Friday Favorites – Week 11


Happy Friday! I hope you all had a fabulous week.  I must report that ours went pretty well.  Last week they had Founder’s Week at my hubby’s work (basically anniversary week), and he met their projected sales goal.  This is awesome considering that he’s only been there a few months (not to mention that we really needed the money), and he’ll get an award too!  Also, hubby took his insurance liscensing exam this week, and he passed! Yay! (We celebrated by going to Applebee’s, one of our favorites places!)
Well, I hope you all have a glorious Mother’s Day weekend! If you’re still looking for Mother’s Day Gifts, please check out my Spring Gift Guide featuring fabulous shops and Mother’s Day gifts (all from handmade/mompreneur shops!).
And now let’s take a look at his week’s featured posts!  If you’re featured, please grab a “Featured” button for your blog! Thanks!!
Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE bread! Needless to say, I was very intrigued by this Everyday Oatmeal Bread from The Local Cook.

Here’s a fun idea for the yard!  Make your own elf houses! The kids will love it, and the yard will look so whimsical!  Marvelously Messy has as a great tutorial and some adorable examples for you.
As you know, I adore cupcakes! And I love these May Day cupcakes from Singing With Birds.  Aren’t they festive? And so fun and colorful too!

And here’s another sweet treat!  Wouldn’t you love a slice of this? This Berry Birthday Cake was baked up by Avril at Baking and Creating with Avril.  Scrumptious!
And finally, something cute that also makes the house smell good!  Krishinka at Krishinka’s Vintage Treasures has some adorable items in her shop! Her most recent blog post featured a few items, including this adorable heart sachet! Go by and check her stuff out!
Now it’s time to link up your post for this week.  Please link up to your POST URL, not your blog.  And please link back to Simply Sweet Home, so that others can come by and link up!

  4. Morning Jerri! Just wanted to let you know that I've tried linking up a couple of times but some kind of an error occurs and my link doesn't show.
    This is the link to my post:

    I wonder if you could add it?

    Sorry for the trouble Jerri and have a wonderful mother's day!

    Yay, thanks for featuring me! The McLinky isn't working for me 🙁 but here's a carrot cookie recipe link

    since it has carrots in it you won't feel so guilty about eating cookies 🙂

    Ohhhhh I'm so honored to be part of your Friday Favorites this week!!! Merci beaucoup!

    Unfortunately, because I am relatively new to the "blogging world" I haven't been able to figure out how to transfer your "Friday Favorites" button to my blog…any suggestions?
