I Spy Sunday | I’m Lovin’ It Features


Each week I’m blown away and inspired by all the crafts, diys, recipes and more that are linked up to I’m Lovin’ It.  Every weekend I like to feature some of the posts that “caught my eye”.  It’s hard to believe I’ve hosted this weekly party for 3 years now!  I thought it might be time for a change in how I do the  I’m Lovin’ It Features post just a bit, and change it to I Spy Sundays.

Some weeks there may be a theme to what I spy, but other weeks it will just be random goodness that I liked for what ever reason, and I thought I’d share a bit about WHY it caught my eye.

So lets take a peek at what I spy from this weeks party………….

I spy Sunday I'm Lovin' It Features at TidyMom


1.  After living with dark grungy country decor for many years, my poor home is SCREAMING for color and light.  Little by little we are getting there, this Airy and Colorful Living Room makes my heart sing.

2.  Chalkboard and Inspirational quotes are all the rage on Pinterest.  I LOVE how Heather brought them to life on her kitchen wall with this Vinyl Chalkboard Art.  I think I need to start looking for chalkboards and plug in my Silhouette.

3.  You may know I love sweet pastries for breakfast, and cinnamon rolls rank right at the top as one of my favorites.  I about jumped out of my chair and right into the kitchen when I saw these Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls!

4.  You know I”m all about EASY projects, so I fell in love with not only how easy but how beautiful this Image Transfer Tray turned out!  Definitely putting this on my “to-do list”  I think it would be perfect in my family room I’m working on, if I ever get a new coffee table – or just paint the one I have. – Either way, this tray would be perfect!

5.  I’m a BIG fan of avocados and I’m always looking for new ways to eat them.  B.A.T. {Bacon Avocado and Tomato} Pasta Salad with Avocado Dressing will be appearing in my belly VERY soon.

6.  Now that I got my new couches, I’m excited to change my pillows through out the year.  This tutorial will guide me on How to Sew a Pillow Cover with Zippers so I can easily change the look when I want!

7.  Banana Cream Pie has always been one of my favorite cream pies, and this Banana Cream Pie with Coffee Caramel takes it to a another level. WOW!

8.  Just one more reason to be excited that garage sale season is ready to start back up!  I’m putting a cooler like this on my hunting list!  How fabulous would a Recycled Western Cooler be at any summer bash?!

9.  I’m all into fun necklaces these days.  They can make such a statement to any outfit from a t-shirt and jeans to a dress.  I have no excuse not to make my own with these step-by-step instructions for this Easy Rosette Bib Necklace – I’m pretty sure I need one in yellow and one in mint!

10.  I can’t tell you how much I look forward to seeing good fresh locally grown corn on the cob in the grocery stores!  The next batch I grill will be slathered in Chipoltle Butter and Lime Salt!  My mouth is just watering thinking about it!

11.  This sweet treat combines two of my loves, blondies and pop-tarts, for Chewy S’mores Blondies.  I can taste them now! and no campfire needed!
