Each Wednesday I spotlight some of the highlights I see from all of you.  Enjoy this weeks Top 5 Hits!
Novice  quilter, Eleni, created this oh so lovely Dresden @ Sew Happiness.  The colors and quilting make me happy.  I’m sure her mom was delighted too, Happy Mother’s Day mom.

I’m loving these sophisticated new Scripture Stickers created by Mariesa @ Ten Cow Chick.  She’s kicked it up a notch from her seminary days, marking the key words from the 100 scripture mastery scriptures.  Thanks Mariesa for sharing a great idea many will want to use.

Kim @ Too Much Time On My Hands needed some pricey grow boxes for her small backyard.  She found a great way to replicate them at 1/3 the price.  Check out her Earth Day Thursday-Grow Box.  I’m so excited to see her follow up project, a decorative cover!

Cute, sunny, {Freebie} Summer Time Celebration Printables @ It’s Always a Party at the Parkers.  I’m thinking of all the lucky room mothers who are on the search for end of the year parties!

Orange is hot, but this is not!  Cynde @ The Exchange has a tried and true Recipe for the Best Self Tanning Lotion.  She promises a natural color tan, streak free, and it lasts 5 days.  Anybody else giving this one a try?  Who knows maybe I’ll post my “before and after pix” next week!
Make time for lots of fabulous summer days that sizzle with Angela’s {Free Printable} Summer 2011 Calendars.  June, July and August, each one is a work of art @ Anything But Perfect.
Don’t miss LDH’s marvelous photo gallery of May Flowers outside and in.  I enjoy each luscious post;  a creation in her kitchen, lovely old linens, a treasured postcard collection, her organized garage, or her beautiful family and decked out pup!  She is a most talented homemaker and I feel of her goodness @ With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart.
Last, but oh so yummy, in honor of National Chocolate Chip Day on Sunday, Katrina made individual Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake.  You’ll find her delightful no-bake adaptation @ In Katrina’s Kitchen.  Don’t miss her final presentation…I’m so making this for Girl’s Week!
Have an inspired week all!

  1. Happier Than a Pig in Mud

    All neat ideas Gnee! The quilt turned out great and think I have to copy down the No Bake Cheese Cake:@)

  2. LDH

    Thank you kindly, Gnee, for including my blog in you Warbling Wednesday! I always enjoy the great links you highlight and was so surprised to scroll down and see my own photo/blog included! 🙂 You brought out sunshine on this rainy Wednesday morning in NJ.

  3. Erin

    Terrific features!!! Ok, so you know me well…those little chocolate chip cheesecakes WILL be made at some point…too I was going to tell you that I am finding eating 2 eggs a day very helpful to eating less the rest of the day AND it is cutting down on my sweets cravings(and eating of them), well, except on Wednesdays when I march over here and then make plans to make whatever sweet was featured. Which to me isn’t all bad:) I know you wanted all of that info,LOL!!

  4. Pondside

    Lots of inspiration there – but I’ll wait on the self-tanning for more evidence!

  5. La

    Thank you so much for featuring my self tan tip! I’m thrilled! And yes, that cheesecake looks amazing! Thank you again!

  12. Jacqueline

    The cheesecake looks fabulous and I love the individual size!

    I ran over and read the post on self tanning. Can’t wait to give it a try.

    Fun scripture markers too. Love all of the recommendations. Have a great weekend.

  13. Debbie

    You’re full of good highlights this week! They all sound interesting. I really want to visit that scripture one and then get the scoop on the self-tanner. Where was it last week when I was walking around with chalky white legs?

  14. Amanda at Shindig

    Thank you for the highlight on my free summer printables! What a nice Friday surprise!

  15. Garden of Egan

    I can’t decide which one I love best.
    I do know that it is a good thing that I have gotten my house work done, cuz I’m going to be looking at these all day long!!!!!

    I just love your blog!

  16. Laura Ingalls Gunn

    The quilt colors are just gorgeous!

    But that cheesecake takes the cake.

    I also hadn’t heard of the scripture stickers. I will be checking that out.

  17. Pearl Maple

    So many sweet finds
    really like those scripture stickers, such a creative idea

  18. Amelia

    I’ve seen Anne’s photo in another blog, which shows that people can’t always get self-tanning right. The chocolate chip cookies cheesecake really looks yummy. But the link does not lead to the page now.
