don't eat stuff off the sidewalk.... don't need it, so don't eat it! Famous line from The Cramps, the punk band....applies to beagles AND:

We were walking down the street Sunday and there was a clean espresso-cappucino machine on the sidewalk.  I took it home scrubbed it, ran vinegar through it, GOOD AS GOLD.  It looked like nobody had ever used it and it was utterly clean.  Works great!  Apparently NOT full of arsenic as we have sipped from it, as you see, and survived!
It is pretty awesome.  I gave us some new cups to go with it....

Gosh I look terrible early don't I?  My shirt matches my cup though....

See the temp there?  It was 60.  Our snow is gone!  60 in January!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have an awesome day!

You might need groovy stuff like these items for your Valentine, shop my etsy gallery NOW!

LIKE!!! ;-)
Enjoy the warmth while you have it. We got a thaw here, too. Rumor has it that the temp will plummet shortly in Asia, though.

Momma Fargo said...

Love it! Love the mug as well and the fact you match. LOL

Nice find! Cute cups

Lori Buff said...

Terrific find, I would have picked it up also. Great peace sign.

Nothing like a FREE new toy! The weather has been amazing here too... in the 70's. Kinda eery though.

Sounds like you live in one of those great "leave it by the curb and someone will take it" neighborhoods. Cute red coffee cups too!

I like the espresso cups. Sounds like the machine needs to live at your house and that you'll get lots of enjoyment having some espresso. Off to make some Americano:)

The machine was obviously waiting for you to give it a home. Like that you and the espresso cups match.

Cool 'Peace' !

Aren't you the lucky one! Gosh, Penny looks especially adorable in that last picture.

Busy Bee Suz said...

You are so lucky. Was there a four leaf clover in the vicinity too??? :) I've been thinking of getting a cappucino it better than coffee?

Becky Brown said...

Loooooove the pic of you and Penny. I think she likes you.
