2016 Teacup and Coffee Mug Exchange

2016 Teacup and Coffee Mug Exchange

I’m delighted that you’ll be joining us for my annual tea cup exchange! It’s very simple to participate! You agree to send a carefully packaged teacup and saucer (or a coffee mug) to someone, and she will agree to send one to you. Please select something to give that you would like to receive, and please use tracking or insurance, as I cannot be responsible for lost or damaged mail.

Once all of the names are gathered, Renee will match partners and notify each set of exchange partners about the email and mailing address of their tea-pal. You and your tea-pal will correspond via email if you like, and ship one another your treasures.

Please, send a picture of your teacup or mug to Renee, after you receive it. One name will be drawn from among those who send a picture, and that winner will receive a lovely package of 60 teabags from Fortnum and Mason on Piccadilly, in London.

Sign up here to participate in the exchange!

      I was delighted when I saw this in the antique market in Covent Garden a few weeks ago. It’s from the era of Queen Mary, I believe! So glad you’re joining us.

    I just sat down with a Cup of Tea and to check my emails and what do I find?! This sounds like a wonderful idea!

    Beautiful teacup and saucer. Sadly I do not have tea cups because I collect teapots. This is a great idea though Sandra!

      I think Kirsten collects teapots, too! Join us for the tea and recipe, anyway!

    Ah, now this is such a lovely exchange! There is something about drinking tea in a beautiful tea cup that is just so soothing. I’m delighted to be able to participate! Thanks so much for hosting this exchange!

      It does add a bit of elegance to an ordinary day, I think. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!!

    Our daughter spent 3 years in England from 06 to 09 living on the economy and working for the air force at Lakenheath. She has a wonderful collection of silver teaspoons. I don’t collect either or. At age 75 I need to downsize, not add more. It sounds like a lovely idea. Love the cup u got in England.

      I have to say I was as agog at the spoons in the antique market as I was the tea cups. I’d love to see your daughter’s collection someday.

    I would love to participate!!! I love tea. I am a Michigander transplanted to Texas. I work in a thrift department store, so I’m sure I will find the perfect cup to share.
