{ Prompt }



Inspired today by my new little stack of spring ribbon from American Crafts.






Also finding inspiration from this new little shirt we bought at Target yesterday for Annabelle.









And in our first sunny little patch of mini daffodils, blooming under the big tree outside of the nursery window.







We made pink play dough this morning. And scented it with imitation strawberry flavoring. Such and fun 5 minute project. Will post my recipe if anyone is interested.




I love that saying "you learn something new every day." And today I discovered what a muffaletta is. Please tell me I am not the only one who didn't know. And doesn't it look/sound amazing? I wish I was having it was what we were having for lunch. Peanut butter and honey on whole wheat toast with a glass of o.j. is what we are actually having. With a frozen Oreo or three after lunch. We rarely buy Oreos, but there was an coupon for Oreos this week and so I caved in a bought a package. A friend of ours turned us on to sticking them in the freezer, where they turn into bite sized, rather addicting miniature ice-cream bars. But what new delicious little bit of info did you recently uncover? Maybe it's a new found favorite recipe




This lady is so amazingly gifted. Check this out. I am totally smitten. Also, wanted to share this darling idea with you. Go check out her super sweet templates. What posts are inspiring you ladies these days? Mind sharing?




Hoping to hear from some of you lovely ladies soon. Have a growing file of eye candy? Do share. Have a recently completed or contemplated project...please share. Baked anything lately and been so proud of it, that you photographed it? Feeling inspired for spring? Discovered a new blog or Etsy shop that you can't get enough of ?
Hint, hint...some new posts around here would sure be nice.

Thank you, thank you for putting up a new post! I was sick of seeing mine everytime I checked in! We love muffalettas around here! I don't know if we make them the proper way but we just use ham, salami, provolone and usually buy an olive tapenade. Put it all in some soft/crusty baguette like bread, wrap in foil and warm in the oven! Super yummy and easy! I posted about a fun new project idea (that totally wasn't mine) today and a print from a cool etsy shop (LJink.etsy.com). That is my current inspiration. Thanks for the lovely post!

LOVE that polka dot shirt! So adorable! Thanks for sharing your playdough recipe! I've made it but never with a scent. We will have to try it!
I can't wait to try some "oreo's" frozen. That sounds amazingly yummy.
Thanks for spring inspiration! It's lovely. And I have to agree with Leslie. lol
