Happiness is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade Link Party! #246

Welcome back to another great party, readers!  So many great posts from last week's link up - hopefully you were able to find some new projects, recipes or inspiration to keep you motivated. 

Katie from Love My Mess  is our hostess for the month of November. Katie shares what is going on in her life.  My motivation has actually been kicked up a notch since the snow has started to fly here at my farmhouse.  I'm determined to empty out the storage unit we rented when we moved last January.  Only about 15 boxes left - mostly old baby clothes that need to be sorted and distributed to the various donation spots. 

Are you letting the weather get you down or are you suddenly catching a second wind?

I had so much fun going through all of the posts and picking my favorites - check out what I found!

This Week's Features!

All my gal pals know I am a sucker for a Little Red Truck - check out this craft tutorial I found to make your own Rustic Truck Ornament from the Country Chic Cottage for the upcoming holidays!

Sometimes when I'm checking out different blog posts, I love reading about neat places to visit.  I remember visiting this town from my childhood and had to share it with you - check out the Tarpon Springs Cruise from Comfort Spring Station.

I am all about the farmhouse decor now that we live here at Starry Acres, and this includes my holiday decorations.  I found this really cute DIY Custom Painted Christmas Tree Collar from the Red Painted Cottage - what a great way to hide my Walmart Christmas tree stand!

As a busy boy mom, I love having a special treat at the end of the day but I need it to be quick and easy.  I'll be trying this Pumpkin Nutella Microwave Mug Cake Recipe  from Home Cooking Memories - I think this will fit the bill!

I saw this post from last week's party and had to feature it - my boys LOVED to work with colored rice when they were younger.  You can create such vibrant colors and they loved how it felt!  Here's the blog post for Preschool Colored Rice Activities from Ducks 'n a Row for your own little ones!

Now on to the party!
