Coffee tastes extra special . . .


when it's in a beautiful cup. Don't you think so too? And it looks even nicer on the the linen piece that's for sale in my etsy shop. I've had my eye on a set of Franciscan cups and saucers in the Denmark pattern (or onion pattern as Lisa tells me it's also called) along with a set of salad plates at the Pickled Hutch for a while now. I really wanted the plates too, but someone bought those long ago. The sets were always a little out of my price range though, but because of Lisa's big sale, I was able to buy them. I went to the shop about a week ago and left thinking of them all night, having terrible visions of someone else scooping them up at such a deal of a price. I was proud of myself for delaying gratification and not buying them right away, but at 50% off, how could I resist after wanting them for so long? I love them sooooo much. The delicate floral blue and white pattern warms my little heart. So does that coffee early in the morning. I'm not so good at making froth with our espresso machine. I think real baristas call that froth I made "dish soap" froth. Andrew is better at making the milk froth nicely, but he's asleep right now. Still, in this cup, it doesn't really matter.

I love EVERYTHING in this photo!! Yes you are so very right, I bought all of the books at P'tree Peddlers in the new section. He had a big book booth at the end? Well, he's apparently moving out and has hardbacks for .50 and paperbacks for .25! I had to restrain myself ~ Hope you, Lois and Andrew are doing wonderful!! xxoo, Dawn
