Our host Andrea this week is feeling a small sense of relief. She finally feels like things are a little more normal at home. they can actually leave. Hooray! But you never realize how much you miss seeing people’s faces until everyone is wearing a mask. It does free you up to skip makeup though. For me in Ottawa, still working at home and although things are slowly opening I am staying home. I am feeling sad over not browsing through my fav stores but my comfort level is still ” Stay at Home” Weird how we all react so differently isn’t it.
Happiness is Homemade 324 Features
To quote Andrea, the features this week are a little bit all over the place. There’s some food, outdoor, decorating, entertaining and a makeover. I hope you enjoy these and go visit.
I’ve been spending quite a bit of time outside. It’s the only get away. I really like Chas’ solar lights that are made from mason jars. She has so many creative ideas and great tips for cleaning too.
Continuing with that theme, here is Rachelle from My Hubbard Home. She had a great idea for entertaining outside (in small groups of two of course). This would be a lovely thing to do this weekend. Check out her beautiful Coffee Date On the Back Porch.
Have you been following any of the One Room Challenge participants? This is a great distraction. Kristen at White Arrows Home is redoing the guest room in her stunning lake house. I really want to try one of these “some day”.
Her web site will make you want to retire to the lake in style. It looks so warm and cozy in the winter and so much cooler than Dallas in the summer. I’m a sucker for anything plaid so I always love her photos.
Her May table-scape is really cute too.
I’m a sucker for a good furniture makeover. This week we got a post from Wise Little Owl Furniture. Shannon transformed an outdated looking dresser into a modern industrial chest. I really like the way it turned out.
The last feature is food related. If you love tacos, this one looks like a winner and it’s a crock pot meal. I’ve been really giving my crock pot a work out, but this is something new to try from Mommyhatescooking.com (I love that name). Take a look at the Ninja Foodi Chicken Tacos. I’ll be making these this weekend.
Now it’s time for this weeks ideas. Hope you will take a few minutes to check out all the ideas below.
