Wednesday Menus #5 and a cute button craft

Last week I was all about the creativity.  I cross stitched a couple of things.  I organized and cleaned things.  I decorated things.  Made a Valentine banner.  And I made a button craft.  Here was my inspiration:
This is from a cute crafty blog that you can find here
 And this one, too:
From this blog
I merged the two!
 And here is my version:
I used some pre-made burlap covered frames from Wal-Mart that were 2 in a package for $6.  I just propped it on a tiny easel near my cookbooks.  I could make these for way cheaper if I find frames while I'm out thrifting.  I love that I was able to use a lot of old buttons in there - some are made of shell and somewhat antique.  And I also love me some burlap!
Wednesday - Brinner with Hayride Bacon (flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin), omelettes, skillet apples
Thursday - Buttery Garlic Parmesan Chicken, rice, salad
Friday - Turkey Sloppy Joes, sweet potato fries
Saturday - Dad grills
Sunday - Crock pot Carnitas
Monday - Honey Soy Chicken, masheds, green beans
Tuesday - Skinny Beef Enchiladas, charro beans, salad
Dessert this week: Sour Cream Raisin Pie for Hubby's Birthday
I made one for The Girl, too.
I'm going to package it up with some chocolate and love for her Valentine's day!
