I'll tell you what, this has been one thrilling culinary week; I can hardly contain my excitement. What with the news of the “Great Chefs” series of postage stamps about to be released, and now this recent discovery at a local shop that has set the wheels turning in my brain, I can tell you. This, in my opinion, is nothing short of brilliant! Oh, that I would have had the outrageous amount of cash in my pocket to treat myself to this candle holder cum coffee station from one of the toniest shops in the area. But, alas, I didn't, so the search is on (and, really, isn't the most fun of anything in the hunt?) for a pillar candle holder to turn into a clever coffee station.
The photos are not great because it was really dark in the shop, and I was trying to be discreet. Hopefully, though, you’ll get the idea and love it as much as I do.
I am an absolute fiend for coffee (“The best part of waking up...” and all that.), and I love the whole idea of a coffee station. I've tried creating one a number of times, but was never particularly pleased with the outcome. This one really sends me. I love the dual purposing of things, as has been done here, and that there are just so many options. Think of how much fun it would be to change ingredients for the holidays -- Warm spices for the fall, cocoa and peppermint for the winter, maybe some pastel sprinkles or marshmallows for the spring. The choices are endless. Which ingredients would you choose? Do you have a coffee station in your home? Tell me about it, and I want details!
