next, please

Hey there, we’ll we’ve had our caffeinated celebration after hitting 1000 cups of coffee, then a week of detox, then a quick flurry when Coffee|Served Daily was featured on the WordPress homepage, Freshly Pressed (thanks everyone for your wonderful comments, proof that coffee is loved by many). Now it’s time to transition to something new.

Introducing…Caffeinated|By Design. I’ll still be enjoying my coffee (and your coffee too, if you’d like to send me your lovely coffee photos). This new project will attempt to connect the dots between coffee and design, a caffeinated visual vacation so to speak. I’m combining coffee, design and art…and I suspect cafes, books, typography, signage, bicycles, painted elephants (!), gasp-worthy nature, and general happy making. It’s all connected to coffee, right? There’s only one way to find out…

By the way, the image above is by one of my favorite artists,  Edward Hopper. Automat, 1927, Des Moines Art Center, Iowa. She’s already over at the new blog, along with a few friends. Hope to see you there.

the countdown to 1000

Did you notice? That last coffee cup was number 950. Which means we’re almost done…and you have 50 more chances to join the caffeinated fun. I’m guessing we’re three weeks out, so send coffee soon!

868. clay cup three

Steve’s cup. You know, not every man would sit with his wife (on a Saturday night) and make tiny clay coffee cups. A small disclaimer, we were watching Tivo’d Portlandia episodes, so we could at least feel ironic. Steve made three beauties that would have thrilled Kate when she was five and into fairy parties (or was that me?). However, only one of them stands up…this one is about 3/4 of an inch tall.

867. clay cup two

Coffee with thumbprint, polymer clay. About 1 1/2 inches tall. Looks like a questionable cup?

866. clay cup one

An inch and a half of coffee that I suspect tastes like polymer clay. My newest craft obsession.
