8th Tea Cup and Mug Exchange Reveal


Welcome, sweet friends,
to the 8th Tea Cup and Mug Exchange reveal!
I want to thank each and every lady that participated in the exchange
because it is these ladies that make this exchange possible.
With each exchange the participation continues to grow
and for the 8th one we had 167 ladies - what a joy!
You will see in the pictures below 
the love that went into each tea cup and mug package.
The photos in this post are from ladies that do not have blogs,
but at the end of the post there is a place for ladies with blogs
to link up their reveal post.

For the ladies that participate in the exchange
they have the opportunity to win a giveaway that I host during the event.
This time I offered these pretty little items for one blessed winner. . .




I gathered the names together and the one I drew was . . .
Mary Christman!
Congratulations, dear one!
I will send these goodies off right away.

If you are interested in learning more about the Tea Cup and Mug Exchange
you can read about how it all came to be by clicking here.

Now brew yourself some tea or coffee, grab a cookie
and enjoy the tea and mug loveliness that is about to greet your eyes.

* * * * * * * * * * * * *

I want to start with this tea cup photo because it deserves some special recognition. . .
Janice was the lovely recipient of this tea cup package
and it was sent by the sweet Kitty from Kitty's Kozy Kitchen.
You see, the lady that was supposed to send to Janice did not fulfill her promise
so dear Kitty came through and sent a package of love to Janice.



Another lovely lady that filled in and sent an extra package was Cindy
I can't thank these two ladies enough for being willing to send an extra package.
Their character is simply beautiful and I admire their willingness and selflessness
to make sure other participants were blessed when the original partner did not come through.
I do not have a picture of the goodies Cindy sent to Sophia,
but I wanted to acknowledge what Cindy did.

Dear Adria was another lady that did not receive a mug from her original partner
so I happily went shopping on Amazon 
{not something I normally do, but time was running out}
and had the parcel shipped directly to her. 



Thank you for visiting, dear friends.
Again, if you are interested in learning more 
about the Tea Cup and Mug Exchange
than please click here.

I recommend checking back over the next few days
since everyone will link up when they have the time
and from past experience ladies usually link up over a weeks time.

Much love to you!

Oh sweet Stephanie, how this Teacup/Mug Exchange blesses all of our hearts, and it's all because of YOU! You pour your loving heart and soul into organizing all this loveliness that blesses each and everyone of us that gives and receives. I've mentioned before that I don't know what is more fun...finding the perfect gifts and sending, or eagerly awaiting the surprise package to arrive! Thank you for your kind words that you said about me. Your Amazon gift that you sent was wonderful! I so enjoy looking at all the generosity and creativity that all the ladies put into sending to their recipient. Congratulations to Mary on winning your giveaway! Thank you, dear one, for hosting your 8th Exchange. I hope to be able to participate for as long as you are our lovely, kind, thoughtful hostess. I love you!

Dear Stephanie,
Just wanted to thank you once again for the opportunity to participate in this teacup exchange. I know that it takes an enormous amount of time to organize this and see it through to the end reveal so I want you to know how much I appreciate all that you do to make it the success that it is!

....and look at all the love and generosity shown in these photos and the photos revealed in so many other blogs today! It's truly a blessing Stephanie and so are you!

THANK YOU dear, sweet Stephanie!

Sweet Stephanie,
Oh! So much fun to look at everyone's gifts! I had such a wonderful time with this exchange. I actually cried when I entered. I think we need happy moments in life like this. A time when it's all about enjoying one another and looking forward to something special.
You are a darling young woman and you bring so much joy to so many people dear Stephanie. Your gift is encouragement and we all were very uplifted by your kindness and hard work in putting this together for us. I am really looking forward to the next exchange and enjoying my gifts and new friends I made because you loved us all enough to do something special for us.
Hugs from Shirley

I enjoyed seeing them all

Denise said...

I enjoyed so much, thank You again Sweet Stephanie

Kira Brennan said...

I can't believe I missed it! Ever since I found your blog and knew you did teacup exchanges, I wanted to participate in the next one! It must have happened when I was on a bit of a mental internet break :)

All of the packages look MARVELOUS. I definitely have to watch more carefully next time around so that I can join the fun!

Debbie Harris said...

Stephanie, there is so much beauty to behold here today with all the photos of the treasures and love gifts that ladies have received and gifted. I have taken the time to sit over a cup of tea in my beautiful new mug and just slowly look at all the little details in every package. It amazes me that you can have this many participants and rarely see duplicates. The ladies go to such care in finding the right fit for their lady. I love it!!
Now for you, my dear... Your love has been spread all across the globe once again. It brings tears to my eyes as I read the sentiments of these precious ladies. Truly, God has had His hand upon these exchange.
Congratulations to Mary, may her heart be blessed with her lovely win.
A BIG pat on the back to you three ladies who were willing to step in and touch a life that may have been forgotten.
Thank you again for making this possible so our hearts may be blessed.

Love you dearly~~
Mom

tealady said...

This is one of the most awesome thing ever. This is my 2nd time and I look forward to many more. Looking at all the pictures has given me ideas for the next one. It feels like Christmas morning when I receive my package.

Red Rose Alley said...

Stephanie, I just came over from Celestina's blog and saw her pretty green butterfly tea cup. I enjoy your tea cup exchanges, even though I'm not a participant, and it's so fun browsing through all the goodies. Oh my, look at that red rose cup! And that picture frame with all the different tea cups, I LOVE THAT! I wonder where she got that from, it's so lovely? This is a fun thing that you do, Stephanie, and I'll have to participate one of these days, but for now, I'm enjoying your posts so much and these gals are so creative with their ideas.

love, ~Sheri

Lisa said...

Stephanie I hate I missed this! Where have I been?!!! This looks like so much fun and every ladies' personality comes through in their choices. Such loveliness! I'll definitely be here for the Fall exchange!

Words really fail to put into perspective just how much this teacup exchange has meant, and what your hard work, love, care, prayers, and so much more that have been put into making this such a joyful thing for all these precious ladies... and not only that... as we sip our tea or coffee over the following months, special thoughts will always be in our hearts both for our new friends, and for you, dear Stephanie, for working to make it happen. As I browsed through each delightful entry in this exchange, the joy overflowing in each picture was lovely to behold. Thank you again, you are a dear... and I pray that the Lord's richest blessings be upon your life, and that He provide riches for your soul to encourage, uplift and bless you in response to all the heartfelt gratitude we all feel! Much love and prayers!!!
