Tea Cup and Mug Exchange Reveal


Good morning! Today I'm sharing the most beautiful colors and thoughtfulness that came all in one fun package! I just participated in the Tea Cup and Mug Exchange organized by 



Several times in the past I've seen bloggers share their pictures from this gift exchange and kicked myself for missing out. This time I jumped in for the chance to get to know someone else a little better and to trade sweet goodies. If you did not participate, you may wonder what this would have to do with you.... well, I always love to see gift ideas that others share. You might know someone who would love to receive a gift like this. Tuck this fun gift idea into the back of your mind. :)


I received my package from Lynn at Quaker Hill Farm. Upon opening the package, I was just over the moon with excitement! 

Lynn knew exactly which colors we use in our home and she sent tea towels and hand painted items that I will lovingly use and display. She knew that I love coffee and flowers and included pieces from the Pioneer Woman's dish collection in my gift box.


Lynn handmade flowers from crepe paper. I love her creativity! Just look at the pretty little wooden painting and the painted gift bag.  I think I'll gather up a jar and put fresh flowers in it then tuck it all inside that pretty painted bag. :)



She knew that I love gardening and sent a magazine for inspiration. 


I can tell you that I've already spent hours looking at this magazine. Now I'm ready to dig into the coffee and chocolate.  Lynn I hope you read this and know that you knocked my socks off! You were kind and generous with your gift and I thank you for it. ♥


I packaged up the gift for my blogging friend and sent it to Snap at Tales From Twisty Lane.

This really was fun and I'm glad I participated. Keep your eye out for the next exchange that Stephanie hosts. You do not have to be a blogger to participate.

Dear Stacey, what joy it was when I found out from Dear Stephanie that you were my mug partner! I love you light airy blog and of course all of the color! It has been a great pleasure to get to know you better. Spring is such a wonderful time of the year to delight in the beauty around us, and I am sure as you plan your home and garden it will be absolutely gorgeous! Have a wonderful week. Love, Lynn

Your parcel contained lovely items and I enjoyed my visit. Like you, I look for inspiration from others for what to tuck in when I send a teacup and I like the idea of a magazine.

Lynn is super sweet and I love what she sent to you. That bag is beautiful and what you are going to do with sounds fabulous!

Michele said...

What wonderful treasures both coming and going!

This was my 3rd time in the exchange. (I have only exchanged teacups so far.) I always forget to photograph what I send out. Cynthia send a package of treasures to me, and is now a new friend. I am so blessed.

I will always try to join in on the exchange fun as long as I am able, and as long as Stephanie is willing to sweetly organize it. ♥

Celestina Marie said...

Dear Stacey, so glad you joined in the exchange this season. It truly is fun and a blessings meeting and making 2 new friends. Lynn is a sweetheart and she gifted you with such pretties from Pioneer Woman. I think a few of us were thinking along these lines for the gorgeous colors and such. How perfect to receive a gardening magazine too. Lynn knew just the perfect thing for you. Tea time and to relax and dream with the magazine and treats.
Have fun visiting the reveals. Have a great week my friend. xo

Enjoy your gifts.
