Dishing It & Digging It Link Party #113

Welcome to our party!!
First of all, I want to say, Always Remember September 11, 2001.

It is a day in history we shall never forget.
A day in history that we lost thousands of lives.

A day in history  to honor the fallen, honor our heroes, survivors and the families left behind.

The weather is cooling.  The evenings and morning are much cooler.  I made this yummy Potato soup this week and also shared some with a neighbor who is recovering from surgery.

Creamy Potato Broccoli, Cheddar Soup

I also shared an update on our Glam guest bedroom
It is all coming together  nicely.

So, now let me turn this over to this week's host.

I'm so glad you joined us today!!

First, before I go any farther, I want to remember and honor those that lost their lives on 9/11. I will never forget that day. I appreciate you allowing me a moment to thank and remember the ones that sacrificed and gave.

We've had so many new link ups and it's amazing how much our party has grown and that's all due to YOU! Thank you for sharing all of creative ideas!!

Back in my neck of the woods, the weather has turned back to scorching. So, I sprang into action to get my spray painting done, because before I know it, winter will be nipping at my heels!
I love how these barstools turned out!

Barstools Makeovers
You might remember the first set I painted white. Well, there's a reason why I did the second set in orange. You'll just have to stop in and find out why. ;)

But now we are going to get this party started!! 

I just love what Joy did here! So simple and rustic!

I must need some MORE chocolate in my life...

I never knew that you could print on watercolor paper for more texture. Great tip!

I just LOVE the detail and color!

This sign is so true! Loving that font and color.
