It’s Mother’s Day and if you are a mom, a mom~to~be, have a mom or a grandmother, favorite aunt, or know someone who acts as a mom, we at Happiness is Homemade Link party 270 hope that you are having a marvelous day.

This week I shared the mother’s day cards I made for my grandkids to give to their moms. You might like to PIN it for next year.

Spring has settled in and we love the blooming flowers everywhere (not the pollen and allergies!). I’m so excited to be hostess for the rest of the month of May. I always think of May flowers and showers, the May pole, and the lusty month of May (from Camelot).

“It’s May, it’s May, that gorgeous holiday.
That lovely month when everyone goes blissfully astray
Tra la, it’s here, that shocking time of year
When tons of wicked little thoughts merrily appear.”

You all made it so hard to pick a few featured posts. The content last week was over the top. But choose, I did, so please enjoy, PIN, comment and share. And definitely, link up for next week.

I love eating outdoors and this beautiful blue and white tablescape in the garden from Judith at Botanic Bleu has May written all over it.

Summer is for cocktails by the pool or patio and this Strawberry Limoncello Spritzer from Erin at DelightfulEMade looks so refreshing and summery.

I can’t resist a good DIY project ~ especially one that is so easy, but packs a wallop of usefulness. Ashley at Cherish Bliss turns plain ole terra cotta pots into something special.

Taking one thing and using it as another is always a favorite project for me. What a creative idea decorating a hat box as a card collector for a special event: wedding reception, birthday party, graduation. Thanks to Tee at Tee Diddly Dee for this suggestion.

To be honest, what attracted me to this project at first was the book by Peter Mayle. I love his stories of living in Provence. But then the actual DIY grabbed me. I’m always losing paper bookmarks, and I also have random pieces of ribbon and buttons so I loved learning a way to use them from Ashley at Yarn Scissors Silk.
