Tuesday Turn About #8: Summer Kitchens and Entertaining

Please support this site by sharing!

I’m so happy to have you here at Tuesday Turn About #8! I am not kidding when I say it was REALLY hard to choose just three features this week. So many great ideas! Though I don’t always try to choose a theme, it so happens that all of my features this week have to do with summer kitchens and entertaining. Enjoy!

We’re hitting the midpoint of summer here. My twin boys just started a little day camp at their old pre-school, and I’m gearing up to attend my second Haven Conference for bloggers.

I can’t even express how excited I am to join my fellow bloggers at this conference! Last year, I walked away with a long list of to-do items for my blog, and, most importantly, I made some lasting friendships along the way. I’ll be sure to share some of the highlights on the blog next week.


Each week, I co-host this party with two of my favorite bloggers, 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.

Also, I encourage you to follow us on social media to stay in the know!

Paula from Virginia Sweet Pea has an amazing transformation of a sewing table turned outdoor bar. I love the vibrant color she chose! It adds such a fun flair to a patio party. Click over to see what this cabinet looked like before…

Now It’s Your Turn! Link Away!

Because this is a party, we encourage all who link up to visit several other bloggers who have linked as well – comments and pins are a great way to spread the love!

Party Guidelines:

  • This party is for home decor and home-related posts only (recipes, organizing, DIY, crafts, etc). Feel free to link up to 3 related posts. Please do not link up informational posts that do not relate to the topic.
  • 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!
  • By linking to the party, you give us permission to share your projects on our blogs and in social media. We will always give proper credit with a no-pin image.
