Tuesday Turn About #247 Everything Garden

Tuesday Turn About #247 Everything Garden: The party is in full swing, and we are featuring all things garden, from planting to recipes and everything in between!


At last week’s party, we celebrated lots of “newness”.

Last week, our party landed on April Fool’s Day, and I forgot to say, “Happy April”.

So, I’ll say it today!

HAPPY APRIL! And, welcome to the party!

There’s LOTS to share today, including TWELVE features that are all about the garden!

Looking for tips on growing herbs, fun garden-themed crafts for the kiddos, a DIY wreath using items from your garden, or some delicious recipes? You’re in luck! We’ve got everything you need, and then some! 🌼 Let’s make your garden grow!

Wee Finds is making its debut, bringing some of my fave discoveries to you. And that’s not all – we’ve also got a crucial tip for all you bloggers out there, plus I’ll be spilling some BIG NEWS!

Are you ready for some juicy details?

Abode Adventures

Let’s start off with the BIG NEWS!

If you’ve been at the party the last couple weeks, you already know that My Wee Abode 3.0 is on the horizon. Staying here in MWA 2.0 isn’t practical for me, neither is it economical! 😉

With rental home prices on the rise across the country, you can imagine what the prices are like here in So Cal!

Since moving out of the area is not an option, I needed to think outside the box. So, I’m moving INTO a box!

Just kidding! Well, sort of.

It has just been confirmed this past weekend that I will be starting a new ‘tiny home’ life! My Wee Abode 3.0 will be a trailer!

NO! This is NOT my new home! Scared ya, didn’t I?

We’re not talking traveling the world… It’s all about staying in one place and making a lovely home in a small trailer.

My Wee Abode will be, more than ever, a site that is about “Big Inspiration for Small Home Living”. There will be all kinds of tips, tricks, ideas, and solutions for living in a tiny trailer home, that will translate into any size home! Think decluttering, organizing, storage, practical decor, downsizing and more!

THIS is more the look I will be going for! Much better, right?

This is super exciting for me, and I hope it will be for you, too!

By the way, in other news, I’ve been “down” with a chest cold since Friday, thus Part 2 of our sister-trip to Oahu was put on the back-burner… But, it’s coming this week! I promise!

Wee Finds

As I’m starting to declutter and purge in preparation for the move, I’m thinking a lot about the kitchen!

One thing I’ll be taking with me are these flip top mason jars. These are AMAZING for storing berries, tomatoes, and any other kinds of small produce. Just bring them home from the grocery store and pop them into the jars. And DON’T wash them until you want to use them. Try it, you’ll be amazed how long your berries, etc., stay fresh! Seriously, the BEST hack I’ve ever discovered!

These pull-out drawers will be going with me, too! I’ll need them to get to the ‘back’ of a tiny pantry!

This magnetic knife holder will part of my new tiny kitchen, as well! It can be used on the side of a refrigerator OR mounted on a wall! I love mine!

Weekly Blogging Tip

Today’s blogging tip is simple, but SUPER important. Be sure that you include AT LEAST one pinnable image on your blog post.

Many times, when I go to pin a featured post to the Tuesday Turn About pin board, I’m unable to do this because there is no pin icon on the photos. And think of all the traffic you might be missing with NOT having your pins on Pinterest!

There is another way to make images pinnable, as well. I’ll share that next week!

Though not a requirement at all, I would be SO blessed if you would subscribe and/or follow me either here on the blog, Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram. Thanks!

Before you get started, take a look at our guidelines:

  • This party is for home decor, home-related posts, and family-related posts only (recipes, organizing, DIY, crafts, travel, education, etc.). Link up to 3 related posts. Please do not link up informational posts that do not relate to the topic.
  • If you would please not link up shops, advertising, round-ups, other link parties, or any posts promoting sales, we would appreciate it.
  • DO NOT PIN FROM IMAGES ON THIS PAGE (it just won’t work right on Pinterest). However, please visit the original post/source and pin from there. That works perfectly!
  • Please make sure that your images are in a jpeg or png format. If we can’t save your image, we may not be able to feature you. So sad!

Lots to do and see this party, right? I had such fun, what about you? Can’t wait until next week!

  1. Julie, congratulations on deciding on a [stationary] mobile home! Best wishes for settling in. Do consider requesting your Dr calling in an order for a swab test (same as Covid, only it covers 19 different nasal tests). That’s how I found out I had RSV nearly 3 weeks ago (and while I’m well, the cough lingers….).

  10. Wow, a tiny home! I know you’ll have the best ideas and tips. Hoping one day I can have barely enough stuff to fit into a tiny home. I’m in purge mode these days and it feels so good. Sounds like you have a lot to do and need to be in tip-top shape so I hope you feel your best super soon! Did I miss where it was going to sit? Will you be close to DeeDee? Thanks for the party friend.

  11. Thank you very much for including me this week’s wonderful features! Excited for your new adventure in moving your wee abode 💜
