Hey friends! It’s time for my Mitten Moments. I’m excited to be sharing a glimpse into the highlights and happenings of my week.
Happy 4th of July weekend! I hope you are lucky enough to have a long holiday weekend. Baseball, burgers and my family’s favorite, blueberry buckle, will be on the menu here! If you’re a blueberry fan, check out my post How to Make the Best Blueberry Buckle.
What’s on your 4th of July menu?
My Personal Mitten Moments
- I learned something new this week. Have you ever heard of a “tomato girl summer”? Apparently, it is all the rage on TikTok. It’s about embracing the vibes of a European summer. It’s in large, one part fashion and wearing that bright red color of a tomato, however, it also spills over into entertaining, in your home. Make sure you stay tuned for my detailed post on tomato girl summer, next week!
- Are you a fan of reading? I just picked up the new Elin Hilderbrand’s new book, The Five-Star Weekend. I’ve read some of her other books and I am definitely a fan. This one, so far so good!
- I love hot tea. Yes, even in the summer. I typically use coffee mugs to drink my tea, and this week, I found the cutest mug. On the inside is the scripture “Consider how the wildflowers grow.” Luke 12:27. It’s the cutest and a little bit of happy to start the day.
- I’m a lucky girl and have the this week off from my day job! Ask me if I’m a little excited?

It was Pinterest Challenge week, on the blog. A Pinterest Challenge is where some blogging friends and I take an inspirational photo and create our own version of it. Our inspiration was to use any type of flag in our home decor.
Ticking fabric is some of my favorite to work with and I have a ton of it from making my cottage blankets. Using that, some blue and white star fabric, and a wire heart, I shared how to make An Easy Patriotic Rag Wreath.

If you have a garden and grow cucumbers you are going to love this next share! My good friend Wendy from WM Design House shared Mrs. Wages Dill Pickle Recipe: How To Make Quick Pickles. I’m definitely going to try this when our cucumbers come in from the family garden!
