Tuesday Turn About #23: Harvest Time

Please support this site by sharing!

Welcome to Tuesday Turn About #23! In about a month, we’ll all be getting creative with turkey leftovers and thinking ahead to New Year’s diets! (Am I right?) For now, let’s relish this harvest time…

Link Party Hostesses & Some News

Each week, I’ve co-hosted this party with Julie from My Wee Abode and Michelle from Thistle Key Lane. (Be sure to visit each of their blogs and check out the different posts they selected as well!)

This week, I have some important news to share with you. After much deliberation, I’ve decided to take a break from the Tuesday Turn About link party.

As Julie and Michelle can tell you, I’ve struggled with this decision because I LOVE this community, and I’m so glad I made some new friends here.

It’s simply a matter of trying to find a better balance between my business and my home life. (Weekends are more precious now that my boys are in Kindergarten.)

Julie and Michelle will continue to run this party with each choosing four features each week. Rest assured, I’ll still be out there supporting all of you on Facebook, Instagram, etc.!

I want to thank Julie and Michelle for being such gracious and supportive friends. We’ll continue to be blogging “besties” for many years to come! Thank YOU also for spending some of your time with me.

Now, let’s get on to the party…

Yellow and Gray Tablescape

Lori from Dining Delight is all ready for Thanksgiving with this vibrant yellow and gray harvest tablescape. The colors and textures are so attractive and soothing.

I love getting inspired by unique color schemes for Thanksgiving, and Lori explains in her post how she was inspired to create this tablescape.

Unique Autumn Vignettes

If you need some smaller arrangements for your Thanksgiving decor, Rachelle from My Hubbard Home has just the thing. Her unique autumn vignettes have some very useful tips on achieving a “rustic” look.

I had never heard of Rachelle’s hack for getting cans to turn rusty in a flash!

Homemade Apple Butter

I remember trying apple butter as a kid for the first time. It changed my small world! Carol from Comfort Spring has a great recipe for slow cooker apple butter that would make the perfect harvest time gift.

I could imagine serving some of this on Thanksgiving morning!

Don’t forget to stop by My Wee Abode and Thistle Key Lane to see their weekly features!

  • We ask that you please not link up shops, advertising, round-ups, other link parties, or any posts promoting sales.
  • DO NOT PIN FROM IMAGES ON THIS PAGE. (It just won’t work right on Pinterest.) However, you are encouraged to visit the original post/source and pin from there. That works perfectly!

  1. Crissy, sorry to see you leave the party but completely understand your reasons – family comes first! I’ll continue to pop over to see what new ideas you’ve created. xo

    1. Marie, thanks so much for your support and understanding. I’m really sad about leaving, but I look forward to visiting all the great people I’ve met along the way, like you. I always enjoy your DIYs and painting projects! Big hugs, Crissy

  2. Crissy, I hate to see you go because this is such a great party. I know we’ll be collaborating on blog hops so I know I will still see you. I know you will enjoy having extra time with family. It’s never enough and it goes by so quickly. Hugs, Carol

    1. Thank you, Carol. Yes, I definitely still plan to collaborate as much as possible! You’re right, the boys are growing quickly. My days of them wanting to sit on mommy’s lap are numbered, so I’m milking it as much as I can. Ha! I appreciate your kind words, my friend.

  3. Crissy I’ll miss your delightful sweet personality here at Tuesday Turn About! It’s been so nice meeting you. But I’ll still catch up with you on your blog, and see what fun you’ll get up to next! 🙂 Thanks for hosting all this time, and best wishes! 💗

    1. Barbara, you are one of the kindest people I’ve met on here. Thanks for always joining us and supporting us! I definitely will still plan on stopping by to visit everyone. I wish you the best as you continue your gorgeous work.

    1. Sandra, thanks for the sweet words. It’s been a pleasure, and it’s so hard to leave. I’ll be swinging by to visit my fellow bloggers and support you. Let me know if there’s ever anything you need. Thanks! Crissy

    1. Thanks, Paula. I appreciate the kind words. I wish I had some more hours in the week (that nobody else knew about). I’m realizing time is passing so quickly, and I’m trying to cherish this time more. Thanks for understanding.

  4. You chose some beautiful features for your last party… We will miss you so, but we are so glad to continue our blogging bestie relationships outside of TTA! BIG HUGS, girlfriend!

    1. Oh, Julie. I was so sad to actually type that post. I would say I’ll miss you too, but I’ll still be chatting with you just about every day. It’s not goodbye! Big hugs back to you, dear friend!
