SugarHouseintheHudsonValley.jpg Hello sweet friends! We are still quite busy in the sugar house - the sap is a'runnin'! Just dropping in for a quick sharing of what I have found of interest around the internet this week. First of all, I am so crazy excited! Did you know that Mumford & Sons is coming out with a new album May 4th! I know what I will be doing that day…listening on repeat. I know I am not alone in my love affair with Joanna and Chip Gaines and the show Fixer Upper. This is an interesting perspective from her. If you are a blogger and are planning on attending The Haven Conference, I am super excited to share that I will be speaking on building a blog to a brand. Hope to see you there! I am loving this pretty painted dresser. This recipe pulls together two of my favorite flavors, lemon and raspberry. And it looks so pretty! Speaking of favorite flavors, I love lime and cilantro. This dressing brings it all together and I can’t wait to try it. I am loving this yummy take on baked potatoes. If you are dyeing eggs today, I love this clever idea to keep hands clean! If you have ever wondered about staining and sealing wood countertops, here are some great tips. butchers_block_refinished If I ever decided to learn how to sew, I would want my sewing room to look like this. In fact, our built in desks would easily convert to this. I have shared about my partnership with Cree Bulbs a few times now. This week, a reader shared with me that she just bought some and she was real happy with the purchase. However, she was a little surprised by the price. I get that. It seems strange to spend higher money on a lightbulb. Here is a video that helps explain the difference... Wishing you a great weekend and a very Happy Easter and Passover! Thanks so much for reading! Quickpen-Signature_edited-1
