Add a Little Fabulous to the Holiday!

I am lucky enough to actually know Rook No. 17 in real life...in fact we knew each other way before blogging and our kiddos all hang out together. She has been a busy bee (and she does not know I am doing this - HA!). Jenn crafts with extraordinary precision and detail...and she cooks and bakes like no one I have ever met. On her blog are a few (OK, there are tons, but I am focusing on the "now") fanciful things that I thought needed to be shared.
*********************************
Jenn has always been a *star* with the German glass glitter. When I met her 5 years ago, I swooned over her "Dream" letters in the girl's room...and she was way hip with all-things-vintage (you should see her house!) and vintage sheet music then too. Check out her Magnolias using vintage sheet music and German Glass glitter. BEAUTIFUL!
And here is a great stocking stuffer! Upcycle those socks into play donuts!
And....if you would like some real donuts, Jenn has a fabulous recipe for baked donuts. And yes, they are GOOD...better than good actually....DIVINE! In fact our little ones had a lemonade and donut stand this weekend and made quite the killing - I am sure it was the donuts that brought the customer in!

********************************* 

So, Jenn had no idea I was doing this,
but these were some goodies that just HAD to be shared.

Thanks Jenn for being my friend and for always inspiring me.
(Wait until you see the fabulous project we have been working on together!)

Now, go stop by Rook No. 17!

I'll be back later with some goodies!

  13. *sniffle* Yes, seriously Holly, you brought a tear (of joy) to my eye. What an incredible surprise, and such a genuine and touching gesture of friendship! When I get in one of my grumpy moods, and begin to snap out of it by "counting my blessings", you are always one of the blessings that I count. I am so glad that we're friends, and that our families are close as well. Your kind words and accolades really mean a lot, as you're someone whose talent and sense of style & taste I really admire! I may just attack you with a "Maddie" hug the next time I see you, so be warned. Your RLF, and "Bloggers Anonymous" member, Jenn
