Look What the Milkman Left

If you're a regular, then you already know that here at Cafe D,
"Frugal with the Pennies..." isn't just part of a tagline.
It's more of a lifestyle.

Luckily, the "Lavish with the Love" part is, too!"

A while back I started collecting the creamer bottles that had been collecting from our daily cuppa joe. The bottles are cute, no? Of course I really didn't have anything to do with them. If I had a little one, I would have filled them with sand and made bowling pins. If I were super crafty I'd...we'll I'd do something crafty!

But, I'm just a gal who loves her spices.

Even though I buy small on the spices I rarely use, I buy large when is comes to the herbs and spices I use a lot of. (Oregano, parsley, cinnamon...thyme, rosemary, etc.)

I love spice shopping just before Thanksgiving. I try to plan it so I have very little left over. Then I go and replenish my stock so my holiday food is as flavorful as it can be.

Recently I gathered up my large and small bottles, and put 'em to what I think is darn good use. The spices won't be affected by sun. They're air tight, unbreakable. And, if you ask me, darn cute!
