it's time for Winter blends!
Not only for the blending of decor accessories as shown here,
but in the change of our hot, steaming mugs of coffee, cocoas
and teas consumed with the chill in the weather!
Once I removed all of the Christmas decor
from the built~in china cabinet,
I began to think. . .
what would "I" like to see in this space?
How will "I" use this space in 2013?
When I purchased these vintage rose etched glasses,
I knew they would be something that I wanted to view everyday!
In my mind's eye,
this narrowly built space m u s t have been built
with stemware in mind.
The upper shelf
is the only shelf
with height to accommodate a dinner plate or serving tray.
Blending silver trays, a creamy ivory serving platter
and cut crystal glass seemed the proper mix of accessories.
The lowest shelf
will accommodate a small dinner plate, dessert / salad plates
cups, saucers and a host of other serving pieces.
Sweetly mixing my need for warm,
comforting blends of drink choices,
I chose this shelf for the over~size cups and saucers
from my everyday whites.
Creamy ivory, crystal ~ be it cut or etched,
silver and white add a touch of calm during the storms of Winter.
Cranberry Orange Tea, Creme Brulee Coffee,
Double Mocha Cappuccino for "Mr. Ed"
and French Vanilla Cappuccino for me
are the blends that replace our regular Colombian Blend Coffee
during the Winter months On Crooked Creek.
Traditional Winter blends.
Streamlined to bring tranquility.
