Pinkie's Picks - September 24, 2010

Happy Friday all! I've found more links to share with you all.

First, though, please remember that if you are an Etsy, Facebook or online retailer of handmade products, please consider being part of my Handmade Holidays blog series I will run in November. If you want more info, please email me at:  pinkiefae@gmail.com


Now, let's get to the picks! 

This week's crockpot recipe:  Chicken Tortilla Soup by Ya Get What Ya Get.  You can also do this without the crockpot.  I made this on Monday using a rotisserie chicken I picked up at the grocery store.  Hubz loved the soup so it will be added to our family recipe book...which I haven't really made yet but it's on the "to-do" list.

Even I could make this Starbucks Bird Feeder by MaryJanes and Galoshes.  I think.

Ever had a purchase you wanted to make but wondered when the best time of the year was to get the best deal?  Here's a list by Get Rich Slowly called When is the Best Time to Buy Everything.

I think these tiny birthday cakes made by Chocolate on the Cranium are so cute.  Bean would love to help make some of these.

Make a ChalkCloth table cover for your child's table like this one at Smashed Peas and Carrots. 

Frugal idea of the day - this puzzle storage idea from On the Banks of Squaw Creek.  I saw her post a few months ago and have been looking for these racks at yard sales ever since.  You fellow yard salers need to quit buying these out from under me.  I'd hate for there to be a brawl at the next neighborhood yard sale but I'm tired of missing out.  You have been warned.
