Sweet Treats & Swanky Stuff will not be happening this week, sorry for any inconvenience!  I am in the middle of transferring my blog to WordPress.org  – but this means that next week my link party will be back, and better than ever!

I thought I would still share a couple of my favorite links from last week though – I have also pinned them to my Sweet Treats & Swanky Stuff board and I will share them with Facebook fans!

Command Center from Kaminski’s Creations: This post shows how to turn a “bunch of junk from goodwill” into a smart and organized “command centre”.

Pumpkin Better Than Disneyland Pie from Busy Mom’s Helper: Oh my this looks heavenly!  If I hadn’t just started a diet today I would be running to the store for ingredients.

 

Thank you so much for stopping by today, please come back next week to a {hopefully!} improved link party!

linkpartyrules

We had so many wonderful projects/recipes linked up last week, it was really hard to choose!  Here are my favorite links from last week:

Sweetest Treats

Caramel Banana Cream Pie

Caramel Banana Cream Pie – from Busy Mom’s Helper:  You cannot tell me that you don’t want to eat an entire plate of this right now!  It just looks incredible and probably tastes incredible too!  And you know what?  No weird ingredients, it is all stuff that you can find and work with easily.

dissapearing double strawberry cookies

Disappearing Double Strawberry Cookies – from A Handful of Everything – Wow fresh strawberries baked inside of cookies, and then covered in strawberry frosting, yumm!  This sounds like the perfect spring time treat.

Swankiest Stuff

Lovely-Panties-Underwear-SergerPepper (19)

Lovely Panties from Old T-Shirts – From Serger Pepper – how much fun is this sewing tutorial?  Serger Pepper gives a great step by step tutorial and free pattern for size 4/5 panties.  You can re-purpose an old t-shirt or use new material if you like.  I am totally making some!

IMG_2212

Earth Day Repurposing An Old Suitcase – from Kaminski’s Creations – This sweet little keepsake suitcase has gotten a complete upgrade.  She created it using an old suitcase, spray paint, scrapbook paper and mod podge.  It looks gorgeous!  She also re-does the interior with fabric and…there is more, she shows us what she is creating to put inside the suitcase but I don’t want to spoil it.  You should go have a read for yourself, it’s a great project!

Now let’s party!  And if you feel so inclined to grab a button, please be my guest.

Here are my favorite links from last week:

Sweetest Treats

Cherry Balls Inside sq wm

Kirsebaerkugler from Danni (Silo Hill Farms) on Inspiration Cafe – This recipe is for a traditional Danish dessert and it looks yummy!  It also doesn’t require a ton of ingredients, I will have to try it out!

build-bento-bar-partyDiana is back with some more bento fun – This Build Your Own Bento Bar post by Diana Rambles looks like an entertaining and tasty party!  She also linked up Part 2 of her Bento Basics series, to be honest I had a hard time picking which of these great posts to feature, I just love Diana’s bento lunch tips!

Swankiest Stuff

duck-cloth-spring-wreathI completely love all of the color in this Duck Cloth Spring Wreath by Made In A Day, I could definitely see this on my front door!  And that rustic looking bucket handle is just perfect.  This is a great tutorial if you would like to try your hand at making your own.

Birthday-Party-Collage-1024x749

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles birthday by Girl In The Garage: Such a colorful birthday!  I adore how all of the rainbow colors are pulled together in the banner, cupcakes, and even the airplane sign.  It looks like fun was had by all – aren’t those birthday boys gorgeous?

19 Apr

sweettreatslinkparty

Does anyone else feel like this past week went by WAY too fast?  And then there was that horrible nastiness in Boston, simply heartbreaking to see what people are capable of. It seems like I was just posting  Sweet Treats & Swanky Stuff #7 which, by the way, broke the record for link ups again!  Two weeks in a row, which means that this party is starting to grow – thank you for coming back each week!   Thank you for joining us today, link up your awesome projects, and don’t forget to have a look at some of the other great links too!

Here are my favorite links from last week:

Sweetest Treats

105_0091

Diary of a Mad Mama was back with another one of her amazing 49 cent Refashions.  This time she shared how she turned a pair of loose and baggy GAP dress pants into a very stylish dress…I would totally wear this!

IMG_4903

Jewelry Storage from Kaminski’s Creations: Do you have lots of beautiful jewelry that you forget to wear because it’s hidden in a box?  Here is a great and innovative DIY solution.  This post will show you how to turn some old spoon racks into a necklace holder and a picture frame into a jewelry holder that you will love to display!

Swankiest Stuff

IMG_8232

Oh wow, don’t these look amazing???  Banana Bread Blondies from The Plaid and Paisley Kitchen  : Vanilla bean icing slathered over a banana bread cake, I am totally drooling over this!

Cinnamon Cherry Bomb Pop close pm

Cherry Bomb Pops In Three Flavors by The Fresh Juniper – I have to admit that when I saw this link up, I immediately had to go check it out – and it did not disappoint!  There are three different flavors of “Bomb Pops” Smokin’ Hot Cayenne, Cinnamon, and Toasted Coconut.  Each pop has a maraschino cherry inside, there is soft chewy caramel, chocolate, all kinds of goodness!  Plus the stick is actually a pretzel dipped in white chocolate – totally incredible!

Cadbury Spring S’More Mix from Chatting Over Chocolate – I know Easter is over, but this would still make a great evening, who wouldn’t love roasting marshmallow bunnies and creating s’mores with them!  Too cute, and  a very nice presentation too.

Here is a great idea from Diana Rambles: Zebra Mane Hoodie.  This post includes an easy to follow tutorial so that you can create your own – there are lots of possibilities with this project, I am thinking of using this to create a My Little Pony hoodie for my little one.

Seasoned_Pizza_Crust_Bread-300x300

This looks so delicious!  Seasoned Pizza Crust Bread from Plucky’s Second Thought.  This is exactly the type of appetizer that my husband and I like to order at restaurants, now we can make it ourselves.  Thanks Jess!
