Happiness Is Homemade Party

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

Favorite 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. 

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!

Happy Thursday! I want to apologize for not responding to comments from last week. As you may remember, I went to Pittsburgh to spend Mother's Day with my Mom, so I didn't have much time to answer comments. I hope you forgive me. 

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day and your week has been going well. It has been nice to be back home, but it was hard to say goodbye to my Mom. 

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.

Happy Wednesday dear friends. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day. I had a wonderful day with my Mom. The weather was awful, it rained and was cold but we had fun anyway. My trip up north to see her, seemed to fly by. I wish I could see her more often. 

I hope you have a great week ahead.

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!

Happy Thursday! Mother's Day is coming this weekend and I wanted to say Happy Mother's Day to all of you a little early. I am heading up to Pittsburgh to see my Mom. I have not seen her since last fall and I can't wait to see her. As I mentioned before, she had her 96th birthday last week. I can celebrate her birthday and Mother's Day together. 

I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day. I know many are not able to be with their loved ones, but you will be together in your hearts.

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop Party

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Yippie, I managed to get the party on time today! It's the little things that make me smile. I hope you are smiling too and having a great week. I am getting excited about this week because I am heading to Pittsburgh on Thursday to see my Mom. If you follow me, you know she had her 96th birthday last week. My sister was there for her birthday. Instead of us all being there for that, we decided to spread out the visits. I will be there for Mother's Day. She is so excited. I wish I could spend more time with her. 

I am sending Happy Mother's Day wishes to you. Have a great rest of your week.

You're The Star - Garden Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Garden Feature Week

Happy Monday and welcome to May. Can you believe that it is May already? Time is certainly flying by. We were very cool, below temps, at the beginning of April  and now we are above temps for the beginning of May - in the low 90s. Weather is just crazy.

However, we have been able to enjoy the pool. We had the in-laws over the last few days and they liked being able to hang around the pool. If it is going to be hot, then you need a pool. 

How is your weather, hotter than normal or cooler than normal? 

I hope you have a great week ahead.

Happiness is Homemade Party

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. 

Each week we have bloggers stop by and share DIYs, home decor, recipes, tips and ideas, crafts, and all kinds of family friendly posts.

Happy Thursday! Can you believe that April is almost over. This year is off to a flying start. My Mom had her 96th birthday yesterday. She is in good health. My sister came down to Pittsburgh from upstate New York and my youngest lives there. I was able to Facetime her and wish her a happy birthday. I will be heading up there next Thursday for Mother's Day. 

I know it has been a strange time, but do you have any plans for Mother's Day? 

I hope the rest of your week is awesome.

You're The Star - Creative Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Happy Monday and welcome to the party. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was good. I spent time with my daughter. I don't always have her to myself, but this weekend I did. It was so nice.
We took long walks and cooked dinner together. 

Hubby is in Vermont so it was just the two of us. It is nice to have that time together with my daughter. 

I am wishing you a great week ahead.

Happiness Is Homemade Party

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.

Happy Thursday! I hope your week has been going well so far.  Mine has been great. My DIL and grandkids came down from Vermont on Sunday morning and are leaving today. 
I had not seen them in 1 1/2 years with covid. Needless to say I hugged them all the time, even though they are teenagers. 

We went zip lining yesterday. What a thrill. It was on my bucket list and so much fun to do it with the grandkids. I am going to miss them so much

I hope the rest of your week is awesome.
