June Round-Up and an Important Reminder

Wow! Can you believe that June is nearing its end? It went by really fast for me! How about you? I know that it is often filled with vacations and time away from home so I thought I would do a round-up of my favorite posts just in case you missed any! And…be sure to get your posts ready, too, because I have a reminder of some big news! I’ll be sharing it again in a minute.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT French Grain Sack RugHere is my first project for June…a seagrass rug that I transformed with some frenchy touches to create my French grain sack rug! Hey…even the floor isn’t safe from frenchiness at my house!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Simple Summer CenterpieceNext, I used an abandoned bird nest and tiny bluebird eggs plus a vintage blue Mason jar filled with a grocery store bouquet to create a simple summery centerpiece. I love the touches of my favorite color combination…blue and yellow!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Burlap and Canvas Sailboat Pillow You know me…I can’t let a month go by without adding to my growing pillow collection! I used a real postage stamp graphic to create this vintage-look burlap and canvas sailboat pillow…summery and fun! You will find a tutorial plus the free graphic here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Collecting Clay CookersI also showed you my new duck and shared my unusual collection of  clay cookers. You will also find one of my favorite recipes using the cookers…Hungarian chicken paprika.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Country Living Inspired Filament Bulb Candles I used a free graphic from Country Living to create these vintage filament bulb candle wraps and shared my favorite method for aging paper. You will find the paper-aging tutorial here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Sheet Music SailboatsI made some fun vintage sheet music sailboats to add some little summery touches around the house. I am now quite good (if I do say so myself) at making origami boats and have made several for my sweet little grandsons. If you would like to try your hand at it, you will find links to instructions here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Strawberry Tunnel Cake And if you are looking for a quick and super-easy no-bake dessert for the summer months, have I got a recipe for you…although using the word “recipe” is stretching it! It’s my strawberry tunnel cake! You will not believe how simple and delicious it is! And I think it’s just perfect for the 4th of July!

The Scoop And finally…my big news! I was excited to announce that I will be joining the ladies as a host at The Scoop linky party! You can see all the details here. I have been sharing my ideas with you for almost five years now you can share yours with me…right here on my blog!
