Mop It Up Mondays #14

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and party with me. It is the highlight of my bloggy week! There were so many creative and delicious things linked up last week. And whoa nelly...over 200 link ups!! I could hardly believe my eyes. Humbled and thankful to all of you.

If you were featured, feel free to grab a button.

My friend, Meegan, over at What Meegan Makes has 7 children and 18 grandchildren...so naturally LOTS of family photos. She's found a beautiful way to display them here in her new gallery wall.

Can you tell I'm way into gallery walls? These two featured are inspiring me to get my "gallery wall" off of my dining table and actually onto the wall. Melissa from Loving this {Crazy} Life created this wonderful wall in her mom's craft room.

Nothing says summer like a delicious Orange Dreamsicle. The Better Baker has shared her recipe for Orange Dreamsicle Cake...all that wonderful taste without a popsicle stick and a sticky chin!

Genius! Mel (of The Crafty Scientist) had Priscilla do a super clever guest post about her magnetic ironing board that attaches to the top of her dryer. This *may* make me set down the wrinkle release spray that's become our normal pressing around here.

Megan, from A Lived in Home, linked up her gorgeous living room. I adore those floor to ceiling panel drapes. And that rug!! Love.

Plumberry Pie's Kim had a Texas-Inspired Hoedown Party for her daughter's seventh birthday! Yeehaw, y'all...this is straight off the ranch!

The Trophy Wife {from Tales of a Trophy Wife} shared her adorable tutorial for a Wiener Dog Skirt (with applique). This is too cute!

This Wire Hanger Chandelier would even make Joan Crawford smile. Vanessa at Nifty Thrifty Things put this together and shows us all how easy it is. I want one over my bathtub!

Two basic ingredients to happiness are M&Ms and brownies....combine them and it's my kind of party. Cindy at Everyday Insanity gave us a wonderful recipe for her Basic Brownie Mix Cookies

Easy and no bake? WooWee! Rebekah and Kandi shared this {surprisingly simple} recipe for a Strawberry Trifle over at Woven Home.

So it's time to get this week's links up and at 'em! 

Would love for you to link up your favorite project, recipe, tip or whatever. The more the merrier: link up as many posts as you like. Let's MOP UP SOME FUN!

Rules for the Par-Tay: 
1. Link Back 
2. Visit Other's Links

    PS would you consider taking the word verification off- this is my 3 attempt to make a comment- I can never read those things right-

    1. Is it awful that I didn't realize it was "on"? I thought I disabled it a while back. I'll go look into that right now! Thanks for the heads up, Mary Ellen!!


  5. Thanks Kristi for featuring my Brownie Mix Cookies, they really are delicious. Looking forward to another great party.

    PS: I'm with Mary Ellen. This new word verification is sooo hard to read.. And Blogger does a pretty good job preventing spam in the first place. Would you consider taking it off? :D
