Celebrate Your Story! #167

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone's week is off to a great start!  Last week was a crazy week for me...work, blog writing, working on my KonMari organization, a little bit of illness and a huge craft project.
My craft projects are usually hit or miss, but I'm glad to have another one in the win column.  I revamped a basket for our back "stoop".  If you have a minute check it out here, I would love to know your thoughts!

Before I move on to new business, I need to take care of some old business.  Sounds like a board meeting or something doesn't it? :-)  I want to congratulate Rita at Panoply.  She is the winner of the Marie Kondo book I was giving away last week.  Congratulations Rita, the book is in the mail! I hope you enjoy it!

Now, on to the new business.  My favorite pick...this wonderful Linguine recipe from The Red Painted Cottage.
I cannot wait to try this recipe!  You guys know I'm Italian, right?! :-)

Chloe's favorite belonged to Two Trails One Road.
Her Valentine's Teatime ideas will definitely give you some inspiration for Valentine's Day!

Kari chose this fabulous Pink Champagne Cake from Loving the Home Life.
O.M.G.  I cannot wait to try this recipe!

Our most clicked on link was this beautiful Purple Passion tablescape from Panoply.
Her table settings are always exquisite!
