Tuesday Turn About #150 Summer Home Ideas

Hello! Happy Tuesday!

I hope you all enjoyed a very Happy Mother’s Day! Whether you are a mom, grandmother, aunt, caretaker, or friend, I hope all had a day filled with happiness and joy!

My daughter moved back home from college on Friday, so now my family is all home together for the summer and I couldn’t be happier!

This past weekend we went to a local farm and stocked up on plants. After church on Sunday, I spent time planting some planters and my new flower boxes. I can’t wait to share them with you soon!

It is finally feeling like spring here in Connecticut. It almost feels like Mother Nature finally flipped a switch! The sunshine and warmth has me (and my kids at school) starting to think about summer vacation. Inspired by summer, I am sharing some fun projects and decorating ideas for your summer home.

Be sure to hop over to My Wee Abode and Reinvented Delaware to check out SIX additional features from Tuesday Turn About! If you haven’t been featured at My Family Thyme this week, you may have been featured there!

Weekly Household Tip

The last couple of weeks I have been sharing some fun household tips using cucumbers. You can read about them HERE and HERE. I have another for you!

Does your bathroom mirror fog up after you take a hot shower? To prevent this, try rubbing a cucumber slice along the mirror. It should help to eliminate the fog, while leaving a fresh, calming, spa-like scent.

Weekly Blogging Tip

Do you have a Facebook account for your blog? If you do, try this tip.

When featuring another blogger on your FB page, don’t add a link to the post. Try only tagging the blogger’s Facebook page in the post. It seems that FB wants us to STAY on Facebook, and when you tag another FB account, Facebook will give you more attention!

Try it. Since doing this, I’ve gotten much more activity on Facebook posts because FB is showing the posts more!

Add a Touch of Lovely Lavender

Michelle from Thistle Key Lane shared How to Make Lavender Sachets. She used beautiful cotton fabric, along with some special vintage linens too. I’d like to make some for myself, but I think these would make a wonderful gift for my room parents this year too. Who would you like to make one for?

  1. Hy Lynne, thanks so much for sharing my patriotic ideas post and doorbasket! I appreciate your sweet description, too. How nice your daughter is back home for a time, have a great rest of the week!

  2. Another great cucumber tip! But I’m on the fence about this one because it will remove my surprise ghostwriting on the mirror. LOL

  3. Hi Lynne- I am glad your family is home for the summer. Also -rubbing a cucumber on the bathroom mirror to prevent “fogging” is genius! Thank you also for the FB tip with tagging other bloggers. Definitely going to give it a try. Thank you for hosting this link party!

  4. Spring has been slow coming here in Delaware too, Lynne. But I think it is finally here!
