Feature Friday! (Were you featured ?)


Grab a featured button because you all are "sizzlin hot"!

Wow it took me a few days but I made it through all of the links from our first Party Mindie Style link up.  I still can't believe how much fun our first party together was.  I didn't feel shy or awkward at all and nobody double dipped lol.  I was so tickled by the turn out and quality of links.  So forgive me if I couldn't narrow it down to just one or two.  I wish I could feature all of you,   however I have narrowed  it down to a  handful, well make that two handfuls of favorites.

This Roasted Sweet Potato Salad from They Call Me Hypo had this Hungry Hypo Salivating.

These Bacon Wrap Ups with two of my favorites, bacon and cream cheese, sound like little savory bites of heaven.  Not to mention the fun Chopped party they had at Wayward Girls Crafts

These Nutter Butter Flip Flop cookies from Easy Baked are so perfect for a summer fun treat.  I must admit I am a sucker for Nutter Butters.
Rrrrrrrr........ how about something a little sweet and spicy with these incredible boudoir cookies by
The Enchanted Oven.  I am pretty sure my husband would be enchanted with these.

The 36th Avenue made this huge beautiful and most importantly sentimental subway art.  What I love most about this is that it tells a story of the 13 places they have lived in the last 13 years of their happy marriage. What a journey that must have been and what a gorgeous way to share it.

Petals and Sunshine made the most adorable felt food.  My toddler would love to play with these and I love that there is now bacon that exist that won't end up on my thighs.

Can you believe this pretty necklace is made out of pasta, it looks like beads.
 Suzy's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom really impressed me with this one.

At Bacon Time you will probably notice I like to do a lot of earth friendly up cycled projects.  I also love flowers, rosettes, lace, and buttons.  So it should come as no surprise that I just love this up cycled quilt pillow by Cherished Treasures.

Fabric Bows and More
Fabric Bows and More blog is one I am thrilled to be following since finding them at our link party.  You will find over 300 free bow tutorials at this lovely blog.

Besides great recipes, crafts, and blogs there were some great give aways linked up too (I know because I entered every single one!)  I think one of my favorites would have to be this give away for a beautiful hand made tote and apron by Sew Much 2 Luv.  If you hurry you can still get in on the action, today is the last day to enter.

Speaking of give aways, I actually won this pretty that was linked up at the party last week.  It pays to play, so enter those give aways folks.  Thanks again Life in the Thrifty Lane for this wonderful give away. 

Thank you all again for coming to my first party! I personally visited each and every link (this was not a quick task with over 300 links) not that I am complaining, on the contrary I am as happy as a stuffed pig.  I hope this weeks party is bigger and better.  The link up will start running every Friday evening and on through till Sunday Night, hope to see you there.
