Saturday Sparks Link Party 70

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 70!
One of my favorite things about this party is the wide ranging mix of projects, ideas and ponderings that are shared each week - diversity at its finest! It's this mingling of creativity that provides a fresh perspective and rejuvenates our imagination.    
Now, onto the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 69.
Model Homes Tour at Boogieboard Cottage. Mary had a great time touring three different model homes and shares a gallery of photos she took from her inspiring day.
Preoccupied with Primaries at Poppy View. Poppy blogs from Crete, Greece and shows off her beautiful surroundings. Primary colors are a continuing theme throughout the island and Poppy's home as well.
DIY Spray Painted Glass Bottles at Homemaking Hacks. Dawn shows us that simple spray painted bottles can make a great accessory. The key is to choose colors that compliment the room.
Easy Summer Decorating Using Bottles at Chateau Chic. Continuing with the bottle theme, Mary Alice has lovingly placed vintage bottles throughout her home as part of her summer decor. This is such a simple way to add some 'pretty' to any space.
Patriotic Wrap Dress at USS Crafty. Tonna created this sweet dress for her daughter and shows us how she pieced the skirt and finished it with a sash closure. Love the patriotic fabrics she chose.
A French Bag and a Tag at Vintage with Laces. Julia shares a gorgeous French themed bag and tag she made for her dear friend. As always, her work is just amazing.
Cathedral Window Update at The Locust Blossom. Lady Locust has been steadily working on her Cathedral Window coverlet and updates us on her progress. The batik's and prints she placed within each window are so striking alongside the black. Just beautiful!
Cheese Grater Earring Holders at Homeroad. Susan acquired some vintage cheese graters and repurposed them into these unique earring holders. The patina of the metal works so nicely with the wood mounts.

Sunrise Smoothie Recipe at Some of This and That. There is nothing more refreshing than a cold smoothie on a hot summer day. Jamie shares a simple and healthy recipe for a Sunrise Smoothie that will help kick start your day.
Lobster Avocado Sandwich with Garlic at Spaceships and Laser Beams. Stephanie shows us how to enjoy lobster without breaking the bank with these scrumptious sandwiches.

Kale & Garlic Scape Pesto at Upstate Ramblings. Anne found a way to sneak some kale into her kids diet with this unique Pesto recipe that she says is garlicky and delicious.
Strawberry Yogurt Creamy Popsicles at ABC Creative Learning. If you have kids, you know that popsicles are a necessity on hot summer days. Victoria has you covered with this wholesome homemade version.

  1. I don't know if it's me or what, but I can enter my links, but can't see any of the others that are linked up :/

    Thanks for the party and I'll come back and check to see if I can see them later. Weird.

    Have a great day!

  2. The links aren't showing and I cannot find where to click to get to them. I can add a link, but not see the others. It just says x entries so far. Will they show after a certain number are added?
