::Weekend Bloggy Reading:: Link Up!

Welcome to Weekend Bloggy Reading. I hope you'll link up your best post of the week today, and maybe leave me some comment love!

All kinds of posts are welcome--recipes, crafts, funny stories, home decor, etc.; but please do not link to Etsy shops, businesses, items for sale, etc. (I have a Sponsors section, if you'd like to Advertise with me.)

Here are a few of my faves from this week:
sources listed below

~Desperately want to try these 4th of July Luminaries that Andrea whipped up.

~The rug in Yvonne's Outdoor Room really anchors the space.

~Beckie gave a yard sale trash can a Chevron Makeover.

~Jen made some 10 Minute 4th of July T-Shirts. I bet you could find 10 minutes to make one before Monday!

~And me? This week featured:
Time to link up your best post of the week (please take the time to include a link-back or my party button and visit some of the other participants!)

Here's the button code if you'd prefer to use that rather than a link-back:
Weekend Bloggy Reading

Party is open until 10 pm (ET) on Sunday night.

Remember that blog parties work best when bloggers participate, so if you have a chance to visit a few of the other links, you might find a new friend or two!

Today is the last day of VBS, and I will be glad to sleep in for a few mornings. A birthday party the girls are invited to, maybe a bit of beach trip shopping. Nothing major planned for the 4th yet...T always works, so I'm hoping I can convince him to let us have an impromptu cookout when he gets home.

What are you up to this weekend?

I'll be back tomorrow with some highlights from Weekend Bloggy Reading!
