Top 5 Hits

Lisa, “Mr. Charming,” and Coco the cat, share a week in pictures as they make-over the corner of their backyard. At Recaptured Charm we get to watch the creation, from start to finish, of their new Fire Pit Patio. It just makes me want to rip out the old and put in the new, finding fabulous!

A gal who calls herself, Sweet Little Smoothie has a delightful new, go-to-shower gift she can personalize for brides, Tea Towel Shower Cake. I can see making one for a baby gift with receiving blankets and all the ideas we used to throw in baskets! Thanks Sweet, for a cute new idea.

I’ve so enjoyed a fun and fresh “Watermelon Week” of mouthwatering recipes shared by Joni at Red Couch Recipes. Frappe, watermelon crispy treats, and ice cream all celebrate the 1st week of summer yummy days with family and friends.
Sherri says, “Summer is a new Americana Quilt …just in time for the Fourth of July and her patriotic decor! She’s in love with this quilt, and I’m in love with her beautiful pictures and great ideas at A Quilting Life.
Easy Peasy Grandma, Donene, pulled out all the stops with her adorable re-purposed table and chairs that she painted and Mod Poged with paper tiles. She’s Finished! with her patio make-over and ready for a sunny summer.
Have an inspired weekend all!

    It was so fun to see Joni’s blog featured. I loved her watermelon week too and just wish I had been served a piece of the ice cream watermelon. We just got back from a week at Girl’s Camp so it is fun to be back in the blog world. Of course my family made fun that I quickly sat down to blog. Thanks for visiting. It is nice to be home and around baths and chocolate and restaurants, etc.
