Chemex ~ Perfection

The Chemex coffee maker ... just perfection! It was designed by a German Chemist, Dr Peter Schlumbohm. He was a member of the Bauhaus Art Movement. You can find Chemex at the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian ....

And ... Mary Richard's fabulous apartment in Minneapolis on the Mary Tyler Moore Show! I am dedicating this post to my pal Robin the Decorating Tennis Girl and I am participating in my other friend Marty's Table Top Tuesday. I wish that Marty and Robin and all the rest of you could come over and have a cup of coffee with me out of this stylish pot!!

Bentley ~ Do you think that you and Thelma could be friends? She comes over to visit you every day now. Don't you think you could do your best to make her feel welcome??

Susan and Bentley


  1. How precious that Thelma likes Bentley! I have heard of stranger friendships an maybe Thelma really does like Bentley for reasons only she knows. I love hearing these sweet stories!

  2. Love the images (in my mind) of YOUR honest kitchen.

    So I guess I'll have to try a Chemex since my coffee has been BAD lately.

  3. Oh, this is the perfect vignette to me. I do love my coffee. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

  4. And how many feathers of Thelma's is he hiding from you I wonder? I've never seen that type coffee maker. But I dooo love coffee!

  5. This is so neat. How is the coffee. Anything Mary loves, I love!


  6. Susan,
    What a nice surprise. I am with Janie, anything that Mary likes, so do I!!! I have not brought my Chemex over from the Inn yet, but now I know how much I miss it :( I'll be bringing it home tonight :)
    I wish I could have that cup of coffee with you and sweet Bentley, too! Some day, for sure!

  7. Great coffee I'm sure! I hope Bentley and Thelma will be the best of buds by the Barnyard Bash!

  8. That is cool Susan!
    I bet the coffee tastes great!
    And thank-you for the birthday wishes too!

  9. Altho I am not a coffee drinker, I think the coffee maker is very interesting. Would love to visit anyway, Char
    Arf to Bentley

  10. Hmm, I've never heard of a Chemex. I was reading about Thelma's trespassing. Poor Bentley, having to cope with such intrusion. I hope he is able to relax now. Thank you for your sweet words of support. You have no idea how they made me feel stronger. Hugs.

  11. I remember this coffee maker in Mary's apartment!

    Was that you Susan in that adorable photo in your last post? So cute!!

    Thank you so much for the beautiful birthday wishes!!
