Top 5 Hits
Each Wednesday I spotlight some of the highlights I see from all of you.  Enjoy this week’s Top 5 Hits!
I adore this bright and pretty Terracotta Makeover shared by Jen @ Scissors and Spatulas.  I’ve got some old, tired pots just waiting for some TLC!
I keep thinking I’ve seen it all, and then once again I’m blown away by cyber creativity!  Have you dreamed of carriage garage doors too?  Terry @ Forever Decorating shows us how to go from drab to fab.  Don’t miss Guest Post: Painted Carriage House Doors Tutorial.  I am so doing this. Thanks Terry!
Now here’s a super Teacher Appreciation Gift that will get used.  I go through sticky pads like crazy.  Jami @ The Blackberry Vine gives a quick how to on her Sticky Notes.  You can even print her little tags.  If you’ve got a cute gift to share, accept her invitation to link up more TAGs @ her Pretty Packages Party.
Meet Broke-Ass!  You’ll be inspired by her story, Stocking the Broke-Ass Pantry, and the three day chicken @ Grist.  I have long been a proponent of how to stretch a $4.99 roasted chicken from Costco.  Broke adds healthy ways she feeds her family of 5.

(Sorry about some offensive language in advance with this post)

Fingerprint Flowers and Serving Pink Lemonade just go together for Mother’s Day!  Jeanine and her boys created such a delightful, one of a kind, card for grandma.  Such a sweet remembrance, thanks!
Congratulations to the capable gal @ The Cape On The Corner who had the smarts to say, “Yes,” to a friend who was giving away some used pavers.  Check out her awesome Saturday DYI,  She’s a brick….  It’s got me hunting for cast-offs!
OK, after an extensive search for fabulous, how could I exclude Ice Cream Sundae Cupcakes with Caramel Cream Frosting?  It’s my pick for framing this Mother’s Day.  You’ll find this recipe, that you can customize, a la Kristy @ Sweet Treats and More.
Have an inspired week all!

    I love that fingerprint idea!! Wouldn’t that be so easy to tie in to a children’s church lesson at the same time or something? I need to pass that along to our children’s minister.
