Friday Finds

Just a little list of things that have caught my eye on Etsy this week...

I just love these sweet little earrings.

This poppy print is just darling.

And I think this brooch would be a lovely compliment to a gussied-up outfit.

Have a happy weekend, friends!

Butter Bean Burgers

The hub & I have been trying to cut back on our meat consumption lately. So, I've been on the lookout for new meatless recipes to try and we gave this one a go last night. I'm not a bean person at all, but we both liked these burgers a lot and they were no trouble at all to make!

1 (15 oz.) can butter beans, drained
1 small onion, chopped
1 tbs. finely chopped jalapeño pepper 
6 saltine crackers, crushed
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Vegetable oil
Salt & pepper to taste
Directions: In a medium bowl, mash butter beans. Mix onions, jalapeño pepper, crushed crackers, egg, cheese, garlic powder, salt & pepper. Divide into 4 equal parts & shape into patties. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry patties until golden on each side. We did about 3 minutes on each side. And that's all there is to it! We put a dab of mayo on ours and next time I'd add some crunchy lettuce leaves, but I think that's the only thing that I'd change. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

A Dilemma

Hey friends!
I have a bit of a dilemma that I'm hoping you all can help me with. When we had the benefit for Katelyn a while back, we used these little green, glitter buckets for centerpieces. Well, it's been over a month and they're still hanging out in my craft space because I can't figure out what in the world to do with them. It seems like such a shame to pitch them when they're still perfectly usable...

And that's where you come in.
Any ideas on what I can do with these?
There are 15 of them and I am just totally blanking. 
What would you use them for? 
What would you turn them into? 
Really, I'm open to any suggestion at all. So, pretty please help me come up with something in the comments section! It would make me oh-so-very happy! :)
