Tuesday Turn About #166 Give Me Pumpkins!

Spread the love

The party has started! Tuesday Turn About #166 Give Me Pumpkins! (Can you guess what the features include?!) And be sure to look for my special announcement in this post!


We had some great HOME TIPS at last week’s party!

Well, September is right around the corner… literally! This week’s party will end in September, and we will be welcoming the new month at the next party. Crazy, right?!

Along with the beginning of September comes all things pumpkins, am I right?

Because my niece is a barista at ONE of our local Starbucks, I had my first PSL last week! Woo hoo! Such a treat!

And, of course, the autumn season also screams pumpkins! So this week, I’m featuring FIVE (count-’em, FIVE!) pumpkin features that I can’t wait to share!

Why five features this week? Lynne is taking the week off, as she prepares for her first week back at school and teaching. She’ll rejoin us next week, but in the meantime, Cindy and I get to each feature FIVE bloggers this week! That’s a total of ten, instead of our normal 9. ๐Ÿ™‚

Be sure to hop on over toย My Family Thymeย and Reinvented Delaware to check out SIX additional features from TTA!
If you havenโ€™t been featured at MWA this week, you just may be featured there!

Now, as promised last week, let’s get some tips!

This post may contain affiliate links, at no additional cost to you. For more information, see my complete disclosure HERE.

Weekly Household Tip

Have you ever tried the Lemi Shine products?

My sister “swears” by their products, especially the Lemi Shine Rinse Aid and the Lemi Shine Tile + Shower Cleaner. I’ll be adding these to my next Walmart online order, for sure!

Let me know if you have ever tried them, and what you think!

Weekly Blogging Tip

Today’s tip is often easier said than done… especially for those of us that work outside the home.

Be consistent.

This means, if you blog two times a week, be sure to blog two times a week. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Readers actually look for our newsletters and new posts, and if they know we post on Tuesdays and Saturdays every single week (or whatever two, three or four days you post), they will be waiting for the notification to see what new solutions, DIYs, or printables we have for them!

It’s Not Easy…

This has been a difficult one for me throughout my blogging career for two reasons. One, since my mother’s dementia has declined, I’ve either needed to be an advocate while she lived in a memory care community, or, like now, I’m her primary caregiver. This will not change in the foreseeable future.

The second reason is, I worked outside of the home since My Wee Abode launched in 2018. It’s been like having THREE jobs, people!

Special Announcement…

Did you notice something? I said ‘worked’… past tense!

Yep! Here’s my special (and exciting) announcement!

As of this week, I am now considered a full-time blogger! Woo hoo!

Though I’m STILL taking care of my mom along with the blog, I’m hoping that only having these TWO jobs will afford me the consistency that I know will benefit the blog AND, more importantly, the MWA ‘fam’!

Now, let’s celebrate with this week’s pumpkin features!

Easy and Free Washcloth Pattern

I know this isn’t a pumpkin, but it IS pumpkin orange! So, I thought I would share Alex’s post from Eye Love Knots. This easy pattern is great for a beginner, and I love using cotton crocheted dish cloths!
