Megan's Picks

1. DIY Floorcloth via Design Share. When I saw this idea I think my eyes popped out of my head. It was brill! I absolutely love it and I can't wait to spruce up dining room with this. 

2. Ice Shot Glasses via Intimate Weddings. This is a great idea for parties and entertaining. Nothing gets a conversation started fasted that alcohol in ice shot glasses. I sense a dinner party coming on...

3. Owl Pillow Boxes via Kerry's Craft Blog. We all know I love owls, that is not something I hide. (I mean obviously. You guys do see the blog layout, right?) I squealed so loud with "OMG these are SOOOO cute!" I think I made a couple of Alex's friends lose their concentration on their card game. But seriously though, aren't these little guys frickin' adorable!

Emily's Picks

1. Linguine with Shrimp Scampi via The Recipe Club. OMG y'all how delicious is that? I wish you guys could hear the way my tummy is grumbling wanting to eat that immediately. Definitely going to have to make that for dinner this next week. 

2. Faux Tin Tiles via Suzy's Artsy-Crafty SitcomWow! Seriously, do you know how much money I am about to save? This post blew my mind how easy it is to create something that's what like $20 a piece at home depot? Love this post with a passion! 

3. DIY Cordless Lamp via View Along The WayThis is a little bit technical but I know a good husband who could totally do this for me! And she's completely right, I always want lamps where there is no outlet for some reason. This post is totally going to help me while decorating my house. 

Melissa's Picks

1. Fabric Headboard via All Things Thrifty. I've always wanted try something like this. Fabric headboards are a great way to spruce up your room and I personally think it gives your bed a classy look.

2.  Pebble Stain Glass Window via Knick Knacks and Ric Rac. Great way to achieve a mosaic look for your windows and at a low cost. It's an easy way to add a unique touch to any front door/ windows around the house, etc.

3. No Bake Chewy Granola Bars via Back to the Cutting Board. I normally end up taking granola bars to work with me since I get hungry around mid shift. I'd love to start making my own and taking them instead of wasting money on store brand ones. Great recipe! 

And that bring this week's favorite find to a close for this week. I hope everyone enjoyed. And I hope everyone is super excited about all the new additions to Whimsically Homemade! I know we are.
