It‘s Spring Break for me! I’m so ready for this to get some things done around the house. The garden is calling, as well as are many recipes that I’ve dog-eared in magazines, saved on the Web, or torn out of a magazine! It’s not just me that’s itching to get things accomplished, but also after such a long winter, many bloggers are posting about how they’ve prepared spring ingredient-based recipes, engaged in spring-cleaning, and or are just getting outside to enjoy the change in the seasons.
Last week I began featuring five inspirational bloggers from the previous week’s Fresh Clean and Pure Friday/Seasonal Saturday linked-up posts. For those who are new here, these are the themes: a foodie blog, a decor blog, a nutrition/lifestyle change blog post, a gardening/nature blog post, and a blog post focused on anything miscellaneous (quilts, hand-made items, thoughts, etc.) that matches the theme of this get-together. Here are those blogs and their posts from last week that captured the season of spring and/or how we’re freshening up our lives! I hope you can take a moment to visit some of these blogs for their great inspiration!
Kim, at Stirring The Pot, featured a classic combination in her recipe for Pastina with Peas and Carrots. I love spring peas and really enjoyed the addition of carrots in this creamy pasta. The colors are so fresh and representative of spring. Kim’s recipes never fail to satisfy her family’s and her readers’ tummies. Ya gotta check her blog out!
Three generations of women, Diane, Andrea and Emma, have created a neat concept for their blog, Tablescape Times Three, where they choose the same dinnerware and create three different tablescapes and ideas. It is really interesting to see how the three different generations design their own individual style of preparing their table setting!
Danielle’s blog, Analytical Mom, focuses on so many concepts that are near and dear to my heart and to many bloggers as well: family, food, health, sustainability, and abundant life . . . what a great overall life focus! I selected Danielle’s post on raising chickens because this woman is truly making a lifestyle change . . . she has adopted a family member’s chickens and is taking on a whole new world in doing so.
Birds must be on a lot of people’s minds lately, they certainly are the trend, along with butterflies, in interior decor right now. LindyLouMac is an ex-patriot who is living not only her dream . . . she has moved to Italy with her husband. She blogs about life in Italy, events that she attends, the music that she enjoys, and the simplicity of life around her. In this post from News From Italy, she captures one of the hardest things via camera . . . birds! To me, birds and their sweet songs, are a sure sign of spring!
Susan over at Pandora’s Cottage, took a couple of old, rusty retro aluminum yard chairs that I’ve always loved, and returned them to their glory in her post on recycling and re-using these beautiful, classic chairs for your yard or garden! I can just imagine rocking in the shade in one of these old chairs with a tall glass of ice tea on a summer day!
So now it’s time once again to share one of your posts . . . and as always, I do gently remove any post trying to sell stuff, giveaways, coupons, etc. Posts need to relate to anything fresh, clean and pure in your life, or one that is seasonal.
Please be kind and link back to this blog too . . . thanks for your blogging etiquette!
