I’ve been saving this photo for a morning when it would be really, really, really nice for someone else to do the coffee and the dishes. From Christine of Homemade in China. This is part of her Days of Gray series, though I like to think of it as day for someone to make me happy by getting me another cup. Heh.
From Christine, China. This is part of her Days of Gray series. I love how this is wintery and warm at the same time. Check out her blog at Homemade in China.
When you come to visit, this is where I will bring you. You’ll love it. Everything about it. Tower Cafe, Sacramento CA
Brewed, baked and photographed by Bernadette of Vertigo B. And here’s the story to go with them:
“When my brother and I were young (and sometimes even now), my mother would get us “boo boo presents.” It could be anything (stuffed animal, toy, stickers, etc.). The idea was that maybe you just needed a little something special to make you feel a little better.
Today my mother is having her second surgery, so this morning I made her these Lemon Love Buns (is that not the best name EVER?!). They are heart-shaped, flecked with lemon zest and covered with sparkling sugar. Perfect with a hot, dainty cup of Joe.
When my Mom gets home from the hospital, these will be waiting.”
Also from Trenton, this time road tripping in Portland OR. “This photo was taken at Tasty n’ Sons, in the up and coming Mississippi neighborhood. On the side is a delicious sweet biscuit with blueberries compote and a very thick whipped cream.”
Go ahead, click on their brunch menu, and I dare you to not swoon.
From my friend Trenton DuVal, Oakland CA. I see coffee, he sees fractal circle shapes. Check out his blog, No Hay Camino, here.
