{finding a smile}



it doesn't take much to make me smile
and I found one yesterday
at my local Starbucks
when I was handed my tea in one of their adorable
Valentine cups



celebrate everylove
{now how adorable is that?}

I just could not throw this cup away.......
so it now sits on my kitchen cupboard with a little silver lid
filled with
cinnamon hearts

thanks for the smile Starbucks
xox

happy new week to you all

I think that Starbucks had you in mind when they designed this cup....it's so you !! I can see why you kept it ! Maybe you should be Starbuck's muse ! haha
Have a wonderful Sunday Koralee.....we had a large snowfall last night which stopped me going out for lunch with the family for my birthday .... boo hoo....never mind, we shall arrange it for next week. XXXX

Our nearest starbucks is an hour away so it is a REAL treat when we go there. I noticed my son kept his paper cup from the last visit and has it on his desk :) and that's just a normal cup not super cute like yours! Have a great week! xo Karen

Oh dear one, I send you hugs as you sit and work on your book! There is so much creativity oozing out of us these days, though we may feel spent with work..I know I do. But it is the dreaming and building and actual production process that is worth all the sleeplessness and a wee bit of stress. You will make it, and we will be waiting for you to come up for air and show us the fruit of your labor!!!!!!!

LOVE! Anita

Starbucks does surprise us once in the while with something special. There is a Starbucks near me that sometimes says the cutest things on the entrance door. I actually have photographed one or two of them.

Tracey Fisher said...

My coffee there is now over 5 dollars so I don't usually smile (until I have a sip) when I leave Starbucks. Well I'm grabbing the dog and heading out this morning - too cute! And maybe I'll just have a green tea. Double smile :):)

Seems like everyone
needs something to
smile about these days.
Who doesn't love LOVE?
Happy Monday, my friend!

That is so adorable, Koralee! I'm not a coffee drinker, so I know practically nothing about Starbucks...except where to find one for company. :) I'd almost go just to get one of those cups!
