Pin Ups: My Favourite Things This Week (and Giveaway Winner!)

And the giveaway winner is……. (drumroll)…… Fiona Smith!! Fiona chose the Sky Palette:

“Thank you for this!! I love the Forest palette, but my little guy would look smashing in the Sky palette. I’d knit the R&R hoodie… I was kinda waiting for the pattern actually! Thanks again!”

Hooray and congrats to Fiona!!! Thank you everyone for entering.

grilled cheese

I love this casual party idea- a grilled cheese buffet! great tips and recipes (such as Camembert Grilled Cheese with Strawberries and Balsamic Vinegar, and Creamy Pepper Grilled Cheese with Jalapenos and Bacon) in the link.


I love this pretty ponytail- great step by step instructions!  As soon as I no longer need to wear a hat, I’m totally going to rock this.

rolling pin

This is a very cute and clever idea for printing your own wrapping paper, by using a rolling pin and adding foam shapes to it.

green door

I’ve always had a soft spot for houses that have bright, contrasting front doors; but I never thought about trying it out inside the home- what a gorgeous hit of colour!


Did you know you can make gum drops at home, and that they actually look pretty easy?!  Man, I want to find some of these in my easter basket!

    Love the green door idea – I have a stepdau who is 7, and she’ll beg for a pink one for her bedroom. I’m thinking about doing my bedroom door in chalkboard paint – maybe start my day with an inspirational quote I can write on it, and end the day with some sarcastic written comment about how the day actually went?? 🙂

    Oh Wow!! Thank you so much Julie and Tanis!! I can’t wait to knit R&R Hoodie! I’ve also never won anything before… it’s exciting!
    Thank you!!!
