Pinterest Fridays - The First One!

For those of you who don't know, Pinterest is pretty much the most amazing website ever.  With the exception of this blog, of course!  I'm pretty much obsessed with it.  If you haven't checked it out, you need to.  If you want to get started, check out the things that I've pinned (you can follow the Pinterest link on the right).  The problem is, I end up spending so much time online that I don't actually end up doing any of the awesome things I've pinned.  So, I decided that every Friday is going to be Pinterest Friday.  I'll blog about the things I've done that week that I found originally on Pinterest.  I'll provide pictures and links to the original pin from Pinterest and then show/tell you what I did in my own "pinteresting" life. :)  So without further adieu...

This week on Pinterest (click on the picture captions to link to the Pinterest pin):

Original Pin:  DIY Dishwasher Tune-Up






DIY Dishwasher Tune-UP:  I have to say, I was so excited to do this!  Our dishwasher hasn't been cleaning very well recently.  I did all 4 steps in this DIY blog post and was amazed to find out how much gunk was lurking in my dishwasher filter.  It was pretty gross.  I found paper, hair, even broken glass.  My first load after cleaning the filters was so much better!  I plan on following this dishwasher tune-up once a month.

Original Pin: Halloween Candle Display
Halloween Candle Display:  I thought this was just such a cute, inexpensive way to decorate for Halloween.  I bought some glass containers at the Dollar Store for, you guessed it, $1.00 each.  Then I bought some candy corn at the grocery store.  We already had some white candles at home.  Set up was a cinch and the candles look so cute all lit up on our kitchen table!  Hmmm...It seems like the level of candy corns keeps getting lower...very interesting... :)


Here's what I did.  I think it turned out pretty cute!
