Fancy This Fridays #171 and Features

Happy Friday!!

Check out the features from Fancy This #170, and then we hope you’ll share a link or two of your own in this week’s linky party!

So this week, the theme kind of just leaned towards eggs… Easter is coming up in a few weekends! Although, these egg features aren’t necessarily all Easter related…

First up,  I think these Lace Doily Easter Eggs from Cassie at Little Red Window are so pretty! And they’d be perfect for little ones to find that aren’t so good with keeping real eggs in tact… Or even just for a pretty Easter decoration!

Next, Chrystal of Happy Mothering shows us how to make Egg Cups: An Easy Make Ahead Breakfast! I’m all about easy and make ahead especially if it helps the chaos of a week day morning!

And finally, here’s a cute Framed Easter Art Project from Angela at About a Mom. It’s easy and quick enough to do, you could whip one out this evening to display for Easter!

Well hello there weekend! So nice to see you! ;) In case you missed it, I shared a fun little video of my sweet girl that’s sure to make you smile this week. I also marked off another of my Twenty Wishes!

Let’s jump right in to the features from Fancy This #169!

First up, in case you haven’t realized this I am a photographer… So when I saw Garage Sales R Us’s post on DIY Newborn Photography Props I was sucked in. She took some beautiful images of her baby niece all with props she whipped up herself! You’ll want to click over just to see this sweet baby girl! ;)

Next, I’ve seen the idea of Cinnamon Roll Belgian Waffles floating around on Pinterest. Lora of Two Kids and a Coupon makes a great point that it would be an easy project to cook up with your kiddos! And they sound so yummy!!!

First up is Krystle from Baking Beauty with a recipe for Buckeye Brownies. Excuse me as I mop up the puddle of drool collecting on the floor in front of me. I have a little bit of an….obsession… with chocolate and peanut butter. It’s a thing. These would surely satisfy my worrisome addiction totally normal cravings.

Buckeye Brownies

For all that jewelry you will surely be receiving for Valentines Day… here’s a cute and very functional DIY Jewelry Organizer from Katie at View From the Fridge.
