Stephanie's Tea Cup/Mug Exchange (4th for Me)

October 14, 2015

Hello Friends, I am so happy to be joining Stephanie at
 The Enchanting Rose for her 7th Annual Teacup and Mug Exchange!

The Enchanting Rose

This is my fourth Teacup and Mug Exchange that I have participated in and it's always fun to receive a fun package in the mail and to make new blog friends.

You can visit my other exchanges here:

Exchange #4 - Here
Exchange #5 - Here

I was assigned to send my package to Sue who lives in North Carolina and she blogs at Pear Tree Lane Farmhouse.  Sue, I do hope you enjoyed your goodies, as I had so much fun and enjoyed gathering and making the items I sent to you.

I'd love to show you my awesome package I received in the mail from Mary who blogs at Material Girl Quilter.

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

Everything was wrapped up so nice and put inside a pretty box with a pretty festive dish towel and bracelet wrapped around the outside of the towel.

I love how pretty everything was wrapped in black tissue paper with the silver ribbon.

Mary wrote me such nice note and I love the card with the bear sitting in the cup with flowers.

Here are all of the wonderful goodies I received from Mary.  It felt like Christmas for me as I sat there opening up my gifts.  She included in the package a Paris themed mug with peanut M & M's (which I love), shortbread cookies, dark chocolates, different flavored hot cocoa mix, a dish towel, bracelet, and pretty box.

These are the assortment of hot cocoa's that I will enjoy drinking during the fall and winter months in my new mug.

Here is my new Paris themed mug which is perfect for a large cup of hot chocolate and coffee.

I love the pretty box that Mary included with everything.

The shortbread cookies are so amazing which I enjoyed already with my afternoon coffee.  I can't wait to have the Acai and Blueberry Flavored Chocolates.

Here is my gorgeous new mug which I have enjoyed using already.  I am waiting for colder weather to enjoy the hot cocoa in my pretty mug.

Thanks so much Stephanie for arranging your awesome teacup and mug exchanges.  I have enjoyed the ones that I have participated in so far and I have so much fun meeting new blog friends.  I look forward to participating in more of your exchanges.

Thanks Mary for this awesome package of goodies as I love everything.
