Tea Cup & Mug Exchange Goodies & More


I joined Stephanie's Tea Cup & Mug Exchange for the 2nd time this fall and as usual, it was such a great exchange!  Here is what I sent to Sarah:
She collects aprons and when I found this sweet floral one, I knew I had to send it to her.  The mug is just too cute and I filled it with coffee, cocoa and a doilie.  I made a card for her and sent a glittered white rose clip too.  I hope you enjoyed your goodies Sarah! 
Sweet Anna sent me 2 mugs.  The yellow one has a heart in the bottom so when you are done drinking, you get a little surprise.  She made the white one and the back has mountains on it.  That one is going in the camper to enjoy up in the mountains! 
She also sent a little package of Earl Grey tea, a hazlenut candy bar that was delicious and the clips and twines are to be used to hang pictures.  What an adorable idea!  My most favorite part of the package was the amazing moving card she made me. 
Just move the little arrows and the girl takes a picture, flash and all!  She is so talented and she sings too.  Thank you so much Anna for everything! 
I cannot even believe that we are in November already.  This year has flown by!  I had a fun Halloween and we dressed up 80's style at work.  Can I have crimped hair everyday? 
Since I only get 4 trick or treaters, I make extra special treats.  I cut out vinyl bats to put on these little flashlights and packaged them up with some candy.  They were a hit! 
And I just had to share this little makeover I did on a dollar store carvable pumpkin.  Some acrylic paint, rolled fabric roses and a seam binding bow and you have pure beauty! 
And the winner of the Ramsign is Margaret.  There weren't very many comments and I got only a few email entries so your chances were pretty good.  Congrats Margaret!
Happy November friends!

I love the tea cup and mug exchange idea. Wish I had known about it. I've been absent from the blog world for a while but I'm back now. I also liked your trick or treat bags! Great idea.
Happy November

Oh Trish, look at you! You are simply darling :)

I so enjoyed seeing what you gave and received. The apron you sent to Sarah is beautiful! I think it's the perfect addition to her collection.

Both mugs that you received are beautiful...I especially like the one Anna made.

Thank you for joining the exchange as it's always a joy to have your sweet presence. Hugs!

The card is so cute! And what a good idea, to put the mug in the camper. Seems like a perfect fit!

Hello Trish! I am from Idaho too, we must talk :) There aren't many of us, you know {smiles} I am enjoying this little hop around tea party, visiting each of the special ladies who participated in this amazing tea exchange, and what a delight for me to settle in and visit you tonight. You put together such a lovely package, the apron is over the top gorgeous! And that pedestal mug, swoon! Such delightful and thoughtful gifts you received as well. Such fun it has been to be a part of this exchange. Happy to have met you today, and hope we get to know each other better :)

Hi Trisha! Your mugs - two fo them, nice- are absolutely wonderful!

Yes, we are truly blessed that Stephanie does this for us all - what a gift unto itself - those friendships formed.

You look great as an 80s chick! I was one and I had long blonde spiral permed hair for years. Love it. : - )

Lady Linda said...

Love both of your mugs and other little goodies! Such a fun swap! Your Halloween treats are very cute! I planned to do something similar but time got away from me! :( Love your pumpkin redo too! The flowers are sweet!

Your mugs are great and I love the idea of the little heart surprise at the bottom. The clips and twines -- what a great idea to hang pictures! Looks like Anna is very talented. So nice she shared with you. Love your pumpkin. Have a lovely tea day!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

The mugs you received are lovely and who wouldn't want to find a little heart in the bottom! I've not seen a moving card like you received but think it is adorable how it works.
Your hair looks nice all crimped for the 80's party and since we only had 10 kiddies Halloween night I should make special bags for them too - great idea.

Consider It All Joy said...

Love the mug you sent away and receiving one hand made is very special! Also, your little trick or treat bags are the Best! Who wouldn't love those! Blessings, Cindy

Cheryl said...

I'm sure that Sarah loved the pretty package that you sent her. I also like the cheery yellow colour of the mug that you received. That's really cool that Anna made the "mountains" mug.

Your Halloween costume made me smile. I'm also a child of the '80s and I celebrated my 30th birthday with an '80s themed party. Gotta love the crimped hair and side ponytails!

Debbie said...

What a lovely parcel to receive and a great card too. x
