What a week this was. Little brother came to visit from the East Coast and we spent the week visiting the nearest place to where mom’s ashes were scattered:
And then he kicked me out of my kitchen and stuffed my fridge full of amazing food. Just know that chefs cannot cook for only 3-4 people. 5 pound baked mac and cheese anyone?! It is sooooooo gooooood!
After he left I spent the last few days planning a complete remodel of my kitchen. Fear not! I will be blogging about the process every step of the way in case you want to do it as well.
If you are looking for a fun activity to do with the kids, or just a creative outlet for yourself, this week I shared how to make coil pots without a pottery wheel or kiln.
Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #279
Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #279! I hope you enjoyed last week’s party and my features – I really enjoyed Pinning so many of the awesome posts our bloggers had to share! Now that my kids have been out of school for a solid two weeks, I’m trying to come up with ideas and projects to keep them occupied. We’re also doing quite a bit of traveling to visit family out of town.
How has your summer been so far? Are you ready to check out my featured posts? Without further ado…
THIS WEEK’S FEATURES FOR HAPPINESS IS HOMEMADE #279
Check out this INCREDIBLE looking Lemon Ombre Layer Cake with Lemon Curd Filling from Bird’s Party – I love lemon in the summer and I think ombre is such a beautiful effect!
Do you have some pavers or perhaps brick that need updating? Check out this DIY Painted Brick Pavers project from So Much Better With Age – I think it takes a floor to the next level!
Sooooooooo we just picked 30 lbs. of strawberries last week – yeah that’s a lot, I know. I kept about 4 lbs. fresh in the refrigerator for a few quick baking treats and the rest directly into the freezer for making FREEZER JAM later on. BUT just in case I need another idea, how about these 100 Strawberry Recipes from Attachment Mummy to use as a reference – I can’t be the only one out there with all those berries to use!
One of my favorite popsicles from when I was a kid was the orange creamsicle, so I HAD to feature this Over the Top Orange Creamsicle Milkshake recipe from Food Wine Sunshine. It looks SOOOOOOOOOO refreshing and dreamy!
I love having pretty lighting around my patio to enjoy in the evening. This DIY Wooden Lanterns with Solar Lights from Kippi At Home would be a great project for practicing using power tools.
