Coffee Addicts Unite!

No Joke. Addicted to coffee.
So addicted that I found these authentic burlap coffee bean bags at a flea market in Northern California and knew they had to go home with me. For something. I was sure I could do something with them...they wer going home with me. Back to the addiction for a minute. Seriously, an 8 cup pot MYSELF (my husband doesn't drink coffee) and in the fall and winter months...another 4-6 cup ot in the afternoon. LOVE it. I love the smell, the taste and just the feel of holding my warm mug. With an almost 4 year old (her birthday invites should have gone out today) and a 1 year old...I NEED IT!
Okay, now back to the uses for the burlap coffee sacks. Pillows!!! Yep, after airing them out and dumping out left over coffee beans...I started sewing. I have made pillows, some with the coffee sack front ad back, others with a cool black or red canopy stripe fabric on the back. I sell these pillows in my Etsy shop, for around $35. So, it is almost 4:00pm and it is a chilly winter can guess where I am headed. To my kitchen to brew a pot of coffee! Now...for a fabulous coffee treat that OF COURSE has a dairy product (supporting my husband and fellow dairy farmers!) in the recipe. This was (and still is) my favorite winter drink. I found this on a fellow blogger's site, This is an Eagle Brand recipe...delish! Love & Junk ~ Julie
