Anyone for coffee?

I love coffee and I love cute coffee jars like this one.  I often wash them out with intentions of doing something crafty with them, and for once I have. I washed out this little cutie and soaked off the labels. Then I gathered together some of the new Christmas supplies from the shop: My […]
