TUESDAY TURN ABOUT #89 More Spring
We are welcoming March with spring projects and DIYs this week! And there are some lovely features from last week’s party here at My Wee Abode AND…
For those wondering, my mom continues to heal, and we are thankful.
It is taking a while for me to get back my energy after the surgery, etc. I’m really hoping to get back into the groove this coming week!
Now, let’s party… but, before we look at features, let’s take a gander at some tips!
Weekly Household Tip
For a change this week, I’m going to ask YOU for a tip!
Do you all have a solution to keep top sheets tucked in under your mattress? I’m looking for a miracle cure! Leave your best tips/product suggestions for this situation in the comments! PLEASE!!!
Weekly Blogging Tip
If you are using Gutenberg, there may be an issue happening with your external links that you aren’t aware of…
Gutenberg seems to auto-attach the ‘no referrer’ code to all external links, including affiliate links from Amazon Associates and the like. “No referrer” code essentially disables tracking on external links. What this means is you can’t see (via Google Analytics) if someone clicked from my link to your blog. And Amazon can’t see that someone clicked on a link from your blog (which is a violation of Amazon policies).
Mind you, there may be some differences of opinions as far as affiliate links are concerned, but I really do like to see if I received some pageviews from another blogger, don’t you?
For more information, and how to fix this issue in less than 10 minutes, take a look at this article from iMark Interactive.
Now, let’s get to the party!

This Week’s Features:
My friend Jenn from The Everyday Farmhouse is showing us a super cool project! She’s using leather and a burning tool to create these lovely popsocket covers. Yep… a stylish classic look for an otherwise funky trend!
Near and Dear…
Isn’t this crocheted pillow cover lovely??? Sara from Birdz of a Feather is sharing this lovely boho pillow cover she crocheted, including the pattern that YOU can use to make it! All the proceeds are going to Alzheimer’s research, as Sara and her hubby lost both of their mothers in January to this extremely difficult disease.
This is especially near and dear to me, as many of you know my siblings and I are going through the adjustments of a mother dealing with dementia. Please go take a look, and consider purchasing the pattern for yourself or a friend! Thank you!
This Is SO Wonki!
Aren’t these dishes lovely? The grayish hues and embossed look of these dishes make me stop and stare… for a good long time! MaryJo at Masterpieces of My Life is sharing her obsession with Wonki Ware and exactly what it’s all about! (Have you heard of this dishware? I hadn’t, but I want some for sure!)
Check out our Tuesday Turn About Link Party Pinterest board! All NINE featured posts are pinned to this board each week!

Julie, I have used these bed sheet clips successfully……https://www.amazon.com/Elastic-Mattress-Grippers-Suspender-Fasteners/dp/B01N3OJHTY/ref=asc_df_B01N3OJHTY/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=191932266410&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=3532596556465822207&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9029703&hvtargid=pla-366378685877&psc=1
How do you use those on top sheets?
Hope you continue to heal
Oh, thanks, Gail… My mom had the surgery… I was just helping her recover. 🙂 She’s doing well!
Hi Julie! Thank you for another fun party and featuring the Wonki Ware dishes. They are truly unique. I am glad you liked them too and I love the back story. Have a wonderful week. XO- MaryJo
I’m going to be keeping my eye out for them now!
I use the grippers too and when they loose their stretch I get new ones as they do work.
How do you use them on top sheets?
Top sheets you would take a side on both sides and leave the corner to tuck in. This is hard to explain but on fitted sheets the corner is now a curve and the sharp corner is no longer. So on top sheets you need to work as if the corner no longer is. I could show you easier and even draw a picture if I could draw.
Thanks, Fernie! I so appreciate your help!
Thanks so much for hosting this lovely party each week!! It is greatly appreciated!!! Stay safe, healthy and most of all, happy!!
You, too, sweet friend!
Julie, your blogging tip made my heart sink. I’m on Blogger and I was told by a reliable source to manually add the noreferrer code to ALL my links. Yikes, now I’m panicking. As for your sheet question, I’d love to know the answer too.
Don’t confuse the no-referrer with no-follow, Marie… No-follow should be on all your affiliate links. 🙂
No, I completely understand how no-follow works, I’m talking about the no-referrer on links.
Hmmm… Well, so many differing opinions in blogging, right?! 😉
So glad your mom’s getting better Julie, and that your energy is coming back! Also, good to know about Gutenberg – I’m going to check and see how mine’s set up now. Thanks so much for hosting, as always, and take care down there!
Thanks, Barbara… we had to make a quick and difficult decision this week to move her from her current AL to a new one… asap. It’s been on my mind 24/7!
Thanks for another lovely party with so much spring inspiration!
Niky @ The House on Silverado
Of course, Niky! Love having you here!
Hi Julie! So thrilled to be joining in with you this week. Thank you so much for being such a dedicated host and bringing together all of these talented friends–you’re the best! xo, Kristi
Girl! You have been missed! So happy to see you, and your blog! Hugs, and welcome back!
I have never heard of Wonki Ware dishes but I feel everything I’ve made in my pottery class could be labeled the same. 😉
You are too funny! But, isn’t it lovely? I will SO be looking for this at antique stores and thrift stores!
So many fun Spring links to dive into this week, Julie! I love all the features you chose. Thanks so much for hosting. I hope your week is a special one, CoCo
Thank you, sweet friend… I’m so enjoying your spring posts!
My solution to the top sheet problem is not to use one! We have a duvet instead. No tucking involved! It makes making the bed SO much easier to make.
Oh!!! Good solution! 😉
Julie, your lavenders this past week were gorgeous! It doesn’t take much for me to beeline right to dishes, so Mary Jo’s post struck a chord with me! I shared a St Patrick’s Day table with dishes given to me (!), and took readers on a tour of our antique mall this week. Thanks for inviting us in. I hope your week is going well.
Thanks you, Rita! Always love having you with us!
Thank you for the party.
You are so welcome, Amy! Thanks for joining!
I’m sure the adjustments surrounding your mom’s illness have been difficult. Big hugs to you my friend 🙂
Thank you! We have even more, too! She fell again the other day, and I caught the med techs giving her meds the wrong way… again! (at least ten times, so you know it’s all the time!)
Hey there! Thank you for sharing my popsocket covers! I always enjoy your blogging tips too!
Thanks, Jennifer… enjoy your posts, as well!
Thank you so very much Julie for featuring the Kayla pillow this week! It means so much to me to play a small part in fundraising for Alzheimer’s. I’m so sorry you and your siblings are going through the same challenges with your mom; sending hugs!
Regarding the sheets, Shark Tank just featured a new product called Better Bedder. It’s essentially a wide stretchy Spandex band that goes around the mattress and holds the top sheet in place. As DIY’ers, there’s probably an easy way to DIY this (link is here: https://allsharktankproducts.com/shark-tank-products-home/better-bedder-bed-sheet-holder-belt/) 🙂
Thanks for the tip, Sara! I saw a ‘rubber band’ that would fit around the foot of the bed… it seemed easier to use, but I can’t find it anywhere. It was on Amazon before. However, the knots are working, and it didn’t cost a cent! 😉
