Art Share ~ Bobbi Ann, A Marie Christmas Tea Cup Swap

A few days ago a shared with y'all a little tease of what I was sending to my Marie Antoinette Swap Partner.  The swap was for a Tea cup, our favorite tea, a handmade ornament and a cookie Recipe.  Well, Bobbie Ann sent me these wonderful goodies.

She sent not one but 2 ornaments.  This one is a beaded crystal.  I have never seen anything like it nor can I even begin to imagine how much work it was to get the design and shape right.

And here is the second ornament (at least I think that's what it is, whatever it is it is stunning!)  I just love the soft pink pearls she added and all the silver bling. 

Here is a close up of the lovely cup she sent (I am saving the detail pictures for Tea Cup Tuesday).  It is a Paragon design and I just love it!  And she sent me English Breakfast Tea, in the loose form so I can make it good and strong.  It's one of my favorites. 

Bobbie Ann also sent 2 recipes which you all know I am going to try.  She sent a Honey Nut Butter Balls and Toffee Bars recipe.  I'm thinking this weekend is going to be a big kitchen weekend for me.

Thank you so much Bobbie Ann, I love everything.  The ornaments are on the tree, my cup is safely tucked away in my display case all washed and ready for a cup of tea this rainy afternoon.
