Sweet Inspiration Link Party #69

Happy Friday, everyone! It’s time for another Sweet Inspiration Link Party 🙂

Sweet Inspiration Link Party #67 | craft, decor, DIY, recipes

Life Lately

We are about a third of the way through August and, finally, this gal’s ready to slow down a little. I’ll be taking a bit of time away from original content on the blog this month to make way for much-needed rest…and some blog planning.

I’ve been wanting to carve out some time to learn a few things that I hope will add more value on the blog – including video tutorials (I’m so non-techie!) & getting a survey out to my newsletter subscribers (signing up is as easy as adding your email to the blue sign up bar at the top).

I’ll continue to be active on all my social media accounts, including my Facebook Page –> I’ll be posting all that I’ve been up to, along with my fave craft, decor and DIY inspirations.

In the meantime, I know you’ll want to check back every Friday to see what everyone in Blogland is up to – > (I think that’s my cue to get on with today’s Sweet Inspiration Link Party!)

Party Time!

If you’re new to the Sweet Inspiration Link Party, it’s a great weekend event where bloggers share their latest projects. These range from crafts, decor, home improvement DIYs, recipes, and inspirational posts that you can browse through in the link gallery (at the bottom of this post).  The party starts on Fridays 11am EST/ 4pm GMT and runs until Tuesday 11am EST/4pm GMT.

Our Favourites From Last Week’s Party

My Pick – Fresh & Easy Avocado Corn Salsa Recipe by Little House Living

Sweet Inspiration Link Party 69

When I saw Merissa’s twist on traditional salsa over at Little House Living, I practically salivated reading the post (I’m not kidding!). Fresh, flavourful, and with ingredients you can find in any grocery store, it’s the perfect recipe to whip up for family or friends or for that last summer soiree 

Florence’s Pick – Vintage Farmouse Milk Painted Drawers by Raggedy Bits

Sweet Inspiration Link Party 69

Florence says:  I love this farmhouse makeover of an old chest destined for the trash heap that Sam at Raggedy Bits has done! Old Fashioned Milk Paint and Sam’s expertise to the rescue! What an improvement over how it used to look! Great job Sam!

Mary’s PickDIY Crocheted Lamp Shade by Moois van Me

Sweet Inspiration Link Party 69

Mary says:  I think this is such a cool crochet project by Moois Van Me. It looks both modern and vintage at the same time.

Christina’s PickOld Before, New After – Refurbished Mid Century Dresser by Fabi Fabu

Sweet Inspiration Link Party 69

Christina says:  I like to transform old furniture. This mid century dresser has everything I like. Beautiful color, gold accents and a lot of love! You must see the old before and how Fabiola from FabiFabu gave it all the love it needed!

Michelle’s PickHow Our Texan Grand Dogs Spent Their Summer by The Red Painted Cottage

Sweet Inspiration Link Party 69

Michelle says:  This post from Carol at The Red Painted Cottage made me smile from ear to ear. The photos tell a story like no other – you have got to see how awesome this fur baby and her buddy are.

      Thanks for your kind words, Katrin. It’s definitely time to unplug and take stock. If I don’t, I’ll forget to smell those proverbial roses ‘they’ keep talking about 😉
