Hi! Mike and I went to the Bachman's Spring Ideas House last weekend. So many inspiring ideas! I ended up taking waaay too many pictures. Turquoise now seems to be prevailing color. Very fresh and spring-y!

In the interest of page-loading speed, I'm splitting up the pics into different posts:

Ultimate Link Party Directory

Hi! Am I being big-headed by terming my link party directory 'Ultimate'? I'm pretty proud of it.

Parties in my directory are listed by name, by day, alphabetically and with the name(s) of each the host(s) in bullet points under the party name.

Very Punny . . .

A lighthearted way to remind kids that sharing is caring! My apologies to any shellfish in the audience.

Seashell craft by Muslin & Merlot. Don't be Shellfish!

I was going through my craft stuff and saw a bag of small seashells. I love a good (bad) pun so this is the perfect project to showcase one :-).


Last year I brought mason jar terrarium supplies to the family Easter gathering. This year I'm making tiny terrariums out of champagne glasses and hoarding them for myself!


Make your own hair accessory or necklace out of metal washers and ribbon!

Metal Washer Accessories

Years ago, I came across a DIY washer necklace tutorial at Chic Steals. Great blog with fantastic ideas! I knew I had to make one. As nice as they are for necklaces, they work even better as hair accessories!


It's Sunday FUNday! The Craftiest, Prettiest and Yummiest day of the week. I crawl through more than 30 linky parties every week looking for the bloggity best. Here they are!
