Apple Blossoms and Blue Bird of Happiness

I am always so delighted when I stumble across items that include apple blossoms,
and if they also include bluebirds, the delight becomes nearly unmanageable.
The bluebird makes me happy...
The apple blossoms make me happy...
or did being happy prompt me to purchase such an item?
Such is the case with this awesome to-go mug for my coffee.
I have, unfortunately, switched to decaf, as "full-leaded" makes everything else unmanageable.
Lots of changes with this over 50 thing, ya' know. ;-)

Oh and just as a side note and in case anyone is wondering:
It is still legal to drink coffee in Utah.
Thank goodness!

P.S. The free Apple Blossom crochet pattern can be found here at the Lion Brand site.

  3. What a delightful find! I love your coffee-to-go cup and your crocheted apple blossom just makes me dizzy with delight every time I see it! Can i justify making another batch of hooky blossom here just for the sheer joy of it? I think I may just have to! Thank you so much for the link to the pattern. E x

  10. Oh dear ... I am 50 and still swilling down gallons of black tea. Doesn't seem to be a problem yet - should I be on the lookout for something?

    What a gorgeous mug - the image looks hand-painted. Those blossoms are so darn cute, and I love the little scattered leaves. :)

  16. That is a pretty little go cup. I stopped taking my coffee to work since I am no longer having it with milk. Turns out black coffee isn't so bad after all. The crocheted blossoms are lovely. I haven't been doing any crocheting at all. One more week of school and then summer vacation begins and I will have more me time. Can't wait! Best wishes, Tammy

  19. I have been looking high and low for yarn that matches the color you used on these apple blossoms. Can you share what brand and color you used. That shade of green is very hard to find at the stores near me. Thank you in advance for responding. Heidi @ dicarlo1 dot com
