Where In The World Is ???? Contest and Giveaway


 Hello friends! I hope you're ready for some fun. You've heard of the Traveling Totes right? If not, here is how the Traveling Tote series began, read about it HERE, and HERE is the first post. Our next traveling tote post is on March 1st and we have a great giveaway to offer so mark your calendar. 
We're doing something different for this post. Where in the world is my MacKenzie-Childs mug? I travel with my hearty and handy handsome Courtly Check enamel mug which is perfect for a draught of hot chocolate or calming tea. Dressed up and styled out, it’s black and white. Very classy—with a kick. Joe is usually the photographer, but I have asked others to take my picture. Hope you enjoy the mug photos and maybe you can guess where I was. 

Do you have any trips planned for 2019? I enjoy living vicariously through others. 




Feel free to guess where I was in the photos. We are now buried in snow, and I love looking back to these warmer days sipping coffee with my dearly beloved. We are closer to spring now than we were in September right? I have a lovely sunflower towel to give away, and all you need to do is leave a comment. I will pick a winner on February 14th. 
Feel free to visit any of the traveling tote blogs listed below. They would love that.

  2. What a terrifically fun post, Debbie. I am envious of all my tribe's travels while I am buried beneath boxes. Such a very clever idea, traveling with the mug. No matter where you go, the MKC is recognizably chic!

  3. Deb, You are definitely a model for MacKenzie-Childs! I always love your photos, whether they are in Italy, maybe Venice and Milan or maybe your camp house! It's funny how our cups make everything taste so good! Hugs sweet friend.

  13. I think that you are going to be the spark plug for a new trend..."Mug Toting Travelers"! Your pictures are lovely. Maybe our TTT group needs a Courtly Check uniform...well...maybe not. Your black and white checks work perfectly though. Thanks for taking us on such a delicious adventure. Cherry Kay

  14. My fist guess is Venice! But what I love most aside from your travels is how you're perfectly coordinated (sartorially speaking) with your mug. I love your photos!
