In my kitchen, I have combined vintage items with modern convenience to create two separate drink stations, one for tea and one for coffee. A fun vintage cafe cup always makes either a little more special.
I have a cabinet full of mix matched cups picked up at garage/estate sales and flea markets. It's funny that my family members have their favorites and will search them out.
In my coffee station, I have an old aluminum canister with a flour tag that I found at a junk store in Australia and smuggled home in my luggage (along with many other things). It holds my grandson's "snacks" and s'more fix-in's. When you don't have a campfire, the microwave makes great s'mores!
An old silver tray holds a Keurig...
...and a vintage glass cookie jar, which holds the K-Cups...
...and a Mason jar contains instant hot chocolate. I also have Mexican hot chocolate and Cinnamon sticks. YUMMO!
A vintage Avon hen makes a great sugar bowl and she's cute.
At Christmas, I add peppermint sticks, for hot chocolate, in an old tarnished creamer that belonged to my grandma.
Across the room, I have an electric water kettle (one of my favorite and most used gadgets) and assorted teas in vintage jars, which I absolutely love!
They all sit on a long enamel baking sheet.
This small baking pan is just the right size to hold tea bags. I couldn't have planned it more perfectly! (another smuggled item from AU)
So, there you have it! I enjoy recycling old items and giving new life to things once discarded. How about a cup of tea?
Here's a Heart Rock for your Pocket:
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:13-14
