Happiness Is Homemade Party

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

Happy Sunday! I am writing this early so I am not sure how Saturday and Sunday turn out, I am driving to Pittsburgh and of course they are expecting a major snow storm. I hope I can get there before it hits, but I do have lots of mountains to get over. Prayers would be nice. My Mom is not doing well so I need to be there. You may be wondering why I am driving in the winter, well, I have an antique desk that I am taking to my sister for her birthday. I have wanted to leave for a few weeks now, but of course I wait until there is to be snow. Maybe, it won't happen. 

If you are in the path of this storm, be safe.

It's a new year and our linky parties are in full swing. This week has been interesting, a lot of self reflection,  Bloggers sharing what they are working on and what their followers loved last year.  It’s tough selecting only 4 posts to highlight.  which is why I want to remind everyone, take a moment and search through.  This is a space to get inspired and help each other out.

Happiness Is Homemade Party

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

Happy Sunday! I hope your weekend is going great. I got out my Christmas decorations and we decorated the outside. We did put the tree up. We have an artificial one.

Today I will start the inside. I did work on new wreaths for my front door. They are not finished yet, but that is what I am working on today as well.  

I am so in the Christmas spirit. There is something about those Christmas lights that gets me in the mood. Are you getting ready for Christmas? 

With Thanksgiving over, it is time to focus on Christmas. So I choose Christmas features this week. I hope you enjoy them.

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

Happy November. Can you believe that it is November already? I hope you remembered to turn your clocks back (if you do that). I always hate this time of year. It gets dark so early. it seems to make the nights so long.   My son lives in Vermont, and it gets dark around 4:30. That is really early.  Do you like the time change?

Halloween is over and we are moving onto Thanksgiving (if you celebrate it) That usually means great recipes, lovely tablesettings, decor and pumpkin ideas. With that in mind, I picked some fall and Thanksgiving ideas. On to the features:

Happiness Is Homemade Party

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

Happy Halloween, and welcome to Happiness is Homemade! We're so glad you're here to share and explore with us. I will miss the Halloween decorations, but I still have the fall ones that will be up through Thanksgiving. 

We have had some really beautiful cool weather. it certainly reminds me of Halloween nights up north. We don't get many kids for Trick & Treat, just the neighbor's son. I miss the days when we had around 100 kids show up. Times have certainly changed. Do you still have lots of kids at your door? 

Have a wonderful Halloween and a beautiful Sunday.

Happiness Is Homemade Party

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

I am so glad you're here to join us for the 398th Happiness is Homemade link party! I have been loving seeing all of the fall and Halloween posts. It is so hard to pick only a few features, but know that we enjoy seeing all of your posts. Please continue to share them.

 Before we get to the party, let's take a look at this week's features.

I thought I'd get a few non-Halloween features in this week, and one is this post by Krafty Planner. In it, she gives us 7 tips to practice an attitude of gratitude. With Thanksgiving coming up next month (in the US) and the state of the world, we can forget all of the good that we still have. 

Along the same lines of that is these adorable worry jars by Must Have Mom. They are too cute. Little ones are affected by external forces just as much as we are, if not more. With this idea, your child can write down their worries and let them go, as they put the paper in the jar. I like her idea of making this a cares jar and giving them all to God.

Ok, now back to Halloween! These felt flags by She's Crafty Crafty are so cute. I have a ton of felt with nothing to do with it. Much of the sheets are fall colors, so this is the perfect project to use them up. She mentioned how cute these would be in the hands of a toddler in a wagon going trick or treating. I agree!

Lisa over at Fresh Vintage by Lisa S created these adorable printables to add to a bottle for a quick and easy Halloween decor piece. It looks perfect on her brown bottle. Who doesn't want to upcycle something you'd throw in the trash into beautiful decor?!

Y'all this next post is unbelievable. I found it and asked her to submit it to Happiness is Homemade. Linda from Life and created this Hallow-queens tablescape, and it's gorgeous! Who wouldn't die to be at this Halloween party?! Get it?

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

Happy Sunday.  I am heading home after a visit to my friend in southern Florida. After dealing with losing my sister, she thought it would be nice for me to get away. She was right. There is nothing like a girls night. 

I am so glad that you're joining us for the 396th edition of Happiness is Homemade! Here you can share and find inspiration for everything homemade: recipes, crafts, gardening, home decor, and much more. Before we get to the party, let's take a look at this week's features.

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

Happy Sunday. I am back home after two weeks. The funeral was difficult but we made it through somehow. It was very difficult for my Mom. We are worried about her. I hated to leave her but we had to get back home. 

I want to thank you for your concerns and prayers. I really appreciate it. It meant so much to me.

I hope to get back to comments this week. 

Before we get to the party, let's take a look at this week's extremely hard to choose features. It is the first week in October, so you may see a bit of a Halloween theme. It's not necessarily on purpose, I just love decorating for Halloween!

Happy Sunday! It is with a heavy heart that I write this. My sister had heart surgery last Thursday and was doing very well. However, on Thursday night , one week later, she passed away. it has been a shock to all of us. I came back up to Pittsburgh to be with my Mom and younger sister and then will be heading up to Rochester, NY on Tuesday. 

If I don't respond to comments, please know that I will probably read them.
