Funtastic Friday #278

I thought maybe I'd lose some weight during quarantine
but no..
we've got a lot of baking going on here, 
which is fun and I love trying new recipes,
but we're packin' a few extra pounds ;)

Lois' blueberry muffins look delish
and are on our baking list.

We'll be making our zucchini carrot muffins again this week.
Great for breakfast...or a snack.
What are you baking?
We all might find a new recipe to try from this week's 
Funtastic Friday link party. 
Love seeing what you're up to during quarantine.
So let's get the party started!

Funtastic Friday #277

We planted a little garden last month with plant starts
and are adding to it this week with seeds.
 In addition, I always like to have a few pots of herbs along with the garden.
I plant the herb pots near the garden where the sprinklers will water them. ;)
We've already used some basil leave for pizza last night. 
Love that smell of freshly picked herbs.

Chalk painted, farmhouse style herb planter with words basil, rosemary and mint stamped on them

After seeing Pamela's cute farmhouse painted pots,
I think we need to spruce up our herb pots!
Just crushing on the weathered white paint and type face lettering!

It think the painted pots will look great with our painted garden stakes.

There's a really easy way to regrow lettuce from scraps. Find out how at

And an extra shout out from last week's link party 
 to the Drug Store Diva's tutorial on growing lettuce from your lettuce head scraps.
 I didn't realize you could do this! 
We're up for the lettuce experiment and will give it a try!

What have you been doing out in the yard during quarentine?
Looking forward to all your ideas and DIY's this week...

Funtastic Friday #276

Welcome back to another week of Funtstic Friday!
What are some of the good parts of quarantine?
I've got over half of my kids at home, 
which seems like Christmas almost.
They've been wanting to try out new recipes 
(so I don't have to cook much!),
we've gotten a lot of yard work done,
I actually had time to read a book and I'm starting on my second,
I'm starting to do yoga some mornings again
(thanks @amytennyyoga on You Tube),
the kids have connected with cousins via social media,
we've done some craft/art projects,
more family time to talk about important things,
and home projects we've been putting off are getting done!

My craft space is the one place that is always at the end of my home organizing list.
It becomes the "catch all" for everything since it seems I'm always in a rush.
Now that I've gotten the chance to slow down,
I'm working on it!
And Krafty Creations has some great tips for organizing this space.
You can find more organizing tips {here}

Can't wait to see what you've linked up this week!
Especially looking for Mother's Day ideas....

Funtastic Friday #274

We're trying to make the most out of this quarantine period
and cooking up some new recipes.
It's a good time to make the dishes you've been wanting to bake but never had time for.

Homemade bread sliced with butter and jam. We made some strawberry freezer jam earlier in the week
and Lois' Amish bread might be just the thing to go with it.
My girls have been wanting to make homemade bread--now's our chance!

And we've got to make some of Kristin's buttermilk biscuits.
Out of the oven with our homemade jam---mmmm!
You can find more of our bread recipes {here}.

Looking forward to your Easter ideas on.... 
Funtastic Friday!
