Well here it is one week to the day...so its time to plan your table.
I just love to do the same things over and over, so my table might look something like this again!
here is a fun one from gather and nest
who said: "So, I'm a new reader on your blog (found you from Elise). This is my first comment, but who can resist this give-away? I'd go for a three bloom headband...so spring!"
Hooray for you! Ok, leave a comment here with a way to contact you...and in the meantime start browsing the Vintage Bloom Shop for your gift!
THANK YOU everyone who participated!!!
I am feeling so LIBERATED! Even though I didnt even get to the "big" stuff, I lived this past month with new eyes. "why do I keep that around, this is gross, why do I have 6 of these, I will never read that, nobody would ever read that..." So mostly books, games, and storage...but stuff that I keep Packing everytime we move just to store again. So...Adios stuff!
(I just hope I can keep these new eyes!!!)
I have been staring at this tutorial for a year and finally made a couple dresses!
Just go through your husbands closet...and snatch a couple shirts he may not wear anymore...and in a couple hours, you will have a couple new dresses for your little one!
My favorite part was using the basic idea and then doing my own variations.
Check out the tutorial at MADE.
I finally bought "Barefoot in Paris," my last Ina Garten cookbook. I was So excited to try it out and I found this sparkly gem of a recipe inside: BEWARE: THIS IS SUPER SUPER EASY!!!
1 pack pepperidge farm puff pastry (2 sheets)
2 cups of sugar
1/8 tsp. kosher salt
Thaw your puff pastry.
( she suggests overnight in the fridge...that works, but it also works 40 minutes on the counter)
preheat oven to 450
First mix the salt and sugar together.
put 1 C. of the mixture onto your board,
then put one of your sheets down
pour 1/2 cup mixture on top.
roll it out to a 14 inch square making sure the sheet is coated front and back with sugar.
Fold like this:
bake at 450 for 5 minutes
they should look like this:
Then flip them all over and bake for another 4-6 minutes. Just til the sugar is all caramelized or there is slight browning.
ok..so for St. Patricks day I tried tinting them GREEN by adding a couple of drops of food coloring to the sugar. (mixing it in a ziploc)
