Coffee Talk

CONGRATS to Susan in Wylie TX for winning the Crafty Secrets blog candy!

As soon as I found this little frame at the Target dollar spot, I knew exactly what I was going to do with it. The Crafty Secrets "Coffee & Tea" set chickie's mug shots just HAD to be on there! It just screams 50's diner to me!

I stamped the girls with Ranger black ink, and colored in their clothing with Stampin up markers. The stripes on their clothing are easy to color in with plain old marker; no aquapen required! The rick-rack is vintage. DID I MENTION THAT THIS IS MY OFFICIAL FAVORITE SET NOW!

I also wanted to show you this GREAT coffee idea from the Picket Fence Gal's sale. They took coffee cups, drilled a hole in them and put them on a metal rod. You can put birdseed in them and put them in your garden for the sweet little birdies to eat out of! HOW CUTE IS THAT? THEY SIT ON THE EDGE OF THE TEACUP!

I bet if you guys have husbands with 'skillz', they can probably make these for you with old cracked, chipped teacups or coffee cups! If you have them make one for you, PLEASE email me photos so I can post it here!

(I need to find a husband with skillz!) Hmm, it might just be cheaper to buy one of these from the Picket Fence girls, no?


Have a great weekend, everyone!

I thought you were going to say they make great citronella candle holders, but the bird feeders are even cuter.
