Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #416

Messy Messy Fail - My car, oh my goodness.  My excuse is that during the school year I am transporting to young boys and now a baby multiple times a day.  The snacks I find stashed under the seats is disgusting.......

Tidy Victory - I finally collected seeds from the fun pumpkins I've had sitting on the back deck since November! :). I got tiny orange pumpkins, small white, yellow & green, goblin and square pink pumpkin seeds.  Now I need to figure out if I should pre-sprout them or just plant then directly outside.

This Week's Features

Once upon a time I was shopping the Walmart clearance section and found a bath bomb mold for 25 cents.  Have I made any bath bombs yet with it?  Of course not!  But here's a tutorial for Aromatherapy Shower Steamers DIY that I could try out- no excuses Katie!

Seriously, I am really about as cheap as they get.  I will shop around for ONLY the best deals, heck I even penny shop at Dollar General!  Check out this list of 10 Extreme Cheapskate Budget Money Saving Tips You Won't Be Embarrassed To TryLet's just say that according to that list, I understood the assignment. :)

I have never made this dish in my life, however I have eaten it several times.  Never was I disappointed, and with a German husband I should probably figure this one out.  Check out this recipe for Baked Chicken Schnitzel from Comfort Spring Station. 

Our very own Sinea from Ducks N' a Row has come up with this ADORABLE post of 13 Amazing Planters For Your Flower Garden.  As a gardener I am always on the look out for cool containers and features to add to my garden.  I also love that many of the ideas are reusing and repurposing which is better for the environment!


I am a good Polish girl - I typically make placek Easter bread in the spring.  However I am not a good Irish girl (half and half, people) - I have never made Irish Soda Bread either.  Let's try this recipe from Premeditated Leftovers, I bet we won't be disappointed!

Did you know we have a Pinterest Board where all features are saved to?  Save our pins to your own board for your future reference, easy peasy!
