Neighborhood Yard Sale Heaven

Surreywood neighborhood yard sale
Today was my community's annual neighborhood yard sale.  More than thirty homes wake up bright and early to set up shop by 8 am.  It may go without saying that I look forward to this sale more than any other thrifting event in the Spring.  Despite my propensity for sleeping in on Saturday mornings, I was up and out of the house by 7:50.

Even though many of the houses are within walking distance of mine, I took the car so that I would have a place to store all my finds.  It's a good thing I did, since I had a full load by the time I returned home at 10:30.

Take a gander at my finds:

Successful Failure: Homemade Mayonnaise

One of my goals for my Pinterest Challenge was to try my hand at homemade mayonnaise.  This was my pin from Drizzle & Dip, and it looks amazing.

I only wish I had such fanciness in my home.
My son was gracious enough to help me out with this project, as this project requires lots and lots of hand whisking.

Easy tutorial

As part of my Pinterest Challenge, I decided to create milk glass look-alikes from some clear glass vases that I didn't really like and rarely used.

Liebster Award #2!


I am pleased to say that I've been nominated for the Leibster Award again- how nice is that?  I have actually been nominated by two different ladies (by the same name even), and I'm going to put the two nominations into one post.  Please take some time to visit  Rachel at t-shirt & jeansss and Rachel at Always Sparkling if you have the chance- I'd love to give back to them, since they tossed a nomination my way.
