9th Tea Cup and Mug Exchange Reveal

“I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.” – Chuck Swindoll 





On arrival of my box, I was so excited to see what was inside! Kim blogs over at Wisdom with Needle and Thread, and gifted me with a gorgeous infuser mug along with an entire box of my favorite tea, some pretty stickers for my scrapbooking/journaling, and a sweet card tucked inside a lovely vellum envelope!!!


 I adore the delicate floral pattern in soft blues and greens with sweet pops of yellow and orange on my mug. It's rimmed in gold too. I love the fact that it is an infuser mug! I have never had one of these. As soon as I saw it, I immediately washed it up and made a cup of my favorite tea, Plantation Mint! 


Thank you, Kim, for the lovely gifts! I use my tea mug often and love it!!!

I sent my package to Rainey, who is also a blogger over at Flower Lady's Musings and just happens to live about an hour from my sister! We've exchanged several emails. Rainey is SUPER at correspondence and I have loved learning more about her life in S FL. I have gotten interrupted every time I sit down to write Rainey and end up sending out a fairly quick and short note. It drives me crazy! I'm so sorry about that Rainey! Please don't give up on me. I have truly enjoyed getting to know you and sincerely hope we get to meet one day.

  11. Anne, I love infuser mugs and can get multiple infusions just by removing the infuser. Your mug is gorgeous. I'm jealous! Ha! The exchange is so much fun and full of love. Makes the world a much "closer" place. Have a lovely week. May it be tea filled!

  13. I absolutely adore that mug- not only is it beautiful, but it is so practical and functional too!

    Stephanie works so hard at putting these wonderful exchanges together - I shudder at the logistics, I can hardly remember to pick up milk at the store - and the blessings she gives to us in this way is amazing. The true treasures are the friendships made for sure.
