Holy Shishkabobs! To-Do Thursday

Hello! I hope you are having a lovely day!

For my very first To-Do Thursday I would love to inspire you to make Shishkabobs!

I have been craving shishkabobs for quite a while now and the other night hunky boyfriend surprised me by having everything out and ready for us to make them on the grill!! Grilling is one of my favorite parts of summer - John love to do the grilling and I love to eat the grilling!

Here's our little station we had meat, onions, peppers, potatoes, and pineapple...

They turned out beautifully - great color combos! There is no after grilling photo because frankly, I was just too hungry when they were done to take a picture...

Sadly, there are not many shishkabob items on Etsy. So I broke apart our little meal and found each item separately... Enjoy!

Are these not the cutest little pineapple shoes ever!? JudysHobby created these lovelies!

This onion tote is such a great example of upcycling! I just love it - from peggylapoint

This watercolor ACEO of a pepper would be great framed and hanging in the kitchen - ChavahsGarden

For the potato part of things I found this cute potato sack apron - complete with ruffles! This is from the shop tamilyn

sacredflesh creates these funky little t-bone earrings, almost like the meat used in the kabobs!
