Happiness Is Homemade

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party 

So sorry I am late in posting this party. I hurt my back yesterday and totally forgot. Have a great Sunday. 


Also happy Father's Day to all the wonderful fathers out there - your special day is much deserved!  No one can fix broken toys like you can, keep a pristine lawn or grill the perfect steak like you!

Happy Sunday dear friends. It has been a hot weekend so far but rain is expected to come today and cool things down. We certainly need the rain. I think it is to be a rainy week but that would be fine since I have ironing and sewing to do. 

I got several things off of my list, but 3 more things went back on. We finally planted our mini banana trees. I wanted to get them in before the rains came. I finished two projects that I will be sharing soon. 

Hope you have a great upcoming week.

Happiness Is Homemade Party

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party 

Happy Sunday.  Our Saturday started off with a bang and I do mean a big loud bang. I was sitting in the living room drinking my tea when I hear an explosion. I looked out the window to the front yard and saw that someone had hit our mail box and pieces of it were everywhere.  

Now our mailbox is solid brick with concrete block inside. The had actually pulled it out of the ground. I run out, still in my pjs and no shoes. I see this guy up the road has stopped, He was pulling a pontoon bout. My neighbor who lives 5 houses up heard it and came down. Hubby is somewhere walking so I don't know where he is. 

My neighbor goes after the people who now consists of another family, his Dad and uncle and tells them they need to fix my mailbox. I run in the house to get some clothes on and shoes and call hubby. By the time he gets back, the guys are there and we are cleaning the debris from the road that landed around 60 feet from the mailbox.

The speed limit is 25 and at the end of the street is a park and boat ramps. He damaged his boat so bad and it ripped the mirror off of his truck. I asked if he realized he hit something and he said no. He was 20 years old and no way was he going 25. No one does that on this road. 

We raked pieces of brick out of our yard and back around 40 feet.  They came back and removed all of the broken mailbox and debris and actually put a post in the ground and managed to straighten out the mailbox from within the brick and screwed it on. What a morning!

I hope your Saturday was much better. Have a great Sunday!

Happiness Is Homemade Party

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

Welcome back to Happiness is Homemade! I hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Weekend. We had some well needed rain yesterday. The veggies and flowers loved it. We are having some family for dinner on Sunday and others on Monday. 

Enjoy your weekend and let us remember all of our men and women who gave their lives to depend our country. 


Favorite Features

First I'd like to share this week's features! Thank you to all of you bloggers who share all the wonderful posts we get to read each week!

Janet from A Life of Balance shared a tutorial for this simple patriotic wreath. It seems very easy and quick to put together. She used her Cricut to cut the stars from balsa wood. I haven't tried that yet, but I can't wait to! This wreath is perfect way to greet your guests as you kick off the summer with your patriotic barbeque!

Next Joy from Artful Homemaking brings us a post on deep cleaning your home. She has some great tips and ideas. In her post, Joy shares free printable checklists for when you get down and dirty in your house!

Claire from Pillar Box Blue shared this post on all of the things you can make with old blue jeans.  These ideas look like so much fun. In the article, she tells us exactly how to deconstruct jeans depending on what projects you'd like to make. Some of these are perfect projects to keep your teens busy this summer. They may even be able to sell a few!

This wood tray was shared with us from Tiffany at Tee Diddly Dee. Can you believe this beautiful tray is a DIY?! I thought it was going to be an upcycle (love those too!) or a vignette tutorial, but she hand made this. In the post she shares how to make it, step by step. Since you make it yourself, you can customize it for your home. You could change the size, color, or handles, yet use the same tutorial. I think it's beautiful and would fit perfectly into my house in a medium colored wood stain.

Finally we have Penny's she shed from Penny's Vintage Home. I am in love with the look of this trailer turned she-shed! It has turned out absolutely beautiful. Mr. H cut an old headboard in half, which is what you see on either side of the jut-out. Who would've thought it would look so cute. She repainted the jut-out in light grey with the pink door, and that makes the shed. I love those two colors together. The sunflower theme that runs across the shed is just perfect. If there's A/C, I could just move in!

Now it's time for the link party!

Thank you for joining us this week. We are happy you're here to share your latest posts and to check out the amazing ideas shared by other lovely bloggers! Be sure to visit all of our hostesses blogs, we love when you stop by!

Before we get to this week's party, I'd like to share our featured posts that were shared with us this past week. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. It is almost impossible to choose only five! Keep bringing the heat ladies (and gents)!

Beth from Whispers of the Heart shared a musical tablescape. She created this in memory of her loving mother who played the piano for 66 years before the Lord called her home!  I have no idea where Beth comes up with these beautiful tablescapes, but you must check her out! This is stunning, and I love how the red pops on the black and white.

Next Candice at She's Crafty Crafty showed us how to make a decorative banner flag using an old drop cloth. She has been doing craft fairs and needed a better way to display her store name. Her framed sign kept knocking her in the head, so I see her need to come up with a new display, and quick! There are so many ways to customize this for your needs. It will look great hanging on a wall. She has inspired me to try one of my own, which I will try to share with you this week. Thank you Candice!

Our very own Linda from Labour of Life shared with us these delectable looking milkshakes. Oh my gosh girl! I am trying to lose a bit of weight for swimsuit season, but out that goes! She was looking for ways to bring summer into her life a little faster, and decided what she needed was a little "Summer Lovin' to have her a blast." I know you see what she did there Sandy and Danny fans. This is just what she needed to giver her a little summer blast. You must try her milkshake recipe.

Now we have these adorable boho triangle coasters that were shared by Julie from Julie's Creative Lifestyle. How great are these, lying next to a beautiful succulent? These would go perfect with some macramé hangings on the wall, a few hanging plants woven in macramé. The tassels bring it to another cuteness level! They are all the rage now, so I am definitely going to try to crochet a few myself. Julie was kind enough to share the crochet pattern with us. Thank you, you lovely lady!

I had to choose Debbee's bee wreath and skep, shared from Debbee's Buzz. In this post she gives us not one, not two, but three bee theme wreath instructions as well as bee themed party ideas- games, decor, & food. She has made this her annual "favorite things" party.  Debbee pulled this together while participating in April's Pinterest Blog Hop Challenge, which encourages you to use those pins, not just pin them.

Before we get to this week's link party, I'd like to share our featured posts that were shared with us this past week. 

First up Julie from The Farm Life shared with us a great idea for crafters. She created craft go-bags that she can bring with her from day to day so that when she finds herself with a little down-time, she can work on her DIY projects. All of us have those days when we have to go to doctor's appointments, to take our children to practices, or, horror of horrors, to go to the DMV! There's a lot of waiting, so why not utilize that time to be productive but also to pass the time having fun with one of your craft projects packed in a size appropriate bag, all ready to go when you head out the door. Check out her post for further instructions.

This post shared with us by Shelley from Calypso in the Country gives you a tutorial for making a DIY cane wrapped vase. This is a great piece to bring a little summer into your home. It's a quick and easy project, but makes a big impact on your summer home decor. She even made two small votive vases to match!

Memorial Day is coming up, and I love adding patriotic decor to my home. This DIY flag wreath from Ann's Entitled Life is just the ticket. I've made similar ones, and they are so easy to do. If you have French or balcony doors, make one for each door. Add some string lights, a patriotic banner, and some citronella candles and you have the perfect setting for outdoor get-togethers over the summer!

Farmhouse decor is all the rage today, and some of the price tags reflect that! Sarah from Must Have Mom has a solution for that. She bought some thrift store items and upcycled them using her Cricut to have the farmhouse look for less. She shows you how to create adorable signs, a riser, and the cutest flower container from an Ikea bin.

Finally Carol at Comfort Spring Station updated her faux orchid in just minutes. I love plants and flowers indoors, but I kill every single one I've ever had. Faux plants can be quite expensive, so when you invest in one you need to be able to keep it around. Carol's had a dated woven basket for the container, and she wanted to update it to a more sleek, modern feel. Check out her post to see how she did just that, and changed the entire look of her side table!

Fabulous Features

Before we get to this week's link party, I'd like to share our featured posts that were shared with us this past week. It is so hard to choose only five!

These wildflower bookmarks are adorable. Sarita from An Off Grid Life and her children made these by foraging for wildflowers in their area. How fun?! I think my son and I will be doing this over the summer. She used a laminating machine, but if you don't have access to one, they have laminating sheets available at your local craft stores and usually at Wal-Mart.

Next I chose these gorgeous floral cones from MaryJo at Master "Pieces" of My Life. In her post she shares with us cones for displaying flowers from three different materials. The one below is my favorite. It is made from burlap with a hexagon shapes and a bee design. She placed fresh flowers in this cone. It's beautiful and the perfect addition to any Mother's Day gift!

I love adding seasonal vignettes throughout my home. If you're new to creating your own, or if you are thinking about trying your hand at one, Carol from Blue Sky at Home has created a tutorial for you to follow. She shares a few tips about what you should have for the base of a vignette and how to create them without spending any money. I just love this patriotic vignette!

It's nearly summer, and three quarters of my family have summer birthdays. Which means themed birthday parties. Pryiam from Simple Joys threw a Mermaid themed party for her daughter. She created themed foods, games, and decorations. Ariel herself would be impressed. I love how her party turned out, so I'm sure any little girl would LOVE this party, dinglehoppers and all!

Last, but certainly not least, we have these blackberry and lime margaritas. How good do these look?! Libby from A Life Unfolding shared a recipe for creating these mouth watering margaritas, garnished with blackberries, limes, and lime popsicles. Be sure to head over to her site and pin this post for whipping up a few over the summer. I see myself pool side, sunglasses, hat, and refreshing margarita in hand!

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

Welcome to the party. Here we are in May. Can you believe it? We are having higher than normal temps - in the 90s. Too hot for this time of year. Yet, in the north cooler temps are back. Hubby came home form Vermont where they actually had snow showers one day. He was glad to get back home where it was warm. 

I want to wish everyone a Happy Mother's Day, whether you are the mother of two legged children or four legged children.

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

Welcome to our link party! We are so glad you are here. I hope your weekend has been great so far.

Mine has been awesome. I have been working on a couple of projects that needed to be painted. So while they were drying I was working on my garden. The weeds seem to be growling faster than the vegetables. Why is that? My black raspberries are doing so well. I love picking them and especially eating them. They are so sweet. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Each week bloggers stop by to share their best recipes, crafts, home decor ideas, organizing tips, fashion tips and more for you to enjoy. If you find something you particularly like, be sure stop by their blog to pin it so you will have quick access to it later.

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you have a very blessed day. I know that we may not be able to be with all of our loved ones, but know that they are thinking of you and you are thinking of them. 

We are gathering with inlaws, a couple daughters and their families. It will be nice to be spending this time together. We have all had our shots except for the teenagers, but we will be careful just the same.

Take care my friends and rejoice in that the Lord has risen!
