my favorites this week 3.7.14

How in the world is it March already?!  It is so true that the older you get, the faster time flies.  I think our bipolar weather may finally be settling down and headed for spring and I can't wait!  Spring is always hard on the blog though, because I want to do so many projects but I am preoccupied with sitting on my front porch and grilling out.  I will try to keep myself in check!

Threshold™ Gold Stripe Lamp Shade - Cream (Large)

1.  The perfect little shot of gold on this Threshold lampshade.
2.  My friend, Caroline, said this DIY made her think of me.  She knows me well!  I love the idea of making some of these concrete votive holders for my summer porch!
3.  I am always gun-shy about trying "health foods", but I finally gave quinoa a shot and I was pleasantly surprised.  This recipe is a great intro to the grain.
4.  I love this "planning wall"


5.  I love these black & white easter eggs!
6.  Copper's all the rage.  Get your fix for cheap with this basket!
7.  I was all, creative & involved mommy with this idea!  The boys loved it!
8.  How great is this DIY Rifle Paper Co. clock?!

9.  Did everyone catch Kim's amazing little sofa makeover?!  Love that yellow piping!  
10.  A pretty rug from Target.  
11.  Love these hair ideas using simple bobby pins!

*If you are looking at the link on your phone you will not see all of the pictures of the entries.  Instead you will see some text that says: An InLinkz Link Up.  Click on that and it should take you to all of the projects, then just look for my DIY skirted bar!

  3. That sofa is darling, and I loved those chic bobby pin hairstyles. I've never tried quinoa but that chili looks delicious! Headed to your CWTS link!

  4. Your Friday favorites are always some of my faves too! As a fellow long locked girl...loving the hair ideas...who knew bobby pins could be so cute?! Tried clicking over to vote...cant seem to find the link with projects?

    1. The link is a ways down on the page...under the Apple vacation giveaway. If you are on your phone you won't see the the thumbnails but instead a link that says An InLinkz Link Up. That's all I know- hopefully ti works. And thanks for trying regardless!!

  5. those hair ideas are great! mine is also long, although i have bangs. my husband tells me my bangs are awkward and i tell him awkward is the new sexy. i think i'm right.
