I have a studio where I get to work and play every day; love it! I'm one of those displaced workers you here about so I do freelance work for companies on occasion but my main priority right now is to support myself doing what I love, which is art and design.

Want Mustard with Your Coffee?

That does sound quite horrible, doesn't it?
Unless you're putting the mustard on your eggs with your morning coffee...

Actually, I am referring to the colors Mustard and Coffee. I absolutely adore a dark brown and my favorite color is yellow. Jewelry with both tones really appeal to me.

My daughter once said that brown is the color of "E". By that, she meant that it is plain, unassuming, sort of blends into the background, perhaps over-used... like the letter "E" (so plain it is often silent!). Take a look at  Coffee Beans Ahhhh.. though. It is vibrant and rich like warm chocolate cake and strong coffee!

This mug cozy looks good enough to eat!
Yummmy Goodness!!
