The Ultimate Pinterest Party Week 228

Thanks for visiting our link party this week! I'm excited to see what you great bloggers share today.

December is here and we had our first snowfall this week. I love the stillness of the world when fresh snow blankets the ground. I'm not ready for such cold weather yet though! It's this time of year I miss living in South Carolina, where we could visit the beach the week of Christmas. There is lots of beauty here in Utah though with the lovely mountains.

Thumbprint cookie recipe with maraschino cherries
Try these buttery smooth cookies surrounded by crunchy pecans and filled with a cherry half. My recipe for Thumbprint Cookies with Cherries is sure to please this holiday season.

I love to drive out in the country to see the seasons changing. When I saw this bright red barn against a field of snow and the mountains, I had to stop and take in the beauty of the scene.

Thumbprint Cookies with Cherries

Thumbprint cookies are such a nice holiday treat! These cookies are buttery and almost melt in your mouth. The chopped pecans covering the cookie add a nice little crunchy texture.

easy thumbprint cookie recipe with pecans and maraschino cherries

Traditional thumbprint cookies are topped with jam, but in my family we always use a maraschino cherry. Every Christmas when I was growing up, we would make these cookies. I've continued that tradition with my own family.

The Ultimate Pinterest Party Week 227

Happy Friday and welcome back to our link party! We took a break last week to enjoy time with family over the holiday weekend. Now my thoughts turn to Christmas. There is plenty of time to finish shopping and decorating though. During this weeks party, I hope there are inspiring links to holiday foods, decorations, and tips.

Book Review ~ Make and Give Home Apothecary

Who doesn't enjoy a little pampering? Having some spa time is a great way to relax. You can personalize your bath bombs or salts when you make your own. Making sweet smelling spa items for yourself or to give as gifts doesn't have to be complicated and intimidating though.

The sun shining during these autumn days has been calling me outside to take walks each day. I love the crunch of the dry leaves.

Cute and Easy Wood Baby Blocks

Adding cute decor pieces to your childs room doesn't have to be expensive. You can make your own decorated blocks for a baby so easily and with just a few crafting supplies!

cute and easy diy wood baby blocks


A few months ago I hosted a baby shower for my friend Laura from the blog Watts + Walsh. I wanted to make a few cute items to use as decorations at the shower. A few years ago I found little blocks at a thrift store, but they weren't very cute. I decided that a quick crafty makeover was called for.

Tomato Pie

Fresh ripe tomatoes, colorful leaves of basil, sharp cheese, and a flakey crust combine to make a rich Tomato Pie. This savory pie is a wonderful addition to brunch, a ladies lunch, or dinner. Serve with a veggie filled green salad and some tasty fruit for a nice and light meal.

If you have a bountiful harvest of ripe tomatoes in your garden, you might be wonderfing what you can use them for. There are always the usual recipes - salsa, tomato sauce, and stewed tomatoes. Try this pie for a unique recipe full of wonderful flavor.

Fall is here my friends! The leaves are starting to change, apples are ripening on trees, and the evenings are crisp. This week I have spent part of the evenings watching the stars come out and I even had to put on a sweatshirt! I do love fall so much!

tips to host a party for ladies at Halloween


Thank you for participating in The Ultimate Pinterest Party!

Each week we work to make this party effective for you without being majorly time-consuming for us hosts. Last week, two people emailed me to say the pins that they linked up were half-way down the Pinterest board, and so were hard to find. We would have never known this since for us, they appeared at the top of the board.

Janet from Try It, Like It had a suggestion that we are going to implement. For each party, we will make a new section for that weeks party. We will try to link to the correct section for each week's party, but you can also find the section by going to The Ultimate Pinterest Party board. This week's section will say, "Week 218, The Ultimate Pinterest Party." Above the Pins, you will see the sections. Right now, there are no pins in that section. We will add them to the section board on Saturday morning.  Hopefully, this will help you find the right pins to pin from the current weeks party. Thank you for working with us as try to find the easiest way to do this party. If you have any other tips, please let us know!

Easy DIY Shoe Bench

How do you organize shoes at your house? Are they in a pile next to the back door? Or in bins? Maybe your shoes are like mine used to be.....scattered in closets, one under the table and one by the door, or both hiding. Easily keep track of and organize your shoes with this DIY shoe bench.

We spent a total of $10 to make this easy bench. Yes, only $10! It was a quick project that my husband designed so we would stop tripping over runaway shoes around the house. It took him about 30 minutes to put together. Quick, cheap, and cute! What a great project.
