What is a tea cup exchange? The name pretty much says it all. You give a tea cup of your choice…and you receive a tea cup of another’s choice. Those interested in joining in will be given a name and address of another participant to send a pretty tea cup and saucier to.
What kind of tea cup should be exchanged? What you send is completely up to the sender. It should be something you would be pleased to receive. It can be vintage, reproduction or new. It can be fancy or simple and must be useable…in other words, not for decoration only.
Should anything else be included in the package? That is entirely up to the sender. A note or anything pertaining to tea would be totally appropriate and welcome.
Who can participate? Ladies who are regular visitors (and have left comments) on the blogs of “Tea on Tuesday” participants are eligible to take part in this exchange. My apology to anyone who is not known through one of the following blogs. Art In Red Wagons, Bitze, Artfully Ooglebloops, Christen’s Creations and of course, this blog. (Additional Tea on Tuesday blogs may be added as they become known to me.) This is to insure those who sign up will follow through on their commitment to exchange. “It is more blessed to give than to receive”, but fair is fair, too. If this exchange works out well, it will likely lead to another one at a later date…so stop lurking and leave a comment when you visit.
If you are interested in participating leave a comment on this post. All names must be in by October 15th. A name will be sent to each participant asap after the closing date. Packages should be in the mail no later than November 1st.
Please let me know how you heard about the exchange. You will be contacted by the email address you supply with further instructions.

Until next time…
