11th Tea Cup and Mug Exchange Sign-Up

***Registration is now closed***

Tea is to the body
as music is to the soul.
- Earlene Grey -




Sweet friends,
it's time for the 11th Tea Cup and Mug Exchange!
If this is your first time participating in the exchange 
than let me warmly welcome you - I am so glad you are going to join the fun.
If you are a returning participant than let me just say "Welcome back!"




The past Tea Cup and Mug Exchanges have brought many women together
from all around the world and lasting friendships have been made.
The idea of this exchange formed one day while I was looking at my collection of tea cups
and I thought to myself that it would be a joy to bring ladies together over a cup of tea.
The first exchange was a success and soon mugs were included
since everyone has different tastes and styles.
At the end of this post you can visit the links to previous exchanges
and see what others have been blessed with.

Now, lets go over a few details 
and hopefully I will answer all of your questions concerning this exchange.

Please read this entire post for the complete details.

It's very easy to participate. . .

The exchange is open to everyone 
whether you're from America, England, Canada, Sweden, Australia, etc.
The more the merrier. . . 
and who doesn't love making friends from another country?

Also, you DO NOT need to have a blog in order to participate.




Let's go over a few rules . . .

{ 1 }
You will need to purchase a tea cup with a saucer or a mug, 
or you can send one from your own collection;
it's completely up to you.
If you send one from your own collection 
please make sure it's in good condition with no stains or chips.
Tea cups or mugs from antique or thrifts stores are also fine,
but again, please make sure they are in good condition.

{ 2 }
Please add tea or coffee 
AND 
at least one extra item to your tea cup or mug package.
It can be handmade treasures, doilies, linens, etc.
Some participants enjoy sending a package full of goodies
while others are only able to send a few items.
Either one is fine and acceptable.
You can look at the reveal post from the last exchange 
to see what other women have received.
The link will be at the end of the post.

You will send a tea cup/mug package to a special someone 
and you will receive a tea cup/mug package from a special someone else
so you will be making two friends in the process.


{ 3 }
You must fill out the registration form in order to participate.

All you have to do is click on the link below
and answer the questions.

Registration Closed

{ 4 }
PLEASE do not join the exchange only to receive something
and not send anything out - this is terrible etiquette!
If you sign up than you are committed to sending a tea cup/mug parcel.
I understand that life happens
and if you sign up, but then realize you cannot participate
please let me know before September 20th.

*** Whatever you sign up to exchange is what you will send and receive. ***
You can also sign up to exchange both a tea cup and mug.





Sign up for the tea cup exchange will start today, September 13th
and will go until Wednesday, September 20th.
so we have one week to sign up and spread the word.
I will email each one of you on either Saturday the 23rd or Sunday the 24th
with the information you need to send your special someone her tea cup or mug.

We have until Friday, October 6th
to get a tea cup/mug package together and shipped out.

I would advise those of you who choose to ship overseas to send your packages out
immediately after receiving the information of the person you are sending to
because shipping takes at least 2 - 4 weeks longer.

And finally. . . 
I will have a linky party on my blog the first or second week of November.
so that we can share our treasures with everyone.
The reason for having the link up later 
is because we want to make sure everyone has their tea cup or mug in hand.

If you do not have a blog you can send me pictures of your new tea cup or mug
and I will put them on my blog for all to see.

Does everything make sense, sweet friends?
You can email me with any questions that you might have:
kekepania525@gmail.com

For those of you that sign up I will be in touch periodically via email
with updates and reminders.




One more thing, I will also be giving your email address to the lady that is sending to you
so that if there are any issues with shipping you and the sender can work things out.
If you do not wish for me to give your email address out than please let me know.

The Tea Cup and Mug Exchanges in the past have been a tremendous blessing
and I know this one will be as well so please join us for some sweet fun.

Thank you SO much Stephanie for doing this for us - it has to be a huge undertaking for you and I sincerely hope there are helpers in the background making it easier for you.

Hi Stephanie, It's time once again for the beautiful exchange. I regret that this season I have to pass due to my schedule. I hope, and I know everyone will have a wonderful time exchanging pretties and making new friends. I can say it becomes a highlight not soon forgotten each time we use our gift.
Thank you dear for all you do. I'll miss this one, but sending my best wishes for a great exchange! Blessings. xoxo

Lea said...

I have been looking forward to this and knew it was just about time. I filled out my form and wanted you to know that the only reason I said I would not be a volunteer to help you send out packages to those who do not fulfill their obligations is because I am going to be gone so much of Oct. Wow, that was a run on sentence. Sorry! I felt badly saying no and wanted to explain that to you. Thanks for all your work on this!

Hope you have a wonderful day!
