This fabulous Pink & Grey Junkie Bunkie is from a collection called the Mad Hatters Tea Party, I love multi media cards and the fabric name of Tidings of Joy made it perfect for our Winter Hop giveaway.

Whether you drink alone or with a friend, t'is the perfect time of year for a cup of tea.

The mystic and aura of that cup of tea enchants.

Coffee Love is True Love

The Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is happening NOW!!

We love fall, the leaves are turning colors, we love that our little students are back in school, we love having a few quiet moments before the holidays are in Full Overdrive!  But ....

Coffee Love is a lot like fall, first you can smell the change in the air, it gives you a nice warm feeling knowing that cozy fires and snuggie visits with the ones you love are not too far away. It feels like a little personal holiday when you notice that your favorite barista has decorated your coffee, just for you. That first sip of Pumpkin Spice Coffee and all is right in your world.  Get comfy, grab your favorite coffee, tea or cocoa and Come Hop with us and see how others share their coffee love!

I'm sharing my love for the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop by giving away a Junkie Bunkie and matching Misti Zip Bag made in this fabulous coffee fabric.

Please remember... Coffee is Simply Charming Everyday!
Hugs, Denise
