Hello, everyone!
Welcome to Tuesdays at Our Home!

Although it has been only a few days, I feel like I have been absent from the blog for months. :)
I have been so busy with appointments and other errands that I just had to disconnect myself for a little while 
to get it all done. I hope things go back to normal soon.

I have a couple of projects going on at the moment, but nothing is finished yet.
I am giving our guest bathroom a little remodel.
I am half way done and I am just waiting on my husband to finish some ledge shelves he is making for me.

My other project is a little more special that the guest bathroom. I am working on updating my son's room.
You see, he will be home for good in just a few months and he will be bringing with him his new bride 
and the baby they are expecting. Yes!!! Our first grandchild!
We are finally going to be grandparents! LOL We are sooo very happy!

They will be staying with us for a few weeks until they buy a home and get settled in. We can NOT wait! :) 
I have been sewing new curtains for their room, making enough space to accommodate a crib, changing table, etc.   and I am also getting ready to reupholster an old chair,which is very comfy but the fabric is a little worn out.

On another note, I noticed a few weeks ago that my Pinterest page is doing really well, so I decided to make a board that includes all the features of Tuesdays at Our Home. 
This board is dedicated to you all and it is my way to show my appreciation for all your support every week.
Every link on that board is connected directly to your blogs, so all the credit will go to you and I will be updating it every week.
Here is the link if you would like to preview it. 

And now, lets take a look at last week features.

Michele from The Nest at Finch Rest  gave us a tour of her gorgeous Summer living room. 

Laurie from Heaven's Walk took us back to her childhood and the place so close to her heart. 
What an amazing post!

Debbie from Debbie-Dabble used an old mailbox to create a beautiful addition to her garden.

 Lisa from Texas Decor gave us a tour of her gorgeous garden and outdoor space. So pretty!

Kelli from 3 Boys and a Dog 
shared and very yummy recipe for grilled garlic shrimp skewers. 

JoAnne from A Pocketful of Blue shared the beautiful renovation they gave to the front of their house.

Aimee from Twig Studios created a gorgeous rainbow cake with edible flowers. She is so talented!

Tammy from One More Time Events  shared how she is starting to decorate her home for Fall.
