Stephanie's Tea Cup/ Mug Reveal Party ~

Once again it is time to celebrate with Stephanie over at ~
The Enchanting Rose

as she holds her 11th Tea Cup and Mug Exchange Reveal Party.
This is something that I know is a favorite of many, including myself.
I wait with anticipation of just who my dear Stephanie
is going to match me up with so that I can put together a gift package
in hopes that I may bless my recipient's heart
and this exchange was just as wonderful as all the past exchanges.
I had the opportunity of giving a tea cup and a mug
with both ladies being extremely easy and enjoyable to shop for.
My tea cup lady was Lea who has a lovely blog
that I happily follow and now look forward to becoming friends with.
Lea has been a real blessing through her comments on my posts
during this time of illness that mom is going through.
Thank you, Lea, for being a lovely "Southern Belle" with a sweet spirit. 
This was my gift for Lea ~


For my mug I had the opportunity of meeting a lady with a blog
whom I have never had the opportunity of "meeting"
here in our wonderful community of Blogging.
Dee has a lovely blog that you would enjoy visiting, I'm sure.
I had a wonderful time gathering treasures for Dee using one of her favorite colors,
it seemed as though her color ~ mint green ~ was abounding in every store.
Here is the gift I sent out to Dee ~


With everything going on with my mom I nearly passed this exchange by.
The dates were going to conflict with my travel times while taking mom to Arizona
and I didn't want to disappoint my sender should I not respond right away.
But God ~
Not knowing that my travels were going to change due to mom's health,
I listened to that still small voice believing God was 
directing me to sign up and trust Him for the outcome
and sure enough, the outcome was wonderful!
My heart was richly blessed when I received both my teacup 
and mug just one day apart.
I do not  usually sign up for a mug, but I'm so happy that I did
because I had recently broke one of my favorite large mugs that I very much
enjoy using for both coffee as well as my Lipton's cup-a-soup.
You need to have a good size mug for a cup of soup. 😉
Anne, who does not have a blog so graciously
packaged up the most delightful gift box for me,
 I felt spoiled!
These are the items Anne filled my gift box with ~
Note cards in a keepsake box shaped like a book,
a book on friendship, a frame with Scripture,
chocolates, a cookie cutter in the shape of a mug,
 some caramel cafe' escapes to die for!!
I shall never have to go to Star Bucks again. HA!
Anne, thank you so kindly for your gracious love towards me. ♡




The beauty of a rose ~
Laura  from Decor To Adore
was just the sweetest as she so graciously packaged up a {{PINK}} 
box of delightful treasures for my enjoyment.
My gorgeous tea cup/saucer with a matching plate
is Redoul'e Roses by Roy Kirkham ~ fine bone China from England.
Isn't it fancy?! I will certainly enjoy gracing my china cabinet with this set.
I was spoiled twice over from these two precious ladies.
These are the items Laura filled my gift box with ~
Rooibos cinnamon vanilla tea in a lovey tin, shortbread cookies ~ my ultimate favorite!
A tea cozy that I just know was made by her hands,
a darling little note pad that will go into my purse, chocolate
and a beautiful hand made pop-up card.
Laura, once again, thank you for the beautiful tea cup and pink treasures. ♡


♡♡♡♡♡

Stephanie, once again, THANK YOU, for the many hours that you pour into
your lovely exchange!
Being your mother, I have the blessed opportunity of hearing
through you, the many stories of these ladies experiences 
and the friendships made all around the globe.
 I too, have been blessed with lasting friendships made over a tea cup and or a mug.
As you pray over each name Stephanie, and allow God to direct you
in matching ladies up, you have no idea how God is using you
and how lives will be touched through this ministry of yours.
God has placed ladies in my own life through your exchanges 
who have encouraged my heart many times over
not knowing that I was in need of some encouragement.
May your heart and life be blessed abundantly
for all that you joyfully do for our enjoyment
through your loveliness.


Joy!
~ Debbie ~
