Happiness is Homemade #491

Welcome to Happiness is Homemade! I’m choosing the features for the month of February. Before we get to this week’s features, let’s check out what’s been going on here on the blog over the past few days. Be sure to head over and link up on Crafty Creators before you go! Linda from A Labour of Life is choosing our features for the month of August and writing the features section.

This week we had our monthly Sustainable Pinterest Challenge, and I shared this Sunshine Box idea with free printable gift labels and a gift box tag. These are perfect for get well gifts, as a pick-me-up, or a “just because” gift. I gave one to my son’s homeroom teacher and made sunshine jars for the rest of his teachers.

Now on to the Party!

Welcome to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party.  We are excited about another month of sharing, linking, reading, pinning and inspiration. Linda, from A Labour of Life is our hostess for the month of August, so let’s get started.

As I said last week though, when my life gets overwhelming I seek inspiration from all of you. I’m hoping to get some fun ideas this week. If you missed last week’s party, hop back and see all the fun.

Come dazzle us with what you are making, baking, or creating this week.

Cloche Seashell Tablescape

Masterpieces of My Life is sharing a late summer table scape straddling the end of summer and also looking forward towards the quickly approaching Fall season. Summer is winding down in late August so this table includes summer vibes set outdoors with seashells, but also includes some small nods towards Fall which is fast approaching with moody copper accents and woodsy details.

Bacardi Rum Punch

Next up is a tasty cocktail from Organized Island. This Bacardi rum punch is a colorful tropical cocktail that is refreshing and easy to make. Talk about elevating a summer day or evening!

The natural flavors of the three juices gives this drink a lovely tropical flavor. It is also one of those beautiful alcoholic beverages that are so sippable!


How To Paint A Wooden Bench

Have a wooden bench that you want to paint and put outside? In this post, they share how to paint a wooden bench for outdoor use,

These all-in-one products don’t need topcoats, so you’ll save time and money on your project. Plus, they are rated for outdoor use!

Back to School Lunch Ideas

Mommy Hates Cooking is sharing some fun bts lunch ideas. She tells us that Even in the midst of homeschooling her daughter, she still wants to have some fun lunches like these ready for her lunchtime at home.

Even at home she is up for the challenge with these simple ideas!

Easy Instant Pot Clam Chowder

This easy instant pot clam chowder from The Happy Mustard Seed is incredibly tender, flavorful, delicious, and creamy! My pressure cooker clam chowder recipe shows you how to make restaurant-style food at home with ease.
