The Weekly Round-up for 8/25/13

Sunday, August 25, 2013

Good Sunday Evening, Lovelies!  I hope you are getting into a routine with school back in session most places.  I want to share with you three posts I enjoyed this past week and link-up to Miss Angie's and Aubrey's The Weekly Round-up.

Do you ever crave salty and sweet at the same time?  I sometimes do, and Gina @ Random Thoughts From an Incoherent Mind posted the most delicious recipe for:

I really hate to say farewell to summer....I really do.  Especially since we didn't have much of one with all the rain and much cooler temperatures.  But Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life put together an adorable centerpiece for summer's end.

Isn't it cute!
I love the vintage pail and blocks.

Amy @ Vintage Marketplace has made the most beautiful dreamcatchers. Check it out:

I love the pompoms!  Amy is selling them at an art show and in her Etsy store.

Here's a great idea for a link party I read about on Paula's Blog:

It's time to recycle older, fabulous posts that newer readers might have missed.  I think I'll play!  It's a great idea, and will be live September 5th.

I'm hoping to blog and blog jog a little more this week.  {fingers crossed}  

Until next time...
