What We Accomplished # 26 - Half a Year Celebration & Giveaway

Want to be a pin-up girl?  Join the party, and if you are featured, I'll pin your project to my Green Willow Pond Features Board!



It's been 26 weeks...half a year...of What We Accomplished parties!  Woo Hoo!  I have been so blessed by all of your contributions.  They are a treasure trove of ideas, helpful tips, inspiration and recipes.  In the words of Sally Fields, "They like me, they really like me!"

To celebrate this milestone, I am going to giveaway a set of 4 napkin rings like I posted here.


There are several ways to be entered in the drawing.

1. Link up to three projects/accomplishments/recipes.  Each one gets an entry.  It must be something you did yourself, not a feature of someone else's project.

2. Leave me a comment telling me how you are following this blog.

3. Spread the word about the party and giveaway.  For every way that you share it, i.e. facebook, twitter, google +, etc.  leave a comment for an entry.

I'll use random.org to select the winner.  The numbers will start with the linky party, then continue on with the comments in the order they are made.  I will announce the winner at next weeks linky party!


Now on to the party!  

This weeks top ten start with this awesome organized pantry by Ingrid, at Now at Home Mom.  Love the jars and basket!


How cute are these chalk painted flower pots from Redesigned by M? I love the size of these.  


Kadee Willow used a found iron piece as part of a unusual and awesome window treatment.  


Isn't this little dresser sweet?  Mimi, from Vintage Charm by Mimi, used ASCP in Old White and Paris Grey.  I love the soft two-tone colors and the glass knobs.


Jenna, from Rain on a Tin Roof, posted a house tour that will knock your socks off!  You really must pay her a visit as this picture is just one of many.


Julie, from Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss, put together an adorable birthday party, and she did it without spending much by "shopping the house."


This dresser started out very basic, with glossy white paint and no knobs.  Check out what Mary, from Orphans With Makeup, did to it.  Love the color!


 Crates are so handy, not to mention very in vogue right now.  But they can be hard to find, especially in a size you want.  Why not do what Elisha, from Pneumatic Addict, did and make your own.  She has a complete tutorial on her blog!


I must confess, I am a get in and get out of the kitchen kind of gal.  I can cook, and I do it well according to friends and family, but I don't like it...at all.  So when I find an easy recipe like this Pesto Pasta from Ashley's Dandelion Wishes, I sit up and take notice.  I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but it sounds delicious!


Now having confessed that I don't like to cook, I have to add a caveat.  I do like to bake, and since I am trying eat and cook healthier meals, I just knew I had to try these zucchini muffins, from Nici, at Posed Perfection I know zucchini makes baked goods moist and yummy, and it might just be a way to sneak some green stuff down my family's very un-vegetarian throats!


How about you?  What's have you been accomplishing lately?  Please share...inquiring minds want to know!  And don't forget the giveaway :)

Da Simple and Easy Rules


1. Only projects you have made/accomplished pretty please. Items for sale are okay, as long as they are in tutorial form, and linked to your blog post.  No links to shops or Etsy stores, please.  Link up to 3 posts

2. Linking back to the party (text or button) within your post is very much appreciated . You can grab a button from the side bar if you like.

3. By linking up here, you are giving me permission to feature you here, on Facebook, Twitter, Google + and Pinterest.  I'll only use 1-2 pictures from your post and link back to you. Then people will be flocking to your blog to read all about it!!  Spreadin' the love around baby!    

*Note - After your first link-up, as a courtesy, I will email you each week to let you know when the party is up and running. If at any time you wish to be taken off the list, just shoot me an email with unsubscribe in the subject line. I use your email for this purpose only and never share it with anyone else.

  24. Most of you have probably heard that all assignment help kills creativity, limits your language, and makes you a partner in copying. Are you sure you have time to write an assignment after working part-time, taking hours of lessons and extra classes, college, test prep, assignments, papers, and everything else? Students who need time to finish their claim assignments turn to allassignmenthelp. Not all of these services are comparable, in spite of the fact that, so keep that in mind.

  30. The Air France unaccompanied minor age policy is an essential component of the airline's commitment to providing a secure and supportive travel experience for young passengers travelling alone. Typically, Air France considers children between the ages of 4 and 17 as unaccompanied minors. However, it's crucial to note that the specific age range and requirements may vary depending on the flight's destination and other factors. This policy ensures that children within this age group receive the necessary attention and assistance during their journey, including supervision, help with boarding and disembarking, and ensuring they are safely handed over to their designated guardian upon arrival. By establishing this age range, Air France strives to offer both parents and young travelers peace of mind, making the travel experience as comfortable and safe as possible.
