Bits and Bobs of ..........


It is a fact that all coffee lovers feel like my sign says...


One thing that's so great about COFFEE is the many different kinds...
the bumps blends, the grinds...
the flavors...
the deliciousness of it.

has many flavors, blends and grinds.
They are giving away to one friend of Sweet Nothings,
a bag of your choice.
Please leave comments BEFORE the 15th as that is the morning I will choose the winner. 

A good cup of coffee is great with just about any meal....

guess my favorite meal with coffee is breakfast....
or when I'm having pie or cake....
or when I'm having a ham and cheese sandwich...
or......or......or ANYtime, really.

But, I like coffee just by itself, too.

I hope, even if you aren't the winner of this generous giveaway from THE CHOSEN BEAN, that you will at least sample their fine coffees.

As you can see from their website, they have a nice variety.

In this giveaway, you can leave comments on the original GIVEAWAY PAGE
or on this one, too.

Ya know....COFFEE is just a fun thing ....


I just love them to pieces...

and they are so fun when I have friends over for
COFFEE and dessert.

Everyone always wants to know where I got them...STEINMART,
several years ago..

and, how fun the COFFEE SACKS are...

Yummy coffee creamers for those that like a little "cream".

I haven't tried either of these new ones but I LUV Baileys
so I will try them soon.

I even have an antique
that's a lot of fun to use when I am feeling nostalgic .....

(also have an electric one that is a lot faster to use...heh heh)
A very good blogging buddy, AUDREY, sent me these vintage
Fire King coffee cups a few years ago and they are one of
my favorite things in the world.
Thanks again, ya.

It's always fun to have COFFEE and treats in my
blue and white transferware.
(especially in winter in front of a roaring, beautiful fire...)

has so generously offered a lucky friend 
a package of their wonderful coffee.

I am asking you to please
 LIKE their FaceBook.

It's just good manners when they are so generous with us.
I know some say they don't do Facebook but all you have to do is click on the link I gave you above and click on LIKE at the top of their page.
Simple indeed.

It would be very nice if you would kindly place my GIVEAWAY BUTTON
on your sidebar to help spread the word of this good coffee.
It isn't mandatory, however.

Please leave a comment if you would like a chance to win a bag of YOUR CHOICE 

and, if you decide to order from this company...

  1. Good Morning BJ! You know I love me some coffee just like you do. :)

    I would love to sample these yummies.

  2. Good Morning, BJ. Yes, I would love to enter your giveaway. I love coffee. And the creamers sound delicious too. Have a happy day!

  3. well, I am one of those rare ones..... I guess this won't qualify me for any coffee give-away. hehe. But, I do not like coffee, can't stand the taste of it, never have, never will. Yes, I know, I'm odd.

  4. I SO love my coffee, I am having a cup right now:) We drink Maxwell House Master Blend, always have and really don't try anything new! Boring, right? Have a blessed day dear B.J. HUGS!

  5. What lovely photo's Bj, and who doesn't love a good cup of coffee, yes, to go with anything. I would love to try this coffee. I did "Like" their facebook page.

  6. Hi BJ! I hate to disappoint, but I don't drink coffee. I think it smells so nice when it's brewing but I can't stand the taste. Anything with 'mocha' in it almost makes me sick. But give me some tea or Diet Dr. Pepper and I'm good! :) Now I love all of your advice on my living room but I have one problem - I'm not so brave to try new things. What'll I do? :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  7. Great photos, bj....and I LOVE those rooster Fire King mugs!! Such a cute post...of course all of yours are!

  8. Yummmmmmm, it sounds and looks delicious. I love a cup in the evening with a little baileys Irish cream, a quiet spot on the patio, and just sitting there letting the day slow down. Just me and my special mug!

  9. All of your photos are great. Cute post . Have a blessed day. Madeline

  10. Oh I LOVE your blue transferware! You take the most delightful photos! Love it all!!!!

  11. I like a cup of coffee in the morning, but that's about it. Those treats look yummy tho!

  12. I really enjoy coffee anyway I can get it. However, I have a Keurig and do not use ground anymore. It still makes the best coffee.

    1. my mom has got one of them, she loves it.

  13. I was hoping I wouldn't find this was open to Canada. sigh Oh well, good luck to the winner. I do love a good cup of coffee!

  14. BJ, love the blue and white dishes. And the Baileys in the coffee sounds really yummy.

  15. Your blue and white, with matching coffee bean/ground jar, lovely, with a fire, nothing better. Good luck to the winner.

  16. I have never drank a cup of coffee in my life (or even a sip for that matter), but my husband swears by the hazelnut creamers to make his coffee perfect.

  17. I love blues, almost any shade, on dishes, walls, bottles... I am curious about the coffee named for Moses. Is it a bold blend? I love coffee, but with my health problems, I must stick to coffee with just breakfast, but it's a good way to start the day. Your header is so lovely and cheerful. Since I was at Stein Mart this past week, I know that there are no plates as fun as yours. Here's hoping I win some coffee. I'm off to see the different flavors.

  18. Don't put my name in, BJ as I don't drink coffee. Love this post though. You know I love your blue and white. I also love that stool!!!

  19. Hi BJ,
    Awww I have one cup of coffee a day and I can't wait to enjoy it.... Nice giveaway but since I do not Facebook I can't enter, but wish all who do good luck in the win. Love your photos!

  20. Great post bj which should encourage even non-coffee-drinkers to try it. I do like coffee but seldom drink it except on a very cold morning when we eat breakfast out. Glad you are still enjoying the red rooster and red checks Fire King mugs. I am so happy that I shared my set with you, because I know you really love them and use them. Thanks for the link back.

  21. I used to be a coffee first thing in the morning person . . .
    Now, rarely . . .
    Love the fragrance . . . still . . . but not the extra zap, buzz that it gives me now.
    So because I am commenting, if you draw my name, tuck it back in and choose another.
    Love your Fire King ware . . . And the blue transfer ware too . . .


Thanks so much for visiting and commenting.
