Piper Ann had these shoes that hit the point of no return. I could literally smell her coming.
After we got her witch costume from Goodwill for $3, I knew we could fancy up those shoes for one last hurrah.
Before (stuffed with plastic bags)
After (a little purple spray paint, mod podge, and glitter)
I would love a shelf like this under my washer and dryer. (Ricardo, if you’re reading…)
Wouldn’t these topiaries look wonderful on a Christmas table?
These pumpkins would be perfect for my front porch! I love the addition of the grapevine.
Here is a link for a pdf file if you’d like to “Boo” your neighbors. Its a fun tradition in our house!
I don’t know if I’m ambitious enough to try this, but these wire cloches are really cool!
This belt is adorable. The flowers could have many uses!
I love every idea on this page!
I LOVE this bag. It really makes me want a serger!
I picked these up at Williams-Sonoma.
I’ve never used pancake molds before, so it took some tweaking with the recipe. Pumpkin pancake mix does not work well with the molds. Its way to starchy and sticks too much. I ended up using the recipe on the package and spraying everything liberally with nonstick spray.
Oliver really enjoyed the flower themed muffin tin, and asked for it again.
In the upper left and right corners there are Ritz crackers with notched carrot slices and string cheese centers. The top center is popcorn. Bottom left is a Bologna rose, bottom center is chocolate pudding with a vanilla pudding piped flower and a marshmallow center. Bottom right is an apple sliced notched with a raisin center.
I finally got the kids muffin tins spray painted. I also picked up some silicone muffin liners at Home Goods. They are flower shaped, so I decided to run with the theme and make a daisy/flower themed lunch.
The muffin tin colors aren’t very fun. I just used what I had.
Sliced string cheese with a raisin center.
A piece of bread cut with a circle cookie cutter that I then notched with my kitchen scissors. The center is a little dollop of Merkt’s port wine cheese.
Bologna with a string cheese center. I folded a circle of bologna in quarters and then cut petal shapes. Piper Ann told me it looked nothing like a flower. She said it looked like “a bandaid, when you need another one.” I can’t say I disagree!
For dessert a little Reese’s pieces flower. (suddenly, I love the purple, yellow and brown combo!)
The apples in peanut butter was kind of a stretch, but I tried.
