Tout It Tuesday - #17

It's time for Tout It Tuesday - #17! 

Sorry for the delay in getting this week's party up. But better late than never right?
We had a power outage this morning and since I usually put the finising touches on Tout it Tuesday while drinking my coffee, no power was a bit of a hiccup. Truthfully, I think I may have been more upset by the lack of coffee versus the lack of internet. This is the 3rd time in so many weeks that the power has been off for more than an hour or two. It has been a very strange summer.

Power outages aside, it was a very relaxing week. Other than working in the yard and getting Wilbur II from the butcher, it was a quiet weekend. I didn't end up getting my craft on, but I am OK with that. All my planned projects will get done...eventually...if I live to be 100. :-D

Now it it time to check out this week's features!

The Thrifty Rebel made over a $5 bed tray magazine holder. Love the bright color!

This chocolate drizzled shortbread from A Flock in the City looks so delicious!

Tagana Rose created the most beautiful paper dress form gift decorations. They are so sparkley & gorgeous!

The Ease of Freeze showed how to make a delicious looking country meat pie. This is totally D's type of recipe.

I can't wait to see what people will be share this week and know that I will be inspired by everyone's projects and recipes. 

Just a few rules/guidelines.
