Peppermint Latte Anyone???


Ahhhh, brings back thoughts of Christmas time shopping. One treat that my husband & I like when we do our shopping together, is to stop at Starbucks in the mall & get the holiday drinks. I LOVE the peppermint mocha latte, so when I saw this ornament, I knew I had to stitch it. We only splurge on a Starbucks drink once or twice per year....I usually like to get one Pumpkin Spice Latte in the fall & then our Christmas treat.......
Anyway, back to the ornament! I stitched it on a piece of Enchanted Fabrics lugana. I LOVE how this piece looks on this fabric....it just seemed perfect for it. I have a piece of pink fabric for the back, which compliments it very well.
An online friend sent me her used copy of a Dimensions House Mouse pattern called Hot Fudge. I am going to pull floss for it this afternoon. If they look right, I am going to stitch this on a piece of Mint Julep from Sassy's Fabby's. I LOVE mint choc. chip ice cream, so I thought it very appropriate to stitch hot fudge on a mint fabric.......now, if I could just TASTE the flavor combos that I have talked about in this post..Oh my!!! Makes me want to go get a cup of coffee & a bowl of ice cream..........
have a great weekend!!

Great ornament Shari and the fabric suits it really well. We love Starbucks too but there aren't so many in the UK so we don't get to sample their coffee very often!

A very cute ornament and love the fabric you have used for it.

our daughter likes to go to starbacks, a pity we don't have it here on the island, not even nearby on the other side..really have to go to the city for it.
