Thank You, Thank You, Copy Cats and Thrifted Finds...

I can't believe it's been over a week since I posted but then with Holy Week and Easter it was a very, very busy week!  It was a very emotional week for me and the Lord was working his magic....I am blessed!

So.......

A few weeks back one of the many giveaways I've entered was on Daniella Hayes blog Layers of Creativity...she was hosting a giveaway in honor of getting to 100 followers (Congrats Daniella)!!  The lovely prize was from Erin over at Peony Wire Works...three awesome wire covered jars and a strawberry wire artsy hangy thingy that I fell in love with.....the package came on Good Friday...I walked in the door and there it was on my kitchen table....



I was so excited....couldn't wait to rip into that bad boy....



And here they are!  Aren't they just the cutest things ever??  As soon as I saw them I knew what I wanted to do with them....and look at the cute little tag that Erin sent with......but wait....


The cutest ever....I have it hanging on my wooden boxes in the dining room right now.  So Erin....Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

I hope you all pop on over to Daniella's and Erin's and check out their amazing blogs!!

Saturday I thought I would surprise everyone and make this awesome Rice Krispie Pizza that I found copied over at Cookies and Cups so stinkin cute.  Off to the market (pure craziness) I went to get the supplies.  Of course when it's the day before Easter some of the candies can't be found....like the bunnys so here is my version.....



The kids called it PeeP Pizza....now this makes alot so it would be perfect for a party....the next time we make a version of this we're going to try switching out the Fruity Pebbles for Coco Pebbles...the icing is to die for but then again I'm a sucker for some good homemade icing..



SAAAAAWEEEEEEEEET.....

The other borrowed copied recipe that I found was over at Cozy Little Kitchen.  Leslie has kindly shared a family recipe for Hummingbird Cake and let me tell you it is one of the most DELISH cakes I've had the pleasure of eating.  Now when you visit Leslie's blog you will see how pretty she did her cake and she gives you step by step directions.  Me....being the Last Minute Louie that I am waited until after church on Sunday...yup I really did....to bake this cake!  I made mine in a 9 X 13 pan.  Generously buttered the pan (didn't use parchment), added the chopped pecans to the icing (OMGoodness is it good icing) and dotted the top with a few whole ones.




I wish I would have taken a picture of the cake in it's whole but when I say I'm a last minute Louie....I iced this cake and we flew out the door.  What I can tell you is that this cake was a HUGE hit!!  Thank you Leslie for sharing!!

Now....

Just a quick couple of shots of my last Wednesday's GW finds.....everything you see only cost me $6.00 and change......



The bigger bunny is a pitcher.  I love the little white ceramic rabbit and his friend next to him will be used next year.  LOVE the basket...was thinking about painting it but I really like the green.  I think I'm going to use it outside and put flowers in it.  It's wire so it will most likely go on our fence.  The utensil is one of many older looking kitchen tools that I have been collecting...I will show the collection at a later date!


































I hope you all had a blessed Easter.  Thank you all so much for stopping by and leaving such nice comments on my posts.

Hugs,

"MeMe" Sue
