Coffee Mugs . . . How many do you have?

Erv and I are muggaholics. Yep. That's us! Whenever we're out at Starbucks, visiting somewhere out of town, stopping in at a local gift shop, at the airport, etc., etc., we look at coffee mugs. We have a multitude of mugs for almost every holiday. We can justify almost any mug purchase, too. We have so many Christmas mugs that we have to clear out our every-day mugs and pack them away during the holiday season. Next time you're in a store and you see a mug you like, buy it and enjoy it. It is one of our simple life's pleasures!

Braided Rag Rug Tutorial on Moda Bake Shop

I mentioned earlier last year that I wanted to take a class on learning to make braided rag rugs. I never took the class because I had waaaay too much to do at the time. Well, I came across a tutorial written by Vanessa of V & Co. on the Moda Bake Shop blog and it looks so easy to make - includes some great photos, too!

Click on the banner and be sure to let me know if you decide to make one of these rugs. I'd love to see how yours turns out!
