My Teacup Swap gift from Susan in Rhode Island

Well...my teacup swap gift from Susan in Rhode Island arrived yesterday...right in time for Valentine's Day!  I was so excited to unwrap it! I found the neatest treasures and goodies!

In the package was:
a lovely Grosvenor blue harebell cup and saucer
a package of cinnamon crumpets
home made (and yummy) lemon shortbread cookies made with a cookie press pattern of teacups and teapots.
honey sticks
Dove chocolate hearts!!!
Hersheys Chocolate Caramel kisses!
2 chocolate truffles
and 3 packets of tea:
Victorian Rose
Brattle Street English Breakfast
Creme de Earl Grey (apparently Princess Di's fav)
a lovely hand made Valentine card

Thank you so much Susan. A lovely gift...and being enjoyed already....a teapot pressed lemon shortbread a few minutes ago with our afternoon tea.
