NAME Tea/Coffee Theme Swap & Tea/Coffee Shop

I love participating in NAME swaps.  It's like Christmas or a birthday surprise every time I get to open the package.  I haven't been to a NAME houseparty yet - which I've heard is like miniatures on steroids - so hopefully some day I can go - but this and the other online events makes my membership worth it.

This time the theme was coffee/tea shop.  

Here is my little tea/coffee shop with all the swap goodies:

The tea pot is actually from my very first NAME swap. It's by Ginger Landon Siegel who has a website.  I remember opening it and thinking "Wow."

The hat shop has moved out (and may be becoming a thrift store - new concept) and has now been replaced by this coffee/tea shop.

But I've gotten ahead of myself.  For the swap, I made a pillow, apron, and a cup of coffee with cream (see my June post about cupcakes and coffee for 10!). 

Here are all my completed pillows and aprons for the swap. 

Plus the coffee for the three items in my swap package:

And here are all the swap items back. 

So many great little items.  I love all of them.  The boxes of tea and coffee and the glass jars of tea.

 Cakes, cookies, cupcakes, donuts - yummy!

I love the bright colors of the little tea canisters.

The coffee-themed place mats!  I think they also look like they could be menus. 

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I also love swaps. Making a theme swap is a good idea. This way everything you get is useful. Your aprons and two other items are lovely.

    1. Thank you! And as you noted with all the different camper results in your mini club, it's always interesting how everyone produces something different.

  2. Weird! I've been off blogger for a while, come back to visit your blog and I notice I've dropped off your followers even though you show up on my 'cool blogs to visit' list...Wish blogger would stop messing with settings 0~o
    Anyhoo, love your gifts but especially love the aprons you made. How sweet are they! =0)

    1. That is odd. But I consider you one of my main followers in any event :).
      I love the acorn cottage you just posted. Are those real acorns? How clever!

    2. Yeah, it's an actual walnut shell, perfectly cut in half and put back together with windows and doors and then acorn tops for roof canopies. =0)
      As for blogger - glad you didn't bump me off your list =0P
