Saturday Sparks Link Party 122

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 122 and Happy Fourth of July!

Today is the day we celebrate our independence as a nation and reflect on the sacrifices of those that have given so much.  May you enjoy your day with family and friends and the freedoms that we have all been blessed with.

 "Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom."
~ Albert Einstein
 Now, lets get this weeks party started.

First up, the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 121.

A Day By The Sea at While I Linger. Jolena and her husband had a lovely day strolling through a sea side village in Rhode Island.

What Is The Secret To Taking Those Glamour Shots at A Stroll Thru Life. Marty studied several eye catching home decor photos and shows us how they all shared a common theme.

Home Office at Stylish Revamp. Kathy and her husband transformed an unused formal living room into a home office. This space is now Kathy's favorite room and I certainly understand why - it's beautiful!

Blackberry Limeade at Upstate Ramblings. Annie shared a fruit filled recipe for a 'Blackberry Limeade' that would be perfect at any summer party.

Spinach Manicotti at Swanky Recipes. Jessica is sharing a classic comfort food that is great any time of year.

Strawberry Brownie Skewers at One Little Project. Debbie is sharing a quick and easy idea for a fun summer dessert.


Amazingly Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies at To Simply Inspire. Sherri has created a delicious cookie recipe that happens to be good for you. Sounds like a win, win to me!
