Two (very simple) Pinterest Success Stories!

If you're like me, you love Pinterest.
{and I'm sure we all Pin way more things than we try}
Well...this weekend, I actually used two ideas that I'd pinned from two of my favorite bloggers.
And both turned out to be 
The first was a FIVE ingredient Pumpkin Spice Cake.
I mean, she had me at FIVE!
Even my non-cake eater loved this.
It was so moist and absolutely delicious!

And then I stumbled upon a
"kill two birds with one stone" craft!
First, I cleaned out my over-stuffed spice cabinet.
{on my to-do list for weeks...this craft got me motivated!}
Once the glass spice jars were cleaned out,
they became sweet bud vases
for my Thanksgiving table!
Blog post included printable tags and labels.
Once again...

Both of these bloggers inspire me!
They keep it simple and they are so creative.
Our Thanksgiving was sweeter thanks to their Pinspiration!


  1. I have wanted to try the pumpkin spice cake!

    Glad you had a great holiday!

  2. I love pumpkin spice anything! I make a cranberry-pumpkin bread that tastes like cake which I serve with cream cheese and it's a family favorite here. That little DIY mini bud vase idea is just too cute. I made sure to save the instructions and printables to my computer to do this myself. Thanks for sharing. It was so nice to meet you via the Miscellany Monday blog hop! Now following you on GFC! ;)

  3. Yummy! That cake looks really really good. I'm going to have to pin that!

  4. The spice jar idea is perfect and your tablescape is lovely!
