Summertime Projects and TFT #395

It’s time for another Thursday Favorite Things link party, and I’m so glad you’re here.

Our “old lady baby,” otherwise known as Sunny,  had many teeth pulled several days ago. (She has one tooth left, her left lower “fang,” the tooth we call her “big scary toofer.”  (Yes, we are weird.)

She’s 13 now, so I worry a bit more about her than I used to.  (“Is her pain medicine working?”  “Why does she keep chewing on her foot?”  And so on.)  She’s had teeth pulled before, but with her age, it just seemed a little scarier this time.  She’s such a resilient dog, though!  (She was originally a puppy-mill dog.)  Here she is, one day post “surgery:”

Isn’t she the sweetest?

Now, the fact that Sunny had her teeth pulled has nothing to do with my features from last week’s party.  But what a great opportunity to remind you all how wonderful rescue dogs are and to ask you to please adopt, don’t shop!  (Most puppies at pet stores are from puppy-mills.)

My features from last week’s party are a hodgepodge of projects I want to do!  Once again, you have amazed me with your creativity.

Please pin from the original sources, and don’t forget to leave a comment with your link number when you share your posts. Thanks!

Here are my features from last week’s party:

Learn how to preserve fresh flowers 4 simple ways at Yarn Scissors Silk.  I actually just did this with flowers from my daughter’s wedding bouquet a few months ago!

Julie, from My Wee Abode, shows us how to decorate with a simple window frame.  I love this!

Do you have a piece of furniture you would like to refinish to shabby chic?  I do!  Ahna, from Hammers n Hugs, shows us how.

As a stationery and journal lover, I have quite a bit of washi tape.  I admire it more than I use it, though. I love these bright washi tape cards and envelopes from White House Crafts.  What a fun way to use it.

And, finally, these S’mores brownies from My Recipe Treasures, are making me long for a trip to Sam A. Baker State Park.  My sister, niece, my kids and I used to make an almost yearly trip there, and we always made s’mores outside our cabin.  Those were definitely simpler days.

  1. Thanks so much for hosting each week!! My link Ups for this week are #63 and # 64!!

  2. Thanks for hosting, Pam! Those s'more brownies…that is just pure torture this morning! I still have to be really careful with my fat intake so unless they are made with no-fat yogurt, I bet they are not going in m'belly. Sending my sunshine to your Sunny – what a sweet old baby, and I totally hear you about those emotions with an aging pet. I would often remind myself that it was a blessing that my Bella did NOT outlive me since she would be sad. I'm sharing at #85 – it's a before/after of our ugly bedroom wall and how we fixed it in just one evening. It isn't the cheapest DIY out there, but buy once, cry once, yes?

    1. Thanks for being here, Michele! I have to watch my fat intake too. Boo. Aw, I feel the same way about Sunny–She would be so sad if she outlived me. She is so attached. Yes, buy once, cry once! I love that!
