    Whoo hoo! What an awesome round-up, Tara! (And I’m not just saying that because you featured me…btw thanks for that!) I’m feeling REALLY inspired, though, especially since I’m always smacking my hand to my head when it comes time to stay-over someone’s house and I realize I totally spaced on the hostess gift. I’m really liking the idea of making a whole bunch of bath salts or keeping mason jar wine glasses on hand so I have the at the ready to give as gifts. Adding this to my crafty to do list right now!

    Happy weekend!

    Warmly,

      You’re welcome for the feature, Lauren! Your stuff is great! And yes, I definitely want to crank out a few of these babies and have them ready to go. When I look at the projects, I know who would love a set of coasters, who would love “redneck stemware” and who would love a set of dishcloths. I’m going to do it! 🙂

      Oh, because you didn’t already!?!? You know that I’d be the one with the box of wine and a big bouquet of flowers that I would most likely try to pass off as grown in my garden! 🙂

      Why don’t you live in my neighbourhood? 😉

      Thank you so much, Kirsten! I do like how it’s a little bit on the pretty side! I don’t often use pink in decor, why not on the blog? 🙂

      I loved your milk bottle vases, Krista! And sometimes just the simplest changes to an ordinary object can make the biggest difference!

    Great round up! I am always amazed at how much people appreciate the time it took to create a hostess gift. I have often taken flowers from my own garden or something I have baked but these ideas are wonderful!

      I know that I would be moved if someone gave me a homemade hostess gift. I’m all about the thought. (Well, a bottle of wine always goes over well too! 😉 )
