And speaking of my box...it came decorated!
This exchange I received a teacup from Ang of the Just a Country Girl blog. She was so sweet, she emailed me a few times to learn more about what I like before putting together my box, and since I said I loved the Christmas season,
She sent me this beautiful mug (or teacup as the case may be) rug and matching coasters! I love the mix of light blue with red. I can also leave it out all winter, so I'm thinking inspiration for a January tea post? We'll have to see. And of course the assorted flavored black teas is a hit with me.
But, how about a close up of the pièce de résistance:
Such a pretty teacup!!! I love butterflies, in fact my everyday china is Lenox's Butterfly Meadow, so not only is this teacup lovely, it matches my china.

I sent my box to Libby in Tennessee. I'm not sure if she will be linking or not (she has had some troubles with her blog this year), but here is a peek at what I sent her:
Libby said Fall was her favorite time of year, and she really liked owls, so I had extra fun trying to find things she would like...it really was like a treasure hunt! She also sent me a lovely thank you note, so I think she liked her box.
Here is the close up of the Paragon teacup I gave her--a very timely find at my favorite thrift shop (yes, the exchange is totally an excuse to visit my favorite thrift shop...and Homegoods of course).
So we went from winter to spring to fall all in one post! Thanks so much to Stephanie for hosting this wonderful exchange and working to match up all (192) participants! I'm linking to The Enchanting Rose's 9th Teacup and Mug Exchange Reveal!
