Mug Exchange Fall 2016

I had so much fun with the teacup exchange in the fall that I decided to indulge and join both the mug and teacup exchange this time.  I am so glad I did.  Thank-you to Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose for coordinating this event.  
Again, I enjoyed putting my two parcels together and sending them off, and then looking forward to a letter back, the old fashioned way.
Of course, getting the packages was so much fun too.  I couldn't wait to see what sort of treats had been sent my way.  Wendy from September Violets had my name and her package really made my day.  
I think we all know that I love pumpkins, so I may have sqeed a little when I opened the parcel to find this wonderful mug and apron.

But first, just look at all the wonderful details in the packaging.  Gifts in of themselves.

And here are the gifts.  Cookie cutters, (I love making sugar cookies), scented votives and they both smell wonderful, a sweet little scarecrow that had no trouble whatsoever finding a place in my home, pumpkin place card holders which are so cute and I can't wait to create an opportunity to use them. Last but not least, treats.  Tea and chocolate always make a delightful combination.  If you haven't tried dark chocolate with chai, you should get on that.

And...drum roll please...the gorgeous mug.  My new favourite.  You will find this little darling within an arms reach of me all winter long.  It will keep me daydreaming of next years pumpkin patch all through that cold weather.  Thank-you so very much Wendy. Your thoughtfulness and generosity are appreciated so very much.
