This is the "coffee station" in our kitchen. It is the first chore or duty of the day. Make the coffee! Hubs and I are both coffee drinkers, but I am a major connoisseur. Last year I splurged and purchased a big expensive Cuisinart 14 cup coffee maker. I thought it would be the end all, be all of coffee pots. Sad to say, I was mistaken. It barely lasted a year and had to be replaced a couple of weeks ago. My coffee maker before that was a Krupps and lasted about 8 years. I'm sure you can understand my disappointment. So this time... we went low end. Just a little Black and Decker. It, actually, makes very good coffee. I thought the carafe style pot would be handy for serving at a table or on a buffet. And it truly does keep the coffee warm without continuing to cook it on the burner. Which brings you to a green bonus....It is energy efficient. The only complaint that I have is that it only makes 8 cups. But perhaps I could consider drinking less coffee? Uh...probably not!
All that to say... I'm happy with the new coffee maker. YEAH! :)
See the cute little lamp? Yup... new! I can't help it. It was on sale. Gooseberries... 80% off.
This little basket.... cut glass. It is getting that purple-ish cast that old glass gets. This is the best Goodwill find that I ever got. It was $1.99. It is really almost tiny, about 7 inches tall. I love it. I saw one in an antique store for $19.00.
Well... We are at the week end!
I will be working on office stuff. No fun what-so-ever! I think next weekend will be my clean-house, play-house weekend.....
