This week I'm Tickled Pink about
1 scentsational inspiration
{and a giveaway!}
1 clever blogger
...and since it was Earth Day,
these GREEN projects tickled me pink!
1 GREEN and gorgeous upcycle
1 GREEN dinner party
There are a few other little things
that are TICKLING ME PINK too!
{don't forget to grab a button - at the bottom of the post- if you have been tickled pink}
************************* 

The scentsational inspiration is
{There's a giveaway compliments of Amy too! See bottom of post!}

I have many serious loves {bordering on addictions}. 
Soaps and bath products are way, way up there on my list.
While perusing blogland I hopped on over to Bean Street Market
and there is was...gardeners soap!
I am one of those people who owns 20 pair of
gardening gloves, but never wears them...
I seriously need some cleaning
and moisturizing after I "play" in the yard!
So, seriously...I took this as a sign that I MUST
share her other creations with you!

Every single one of Amy's soaps are beautiful...
like the kind of beautiful
where you do not want to use them because
they are so beautiful, beautiful...
but you MUST use them to really get
the full effect of their beauty.
I am tickled yellow over the Lemon Ginger Marmalade soap.
How cute is the Apricot Freesia Goatmilk Soap?
Seriously...Is this not gorgeous! 
I have to mention the soap inspired by The Grand Canyon.
I {heart} the Grand Canyon - long story!
Amy is also busy clicking away some fabulous photos
of poppies and blue bonnets {soap to match}.
Her photos are as pretty as her soap!

You HAVE to check out all of Amy's soapy Inspirations.
Looking for a great Mother's Day gift?....
Amy has a little discount happening! 
Go HERE to get the code.
Bean Street Market also offers Lotions and Body Butters!
Poor hubby...literally!
 Go say "Hi" to Amy over at Bean Street Market.
You will L-O-V-E her...of course -
I think being NICE needs to be an I'm Tickled Pink requirement!
Then, go visit the SHOP or the Etsy shop!
And enter the giveaway at the end of the post!
*************************

one clever blogger
I have been reading Emmy's blog for awhile now
and have always been a big fan.
You have to see for yourself what
Emmy does on her "Time for Tots" posts.
The way she puts together these lessons for
her kids and then shares them with us
is super fantabulous  - and I am not just saying that
because she made my chicks on a stick!
**Check out Solids, Liquids, and Gases and prepare to be blown away!
**Or then there was Color day - They learned and got to make cupcakes...
my kind of time, for sure!

Emmy also hosts a Cooking Club...brilliant idea!
Check out what it is all about and put a little jump start in your meals.

Well, dessert is my favorite meal...yes I called dessert a meal!
Emmy has rules for her dessert! How great is that!

Go Visit Emmy! You will not be disappointed.
*************************
1 GREEN and gorgeous upcycle
from Eco-Friendly Freckles 
Before I dive into telling you all about how talented Jessica is,
I just have to say that I read her post
about the Sun and was blown away.
All we ever hear is bad things about this beautiful Sun of ours.
Check out some Sunshine Love! It Shines!

Now for the upcycle...
We all have jars and cans around the house...
and well, at 504 Main, oatmeal canisters and coffee tins
{from my favorite coffee place} are in abundance.
post to show us how to upcycle these containers and canisters beautifully!
All-around, Jessica simply has some awesome projects!
I have been wanting to reuse and repurpose my
little {er, slightly big} collection into beautiful, useful works of art.
I will be using her tutorial ASAP!
Oh...you don't feel like crafting your own...
and snag one of Jessica's creations!
{images from Eco-Friendly Freckles}

You must check out Eco-Friendly Freckles 
and all of Jessica's recipes, info, and eco-friendly ideas!  
************************* 
a green dinner party
Evette Rios, a Rachael Ray content buddy, worked with DecoArt 
and Goodwill of NY/NJ to create a series of videos using DecoArt
{I heart DecoArt} products to upcycle Goodwill finds
to create an "Earth Day Dinner Party".  When I saw this,
I just had to share. I {heart} Goodwill and all thrift stores.
{um yeah, that's what I did on my b'day last week...went treasure hunting}
And ya know I love DIYing!
Check out these videos.
There are some great ideas anyone can use!

There's a series of 5 videos located here: www.decoart.com/diy
Inspired and GREAT GREEN ideas tickle me pink
************************* 

Finally,
I just have to say that I'm Tickled Pink over
my recent SITS Day and I am still working my way
through the comments...but just know, I am coming! 
I had just caught up on my commenting, and then SITS Day hit...
and since I believe in paying it forward,
I will be visiting each person who visited me
{provided I can get to their blog...some have no links}.
So, I will catch up and you will see me again {cue evil maniacal laughter}!

Also...I will be mentioning this often...
check out the details for the
DIY CLUB blog hop coming May 7th.

  1. I'm tickled pink by all of your green finds. That gardeners soap is a must even if I never use it. It's just beautiful. I can't believe you don't wear gloves in the garden! I love those green rubber dotted gloves. The dirt comes through anyway, which is fine, but no blisters. HA!

  5. My favorite part of Evette Rios' dinner party was that centerpiece. It reminded me of some driftwood I have in my home. I do wonder where the heck there'd be room for the serving bowls. Does she go around serving everyone too?!?

  39. Homemade soap is the best! I have a friend who makes it, and she says it is the easiest thing to do. Since I'm not that crafty, I'll just take her word for it and continue buying it from those that have the craft down.
    Wishing you a beautiful week, Holly!
