Do you take cream and sugar with your coffee?

Wouldn't it be nice to sit with a friend and share a big warm cup of coffee or tea?

To share stories, and laughter, and just keep each other company.

No rush; nowhere to be.

Just friends, and the heat of the coffee finding it's way through the mug, to warm your hands in that pleasant sort of way.

We can sip from great big mugs that fit perfectly in our hands.

Talk about nothing really, or our deepest feelings, if need be.

Quiet moments like this can be kind of rare around here.  Every minute accounted for;  so much to do.

Makes little things, like this cream and sugar pair, hold so much significance for me. 

I long to linger over coffee with a sweet friend ~ soon. 

I found these adorable little cream and sugar servers at my most recent thrift store foray, when we were searching for the perfect wire basket to use as our light fixture in the new LAUNDRY.  I just couldn't pass them up.  Not to mention they go perfectly with all my white ceramics and pottery!

They make me think of special times with special people.  :)

I hope you are able to find time to spend with your special people regularly.   That they don't live too terribly far away. 

And that life allows you some time to just linger...

{This is dedicated to you, Nikki.  Miss you terribly.}


  1. Those are the cutest sugar and creamer I have ever seen! What a lucky find! And tell Niki hello for me next time you get to have a cup of coffee with her! Love you.

  2. Cute cute cute...I love them. Thanks for stopping by Sherry, you are so sweet with your comments.

  3. Oh, you my friend, are THE BEST EVER. I can NOT wait to come up there and have that big ol' cuppa coffee and put those adorable little ceramics to good use. They really do match your decor, what a great find. I promise to message you with some dates after homework and we WILL make something work. Definately been way too long. Love you bunches.

    1. Love you bunches too! Cannot wait to spend some time with you.

  4. Wow a thrift store find, looks more like Pottery Barn!! Great Find! Love the pitcher and the set, nice touch!!

  5. They ARE cute and look very nice on your table. I know what you mean. I haven't really had a BFF in a long time. I had one but lost her to cancer years ago and haven't really found another, not that anyone could take her place. Another good friend of many years started getting angry at me every time she called. I'm not sure what was going on in her life but I had to break it off and now I just pray for her. So, yes, value your friends as you will have few really good ones in your life. I'm glad you have one.

  6. Hi Sherry - Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment. The 'Muslin Ruffle Bag' was a fun project to work on. Your sugar and cream set is so sweet. Your post is spot on about making time to linger with the special people in our lives. I have become a follower and look forward to reading your future posts.

  7. Relaxing just to read your post. I'll give up lots of things, but not that nice hot cup of coffee several times a day. Love the creamer and sugar bowl.

  8. Catching up on all your posts! I LOVE that little tiny creamer and friend! How fun for first morning coffee!


  9. Oh these are sooo cute! What a great find! I started collection white ceramics last summer, bought 1 piece at a thrift store and I was hooked. Now I'm trying not to become a hoarder with it.

    Friends and my sisters live too far away for coffee and great talks. I know the way you're feeling all too well. Hope you enjoy that great cup of coffee soon.

  10. Those are so cute...Love your creative writing skills! You make reading your blogs so fun! XOXO Aunt Janet
