Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Happy Tuesday evening. Hope your week is off to a great start. All is well here in my neck of the woods. Temps have cooled down a few degrees. Keeping busy, are you doing anything special?

Welcome to our party! Party? How do you have a party on a blog? We call them "blog hops" or "link parties." For those who may not be familiar with them, blog hops are parties where bloggers share their latest posts with the public. Other visitors also attend, looking through the collection of posts in search of great ideas. Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop has some of the best recipes, crafts, kids activities, mom tips and home decor ideas on the internet. Check them out and, when you find something you really like, visit and pin it so you can find it again in the future!

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

Happy Sunday! Today is a special day since it is our anniversary. We actually went out to dinner last night to celebrate. Tonight we are grilling steaks. We are not much into gifts or anything like that. Most would think we are boring, since today we have been working outside in the yard. Oh well, that's who we are!

I hope you enjoy checking out my features and all of the amazing posts.

Happiness Is Homemade

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party

Welcome to the party. Can you believe that this is the last party in July? Where has this month gone? The weather has cooled down to 89 which is a nice change from the high 90s. We are almost done painting the house. I am hoping to get some flowers planted tomorrow before it rains. What are your plans for Sunday?

Thursday Favorite Things

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

I can't believe that it is Thursday Again. Boy, these weeks are flying by. Hurricane Barry came today and brought with it lots of rain. The temps dropped although it was still sticky but at least it was cooler - 89 instead of the high 90's. I'll take it. Has your weather cooled off or is it still hot?

Check out my wonderful features and then link up your posts. Have a great day.

Many of my features come from you my commenters. Don't forget to leave your Linkup Number or Post Title so I can find you and you could become one of my featured commenters next week.

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Welcome to our party, I am so excited that you are here. My week has been good so far, the concrete was poured today for the walkway and the new patio. So glad that is is done. It has been hard to keep the dogs away from where they were working. Weather is still hot but we have had lots of rain, mostly in the evenings. Hope your week is going well and you are staying cool.

You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Are you experiencing this heat wave? Seems as though many in the states are dealing with high temps. We had a crazy day - it was very hot - 95 Degrees. A storm rolled in and branches and debris were everywhere. The temps fell to 78 degrees. I loved it. We will clean it all up tomorrow as the temps climb back up.

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

Happy Sunday! The weather is still the issue here and in many parts of the country. Yikes, is it hot. I have heard from many of you that you are having heat waves too. Our only problem is that we will not get a break any time soon. If you are having cooler weather, let me know and I might come and visit. 

Try and stay cool and enjoy checking out my features and all of the amazing posts. You can do that indoors!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party

Is it a hot summer or what? We are always quite warm here in Florida but hot temps are sweeping across the country. Even Boston is experiencing high temps. It is hard to think of working outside with this weather. I can't seem to get the energy to do any projects that involve being outside. Are you lucky enough to have cool weather or are you dealing with high temps too?

Fresh Peach Pie

Fresh Peach Pie

It is peach time in Georgia. Well at least it is for me. We drove up to Georgia to pick up some peaches. There is nothing like a Georgia peach. Pick one of them up and eat it and it is like nothing you can get in stores. The juice was running down my arm. 

If you follow me, you might remember that my brother-in-law manages a pecan farm but they also have groves of peaches. So each year I get a bushel. In the past I have picked them up and taken them to my son's house when we were on our way to visit, but this year I wanted peaches in my freezer. 

Hubby usually comes up on Thursday evenings, so I made him a peach pie.

Thursday Favorite Things

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

It's Thursday and welcome to the party. I am so delighted that you have joined our party. It has been another busy week for me - they are preparing our yard for a new patio, sidewalk and circular driveway. It seems like they are everywhere - front and back of the house. The dogs are not sure where to go, but they still bark at all of the men that arrive.

How is your week going? Is it hot where you are?

Check out my wonderful features and then link up your posts. Have a great day.

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Here we are in the middle of July. This summer is flying by. I can't believe that it will be August in a few weeks. Hope you continue to enjoy your summer. 

We are having a new patio, walkway and circular driveway put in. I feel so bad for the men who are doing it in this heat. Today they started by removing the sod. for the patio and walkway. We already have the circular drive in but it is gravel. 

The dogs go crazy with all of the people here. Dachshunds love to bark and protect me. What a week I will have.

You're The Star - Family Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Family Feature Week

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was a mixture of some rest and some work. We had to get our irrigation system moved in preparation for a new concrete patio that is being started today. In the mist of that, we were scheduled to go to Georgia to visit my husband's brother and family and pick up some fresh peaches. I am sharing a fresh peach dessert with you today.

Fresh Peach Puffs

Fresh Peach Puffs!

It's peach season and we love fresh peaches and any way to use them in a dessert is OK with hubby. These peach puffs come together easily and taste great. 

They would also be yummy for breakfast or a brunch.

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

My weekend has been a mixture of relaxing and working. We went to Georgia to visit my husband's brother and family. It was so nice to relax for a change - no house work. We were gone only one night, had to come back early to finish getting the sprinkler system ready for Monday. We are having a new concrete patio put in and had to move many of the pipes away from the back and reconnect. Biggest problem is that temps are around 95 degrees. You really don't want to be out there. 
How was your weekend? Still hot where you are?

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Link Party!

So delighted that you have stopped by. My weekend is off to a crazy start. We are having a new patio put in so we had to relocate the sprinkler system and of course the pipes are up against the wall where they will dig. We worked all day getting the pipes out and tapped off. Not what I really had on my list. What do you have planned for this weekend?

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Thank you so much for stopping by our party. I hope your week is going well so far. I have been doing some painting. I painted a cabinet I found by the curb and we are also working on painting the exterior of the house. We have so many projects planned, but it seems as though one needs to get done before we can do the others. We want to put sod down, but can't until they pour the new walkway. I also want to fence in the front, but need to wait on the walkway and the sod. It will get done, just will take longer than I had hoped.

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

Happy Sunday to you and I hope your weekend was awesome. Mine was good although we spent the last two days painting the outside of our house. We did not get all of it done, but we can finish it up next weekend. We still have all of the trim to do. Did you do any projects this weekend?



Curbside Cabinet Updated

Curbside Cabinet Updated

I needed storage in our master bathroom.  Our new house is very limited on storage so I need something that I could put over the toilet that could hold cleaning supplies and some other items.

This cabinet was a solid piece of wood and I was so excited. I knew I could make this work for me. I found this cabinet beside the curb last week and I knew I needed it. Someone had put it out for pickup, and that was me. Here is what it looked like when I found it.
Eclectic Red Barn: Curbside Cabinet

Someone had actually painted the piece. It was not a stencil. 

Eclectic Red Barn: Flowers on Curbside Cabinet

Although it was pretty, it did not go in my bathroom.  I had to paint it, but first I had to sand the flowers and then put a coat of Kilns on it and then painted it all white. 

I put a few decorative items on the bottom shelf. The mustache mug and brush were my Dad's. 

I have thought of putting a stencil on the doors but I have not found one I like yet.


Eclectic Red Barn: Bottom of cabinet with decor

I was able to put most of my cleaners in there and still add some decorative items as well. Don't you just love those curbside pieces, especially when they serve such a great purpose.
