Enchanting Rose Teacup Exchange REVEAL

Gift sent to me from Regina
Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose hosts a yearly teacup and/or mug exchange, and this year I just happened to see her post saying that the deadline was in a few days. It sounded like such fun that I clicked the sign up even before reading all of the rules! Stephanie matches women up from around the world, and then emails you your soon-to-be-new friend. The fun part starts after that when you get to go shopping for a teacup or coffee mug that your new friend indicated as her favorite.

Regina in Arizona was given my name, and she outdid herself and sent me the wonderful goodies you see at the top of this post. I'm attaching a link to her blog so you can get to know her as well.

I chose to have my new friend living in the USA since I am new and got a late start this year, but next year, I'm hoping to gain a new friend from another country! :)

Stephanie sent me a detailed email about my teacup partner, Kris! She included lots of tidbits that Kris shared about herself. Kris recently moved to Oregon. How fun is that! She also is a hot chocolate gal - I liked her already! My gift package didn't have far to travel to her. It was a blast finding items that I thought she would love. A link to Kris's blog is above (she actually has 2 blogs!) so be sure to check them both out.
Gift I sent to Kris
I gained three new friends by stepping out and participating in this exchange. Stephanie, our wonderful hostess in all this fun, Kris, and Regina.

Thank you ladies! I look forward to reading your blog updates and gearing up for the 2018 Teacup Exchange.

Until then I'll be thinking of you each time I enjoy a cup of tea.

  1. I was just looking at blogs and somehow I came to your blog and started to read through and then see on your side bar that you read my blog. I think this tea cup exchange sounds like such fun - is it done yearly? I might like to get in on this :)

    1. Hey there Karen! It’s me JoJo in Oregon. You may not remember me, but yes, I’ve been following you for years. You even sent me information on your quilt frame years ago.

      I believe it is once a year but she may do two in 2018 because so many people love it so. It was a lot of fun to participate because it reminded me of the old days when one would get ‘pen pals.’ Oh my gosh am I dating myself now. LOL

      I think she has a link where you can join and get an email when she is ready to do another one. Thanks so much for commenting!

  2. Regina is a dear and sweet lady, whom I'm quite sure you will enjoy getting to know. Such a lively gift package she sent your way.
    Your gift to Kris was just as lovely. That hot chocolate sounded wonderful. :)
    I've come over to visit with you from my dear Stephanie's party. So nice to "meet" you.

    Enjoy your treasures ♡

  5. Good morning, sweet JoJo! Oh, what a delight it was to read your post this morning. I am so glad you joined the exchange because it allowed us to meet....indeed, new friends are ever so special :)

    Both packages are simply lovely and I must say I like how the one from Regina had a "fallish" feel to it. And oh, the tea cup you sent to Kris is quite stunning!

    Thank you for joining the exchange and I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself. I host this event twice a year, but you see, I was thinking of going to just one a year, but.....there are a lot of women that enjoy it {{smiles}} And some ladies can only join in the Spring rather than the fall so I may have to continue hosting it twice a year. We shall see.....
