Tea Cup and Mug Exchange #9

It's been quite a long time since I posted anything on the blog, almost six months to be exact. I've had a lot going on this year and honestly, I had planned to write about all of it. That plan, however, did not work out. Blogging has been the furtherest thing from my mind and I have had no desire to write. Don't count on this post being my big comeback either. I think for the most part my blogging days are done. Then again, once I finish school, I may need another outlet and pick it up again, but I am not making any promises. 

Today my post is about a tea cup exchange. I participated in a tea cup exchange earlier this year right before I moved out of my house. Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose hosted another mug exchange last month and since I loved it so much the first time around, I decided to participate again. 

I was given the name of Maureen from Pittsburgh and I sent her a tea cup and saucer as well as my favorite tea from Celestial Seasonings, Coconut Chai Thai. I discovered this tea when I was in Colorado on vacation earlier this year and my dad and I toured the Celestial Seasonings factory (which was a fantastic tour, by the way). This was one of the teas that we were able to sample and I loved it and bought a box. Since then, I've ordered more boxes and ordered an extra one just for this tea exchange. Hopefully Maureen liked it as much as I do. Also in the box I included a tea towel, a little sign that I picked up at Kirkland's and a small candle. 

I received a package from Sharon who also happens to live in Pennsylvania. She sent me a cup and saucer that appears to be very old/antique-ish and I love it. The pattern is so pretty and dainty and I have enjoyed drinking tea from it. Sharon also included a box of Pumpkin Chai tea, which, admittedly, I still haven't tried. I have so many different teas at home that I haven't gotten around to trying this one. I really need to do that! Sharon also sent a cookbook from the Amish community close to her home and I have enjoyed looking through the recipes and picking out some things I want to make. As I'm sure you all know, I do very much enjoy cooking! 

One again, the tea cup exchange was a very uplifting and fun experience for me and I hope to participate again sometime.
