My Precious

Good morning!   So what's going on in your world?  I've dropped off that quilt to the quilter and now I've moved onto some other things.  Yesterday with the help of the internet I figured out something on Photoshop and felt like a genius for a better part of the afternoon. Don't worry, the world has a way of righting itself and within a few hours I was back to my old self, you know, the totally not-genius one.

But hey, I don't let it get me down.  It just wouldn't make sense.  So  how cute is my new coffee press?  Or as I like to call it My  Precious.   Yes, I did go there.  Honestly, I'm not in the acquisition mode most of the time, but sometimes Pinterest really gets me and serves up a photo that has me in it's clutches. It all started with this pin.  I've used a coffee press for years but always that big Bodum Chambord Press that's plain and not exciting like one WITH A PINK TOP AND A RED HANDLE. Lets don't even mention how adorable that aqua knob is. 
You can only imagine how this story normally goes, something adorable like this cannot be acquired through normal channels. I spent days obsessing about it, then pretending that I didn't care and then trying to search for it one more time.  And then I found it here! And they ship to the United States.  So now I have one.   Phew.
Here's the link to the blog post at Coco Rose Diaries where the photo originated. What a lovely kitchen Vanessa has. If you want to just see pins of her home, check here.
Ok, that's it for me today. Just in case I don't get back here, have a happy weekend friends! xo
Hey! Happy May Day!!

Yesterday I spent the better part of two hours learning how to put pictures from my android phone on to my Mac. When it was accomplished I felt like a genius, only later to be humbled when my daughter pulled up the photos and half are missing!
I love the part of your story when you say you spent a couple days pretending not to care.
Life is good!
