eastward we go.

hey pretties.

i have quite the announcement for you today. really. it's huge.

just one thing first. could you do me a solid and head over to to read about it?

to all of you who have stayed in touch through the blog, thank you!  let's consider this a bit of a retirement from the good ol' blogger and i hope to find you an avid visitor at the new site.

the fun has just yet begun.

add bookmark.

morning, pretties.

i scan the interwebs fairly regularly in an attempt to keep myself fresh on current coffee culture as well as looking for great resources to share with staff and, well, you.

quite recently, i had a friend pass along a blog of sorts and i felt as though i just must share.

it is rare that i am taken back by reviews, general content, industry and craft knowledge and design elements.  this little site hits all three.

i encourage you to click around and read a bit of what this coffee traveler has found while traipsing around the globe. the article you will find first (four barrel) is particularly interesting and will most certainly be a topic of discussion here shortly.

what do you guys read? whether coffee related or not, what are some of your favorite blogs?

the third place

“The Third Place”
The Third Place is a concept of Ray Oldenburg, urban sociologist and author of The Great Good Place: Cafes, Coffee Shops, Bookstores, Bars, Hair Salons, and Other Hangouts at the Heart of a Community. The First Place is your home, and the Second Place is your office. You have assigned roles and tasks at each place, and you know nearly all the people in each. The Third Place is where you meet with people you don’t know that well, or maybe at all, and you exchange ideas, learn about other people, and, as Oldenburg sees it, enrich society and yourself.

hello, dear friend.

as it seems, i have neglected you recently. for that i am sincerely, and deeply, apologetic.

let's play a quick game of catch up, shall we?

merry christmas!
happy new year!
it's almost valentine's day!

vintage heart has had a bit of a makeover, i will get to perfecting the blog eventually (really i should be doing that right about now) but check out a fancy new logo that we have:

quite dashing, if i may say so.

this christmas i put together a little product sample for those who work tirelessly to support vintage heart with their talents and time. this made for a very vintage heart christmas indeed:

a sneak peak at what i hope to line your pantries with.

be well, pretties.
