Fruit Kabobs

So remember my other pineapple post?

I finally got to try out the new pineapple technique!
I like saying technique.
I feel like I have some sort of skill now.
But not really.

Anyhooo...
I signed up to bring fruit to a baby shower a few weeks ago.
So I brought FRUIT KABOBS!
Also known as FRUIT SKEWERS!
Also known as Yuuuuummmmmm!

So I used my technique ;)
It takes a while to do...
But I love how it looked and it saved some pineapple goodness!

Too bad I had to then chop it up.
But the Fruit Kabobs were delicious!

So many scrumptious colors & flavors!
Great easy party food :)


ps- I like to say Kabobs like I'm from Wisconsin. It makes it more fun. Kabaaabs don't cha know!.

I get it from my momma...

Like my mother and her mother before her...
I've inherited the love of chunky jewelry.

Since it would have been my Gama's b-day this month,
it's only appropriate to blog about one of the things I knew she loved...
Accessories.

She always had accessories.
And they were usually chunky, bright, and fabulous.
Just like her. :)

Well, I've had a huge problem
How do I store all these chunky necklaces?

I spent a ridiculous amount of time a few moments on Pinterest.
Found these great ideas for jewelry organization.

But I'd have to have a heck of a lotta hooks.
So that ain't gonna work. :(

Then I went to HomeGoods.
And had a BRILLIANT idea.
Use a hand towel stand!!

Works great!
And I even used a little tiered stand for bracelets and things.


No hooks, it's easy to slide off, and I can pile on the big necklaces.

My Gama would be so proud! :)
