Coffee, Tea, or Me?

You know you're living in Seattle 

when you have your own 

Coffee Bar at your house. 

:-)




When you live in an old house with a small and 

very outdated kitchen, 

you kind of have to get creative with the space you do have! 




This space kind of evolved over time...I just keep changing 

and adding to it.

We both love coffee, and I'm a big tea drinker as well. 




Oh be still my heart when I found this vintage coffee grinder at an 

antique shop here in the area. 




Pretty different from this, but oh so quick and easy! 




Who'd a thought I'd have a special place to display this 

collage I made a while back. 

Not to mention the glass table I got in Las Vegas years ago, 

and it sat in our garage because I didn't have a place for it! 





How about you?  Do you like to create special nooks where you live?


Hope your week is going well, 

Becca

What a lovely display for your coffee and teas....I had to play catch up and read the posts I missed...wow, you sure know how to whip around that crochet needle...gorgeous rug and I am glad to see the "children" love it too. Happy Wednesday to you.

If I had your knack for decorating, I would have nooks everywhere. Beautiful coffee space! I LOVE seeing how you put things together.

Oh, this is wonderful Becca! I just love this!!! I'm afraid there is no little nook here to be filled so beautifully, but you make me think... ;-)

Hey Becca! I love your coffee station. I found a similar grinder here in Kuwait and have it displayed in my kitchen. I put an old bookshelf in our kitchen to set coffee things on and such. But not so nice as the little nook you've created. I like that coffee runner you found, too. Lovely little space to store your tea and coffee. I am a coffee drinker in the morning and only drink green or herbal teas in the afternoon and evenings. Thanks for your IG comments. Have a great weekend. Tammy

everything here looks so lovely and homely and comforting. Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog I really appreciated them

such FUN, Becca... I love this!! What a great idea, and fun way to use and display your tea/coffee. I just love how you put all this together. And that table...*swoon*... It must feel like you're at a cozy B & B and want a cup of coffee! It just make having a hot beverage all the more special! When we moved into our old house here, we found an old, neglected coffee grinder. I gave it a little make over with paint to fit in with our decor as it was in bad shape, but fun to have! :o) So nice to catch up with you here. I'm slow to getting around these days due to health issue, so am online a bit less. Happy Days ((HUGS))
