Mug Exchange reveal! ☕


Such fun!

Thanks to Mary Anne @Magpie's Mumbling post, I participated in Stephanie @The Enchanting Rose Tea Cup and Mug Exchange. I had heard about it before, but this year I decided to join in on the adventure.
You choose if you want to send/receive a teacup or mug, or even both! I chose a mug, I'm not very dainty. πŸ˜‰

This is what I received from Carolyn @Seaside Cottage. Such a beautiful mug, I love the glossy colour. Instead of coffee, she sent me a spicy chocolate mix (18th Century style chocolate) to add to my coffee. Just a little spicy, but yum! This week it's supposed to get much colder so I'm going to try it with instant coffee and hot milk, I can't wait! She also sent fireweed jelly, something I had never heard of before. She lives in Alaska and it's common there. A lovely sweet treat, luckily no one in the house typically uses jelly so it's all mine!
I don't remember seeing Fireweed when we were in Alaska, but if when we go back I'll be looking for it.
Thanks again, Carolyn, perfect goodies for the fall.



I sent my mug and goodies to Barbara @Small Moments.
Take a look there to see what I sent her. I will show you what I made though. 

I thought it was cool that growing up we had driven through her town in Cornwall, and funny that the mug I found was actually made it Britain - nothing like coming back home!

So thank you, Stephanie, for organizing this wonderful exchange, one I will be happy to participate in again in the future.

Hello, I'm visiting from my dear Stephanie's party.
Such a unique mug all the way from Alaska and that jam sounds interesting, though I would say it's going to taste wonderful.

Barbara is a lovely lady, whom I'm sure you will enjoy getting to know. Your hand made gifts are darling.

Enjoy your treasures ♡

What a wonderful exchange. Fireweed jelly sounds perfect for Dragon Stitching too!
Love the goodies you sent to your partner.

Hooray! I'm so glad you decided to participate and just look at the goodies you received. I must admit that fireweed jelly is somehow fitting when you think of the name of your blog!!!

My dear Astrid, what a delight to pop in for a visit this morning. I am so glad you joined the exchange thanks to sweet Mary Anne :)
