Thursday Favorite Things

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

Can you believe this is the last day in February? It might be a short month but it went fast. The weather was up and down and rather crazy. I wonder what March will bring? Will spring try to show its face? Let's hope so. 

Many of my features come from you my commenters. Don't forget to leave your Linkup Number or Post Title so I can find you and you could become one of my featured commenters next week.

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

I am so delighted that you are here. This is the last WWBH in February. Yikes, it went by so fast. Are you feeling that way too? Maybe it is this crazy weather, hot, cold windy, repeat?  At least we can snuggle up and enjoy seeing all of the fabulous posts.

You're the Star - Garden Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Garden Feature Week!

Here we are on the last Monday in February. I know some of you have had some extreme wind conditions up north. Hope you are all safe and dealing with this interesting winter. March is around the corner and hopefully spring will be coming soon. This week's feature might help since it is all about the Garden. Enjoy!

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

I am going Green to day! With St. Patrick's Day coming soon, I choose some awesome features that you might want to try. 

I am still working on the house as we get it ready to sell. We are doing somethings that were NOT on the list, like putting in plants along the side of the house. We had some there but I didn't like them so we took them out. Yesterday, we decided to put some back. Now that bed is a little over 40 feet. We couldn't have picked something smaller to tackle and of course it is in the sun and it was a hot one today - 87 degrees. I felt like a lobster.

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade!

Can you believe that this is the last Saturday in February? Time is flying and soon it will be March. Hopefully it will mean warmer weather.  I know some are having some strong winds and ice. Hope you are safe and keeping warm.

With Mardi Gras fast approaching, Audrey has some info about that holiday. Check out her comments below:

Those of you outside of the Gulf Coast might not be familiar with Mardi Gras. The literal translation is Fat Tuesday, the Day before Ash Wednesday when you eat all of the fatty sweet foods in your home before Lent begins. But, in New Orleans and the surrounding areas the celebration has become a weeks long secular party filled with parades and music and beads that can start as early as January 6th. I hope the features this week inspire you to celebrate the spirit of Mardi Gras at home with recipes, crafts and tablescapes. And since we are learning about the world, I added one wordly DIY project. Stop by the featured posts and say hi from the Happiness is Homemade Krewe (that's how they spell crew in NOLA ;) ) Laissez les bons temps rouler! ~Audrey from Munofore.

Thursday Favorite Things

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

It seems as though another winter storm has hit the north. Hope you are keeping safe and warm. Sorry to say that we are having beautiful weather here in south Florida. I have been working outside in my flower beds and in my barn. It is so nice to spend all day outside. The dogs love it. They are so tired when we come in. They sleep well.

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

I don't often tell you how much you mean to me that you stop by. I look forward to seeing all of your posts and visiting you. I must confess that lately I am very behind in answering you comments, but I have read them and visited you. We are in the process of getting our home ready to sell. I am exhausted, but trying to "do it all, I guess".  Please know that I do appreciate you and hope that you are patient with my returning comments.

You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Home Feature Week!

I know that February is a short month but wow, it is flying by. Only 10 more days in this month. I guess I am hoping that the days go slowly. I am cleaning, painting, scrubbing and sorting everything in my home. We are getting ready to sell it so I am going crazy and wish I had more hours in my day. 

Have you ever sold your house? If you have, you know it is a crazy time. Hopefully, one day soon I will get to relax. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the party.

Peas and Pancetta Side Dish with Fresh Parmesan

Peas and Pancetta Side Dish with Fresh Parmesan

I don't know about you, I love to find different sided dishes. Peas are one of our favorite vegetables and we also love pancetta, so this seemed to be a great combination. 

Eclectic Red Barn: Peas and Pancetta with Parmesan Cheese

Many of these side dishes add onions to them and although I love onions, my stomach does not. So no onions in my dish, I added some fresh Parmesan cheese on top. 

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

Spring is trying to come to south Florida. The weather has warmed up quite a bit - low 80s. Evenings are still cool so it is nice. Hope the weather were you are isn't too cold. 

I haven't posted a lot lately, we are getting our house in Davie ready to sell. Lots of little things to do. I have gone through almost every closet and drawer. Purging so much. That part feels great, but trying to decide what furniture to keep has been over whelming. Going from a 3800 sq. ft house to a 2000 sq ft. has it challenges, but I am getting there. So you may not see too much from me, until after march when we put the house on the market. I will not stop my parties however.

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade!

Winter has been crazy with warm temps then very cold and then warm again.  Some places are having more snow than usual, while California is experiencing devastating weather conditions. I hope you are all safe. Although spring is not here yet, Audrey is getting us in the mood.

As a promise of good things to come when Spring finally gets here again, I have some lovely flower and fruit themed features for you all this week: a few vintage recipes, some lovely images, an inspired home decor project and some gardening too. I'd love it if you took a few moments to stop by the featured blogs as well as our hosts blogs just to say hello. I hope you all stay warm and dry this week. ~Audrey from Munofore

Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade!

I am so excited that you have stopped by our party. I hope your weekend has been going well. Mine is OK. Car issues are never a joy. We drove up to our other house on Thursday and the trip was rather uneventful until we were about an hour out. We could tell the car was not doing well. At first we thought we had gotten some bad gas but the closer we came, other issues started to happen. Long story short, we did arrive safely but now need our transmission fixed.  That, we were not expecting and we have to leave it for a week. We keep a second car here that is old, so we are hoping it makes it home. 

Now a few words from your HIH host for February:

Welcome to the party! I hope everyone survived the cold last week. It is just hitting us here in Southern California after 4 days of rain. It is nice to see the sun, but it is so cold my 10 year old actually put on a sweatshirt without arguing! Our features from the amazing posts shared at last week's party are "I'll take Potpourri for 1000, Alex", a little of this and a little of that. I hope you take a moment to visit the featured blogs and our hosts too. ~Audrey from Munofore

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Are you getting ready for Valentine's Day? I got out a few pillows, does that count. I am spending all of my time sorting drawers, cupboards, closets and everything in between. Isn't it amazing how much we can collect. Well, I am trying to cut that down. Hopefully, the whole house will be much more organized.

You're The Star - Creative Feature Week


Welcome to You're The Star - Creative Feature Week

The Super Bowl has come and gone. Hope your team won. I am going out on a limb here and say that I thought the commercials were the worst I have seen. Although the best one was where all of the retired players were at the banquet when the gold ball fell to the floor. Now that was great!

 It is February and the weather has warmed up in most places. At least warmer than it was. Valentine's Day is fast approaching. Do you decorate for Valentine's Day. I do a little but I did manage to make a goodie for my honey. You can see it below.

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Bites

No Bake Oreo Cheesecake Bites

With Valentine's Day only a few days away, how about a tasty morsel for your sweetie, or maybe just to indulge yourself. The nice thing about these bites are that they are "bite size"!  So if you are trying to watch the calories, these little bites will do the trick. Now I can't say they are low calories, but you only need a small bite to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Over The Moon Linky Party

Welcome to Over The Moon Linky Party

The Super Bowl is due to start soon. Are you ready for it? Do you have a favorite? I hope no one goes crazy, but I don't really care. I do enjoy watching the commercials and the half time, but the rest of it doesn't really matter. I hope if you are a big super bowl fan that you enjoy it.

I picked some great posts for Valentine's Day and even a pizza for the super bowl.  Don't forget to leave your post linkup number of post Title so I can stop by and you could be my feature next week.

Happiness Is Homemade

Happiness is Homemade Link Party

I hope that you are experiencing some warmer weather. Ours has been so much warmer although we had some rain. I don't mind. my garden could use it. My friend and I went to pick strawberries this morning. We tried not to eat too many, they were so good. I didn't make anything exciting to put them on, I thought we would just have some with whipped cream.

We have a new host for the next two months and you can get to know Audrey by checking out what she has to say below.

Hi there, It's Audrey from Munofore, not to be confused with Audrey from That Recipe. She is a crazy lady that talks to herself. Okay, okay! I am the crazy lady... with two blogs: That Recipe (food) and Munofore (MUsings NOt FOod RElated: mostly crafts, gardening, and healthy aging posts these days). Add in a husband and 10 year old son, is it any reason I talk to myself? I have the privilege of picking our features for the next two months and I am so excited! I will be trying to pick some new bloggers as well as those that have been partying with us for years and to select a nice mix of food, crafts, decor and more for you every week. Let's get this party started already! Who is surprised I have a Valentine's Day theme going with our features this week? Hopefully no one. There were so many wonderful ideas last week you may want to stop by and see all of them.
