My Love for Coffee...


My favorite Little square coffee mug...

My love for coffee goes beyond just a cup of coffee. Sometimes I purchase a certain brand of coffee simply because of its tin. Yes, if I see a purpose for it, then it comes home with me. In this case, the Beaumont Coffee tin from Aldis became my kitchen utensil holder. I change it out often... ...And then for Christmas, I have another tin that is used for the Christmas tree in the kitchen. Very simple little tree, but my all time favorite. If you see closely, it has cookie cutters, clothespins, and my boys' first spoon and fork...AND, their first jar of baby food when they graduated to solids. I kept both of their first jar of baby food, cleaned them out and placed a note inside with the date. Sounds very silly, but OH what a memory for me.
See how simple, but how meaningful...Explore the endless possibilities to decorate your home with unthinkable household items. It's never permanent, if you don't likey, you can change it. My little "International Coffee" tin is used to hold sugar and kept in my glass door cupboard above the coffee maker. Useful and decorative. Decorate with "stuff" that you enjoy and like. Make it your home.

Wish I could come have coffee with you and your unique little square mug. The OCD in me would have a very hard time with it! Hope you have a great weekend Yasnita.
