My goodness, friends! This has been a nice two weeks off from school (summer vacation), enjoying the pretty mountainside around Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and our nephew and new niece’s wedding, and just taking a break from writing…

Other than the time we were moving out of our last house (August 2015) and I had nothing to write about (or so I thought…), I have taken very few breaks off from blogging and this was a nice break. I was originally just going to take time off from Share Your Style but it turned into a break from everything! I feel refreshed and ready to visit and share new ideas again with you! πŸ’œ 

What have I been doing: Painting our master bedroom is almost completed… I am finishing up the ceiling today and am just waiting for the last of Coat 1 to dry so I can stand down below and roll a light second coat over the whole thing (ugh!). Definitely NOT professionally spray painted! WHY the last owners chose to paint EVERY ceiling coffee brown… The crown moulding and walls turned out beautifully. After almost 30 years of painting rooms, I’m getting pretty good at it. πŸ˜‰

And I am back in the Craft Room (which I have really yet to share) working on making it happy! So, I’ll be sharing those posts soon. πŸ™‚ I am excited to share all these summer inspired posts with you…

Here’s what I shared this past week at French Ethereal…

A Five Minute Picnic Basket for Two ~ Part of this month’s $10 on the 10th challenge. πŸ˜‰ This was a fun post to write and really quick to put together. Looking forward to more picnics this summer and into fall…

And here are this week’s featured posts…

  1. Barb,
    Like you , I have taken hardly any breaks from blogging…Glad you enjoyed your time away and with school out, now have some free time on your hands!!
    Thanks for taking the time to host this charming party every week! I appreciate the time and effort that you put into it! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!
    Hugs,
    Debbie

  2. Wow two features! Thank you πŸ™‚
    Glad to hear that your two weeks refreshed you. You really deserve it after this last year and all that you went through Barb.
    Sorry to hear that your peonies didn’t bloom. But they did survive the freeze, right?

    1. Hi Rachelle! Yes, they were under straw and survived just fine. They are just three years old and I’d heard that it takes four years before peonies will bloom, but it may be that I haven’t fed them enough (only once this spring), too. I’ll put out fertilizer this week and see if I can’t get them to bloom while my MIL and SIL are here. πŸ™‚

      Thanks again,
      Barb πŸ™‚

  3. Barb, it sounds like you had a wonderful little blogging break! I have so much painting to do in my house this summer and I have been super lazy! My upstairs hallway has been taped off for painting for about 2 months and I still haven’t gotten around to the actual painting part! Thanks so much for the feature this week. That was a wonderful surprise!

  4. So glad you took the time for some self-love and projects you wanted to get checked off the list Barb! It’s nice seeing your posts in my email again.

  5. Hi Barb- I’m so glad you took some time off and recharged & refreshed. It’s so important to take care of ourselves. I am glad to see you back though 😊 and I appreciate the feature on my fountain. We absolutely love sitting out there with the sound of the water in the background. Have a wonderful, crafty week! XO- MaryJo
