The Dish... Summer rewind

PhotobucketToday I am participating in Amanda's Dishing It! party.  Where we get to share and get to know other bloggers a bit better. Here is the topic: Summer in review and here are the questions for this month.
~Best activity you participated in this summer.
The chance to spend 2 different weeks at our daughter and Son-in-laws' home taking care of our sweet grand son. Getting together with girlfriends to just laugh and swim has been a blast too.
~Did your family go on any trips this summer?
We opted not to vacation this summer for a myriad of reasons so it has been a very laid back uneventful summer. Which is not a bad thing just different for us~Best new recipe you tried.
Since I love to cook I have many favorites. A new dessert I found here  for  Dulche de Leche - Toffee Tartlets is amazing and so easy. I made them for Bunco the other night and they were the hit of the evening
~Coolest crafty thing you made or home decor thing you tried. I am so happy with how my dresser project  turned out I can't believe it is even the same dresser.
~Best book or magazine issue you read. Chasing Fireflies by Charles Martin. Great story 
~Coolest new (to you) blog you've found. I have found many, but am enjoying  Pam @Diy Fanatic She has a great blog with wonderful ideas and a beautiful home too! Go check her out. Also loving Tanya @ frou frou britches.I have to admit when I first say her blog I did a double take at the britches word... It always throws me. She is delightful. you need to visit her too
~Favorite bargain or shopping find of the summer. That's easy, it would have to be  this wonderful metal bed found at a yard sale for $40.00. I left some of the pillows off so you can see the great headboard detail.Can you believe only $40.00?
~What's left on your summer to-do list? Would love to get a camping trip in before summer is over with all of our children and I have a few furniture makeover projects in the works. 


  1. Debbie, you precious thing! Thanks so much for mentioning me. So sweet! I think you're delightful too!

    Those toffee tarlets look AMAZING! YUM!

    Love your dresser redo. The pulls you picked are sooo cool! That's the drawer pulls I want in the kitchen. Love them!

    I cannot believe you got that bed for $40. What a fabulous deal!

  2. Debbie,
    What a fun post! The Dulche de Leche tartlets look absolutely fabulous!!! I am going to make that recipe for sure!
    And you have such a treasure in your new bed frame. Great eye! It looks so beautiful all dressed up!
    I am tickled I found you! What a fun visit!

  3. That's great you got to spend time with your grand son! We love camping too-2 more trips for us!

  4. Oh. my. word. That tartlet looks amazing!!! Laughing out loud about Tanya's blog title--I did the same thing. ;)

    Thanks so much for linking up with me! Hope you are having fun visiting around. :) Don't forget to swing by and leave me a comment too. ;)

  5. Amazing job on the dresser and amazing deal on the bed!! I love them both!

    I'm sure you had a great time with your grandson. What a blast! I hope you make your camping trips before summer is over. So nice to "meet you."

  6. Keeping your grandson this summer must have been a special time for you. I hope you do get your camping trip in before summer ends.

    Your new bed is fabulous and such a bargain!

  7. Those tart look great! You must fit in that camping trip! I just love camping with my family!

  8. Hey girl--I know you had a great summer with that precious baby in your family!

    I do love your dresser project. I need to get myself in gear and get some spray painting done around here. It's been so hot that I haven't done much lately!

    Hope you're doing great!

  9. Oh the tarts look so good Debbie! Yummy! :)
