Capuccino in a Safari Set in My Newly Designed Room

 
I just rearranged this part of our family room because of a newly acquired cabinet. If you have not seen the new cabinet, please stroll down one post.
 
Anyway, it inspired me to have my tea, actually capuccino, there. I think the area is very cozy, especially once it gets colder and I can light the fireplace. It gets somewhat cooler at night now. I just hope the storm or maybe hurricane Isaac does not come harshly. Right now, it is very calm outside. I hope the saying "calm before the storm" does not hold true this time.
 

I added my favorite books in a chicken wire basket so I can just browse through them while drinking.
 I have had this set butI ever used it. Since, I am alone, I thought I could us it now. It actually includes 6 cups and saucers, the 4 sets are set aside. I have more for you to use if you will come and join me. And yes, I drank both cups of capuccino. They are very small.




Thanks for stopping by. Now let's visit the gracious hostesses and the other participants below.

Oh what fun that set is! My sister would love the animal print, that is her thing!

I wanted to check on you as I've been watching the storm closely with both my dad and my daughter in Florida. It does look to be heading your way...hopefully it will just be a little wind and rain for you!

Oh, I have cappuccino mugs and have not used them for years! I should pull them out for autumn at least.
The living room looks very cozy Christine.

A very pretty spot for a cup of coffee and good conversation.
Stay safe! Is the hurricane getting very close to where you are?

What a darling set. I'd have two cups full too if I had those adorable things. I wouldn't be able to decide which. It's all so sweet. I hope you stay out of the storm's path. We just bid it farewell as it passed our way. Thanks for stopping in at Quirky Vistas and leaving me a note. I do appreciate it. I'm your newest follower. Hope you'll stop back by and follow as well!

What a sweet set, Christine! I enjoy a cup of cappuccino myself and would love to join you. I do hope Issac stays away from your area. We here in Atlantic Canada are watching it too. Our waters have been warmer this summer so we could be in for some doozies ourselves this year. Thank you for joining me for tea and stay safe!

Blessings,
Sandi
