By the time all of you read this, I’ll be in Palm Springs, California soaking up the sun and spending time with good friends! Woo hoo! We will be vacationing with two other families and between the 3 of us we have 4 kiddos between the ages of 1-3. It’s going to be a busy 4 days, but I can’t wait :)
I cannot even begin to tell you all how excited I was after last week’s party. I was seriously on cloud nine. First of all, 268 links on the first week?!? Holy cow all of you are awesome. Thank you so much for hanging out with Jaime, Lucy and I and sharing all of your amazing projects. I really enjoyed looking through the links and getting to know ‘new to me’ blogs. All of the talent out there is truly incredible. I can’t thank you enough for joining us and sharing your work and I’m really looking forward to see what you have to share this week.
In case you missed it, you can view a great round-up of fall projects that were linked up here, along with our top picks from the party. We also have a Happy Hour Pinterest Board where we feature additional projects.
Now let’s take a quick look at what’s been going on with us this week.
Even though fall isn’t technically here until the 22nd, it’s already fall in my home! This week I shared my Rustic Fall Centerpiece that shows how neutral colors can still be festive. And what would a week be without something from the kitchen? In preparation for National Pancake Day next week I put together a round-up of 10 Must Try Pancake Recipes, I also shared my mom’s delicious Chocolate Zucchini Recipe. Lastly, I’m still making final tweaks to a new space and gave you a peek at some new Vintage Inspired Mason Jars using jute and washers.
I am absolutely loving what Lucy shared this week over at her place. I’ve seen a lot of spoon projects lately, but I’ve never seen a Spoon Artichoke Vase! It’s so chic, I am definitely putting this on my list! She also shared some really useful Tips for Styling Photographs and her Ikat Stenciled Rug. Don’t you love it? Well, if you head over to her place you can enter to win a stencil of your own!
Jaime was all about having fun this week and kicked of a Tailgate Week! How fun is that? We are huge football fans here and all of these ideas are perfect for our next tailgate, except they are definitely in the wrong colors (hehe). Jaime made adorable Tailgating Bunting, Personalized Utensil Holder, Team Spirit Serving Platter and wrapped it up with Tailgating the Crafty Way!<img title=”Happy Hour Link Party ” src=”http://designdininganddiapers.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Happy-Hour-Link-Party-Button.jpg” alt=”Happy Hour Link Party” width=”250″ height=”250″ />
Alright it’s party time! I cannot even believe all of the goodness that was linked up last and I know all of you are going to bring it again this week!
