Tuesday Turn About #85 February Feelings
Tuesday Turn About February Feelings is live… and there’s a reason why it’s about ‘all the feels’.
TUESDAY TURN ABOUT #85 February Feelings
Last week, I had some tech problems, but there was still some Valentine Love features!
Happy February everyone! Everyone is saying it, so I will, too… Can you believe it’s already February?
How has your week started?
Me? My day-job was conducted from home yesterday because I seriously over-did it on Sunday, starting my next project on my Modern Coastal Bathroom makeover.
Yep… I said ‘starting’. I didn’t even put a dent in it, but my body says something different! LOL!
There’s a specific reason I’m ‘sub-titling’ this week’s TTA as “February Feelings”, and you’ll see it at the first feature here at My Wee Abode.
But, last week was not lacking in “love”ly posts and Valetine’s tips and tricks! So, this week will feature some of those that were linked up. And remember…
But first, some tips…
Weekly Household Tip
If you are a coffee drinker, do you use disposable pods, reusable pods, or a traditional drip coffee maker?
For me, reusable pods are my go-to. They make a quick, single cup of coffee and save money and waste!
And, I love using Seattle’s Best dark roast coffee (any of them). SB is affordable and the coffee has a deep, rich taste!
Weekly Blogging Tip
There are many opinions on how many pins you should be pinning each day on Pinterest, as well as opinions on the ratio of your pins versus others.
I have found that an 80/20 ratio works best for me. So, if I pin 10 of my own pins each day, than that means 2 pins from other blogs get pinned for that day, as well.
Again, test and see what works best for you. But keep in mind, you want Pinterest users clicking over to YOUR blog, so pinning your content the most seems logical (at least to me)!
Share what your strategy is in the comments, so we can all learn from each other!

This Week’s Features:
All the Feels
By the time I got to the middle of this post, I had tears streaming down my face. Denise from My Home of All Seasons shares a Valentine vignette that is full of all the feels… memories from now and from the past! You won’t want to miss it!
Pretty and Yummy Feels
Aren’t these lovely? These Valentine hot cocoa bombs give your eyes and tummy all the feels! Check out how Carrie from Curly Crafty Mom makes these! Perfect for your Valentine, whether it’s a spouse, child, or sweet friend!
Warm and Fuzzy Feels
This month’s Pinterest Challenge was all about creating a door wreath for Valentine’s Day. Seventeen bloggers joined in, and one of my faves was from Angie at Postcards from the Ridge. Take a look at how to make this fuzzy wreath with these easy-to-make fabric roses!
Check out our Tuesday Turn About Link Party Pinterest board! All NINE featured posts are pinned to this board each week!
Now It’s Your Turn! Link Away!
Let’s start sharing! Because this is a party, we encourage all who link up to visit several other bloggers who have linked as well – comments and pins are a great way to spread the love!
Before you get started, take a look at our guidelines:
- This party is for home decor and home-related posts only (recipes, organizing, DIY, crafts, 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!
- By linking to the party, you give us permission to share your projects on our blogs and social media. We will always give proper credit with a no-pin image.
Be sure to link up any of your Valentine recipes this week! I’m hoping to feature all ‘love’ly recipes next week!

Beautiful features – and thanks for the Pinterest tips. Pinterest has been so frustrating lately! Thanks for hosting and enjoy your week!
Just keep to it with Pinterest, Shelley. We just do our best, and then rest in Him! 😉
Julie, thank you for sharing the love. I’ve saved Angie’s DIY for her lovely wreath. Happy February!
It’s gorgeous, isn’t it? Off to see your Valentine’s tablescape from today’s hop!
Thanks so much for hosting Julie and for including my Valentine Vignette in your features! It makes me so happy to share their story. They were the very meaning of “Unconditional Love” in my world.
I’m anxious to see what you do next with your coastal bathroom makeover but take your time! I know when I overdo it on a project… I pay the price for days! Have a great week!
Thanks Denise… and I was so happy to be able to share your post! Was wondering, do you have a Facebook account? I don’t see your social media buttons on your site, so I wasn’t sure.
I do but haven’t done anything with it! I really struggle with my social media! The buttons come up on blog posts bur not on any of the main pages. I really do have my work cut out for me!
Okay… I just looked and I don’t see them on your posts either. What is your FB account?
Julie!!! I did it! They are not quite where I want them but they are there! Thanks for the push! You have no idea how much I appreciate it. Have a wonderful weekend!
Woot, you go, girl!
Oh and I too love your blogging tips! I’ve saved them all in a folder on my laptop. I use them all the time so THANK YOU!
Well, that’s very cool! Thanks for sharing that with me, Denise! Glad to help!
J, I like Pinterest and get a lot of traffic from them, but could always use more 😉
I’ve heard the Pinterest 80/20 rule, but I have more questions.
Are you repining old pictures from earlier posts, and do you add titles to all of them?
I’m also concerned about pining a pic to the same board, which I heard could be a big no, no.
Hey, Rachelle… these are great questions. Again, lots of different opinions, but this is what I’m doing. I AM re-pinning old pins and photos from older posts, but I’m also making new pins for them. So with title, some without. I’ve been testing this recently, and Pinterest seems to be liking the photos with no banners just as much as with. I would wait about 4-6 months before pinning the same pin/photo to the same board. but, it’s okay to pin a different pin/photo with the same URL to the same board, even the next day. 🙂 However, I like to even spread that out, to be ‘safe’. 😉 Hope that helps! You are welcome to email me anytime, too!
I’ll chime in on ‘Happy February’! I think we could all use a little February salute — especially this year and with this week’s weather extremes!
Do you have snow??? We have finally gotten some rain, and we are so thankful! Have a blessed week, Sandra!
These Valentine’s Day inspired features are so much fun, Julie! Thanks so much for hosting. I hope your week is a happy one. Hugs, CoCo
Thanks, CoCo! You have a blessed week, too!
Thanks so much for hosting each week!! I know how much work and time it takes to host and then to visit each post. It truly is appreciated!!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!
Thank YOU, Debbie! We always are blessed to have you with us!
I fell in love with Angie’s yarn and fabric heart wreath. Thanks so much for hositng, Julie. rest up and go slow with that bathroom makeover!
Will do, Debra… yes, great minds with Angie’s wreath!
This is what I featured 1-25 to 1-29-2021. On Tuesday was Green Chile Mac and Cheese. Wednesday was Baked Truffle Mac and Cheese. Thursday was Chili Mac and Cheese Hot Dog Casserole. Friday was Shrimp and Crab Mac and Cheese. Enjoy!
Crab mac and cheese sounds amazing!
I use a traditional drip coffee maker even though I’m the only coffee drinker in my home. I just don’t want two coffee makers because I need one that makes a larger pot for guests. As for Pinterest, I don’t have rules. I pin my own stuff and whatever I like of other blogs. Thanks for the party.
I get that two coffee maker thing, Amy. I can’t have a huge amount of people in MWA, so a single cup maker works here. Thanks for joining us this week!
I’ve been using the single serve “tea bag” type coffee bags, but I’ve really been wanting to get a keurig type maker. I didn’t even know there are reusable pods, so now I really want one! I love the features. Hope you feel better soon!
Yes… almost all can use a reusable pod… but Marie says her new one doesn’t… so bizarre!
Thanks for the heads up– I will check before I buy one!
Denise’s beautiful post had me bawling too, so well written. I adopted the same pin strategy about six weeks ago and what a difference it made! As for coffee, I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve been using disposable pods and wish my favorite coffee brand would make compostable pods. Our new Keurig machine doesn’t have a reusable pod. Have a great week Julie!
What?! A Kuerig that doesn’t take reusable pods? What madness is this? Wonder if there is one on the horizon? (Wow, I’m full of questions!) I do hop lots of people get to read Denise’s lovely post!
Thanks for hosting, Julie!
So happy to see you here, Cecilia!
Love that you share blogging tips each week. Thanks for hosting! When you share your own pins, do you save to the same board each time? Or do you pin to new boards, group boards?
I’m glad you enjoy the tips, Marie. I rotate my pins and save them to different boards. I will save the same pin to a different board each day for about 7 days. I don’t use too many group boards.
Good to hear what you and others are doing with Pinterest. I use Tailwind, which I LOVE! I schedule 21 pins a day, including re-pins from my Communities. Then I just pin from people’s pages as I go along. When I actually follow my strategy, it seems to do pretty well! 😉 Thanks for hosting, as always! Hope you have a lovely week1
Thanks for sharing your strategy, Barbara! I’m glad it’s doing well for you! I may do a little more scheduling this week!
Thanks so much for hosting!
Always happy to see you here, Amber!
Thank you for hosting and especially for featuring my wreath! Thank you also for the pinterest tip. I definitely need to be more intentional with my pins!
You’re so welcome, Angie… love those fabric roses! 😉
