Finding the Pretty & Delicious Linky Party #2

I want to start by saying THANK YOU to all of you who came to the party last week.  I appreciate each and every one of you – those who linked up and those who visited some of the great ideas that were shared by so many.  One of my biggest fears has always been that I was going to throw a party and no one would come.  Thanks for coming to my party.

It was so much fun we are doing it again this week and for right now it will be a regular feature here on Your Homebased Mom on Saturdays.  The linky party will open at 7 a.m. EST  Saturday morning and will remain open until the following Tuesday until 9 p.m. EST.

Today I am excited to share with you which post had the most views as well as a few of my personal favorites from the line up.  There were so many it was hard to choose so I decided to go with a theme – Valentine’s Day!

The most viewed post was this fun Valentine’s Game from Mariel of Or So She Says.  Check out the fun M & M Straw Game


I love a pretty Valentine’s mantel and this one over at Girl Loves Glam is just gorgeous!  I am especially in love with the houndstooth garland made from duct tape!

Valentine Mantel Decor

These Pink Cherry Sugar Cookies with Vanilla Dip are pretty and delicious and perfect for any Valentine’s Party.


Love the Day has so many fun printable valentine ideas and this “I Like How You Roll” is just darling.  Makes me wish there was someone at my house giving out Valentines!


Love this twist on an old classic – a Valentine’s Whoppie Pie over at  Cupcakes and Crinoline.


If you are looking for some quick and easy Valentine’s decor or gift idea check out the cute Valentine Day glitter sign over at Lolly Jane.


What would Valentine’s Day be without a little (or a lot of chocolate).  I was drooling over the photos of these Killer Crunch Brownies from The Farm Girl.

Killer Crunch BrowniesI’ve got one more idea I have to share.  It isn’t a Valentine idea but I loved the idea for an extended family photo on the beach from Kristen Duke Photography! and I totally pinned it for the future.  Now if I can just get Kristen to come to Oregon to take the photo for me!
