Drop Cloth and Lace Purse from Vintage, Paint and More. A granddaughters request and a love for drop cloth had Cathy creating this great purse.
DIY Tile Coasters at A Dose of Paige. Paige explains how to make these fabulous tile coasters. Sounds like a wonderful personalized gift for someone.
Hair Band Lollipops at Made In a Day. Kim has a free printable to make these cute pops, just in time for an alternative Valentines treat. 
Bacon and Garlic Clam Chowder at Kleinworth & Co. - Cold days are perfect for a hot bowl of chowder and Gina's husband has come up with this delicious version of Clam Chowder that is sure to hit the spot.
Chicken Pie Pockets at Southern Distinctions.  Brandyn came up with this savory recipe for Chicken Pie Pockets with a biscuit like crust and a healthy filling of vegetables and lean meats.
The Best Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookies at Priscillas. Priscilla shares a Levain Bakery knock-off recipe for some tempting chocolate cookies.
The Best Maple Croissant Bread Pudding Ever at Lou Lou Girls. Kimberly shares a delightful recipe for Bread Pudding using croissants that sounds amazing!
And finally, a recap of my share from the party - Chocolate Banana Smoothie.  I have a weakness for all things chocolate but wanted a healthier way to satisfy my cravings. I came up with this recipe that solved my dilemma.

  13. Hi Suzanne, I have always added a link back to you in my post but just realized your first guideline states to add the button!!! Sorry, guess I need to READ guidelines a little closer. Anyways, I always enjoy your features, your parties and reading your blog! Thanks for hosting!

    1. A text link is fine too. I have update the wording, so it doesn't sound like 'button only'! The less rules, the better in my book.

  14. Thanks for hosting, Suzanne! Hope you're having a great weekend:)

  15. Thank you for hosting. Great features. That picture of your wreath showing the close up of the cross is so cool. I'm a cross freak so it speaks to me.
