Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #276

Messy Messy Fail - I simply cannot get my lettuce seeds to sprout!  I initially started them inside in April but nothing every appeared.  I tried again but still nothing.  To Walmart I go because there is NOTHING like having fresh lettuce to pick for salads and sandwiches! 

Tidy Victory - The rest of the veggie garden is doing well this year: radishes, peas, tomatoes, an onion (lol), peppers, zucchini and carrots.  I learned a lot last year from my accidental cross pollination - green pumpkins that never turned orange and odd shaped zucchini. :)

Hello and welcome to Happiness is Homemade Link Party 276. We've made it through Father's Day and the summer solstice. Our lovely spring and early June turned into a hot, humid mess this week. It was a good time to spend the afternoons inside scrolling through all the wonderful ideas everyone has shared. My older daughter and granddaughters arrived on Wednesday, my son and son~in~law flew in for the weekend on Friday, so we have had a full house, lots of wet beach towels, bowls of cereal, popsicle sticks, and a grand time. The girls stay through Friday and we have lots of activities planned. Hope you are enjoying your summer and love sharing your favorite projects with us here at Happiness is Homemade.

I love to use mason jars in my home decor. In fact, I just did a post on how to tint mason jars (see in the links below). Linda at It All Started with Paint shared this darling DIY painted mason jar.

I don't know about you, but I have a problem with dryer sheets. I love this idea from Salvage Sister and Mister for making easy reusable dryer sheets.

This one had me at cake, chocolate and Texas. This classic sheet cake recipe has been around for years and I'm so glad that NancyC shared it again. It never gets old.
