i don't have enough posts up about coffee. i love the stuff so much, but i guess it sometimes seems so normal & boring & repetitive that i don't bother to take photos.
last month, though, i bought some cheap, new, beautiful mugs, while i was out in manitoba. and new mugs make for more interesting coffee experiences, until the novelty of it wears out anyways.
mennonite thrift stores are THE BEST. where else can you get mugs for ten cents? not at for-profit used stores like Value Village, that's for sure.
if you haven't heard of MCC (mennonite central committee), you should go check them out. if even for their thrift shops, which usually have fantastic finds for low prices. but they also do great work in responding to basic human needs, and working for peace and justice through disaster relief and sustainable community development, etc. and i have a lot of respect for that.
sometimes when we really need 'new' things for our house, my sister and i will borrow a car and drive all the way to abbotsford (50 minute drive in good traffic) just to visit the MCC there. because its that awesome. two of our beautiful couches are from there. $10 each! yeah.
and isn't this a pretty mug? i kinda really like it.
what makes your coffee drinking experience unique from day to day?
