Patchwork Cup

So . . . I keep seeing cute things to send to school with Harleigh. Hafta be careful though because while she's been forced to live the girly world of Chateau Gahan for the past 18 years, her dorm room is all hers and ALL her taste, which happens to be a little different than mine.

So my tactic is to buy something and then set it out on the counter. If she reacts "that's cute, Mom!" then I offer it up to her. In the case of this small patchwork mug, I got a reaction that means it's being packed up and heading to Statesboro!

I really like the way you set it on the counter and let her react.
Would she let you take pictures?

Now that's a unique way to decide whether it is going or staying. Very cute by the way. Jackie

Oh! That is a good idea. :) It IS hard to remember that they have their own tastes. Thank you for the advice. I will remember it when my little birdie leaves my nest in four years. :)
