I Love my Coffee...

How about you!  Do you love your coffee or tea!
Over at City Crafter Challenge Blog this week that is what it is all about..

The wonderful and creative Kirsty is our host again and this week she is
taking us on a little trip to Seattle..  Famous for those hot drink on a rainy day!

So for the Challenge this week you need to create something to do with coffee
or tea..  You can go over to CCCB to get all the details.

I just love this stamp he looks so cozy in that cup..

Of course I had fun with the sewing and adding little embellishments.

If you play along you just might have a chance to win a little something from
Our sponsor this week!

So hop on over to the City Crafter Blog and check out what the
other ladies have come up with.  You won't be disappointed..


I had a pretty crazy week last week..  Work was a little more challenging
than usual and then we celebrated Thanksgiving with my family on Saturday!
And then we left Saturday evening for our annual trip to Santa Barbara!

But now all that craziness is behind me for a little while.
Because I am sitting here at the Ocean right now enjoying my life to the fullest!

These guys are alot of fun to watch! 
They are just staring off into the big ocean.. I wonder what
they are thinking?

We did a little shopping yesterday afternoon in downtown Ventura!
What a cool little town!  I can't believe we have drove right passed here
for over 9 years with out even stopping.  Well that won't happen any more.

I got this photo of some vintage cameras at a really fun little antique shop!

To top off the perfect day, we had a perfect sunset!
We sat and had a glass of wine while watching the sun dip
down into the Ocean!  It was so Beautiful!

Well friends I am off and I hope I get a chance to visit everyone this
week..  I will be back later in the week with more photo's.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I really do appreciate all the sweet comments!

Hugs, Linda

I love my tea ~ but I like coffee if it has the fancy creams! :) The little mouse in the cup is adorable. How wonderful to spend time at the Ocean ~ I often wish I lived somewhere more exciting then the flat prairies. Perhaps when I retire... :)

Have a good week Linda!
