Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #50! I hope everyone is doing well. The beaches and public parks opened in South Carolina this week. It was nice to spend time outdoors again. Luckily, I still found time to write a few new posts:
I upcycled three Texas barn stars that had been hanging above my mantel for the last 15 years. I was really happy with the results.
Our coffee table received a much-needed makeover with a sunflower theme.
My No Bake Strawberry Shortcake is fast and easy. It’s a great seasonal dessert that will go well with all those homemade meals you’ve been making during the lockdown.
The Little Cottage Link Party is open from Monday, 9am EST, through Thursday, 9am EST (I’m leaving the party open a day longer this year). My goal for this link party is to help myself and others thrive in the home. I’ve spent the last two decades raising five homeschooled children in a beautiful little cottage in the South Carolina Lowcountry. In my opinion, the home is the most important place on earth. It doesn’t matter if you’re married, single, empty-nesting, or raising a large family-your home can still be a refreshing oasis of love and beauty to those who enter.
Time for the Features!
Although I’m a South Carolina girl now, I lived in East Tennessee until I was 13 years old. “Soup Beans” and other types of cooked beans were a staple there and have always been comfort foods for me. I have a ham bone in the freezer and will definitely be trying Joy’s recipe this week.
Paula’s repurposing idea for soap dispensers is a good one. I always have a few Bath and Body Works bottles around my house.
Claire used a china teacup to create a one-of-a-kind wall vase. I’m definitely a fan of using vintage dishes as decor items.
Linda stitched a corona virus story with embroidery thread. I like the square with the beach bucket and the word “dream” because the beach was the first place we went once restrictions relaxed. You can see that square on her blog.
Claire’s ingredients for Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate look so good! I hope I can find them here in the USA!
Lisa’s stenciling technique for shirts looks easy to follow. I’ve always used textile medium for painting on fabric, but she uses an iron to set the paint. Thanks for the new tip, Lisa! Flannels are my favorites.
