Top 5 Hits
 Each week I feature my Top 5 Hits from the web.  Enjoy this week’s colorful picks!

Magical Melissa @ Honey Scrap Designs saved an amazing amount of money with her Pier 1 Knock Off. At under $10.00 a pop, we could make some very merry Christmas gifts!


Party hats off to Jenn @ This Mommy Loves for coming up with an affordable, fun party for Brenna. Pancakes & Pajamas 2nd Birthday is loaded with great ideas; adorable PJs, happy decor, plentiful pancakes with fresh fruit toppings, and I really like her giving tree idea.


Talk about a problem solver, Cards & Tinfoil Boxes is such a great idea! Thanks to Amanda @ impress your kids for sharing her fabulous family tradition. We often play games with our grandchildren and find ourselves outnumbered by little ones who need help…yikes. Now all of us can have fun!


Should have been a “wrist-model,” Sharon @ This Thrifty House shares with us how we can make a cute, cute, Safety Pin Bracelet. With so many pretty beads available and different colors and sizes of safety pins out there, we can make these for all our family and friends…stocking-stuffers anyone?


Just so happy, pretty hexie, wouldn’t you say? was created by Penny @ sewtakeahike. She’s as comfortable in her kayak as she is with quilting. I appreciate her beautiful hand quilting and yes, you’re right, it’s “pretty hexie”….love it!

Have an inspired weekend all!

    Howdy, this Ozark farm chick just hopped over from Cathy’s place and am so very glad I did. I have eight….yep, count ’em eight grandkiddos and I can always use another great idea or activity ’round the Ponderosa.

    God bless ya’ll and have a beautiful weekend from the happy hills and hollers of Missouri!!!

    Great Fives. My grandson’s first birthday party is tomorrow and also an UNO party. What a coincidence. That quilt is amazing.
