Find It On Etsy Giveaway: Pretty Betty Designs $25 Gift Code!!! (US/CAN) -CLOSED-

Review by Aimee
Winner

Pretty Betty Designs on Etsy has your vintage inspired jewelry needs. Holly, the owner, says of herself:
I am...
a mother
a daughter
a sister
a grand daughter
a step mother
a niece
a daughter-in-law
a designer
an artist
a tattoo collector
a reader
a collector of records and interesting people
a recycler
a dreamer.....
As you guessed, Holly is a real person, with real talent. :) It seems obvious she loves what shes does not only on Pretty Betty Designs, but in life. Looking through Holly's shop,  I'm inspired to buy more vintage-styled items; and of course from her shop.  :) There is a very unique style at hand here; one not to be missed!


I was able to review these unique, and stunning earrings above from Pretty Betty Designs.  They were suggested by Holly, and I'm so glad I took her up on the suggestion.  They aren't what I would normally choose, but I absolutely love them! I love the contrast and mixture of metal that is used, as well as the emerald rhinestones and Ruby Ziosite (a naturally occurring combination of Ruby and Ziosite crystals....yes, I had to look that one up! ) :) :)   So if you need suggestions, take her advice.  But be assured, her shop is full of fun unique surprises you will absolutely enjoy no matter what!

Just a heads up for any order of jewelry, not just on Pretty Betty Designs; If you do have sensitivity issues with earrings make sure to make that clear in your order.  Holly is awesome at making sure you have something to accommodate that.  If its something that's in stock she will happily replace it, if not, she can order what you would need for a small fee.


For the month of October, Pretty Betty Designs is offering our readers 15% off the entire shop!  Use code FRIENDS15 at checkout.  Take advantage now and stock up for the holidays!

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

What to do with Apricots: Homemade Fruit Leather

If you have access to an apricot tree I highly suggest making fruit leather.  This was my first time attempting any kind of dried fruit and it turned out heavenly!
Plus my house smelled great all day!!  And if you read a recent post you can see why that would be needed...lol

Add lemon juice 1 tsp at a time to taste
Add cinnamon to taste
Add nutmeg to taste - I did a lot of tastin'!! :)
