Fresh, Clean and Pure Friday & Seasonal Saturday

Since we are now officially in the season of Autumn, a new link-up is here to share any post related to what is in season right now and what you’re doing for this season . . . again, it can be a food recipe, a new decor, a new garden, a seasonal trip (ie:  leaf-watching as the colors of Mother Nature change!), or a new outfit, etc.  There’s even a special button for it!.

It’s still that time for all of you purists, cleaner-outer, fresher folks!   Link up any post on anything that you’ve included in your life to freshen and clean it up, whether that is your nutrition, lifestyle, decor, outfits, or outlooks!

Here are just a few of last week’s very inspirational posts that were shared and the blogger who took the time to share with us.  Those include inspiration for:
Fresh food:
Foccacia Pugliese from Natalia @ gatti fili e farina
Fresh Cinnamon Rolls from Stephanie @ Still Waters

Fresh Apple Butter from Anne @ anniebakes
Healthy Oatmeal Banana Cookies from Monica @ Lick The Bowl Good
Fresh Blueberry Panna Cotta from Mimi @ Mimi’s Kitchen

Fresh, new lifestyle/outlook on life:
48 Pounds Lost / Healthier Lifestyle from Melissa @ Melissa’s Heart and Home

Fresh look in decor:
Fresh Fall Decor from Carol @ The Gardener

Fresh flowers:
Exotic Fruit from elra @ garden at nina’s place


So here’s the routine again, that’s really simple: 
  • Add your post link (or blog link, it’s all good) with a nice title.
  • Add the photo of the post you wish to showcase.
  • Grab the link-up button and post it either in your post or somewhere on your blog (delete it over the weekend if you wish).
  • If you’re new here, please follow “la bella vita and leave a comment so that I can be sure and follow you back.  If I forget, go ahead and nag me again!
  • Please be a courteous blogger and visit a few other blogs who took the time to meet others like yourself. 
  • Give a kind comment and make their day!
  • No posts to try and sell stuff, no posts for giveaways, and no posts related to simple coupons.  
  • Many thanks for making this a fun community to learn from others!

Your comments make me smile and I promise to get right back to you both here and on your blog! I may be slow at it because I get easily distracted by something brewing in the kitchen, hummingbirds in my gardens, and student papers to grade! BUT I DO VISIT YOUR BLOG and comment back! Hey, that's what good friends are for! xo

  10. Oh my goodness, your blog is beautiful…I guess it should be given the name right??? I’m so glad I found you. Can’t wait to come back again.

    New follower here from the Friday Blog Hops…Hope you’ll swing by and return the favor.

    Lots of yummy love,

  11. Hi – I would be interested in helping you co-host your seasonal linky. I’m thinking on my holiday traditions, gifts and recipes blog. Do you think it would be to off the beaten path? It doesn’t have a lot of followers yet – like 72. But I think it would fit the seasonal theme nicely. And it doesn’t have to be just Christmas – but any Fall/Winter holiday/activity. I’d have 3 blogs to advertise it on – but the linky would be on the holiday blog.

    Let me know what you think.
