I’m not a real coffee lover every single day, but some of my favorite coffee beverages at Starbucks are cappuccinos, lattes, or my absolute favorite…White Chocolate mochas…oh my, and I’m not even coffee fiend, but those I love, the sweet ones! But those prices, I really don’t like those prices at Starbucks. I mean, who can afford to pay that all the time? I just won’t do it. With this economy of ours, I imagine that gourmet coffee may have to take a backseat for a lot of folks. So, what to do?? Remember this cute little cappuccino mug I found for $3 at the Goodwill in Lakeland with Kim? This little thing is so cool! If you decide you have to have one of these, I found one at an online store here. Sorry it’s not $3!
And with the addition of a sweet little vintage cinnamon shaker from an antique store. Bye-bye Starbucks! Hello to home cappuccino, made by little ole’ me, with a little help from my Italian Frasbosk cup.
Great idea!!!! Anything to save money these days. Rhoda, you have to come by and take a look at the treasures I won from your give away. I finally found time to decorate with them. I really love them, I plan to do my own givaway very soon. Thank You!!!! Nancy
Hey Rhoda..I am not much of a coffe drinker but that sounds mighty good…I wanted to thank you for your inspiration on the black furniture painting…I went right out and bought some black paint and painted a dinette set that I had for 10 yrs !!!!! lol I love it…I posted a pic of it on my blog tonight..thanks for the inspiration my friend!!!!
what a great find! Thanks for the visit!
I am not a coffee drinker but it sure looks appetizing. With this present economy any little thing we can do to cut back is helpful isn’t it? Your little cinnamon container is so cute.Sorry you missed the party. I’m thinking of ding one ofr fourth of July, so I’ll let you know if I decide to go ahead with it.

Hi Rhoda, I love your coffee cup it is so pretty. I just started to drink ice coffee at McDonald’s. I just have had the normal I will have to try the vanilla. I just wanted to thank-you for your older post about painting furniture black. I have somethings that I wanted to paint black but was not sure about anything.I always see directions on painting white but not black. I can hardley wait to get started. I found a head board and foot board in the trash, it will be just beautiful when I am done.

I have a frother EXACTLY like that!!!
I’ll come over for a cup of coffee- and bring my frother along.
It is pretty ridiculous to go to Starbucks for such things when you can make them at home. Or ever. Congratulations on figuring it out!
Oooooooo! Yummy! I love a good cup of coffee but it irks me to no end to spend nearly $4 on one cup. I think I need to go find me one of those handly little things. Thanks!
Yummy! That looks so good. I know what you mean about cutting down your visits to Starbucks… I’m a Starbucks fan myself and go there almost every day; my favorite is their Dulce Cinnamon Late… but I know I must refrain from going there so often. I should take my coffee at home, the only problem is I will miss the gaiety of meeting people, and cozying up by the window while drinking awesome coffee and enjoying people watching at the same time… oh well!
You have such a wonderful blog. The name of it suits perfectly. Love this post on the frothy milk. Your cup is the right vessel, much nicer than a styrofoam toss-away. I also enjoyed the upgrade of the corner cabinet. I never cared for those, but after seeing what you did, I’m inspired!
