Happiness Is Homemade

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party 

Happy Sunday!  It's Beverly from Eclectic Red Barn, your host for the month of August.  This weekend has been tax free weekend for items you might need for going back to school. Do you take advantage of that? 

I know that many are still trying to sort out the whole school thing. I must admit, I am glad I am not in your shoes. Good luck with all of it. Hopefully, it will all work out. 

I hope you enjoy all of the features that I have chosen for you.

Hello dear friends. Can you believe that it is August? I am Beverly from Eclectic Red Barn, your host for the month of August and I am so excited you are here. 
How has your weekend been? Ours has been pretty good. We had some good news about our Louie, who has had back problems. He went back to the doctor on Friday and he is doing a little better and the vet doesn't think he needs surgery. He stills needs lots of rest and to be carried outdoors. He will start acupuncture on Tuesday and hope that helps. We are saying our prayers. 

 I hope you enjoy all of the features that I have chosen for you.

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

Hello my friends. I hope Your weekend is going well. Mine has been difficult. I am dealing with a very sick dachshund. Dachshunds are notorious for having back problems and that is where I am with my boy, Louie.  it started on Thursday and by Friday morning he was not able to come up a small step from the garage. I rushed him to the vet and she confirmed that the situation was serious.
She sent me home with meds and instructions to NOT let him walk at all. I had to crate him and pick him up to take him out to the bathroom and then carry him back in. It has been a crazy few days, but he seems a little better tonight. Needless to say, I don't get much done but take care of him. He is my baby boy so I am fine taking him. They are our babies and steal our hearts.

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a great weekend. Ours has been hot but I see that it has been hot up north as well. It meant a lot of pool time. I am still sewing. I have three pillows done with two more to go. I then have to make some drapes
and that project will be done. 

Do you have a project that you are working on? Any sewing projects? I did finish another DIY project but I need to get the pictures done and get the post ready. Too busy sewing. lol!

Welcome to the Happiness Is Homemade  Party 

Happy 4th of July to everyone in the USA and happy summer to all! It seems as though the rest of the U.S is having a lovely holiday weekend but here in Florida it has been raining. I can't complain since we needed the rain and it gives me some time to do things indoors. 

We are having a quiet weekend just hubby me and my daughter. Nothing special going on here. What are you plans for this weekend?

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Linky Party!

Happy Sunday to everyone. I hope you are having a lovely weekend. We certainly are. It has been so relaxing to be here at the farm. I am sitting on the back deck enjoying the warm breeze. The dogs are asleep around me. No covid19 cases here. Life is good!

Happiness is Homemade Link Party #329!


I know I can speak for all of the Hostesses when I say thank you for stopping by and linking up! It's party time so let's get started.

Feature #1 - Crock Pot Pulled Pork Sandwich!


There is nothing sweeter than a Pulled Pork Sandwich and this one looks so easy to make in the crock pot. Pulled Pork Sandwich paired with a salad is the perfect Summer lunch. And of course, the perfect pairing salad is featured up next.

Arlene from Flour On My Face says, “This easy 4 hour Crock Pot Pulled Pork Sandwich is one of our favorite family crock pot recipes made with only 5 ingredients. 5 simple ingredients for the best pulled pork you’ve ever made."




Pulled Pork Sandwich

Feature #2 - Creamy Cucumber Salad!


Cucumbers are so plentiful this time of year and this salad just looks delicious. Just cucumbers, sweet onion and a little marinade and you are on your way. What a perfect salad to pair with a Pulled Pork Sandwich.

Ann from Entitled Life says "Grandma’s old-fashioned Creamy Cucumber Salad Recipe. Super easy to make, this is a delicious blend of cucumbers and onions in a sweet, creamy sauce is the perfect cucumber salad recipe!"




Creamy Cucumber Salad

Feature #3 - 13 Amazing Planters for your Flower Garden!


I love junk and if you've been following me you know that upcycles and recycles are also a big favorite of mine. These garden ideas look so fun because a little junk and some flowers, Oh My!

Sinea from Ducks in a Row says, "In my search for patio garden ideas, I came across 13 amazing planters that I just love. Here are some of the most creative, surprising ways to make flower gardens in planters. Feast on this beautiful selection and tell me which one you like best! "

Feature #4 - Gossip Bench Makeover!


I said it above, I love furniture makeovers. Anything vintage just has me doing a happy dance. This Vintage Gossip Bench just stole my heart. This is such a perfect example of trash to treasure. I love how Ann took something that was so close to being dumped and revived it into a new life.

Ann from The Apple Street Cottage says, “A few weeks ago I received a text with a picture. It said, "Any interest?" I couldn't type out, "Yes!" fast enough! I love gossip benches."




Gossip Bench Makeover.

Feature #5 - 7 Easy Ways to Decorate with Hydranges!


Gardening is a true passion of mine, although and unfortunately, I don't make it a priority these days. Thankfully, grocery stores offer an abundance of store bought flowers. Hydranges are one of my favorites.

Shelley from Calyspo in the Country says, "Hydrangeas have become one of my favorite flowers to use in home decor. Their fullness makes them perfect for centerpieces and they look beautiful whether they are real, artificial or even dried. Definitely a versatile flower to use when decorating."




Easy Ways to decorate with hydrangeas.

Now it’s time for this weeks ideas. Hope you will take a few minutes to check out all the ideas below.

Hey there, Sweet Friends, Happy Sunday. We are having lots of rain from Cristobal. We have not had much rain recently so it was great for the grass, flowers and garden.  It gave me a chance to do some sewing which I have put off since I was outside so much.  Are you affected by this storm? Let me know how your weekend is going. Leave me a comment below.

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade!


Hello my bloggy friends. It is the last day in May. I remember talking to my Mom in April and she said I don't think I can go another month being isolated. Well, we did it. May is almost done and June is right around the corner. More and more places are open and it is easier to find groceries and TP, and other supplies. I find that people are wearing masks more than when it was at the height of the virus. Not sure why, but maybe because more masks are available.  I still don't venture out much but my daughter and I did go and get some flowers and soil. We had a nice few hours together. 

How are things in your area? Are you getting out more? Can you find what you need?

Happy Memorial Weekend. This holiday may be a little different than ones in the past, but that's OK. I see more people walking these days or riding bikes. Just spending time with their family. Maybe slowing down a little is a good thing. 

The thing that I miss the most is hugging. I can't wait for the day to hug my daughter, family members and friends. That will be a great day. In the mean time, I can still see them even if they have masks on. Those masks do free you up to skip makeup though.

Hello Bloggy Friends!  I hope everyone is healthy and maybe getting to go out a little. I haven't ventured out much except I did go to the grocery store. A few more stores opened up but I will wait a while before going to them. What is happening in your area?

Welcome to this week's features. These are just a few of the things that I really enjoyed reading from last week's entries. There were so many good ones to choose from. 


Have a look at this spring table from It All Started with the Paint. It's so fresh and clean with pink and grey. I love the lanterns Linda, wishing you had said where you got them. Don't miss the double sided table runner on Linda's table. She has a tutorial for it.

Next we have a beautiful spring wreath from Yvonne at The Stone Gable. I'm always drawn to this blog whenever I see her photos. It doesn't look that difficult to make either. I had to order the black and white ribbon right away (even though you can't get it until June).





Spring wreath from the Stone Gable

This one caught my eye because I'm so eager for a night out. This list of quarantine date night ideas from the Lou Lou Girls got me thinking. I wish I lived in some place with a view like this.

The next feature is a paper craft. These cactus paper cards are so cute. I haven't done much with cards, but this makes me want to try. This is from Antonella at White House Crafts. She has so many cute paper cards.

The last feature is part of a one room challenge series with Better Homes and Gardens. I would love to try one of these, but for now I will just have to live vicariously through Kathryn over at The Dedicated House. She is transforming her daughter's bedroom, but here is her breakfast nook from her entry in the 2017 challenge.

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade Link Party!

Hello my blogging friends. May is here and you know what that means - warmer weather, flowers and gardens. I have been working on my garden and it is doing quite well. I have wanted to get some flowers for some of my pots but Lowe's has been so crowded that that I have stayed away. 

Here in Florida, some restrictions are changing on Monday. Restaurants are allowed to open for seating outdoors - tables have to be 6 feet apart and inside only 25% capacity. It will be awhile before we go and sit down but we can still do takeout.  

What changes are taking place where you are?

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade Party 

Welcome my friends! I am so glad that you stopped by to share a moment with us. I hope you are all well and are continuing to adjust to all of these crazy conditions. One day we will look back on all of this and maybe wonder "how did we do it". Stay strong, we will rise again, even stronger than ever.

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade Party 

Happy Sunday to everyone. I know that we are still staying at home and trying to stay healthy.  Although it can be difficult, keeping this virus at bay is our primary goal. No one wants to be the recipient of it. 

With that in mind, I am seeing some amazing ideas for being at home: things for the kids to do, lots of DIY projects,  things to do when you are bored or recipes you can tackle. 

Are you doing new projects or maybe trying to finish up some that you started? Have you made any new recipes? How are the kids handling being at home?   Share your thoughts, I would love to hear them. I am doing lots of gardening. Any body else gardening?

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade Party  Happy Easter!!!

I know that celebrating Easter this year is not the same. It is so weird not going to church, but we are going to do a sunrise service on the radio. Just think, back in the day, the radio was the source of all information. We can still honor our Lord in out hearts and in our prayers. Matthew 18:20 says: 
For where two or three gather together in My name, there am I with them.

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade Party 

Happy Sunday! I hope you are all well. We are all fine in my neck of the woods. Dealing with being at home and trying to make the best of it. We are so lucky to be in Florida where the weather is nice and we can be outside. With hubby working at home, I have him working on some projects. 

How are you dealing with being at home? Are you working on house projects? We went past Lowe's today and the parking lot was so crowded, you could not find a parking space. Don't they know, you are supposed to be home and not in crowds?

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade!



Happy Sunday, Friends. It's Beverly here from Eclectic Red Barn your host for the month of March. We are in lock down mode since Thursday night. Are you in lock down? It doesn't bother me too much because I am usually at home. I do miss working out but we are doing some online classes. 

Have you been able to get the groceries you need? We are doing pretty good in that area. I am getting some things done that have been on the back burner. All of my family is good. My daughter has a sore throat but that's all, so maybe she is good. I have stayed away from her, which is sad. How is your family?

On behalf of all of our hosts, I just want to say THANK YOU to all those who contributed to last week's party! WELCOME to all the new bloggers who have joined our weekly blog hop. Please invite your blog friends and social network to join us.


Don't forget to use this hashtag #happinessishomemade when sharing our party! 

Let’s get on with the party! Grab a cup of coffee and get prepared to be inspired! Today I'm featuring some amazing bloggers. I have chosen some great recipes and several DIY projects.
