Tea Cup Exchange From My Friend Sherri at Little House Paradise

Saturday morning (can you call 12:00 noon morning?)
still in PJ's, my husband yelled, 
"Hurry, there's someone at the door."

Me??? Hurry???
Why not you???

It was the mailman with a package.
He had no intention of opening the door.

Calm down, Mr. H.
It's alright.
(He only gets excited when he's not dressed)
Take that either way you want to!

I opened it to find this...


from Sherri.

It is so pretty.
She must have been peeking in my window
because it was just what I love!

There was a surprise tucked in too.

I've admired this magazine
from the rack while standing in line at Walmart, 
but I've never purchased or read it before.

I was so excited.

I pulled it all together 
with some of my other pink goodies.

I'm crazy about the dried roses.

A photographer, I'm not.
Especially when I still can't plug in the cord 
to download from my camera.  

The doilie was included.  
Don't you think it's a nice add to my pink room?

Thanks, Sherri
I am delightfully grateful,
