The Weekly Round-Up for Week of July 14th

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

I'm a wee bit late to this party as I've been partying elsewhere, but that's okay.  Here's a look at the posts around the blogosphere that I keep visiting over and over again the past couple of weeks:

1.  White on Rice Couple made some delicious Grilled Tomato Lollipop Toasts.  You must try their recipe!

2.   Check out this enchanting tween's room from Butterfly and Bungalow.

3.  The ladies at Ivy and Elephants have created the most AH-dorable bubblegum machine.  It's fun and glamtastic at the same time!  

4.  Diane @ Lavender Dreams took the personal photo challenge for birds, and she nailed it!  I want to paint this black swan!

5.  Finally, Vanessa, our Mad Tea Party hostess @ A Fanciful Twist, made every little item at her mad tea party, from the characters to the cups and food.  She'll be selling the pieces at her shop soon!

I hope you stop by these amazing blogs and oooo and ahhhhh like I've been doing!  ;P

Thanks for hosting, Angie and Aubrey!

Until next time...

  1. Great minds must think alike. 3 of the 5 picks were favorites of mine this week. Recipes are never favorites because I have promised my family that I will not cook. They do like me to bake though.

  2. Oh, thanks so much for the feature, Ricki Jill!
    I've had a "ball" gathering pearls and rhinestones for my little gumball machine! So glad you liked it.
    Big hugs,

  3. Wow! Thank you so much for mentioning me this week! I hope you'll paint a beautiful black swan! It would be amazing! And I'm having fun visiting the tea parties, too. Vanessa is awesome and her creations are fun and whimsical! Enjoy your afternoon my friend! You've sure made me feel special! Sweet hugs!

  4. Oh My Gosh, they are all so lovely and different. Love the black swan from Diane and the gumball machine from Ivy and Elephants, is quiet a creation! Love them!!

  6. Thank you so much, Ricki.

    Oh my gosh, the gumball "pearl" machine is so whimsical! I LOVE Vanessa and her creations! And I love the photo of the swan; it reminds me of Monet. I'll have to try the tomato recipe.
