I recently had the privilege of participating in the Tea Cup & Mug exchange hosted by Stephanie at The Enchanted Rose. I learned about the exchange after visiting her blog from a link party. When I learned about it, the deadline for participating had ended, but after commenting that I'd sign-up for the next one, Stephanie e-mailed me and invited me to join this one. I was ecstatic!
After completing a questionnaire on wanting to exchange a mug or tea cup & things I liked/collected, all I had to do was wait. Soon, this beautiful package came in the mail from Pam @ Virginia Retro.
As you can see, she really spoiled me. In my questionnaire, I shared that one of my favorite colors was yellow and my favorite teas were Earl Gray and Chai. Pam sure delivered! She also included some vintage linens, coasters, a creamer, and chocolate (another favorite that I listed).
I sent a package to Barbara from Texas. I learned that she liked black tea and vintage handkerchiefs. Fortunately, we have lots of antique/vintage shops around here and I was able to find the perfect tea cup and handkerchiefs. She doesn't have a blog, so here's a peek at what I sent to her:
I was thrilled to find handkerchiefs that matched the tea cup.
This was such a wonderful experience. In a world where there is so much divisiveness it was lovely to participate in something that was fun with the intent of bringing joy to someone else. We really need more of this, don't you think?
Many thanks to Stephanie for organizing this exchange. I'm sure I'll participate again and maybe you will too! I'll be linking this post to her blog shortly.
Thanks for stopping by the Cottage. I hope you'll follow and stop by again soon. Have a wonderful week!
