a place for my pink coffee pot

    After browsing through Pinterest , Instagram and
   all the wonderful blogs I follow, I got the idea to
   make a coffee station. I had found this perfect
   pink coffee maker on Amazon but knew it would
   not make my husband happy to replace our black
   coffee maker with a pink one.  Still I couldn't
   get it out of my head.
     So this is what I came up with and I LOVE IT!


I now have a use for my thrifted coffee canister.
Moved my sugar bowl and polka dot cup and added
some linens out of my stash.
I put my coffee cups nearby on a shelf.
And now I love making my coffee every

at the river

     Last week was nice and cool,  so we went for a drive to the river. I was wanting to collect some 
     river rocks and Bobby was gonna do some fishing.    
    The path down to the river was lush and green.  It was filled with small orange flowers that I have
    never seen before.  
    And the view overhead was just as pretty.
    The Little Red River

       Bobby found a tiny brown trout stuck in a tiny little puddle and rescued it.   
     I searched the shore for just the right rocks.

    In the process I also found three heart rocks. Bobby found one too.
    This is what I came home with.

    And this is what I got them for.
