My Groovy Pink Tray

 Hi, everybody....
I hope your day is a GOOD one. :)

Some of you might remember my
Dollar Tree tray that I created to join DEBBIE DOO'S
DOLLAR TREE CRAFT CHALLENGE.


I wanted to make a cute, cheap inexpensive tray to use around our son, DAVID's swimming pool.

I am lovin' this little bright colored tray...
and have used it several times ALREADY...and we aren't even moved to where the pool is yet. :>)

ONE great use for such a cute tray is.......


serving BREAKFAST...
a TROPICAL BREAKFAST....
"...we're havin' a heat wave......a tropical heat wave...."



 Little homemade BISCUIT MUFFINS, with a tiny drop of HONEY in the batter.

Apricot jelly
(i need to make some more STRAWBERRY FREEZER JAM)

Fruit Salad, made with FUJI, unpeeled APPLES
Mandarin ORANGES
Chunk PINEAPPLE
Chopped PECANS
and a delicious sprinkling of COCONUT.....!!
AND
OF COURSE,


DUNKIN DONUTS COFFEE

served in TROPICAL COLORED mugs.
um hmmm....now that's what I'm talkin' about....

Sooo good... 
...just your own good biscuit recipe OR those awesome little packages of
BISCUIT MIX, using only water...
baked in a greased muffin tin....
drag out that last jar of
FREEZER JAM
(or that great jar of your favorite jam or jelly that you got on sale last week)
and enjoy enjoy enjoy....!!
*********************************************************************
Another use for this cutie tray....

AFTERNOON DELIGHT
Oh, yes, ma'am...
 PINK LEMONADE with LIME....
over ICE
just taste better when it's served on a DOLLAR TREE TRAY, all spruced up.....


and in a
cute glass....

that cost a buck at the
DOLLAR TREE...

and, I have to say that I luv
that little dollar
plastic pitcher...:)

 Cute little glass that make ya feel so good, drinking from it.....

FEARLESS
BEAUTIFUL
STRONG
BRILLIANT
FABULOUS
GIFTED
KIND
SWEET
WONDERFUL
BEAUTIFUL
TALENTED
INCREDIBLE
AMAZING
STRONG
BOLD

If I could, I would send every single one of you a
FEEL GOOD GLASS....

What is it about warm weather that brings out the
"I love BRIGHT colors" 
 in most of us ...?



love and kisses,
bj

You're getting a lot of use out of that cute tray. Summer is fun around your place. Bright colors and summer just seem to go together, don't they?

You just find the best things at the Dollar Tree! I love anything tropical, especially when we have humidity like we have now! lol! Oh, those biscuits looks good. Don't like jam but a half a stick of butter will do! :)

I want the tray that is filled with food. You have no problem finding great uses for most everything. Thanks for the plug. Yes, it is hot as you know what and no rain in sight. Stay cool.

How creative to dress up your tray for summer fun and serving all those goodies you make! I know you can’t wait to be poolside full time, hope you get to move soon. I would love those little mini muffins for breakfast, got to make some with blueberries soon. Great dollar store finds, great pitcher for your lemonade. Happy Pink.........

I voted no one the Paula Deen thing. I am enraged and considered blasting on my blog but like the chicken I am..I backed away. What a bunch of crap!!!
Oh...the tray. I almost for the tray. But of COURSE I like the tray! I wish you were in your new home so we could watch you fix it all up...not that you are doing such a bad job...even while not living there. HOPE someone buys your olden home soon!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Sorry for the "crap" remark...don't fire me ..ok?? :)

SavannahGranny said...

Love the tray, you did a great job.
Since I am in Savannah I know what is going on here. Paula Deen is be sued by an unscrupulous former employee. This is a money grab and nothing else. The black community in Savannah has come out in support of Paula. I voted in your poll and I wrote to FoodNetwork.
Have a great day, Ginger

Gillena Cox said...

have a nice Sunday

much love...

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, my friend. Every time I visit you make me feel better - and you make me wish I was there to eat with you. lol

HOOTIN ANNI said...

This is such a fun post!!!

And as for the poll on your sidebar...I'm curious of those that are the majority. Do they know the WHOLE story? Not just the racial slurs but the wedding party she catered --making the staff dress as slaves, and one of her employees have also filed suit against her for some racial thing etc. etc. This Political Correctness is harboring the USA and filling us with prejudices. Thing is, I think there is something that the media is NOT telling us. The same with FN and the Deen family. None of us knows the story behind it...just what the media carries. I'm not for or against it in other words, I'm just thinking there has got to be more to it.

Hi Maam Bj,
Cool to see you here too at SSS. This is my first meme ever since I started blogging §:-)

You really made me drool with your breakfast. Yummmy! I prefer to grab the fruit salad and need to do a copycat this coming days when I get back in Stockholm (in a week time). I am in Prague for a city tour.

Happy SSs.
