Somehow Rice Krispie treats cut into heart shapes and dipped in white chocolate scream “I love you!”
I called our son and asked if wanted to come over and help me make Valentine treats. When he told me his girlfriend loves rice krispie treats, I knew he would be here.
I gathered all of the ingredients;
1 Box of Rice Krispie Cereal
1 Pkg of Miniature Marshmallows
Heart Shaped Cookie Cutters
Cello Treat Bags
I called him at least twice to confirm we were still on…I’m not exactly sure why I was so excited about making these simple treats…I think it may have had something to do with the fact that I have never made rice krispie treats in my life.
The heart-shaped treats were cut out, dipped in white chocolate, placed in cello bags and sweet Valentine love notes placed on each one. I hope his girlfriend enjoys getting them as much as we enjoyed making them…
Happy Valentines Day!
Maybe you are like me and you need a little help putting away your Christmas decorations…Every year I tell myself, “Self…this is the year we are going to organize the Christmas decorations as we put them away”…I also have had grand visions of actually putting the containers away in a manner that allows me to easily access the things I need first, then second…you get the idea. Year after year I have grand plans but no real plan in place.
If you are in need of a plan of attack visit “Putting Away Christmas” over at Just Organized, they have a plan and it looks like a good one. I also want to give credit where credit is due…I actually saw this link on the Happy Housewife blog…Check her out for some great posts on simple living, Organizing in 365 and diy…I wish you JOY while putting away Christmas!
I purchased two chairs on the last day of an Estate Sale…The minute I saw them I knew what I would do with them.
Then I hit a snag…finding the time to do a seemingly simple project.
My biggest dilemma was whether or not to paint the chairs…painting a chair is not as easy as it sounds…there are nooks, crannies, spindles and carved legs to deal with…and truth be told my attention span is more suited to painting a box.
This morning I made the decision to move forward with the project…no paint, just recover the seat cushions.
Here it is an hour later and the project is finished and I am drafting my blog and ready to link up to Miss Mustard Seeds Furniture Friday Blog…
I am really happy that I did not paint the chairs…they look great with the original finish and the certified organic burlap coffee bag seat cover. New dilemma…keep them or take them to shop?
