If you know me well you know this means I love you a whole "LATTE".
There are a few things I love as much as my morning coffee...chocolate, wine and most importantly my family and friends. Those would be the top ranking contenders anyway...not necessarily in that order.
I guess it kinda depends on the day, wink wink!
We've had this plain wooden box forever. It's a cd holder. I'm not sure where we got it. I think Scott may have had it before I came into the picture. (I know...how did it even survive the "we-can-live-without-this-purge" that happened to Scott's stuff when we moved in together??? Scott is still searching for some of his bachelorhood belongings. Sorry Honey.)
I painted it black. Distressed it a bit. I only need to distress A BIT because everything ends up distressed in our house.
I printed this saying on regular printer paper using several different font sizes then traced it onto the box with a ball point pen. The wood is soft so that made this the easiest method. Tracing left indentations for me to follow with my paint pen. I gave it a quick sanding to roughen it up a bit more. I could have cut the words out on my Cricut to create a more polished look but...hey...I kinda like imperfections. ;)
Added a couple of rusty old hinges I found in Scott's shop. (Yeah, he'll be looking for those later too. I'm sure lucky he loves me!)
Threw in my freshly cut wheat grass.
It seems an appropriate message sitting right here in the window next to my coffee station.
And if it's a morning when I'm not feeling the inspiration so much...I'll just turn it around and have it say this...
