The Weekly Round-Up

Sunday, June 16, 2013

I've been wanting to participate in this linky for such a long time!  I finally got my act together this week.

Here are the posts that really captured my attention this week:

Jo @ Will The Kids Turn Out Okay
has started a new series about life in Belgium.  Her first post was about how Belgium is the French Fry Capital of the World!  You can read about it here.

Gina from Random Thoughts made the cutest lampshade for her daughter's pig lamp.  It is too, too cute.  You can read Gina's lampshade post here.

Ann @ On Sutton Place had practical advice for accessorizing a kitchen.  If you haven't seen Ann's kitchen, you's adorable!  Get your kitchen decor ideas here.

Debbie @ Mountain Breaths gives some practical advice on storing peonies for use at a later date here. I had no idea!

Y'all know how I love breakfast recipes, and Jane @ Jane's Adventures in Dinner posted a recipe for Orange Brule French Toast here.  *le sigh*   I'm making this for Sunday Brunch!

Grace @ Sense and Simplicity shares her daydreams for a rainbow celebration here, and I love her ideas!  One of the most creative bloggers in blogland, Grace really needs to bring these ideas to fruition!

If you want to know how to get to Sesame Street, it's at Jolene's blog here. Her grandson's birthday party is so flippin' cute!

Mary @ Brown, Party of Chaos posted a cute Tardis food quote craft that will make you giggle!  You can read about it here.

I hope you take the time to read some of these wonderful posts.  I enjoyed them!

Join Aubrey and Miss Angie if you would like to share some fun posts on your blog.  Thanks for hosting, ladies!

Happy Father's Day to Mr. Art @ Home!!!

Until next time...
