Spruce up your home with these adorable metallic quote pots.  They would make a great mini herb garden or teacher appreciation gifts too..  The ideas are endless. 



 Speaking of teacher appreciation gift ideas, check out these adorable Hero Teacher gift in a jar.   These would be fun for any kid to help make.



Strawberries just scream spring time.  Put them in a glass of sangria for this Strawberry Sangria recipe and you have yourself a springtime party.

We're checking out some of the freshest ideas for Spring this week--hope you enjoy them!



First up this gorgeous Peach Flavored Lemonade by Watch What U Eat. You know peach season is going to be here soon and once you've eaten your fill of fresh peaches it's always nice to have a plan to use them in new, unique ways.





Maybe it's time for a new side dish? Check out this tasty sounding recipe from Simply Stacie for Curried Lentil Rice. I'm always looking for new and interesting side dish ideas and this one looks awesome!


And if that isn't to your liking maybe you're looking for something completely new and different? Apparently it's an old recipe according to the Silver Foodie but I've never heard of Pineapple Au Gratin, have you? It's certainly interesting and I've got it pinned on my Must Make Food board on Pinterest.


And finally I've been on a fresh bread kick lately and this Italian Olive Loaf looks like something my whole family will enjoy. Thanks to Olives and Okra for sharing it with our Friday Frenzy Friends!

Upcycling a rug has been on my list 'to do' list for a long time. Our Peaceful Planet shows us the down low and it doesn't look hard, maybe only time consuming? What do you think??



Ohhhhhh I really need to do this too, Make your own Roman Shades from the Lou Lou Girls. It doesn't look too hard either, the directions are well written and  straightforward. SCORE!





And finally a great last minute list of April Fools tricks from Teach Mama, so many great jokes! And it's early enough that you take these and think about them and really take it up a notch although the brownies might not need to be taken anywhere except the neighbors house...HA!
