11th Tea Cup & Mug Exchange Reveal

Coffee, tea, and friends
make the perfect blend.

Hello and welcome, sweet friends,
to the 11th Tea Cup and Mug Exchange reveal.
Today is the day we get to oooh and aaah 
over the  tea cup and mug loveliness sent around the globe.
You will find this post is filled with photos from participants who don't have blogs
and at the end of the post there is a link-up for the women who do have blogs.
I hope you enjoy your visit and please,
take your time in viewing all of this delightfulness. . .
simply relax and soak it in.

Before we begin, I want to express my gratitude
to all of you ladies who participated in the 11th Exchange.
There were 211 of participants this time
and many were from England, Scotland, Malaysia, Australia,
New Zealand, Greece, Spain, South Africa, Canada, USA, 
and even the Czech Republic.
All of you make this event more special and beautiful.
You are a unique and precious group of ladies 
and it's an honor to be able to host this exchange for you.
Thank you for simply being YOU!

One last thing before we jump into the photos.
I host a giveaway for the participants
and usually it's a gift card to Teavana.
Well, I just found out that Teavana no longer offers gift cards
so I did an Etsy gift card instead.

The winner of the $25.00 Etsy gift card is. . .

Olivia Bell

Congratulations, dear lady!
You will receive an email with the gift card number.

let us pour ourselves a cup of tea, coffee, cocoa, or cider,
grab a sweet treat, and enjoy the pictures. . . 

Tea. . .
is like a warm hug.

Thank you sweet Stephanie for hosting such a wonderful event. I do not know how you do it all. I have truly enjoyed participating and I am enjoying my "Lady Linda" Teacup so much. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Tanya Rachelle said...

Thank you Stephanie! What a wonderful exchange and fabulous to take the time over the next few weeks looking at all the pics and blogs! What a wonderful group of ladies to see so much love is truly remarkable. Thanks for being a beautiful hostess and for bringing light into the world in your own special way. It makes a difference!

Michele said...

WOW- look at all those wonderful treasures you are sharing from non-bloggers, too - oh Stephanie, isn't it something????

I tell ya, you should charge a fee for doing this - how many countless hours it must take you to put something of this magnitude together - mind boggling, my friend. I know I couldn't do it - I can barely keep coming and going for one straight in my "senior moment" head!

Thank you so much for yet another perfectly awesome and wonderful tea cup exchange, dear one. You've done it again! ♥♥♥

Debbie Harris said...

Oh my goodness Stephanie!! Beauty all around and so much love has been shared with these dear ladies from all over the world. As I look through these photos, in my heart I am singing" All over the world the Spirit is moving" God certainly used you as His vessel in bringing ladies together and friendships made that I just know will be lasting.
You have most assuredly been used of God in a very special and lasting way.
May you find rest and enjoyment now as you take time to visit and see the works of your lovely hands that you have so graciously labored with over these past weeks.
Enjoy your cup of tea now and have a most beautiful day.

Love you dearly~

Wow!!! You did a fantastic job of pulling that all together, Stephanie. It is amazing to see all the different cups and goodies people exchange. I didn't see any but wondered if there were any duplicate cups in the exchange. xo Diana

Dear Stephanie, I am redoing my comment since it had an auto text error, lol... Once again you have outdone yourself with all of the efforts put forth to make this Teacup Exchange such a success! It does not go unnoticed the hours and time that you spend making this happen for us! I pray that the Lord will bless you abundantly as only He can and reward you for your diligent hours of making all of this happen! Such a lovely assortment of tea goodies that just went all over the world, I enjoyed scrolling through each picture and imagining how each lady must have been so thrilled with her goodies, so much beauty all in one place! Thank you again for your efforts at making this such a pleasant time for all of us, much love to you today!

I always enjoy seeing the apologies for not participating this time around...hopefully in the spring when I am back in school and working. Great gifts and teacups, my friend.

Margie said...

"Joy in a tea cup", indeed! Thank you for all the time and efforts that you put into organizing another successful exchange, Stephanie! As the others have said, your exchanges bring so much joy to the participants. I will enjoy viewing all the tea pretties over the next few days. It's also neat to see the variations of your teacup coaster and teabag holder.

Gina said...

Stephanie, WOW! What wonderful exchanges! Thank you and all the ladies involved. So blessed to see all the treasures!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

What a feast for the eyes and the soul looking at all of the thought and care that went into all of these packages! And what an undertaking for you to post all of the pics for those without blogs -- even MORE labor for you in this project. Thank you - you are such a blessing to so many!

Paige said...

Wow, there are so many beautiful, creative and kind gifts displayed here, and I haven't even seen all of the ones from the link-up yet! Thanks again for taking all the time out to host this event Stephanie; I can see that it is a blessing to many. :)

Deborah Montgomery said...

Wow, just look at this dazzling array of goodies shared by all these women from around the world!

Wow, what a lovely display of love and friendship with blog buddies. Many who will never meet in person, but the love shared can easily be done across the miles.

Ashley said...

Dear Stephanie,

I just wanted to say thank you again for hosting and putting on this event. My mom, sister, and I always have suc fun making new friends and giving and receiving packages. :) Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment on my blog. :) Thank you for all the work you do. If the Lord leads you to have the spring exchange, that will be wonderful! But if not, I will eagerly await the fall one. :) (I like the one you have in the spring because it falls during my birthday. :D )

Have a lovely, happy, and Christ-centered day.

Sharron Torres said...

Thanks so very much for creating and organizing this lovely teacup exchange! I was serendipitously guided to your blog by the Father above...just two days before registration closed! I immediately signed both myself and my Mom Patricia Burlow up. My Mom is a long time collector of beautiful things in general and tea cups in particular...and this past year she has had to part with many of her "beautiful things" due to downsizing after the recent death of my Dad...her beloved husband for 58 wonderful years. Ì knew this would be a wonderful event for her to take part in and I hoped it would give her some joy in life again. I began shopping and shopping and searched for just the right things for our exchange partners...all while keeping the wonderful secret from Mom! It did take me a bit longer to finish up wrapping and shipping off the goodies because I have a very badly injured hip and I am scheduled for a hip replacement on nov 20th. It is not easy to do this on crutches but I did it and it all was so wonderful to send off gifts and to receive lovely gifts too...but the very best was seeing the surprized and very happy look on my Mom's face as she opened such beautifully wrapped and thoughtfully chosen gifts from her exchange partner "Marina". She was most especially joyful was when she opened the teacup box and one of her favourite patterns was revealed...she was speechless with happiness and pure joy. This is one of the wonderful "gifts" that this exchange makes possible...Thank you again Stephanie for all your work arranging this exchange and to all of our exchange partners I am so sorry I have not sent the "Thank You" cards yet but they will be in the mail shortly. Preparing for my hip replacement has been very difficult this time and then I got shingles...oh my...they are NOT fun! I will be mailing thank you notes you know why they are late but life has brought many surprises this

Tamago said...

Congratulations on another successful tea cup and mug exchange, Stephanie! Wow 211 must have been a lot of work and fun organizing everything :-) All the gifts look wonderful!

Conniecrafter said...

Looks like you had a wonderful exchange once again!

Pamela Wright said...

Thank you so much Stephanie for organising such a special event. This was my first year and I will definitely be with you all for as long as you keep this event going.

Have a wonderful day.

Celestina Marie said...

Dear Stephanie, What a beautiful exchange. All the gifts sent and received are incredible. Once again you put together an event that blessed so many. I am enjoying my visits and seeing all the pretties. Your photos are beautiful and you can see the love in everyone.
Wishing you a beautiful week ahead. Sending love your way.xo

How fun! I sat down with my cup of tea and looked at every single one. Everyone was so creative and unique with what they sent. I meant to comment sooner but have been sick for almost a week. Better now. My lemon ginger tea has gotten me through once again! Hugs.. Marilyn
