Another Tea Mug Exchange!

Friday, May 23, 2014

I recently joined my friend Stephanie at her blog The Enchanting Rose for a tea mug exchange.  I really had fun picking out the tea mug and other goodies for the person I was assigned to send my package to.

Here is what arrived in the mail for me from the mug exchange.

A very pretty tea mug which matches my kitchen just perfect and Organic Black Chai tea leaves.



This is what the inside of the box looked like when I opened it up.

Packed inside the box was tea, a tea mug and yarn.

 This pretty shade of dark purple Alpaca yarn was included in the package and I will love creating something new with this yarn.

I really love this light green box with the pretty flowers on it that the tea mug came in.



I also received a pretty card with a note for me.

What I love about this tea mug is that it is microwave safe and dishwasher safe.


My gifts arrived from Melinda who has a lovely blog called Melinda Blogs.  Thank you Melinda so much for the beautiful tea mug, organic black chai tea leaves and the yarn.  I love how you even took the time and stopped by my blog to see that I enjoy knitting and included yarn in the package.  I will love drinking tea and coffee in my new mug and knitting with the pretty yarn.

To see the rest of the tea cup exchange, please stop by to visit Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose.  Thank you Stephanie for hosting this fun tea mug exchange and to my new blog friend Sandra at Ravenhill Cottage who I sent my package to.

Thanks again Melinda for such a lovely package and I have already started using the tea/coffee mug and love it.  One afternoon soon I will make my new tea and decide on a new project for my yarn.  

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
