Christmas Cup ~I'm a Copy Cat

  A couple years ago I was at one of my favorite bloggers site, Polly -Make Mine Beautiful blog.  I admire her style and creativity more than I can say.  Of course you'll see that in a moment because I copied Her..  In her post she wrote of having seen a similar item in a magazine but I cant remember which one and I'm not sure she told but it stuck in her mind and so she made her version of it and now I made my Holiday version of hers.
  Did ya get all that?? lol   I havent seen her post for awhile and the last I heard she was busy moving. I sure wish she was here so I could thank her so much for Always being such a creative inspiration and most especially this time..  This is my version of a decorated cup. The fork holding the card..
Here is the one Polly made for her fall table a couple years ago, I loved it and have hoped to give it a try and now I have.

  I hope I have done Polly proud and I want to thank her one more time..
Thanks so much for coming to visit and see my holiday copy cat..
Many thanks to deb for having this party so we could show off our creations.

  1. Oh I LOVE this!! I love the whole idea of it, and what a wonderful way to set the table with some serious Christmas spirit (or anytime). I just have to copy this sometime. I am pinning it so I know who to give credit when I do.

    Really, I love this.

    I adore this idea. I have a small mixing bowl I fill every year but have not thought of adding a spoon and fork! Too cute!

  15. Evening Sonny,
    I love your Christmas cup, so darling and so delightfully christmasy! Beautiful, loved Pollys too. Like how she bejeweled her silverware, great idea! but yours is bejeweled enough with all the lovely christmas balls and poinsettias. what a neat idea for a ladies luncheon. Cause you could make one for each place and they could take it home with them.
    Very very nice...........

    Hope you are doing well hon,
    and hope your leg is doing much better as well.

    Love and Blessings, Nellie

  31. Hey there lady! I haven't fallen off the face of the earth totally, I'm just hiding behind a rock temporarily. What a surprise to open my reader tonight and see this. I love your version. I actually made mine to sell in my shop. I think I made about 80 of those things! Using it in a place card type setting is brilliant.

    Here's the link to my post about these.

    Thanks for the copycat. I'm truly flattered. You never know what someone is inspired to do when you post your own stuff. I remember copycatting your lime green and black candles last year!
