11th Annual Tea Cup and Mug Exchange

Today is the big reveal for the 
Over 200 participated from all around the world.
Many thanks, love and hugs,
 to the wonderful, lovely Stephanie
at the Enchanting Rose for her hard work putting this exchange together.

I participated in the Mug and Tea Cup Exchange.
It's so much fun shopping for someone else.
Let's face it --- shopping is fun!!!!
"Meeting" new tea lovers, making new friends.

Tea Cup Exchange

My teacup box of goodies is from Sherry Vlcek.
Sherry lives in New York and is a quilter.
She doesn't have a blog.
I love my quilted scissor holder.
Around my neck it goes -- I'll always be able to find the scissor!
Pin cushion, too!
The strip to hold the iron cord is very clever.

The teacup has a lovely, delicate flower pattern.
Two of my favorite Bigelow teas: Green Tea Jasmine and Pomegranate.

Tea Cup Exchange

Sherry is allergic to cats, but her husband is a cat lover.
He went out and found the mouse cat nip toys.
My kitties love them!

The Good Humor Kids Say the Funniest Things is delightful.
She also sent Elizabeth George's One Minute Inspirations for Women.

Cute tea stationery!


Teacup Exchange

My Mug box of goodies is from Ida Krause.

I love Owls and Ida went Owl shopping!
She also filled my box with cherries.
I don't know how she knew I love cherries, too!

Mug Exchange

The owl mug is perfect for fall.
The Berry Sangria candle was wonderful -- all gone!

Mug Exchange

When I was just starting my tea drinking experience as a very young woman,
I started with Constant Comment and Celestial Seasonings tea.
Black Cherry Berry is one I hadn't tried and it is great!

Mug Exchange

All the Owls together.

My thanks to Sherry and Ida for my boxes of goodies.
What fun it was to open them.
I giggled, ooooed and awed all the way!

Thanks again to Stephanie.

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

What a fun and delightful tea cup gift set, even your cats were blessed!
That tea cup has such a dainty pattern to it, just lovely.

Ida is a sweet heart, loves cats too 😉 and she sure did her home work on you. Cherries galore! That is a cute mug and will hold plenty of liquid.

Margie said...

Your teacup package is the cat's meow, while your mug package is a hoot!

Stephanie said...

Can I just second what Margie said! I laughed out loud when I read her comment :)

I love both packages and I am tickled pink that your tea cup partner sent you treats for you cats. What a fun idea!

I so enjoyed my time visiting with you this morning. Thank you for joining the fun again. Hugs to you, dear one!
