll find a use for them. Not forgetting the wonderful table runner (I think that is what it is) I didn't get the beautiful edging of it in these photos but be assured it's very pretty.

Here is a close up. I would be grateful if any of you can let me know any thing about this lovely TC&S you can click on the photo to make it larger but it says JP and it's marked France. the flowers are small and delicate and I really do like the pattern. Now the only thing worrying me is 1. I didn't take any photos of the package I sent and 2. I sent my package to her on the 29th of Jan and she still hasn't got it yet (it's going to Athens) and Lorene sent hers after me and it arrived today and poor Lorene is still waiting. So I am hoping she can e-mail me later and tell me it's arrived. Have a wonderful week end. Speak soon. Love Dawn xx

This is a lovely cup and saucer. I know nothing about markings, but there is a supposed to be a ton of information on the net to help with markings.

I know how frustrating it is to send something and the other person doesn't get it, or doesn't get it for the longest time. Patience, dear. I'm sure it will turn up soon.
