I meant to put up one (1) picture and the picture wizard went crazy and put them all up!
This is what I did this afternoon- the mugs down at the house in Chincoteague (The Sailors Rest) are HUGE! Even bigger than the mug I have in the picture immediately above with the red knitted cup cozy around it! So large that your coffee gets cold- you go into diabetic shock from the amount of hot chocolate- and the tea in the cup ends up being iced tea rather than hot.
So- I saw the smaller mugs on sale for $.50 each and I bought them.
The problem with that is that I had a small vision when I looked at them in the store. I saw them with a small anchor logo and the name of the house on them.
And I heard Jean-Luc Picard’s voice in my head saying, “Make it so.”
OK– I didn’t have any Star Trek voices in my head, but I really did flash on the logo thing and it seemed like I should do it.
So I got out my ceramic paints and did it.
They have to cure for 24 hours and then I will bake the logo onto the cups.
I am so glad I only bought a dozen.
What do you think of the cup cozy? I knitted it in wool and felted it.
I’m thinking Christmas presents with a package of Heidi’s Homemade Gourmet Hot Chocolate and a HUGE mug with a personalized touch painted on it, and of course a felted wool teacup cozy.
