coffee bar

we made a little coffee bar area off the kitchen....
I love it because it frees up so much counter space :) 

the kids think it looks like a perpetual holiday party, 
because this is what we usually do for gatherings....

I found this adorable chest-of-drawers at a 
{new to us} vintage thrift store....
it had coffee bar written all over it :)

 I love the k cups and syrups in my vintage bread box...

and I'd really been wanting a taller mug rack 
but this concrete base added some height...

please excuse the flipped image from my 
high tech computer cam

baby shower gift idea


my sweet friend had a baby shower for her daughter 
{which is so weird that my friends are becoming grandparents....} 

anywhooo, we wanted to give the parents-to-be a unique gift....
so I gathered up gift cards from some coffee places and fast food restaurants 
{I asked each place for a cup, lid, and straw then stuffed the cups 
with brown and white tissue with the gift card inside} 
 it all fit in the cutest bag ever with their other little gifts....
just something different to make life easier those first few days
running back and forth to the hospital, etc...


my friend had the cutest games, we all thought this was just a 
cute little decoration, but it was actually a memorization game....
the guest who wrote down the most items (after it was removed of course)
won the prize! super cute idea...
babies...   :) so exciting....

love is in the air.... time to spread some hugs and kisses around the house...

I strung a few pennants on the mantel...

love these little tiny wire twinkle lights (held over from Christmas)....

I covered a few books with pink scrapbook paper for a little color...

love this cute printable from Eclectically Vintage...

some heart doilies and pom pom string taped up with washi tape...

not valentine's decor....but I am in love with these winter teas from Celestial Seasonings...
