Wednesday In Japan. . . Espresso

One of the smaller projects going on at my home right now,
was buliding some shelves  in the wall over the coffee/espresso machine.
.
Ha ! you ask,  how does this relate to Japan you ask ?
Well, it seems all my espresso cups are from Japan.
Sneaky me right ?
hahahhahahahaha
Over the years every time I go to Japan I buy a Totoro cup. 
But the next trip I will just buy the last few cups to complete
 "The Months of Tororo" set.

I remember one trip, I came back with a suitcase full of dishes. 
Only one small soy dish was broke !
.
The only exception are the two red cups on the bottom left that are from a shop in Tucson.
.
 .

 .

 I am still playing around which cups would go where.
Now I can see them better every day.
.

Here is your mid week pretty.
Every two day son goes out to pick some Tangelos from the tree. We are trying to finish up the fruit as the tree is covered with blooms.
.
 .

 I just love the way he always has a few leaves on the fruit.
So pretty.
.
  And here is my very own rainbow.

 .

awwwww a baby rainbow !

coffee. . . parsnip

  5. I love tangelos and the cup shelf is a fabulous idea. Seems we all have collections in drawers we never get to see.

  6. My wife has quite a fetish for crockery. Her greatest passion is cafe au lait bowls. Probably best I not mention the Totoro mugs to her...

    1. Just pick out which cup you want it in.
      For years I drank double espresso with cold (not steamed) soy milk so good.
