coffee love


There’s this pretty awesome coffee shop that opened next door to my house a few months ago.  A couple weeks ago I decoupaged a card file box with coffee cups and their logo and filled it with alphabetical dividers.  I gave it to them explaining that in Seattle coffee shops had one to keep patrons ‘buy 10 get one free” cards, so people didn’t have to remember to bring them every time.  They were pleased.  But who knew it would be so popular!?! I placed little foam wedges in the back to keep the bards upright when there weren’t very many in there, but alas, it’s jammed full after two weeks.  It looks like they need a second one to break up the alphabet! This morning when I was in there the owner said to me, “I guess Seattle knows something about coffee, huh?”  (He was joking.)   I love my neighborhood.

It is a gorgeous, sunny fall day here.  Ladybug and I are taking CT to the flea market to help him find art for his house.  And tomorrow is closet swap day.  Away go the light summer dresses and little shorts, out come the sweaters, cords and boots.  I’m still ambivalent about this.  I don’t know why, but fall just seems oddly lonely this year.

  1. Baby, Fall is *always* lonely. But I’m learning to enjoy it anyway. 🙂

    I love you, btw.

  2. Nice work on the coffee cards thing – I always forget my “frequent purchase” cards no matter what the store. Hard to keep up with…

    Hope you’re well.
