Making Monday [#36]

Welcome to another fabulous Making Monday party!

Birds are chirping.  Flowers are in bloom.  Grass is growing ~ we’ve already mowed twice, which means it’s going to be a long mowing season!  But spring is here and I love it.

I have plans this spring to paint two of our exterior doors and one wooden screen door, and refinish our kitchen table top.
We’ll see what I actually accomplish!
What projects are you planning?

This is a party where you can find fun new creative ideas and tasty recipes
shared by amazingly talented people.
Every Monday bloggers stop by to link up their posts and share with all you party goers.
By joining in {both bloggers and non-bloggers} you will
discover new blogs,
be inspired to make something new,
try a yummy new recipe,
and most importantly make new friends!

This party is hosted by Gracie and me, and your projects will be shared on both of our blogs.
We love that you’re here and we love featuring you on our social media
so be sure to follow us so you can see if your post gets shared!

We also pin to our Making Monday Pinterest board and we’d love to have you follow along!
This is a place you can find projects from all the previous parties, too, so it is like a party every day!

This is what your hostesses have been up to:

Grits.  It’s what’s for breakfast.
And dinner, and any other time you get the craving.
I’m sharing my Grits recipe and a little bit of grit history.
If you are a true southerner you will love this post, and if you aren’t a southerner
you should read this post to understand the goodness you are missing out on.  🙂

Finally, Gracie’s yard is getting ready for Spring!
Lots of natural beautiful color, lovely plants, and SPRING PARTIES!
Yep, she wrote up a little bit about how she gets ready for BBQs, parties, get togethers,
and all other functions during the Spring and Summer months.


Here are the features from last week’s party chosen by Gracie ~

This week we have great spring project ideas!
With spring comes a need to clean, redecorate, get outside, and just soak up life!
So here are some awesome ideas that were shared last week.

#1.  Beautiful Water Color Maps are apparently simple to make and totally add
a little oomph to that spring party invite.  Water Color Maps by Let’s Drink Coffee, Darling.

#2.  Maybe you don’t have a green thumb so you just spray paint it.
DIY Faux Potted Grass by Satisfaction Through Christ can help with that!

#3.  And how about you stop stealing your kids coloring books and
use these beautiful Adult coloring Pages from Darlene Nemeth?

#4.  Finally, another wreath!
{Gracie thinks she’s obessed with Spring Wreaths.)
This Fabric Strip Spring Wreath is precious! Check out Robyns View for more.

If you’re one of our features PLEASE grab a button and share it on your blog!
A Bright and Beautiful Life
And don’t forget if you didn’t make it as a feature this week to check out the Pin board and to keep linking up, next week could be you!
