I love Top Gear (the American version, although the U.K. one is good too). 80% of the reason I love it is I have a crush on Rutledge Wood.
A Few of My Favorite Things
Balloon surprise with pictures and a reason you love them on the back of each one...TOO good!!
haha i love this! The only one I kinda disagree with is number two, not sure if it means fancy smancy or just a place to have fun in general! For me, as long as we have a good time I'm good! Ugh, I think a cute first date would be on the boardwalk! Not a theme park, a boardwalk! :D too bad I don't live near one x(
I love, love, love and adore this. It would go in my dining room over my reclaimed wood table with industrial metal chairs on one side and a wooden bench on the other side and comfy chairs on each end with rows of little round studs in the same silver grey metal. (Yes, I have too much imagination.)
|C.S. Lewis| "I love this because it is so easy for us to assume we are good or better than others, until we are truly confronted with the real work of being good, until we are no longer looking down to prop ourselves up on the failures and shortcomings of others, but looking up, rather, too see how far we have yet to climb in relation to goodness itself. Now there's a humbling if ever there was one."- Dammy O'
I have had a version of this before, but I love how clean cut it is but how playful it can be at the same time.
Agave Syrup is worse than High Fructose Corn Syrup although it is being marketed as the new ultimate natural sweetener. The Central American natives did have a product from the agave plant called "Miel De Agave", a naturally processed product similar to maple syrup, but most (not necessarily all) modern day agave has nothing to do with the Miel De Agave, and is processed similar to High Fructose Corn Syrup (This is the reason I blog. It makes
Here is a nautical version of my popular wish bracelet, perfect for your beach parties, seaside weddings, and other special occasions! The wish bracelet is fabled to bring good luck. When you tie it on, make a wish. Keep wearing the bracelet, and when the bracelet wears off, your wish will come true! The origins of the Wish Bracelet have been attributed to ancient cultures across the globe. I first received one on a trip several years ago
Wood Head to Ceiling Board - DIY. Very cool, although not sure I would sleep, given the fear I'd have of it falling on me in my sleep.
This was the top pinned image of the month! I love it when the image contains the instructions too. I just ordered some lavender essential oil on Amazon (this one is the #1 best seller and has great reviews).
I definitely had a crush On Prince Derek... is it okay If I still have an itsy bitsy one since he's just a cartoon? lol
we love babies
Numbered Clothespins on a Hanger. I love this concept! Although this example uses the alphabet, the same idea could allow students with disabilities to practice placing numbers in order. Not only would it strengthen their knowledge of numerical order, but it could simultaneously work on fine motor skills. This is one of the coolest, yet most simple, tricks I've seen in a while!

'I knew I'd miss you. But the surprising thing is, you never leave me. I never forget a thing. Every kind of love, it seems, is the only one. It doesn't happen twice. And I never expected that you could have a broken heart and love with it too, so much that it doesn't seem broken at all.'
A swing inside the home....BRILLIANT! I used to have one of these on a spring so that not only did it swing but it could bounce too!
Featuring a diverse range of plants from 80 countries, this tropical garden is hardly typical of the U.K. That’s because it’s located on
I will always miss a good friend I used to have... I know that shes not in my life any more for a reason... I know I will never have another friendship like the one we had. I will always, always, always, love her. :( losing your best friend is like death.
Interesting...The Witch’s Pointy Hat may be the most typical Wicca symbol. But there is a good reason. Like the sorcerer’s hat, it was created as a pyramid - a shape which is known to raise energy frequencies. This pointed hat, or Apex, was designed to funnel Divine energies into one. Although it seems trivial nowadays, the Apex can be found on priests and Gods and fey folk for millennia.
Baked Buffalo Chicken Strips- according to my husband, this is THE best buffalo chicken tender recipe that I have made to date and he sees no reason why we would ever need to try a different one. ;) Best thing about it? It is a lighter, healthier version!
I can't even describe to you the depth of love I have for my niece Ashley, she is the girl I always wanted, and although the relationship is Aunt/Niece...it is as close as if we were Mother/Daughter!
The TORTA method for ganaching a cake - by tortacouture @ www.CakesDecor.com :: Lc- the blog has many good tricks for this method. The reason they're so vertically perfect is she uses two boards, the exact same size, slightly larger than cake - and this is neat "you apply water to the board before applying it to the top of the cake, the ganache will have seized on the top making the top board just pop right off." Cool tip, lady!
Here is an inexpensive but meaningful gift I made for my hubby for our anniversary last month. I filled a jar with 50 pieces of his favorite candy (Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups). On the bottom of each candy, I used a round “garage sale” sticker and wrote on each one a reason why I love him. It sits on his desk and every time he reaches for a candy, he is reminded why I love him!
I love this idea! 12 days of Christmas (although I would not do them on the actual days but the 12 days before Christmas) for a loved one. Just tailor the gifts to your loved ones personality and it is an instant, sweet and not expensive gift!

love this in black - I have a version of this in white, but the black is a whole different feel
For the Home
We have noticed that there aren't many big dog houses for large breeds of dogs on the market. If you want a big dog house you most likely will have to build it yourself. This is only one reason why we have designed The K9 Kennel Castle. Not only is it huge making it a comfortable shelter for your larger breeds of dogs but is saves on space too. These eye-catching dog houses provide a safe and comfortable shelter for your dogs, while making it easy and fun for you to care for them!
This is a great version of a similar wall hanging I have. Love the individually framed letters.

HOT MILK CAKE: One old fashioned recipe that I have found is a version of a depression recipe. Simple, but oh so good.
