Ambiance – a coffee corner

Some old silver finds from brocantes which I put together and use for coffee and tea…(one of those small trophies is mine, which I received for athletics years ago…you didn’t know that!) tiny athletics trophy for a Hellebore flower..

…café crème teaspoons in a sugar bowl…

…demi tasse teaspoons in a trophy…

…coffee things in old brocante silver…

à bientôt!

  9. Love, love, love demitasse spoons and adore how you’ve shown them with sthe vintage ilver. So elegant.As a side note, I have my silver baby orange juice cup in my bathroom holding q-tips. Lots of great ways to use vintage silver.

    I have a collection of vintage demitasse spoons, some very ornate and collected by my great- aunts and engraved with the names of places they visited early in the last century- a very Victorian and noble hobby for ladies of the time. We serve demitasse coffee after dessert in pretty demitasse cups passed on a silver tray and always have pretty little silver spoons and cubes of sugar.

    J’adore this post. Bravo.
