Mug Love

A little blue bird has flown into my home!

Designed by Jane Sassaman, this mug is a glossy version of Strawberry Serenade from her new range Early Birds.
I love all the little details of Jane's fabrics. I keep turning my mug around in rapture. She has a knack for bringing fantastic gardens to life in such wonderful vibrant colours.The little critters, fabulous dandy dandelions, curly tendrils, leaves full of character...
...and don't those strawberries look delicious!

I even love the inside of the cup, a beautiful rich azure.

But wait, there's more!! My friend Chris knows of my red and white polka dot fetish and surprised me with this pair of espresso cups and saucers.
Aren't they fabulous and fun!!


I bet all this talk about mugs and cups has made you feel like a cuppa. Well, can I suggest you go and make one, then come back, settle in and enjoy this video of Jane talking about her Early Birds range. Look out for the giant gingham, primroses and the border print... oohh lovely!!



Cheery Cheers!

I'm back from watching the video!!! I loved how Jane would touch and smooth the fabric out with her hand, picking of little threads- she obviously loves that fabric! The poppies were my favourite! Are you telling how you came across your lovely mug?

I am so glad it arrived safe and sound and I am still a little green eyed - lol.
Love the spotty set, so cute. They would work well in my house too. So if either disappear you'll know where they are - rofl.

I have a need for more Sassaman fabric. I might even use some one day.

Its a beauty of a cup. I love the blue inside. I would certainly enjoy drinking out of it. The red and white spot cups are cute!

I love Jane's fabrics! And it is puzzling to me because I seldom see her mentioned....like all the other designers. But her fabrics are fabulous!!! Just adore the polka dot cups! Okay...going to get another cup!

Melissa P said...

Jane's mug is right at home with you! And with those red polka dot espresso cups. Just the thing to perk you up--no matter what's on the inside.

Love those cups! Thank you for the video. I really enjoyed it. I'm going to have to look for those fabrics!

smazoochie said...

This is knowledge I did NOT need! I LOVE Jane Sassaman & have something of a collection of bright birds on black fabrics (not just hers) that will now be growing. ;)
And I am on a search for that beautiful mug!

Shay said...

I love to have my coffee out of mugs like that . They make it taste twice as good.

And dots ! How cute!

I'm not going to look at any more fabric. After my crazy buying spree lately I think divorce would be on the cards if I bought any more...

Terry said...

The mug the fabric all scrumptious. Thanks for the show and tell. Do you have a project in mind? I like that Jane used her hand to show the scale of the prints.

Terry said...

Just checked out Jane's site. Congratulations on your win!!!

What a cool mug, the colors are just what I like too! Dots are always a favorite and red and white are perfect together.
I took a workshop with Jane a few years back. She is a lovely lady and very inspirational!

Melody said...

Fabulous mug and I've fallen for this fabric range. So gorgeous.

Polka dots....YES! Especially those red and white cups are darling!!! I too enjoy Jane Sassaman, although I haven't been quite sure how to use them to the best of their potential...maybe this line?!
