  1. Lots os cute things..lots..and that dough looks and sounds interesting..will try..have tried a few different ones lately and all are 100%!!One is from FRench girl's mamie..I wrote about it:)
    Made sushi..well California rolls and loved your sauce as a dipping sauce:)TY!!

    1. So pleased that you enjoyed the sauce with your California rolls Monique! You are welcome! Xoxo

  2. I always enjoy seeing what you find and today I see one that I have used --those cupcake liners over a glass to keep the bugs out. It really works. The warm weather does bring out the bugs and they no longer get to enjoy my drinks. So simple and inexpensive too. Hope you have a fantastic Friday!

    1. Thanks Pam! It’s so nice to hear a first hand account of how well something works! Hope your day is going well! Xoxo

  3. Wow, that was a lot of fun items to look at and ponder upon. I particularly liked the various crocheted items; especially the bottle jars.
    Thanks for the photos of setting a table and folding the napkins. I don’t do a formal table often; but you never know when you might get that moment.
    Keeping bugs out of your drinks is super good. I really liked the fruit ice cube idea.
    I love paperdolls so that was fun. The S’mores menu looked yummy!
    This was a fun one and I always like visiting a fewof the links.
    Thanks for your hard work on these.
    Blessings and hugs!
