11th Tea Cup / Mug Exchange

It's "Reveal Day" for the 11th Tea Cup & Mug Exchange hosted by the awesome Stephanie from the Enchanting Rose Blog.

This event is always so much fun to participate in.  Not only do you get a fun package in the mail but you also get to meet new people and become friends with them.

My partner that I sent to was Sharon who blogs at Tales From Twisty Lane
You can click on the link to see what I sent her.  It was so much fun picking out the various items.  She & I both love Owls so I had fun finding some fun owl items to include in her package.  She has a great blog so be sure to check it out.

Next up the partner who had my name is Donna Gabbard.  She has a blog at Paper & Fabric & Books...Oh My

It was so much fun opening her package.  She had wrapped everything in lovely tissue paper.

Here is what I received:

Check out that gorgeous Fall Mug - It's so pretty and has been used a lot already this fall.  There was also some great tasting Black Chai Tea, which I love.  -  Then there was this beautiful little box decorated with an embossed leaf - Which is now hanging on my office cabinet wall, so pretty.  Inside the box...

Yummy Chocolate Candies - They didn't last long :o)

Check out this selection of Tea, Cocoa, Coffee & a delicious cookie wafer.  I actually shared the wafer with my granddaughter, Coleen who had eaten one on a trip and said they were yummy,  She was right. - That Pecan coffee smells so good. 

Inside the lovely box with the tea pots was some pretty napkins, a daily planner for next year, some Washi Tape, and Ink Pad and a cool looking Owl rubber stamp.  I just need to find time now to stamp something with it.

Finally there was a beautiful book of poems with flower illustrations and a cute owl journal.  Along with that a sweet and cute card with a wonderful note from Donna.

Everything was just perfect.  Thank you so much Donna.

Thanks also to Stephanie for hosting and putting this event together.  She does a fantastic job and I know everyone who participates is blessed by it.
