Saturday Sparks Link Party 66

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 66!
June is such a busy month for so many with graduations, dance recitals, sports playoffs and tying up those final loose ends before the lazy days of summer. In spite of the hectic schedule, it is an exciting time of year that brings out a renewed energy and lifts the spirit - much like this party.
Now, onto the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 65.
The Living Bottle Tree at Artsy Vava. Mothers Day found Virginia and her son creating a Bottle Tree. This is such a unique idea. I love how the sunlight shines through the different colors of glass and casts a beautiful glow.
Upcycled Water Sensory Bin at Find Daily Joy. Warm weather found Emma making a Water Sensory Bin for her little guy Henry to play and learn with. I envision this getting lots of use.
Decorating with Vintage Books at Chateau Chic. Mary Alice is a kindred spirit, as she too has a love for old books. In this post,  she shows us the different ways she displays them in her home.
Headboard Bench at Penny's Vintage Home. Penny's husband has been busy creating again. This pretty bench is made from differing bed parts - a true trash to treasure transformation.
Baked Feta with Tomatoes, Olives and Fresh Herbs at Simply Fresh Dinners. Robyn finds herself using tomatoes in lots of her dishes lately and worked them into this flavorful Mediterranean inspired recipe that she says makes a great appetizer paired with pita chips or other crackers.
Mozzarella & Pepperoni Stuffed Chicken at Simply Gloria. Gloria shares a quick and easy recipe for a chicken dish with a twist that she says adds a bit of pizzaz to ordinary chicken.
Asian Chicken Salad Wraps at Upstate Ramblings. Anne has a decided to spend less time cooking and have more fun time with the family this summer. This quick and easy recipe works perfectly into her plan.
 Old-fashioned Rhubarb Cake at Hello Little Home. Ginnie visited with her sister and they shared some  time cooking together including this recipe for Rhubarb Cake. If you have never tried rhubarb, you are in for a treat. It has a delicious, tangy taste unlike anything else.
And finally, a recap of my share from the party - Taking Notice. I take a moment to reflect on the beauty of our surroundings and the gifts from nature that we have all been blessed with.
