Celebrate Your Story! #181

I cannot believe how quickly time is just whizzing by!  We are coming up on Memorial Day and before you know it, it will be the 4th of July and then Christmas!  I'm so glad I've been picking up Christmas presents when I see sales.  I've cleared out space in one of our closets for gifts.

Now, on to the good stuff.  We have had so much rain here in Texas that when I see sunny photos, I want to move where the sun is.  Busy Lifestyle Gal shared her Farmhouse Flower Box Planter.
This is so pretty.  I love the look of the wood with the burlap.  The hubster and I have some wood leftovers from our board and batten projects...I may have something new for him to work on. :-)

Inspirational wall art is all the rage right now.  Chas Crazy Creations shared how she created a Inspirational Wall Art on the cheap...
...this is just adorable and so easy to make!  I am all about some inexpensive home decor!

And, speaking of homemade home decor, Lora Bloomquist created this DIY Button Topiary!  What a great idea for all those leftover buttons...
...you can find jars of them just about anywhere!  I just love it!

The most clicked-on link from last week was from Life of 2 Snowbirds.  They shared wonderful tips from their First RV Road Trip.
So much information...I encourage you to check it out if you are planning on hitting the road in an RV!

  4. Thank you Benita, and I agree, time is really flying, I wish it would slow down now that it's summer! Sorry about all the rain and storms you've been having, stay safe! I hope it clears up and you can have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

    1. Jenna, you are so right! I can't believe that June is right around the corner! It seems we just got to May! Thank you so much...the weather here has been very volatile this spring. We've had Alabama weather. :-) We are hoping this stuff pushes out for a nice Memorial Day weekend! I do hope you have a great holiday weekend! Thanks so much! Hugs!

  5. Always love this party and all the inspiration. Time is flying by so quickly. This is my season and I love this time of year so I want it to slow down to enjoy the summer months!!!! I am like you and when I see something that would be a great Christmas gift I get it now. Have a good week.

    1. Kris, these bloggers are so talented! It is so difficult each week to pick a favorite...it takes me forever! LOL I'm trying to get into the habit of picking up gifts so that I can make it a practice to do so every year! I hate waiting until the last minute! Summer in Texas is not my favorite. If I could live in Canada for the summer, then I might like it better! ;-) Love and hugs sweet friend!

  6. Great features. Oh we are in need of rain! It's so dry at my place. AND HOT! Nothing like it will be though. I hope that you have a wonderful week dear friend. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    1. Cindy, I would happily send all of this rain over to you in a heartbeat! We've had such a rainy season this year and the humidity is killing me...LOL Our summer will be roasting...Texas summers always are...LOL I hope you have a great week also! Love and hugs to you!

  7. So many great ideas...so little time...because you are so right: TIME JUST SEEMS TO FLY. I like Christmas shopping all along too but haven't come across any good deals lately. I'd better get on it or I will be dealing with the crowds and I hate that!!!

  8. You are right on.. time is flying!!! Trying to hold on to May. Goodness!
    We had snow Sunday! Planting is not going very well. TONS of rain here too. 3 inches Sunday another 1.5 yesterday and 2 more in the forecast for Thursday.
