Who's Ready for a Party? Tuesdays with a Twist

Our news this week...  Summer is winding down.  There will be school buses buzzing thru the neighborhood again, beginning tomorrow morning.  I love seeing all the cute children in their shiny new shoes, carrying their crisp but heavy laden backpacks.  It's almost harvest time for apples and pumpkins, isn't it?

Oxalis, with its vibrant green foliage and tiny pink trumpets is perfect for the front of any shady flower bed.

I am so glad you are here to party today!  There is no limit on links as long as they are family friendly including giveaways, Etsy shops and other link parties.  Please remember to visit some fellow party animals and leave positive comments!

Favorite Family Recipe * OOPS Lemon Pie *


Are you ready for a sentimental post?  Maybe it's the comforting combination of food and family that always gets me a bit misty when writing for this particular type of challenge?  'Not sure.  Today, I'm sharing our Son-In-Law's favorite pie along with photos from the day he 'officially' became a member of our family.

Garden Guest: Swallowtail on Calibrachoa


The north side of our front yard is a certified  National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat.  Really!  We have a certificate!  You can do the same by providing food, water, cover and places for wildlife to raise their young.  It is so much fun to see all of the critters that stop by for a visit.  Children love it!

Tuesdays with a Twist *LINK PARTY*

Our news this week...  Handsome Husband took some time away from work so our grandson could spend a few days with us before returning to school.  Mr. Big Stuff is 12 now!  None of us are getting younger, are we?  ;-)  They had a great time together doing all kinds of "boy stuff".  I had to work, but enjoyed the evenings with them.  Saturday, we played some intense 36 holes of putt putt golf then went to lunch at a nearby pizza place.  Summer is winding down, isn't it?

Tuesdays with a Twist LINK PARTY

Our news this week...  We did a bit of back to school shopping with the teens.  It was fun to hang out with them for a while.  They are very slow to make decisions on purchases, but everyone now has a backpack.  The long list of supplies still need to be purchased, but the kiddos are getting excited to begin school again.  The three youngest grandchildren begin a week earlier than the older ones.  August is almost here!

No Thank You

One of my favorite blogs is Healthy Helper.  Today, Kaila has taken on the writing prompt "No Thank You" and discusses some things she would rather not have in her life.  Her post then transitions to expressing gratitude for favorite activities, items and people with "Thank You, More Please".

I think both are wonderful writing prompts, but have limited myself to five for the "No Thank You" list.  In no particular order, this is what popped into my head.

Yo Yo Party People! It's Tuesdays with a Twist Time

Our news this week...  Rain and cooler temps visited our area the last couple of days, for which we are very grateful.  Our rain barrels were completely empty and plants were looking awfully crispy.  This morning though, things are much greener.

Tractor Seat Transoformation

Are you ready for another de-stash challenge?  Me, too!

Meet Your Hosts


Here's where my project begins.


My Matriarch Aunt asked me if I wanted this tractor seat from my grandparents' farm.  Easy decision!  Of course I said, "YES!" planning to create something immediately.
