Happiness Is Homemade

Can you believe that it is almost the end of June? I think I was just saying it is the end of May. Wow time is flying fast this summer.

I  love getting to know other bloggers and what they are doing and creating. I hope that you do too. That's one reason we encourage you to check out other guests' posts and Pin them or Tweet them. And if you are not a blogger and just love visiting blog posts, please let those bloggers know by commenting on their posts. We all love comments!

Happiness is Homemade Link Party 226 Features of the Week

So let's get started with some great features. I have a little DIY, a couple of recipes (beverage and dessert) and a beautiful garden to share. I was intrigued when I saw the title to this post shared by Vineta of The Handyman's Daughter: How to Apply Edge Banding to Plywood. I've done a few simple carpentry projects in my DIY life using plywood and there is always the issue of covering the raw edges. This tutorial gives you everything you need to know. I've Pinned it and if you thing you might ever need to make something with wood, so should you. Happiness is Homemade Link Party 226. Share your DIY, recipe, home decor, gardening posts.

Disclosure: Lisa of  The Purple Hydrangea is a personal blogger friend of mine who lives about 1 hour away and we are part of a group of Texas bloggers who get together about 4 times a year for (exchange of blog ideas) lunch. But I didn't realized this was Lisa's post when I clicked on it. I just knew I loved the look of this farmhouse bench and I wanted to know how to make it. She shows you how to create a farmhouse finish on new wood and make it look like it had been sitting in grandma's kitchen for decades. I happen to know that this picture is from Lisa's booth at the McKinney Antique Mall, which is one of my favorites in the area. Happiness is Homemade Link Party 226.

I love galettes, which are France's version of pie. Instead of dough carefully placed in a pie plate, galettes are more free~formed. This berry~filled galette created by Brandi of Home Cooking Memories is easy if you are pie shy. And it's made for individual servings. Love that.

Summer is the time for sipping something cold and refreshing and this Rosé Sangria from Kit of  The Kittchen not only looks cold and refreshing, but it's just so darn pretty. Love those glasses and straws. Drink, anyone?

 Another Disclaimer: Carol of  The Red Painted Cottage is also a personal blogger friend. She's from Michigan and we formally met 2 years ago at Haven Conference. As it turns out, her son lives about an hour away from Dallas and she was visiting a few weeks ago which called for a blogger lunch (Any excuse for lunch is a good one.) She mentioned that her peonies were blooming in Michigan and I lamented that mine were already done and gone. When I clicked on this party link, I discovered that this gorgeous peony was hers. I had to read about it. I don't know anyone who doesn't love peonies so I hope you enjoy this post, too. Happiness is Homemade Link Party 226. Share your DIY, recipe, home decor, gardening posts.

That's it for this week's features. Even though I'm not hosting after this week, I'll still be reading, Pinning and (trying to) commenting. Have a wonderful weekend and please visit all my fellow

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

My husband loves brownies and I like to find new ways to make them. When I saw this recipe on Martha Stewart I thought he would like them. Her recipe called for making home made brownies. I already had a box of brownie mix so I decided to use that instead.

Also, she used chocolate chunks and I decided to use dark chocolate chips.

Happy Sunday, Monday, Tuesday or whichever day you are reading Happiness is Homemade Link Party 224. I'm just happy that you dropped in to share what you have been working on and what you want to read about. Summer is in full swing, but I can't say that it is any slower or more relaxed, but I sure want it to be that way. Reading through our features and linked up posts is a great way to make your day slow down. So please enjoy the party.

Happiness is Homemade Link Party 224

I love being hostess this month. It's really fun to choose each week's Happiness is Homemade features. But it's also the hardest job, because there is just so much darn good stuff you all are creating out there. I also love being introduced to other bloggers I may not know. So keep up the good work. And if you are not a blogger, we love having you here to read about your favorite subjects. It's a win~win for everyone.
