My Mug Shot

Okay people, not that mug shot. Hopefully I will never get one of those!!

I think I may have mentioned before that I love coffee and in fact my kitchen and family room are filled with coffee decor. So anyway, Shalee over at Shalee's Diner has tagged me for this meme. Here are a few pictures of my favorites mugs and my coffee decor...

Somehow this is posting funny but the one above is my favorite mug.
It doesn't match anything else I own but it's big and holds lots of coffee and creamer!!
I've had it for about 6 & 1/2 years now and don't think I'll ever get rid of it!!

This mug has been in my family since I was a little girl.
The funny thing is, I can actually do that!!
Maybe someday I'll post a pic of that : )

I keep my coffee filters in this little box

Hubby got me this picture for Christmas.
The candles were from Mom.

Above my kitchen cabinets.
If you zoom in you can see I'm using a soda bottle behind that one tray to prop it up.
I'm trying to figure out what else would work but so far I haven't. Ooops : )

These mugs were given to me by my good friend Julie
She brought them back all the way from England!!

These are the pictures that started the whole thing.
I got them on clearance at Mervyn's for about $5 each.

These are some little mugs I got on clearance at Ikea for .25 each.
They match my curtains and I couldn't resist!!
Also, that's my coffee maker, I love it!!

This is the centerpiece on my kitchen table.
Three candles surrounded by coffee beans.

My coffee plates on a cute little plate rack from Mom

This is above my sliding glass door.
Is There Life Before Coffee??

Yep, even a coffee rug!
My Grandma gave me coffee rugs as a house warming gift.

I'm now tagging Julie, Theresa, Tina and Sherry...
Get out there and show us your mug shots!!

A mug, woman! Just a mug! But really love the coffee decor because I agree: One must have coffee in order to survive the morning.

And I love that sign above the door. I gotta get me one of those!

Love the coffee shots...your kitchen looks darling! And, I have an idea for your soda popped up picture. Get one of those picture holders that sit on your tabletop. I'll try to explain it because I don't know the true name. But I have my RR recipe book setting on one. It's Y shaped and the two legs spread out as far as you need them and then the it has a support going up the back to hold the object upright. If you don't know what I'm talking about let me know and I'll send you a pic. It would look cute with your decor.

Oh, and thanks for the tag, I'm honored! Will post soon! T-Lo

Ok, for some reason I haven't been able to see your pictures in quite awhile. Not sure why. But I know what your kitchen looks like and it's beyond awesome. I'll post my mug shot soon.

Hi Stacey~
Your pictures are so funny! You are for sure a coffee addict. I cannot at all relate....I'm all over the diet cherry coke, though. But your kitchen is so cute!

Addie said...

The walls in my kitchen look very similar in color to yours. I've thought about doing a coffe decor, but wasn't sure. Yours is really cute ... tastefully done. Not cheezy at all, I like it.

I'll give you $25 for all of it. (And that includes the shipping!) ;-)

And I think we all deserve a pic of you doing that thing with your tongue and nose. No fair teasing us!

Your pictures are fun!

Stacey said...

Shalee, thanks for the tag. It was a fun meme!!

T, thanks for the tip for the tray about the cabinets. I'll give that a try.

Julie, what a compliment coming from you, the queen of home decor!!

Terri, thanks for stopping by. I love that picture of your girls!!

Addie, maybe when I change my theme I'll ship it all to you but for now I think I better keep it : )-

Mary, thanks for stopping by. I wasn't sure you ever got out with 8 kids : )

Sheri said...

I must say! Your kitchen is exactly how I plan to finish decorating mine! Awesome! Glad to have a visual.

janice said...

I love your kitchen decor. And the face mug is a riot.

I sure wish I like coffee - I could use the caffeine.:)

This post is too cute! I'm not technically supposed to drink coffee, but I have to sneak some every now and then. I love it. Why couldn't I be like my sister (who can have coffee ANY TIME SHE WANTS) and hate it?
Oh well! By the way, thanks for stopping by on my birthday! Ya'll are too nice!
