My daughter and I have participated in a bi-annual tea cup and mug exchange for a while now. I ran across it myself in a blog, and it lead me to the wonderful lady, Stephanie, who leads it on her blog The Enchanting Rose.
How it works – you sign up for to exchange a tea cup, mug, or both and she pairs you up. When I say pairs you up, I mean she reads every entry and looks for similarities with who she puts you with – there is no random selection thing going on here. Not only does she pair you up with a specific person to give your items to, she pairs you up with a different person to receive your items from. Therefore as she says – you make 2 friends in the process of giving once.
All you are required to do is give your tea cup/mug and one other item of your choice. From my experience, everyone generally goes above and beyond because they are having so much fun with it.
This was the 11th tea cup & mug exchange and had over 200 participants world wide!
My daughter and I both sent ours off – mine to Michigan and my daughters off to Florida. My new friend Deborah in Michigan likes many of the same things I do. Just the most delightful person. You can find her blog here: The Beautiful Matters
*You do not have to have a blog to participate.
Here is what we received…
Mine traveled up from Texas…
I received this very large box – I felt like a little kid, so excited.
The first thing I see is a Happy Fall Y’all – one of my favorite seasons, couldn’t be more perfect!
Oh my goodness, and everything was wrapped up! Wow all the time and thought…
Upon opening each item – a fantastic tea mug, and tea bag plate, hot pad, towel, soap, candle, notebook and note cards, and the most delicious apple cider tea!!! I was treated so well! Thank you “Snap” 🙂 Hugs to you my new friend. You can find her website here: Tales From Twisty Lane
Now for my daughter’s package…
She received the following package from her new friend in Pennsylvania.
My daughter was so thrilled when she got her package. Again, such a generous gift and all of the things she loves. She is making tea and hot chocolate in her new mug almost daily!
Such an amazing event and opportunity to build community and friendships! I truly love this event and look forward to it 2 times a year!!!
