Spring Has Sprung!

Pin It!
This week over at Gussy’s the Inspiration Workshop prompt is Spring!

Yesterday the temperature went way up to 54ºF here and the snow has started to melted away finally! There’s still a bit lingering but soon it will all be gone. Spring is one of my favorite seasons, especially when you can smell the air changing.

Here are a few things that caught my eye this week while thinking of the warmer weather to come.

Some bright flowers to welcome spring.

Dreaming of Organizing

This week over at Gussy’s the prompt is Organization!

Organizing, sorting, and just general cleaning up is something that is always there waiting to get done! Here are a few ideas I hope to use one day.

These wall shelves are so neat and everything has a place!

I really like these white bookshelves.

And more white in this bright office!

Here’s a great idea to organize your jewellery.

If you knit and have lots of wool like me I’m sure you’ll want to use this idea.

And one last thing, to gain more space in the garage.

Decorating Progress

We put our tree up (as well as a few other decorations) this week, just in time for the linky party at Gussy’s!

This year we have a new ornament from our recent trip:

I had some extra Christmas balls and ended up placing them in a holder. This brown tin holder was the bottom of a gift basket last year.

I had to buy this cute gift bag when we were in Hawaii, although I may end up keeping it!

I still have a few more things to do, but it’s beginning to look like Christmas!

Christmas treat!

This weekend will probably be the start of the Christmas baking in our house. I was looking through my recipes deciding what to start with and dug out one of our family favorites. They are super easy and quick, as well as very tasty!

Mars Bars Squares

Ingredients:

  • 4 Mars bars
  • 1/2 cup butter or magarine
  • 3 cups Rice Krispies
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine

Instructions:

  1. Melt the Mars bars in a pot then mix the Rice Krispies in, then transfer to a well greased 9×9 pan.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter for the topping, then pour it on top.
  3. Cool in the fridge then cut into pieces and serve.

Christmas Decorating

Is it too early to be looking at ideas for Christmas? Over the weekend there were quite a few neighbours on our street hanging up their Christmas lights so I guess the time has come to start thinking about decorating for the holidays. This week the prompt from Gussy was Dining Room; here are a few ideas I had in mind for the season.

Baking Time

It’s Inspiration Workshop time again! This week our prompt from Gussy was Favorite Recipes.

I recently checked out an assortment of cookbooks from the library. Lots of new recipes to go through and hopefully I’ll find some new favorites in them!

In the meantime though here are a few of my favorite baking items.

First is the best cookie sheet I’ve used, it’s from Williams-Sanoma. My cookies bake evenly and never burn, even if I leave them an extra minute or two…

Also from Williams-Sanoma is this cool ruffled pie dish.

I also saw these fun icing bottles. Apparently they are for kids, but they look fun to use!

Happy Baking!
