Tout It Tuesday - #28

We had a great weekend here at Claiming Our Space.  My aunt and uncle were in town for part of the weekend.  The don't visit often since they live in Oregon so D and I had them, my parents, my mother-in-law, along with several other friends over for a fabulous dinner party on Sunday evening.  It was the perfect excuse to get out the china and plan a great menu.  We had a wonderful evening. There was lots of talking, laughing, eating, and drinking of wine. ( and now we have lots of great leftovers. My lunch today is bacon wrapped filet with herbed potatoes and dilled carrots. I think I will have the best lunch on my floor!) 

Now that I am already dreaming about lunch, it is time to show off this week's Features!

Michelle of Michelle's Tasty Creations shared her too cute candy corn vases complete with tutorial. I love these and am going to head to my local thrift stores to find some vases so I can whip up some of my own.

Leslie from Dishing with Leslie tempted me with her recipe for bacon wrapped lil' smokies.
Smoked meat? Bacon? Brown sugar? Oh my do these sound delicious! Do they also come with a treadmill?

Marija from Tousled Day shared how she glammed up a basic note book with a paper doily and some paint.  This could be a great stocking stuffer.

We are contiuing the bacon theme with this next feature.
Alyssa from What's Cooking, Love? shared Bacon Chicken Ranch Quesadillas. This one pretty much checks all the boxed in my tasty treat checklist.  Bacon, chicken, cheese, ranch plus being quick and easy.
