Crush of the Week – Think Pink Features!

Yay!! It’s time for the Crush of the Week post – and it’s Fridaaayyyyyy!
Woo and two hoo’s!

Well – I am seriously in love with this little 3 Tiered Tray by Melissa at Daisy Mae Belle!! It’s all industrial and awesome!
I need it. For cookies and other assorted treats.

I’m all about the organization this week – so I’m running with it before the feeling wears off.
I think this little Embroidery Floss organizer idea from Sarah at Renewed Upon a Dream is so pretty!
And I don’t know about you – but I’m much more likely to keep things tidy if they are cute!

Um – hi genius idea! Laura Beth from A Step in the Journey linked up her DIY Baker’s Twine tutorial! Let me tell you – this is crazy easy and so fun! And yes, I already have enough baker’s twine to create matching end tables out of twine (hi Anthro, great idea huh?) – but I still want to try this!

This is just plan fabulous. Ann from Make the Best of Things waved her magic wand and turned two nightstands into a new kitchen island!
And you have to go look at the other photos – the top is old pages from a Betty Crocker Cookbook! So stinking awesome!!

Good Gracious – we have S’mores Cupcakes from Katie at Little Beckie Homecky next!! Look at those toasty marshmallow tops!

Yay! If you were featured and would like a button – they are here! Grab one and show it off!

Highlights of the Week:

Getting my organizing on . . .
If you like the FT Facebook page – you probably saw that I was able to get some cleaning of my craft closet done! Whew!!
I’m not sure how long it will last – but it’s fun just kind of looking in there and admiring all those pretty fabrics!!

On a related note . . .  now that Instagram is available to us Android users . . . I am so loving it!!
Are you there? It’s so fun to be able to see what everyone is doing during the day, eating for lunch, shopping for, creating – and more!
(I’m @flamingotoes if you want to follow along!!)

Weird Searches  – are you ready?
•    First up – we had someone searching for “raw bracelet pattern“. Is that kind of like Lady Gaga’s meat dress? Cause that’s not going to happen. Now a cooked bacon bracelet . . . . well.
•    We also had someone land here with the search “how do you make a flamingo angry“. This is highly discouraged. But if you’re going to do it, I would say that shooting a Nerf dart at her Every Time she walks in the room could work. Maybe. Probably.
•    Last up we had someone searching for something “baskety“. This person I like. She has obviously been to Craft English 101 – and is probably also familiar with terms like “ruffley” and ” rustic-y”.
I think we need to start up our own dictionary.

Okey dokie – have a fabulous weekend!!


  • I am drooling over that 3-tiered tray!! I love the rustic-ness. :)

    I’m going to be waiting to see this cooked bacon bracelet…

    “Baskety”. Yep, that’s a keeper!! Fab features, as always. I may need to get some of that bakers twine. Gasp! I know, I don’t have any. Tragedy right?

    Have a fantastic Flamingo filled weekend.

    Thanks for featuring my nightstands turned kitchen island! I appreciate how you are so consistent with your linky party and also consistently fabulously creative. You rock! I still wear the earrings I bought from your Etsy shop plus the pair you gifted me while I was deep in chemo. Thanks, sweet lady.

    So seeing this post made me smile! Thanks for including my DIY Baker’s Twine. It’s really quite a round, up!! I LOVE the 3 tiered tray :o)

  • Baskety? I love it! I was looking at the island made with nigh stands and that is a tall night stand. I guess they make it that kind for high beds (like mine). lol
