"Why Didn’t I Think of That?" Wednesday

There have been many great finds over on Pinterest this week. And some of them make you just stop and think “why didn’t I think of that”? I will feature some of those pins here, linking to the Pinterest pin.

I keep playing around with the format here a bit. I’m not wanting to step on any toes by including the pics here, and I want you to be able to pin the original pins, so I will be linking directly to the pins that I have on my “Why Didn’t I Think of That?” board. Feel free to head over there and repin as you wish.


First off, growing tulips inside…genius! They are so pretty, this is definitely something I want to try!

Make your own fruit by the foot at home…using real fruit (what a concept). :)

A hanging herb garden, in a shoe organizer! Perfect for small spaces, and kinda cute too!

The many, many uses for Bounce dryer sheets. Who knew!

Three kitchen measurement printables from Martha Stewart. I like the baking pan substitutions one, and the measuring equivalents is a must have.

Since the school year is coming close to an end, here is 24 teacher gift ideas. I always try to be creative with these, since I know they get a lot of small things. This list has some great ideas.

Summertime is coming! Check out these gluten-free waffle cones by Adventures of a Gluten-free Mom.

And with summertime comes outside play time. What a great idea to make a bubble refill station! Includes a recipe to make your own bubble mixture too.

One last one for today…I leave you with something sweet & salty. Check out this AMAZING Peanut Butter Pie with a pretzel crust. Be sure to use gluten-free pretzels, and you’ll be set. That pie looks so good!


If anyone would like an invite to join Pinterest, please email me and I’ll get an invite out to you. While you are there, be sure to follow my boards for recipes, crafts, gardening and many more “Why didn’t I think of that” ideas.
