Tuesday Turn About #112 Late Summer Fun

Spread the love

Tuesday Turn About #112 late summer fun is now live! Come and be inspired with summer DIYs and decor that will ease you into the fall season!


At last week’s party, we said ‘hello’ to August!

August is in full swing and autumn will be upon us in no time!

Today, my wonderful boss let me have a last-minute-half-day-off to celebrate my oldest jelly bean’s (aka grandchild’s) sixth birthday!

We went out to lunch with extended family and then visited the local reptile zoo. The kids were thrilled with the surprise excursion and it was fun to see them get excited, and sometimes just a little apprehensive. Well, at least his three-year-old sister and 1.5 year-old cousin had some reservations. But, for the most part, all had fun!

My grandson’s birthday is also a reminder that autumn is just about to “fall” upon us. (See what I did there?)

So, with summer coming to a close in just a few weeks, I thought I would share some late summer fun (aka decor, crafts, and DIYs) with you this week.

And don’t forget…

Firstly, let’s take a look at a couple of tips!

Weekly Household Tip

This week, I’m asking you to confirm a tip I read about this week.

Has anyone ever wrapped banana stems in foil to keep them from ripening too fast? Does it work?

Inquiring minds want to know! Well, at least THIS inquiring mind does! Let me know in the comment section below.

Weekly Blogging Tip

We’ve talked before about cleaning-up broken links on our blogs. However, if that just seems a bit too overwhelming, here’s a ‘short-cut’ that anyone can do in just a few minutes.

What are your top five performing posts? Once a month, take those five posts and check to see if the external links are broken or need to be updated. Taking 15-30 minutes a month to fix your ‘best’ posts is worth it! It will make for a better ‘read’ for your followers and it will make them happy to be able to purchase through your affiliate links with ease!

Now, on with the party!

Late Summer Lakehouse Sideboard

Have you seen the sideboard at Lori’s home? I always love seeing how she decorates it for the season at her blog, Dining Delight. For late summer, she’s given her buffet a lakehouse ‘twist’, and boy is it pretty! So many items, and so much loveliness!

  2. Thanks so much Julie for featuring my Lake Themed Buffet Set Up! I really appreciate it and I am also very grateful for all your efforts in hosting this wonderful weekly party!

  3. Hi Julie! Long time no see! I hope all is well and you’re doing good! I’m hit and miss on the blogging trail these days, but had to pop on and see what was happening! Have a wonderful day! 🙂

  4. Sounds like a fun celebration! I’m still in summer mode over here…and will continue as long as I can. I love fall but I hate to see the summer end! Thanks for hosting and enjoy your week!

  5. I think you are seriously brave! I could never, would never, go into a reptile zoo. No matter how much I loved someone or if someone paid me a million dollars to do it! I’m getting the heebie jeebies just thinking about it! Thanks for the party.

  6. Thanks so much for hosting Julie! I’m glad you were able to spend time with your grandkids. However, your choice of places had me squirming. When my kids were small and we went to the zoo, they always wanted to visit the reptile building. Not wanting to pass along my phobia, (deathly afraid of snakes,) I would always come down with a terrible headache that would only go away if I closed my eyes. So they would lead me through holding my hands. I never opened my eyes once inside! That was the best thing for my hubby too. Seeing one on TV means he will wake to the blood curdling scream when I see it again in my dreams!

  7. Thanks for the party Julie. That sounds like fun day with your family and I am glad you got to leave work early. Summer is flying by for sure. My daughter just started her senior year in high school this week and back to school always means fall to me. Have a great week. XO- MaryJo
