How was your weekend? Ours was a little wet. We had the craziest weather over the weekend. 
Such severe storms coming through our city. Very scary!
It started getting dark, really dark by 10.00 AM on Sunday morning.

And this is inside the house thirty minutes later.
At this point, we started getting a little concerned. We were under tornado watch and the thunder and lightning was impressive. 

And two hours later, the sun came out and it was like nothing ever happened. Not a cloud in the sky. 
That is Texas for you. Crazy!

Before we start the party, lets take a look at some of last week features.

Marie at The Interior Frugalista turned an old table they found online into a gorgeous 
Outdoor Portable Beverage Bar Cart.

Lydi at Lydi Out Loud created a beautiful Easter brunch coffee bar.

Suzy at Worthing Court showed us how to make a moss covered wreath. Sooo pretty!

Crissy at Dear Crissy shared a wonderful recipe for Cherry Kuchen Bars.

Handan at The Navage Patch created a beautiful faux succulent wreath.

Miranda at Cookies Dough and Oven Mitt shared a great recipe for Cookie butter Pie.

  16. Thank goodness, that tornado nastiness passed you by. Do you have a tornado-safe place to go when you are under tornado watch? I heard another blogger say they had a closet to hunker down in, and I remember a closet at my grandmother's home where we would go...this was in Louisiana, and it didn't happen very often. Scary when it does!

    So glad you missed this one!
    Hugs, Carol
