Love for Numbers!

Happy Monday!  Hope everyone had a great weekend.  I saw these numbered coffee cups on the blog, www.the36thavenue.com, which I might add is filled with great ideas!  I love her blog and check in frequently...I think you should too.  I just fell in love with the idea of numbered coffee cups.  Actually....I find anything that has numbers on it is just plain 'ole fun.  I found these white mugs at the Dollar Tree and then picked up some black paint that is used for painting on glass.  I then created some number stencils out of contact paper with my cricut machine.


I lightly dabbed the paint onto the stencil, although, the paint did bleed a bit.  The paint has a thicker consistency so with the help of a needle(thx 36 avenue for the tip), it wasn't that big of a job to clean them up.  I found this cute little shelf adorned with hooks and thought these mugs would fit perfectly on it.  Where might you ask did you find that shelf?  The answer always seems to be..."garage sale".  I giggle when my hubby asks my son..."Where did you get that new truck?"  The answer is always the same....."garage sale!"  Without further adieu, here are my numbered coffee cups hanging from my "new" shelf in my kitchen.



Have a great Monday!  If you're reading.....THANK YOU!
