I have been wanting to make a Spring wreath for sometime and made this one with some burlap, Amy Butler scraps of fabric, scrapbooking brads and a grapevine wreath that I picked up at Michael's.

CSN Bunn Thermal Carafe Review

One of the things I like to do throughout the morning is drink coffee and I don't like to chug it I like to savor it and enjoy each sip throughout the entire morning. The problem I have is that my timer for my coffee pot warmer shuts off after two hours so by the 2nd cup I usually have to warm it up in the microwave which isn't optimal. Courtesy of I had the great pleasure of reviewing the Bunn Thermal Carafe and I have to tell you it is one amazing carafe. I put my coffee in the carafe at 8am and drank throughout the morning and my coffee was piping hot. And then at 2pm I decided to see if it was still hot and it was so I had another cup, yes it was still hot at 2pm, 6 hours later! That night when I was cleaning up our kitchen I was pouring the remaining coffee out and it was still warm! What I also like about the carafe is that it is really easy to clean and does not leak when pouring. I have had other carafes that leak all over the kitchen counter when pouring. In my opinion this is one fabulous carafe and it kept the coffee hot way longer than I had expected.

Bunn Thermal Carafe Product Details:
  • Holds or 64 ounces (12 cups) of coffee or other hot beverage.
  • Unbreakable stainless steel interior and exterior.
  • Vacuum insulation keeps beverages hot for hours.
  • Brew through lid allows direct brewing.
If you are interested in the Bunn coffeepot with carafe also carries the Bunn VPR Pourover Thermal Carafe.

This really is too short to drink bad coffee and cold coffee but now my problem is solved with the Bunn Thermal Carafe. I am off to have another cup of Joe that will be piping hot!

Bubble, Bubbles and more Bubbles...

It has been a long, cold winter in Michigan but today we broke out the bubbles and had oh so much fun. The birds were chirping, and it is very, very muddy.

I (heart) not having to wear a winter jacket, cracking open our windows just a wee bit and the abundance of sunshine. This may be a tease for now but I will take it!

Mudd=Spring right?

Let it shine...

We have had a bit of a heatwave this week in Michigan, 56 degrees in March is a pleasant surprise. We have also had an abundance of sunshine and I love how the sun shines in our front door, apparently I am not the only one, as you can see Will and Kane are soaking up the sun, pure sweetness if you ask me.

What is the weather like in your neck of the woods?

A sneak peek....

I don't know about you but I am a fan of online shopping. I am not sure what I would do without this resource at my fingertips. When I was asked to take a peek at CSN stores I had no idea what I was in for. CSN has 200+ stores and they offer everything from items for baby, the home, the kitchen and much more. One thing that is particular interest to me is their kids bedding since we are looking for new bedding for Will. I love their Freckles Motor Club bedding pictured above.

I will be reviewing a very cool item for the kitchen but meanwhile take a peek at everything they have to offer HERE.
