I am in love with a new mug. See the two aqua mugs there with the red ones?
I finally got out and got some much needed groceries last week. I like to grocery shop in Target because it's a fairly small area to cover.
And right before the groceries, I spotted these mugs. I don't even know what other colors there were, because my eyes immediately zoned in on these two aqua ones. Which is another color I'm looking to incorporate into my boho look.
I do love the Anthopologie mugs I see online. But I can't bring myself (nor can I afford) to pay that much for one mug. These were $1.99. In the basket the two went.
Even better, when I tried it out the first morning, I found that it fit my hand perfectly. Isn't it wonderful when you find a mug that just seems to be molded exactly for your hand to hold it?
While I waited for my coffee to brew this morning, I heard the birds singing out on the patio, so I grabbed my camera. Which I keep close to the patio door for just such an occasion.
I had to adjust the light, which bleached his/her colors out a bit. But I think it is a house finch. The sky was such a bright cerulean blue that the bird showed up dark against it.
Then my coffee was ready, and I doctored it up with just what I like. A bit of this and that. My friend Kay drinks hers black. I don't think I could handle that at all. I have to have a little sugar and creamer.
Meanwhile, Abi was just a few feet away, begging for her picture to be taken. And she almost got that one ear up, so I grabbed the camera again.
So many of you said you liked the old brown trunk painted white, but you should see this poor dinged and battered up trunk close up. Ah, but I look past the imperfections.
It's ready to fall apart. So I shall have to be careful with it.
Another thing that gratifies me on my way to fix coffee is the light shining through the blinds on my peachy bookcase. This color is very pleasing to the eye, and it makes me smile.
And then there are the plants. They purify the air and look so stunning while doing so. And they make me smile as well.
(By the way, the extra Boho quilt looks great on the bed. It came in the other day. A full/queen quilt with two matching zippered shams for $66. A great buy! And it will be the starting point to my Boho look in the bedroom.)
I'm resting up, because I've got to go around the corner soon to buy more paint and get to perking things up with my paint brush!
