My Favourite Pins This Week
A wonderful weekend brunch idea – a delicious bacon and spinach quiche with a sweet potato crust! Tons of veg and very high in protein, I’ve also made this as a weeknight dinner, but only when I have time to start it an hour early- because this definitely takes a full hour to make. Pinterest link is here, and the full recipe post can be found here.
My mom makes these and they are my absolute favourite – salted milk chocolate and peanut butter blondies. I manage to eat most of a pan all by myself every time! Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post can be found here.
This beautiful braided planter is made by using clay to to make the braid, and applying it to a pot while it’s still malleable. Doesn’t it look fantastic? With a pretty plant tucked inside, this would be a great DIY gift idea, or just a pretty project for any time. Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY is here.
These fabric holiday napkins are made festive by the adorable iron-on design! The DIY post includes the download. You can make it at home with a printer, or bring it to a printing shop to print onto iron-on transfer paper. Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY can be found here.
For lovers of natural holiday decor, this evergreen start idea is so elegant and perfect for outdoor decor- you glue down greenery springs (boxwood, rosemary, etc.) onto stripes of wood glued into a star shape. While the post calls for balsam wood being cut, I recommend using popsicle sticks for small starts and chopsticks for bigger starts- so much easier and no wood cutting required. Pinterest link is here, and the original post can be found here.
Have a wodnerful weekend everyone! I need to finish my holiday shopping, and I think we are going to do some ice skating. What sort of activities are you getting up to?
