Monday Inspiration #15

Welcome to some


I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  It's been soooo hot here that we spent most of our time in the pool or under a shade tree.

So, let's get Inspired

This week I am sharing 

10-Minute Outdoor Candle Planter
Garden Therapy
I was strolling through my local garden center a few weeks back and saw the most brilliant use of terracotta – outdoor candle planters! I quickly gathered the materials and went straight home to make my own, and I LOVE how it turned out!

Distressed Harlequin Art Deco Side Table
The Interior Frugalista
That's right, Mr. Frugalista found this tiered Art Deco side table on a local online auction site, which has become a go-to source for furniture. It had already been chalk painted in Duck Egg Blue, distressed, and dark waxed and was selling for a very good price. Sold to the highest bidder!

Adult Coloring Review
Paulette's Papers

Premium Colored Pencils (SET OF 72) Soft Core Lead Ultra Smooth in 72 Individual Colors (No Duplicates) in a Beautiful Tin Case – Pre-Sharpened – Highest Quality – Perfect for Artists & Beginners

Cookie Dough and Oven Mitt
Say hello to my very first chocolate cheesecake for Cookie Dough and Oven Mitt! This chocolate peanut butter ball cheesecake is epic though. It has Nutter Butters crushed up into cookie balls and placed into the cheesecake before it’s baked. They are firm which I love. They don’t fall apart when you’re cutting the cheesecake or getting a fork full.

DIY Lavender “Essential Oil” Tincture
Hello Creative Family
I’m so excited to officially launch our Think Ahead Handmade Gifts series today!!! I hope that you all had a chance to read my post on Tuesday where I introduced the concept of the series and gave you all the opportunity to sign up for our Handmade Gift Givers Club. If not, hop on over to our Handmade Gifts Made Easy post and take a peek!

Easy DIY Burp Cloths
The Lost Apron
These burp cloths are quick and easy to make.  They are great for your baby, to give to a new mom, or as a simple baby shower gift.  They are made with a cloth diaper on one side and fun fabrics on the other side.  Make a set in a variety of fabrics.

Walking on Sunshine
And I've been doing really good at taking the photos, writing the ingredients
down as I go along so I can blog about the recipe with you too.
 I'm sure we've all seen the video floating around on Facebook of the Hasselback chicken stuffed
with cheese, tomatoes and basil.   I made a few changes from the recipe the video showed and
it came out delicious.  Really easy and my husband is already requesting
this recipe for dinner again

Flour On My Face
This Mango Peach Salsa recipe is an old recipe from back in 2011. It is so good that I have made it so many times I can’t even count.

Rose Bakes

A couple of weeks ago I went on the search for a recipe for a cake like this for my sister-in-laws birthday.  I wanted something new to bake for her, and since she loves cookie dough, this seemed like a perfect cake!

Baked Mac n’ Cheese with Hot Dogs & Tomatoes
You Brew My Tea

Baked Mac n’ Cheese has been a favorite of mine since childhood, but this particular recipe is the creation of my mother-in-law.  In fact, it is something that my Beau has been telling me about for years now.  So, this year for his birthday, I finally indulged and bought the ingredients to make this dish just for him.

Today, I thought I'd share Noah's birthday cake for this year!  He is a huge fan of peanut butter cups (more of an addict).  It's to the point where we can't keep them in the house because we'll both finish off a bag in a couple of really.  So, when it came time to craft up the perfect cake for him, I knew exactly what to make!
