Funtastic Friday #291

I'm kind of in a redecorating/rearranging
mood right now. 
I'm going to be working on some changes in our living room.
I'll try to post the transformation,
so stay tuned ;)

DIY Flower box centerpiece with hydrangeas

Shelly's DIY flower box caught my eye from last week's party.
Easy to make with just a box and some fun burlap and striped ribbon. 
A quick centerpiece for any table.
And right now, I've noticed faux flowers on clearance at several craft stores'
Great for filling your box.
But you can't beat real flowers in a boxed centerpiece.


I love a bunch of fresh cut flowers.
If you're a little bit more ambitious
Make our simple wood slatted table box with handles {here}
Or check out our simple rustic wood box {here}
You could even use planted flowers or houseplants in your boxes. 

Now let's get started on this week's party....

Funtastic Friday #290

Just got back from a much needed family reunion and va-cay.
A little different this year with a pandemic but
so good to visit family, have lazy mornings, read some books, visit some shops and recharge!


S'mores Cupcakes

We had a few nights of S'mores.
A must have for late nights and a bunch of cousins.
Raquel has a fun twist on the traditional with her Smore cupcakes


How about S'mores in a bag.
Easy and portable.


How about S'mores as a gift with fun shaped marshmallows. {here}
What treats are you making this summer?
Let's check out what's shakin' and bakin' on this week's...

Funtastic Friday #289

Triple digits are killing us!
How are you surviving this summer heat? 

disney dole whip

 Time for more cool drinks like
Dawn's Disney Dole Whip pineapple sorbet
It looks delish and just the thing to cool us off. 


How about sitting out on the shaded grass,
 in a hammock or
 inside next to the AC
to read a good book.
We've got some good read ideas for adults {here}
and for teens/tweens {here} and {here}

Welcome to Funtastic Friday Link Party #289!

Funtatic Friday #288

We've had several triple digit days already this year
and this week the heat is on.

Large and small mason jars containing lemons, limes, water and ice. Displayed besdie an orange cloth napkin.

Lois' lemon lime water with coconut water
looks so refreshing!
I've been wanting to try some different infused waters
and this is on my list.
Cool and clean for a hot day!

You can find more cool summer drinks that we've rounded up for summer {here}

Kelly's Buttermilk Syrup


Years ago, my sister-in-law
introduced us to buttermilk syrup while on a visit out to their house.
I'm not really even a syrup person but,
Yum-o, I'd never had anything like it!

Funtastic Friday #286

I haven't had to work this week
so I've got my kids helping with projects. 
We had gotten so busy that a lot of things 
were put on the back burner!
Quarantine has given us that extra time...


One project for the week is cleaning out our craft/kid homework room.
It's also become a "catch all" for things we didn't have time to 
find a place for or deal with. 
Stacy's card catalog is a great storage solution.
Love that yellow she painted on it. 
She gives you all the 411 for painting on metal 
as one of our host picks this week.

Have you pulled out all your 4th of July decor?
If you've been aching to make something new and patriotic....



Try our patriotic table runner.
Sewn together with strips of any red, white and blue fabric.
I was excited with how this project turned out!

It's time to see more of your 4th of July ideas so...
Let's get right to the party!
