Red Mugs, sugar bowl and coffee pot

The color for July over at SoScrappy is RED and I love red. Look at this little chef, waiting to make you a cake as fast as she can!
Along with little chef, there are two tall mugs, a sugar bowl and a teeny little coffee pot, just enough for two small cups. Certainly not the tall mugs! I wonder if I'll call it a covered creamer...

Look who was dancing around the scrap bin!

Me!

(Yep, I'm that skinny)

(I DO dance)

A little fact:  my husband and I always drink our morning coffee out of matching mugs. When we purchase mugs we buy two so we can do just that.

So here is mine, and here is his...



Check out the little Sun Bonnet Sue

I almost can't bear the cuteness!

Lying, yes I can because I like cute, there I said it.
I like vintage, I like clever, I like cute.

If ONLY I could find an actual sugar bowl like this.





Here is the coffee pot. I've been saving that scrap for years as I adore it, and in an effort to use my fabrics I allowed myself to cut it up.

It reminds me a bit of the metal campfire coffee pots.

It seems to need something on the top of the lid however... what do you think of these...




you know how much I love a cow. I also enjoy a spiral and gold.
I can't decide! I should wait til they are all pieced into a top as things change.... but not my love of scraps!

  6. Those little lids are all adorable. What would you like? Elegant? Country? Folksy? They all work for a different look. The mugs are so cute. Dancing diva and mischievous cat in the hat. Cute couple.

  15. LOOOVVVE these! You use your scraps in such a clever way!
    I like the gold spiral but agree that it might be nice to see this wonder put together first, before adding all the embellishment.
    Hope you had a nice 4th!

  19. What fun coffee service! I'd go for something blue as the knob on the coffee pot, but like others, I'd wait for the final layout.
