Mixing it Up

I came across this little metal sign in an antique/treasure shop last week. Without a doubt, it is not old, just meant to look that way.



I was attracted to it on several levels. The colors are great in my kitchen, I love my coffee, which I often have with the morning paper (note the "newsprint" of the sign's cup), and it has the word "Paris" on it. So, it came home with me. I knew I'd use it in the kitchen, but did not have a specific location in mind. After playing with it in several spots, it ended up in this little corner.



That prompted a move of all the small kitchen appliances since this is where the food processor and mixer sat before the sign went up. Because the coffee maker got moved next to the sign (duh...) that meant the cabinet above had to be cleaned out, so the cups and saucers, mugs, coffee and filters could be nearby.

Does this happen to you?

You get one new thing and it turns your whole room around?

Change is good...sometimes.

Do I do that? I am the queen of moving things around when something new comes home. I love that sign and it looks great in that spot.

I absolutely do that too! And I have that exact same sign above my coffee maker on my coffee bar (actually a red buffet I bought for $149 at JCPenney online a few years ago and put together.)

I love your sign - and yes, that happens to me all the time. It's the worst at my desk - moving stuff instead of working. But it gets me in the kitchen sometimes, too!

Great sign! I'd need one for tea. And my problem is sometimes I just move the piles around instead of getting rid of them!
