Coffee Cup & Coaster Challenge :)

I came across this challenge on AnneS's blog this afternoon and apparently it is a popular challenge at the moment - I've seen it on a few other blogs this afternoon too. I thought I'd join in on the fun :) My challenge is a little different though in that I don't generally drink coffee - I'm more of a tea person ... English Breakfast or Green Tea with Lemon usually :)

Anyway, here are my mugs! The one on the left I use mostly for my green tea or if I don't have much time (which is usually in the mornings before the school run!). The coaster it is sitting on is from Ikea - there wasn't much of a choice when we purchased those! The mug on the right is from a set of six. The design is called "Kelim Camel" by a Dubai-based artist called Susan Walpole. I quite like camels and given that we are living in the Middle East thought these were rather appropriate :) The red coaster is again from Ikea :) They had a bit more of a choice this time! They went well with the other groovy desk accessories I'd bought ! They all went perfectly with my red office chair :) You see, when I set up my corner of the study the only chair that I liked was red so I just used that the theme for my accessorising!

Okay, now onto to stitching :) I haven't had as much time on Shimmer as I'd like the past couple of days - life has a habit of getting in the way sometimes! Tonight holds promise though and of course tomorrow also promises to be a quiet day so I should get a heap more done then :)

That's all from me for now ... need to do the taxi-mum thing and drop Caitlin's friend home!
