My Favorite Finds Friday: Ain't Nobody Got Time for That

This week as I browsed the Pinterest for Easter ideas, I found myself thinking that there are a lot of people out there with too much time on their hands.  Or, with much more flex time than I have available.  And though, I suppose the argument could be made that if I spent less time on Pinterest seeing what others are doing, I could then use that time to create some nifty, but time consuming, niftyness of my own.  (I am choosing not to dwell on that concept)

Anywho... in the spirit of all my "That's really neat! But who has that kind of time?" discoveries, I present to you this week's Friday Finds:


This bunny face fruit platter from www.worthpinning.com would be an adorable addition to the Easter brunch table!  And the grand baby would eat it up - literally and figuratively.  But, if I'm honest with myself - I know I would run out of prep time and it's just gonna end up as a bowl of fruit salad.


There's also these too-cute-for-words deviled egg (or angeled egg, if you prefer) chicks from cincyshopper.com!  I think I may have actually said "aawwww!" Out loud when I saw them.  And while the thought of serving these little peepers up at Easter dinner did make me pause for a moment or two,  I don't have that kind of patience.  In fact, I usually delegate the egg making to someone else because...  I have zero patience for all that peeling.

And then there are the bazillion items shaped as Easter related items which began life as humble rolls and buns... now, bunnies, chicks, carrots filled with egg salad! One can have an entire Spring scene of baked goods on the buffet table.

Now, PLEASE understand - I am not knocking anyone who creates any (or all) these adorable items for their Easter meal. So, please refrain from leaving angry comments or sending me hate mail. I truly do think they are beautiful! And if I had a little more time or patience, I would probably try to produce a few of them for my own family.  If you decorate your holiday table with any of these items - More Power to You!  I would love to see pictures of your own creations.

Or even better, maybe you could send some over to my house?  (hint, hint... wink, wink)

  1. LOL...Love your humor!! 😂 I do well to fix the for, let alone get all fancified!!! I do admire"those" women, though. As close as I got was making a bunny cake one year and dying the whites of my deviled eggs to look like Easter eggs. This year, though...we're having a cookout!!! Pappy and Nannie ain't gettin any younger.
