There’s a coffee shop the next town over that hangs a sign over its door reading EspressIt. GetIt?
They have the biggest, most beautiful muffins I have ever laid my eyes on and coffee mugs the size of sombreros! After one of these mugs, you could probably make it to South of the Border and back at an energetic, Speedy Gonzalez pace.
On this day, before leaving the cafe, I made a quick ‘pit stop’ to wash off the stickiness of my fabulous chocolate-avocado muffin. As soon as I set foot in the, ah, well you know, I had to break out the iPhone. The walls just screamed “take my picture” ‘Arrangement’ was literally all around me. Tiles were meticulously placed on one wall to create a steaming hot cup of coffee. Opposite the cup, the artist arranged the name of the establishment in colorful, carefully placed glass.
Now this takes some planning.
You’ll find lots of unique expressions of “arrangement” on Jakes blog. Just click on the link.
My thanks to Jake for hosting this week’s challenge. I’d lift my mug to you – if I could! LOL
Such a pretty mosaic arrangement. And a pretty muffin. And pretty coffee. I want to go there right now.
You’ll have to wait til Friday! 🙂
I love this. But are these artworks in the ladies’ room and not in the café proper? Do the men have mosaics on their wall?
Believe it or not I have actually walked into two men’s rooms in my day, but this was a one person, unisex bathroom, so either sex got to enjoy ;-).
I’ll save my bathroom escapades for another day. Lol
Those decorations are too good to hide in the Ladies’ Room!
Or even the Everybody’s Room. (Anybody’s Room?)
But even so, what if you don’t need to pee? You’ll miss these great artworks.
Haha! There’s plenty of artwork on the wall in the cafe. 😉
Love the arrangement.
Thank you for visiting, matron 🙂
There’s an artist in the US, I wish I could remember her name, who pretty much invented the broken tile art style that’s now a major money maker in certain circles. She had a tough life in the beginning; struggling with insobriety. Now she’s a walking interior design corporation. She taught two other women who have opened up their own business copying her broken tile art under their own name.
AGAIN, I didn’t ask about the artist’s name. When will I learn. Return trip for coffee and info. 🙂
Love the mosaic arrangement. Beautiful and artistic. As for coffee…best treat there is. Have a great day my friend.
Thanks, IT. Coffee? I agree 😉
Really something else!
Fabulous, Gem! I could live in there. (well, there are worse places- I’m looking out of the window at just a little more snow)
The muffins are to die for! We hardly had any snow and I’m fine with that!
Great arrangements. The breakfast too, but very different from mine (very brown bread, tea & milk, newspaper), but there are no coffeeshops around. So lucky you!
I like the sounds of your breakfast too. 🙂
But… No coffee shops? Oh no!
Beautiful post Gemma ,I really love it my friend thanks for sharing 🙂
love the tile art ! and Yum on the muffin !
Now that’s a perfect impression of theme if I’ve ever seen one! Nice job!
