Fancy This Fridays #135 and Features

Happy Friday everyone! This has been the fastest and greatest week ever around here with the arrival of my brand new niece Miss Klara!!! (: As you might imagine- Kassi has her hands full with baby so I’m doing my best to fill in a little. And I’m also totally faint from cuteness overload with all the snuggles and adorable baby clothes. So I’m up this week for features!

First up is Laurie over at Laurie’s Little Bits of Creativity with what looks like an AMAZING recipe for Berry Blast Orange Shortcake. A fun twist on the classic and so perfect for summer!

Speaking of things that look delicious- check out these very cute and very Patriotic Pinwheel Cookies from Jen at Don’t Mess with My Tutus! I’ve been itching to try making pinwheel cookies for myself and these are adorable. Also, who doesn’t love eating something that fills them with national pride?! ‘Merica, friends. ‘Merica.

And finally, with my new favorite baby girl in mind- Jessica from Sunny Stitching has generously shared a free crochet pattern for the cutest Chevron Baby Blanket. So fun and cozy.

Now on to the party this week!

Fancy This Fridays Rules:

1. Please link directly to the project post on your blog.
Not the blog itself.
2. Please link only your OWN posts.
We prefer to see what YOU have been up to… not someone random.
3. Please grab a button and display it somewhere on your blog. On your sidebar, on your posts, on your linky party page. We aren’t picky!
4. We would LOVE if you would comment on at least one other link.
Just pop over and say “Hello, coming by from Truly Lovely”, or something more clever… You know…
