Mug Swap 2014

Who loves a mug swap?! I do! I do! Kim from A Cuppa Kim started the giant Mug Swap extravaganza several years ago and it just keeps getting bigger! She had to put a cap on it and it filled up like the same day she opened it! It was pretty crazy! This is my second year being a part of the mug swap and I plan on continuing from now until forever ๐Ÿ˜‰

So the whole idea of the mug swap is that we all get someone to secretly surprise with a mug and someone else surprises us with a mug! It is like this huge mug mail day and it is pretty incredible. I mean, who doesn’t love community and packages! I sent off some fun anthroplogie goodies to Brenda Mira and I opened a box from a wonderful lady named Lacey! She was so sweet and thoughtful! I am so glad to meet a new friend through this process –  you should totes check out her blog here!

So kind. So thoughtful. And as my dear sweet husband said so eloquently “One more mug to find a home for in the cabinet!” #mugsfordays

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MUG IN YOUR CUPBOARD?

  • That is fantastic! I'd love to get in on that mug swap action. My favorite mugs are a toss-up between a mug from Monticello that my mom got for me with a Thomas Jefferson quote on it and a big cappuccino mug from the Smithfield Ham Store in Williamsburg VA that says "Hey Y'all!" I love meaningful pieces like that because I use them every day.

  • CUTE mug!

  • My favorite mug has a cupcake on it! So I can have two of my favorite things at the same time. I use it at least once a week!

  • oh my goodness that is so cool! I would love to do something like that! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Lacey! Sweet lady! Thanks so much! I did read your note but I tossed it back in the box (which also had another box) ans so my husband just stanched it on his recycle run! I felt terrible! HAHA

    And no, I just searched my email for it and didn't see anything either! but I'll keep my eye out!

  • But for reals thank you! It was such a blessing!!!

  • This mug swap is so fun! I saw it last year and wanted to do it this year, but I always seem to miss it! I love the scripture inside the mug!

  • Sorry. Next time I'll chat you ASAP!

    How did I not know of this?! ๐Ÿ˜€ I had to go to Kim's blog immediately and subscribe so I don't miss it the next year! Awesome idea!

  • This is so fun! I wanna join in!
    The mug is beautiful!

  • Our cupboard is overflowing with mugs, we just took nearly a dozen to Goodwill and still have a bunch. This is a wonderful idea!

  • Awww how cute is that!? I love people…… they can be so nice ha ha. This is such a fun idea. I have never heard about the mug swap until now! I really want to participate next year ๐Ÿ™‚ Btw, Beth, I tried replying to you on my blog, but for some reason it didn't go through. Please don't think I ignored you! Lol

    Such a cute mug! I had to refrain from joining because we also have too many mugs. I love shopping in the kitchen section at thrift stores and picking up unique mugs. I don't think any more will fit in our cupboard!

  • For reals!!! ME too. Maybe you can start re-gifting from your overflowing cupboards!

  • Mar

    Regifting! What a great idea ๐Ÿ™‚

  • yeah!!!
