Celebrate Your Story! #283
Celebrate Your Story! Link Party
Hey there friends! It’s an exciting week here at our house…my daughter is going back to school tomorrow!!! Since everyone in my family has been vaccinated, and with minimal COVID cases reported at the elementary schools, we decided to let her complete the remainder of the school year in person. She is beyond excited! I’m also looking forward to going out for coffee with my best friend, Meredith and hitting some thrift shops. We haven’t done that together for well over a year. I can’t wait 🙂
Here’s what I was up to last week:
Now, let’s start the party!
I’m obsessed with this cool collection of vintage treasures! Kristi from French Creek Farmhouse shared her lovely Spring Home Tour. Check out her post to see the rest of her cozy farmhouse styled for Spring!
Don’t you just love peonies? I sure do! Rachelle from My Hubbard Home has some great tips to keep your beautiful cut peonies fresh and she shares her secret to extending the blooming period!
Estelle from Homemade on a Weeknight has created the perfect summer meal…a Dill Shrimp Salad Sandwich! This light salad has a greek yogurt and dijon mustard dressing, plus celery, cucumber, red onion and Old Bay Seasoning. I’ll definitely be making some of these soon!
Did you know that May 20th was World Bee Day? Denise from My Home of All Seasons designed a fun Bee Themed Tiered Tray. It looks so bright and happy in her kitchen!
I’m absolutely swooning over this Citrus Themed Tablescape from Renae of Peacock Ridge Farm. You’ve got to see the wisteria growing on her gorgeous outdoor dining pavilion. She can seat 16-20 people in this amazing space!
I’m loving the understated patriotic decor on this pew bench. This look can be enjoyed all summer long. MaryJo from Masterpieces of my Life and I think the same way…she used a red white and blue bag of rice in her decor, while I used a vintage red, white and blue box of chalk in my Patriotic Tiered Tray!
The most clicked link of the week is from Rita of Panoply. She shared a year’s worth of vintage finds that went into her antique booth. I loved seeing all of this old barware…it’s very Mad Men! Check out the post to see the rest!

I am glad for your family to be getting a bit of normalcy back. Thank you very much for hosting, and the features are wonderful.
How awesome that your daughter went back to school! We are so used to being alone since the pandemic hit, that we are all getting excited for the simple things we took for granted a year ago! Thanks for hosting!! I’m linking up my DIY Patriotic Picket Fence Bunting # 58. Have fun thrifting with your friend and have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!
So very cool that is finishes the year in-person. Happy for her. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.
It’s wonderful that your daughter is going back to in person school!
Woohoo for going out!!! Thanks for hosting, Rebecca! I hope your shopping date is filled with great finds!!
Rebecca, thank you to your readers for clicking through on my vintage finds post! And now that your daughter is going back to in-person instruction, go out there and get some of those fun finds. They’re waiting for you! Thanks for the party!
Thanks so much for hosting Rebecca. Really appreciate the feature! I am so happy for your daughter! I’m sure she is thrilled. Also happy for you! It is so nice to be with friends again and just doing something “normal.” Thanks again and have a great week.
I’m so happy for you and your daughter! Today, I was able to grocery shop without a mask on — it was great seeing all those smiling faces and feeling safe at the same time. We just returned from Philly where we saw lots of family and friends, and hugged! Hoping more people get their vaccines ASAP!
What an honor to have my Dill Shrimp Salad Sandwiches featured this week – I hope you enjoy them.
