Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #321

Messy Messy Fail - In my attempt to be supportive and buy more milk then we needed, I purchased a few extra gallons and put them in the freezer.  Milk should be fine in the freezer or so I read.  But one in fact did explode - I think it happened because a shelf bracket caused the milk container to crack.  It was not a huge mess but still, a mess.

Tidy Victory - I have been doing really well with the meal planning and food in the house throughout this craziness.  We only eat out once a week to support small local restaurants.  Otherwise we've had lots of different meals with salmon, beef, sausage, chicken, you name it!  I have never cooked this much in my life but I am pretty proud of how I've done.  

Happiness is Homemade Link Party #321

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade link party. I'm the new host for the Month of May. I started blogging after I closed the B&B that I operated for 14 years. It's my new creative outlet (which thankfully doesn't require middle of the night calls). I'm a mom of one teenage boy, two cats and a dog. My husband is also a blogger in the gardening space.

Enough about me, let's move on to this weeks' features. There's no theme to these, just things I enjoyed reading about.

DIY Napkin Rings

The first is a DIY project from Calypso In the Country. Shelley shared three DIY napkin rings. I just love the floral ones made from paper flowers. They will be so pretty for Mother's Day.

This is my favorite of the three ideas, but all three are worth taking another look.

Seven Things Every Porch Needs

The second feature is from Chloe at Celebrate and Decorate. She is shared the seven things that every porch needs. I don't know about you, but I've been spending more time than usual on the porch. It's almost like leaving home.

Things Every porch needs

I like the outdoor rug, it adds so much color to the front porch.

DIY coastal Terra Cotta Pots

My third feature is from Ashley at Cherished Bliss. It's also an outdoor decor idea. It's finally warm and nice to go outside. Ashley has a great DIY for coastal terra cotta pots. They look so cute with the succulents.

Easy DIY Jar Makeover

Chas is our next feature from Chas' Crazy Creations. She had some great crafts using decals that would also be really nice outside. There are five to choose from so be sure to check them out. This is my favorite because I think would be so cute on the patio.

Everybody has a spare jar around, wouldn't this be a fun centerpiece.

Easy Homemade Waffle Recipe

The last feature this week looked so delicious that I had to add it. These would be a great Mother's Day treat for someone to make me! These waffles are from Lois at Walking On Sunshine Recipes.
