My little Keurig coffee corner is still one of my favorite things about my office, and I found a new use for the mailbox cubbies (originally used in a small-town bank) that I discovered in an antique store years ago. It held office supplies in our last house, but now it is home to almost one hundred mugs. Most of my mugs were gifts from friends or publishers, or they are souvenirs of favorite places, so I'm delighted to have a place I can display and enjoy them all.
I'm prone to rearranging often, so if you look carefully, you'll see that things don't always stay in the same place for long.
So many of my favorite things in my office were created by talented friends and family. I love being surrounded by reminders of all the people I love.
My dad welded this "menu wheel" to create a place where I can display all those papers and cards that are too pretty to relegate to the trash can. He built my reference bookcase too.

I think my office is about as cool as they come, but you should see my husband's office space in the view-out basement of our new place. Take a look...
