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 ~

Debbie, Even as you pour out His love to others so frequently, it was delightful to see how He used others to bless you! Love each and every item you sent-especially to sweet Lea(who I love)and I will have to get to know Dee. I'm so glad the gals that had you blessed you as you deserve! Maybe some day I will join in with the party-it seems fun, but could be overwhelming too.
Sending you love, hugs and prayers.

What a great swap, both sent and received! I'm glad you were able to participate, considering all that has been going on in your life. Sometimes we need that "getaway" from reality. :) Very pretty swaps, indeed.

Oh, Debbie, what a wonderful post - how extraordinary how it worked out with your travels too. God has it all planned out for us, has He not?

Your wonderful treasures that went out, and your packages from Anne and Laura are precious, indeed! Isn't fun to spoil and be spoiled!?

This is such fun - and your Stephanie is a blessing to blogdom.

Hugs, prayers and love to you, sweet friend. It seems not long ago at all YOU were my partner in the swap. ♥♥♥

God bless you.

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

So many beautiful things that you shared with your ladies and equally lovely things you received in return. I think my favorite part of this post though is your words to your daughter. You are both an inspiration and encouragement to so many of us.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree! I echo the other comments that dear Stephanie is such a blessing to all of us.

I'm glad that you were able to participate in the swaps and that they brought you joy during these tough times. It's always fun to see the delightful goodies that are sent and received. Your new coffee mug made me laugh and your pretty rose teacup is perfect for you!

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

Praise God for His mercies are very great dear friend, overjoyed to read your last few post especially that our LORD brought you, and your darling mum through the other side of it.
Gods mercies are indeed very great, great is His faithfulness.
So glad you were able to be blessed and to bless through Stephanie's mug and cup exchange, dear sis.
prayer hugs,

Your new tea time treasures are beautiful! What a pleasure to enjoy a cup of tea in such a pretty new tea cup. : )

Stephanie is such a precious friend. Her tea cup exchange has certainly blessed my heart.

Good morning, mom! Ah, what a delight to pop in for a litte visit and see the tea cup and mug treasures that were sent and received. Such loveliness!

I am very glad you were able to join the fun especially with all that you have going on right now. Thank you for faithfully participating in the exchange.

This exchange is such a delight. We get a lift and a smile when we need it. The teacup and mug are treasures withing treasures. Happy Exchange!

Linda Walker said...

Hi Debbie,
It is nice that you decided to take part in the exchange. Sometimes you just need something to look forward to when times are tough. More than a couple times I have received my tea cup package during tough times and what a blessing that can be. You certainly received some lovely treasures and let's face it, chocolate is the best medicine! So glad you joined us and also glad you were soooo spoiled. With all that you've been going through, I bet it was a much needed diversion and an instant lift! Enjoy and take care my friend! Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, xxx Linda

Beautiful gifts! This was my first time participating......so glad I did!

Marilyn @ MountainTopSpice said...

Dear Debbie, such generous and beautiful gifts that you sent out to both of your recipients, it is so fun to shop for each one, and to anticipate what will bless them isn't it! Like you I was unsure whether I should participate in this exchange because I knew I had two surgeries coming up in October but I felt like I should go ahead with it and I'm so glad I did! It was such a blessing to get my package the day after my surgery!! What a blessing this exchange is to us all! Many hugs and blessings to you dear friend!

Magpie's Mumblings said...

Stephanie is indeed one of God's treasures and I can't even begin to imagine the hours she spends being a shepardess to us all. I am so glad I can take part in this exchange and enjoy choosing special things for my partner and then the anticipation of what I will receive. Now the enjoyment multiplies as I get to visit with everyone.

Lady Linda said...

Greetings dear Debbie...all your gifts to and from others are just so perfect. I am glad it worked out for you to enjoy the exchange with everything going on in your world. I think of you often gracious lady.

Jodi Saladino said...

What lovely gifts you received!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Debbie, I'm so sorry you are going through this difficult time with your mother but that it worked out for you to enjoy sweet Stephanie's exchange.

Kris said...

Oh, Debbie, what a wonderful post and you truly were blessed by the dear ladies that gathered goodies for you!! I hope your Mom continues to get better and better after her surgery!! Blessings to you and yours!!

Annesphamily said...

Hi Debbie, your beautiful post made my heart smile. You really exchanged some treasures here! I felt so blessed too! Lovely ladies we partnered with. I am glad you had this sunshine while you have had to watch your sweet mom suffer with these setbacks. I have prayed for her and for you too. Often caregivers don't think of themselves but others. You are such an amazing lady and I am so grateful we met. One of these days we will have to go back to the Dusty Rose Tea and drink more tea!
I hope your mom is doing better and you are getting enough rest and taking a bit of TLC to enjoy your treasures. Have a blessed and beautiful weekend.
Hugs, Anne

Sandra said...

Lindo. Bom fim de semana. Cumprimentos.

Kelly @ Homespuns 'n Hayfields said...

Hi Debbie, what beautiful gifts you both sent and received. The gifts you received are so you! I'm so happy you were able to join in on the fun again, hope your mom is doing well.

Pamela Wright said...

A beautifully written post and such lovely treasures - thanks for sharing.

Celestina Marie said...

Dear Debbie, Once again the exchange is a blessing and your gifted items and those received, are beautiful. It was just at the right timing for you too while caring for your mother. I so hope she is improving and prayers continue for her and you as a caregiver. Our God has a way of setting in motion what we need in the difficult times.
As always your post is beautifully written and warms the heart. Stephanie has once again pulled together a beautiful exchange.
Sending love your way. xo

Kim said...

So many beautiful pretties to see here, Debbie. The gifts you sent are overflowing with beauty. The teacup you sent is gorgeous. As for the pretties you received, oh my, each one is lovely. Love the design on your teacup and plate and the tea cozy is so very pretty. Sweet Stephanie's teacup/mug exchange always gifts the loveliest of surprises and blessings.
