Tuesday Turn About #111 Hello August

Spread the love

The party is welcoming-in a new month! It’s Tuesday Turn About #111 Hello August!


We celebrated last week’s party the “Hallmark way” with Christmas in July! (Well, even the Hobby Lobby way, for that matter!

Can y’all believe it’s August?

This is one of my fave months. Know why? My first grandson was born in August, and my second grandson’s name IS “August”! And, yes, it has gotten a tad confusing at times!

So, with summer coming to a close very soon, and the autumn season just around the corner, we are looking forward to the fall decor, DIYs, recipes, and more! I bet you are, too!

But for now, let’s go ahead and welcome the last ‘real’ month of summer today with some wonderful DIYs and decor, shall we?


Last week, we skipped our weekly tips, but they are back this week!

Weekly Household Tip

One of my favorite ways to keep things organized in the kitchen is to use a tray or basket on the counter. If you don’t do this already, you may want to think about!

Use a tray for coffee items, cleaning items, and even a few decor pieces. I use a basket to hold hand towels and my dishwashing liquid. And if you want to dress up your counter, a pretty vignette is easily removed from the counter and then just as easy to replace when you’re done cooking!

Weekly Blogging Tip

The Yoast SEO plug-in can sometimes be a bit intimidating. Do you feel my pain? Trying to get those two little lights to turn green can be a challenge, at best.

So, I’m here to say, “Don’t sweat it!” I hear from several SEO gurus to ‘write like you talk’. Of course, you want to make sure your spelling and grammar are correct. However, don’t worry about using words or tenses that meet the Yoast criteria. Google is more concerned with content and user-friendliness than whether or not you’ve used enough transition words! 😉

Now… let’s get this party started!

This Is a GOOD Kind of Blues!

Blue is one of my all-time favorite colors to use in a home… and I love wearing it, too! However, I think blue is especially lovely to use in summer! Judith from Botanic Bleu seems to agree with me, though I think she has the corner on blue decor! Visit her post for lovely photos and inspiration!

    And thank you for addressing Yoast SEO. It’s that very point on “transitionary words” that get me every time. I finally had to let it go. I bet a lot of bloggers will appreciate your words of wisdom.
