Welcome to Keeping Christmas, November!
Last night some of my favorite peeps celebrated our annual Favorite Things
dinner and gift exchange. We gathered at one of the friends' homes,
practiced safe distancing and shared gifts that are special to us.
This year one of my favorite things is the new set by the Greetery, Hug in a Mug.
Betsy thought of everything when she composed this sweet cup, saucer and even
cookies for these gems.
Decorating the paper forms is up to the creator. I wanted to come as close
to a set of Christmas dishes I have, and that my friends would recognize.
The cup has a band of green at the top, which I drew on with a copic marker.
The rest of the decoration are stamps included in the set. And how perfect is
the cup's sentiment, 'Just a few of favorite things... Coffee, Christmas & You'.
Inside, 10 little caffe latte See's candies fit perfectly within the cup.
Couldn't resist the cookie set, decorated with German Glass Glitter!
The detailing on the top includes steam that becomes the handle to
open the cup.
They're really quite sturdy, and I enjoyed the happy responses from each of
my favorite gals as they carefully examined their tiny treasures!
Definitely more blessed to give than to receive, but honestly though, how
blessed to receive another's joys!
