Over at Bird's place there is pure happiness and joy all around.
She has it all going on...

A White Chocolate and Strawberry Ganche tart...YUYMMY!
I just L-O-V-E printables and Bird has some super cute ones...
Tres cute!

Mother's Day Giveaway for these totally adorable printables

*************************
 1 talented designer
{oooohhhh...I sense a giveaway!}
I stumbled across Iris last year around Christmas,
fell in L-O-V-E with her jewelry and then ordered a piece as a gift.
{My mother-in-law loves it by the way!}
And, although some of you may have heard this story...
I am sharing it again anyway...
Iris knows the people who used to live in my house...
and she has even been here...is that a crazy small world or what?

So, back to the point, Iris is extremely talented
and creates amazing pieces of jewelry.
You just must go check out her SHOP to see it all. 
Mother's Day is just around the corner {hint, hint}!
Iris not only designs her own amazing jewelry, but has a FAB blog.
Iris hosts a Featured Artist series that introduces us to
There is some fantastic talent showcased here.
Then there is Friday Fashion Finds...to-die-for.
Everything from T's and jeans to dressing for special occasions 
to fashionable simplicity is featured!
Oh, did you notice those earrings? Want to win your own pair?
In any of these beautiful colors!
Iris is generous enough to be giving away a pair!
See the end of the post for details!

1 tasty idea

Think Tank Momma

I am always up for a super-tasty new recipe, so when I saw this
new meme happening on Thursday's over at Think Tank Momma...
I squealed with delight!
This week's post is a fabulous recipe for homemade -
preservative, junk-free, wholesome red sauce to go with rigatoni...
Go check it out HERE.
"I have been cooking for a very long time. It's a creative outlet for me, much like my blog.  So what would be better than meshing the two together. I will share where I hide vegetables so my kids will eat them. You tell me how you get those whole grains in. We will have themed weeks, holiday shares, it's wide open."-Adrienz Girl

Go taste what's happening over at Think Tank Momma
and then join in next week to see what's cooking.

a green solution
from Amy at Positively Splendid

Positively Splendid

I actually adore Amy's blog for so many reasons {I could go on and on}...
but today I am tickled pink over her Oh-So-Chic Napkin Tutorial.
I, like most people, am trying everything I can to go green,
help out the Earth a little, and conserve resources.
I shop with my own bags, won some reusable produce bags from Erin,
and am working on getting rid of the unnecessary.
Cloth napkins are my next project to tackle and
Amy's tutorial for some oh-so-chic ones are positively inspiring.
It is a positively delightful experience!

  9. Hi Holly, love to win the jewelry! And of course I follow you. I liked the reference to Iris being in your house before, reminded me of when Dual Mom and I found out we were blogging right around the corner from one another and she knew the people we bought our house from, and she had been in my house too!

    Freaky small world indeed!

  28. Where do I start?? These ladies are all fabulous and creative. Where do they find the time to do these things. Amy's food is sooo pretty. haha. And I love Iris' beautiful creations. I just don't have the patience for that. I love people who do. And if my girls would wear bows in their hair (sniff) I would so make those felt bows. I suppose I could anyway and use them for something else. I love crafting made simple. Whew. Are your eyes burning yet? hehehe.

  49. Wow--
    My blog is moving to a new host so it is still down this morning--I guess I wasn't one of the lucky 30 min to 1 hour moves. It's looking more like 13 hours, the good thing is it should be back up soon.
    How is your .com going?

  50. How crazy is that story about you and Iris! It really is such a small world. Love your Tickled Pink picks!! The felt bow over at Bird Crafts is adorable! If only Gracie would wear bows. :( The earrings over at Till Death Do Us Art-- Obsessed! The colors are fun! Hope I win this giveaway. They are completely my style! How cool is the new meme at Think Tank Momma?! LOVE.
    Lastly, the napkin tutorial!! You read my mind Holly!!! I've been wanting to go completely green, and this will be my next step.

    Thanks! Have a nice Sunday.

  55. Those napkins are so cute! They really put my pathetic ones (see tomorrow's post) to shame. I mean, I knew they were pathetic but when I came over here - BAM - a whole nother level of shabby. (Not shabby chic, btw, just shabby.)

    I follow - would love to win the earrings.
