Tea Cup Exchange Reveal

I joined Stephanie's 12th Tea Cup Exchange again this spring and as usual, it was such a fun swap to participate in!
Here are the goodies that I received from Sheri in Las Vegas. Peach tea, a tea towel, recipes and a seed tin. There were also some gardening gloves in my package but I quickly put them to use and when I took this picture, they were too dirty to share! 
Sheri included a note with my package of goodies and it was fun to find out that her son-in-law comes from my area of Idaho.  It's a small world we live in.  Thank you so much for all of my stuff, Sheri! 
This is what I sent to Linda in Oregon.  
A tea towel, some tea, washi-tape covered clothes pins, a vintage finger tip bowl, a mini candle and mini matches that I decorated with vintage sheet music and of course, a tea cup! 
The tea cup has gold trim and pretty butterflies, perfect for spring.  Linda sent me a thank you note and I hope she enjoys her goodies!
Thank you Stephanie for always hosting such a wonderful swap!

Patriotic Potted Porch Girls Night

For the 2nd year in a row, my mom and I have had a girl's night out at The Potted Porch.  I am pretty sure this will now be an annual tradition for us.  And I love traditions!
I also love this cute little place.  What a great thing to have this adorable barn, plant beautiful flowers in really fun containers and invite women from all over to take park in a Ladie's Night event where they get to plant their own flowers with your help. 
You can also shop many different vendors while you are there.  My mom bought 5 HUGE hanging baskets for her patio.  I picked up lots of fun I just have to find the stuff to plant things in!
We have to take a selfie in front of the barn, it's a tradition after all! 
Here is our finished project.  For $35 this year, we got to plant these super fun patriotic sap buckets.  I picked out a silver one and my mom's is rust colored.  There were 6 kinds of flowers to choose from and you got to pick out 5 and 3 flags.  I love this! 
This cute little fairy garden also caught my eye.  My favorite part is the fence made out of rusty nails kept together by rusty wire.  Now I want to make one of these for myself. 
Part of Ladie's Night at The Potted Porch included a fun dessert bar.  I LOVE frosted sugar cookies so I grabbed one of these quick.  I am also obsessed with watching cookie decorating videos so of course this made me so happy. 
There was also a fruit salad, lemon poppy seed loaf and these adorable cupcakes in tiny terra cotta pots with fresh berries.  I took one home for Cody to snack on.   
I love this tradition so much and look forward to seeing what we plant next year!
