Morning Coffee and Afternoon Tea Station

I have collected coffee cups and mugs for many years!    The other day I finally admitted to myself that my collection was out of control and it was time to do "as we say here in Eastern New Mexico"....."cull the herd "!!! 

I only kept the coffee cups that had sentimental value and a few of my favorites.....

I filled my French drying rack and let the rest of them go!    I gave some of them to friends.  donated some and sent a few to the auction.

I was left with a pretty big cupboard that was completely empty ......

It filled up pretty quick with only what we needed to have " Morning Coffee and Afternoon Tea"    K cups.....tea pots for hot tea......Pitchers and glasses for iced tea..... 

The small Morning Coffee cupboard is filled with only the cups H and I use every day..... 

We like simple tall white ceramic mugs so a few is all we need! 

Morning Coffee.....Afternoon Tea....what's next??? 

  It's time for a pitcher of Mojito's on the porch!


  1. What a fun post! An empty cupboard, what's that - HA! Love that you filled it with pretty and useful things. Can't wait to see what you come up with next! Cheers!

  2. Your empty cupboard is so refreshing to see. I need to clean out a cabinet full of unused mugs as well. Or find a way to repurpose a few of them. Thanks for sharing with us every week. This post will be a feature this week to inspire others to create a charming coffee space of their own. #HomeMattersParty

  3. This is such a pretty spot in your kitchen Penny.
