~ Tea Cup and Mug Exchange ~

Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose recently hosted another Tea Cup and Mug Exchange. This was my first time to participate and I'm thrilled to share my amazing experience with you! 

My amazing gift was from Peg who is a fellow Texan and lives not far from me. I have to tell you, it was like Christmas to receive the package and all the treasures inside!

Such a beautiful fall theme and everything wrapped in "candy corn" paper!  Take a look at the lower right corner ~ she took the time to copy a few recipes and share them.  She wrote a lovely letter introducing herself and it's like we're sisters from another Mister!  :)  The note cards are perfect too and I'm sharing them when writing my Chemo buddies.

Aren't you jealous of the incredible chocolate candy and cookies?

I was excited and really didn't take such great photos so please excuse!  I've stated before that I'm not a photographer ~  and yes, I'd LOVE to have a new camera.  Take a look at the little pumpkin!  Peg also took the time to crochet that as well as a little mat for the mug.

Isn't it adorable?

Aren't you dying over this coffee??  More decadent chocolate ~ :)

The darling mug in my favorite color ~ red ~ along with the little mat. I think it's incredibly nice that she took the time to crochet, copy the recipes, write the wonderful letter and then package everything so beautifully!  I wasn't advised that Peg has a blog so will share this with her via email.

Sadly, I did not photograph the package I sent to Adria in Colorado. Maybe she will share with Stephanie.

Thank you again, Stephanie, for organizing this exchange!  You do such a wonderful job of matching us. Makes my head hurt to think about all you do!  :)


  1. What wonderful gifts and such a darling mug, Pat! The crocheted pumpkin and coaster are so special. It's so nice to meet new friends and Stephanie does such a wonderful job. I don't know how she does it, either, but she does it with such a kind, loving, giving heart. Enjoy your new treats!

The crocheted pumpkin is sweet, and butter cookies are a favorite of mine. It looks like you received a special gift.
