Morning Coffee With ME!!!!!!!....

Hi Everyone!
I'm glad you stopped by for Tablescape Thursday! Would you like some morning coffee with me? As you know, we are selling our house and moving to West Virginia. I am very excited to go on a new adventure and see where God takes me. I am also feeling bittersweet about my house or should I say my favorite spot in my house. So today, I am going to share my favorite place with you. I hope you will sit down and enjoy coffee with me at my favorite spot! It's not that you haven't seen it have...I am just showing you a little more of who I am!

I love this spot!!!! I love the big windows and how bright and cheery my yard looks during the year.  In the spring I like to watch how the pond progresses to summer and then in the fall I like to see the color changes around the pond and the rest of the yard. While drinking coffee in the winter I love to watch the snow fall ever so gently like diamonds out of the sky .... I like how I can sit here and have coffee forever .... I do my prayer time in my spot! It reminds me how GREAT God is every time I look out my window. I have breakfast here every morning. I use my computer here at this table. I talk on the phone while sitting here. I just sit here and gaze out my window for no reason at all. Just thinking.............
What a  wonderful life God gave ME!

                                          I wonder how long it will take me to find a new spot?????
                                         I Wonder.....

These cups were a Christmas gift from a friend, Rutha.

For now, I just want to remember how it is and not think of a new beginning. I know it will be wonderful and beautiful. God promises me that. I am truly blessed... I know the Father and HE knows me and my spot. He will find me another .....a better one!

I wondered as I was sitting in my spot if I need to share my whole room with you????? I think I have said my spot is in my family room. Behind me sits "Chicken" our bird and our fireplace. I have four dogs, one is just in spirit. He sits in the little box on the mantle watching us as we busily get ready to have breakfast. Princess Penelope Peanut is in the picture. Believe me she is a Princess!!! We have many discussions on who is the QUEEN around here!!!!'ll see him in a minute.

Peanut is a Japanese Chin and is 10 yrs. old.


                                                           Our Family Room


Ceasar is busy sleeping on the couch without a care about the commotion around him. He is safe and happy with his blanket! Chloe is at the spa getting pretty, so she is missing all the hustle and bustle of the day. I brought her at 8am this morning.

                                                    Ceasar is a Japanese Chin and 8 yrs. old.

Hopefully in the coming weeks, I can share more of the house I have to leave behind with you. It's OK mind you, I know God provides and it's always good. Because He is good! I just wanted to sit down, have coffee with you and  share my spot. I hope you as you drank your coffee and looked outside you had a chance to dream a bit........ I did!

Meanwhile, I will wait on God to show me my NEW spot ! I promise I will share it with you.

Thank you for coming to coffee at my favorite spot today.

BLESSINGS my dear friends,


  1. What a charming little table to break your fast...nice view, too.

  2. You have a beautiful and inviting spot, and I'm sure you will have another one once you get settled in! I was just thinking yesterday about the perfect spot I used to have in another house, but I wouldn't trade it. God always provides doesn't he? Take care;-)

  3. I'm sure it is very bittersweet to move. And such a wonderul spot. You are right to totally trust God... He will have a new spot for you! I love this post! I just said a little prayer for you.

  4. It sounds like you are already missing your house. Hope your move turns out good for you, Elaine. I like your prayer and thinking spot, and I really like your off-white china.
    Regards, Beth

  5. I have a feeling that even in your journey into the new and somewhat unknown, that you will be ready for God to use you for His purpose and His good...and the new 'spot' that He finds for you will be perfect, according to His perfect will. I claim the Lord's protection for you on your new journey. God speed. Thank you for sharing your charming vignette...your special spot. Cherry Kay

  6. Well I just had to stop by to see your darling puppy! He is so sweet!! Yes, I'm a BIG dog fan :).

    I love the place you have your coffee at and your attitude about your new place is spot on! God will provide you with the place you are meant to be.


  7. Your special "spot" looks very inviting and cozy. I know how wonderful it can be to sit at a table by the window as we have a similar set up in our house and love to eat our meals or read there. I'm sure God will find you an even better place!


  8. Elaine, your spot is wonderful, indeed! Love those coffee cups -- too clever! I know God has a new special spot in mind for you, and it will be thrilling when you discover it. Blessings as you prepare for the move!

  9. What a great spot for morning coffee! Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello and leaving such a sweet comment at my blog! I just became your newest follower!

  10. I love that spot, too. What a beautiful setting. I love the chairs!!!

  11. Truly a blessed spot. I love the view and the chairs. I know you are sad to leave but the door has already been opened for continued blessings in your new home.

  12. Oh I know that where ever you live and hang your hat, that this pretty spot will always have special memories. What a perfect spt for your morning coffee. Love your morning companions. Thanks for your sweet visit too.

  13. What a beautiful spot, and beautiful home! I wouldn't want to leave it! You have a marvelous attitude about moving! The Lord will provide something even more special for you, I'm sure!

    Tablescape is wonderful! Love the mugs! May I have tea instead of coffee? I'm not a coffee drinker!


  14. What a beautiful spot indeed! But even more comforting the thought that our God always has a plan for us.
    Thank you for following me.
    Warm South African blessings.

  15. I can see what that is "your" spot! It looks so restful and inviting. I am sure your new home will provide you with just such a haven.

  16. This is such a pretty spot for coffee -- I know wherever you live, it will always be a special spot in your heart. I hope your next home for you and your precious pups will be just as charming -- I'm certain that you will soon have it cozy and welcoming.

  17. What a lovely place to sit and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee! And my! You have clean windows!!! I love clean windows but we have these old storm windows on our home that makes it impossible to keep the windows sparkling.

    I so know what you are going through with moving. We moved 2 1/2 years ago and it is alot of adjusting. I had lived in my hometown all my life so this was the first move away from family and friend ever. God is good and I am finally getting settled and enjoying the big old house that needs so much work we will never get all finished!

    bee blessed

  18. What a sweet spot for a cup of coffee and some quiet time. New adventures are so much fun!

  19. Hello Elaine!
    I am happy your dh has found a job. I know it is difficult, a new adventure.
    You have a lot of faith, and that will guide you.
    I can't wait to see your new landing spot! I am sorry though you are leaving NY!
    I went to college in Ohio near WV. Some very beautiful areas there!
