Wednesday Link Love

I love this brooch….but when I looked at it in scale with the woman who is “wearing” it, it appears to be huge. I love it a lot, but smaller!

Just for fun, I’d like to let my daughters chalk my hair over Christmas break. One of my girls is sporting some purple hair that is woven in that I have a love/hate relationship with. (Her hair, not her!) I’d like to give it a temporary try!

I’ve been watching my thrift store for paint by numbers, but they are popular enough now that I am just not finding them. But this is a possibility!

Patience is at it again!

This is one of those times I wish I knew how to thread my sewing machine and sew! I would make a sun dress for sure!

I’m a sucker for index cards, so of course this sounds fun to me!

I’m not so into coffee, but I do love mandalas. This one is very cool.

I LOVE this idea!!!

TNT Tuesday

Kinda starting to find myself a bit again, and working my way back to the blog a bit more. 

We’ve been enjoying the last of our summer bounty.  Last night we had this great Southwestern Stuffed Spaghetti Squash.  When DH says in mid-meal, “Be sure to make this again.”, it’s a keeper.

Several years ago after eating ajvar at a local Bosnian restaurant, I fell in love.  If  you love red pepper like I love red pepper, and if garlic and eggplant and olive oil are okay by you too, then I think you would love it.  I am known for the kooky things I like for breakfast, and ajvar mixed with cottage cheese became my standard breakfast for literally over a  year!   I kind of wore myself out on it and hadn’t had it for a while.  But, I had some eggplant I needed to use, and an abundance of roasted red peppers.  Made some, and my love affair has begun again.  It’s good on the falafel crackers I got this week, or any cracker (or on cottage cheese), bread, you name it.

     NPR did a nice little piece on it- check it out. They call it Serbian Salsa!





Then there would be the 7-Up Biscuits.  Which are just way too easy and way too good, and so very perfect with the sweet potato butter I bought this week. 

And if the 7-Up biscuits are not unhealthy enough, let me send you over the edge……I give you the Chocolate Chip Oreo Brownie…..


I like to think I made the Chocolate Chip Oreo Brownie Lite……I did omit the ice cream AND the hot fudge sauce.

Late Link Love

I spy a toilet back there behind the curtain.  Maybe I could re-think camping…..Aren’t these beautiful?!

Time for a little Cake Wreck love.  It’s been a while.

I think I have found a reason to use this template every day since I found it last week!

I think I am going to just have to try a batch of this for research purposes.

Need a friend?  One that will go everywhere with you?

I cannot stop looking at this.  I want it.  Bad.  Been checking craigslist about every 15 minutes for two matching dressers like this!

We have this at the work cafeteria and it is so so good.  Good enough that they have it most every day.  Now I can try to make my own.

Wednesday Link Love

This is only one of many wonderful ideas from this great site!

Ever since seeing these, I’ve been watching Craigslist and have seen several great pieces you could score for not so many $$$ to make one of these, if you have a special child in your life.

A couple of fun ideas/ways to capture your kids as they grow can be found here and here. 

Now, I’m a sucker for a cozy place to nap…..but I’m just not sure about these.   I’m afraid I would get all settled into the nest and then would just have to laugh out loud…And for a minute I thought this looked divine, but then I thought a little more about it…

Orange is kind of growing on me, and this room is so happy and wonderful I can hardly stand it!
