Stephanie, from The Enchanting Rose recently hosted the eighth teacup/mug exchange. This is the second time I've participated and I love doing so! This time there were 167 ladies that participated and they were from all over the world. I am amazed that Stephanie doesn't just pull all of her hair out organizing the exchange! :) We send to one person and receive from another so this offers a glimpse of the immense talent she has to coordinate this event. Thanks a million, Stephanie!
My beautiful and creative gift was from Wendy of September Violets She lives near Lake Ontario in Ontario, Canada. I highly recommend that you visit her blog and see how amazingly talented and creative she is. You will be so interested when you see the lovely gifts she sent my way! The photos of areas in Canada are stunning as well.
My photography is not that good, as usual. This photo shows a portion of the incredible gifts.
A close up of the darling card she made! Please note the red & white polka dots she made the moose from as well as added touches on other items.
A beautiful maple leaf!
Lovely gift tags
My beautiful mug, delicious coffee and the mug rug she made!
The darling moose, the aspen trees, greenery and, of course, the red and white polka dots!
A package of maple leaf candies.
This is the "real" thing...and may I say, delicious?
The container of "real" maple syrup was in the container with the red * white polka dot fabric.
There's nothing like the honest-to-goodness real maple syrup! Needless to say, I have not shared it. :)
I'm sure you'll agree that Wendy went above and beyond in pampering me. I was like a little child at Christmas when I opened the package. I am so grateful to her and to Stephanie for introducing us.
My gift went to Ida of Wishes, Dreams and Other Things. I didn't even think to photograph the items sent to her. :/
Give some thought to joining the next exchange ~ you'll be so happy you did!
