Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #61! I hope everyone is enjoying the last week of July. The period between July 4th and Labor Day usually puts me in the blogger’s doldrums, but I want this year to be different. While I’m waiting to paint pumpkins, scarecrows, and foddershocks, I plan to complete all of my undone projects. Here’s what I did last week:
I had a few leftover shells from last Christmas and decided to make a mermaid-themed ring holder with acrylic paints.
Because I’m a Christian, several people have asked me if I think the Lord is judging our nation with this chaotic period in our history. Honestly, I don’t know for sure. Who can know the mind of God? However, I did manage craft a Biblical response.
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!
My first feature reminds me of the chain stitch crochet ribbons my friends and I wore around our pony tails in the 5th grade.
Chas’s colorful Mason Jar Fruit Glasses are fabulously eye-catching! Her instructions, videos and photographs are pretty great too.
Kippi’s wood slice wreath is gorgeous and suitable for any time of year.
Have you ever wanted a perpetual block calendar? I bought a Christmas countdown version on sale at Michael’s at a holiday sale last year, but never thought of making one. Jennifer’s tutorial will show you how to make your own. She also sells pre-made block calendars in her online shop.
Linda made a handy quarter keeper from plastic canvas. I never have quarters for the car vacuum or parking meter. Maybe something like this would help me to be more prepared.
Joy’s breakfast parfaits are pretty, healthy, and convenient. Since I’ve begun WW for the 5th time in 5 years, I’ll be needing some new recipes. This time I plan to succeed.
