Aqua Blue Heaven Friday: Coffee In The Morning, Coffee In The Evening, Coffee At Supper Time!

Welcome to Aqua Blue Heaven Friday! (Is it just me, or did this week take forEVer to get the hell over with already? It's just me? Great. Give me an IV drip of coffee please and most of you won't get hurt.)

... cheesy segue alert...

Speaking of coffee (there it is!), today's aqua-y goodness isn't vintage and in fact, combines my least favorite current trendy catch phrases: "eco-friendly" and, this one makes me hurl, "going green". Whatever happened to just not being a Hummer-driving asshole and just being a decent person, doing your part to keep this planet on the level? Do we really need to put a trendy spin on things that we should be doing every day anyway like recycling, upcycling and reusing in order to get folks to give a rat's ass about the world under their feet? Because that would make me sad. You know, assuming I was capable of feeling human emotions.

So along comes these super cute Homemade Reusable Coffee Sleeves on Etsy. File this under: "More crafty bitches on Etsy who make stuff that I wish I would've thought of or had half the talent to make something so crafty-ish! Maybe I'll steal that idea and make my own out of vintage fabric scraps! On second thought, who am I kidding, no I won't! But it's still a good idea for those of use who buy coffee, and I mean aLOT of coffee! What's that?! Am I am hopped up caffeine right now?!! What makes you say that?!!!"


  1. I've seen these! They're so cute. I love the fake Starbucks style reusable coffee cups they're selling now at like Bed, Bath & Beyond that have a fake sleeve design already on them. Ha ha!

  2. I love these, especially the one with the silverware pattern!

    I totally hear you both on the ridiculousness of having to spin something that should be common sense behavior just to get people to actually do them, and also on wishing I were a lot more of a crafty bitch.

  3. Perfect perfect. I want those for my tea.

    That kitchen is amazing - Exactly what my dream one looks like!
