The Most Popular Shares from Last Week’s Party:



My Featured Picks

Here are a couple of the shares from last week that I absolutely LOVED!  Make sure you visit the other hosts too to see their featured picks….it might be you! :)

I guess it’s because my son is only a (nearly) two-year-old and hasn’t started school yet (and because I’ve been out of school a lonnnng time!), but it never occurred to me that TEACHERS give STUDENTS gifts at the end of the year….I always thought it was the other way around!  That’s why I love this idea from Melly Moments (who’s a former teacher, naturally): End of Year Gifts for Kids from Teachers!  She also provides a FREE printable….so any teachers out there, head on over there and check it out! {PIN IT!}

Glow BP2

And you know I love me a good upcycling project, and this Before & After Key Rack to Jewelry Organizer by The Apple Street Cottage is amazing!  I would have never looked at the original item and thought it could be a chic jewelry organizer, but the pictures don’t lie! {PIN IT!}
