11th Tea Cup and Mug Exchange - The Big Reveal!

Stephanie over at The Enchanting Rose recently hosted her 11th tea cup/mug exchange.

While this is the 11th exchange that Stephanie has organized, it is the first time I have participated.  When I signed up, I indicated whether I was interested in a tea cup or mug (I chose mug.) and I also gave some personal information, such as hobbies, favorite color, stuff like that.

The person that I was assigned to send a mug to was Ida.  I found her a cute bird mug and a few other "goodies" and mailed the items off to Walla Walla, WA.  If you want to see what she received, you can take a look at her "reveal" blog post here.

Kris, who blogs at Lavender Quilts, had my name assigned to her.   Here is a picture of the lovely gifts I received from Kris.........

The mug that she sent was so pretty.  Take a closer look. 
  See the cute bee flying around the lavender flowers?  Well, take a look inside the mug........
  Kris also sent me some "made in Oregon" gifts, such as yummy cranberry jelly beans and cranberry blood orange black tea.

A cat cross-stitch pattern, handmade doily, and a book was also included in my package of goodies.  Kris' sense of humor was evident by this gift that was included in my package.....
  WAX LIPS!  😂😂😂😂

Thanks again to Kris for all the gifts and to the exchange hostess, Stephanie for making this a fun exchange.  


  1. Oh, you lucky girl. Kris used to live a few miles away from me, until her recent move to Oregon. I miss her.
    Her humor is delightful, and whatever she does, she does well!
    Love that mug she sent you!

  2. Wasn't this so much fun? This is my third one and I enjoy it so very much. Glad I popped over to visit. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. Just need a picture of you wearing those lips! :) Love your gifts!

  4. Oh, how neat! Kris is the lady I sent my package to! It's a small world here in blogland, huh? I love everything you got, especially the beautiful mug with the little bee on it. I love any shade of purple! It was so nice to "meet" you tonight. Thank you for your sweet visit to my blog! God bless you. :)

  5. Hello Donna~ I've come for a visit from my dear Stephanie's party.
    Such a pretty mug and I love the bee inside.
    I was given some cranberry blood orange tea from Stephanie awhile back and boy was it ever good! Every time I serve it to guests, they always compliment it.

    Id'a is a sweetie! I had the joy of gifting her a mug a few exchanges ago.

    Enjoy your treasures ♡
