Sunny Simple Sunday

Hello and happy weekend! I am one happy woman as between my husband and I, the internet and some dirty work, we managed to repair our central air conditioner. I am so excited. I will share this week what we realized was wrong in case anyone else has the same problem.Okay, onto some highlights from the last Sunny Simple Sundays.

Oh my, you have to see the Cozy Old Farmhouses No Sew Burlap Curtains. I cannot sew so these really appealed to me and the have such down home charm.

I was so drawn to the color at Frugal Ain't Cheap when she shared Kitchen Decor on a Budget. I am always on a budget and this kitchen is so fun.

My heart be still. I have to make these once the weather cools down. Baked Banana Doughnuts by Treat and Trick.

And the most viewed entry was Country Girl at Home on The Simple Life. Now this was the most viewed post on any of the parties I have hosted so that is saying something. We are all yearning for a simpler way of life and find the Amish ways intriguing. I know I do. 
Great post. You will enjoy her take.

So onto the party. Please link up what you have been up to this week. Have a wonderful weekend.

Your blog looks lovely, Elaine! :)

Like you, I don't sew, so I'm checking out the burlap curtains. I was sick last week and didn't get to do much visiting of blogs. I love the look of those.

Wow! The Amish simple lifestyle really is intriguing to many it seems. Guess that is an indicator that we do need to slow down and enjoy life!

I linked up again! I enjoy your linky party!

Have a great weekend! :)

Hugs,
Tammy

Hi Elaine, it has been so long since I have actually had time to sit down and play in blogland, I had no idea you were hosting a party. I will keep this in mind when I am back more regularly and come by and play.
