April Showers Mug Rug Blog Hop!!






I'm so glad I got to be apart of this super fun blog hop!! Thanks again to Madame Samm for inspiring us all to create!! Erin from Sew at Home Mummy is hosting all the creative fun!!

I wanted to create some spring inspired Mug Rugs. I loved this fabric with these beautifully colored floral seed packets.

I used a few pieces of my Homer Laughlin china that I was given after my fathers passing. It was given to my grandmother by my grandfathers parents at the birth of my father in 1947. I love the pretty pink flower pattern. My mother told me my grandmother had a pink decorated kitchen accessories and all. I even have matching table lamps. I wish I could have seen that!








Here are all of the other fun creative ladies posting today!! Go see all of their creations!!
