I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
I know you all probably noticed I have been away from blogging for a little while. Life has been pretty busy around here lately and I just had to step away from the computer to be able to catch up. I know you all understand how that is. :) Also, my little Etsy shop has been keeping me pretty busy and I am loving all the time I have spent sewing in the last few weeks.
I hope to be able to be back to full time blogging soon, but until then, you can always count on this little party to be up every week.
Lets take a look at last week features!

Michelle at The Painted Hinge shared a tutorial on how to paint mason jars using nail polish. 
How fantastic is that?

 Nicki at Sweet Parrish Place used chalk paint to give her pitcher a makeover.

 Tammy at Taylor Made Homestead shared a wonderful and very easy recipe for homemade pancakes.

 Kathryn at The Dedicated House remodeled her kitchen by painting her cabinets. Love the transformation!

A wonderful recipe for Cinnamon Caramel Popcorn was shared by Kimberly at Lou Lou Girls.

 Judith at Botanic Bleu wrote a beautiful post about her trip to Whisper Mountain. Gorgeous pictures!

Fabby at Fabby's Living  organized her kitchen beautifully.

Thank you again to all who took the time to participate!
 I always appreciate your visits and wonderful comments! 
If you were featured, please feel free to grab a "featured button" from my sidebar.    

You will also be able to view all these posts linked directly to the owner's blogs at my new Pinterest page.

Now, lets see what you have been up to this week! You can link up any posts that are home decor, gardening, crafting, painting, sewing, cooking or DIY related.  NO Etsy shops or link parties, please. And although there is really no other rules to join, I would love if you start following my blog.

  Have fun!



  1. Thank you Maria for your party and the features are just great.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. Maria Elena, thanks for hosting today. I'm linking with you. :)

  3. Thank you so much for featuring my Whisper Mountain, Part 1 post. We had a wonderful time in a beautiful house with incredible views. I've added contact information for renting the house to all three of the posts in my Whisper Mountain series.

    I understand about life being busy and not being able to blog as usual. Since I've been in Alabama almost all summer due to my Mom's death in June, I haven't had access to internet nor really the time to devote to photoing and writing my blog. You take care of yourself. Thank you for going the extra mile to continue to host the weekly Tuesday's At Our Home linky party.

    My post today is my Rosary table and my DD Alex in Marbella. She just arrived here today until the 15th and later flying to Miami for the birth. NO, she won't be an 'Anchor Baby' as my daughter is an American, lol!
    Have a wonderful week.

Enjoy the break! :)
