Happiness is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade!

As we begin this week, many are bracing for hurricane Dorian. I am still in Vermont but my daughter is in Florida taking care of our dogs. I wish I could be there because it is no fun when a hurricane hits.  There is always so much to do to prepare for the storm and she had to deal with our house and hers. I am wishing for prayers if you can, not only for us but for all of those dealing with this storm.

This week's Happiness is Homemade Link Party has DIY projects and recipes that will have you in the Fall frame-of-mind even if the weather is still warm where you are.

Hey ya'll! It's Lisa from Blogghetti and I'll be your hostess this month.  I'm all about simple and delicious recipes that get dinner on the table fast but won't break the bank making them.  September is still quite warm here in Georgia but I'm already in Fall mode waiting for the cooler weather and dishing up Autumn foods.  
This week I am featuring two sweet Fall treats, two easy DIY projects, and one easy meal perfect for any night of the week, including Meatless Mondays.  I can't wait to see what wonderful posts are linked up this week.  Bring it on!

Happiness is Homemade Features of the Week (Party #286)

I love a good no-bake cookie recipe like these Nutter Butter Acorns from All Because She Saved.  So easy that the kids can even help make them.  Perfect for an after school snack or package them up to send in with the kids for a classroom snack.  Save a few for yourself!

Gather your craft supplies to make one or all of these 7 Fabulous Outdoor Fall Wreaths from Stone Gable.  I wish I had time to make them all but I think I am making the Green Apple Wreath for my door!

If it's Fall, then it's Pumpkin time! How cute are these Mini Pumpkin Bundt Cakes from Walking on Sunshine? I just love how easy it is to make them.   

Want to update a table but don't want to spend a lot of money doing so? Then this DIY project from Abbotts at Home is the perfect project for you.  Using 2x4's to create a one-of-a-kind table top will give your old table new life.  Make this DIY Wood Color Block Table Top and have fun with the colors.   

Finally, one extra feature this week because we all need a quick meal in our recipe box.  I just love the flavors from roasting vegetables and this Lemon Butter Orzo with Roasted Asparagus and Tomatoes will make a tasty dish this week on my menu.  Get the recipe from TinselBox.
