Another Hillcrest Cottage Mugging

An unexpected mugging occurred on Saturday as we were enjoying an out-of-town flea market outing. My husband came face-to-face with this treasure:

Four Dollars!!!

The "Coffee Hound" mug collection welcomes its newest member:

Another Hillcrest Cottage Update:
I am slowly continuing my kitchen transformation. Pay no attention to the cabinet's paint job because the red cabinets are going ochre... I think.

I decided to join the open cabinet revolution. Not having solid white dishes kept me from doing this for a long time. I know I will really like this when the cabinets (inside and out) get their fresh, new painting.


  1. Congrats on the mugging!

    I'd be afraid to go the open cabinet route. It sounds like there would be more dusting to do!

  2. Oh my goodness! So cute! Both the cabinets AND the mug!

  3. Ummm, not going to open cabs either. That would be too embarrassing.

    Love the mugs.

  4. It was so lovely of you to pop over from Shelly's blog. Welcome.

    Our family is the beverage family ~ we love mugs and these are so fun. Also love your red dishes.

    Happy kitchen makeover.


  5. Thanks for the kind comments at my blog earlier... I'm glad you enjoyed the felting video! I'd love to see what you come up with if you try it! Needle felting is so much fun... and very relaxing. :o) Have a blessed weekend!
