Making Home Link Up #22: Pirate Themed Party Snack Treasure Chest

Welcome to the #MakingHome weekly link up!

Be inspired by posts all about home; moving house, home decor, DIY, crafts, family activities, recipes, gardening and more. It’s all here under one roof at Mrs Crafty B’s.

Don't forget to join in this week and link up your own posts. The linky is open from Friday until Tuesday. Find out how to take part at the end of this post. 

Just a quick update from me this week. As those of you who follow me on social media will know, this week I celebrated a 'big' birthday and so I have been a bit unprepared with all the celebrations going on ;-) I did however do a bit of shopping this week again! We made an impulse buy of a lovely mirror and a photo frame for our utility/downstairs toilet as well as some paint samples and a roll of wallpaper. On a whim! So not something I would normally do. The picture frame is for some photos that Hubby B took on our holidays and this particular space is going to be nautical themed. I will post some pictures of all of our goodies very soon and I am so excited to get this project underway.

Hoping you will join in with #MakingHome this week. With it being the week of my birthday I would love to see a few posts on handmade gifts, maybe cake recipes or party themes. All other posts welcome too of course! Here's a contribution from me; a treasure chest made from a loaf of bread for a pirate themed birthday party!

  1. Hey Annie and a very HAPPY belated BIG Birthday!! I bet it's not as big as the one I'll soon be celebrating! Although thankfully, a couple more Birthdays away yet, it's still approaching far more rapidly than I would like! This week, I've linked one of my most popular posts in the real world - if I had a pound for the number of people who arrived at my door saying "I need one of those!", I'd be rich. Perhaps I should start selling them! The sign definitely works. Since it went up last autumn, I've had just 1 cold caller. Whoop! Happy Sunday x

    1. I love it. Literally. I used to have a hand written sign but I am defiantly in need of one of these now. I get far too many unwanted callers and often very late at night! Thanks for the birthday wishes :-)

  2. Many thanks for hosting 'Making Home' again. A very Happy Birthday to you too. I was born in 1976, so this year I'm celebrating a big birthday too. Quite looking forward to my 40s :)

    1. oooo I love a good birthday. I can't wait to see what the next ten years brings my way (or what I do with it). I definitely didn't freak out like some of my friends haha. Thanks for the birthday wishes!

  3. Whether arranging a major Halloween party or simply having two or three individuals over for nourishment and beverages, these ten awesome Halloween party snacks are all things you must have in your refrigerator. This is some truly fun, dreadful Halloween sustenance.

  4. We were not even taught a lot of things, so now there are problems with this, but I use the fact that there is the best paper writing service, despite the price, the work is very high quality
