What a busy week! Linking up with Tara to share what I've been making!
This week I made up my Dad's meatballs - it was super hot and I didn't want to cook. It's the easiest recipe, but it's so yummy that my boys eat 2+ servings at a sitting. 3 ingredients thrown in the crockpot... frozen meatballs and equal parts of chili sauce and grape jelly. Just put on low for a few hours and it becomes bubbly and delicious!
My sister bought her first town home this past week. I am so proud of her! It was built in the late 1980's and some of the decorating choices weren't exactly what she wanted. :) I helped out at her house all week long... cleaning, organizing, moving boxes, unpacking boxes, installing new flooring in her pantry, new corkboard on her shelves, contact paper in drawers, making trips to Home Depot for new toilet seats, etc... The flooring above is actually peel and stick heavy tiles. It could have been grouted, but we decided to just put it directly next to each other. What a difference it made!
My home made it is actually for my backyard. I saw an idea on Pinterest, and wanted to make something that meant something for my family. All in all the project was super cheap - just little stakes, some outdoor paint, and a stencil. When it was all done, I decided I wanted to hang it up, so I used a staple gun with garden wire to make a loop at the top - stapling each stake twice - one on each side. The Pinterest idea had them nailed into a board to stick in the ground, but I was afraid the nails would split the stakes so I went with the staple gun.
