Cowboy Coffee


Do you remember this?
It was a gift from our dear friends. 

 Steve wanted a better way to display it . . 
so he bought some horseshoes
at the feed store and welded them together

 To make this hanger:)

Then I decoupaged these two pictures
to plywood . . .
cut them out on the band saw
and added them to his 
garage bay kitchen wall.  

Keep Smiling! 

Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

    1. Hi Ann, the horseshoes were all Steve's idea . . . he really had fun making that hanger. He was so happy with the coffee pot that just setting it on a counter wasn't going to cut the mustard :)

    1. Hi Vicky, we have been on a low carb diet so having a man that loves to barbecue is a blessing, and it keeps the mess out of the house.
      That's a big win-win for me :)
