Each year, Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose hosts a delightful tea cup and mug exchange for ladies from all over the world with the goal of forging new friendships. This year, I was blessed that Olivia invited me to participate – it was truly a lovely event, one that I’m grateful to have been a part of.
Once the signups were in and Stephanie assigned us our tea cup partners, what fun it was to create a package of surprises for the recipient! I was assigned to Sarah, and it was delightful to discover the many things we have in common, including our shared love of the color blue.
Once the package was in the mail, anticipation of meeting the other exchange partner set in. Stephanie thoughtfully matches ladies up with two different partners – one to mail to, and one to receive from – thus granting the opportunity to cultivate two new friendships.
And then a gorgeous package appeared in my mailbox from Ruth!
Inside was a beautiful array of items.
A teacup, practical as well as lovely, in my favorite shade of blue. As I’ve used it, I’ve appreciated the sturdy construction as well as the gorgeous color. It’s so petite and yet strong!
Tea with mint. I’ve never tried this kind before but look forward to it. I do love mint teas.
A watercolor painting, made by her sister. Aren’t the colors and the verse lovely?
Fall kitchen towels. I love both blue and fall, so these are perfect.
Thank you so much, Ruth! And thank you, Stephanie, for your excellent and efficient organization of this event!
