Whimsy Wednesdays 23

August 7, 2012 by Jenny Melrose

It’s Whimsy Wednesday!


I am so excited that you all stopped by to share with me tonight!  Do you notice anything different?  That’s right, I got a face lift and a new address!  I am over the moon happy and I am so thankful to Colleen from Paisley Boulevard who was SO patient with me and my finicky, bossy self.  Colleen is incredibly talented and I highly recommend her for any of your design needs!  I got home from BlogHer ’12 and this was the first change I knew I had to make.  I learned so much at BlogHer and I’ll be sharing later this week.  For now, let’s enjoy some features!

Trish from Mom on Timeout shared this scrumptious Chocolate Zucchini Cake.

Back for Seconds tantalized our tastebuds with her Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cookies .  You all know I’m a chocolate girl!

I’m absolutely in love with this Peachy Parrot from Jill over at Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons.  What toddler wouldn’t want to gobble up this fun snack?!

Karen from Quinton Wench dazzled us with her Great Ball of Twine.  This tutorial is perfect!

Marci from I Gotta Try That gave us a project to definitely give a try.  Just look how cute her Little Red Wagon is!

Dawn from DJ’s Sugar Shack shared some of her Recent Cakes.  Here’s a quick glimpse of her fishing cake.  You’ll have to hop over to see the rest.  They are super cute!

Lisa and Joey from Paintbrush and Screwdriver created a gorgeous Kitchen Island.  I just love the color!

I am super excited that you all stopped by to share your whimsies with little ‘ol me.

The Rules:

1. Follow me through GFC or Bloglovin’. I’d adore you forever and forever if you liked me on Facebook and Twitter and I’ll be posting my favorites throughout the week.  I’m also a pinning fiend.

    Hi Jenny! Thanks for hosting another super party. I’ve been working on my Google+ stuff and I think I understand it better. My problem was that the blog was under my personal account as was my goggle+. I added my PSB goggle to my personal G+ account and I think things are working better… I think…
    Anyway, have a super week!

    Your blog looks fantastic. I have been contemplating moving to Word Press, but I’m frighten by the thought of how much it work it might me to transfer. Is your SEO really supposed to improve… what other reason did you leave blogger? I would love to hear from you about this.
