~ What to do Weekends # 119

Happy Thursday Evening &
Welcome back to What to do Weekends Party Party!
We hope you all have been having a wonderful week! We'd like to take a minute
to  thank you all so much for your Participation in our party! We truly enjoy seeing all your creativity and wonderful insights!   Thank you for returning and sharing with us each week!   So, what have we been up to?

Here is what Theresa's has been up to:
~We can hardly wait to see what you've been up to this week! 
We encourage you to share some of your last 
year's Spring posts, too!
 Let's  get on with the FEATURES! YAY!

DIY~Make Your Own Vintage Floral Cone

I have had the most fun working on this pretty project!  I bought the stems (that I have always wanted  but couldn't afford) at Michael's because I had 70% off!!  That's the only reason I could get the ones I always wanted!  I'm telling you, watch the ads, wait and go in when you have a extra percentage off coupon pulled up on your smartphone!  I thought I bought them to make my Spring into Summer Wreath for my front door.  As I was working, separating the stems,  I realized how much sheer volume I had and quickly was aware that I could make more than just the wreath out of them! Woohoo!! So my brain started racing with ideas of what else I could do with this abundance of beauty!

Happy Thursday Evening &
Welcome back to What to do Weekends Party Party!
We hope you all have been having a wonderful week! We'd like to take a minute
to  thank you all so much for your Participation in our party! We truly enjoy seeing all your creativity and wonderful insights!   Thank you for returning and sharing with us each week!
As promised last week,  we will be adding a couple EXTRA features this week from last weeks party!
So, what have we been up to?
Well, I don't know if you've had a chance to check our Linda's Yummy Blueberry recipes yet, but if not, her Blueberry Breakfast Bake is one not to be missed! So yummy!
As for me, I have been working very hard on trying to complete my newest chalk paint tray, that has turned into an Epic Fail! But it is is on it's way to becoming a Beautiful Success! I should be able to share that with you tonight or tomorrow. Trays and chalk paint, they are bit of an obsession of mine, but I do use them all the time!  You can check out my first Chalk Painted Tray out HERE!


***Just Couple of Guidelines 
that we'd truly appreciate you taking into consideration.
We have prided ourselves on being a "no rules" type of party, and that will not change. We would appreciate it if, however, you:
~You wouldn't link up the exact same post 2 weeks in 
a row, our readers will have just seen your entry and we'd 
like to keep it fresh for them.
~We'd love to encourage you to share some of your last 
year's Spring posts, too! Please, do have a look at Linda's & Theresa's blog style (or niche, so-to-speak) and link appropriate and like-minded crafts, recipes, projects and Inspirations!

How Music Speaks To Us

Certain things just ring true.  Does that happen to you?
Sometimes they ring so true,  I have a deep need to share them.  My faith sung out loud is one of those things. Not just any song.  There are some songs, though, whose truth so reflect the feelings in my heart,  that they can bring a smile to my face that can't be wiped away,  or bring tears of utter Joy.

(source)
This is one of those songs.  I hope that it will light up your Friday night or anytime that you choose to hear it.  Not just listen, but hear.  Words have power.  I don't think anyone would question that.  So,  I guess, then,  the question really is...... are we listening to the right words?  I'm trying. I fail. Still, I try.

My Elegant Little Eggs ~ You Won't Believe What these Were!

Good Afternoon to you all! Thanks for visiting with me today. I'm so glad you are here!  Well, Easter will be quickly on us, and truthfully I'm not a big decorator for this Special Holy Day.  I really love to spend time at church and with my family and be mindful and grateful of what Christ did for us all and celebrate my Salvation, because of it. That being the most important thing of all.

 I did, however, have time in the past couple of weeks to fiddle around with something I'm really enjoying.  I have been seeing eggs all over the web and blog world, as I am sure you have. Very beautiful, creative versions of how to decorate an egg of any kind.
The one thing I hadn't seen: was any chalk painted eggs! and, as we know, I love my chalk paint! Especially, when I can tint it easily for pastels! But, I really wanted it to also be frugal. So, I bought these dollar store plastic eggs to start with!  8 of them for $1.

WELCOME TO THE PARTY, EVERYONE!!

Thanks to all the partygoers!! There are so many many wonderful ideas. Can I tell you it is excruciatingly hard to pick out features for this party because EVERYONE needs to be featured. I know how much thought (and work) goes into each blog post!  We try to pin several links because every link deserves some love. Do you agree? Let's pin together!! Pin the person ahead of you in the party.

Here's what we've been up to:

Theresa's apple and pear crisp that's also gluten-free. Nice.



Linda made a Bunny Basket out of an old pine drawer salvaged from the side of the road.



Follow our social media.. much appreciated.
