::Weekend Bloggy Reading::

Hellooooo, Friday! Are you ready for some great links to check out? Leave me a little comment love and let me know which ones you enjoy most!

Before I get started, I wanted to thank Gina for featuring a project of mine on her 12 Days of Handmade Christmas series. Check it out if you have a chance--it's not too early to start planning for Christmas!

Thanks also to The CSI Project for featuring my Salvation Army Chic Craft Table Makeover!
~Rachelle got creative with the big fork and spoon because everyone else has them..

~A lovely sunroom with Painted Floors.

~Majorly adorable Dollar Store Plaques Turned Laundry Room Signs.

~Lindsey gave her couch A Little Kick.

~Isn't this Ruffled Table Runner from Stephanie Lynn cute?
~Kate's kids get to Play in Style.
~Want some reading in book form? Check out my recent Dishing It! party for some awesome Summer Reads! We had some links added later in the game, so I hope you'll go and visit.

{What's going on with you this weekend?}

My girls are going to play at T's parents' home for awhile this morning. Should give me just enough time to head to the 'Bucks with my new giftcard from Laura (thank you!!) and run into Joann Fabric to check on something for an outdoor project I'm working on.

Much to Natalie's dismay, tonight is the last swim lesson for the summer. In two weeks, she has progressed from not wanting to jump into the pool by herself to diving (belly flopping) in and swimming (!) to her teacher! One of these days, I just might get into the pool myself without anyone hanging on me or asking for a ride. I might even get my hair wet!

Stay cool this weekend, lovelies!

  1. my mom had those fork and spoon-wonder if they're still in her cellar?? love those pillows on the white couch but even with bleach i don't think i'd touch a white slipcover-i'd be washing it every week!! have a great weekend and have a fun morning by yourself!

  2. Congrats of the feature!! I can't wait to read that 12 crafts to Christmas in July post! Thanks for the links-

  3. Congrats on being featured at CSI! I was so excited to see two of my projects there today:) We are going to a birhday party this weekend...a skating party, which always makes me feel like a kid!

  4. I never thought I could love the fork & spoon as much as Rachelle's & the ruffled table runner...omg, I want it. How cute would that be on a little girl's play table, or heck, in a craft room?! LOVE! Have fun today, I went to Joann's 2 days ago to pick up some things I'm making for the shop, be prepared to see a lot of fall decor out already. :-) Have a great weekend!

  5. Congrats to Natalie for swimming to her teacher! That is a huge accomplishment!! Bravo!!
    Love the projects you featured. That table runner is fab and love the painted floor!!

  6. Hi Amanda, Congratulations on the CSI Feature. I always enjoy your weekend reading always seem to find something that I have missed ;) Thanks so much for including the ruffled table runner. I greatly apprecite it! This weekend is a catch-up weekend around here...every now and then I need to take a step back and re-group. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks again, Stephanie Lynn

  7. Congrats on your Christmas craft feature! Censational Girl's play room is adorable. Have a great weekend!

  8. A fresh Bucks + Joanns is a heavenly day ! Have a lovely weekend my friend, as always I appreciate you and the linky love.

  9. Great links Amanda. I am off to check them out. And congratulations on being in the top 10 - you deserve it! We appreciate your CSI support.

    I am getting ready for a big family vacation that starts this weekend. Haven't even started packing yet :)


  10. Some very fun and cool ideas! We have begun our own big project spontaneously updating our kitchen so all these will certainly help me keep some ideas going!

  11. Great list. I can't even tell you how many times I've seen those fork and Spoons lately at Goodwill. I might need to pick up my own!

    BTW - I have an outdoor link party going on right now, if you finish your project this weekend.

  12. Gracious girl! You were featured all over the place this week! I do loooove that table! Soo cute! Love that tablecloth Stephanie Lynn made too. So cute!

    YEA for Natalie!

    Have a great weekend!

  13. Wow! Congrats on your blog being featured twice!!! Woo Hoo!!! What a blessing for you and everyone who reads them!!!

    You asked what we are up to this weekend...well I am throwing a surprise party tomorrow for my 15 yr old daughter...shhhhhh don't tell her! It should be such fun! And I am working on a new Friday Challenge for my blog re: Intentional Encouraging. I would love to hear what you think about it...I will be visiting some of the folks participating and leaving them encouragement as they step out of their comfort zones! Have a great weekend!!!

  14. Oh my goodness, you are SO welcome! I can't believe you linked me to your post--what an honor! You are too sweet : )

    Hope you enjoyed your coffee! Have a great weekend, Amanda.

    Lots of love!

  15. I may need to be making a table runner. =)

  16. Amanda! Just had to tell you! Her party went great! I have never seen such incredulous surprise and joy and delight all at once on a young girl's face. (joyful tears) It was worth the weeks of preparations for that one moment.

  17. Thanks for the shout out girl! I feel like I haven't talked to you in forevs! This weekend (ie. everyday this summer basically) has been so busy! And, to think it's almost gone so I'm trying to soak in this last month before school (eek) starts up.

    I checked out the summer reading post though, I need a couple new books I'm excited for the ones I wrote down! :)

    Talk soon :)

    Sorry for the novel long comment. You should add that to the reading link up ;)


I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
