This was my first time joining all the fun over at Kim's annual mug swap! You can read all about it HERE. Such a wonderful idea and something that fits so well within my love-language of simple gifts. It's much more fun to give than receive in my book, and I LOVED carefully choosing a sweet little mug and gift to brighten my partner's day and hopefully be a blessing to them! The benefit of this swap is that I recieved a lovely gift as well!
My assignment was Miss Amy over at Grey Ceiling. She is such a beautiful writer and I love how she describes herself in her blog... someone I would just LOVE to be friends with in "real life" as well as online. She's genuine--something I most admire in a friend! Her faith in God is so evident and so very encouraging. I chose an adorable owl mug from my favorite place, Anthropologie. I also wanted to add THIS amazing print by one of my very favorite's, Lesley. Of course, I had to add a little bunting--since I'm obsessed and love to whip it up! I packaged it all up, put some washi tape on the box, and off went the happy mail to the blessed USPS!
After stalking my mailbox for days, I was so very excited to see my brightly colored package in the mailbox one afternoon. This Mama was having a rough day too, so a little happy mail was just what I needed! I opened up the box to find a pretty HAND-painted mug by Miss Elizabeth, and a sweet card too. Her lovely shop is HERE, and is full of adorable goodies!
Thank you Miss Kim for hosting such a fun swap! I'm linking up!
