Celebrate Your Story! #229
Celebrate Your Story! Link Party
Hello friends! Welcome to another Celebrate Your Story! I hope you’re all well and holding it together. I took a break from the blog last week and started making fabric masks. A request came through my church, and I knew this was a way I could help out. It’s been very therapeutic for me to make these masks, as I enjoy sewing but also to be doing something useful. I know it’s not much, but it’s something.
Thanks for coming to the party…let’s get stated!
As I recently designed a blue and yellow tablescape myself, I was instantly drawn to this French Provincial design by Beth from Whispers of the Heart. The Ralph Lauren salad plates are gorgeous, and I love the tablecloth, too!
This breakfast hash looks just like something I’d order from my favorite diner. Oh, how I miss going out to eat! Dave from That Guy Who Grills shared this great recipe. Looks like I’ll be making my own diner style breakfast soon!
These beautiful hats are called fascinators, and Debbee from Debbee’s Buzz made them for her guests to wear at her Alice in Wonderland themed “unbirthday” party. Check out her blog to learn how to make them…there are several different styles!
Penny from Penny’s Vintage Home has created a lovely sanctuary in her backyard. It looks like the perfect place to pray, meditate or just enjoy a book and a cup of tea.
I really enjoyed taking a tour of Sandra from Dinner at Eight‘s spring garden. It starts in February when there’s still snow on the ground! The azaleas and wisteria are my favorites!
I’ve been doing more baking than usual with all of the extra time at home. Next on my list will be this lemon cheesecake from Julie of My Wee Abode. It looks so good!
The most clicked link of the week is from Deb of Dragonfly Treasure. She made this unique ribbon doorway. Not only does it block out light, but it’s decorative, too.

Thanks so much for hosting, Rebecca! It’s so sweet you’re helpingg out by making masks. I hope we never have to go through all of this again but it’s really been heartwarming to see all the people that are stepping to make things better. I hope your Mother’s Day is a blessed one! Hugs, CoCo
Thanks, CoCo. I sure hope we can put this all behind us soon. Thanks for stopping by and linking up. Stay well!
Thank you SO much for the feature, Rebecca… Let me know how your cheesecake turns out! Have a blessed week! Hugs, dear friend!
I’m going to make one for my husband as a surprise…he loves lemons and cheesecake! Have a wonderful week and stay well, my friend.
Thanks for hosting and I hope that you and your family are safe. Hope you have a wonderful week.
You too, Patrick! Stay well.
Thank you so much for hosting! This week I am excited to share some books to read this month, buffalo check decor inspiration, and vintage home style- how to decorate with soda crates! Hope you are staying safe and healthy and having a great day!
Thanks for stopping by and linking up, Kristin. Stay well!
Thanks for the party, Rebecca. Making masks is a wonderful gesture. I hope you’re doing well.
The mask making has made me feel a little less helpless with all that we’re dealing with. Thanks for being a loyal party guest, Beverly. Stay well!
That’s wonderful you’re making masks for those who need them. We’re fortunate enough that my husband’s company supplied employees and their families with masks. Have a wonderful week!
That was very generous of your husband’s company! Thanks for coming to the party, Allyson. Stay well!
I did not realize you have a link party. So glad to find out, I am looking forward to getting to know you and your blog better.
I’m glad you found the party too, Leanna. It’s so nice that we’ve connected through Craft and Chat 🙂
Thank you so much for featuring my Prayer Room…..xoxo
You’re welcome, Penny. I love the vintage touches you added to the prayer room. Stay well!
Thanks so much Rebecca and good for you to make masks, so generous of you! Loving the mix of features this week, Dave’s hash is making my mouth water!!
I know, Jenna! I’m really craving breakfast food. I need to try that recipe!
Thank you for a wonderful party and I hope you have a great week.
Thanks for coming to the party Chas! Stay safe and have a great week!
Rebecca, it made my day to see my fascinator tutorial featured —- thanks so very much! I also love how you provide a brief description of the feature and why it appealed to you. Very few linkup hostesses do that. It’s great you are making masks. Wish I found it as therapeutic as you do. It seems to go so slowly as I continue to have mechanical issues with my old machine. Are you using a “pattern” the includes the floral wire at the nose? Flannel inner lining? I’m just curious.
Your fascinators are so unique, Debbee! I’m going to make them with my daughter and have a tea party. She’ll love it!
I’m using a mask design from YouTube that uses 3 pieces of 10×8 inch cotton fabric. There is a pocket inside for a filter. For the nose, I’m using very thin bendable ribbon, but a pipe cleaner would also work. I was going to include a photo, but I’d taken it on my phone and it was too large to load onto the blog. I’ll send you an email with more information. Have a great week!
Thanks so much for hosting each week!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!
Thanks Debbie! You stay safe and healthy too!
Thanks so much for featuring my French Provincial tablescape, I really appreciate it! I added a link to your blog at the end of that post.
You’re welcome, Beth. It’s a lovely tablescape!
