Whimsy Wednesdays 27

September 4, 2012 by Jenny Melrose

It’s Whimsy Wednesday!


I’m back to work starting today.  I cannot believe how fast the Summer flew.  I’m so ready for the Fall weather and activities though.  You all might notice that my sidebar has changed over and I’m so excited to introduce to all of you some amazing ladies throughout the month!  Thank you all so much for stopping by to share with us!

I absolutely love salsa!  This Restaurant Style Salsa by High Heels & Grills is a must try in my book.

As a mama and a teacher I’m all about organization, which is why I swooned when I saw this Kids Command Central by The Real Thing with the Coake Family.

We recently got a new camera and I’ve been working on my photography skills so when I saw Trish’s Ten Tips for Taking Better Food Photos over at Mom on Timeout, I immediately read and reread her post.

I recently found my newest blog to stalk and if you haven’t stopped over to see Kelly over at Smart School House, you definitely should.  I absolutely love her Class List using her Seasonal Frame.  She even has all the printables for you!

I’ve wanted to archive my posts for some time, but needed some direction as to how to organize it.  Well, no more excuses because Kelley from Miss Information walks us through with her Cleaning up the Archives post.

I fell absolutely in love with the Vintage Lace Pennant Banner made by Alecia from Chicken Scratch NY for her late September wedding.  The pennant is so versatile and elegant.

I adore these Homemade Blueberry Donuts by Camille from Growing Up Gabel, which are shaped in a heart.  I’ll definitely be pulling these out around Valentine’s Day or even for a little love reminder for Riley seeing as she’s off to daycare again.


If you were featured, please feel free to grab a button from my sidebar.  I am super excited that you all stopped by to share your whimsies with little ‘ol me.

The Rules:

1. Follow me through Google+ 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.
