Stephanie's Teacup / Mug Exchange



Hello sweet friends!
Yes, I'm really heading South!
Actually I fly out today, or rather tonight.
My dear Stephanie is having her 6th annual
teacup  and mug exchange
and I wanted to share it with you before I went away.


These are just a few of the precious treasures
I have received through her lovely exchange.
I have had the opportunity of meeting
sweet ladies from all over.
One in Texas ~ one in California ~ one in Canada ~
one in Germany ~ one in Italy ~ one in the Northwest
just to name a few.


"The warm rays of love,
generosity, integrity, honesty, sharing and caring
kindle the spark of life and blessing
in the heart of true friendship."
( Karla Dornacher ~ Friends Forever Book )
~
Not only have I received some beautiful
tea cups and lovely gifts
but the friendships that have been made
through Stephanie's love and beauty
in her exchanges are endearing.
Through this exchange
 you will meet and make new friends
from around the world.
Oh what joy that is!


"The daintiness and yet elegance
of a china teacup focuses one to be
gentle, to think warmly
and to feel close."
(Carol & Malcolm Cohen)


I know Stephanie would love for you to join her,
and your heart will be blessed, I just know it.
You will find sweet communion
of kindred spirits over a teacup.
Come ~ join the fun!


Thank you Jesus, for the opportunity
to meet and make new friends
whom we can fellowship with
all through a teacup.
Amen.

Joy!
~ Debbie ~

I will be joining with
Roses of Inspiration

Hi Debbie, what a lovely post to promote sweet Stephanie's teacup/mug exchange. She is the best hostess. I was able to join in for the last one and had a wonderful time. This time I have to pass but look forward to many more in the future. Wishing you and everyone a wonderful time and I hope to visit to see all the wonderful gifts sent.
Have a blessed month of February.
Love and Joy be yours!

Oh, Debbie, what absolutely beautiful teacups! Yes, what a blessing it is to meet and make new friends and to share the beauty of these lovely items with each other! Have a wonderful trip, and may God bless you with a time of refreshment and warmth in the warmer climate! Warm hugs with love!

Stephanie said...

Well, you certainly surprised me! When I was about to click on your icon at the party I first thought to myself, "Oh goodie, someone shared tea cups!" And then I looked closer at the small icon and thought, "Wait a minute, that looks like the tea cup mom got from Kitty." :)

And it was you! What a delight to see this post - you are so kind and thoughtful to promote the exchange. It truly is a blessing to meet the precious women that join. I never thought it would grow so much and I am thankful to the Lord for making it possible for I sincerely love hosting the Tea Cup and Mug Exchange.

I am praying for you! Love you!

Your daughter is one special young lady. Having only gotten to know her over the past several months, I am enjoying her friendship and letter writing. And those tea cups are amazing.
