Tuesday Turn About #52 Paper Pleasantries
The party has started! Tuesday Turn About #52 is live and I have some ‘paper pleasantries’ for you to enjoy!
TUESDAY TURN ABOUT #52 Paper Pleasantries
If you missed last week’s party, be sure to checkout TTA #51!
This week has been crazy, in more ways than one, don’t you agree?!
During these times of unrest and change, I’m so thankful that the Lord is always faithful and never changes!
What are you up to this week? We had a blessed time at my son’s house this past weekend, and now we have a family graduation this weekend! Whew!
Let’s just get right to the party, shall we? This week all the paper projects caught my eye! I wish I could have featured ALL of them!
But first, let’s get some tips!
Weekly Blogging Tip
When you are using ANY affiliate links in a post, be sure to include a disclosure statement prior to adding any links. This will follow affiliate guidelines AND make Google happy, too!
You can see my disclosure statement in any of my DIY/craft posts, like my Easy Magnolia Market Pocket Makeover.
Weekly Household Tip
Do you dread going down the spice aisle because those pretty little bottles of yummy-ness are just so darn expensive?
Well, next time you need some ground nutmeg, cinnamon sticks, cumin or whatever your pantry might be missing, take a stroll down the international food aisle! In the Mexican food area, you will find a section with spices in little cellophane bags! They are just as good as the spices in the pretty jars, and you’ll be shocked by the price!
Let me know if you already use this little money-saving tip!
Okay… let’s take a look at some pretty paper projects!

This Week’s Features:
Paper Seedlings is sharing a beautiful watercolor-look greeting card with lovely poppies as the feature. I think the white accent paper looks like leather. What do you think?
This lovely lantern is actually made from paper and pressed flowers! Gorgeous, right?! Check-out how Jayne from Chalking Up Success makes these lovely hanging lights! Perfect for cool summer evenings on the patio!
More Ferns and Paper
Don’t you just love the look of ferns in the summertime? Whether it’s in a planter, on a lantern (wink), or on a pretty card! Terri from Nuts About Stamping is sharing this lovely greeting card that you can create and send as encouragement to a loved one!

Thanks for hosting and enjoy your week!
Thanks, Shelley! You, too!
Hi Julie! Happy Tuesday! I’m looking to reading your posts, and your features too – they all look great! Hope you have a lovely week – take care and stay safe! 💗
Thanks, Barbara! Hugs!
I have never thought about checking the international aisle for spices. I’m going to look the next time I go shopping. Around here we have Amish stores that have great prices for spices.
Oh, I’m so jealous you have Amish markets… definitely need to see that when I visit!
We buy a lot of spices at the local Indian grocery market in town – it is ah-MAY-zing how little it costs from there! They also have great prices on dried beans, lentils, and rice, AND tea biscuits (to which I am addicted!)
Oooo, I need to check into our local Indian market… I actually work in the Little India area here in So Cal, so it won’t be hard to check it out!
Thanks for the spice shopping tip
Of course, Gail… so glad you joined us!
Thanks, Julie, for choosing my Peaceful Poppies card to be one of your wonderful Features this week. I feel so honored! Smiles, Linda at Paper Seedlings
It’s a beautiful card, Linda! Glad to have you with us!
Thanks for hosting! Have a great week!
You, too, Cindy!
Thank you so much for hosting the party.
Have a great week,
Always love seeing what is going on at your place, Kippi!
Thank you for hosting! This is what I featured the week of 6-1 to 6-5 on my blog. On Tuesday was Spinach Salad With Crab Cake and Grilled Shrimp. Wednesday saw Roast Beef Waldorf Salad. Thursday was Lobster and Crab Salad Over A Warm Roll. And winding up this Salad Week was Tips For Storing Greens. Enjoy!
I’m trying your lettuce ‘trick’ right now! I’ll let you know how it goes!
Thank you so much for hosting great parties each week.
Thank you for hosting, Julie! Linking up my Patio Refresh from a couple of weeks ago. Only one other new post and it is about my father-in-law. Hope you are doing well! We are heading home from Sacramento tomorrow from ten days here for Pete’s b-day remembrance, memorial and a lot of cleaning/organizing in his garage and three sheds (mostly Charles for his father and to help out his mother).
Chat with you again soon,
I hope you are all doing well. Losing a patriarch is so hard in so many ways. Hope you get to rest and gain some peace through Him since you are back home.
Thank you for hosting this week Julie! I always appreciate the time and energy that goes into setting up these posts so that we might all share and learn from each other. It is so enjoyable reading about your tips. In the past couple of years, I have been buying spices from the Mexican food area so I was familiar with this, but it took me many years to discover this! Also, I buy a lot of my main spices from the 99 Cent Store and the Dollar Tree. They are only a dollar and are actually as good as the expensive ones. Hope this finds you well and I wish you a wonderful week!

See, I KNEW I wasn’t the only one that did this! Go you! Thank you for sharing, too! We love having you here!
Thanks so much for featuring my pressed flower lanterns Julie, I really appreciate it! Here we have the choice of buying pretty little containers or HUGE bags of spice! I always buy the huge bags and refill my large glass spice jars – saves so much money and I don’t run out as quickly! Enjoy your graduation weekend!
That is so nice, Jayne… From what I am learning from Marissa, things go at a much more ‘relaxed’ pace there, so buying in bulk would make sense! 😉
I really love your features this week Julie! What a fun theme. Thank you so much for hosting!
Always thrilled to have you with us, Kim!
Hi Julie! Yes! I knew about the spices. I discovered it several years ago and haven’t looked back since! I’m convinced you are paying for the nice jars in the regular section! Have a happy rest of your week sweet lady! 🙂
I knew you were a smart lady! So glad to have you with us here, my friend!
It’s always fun to gather at your blog hop each week, Julie! Thanks so much for hosting. 2020 has been bananas already! We definitely have a lot of learning, listening and healing to do this summer. I hope yours is off to a great start. Hugs, CoCo
Agreed, my friend! Praying lots over the situations, and my thoughts and attitudes about them!
thanks so much for hosting, Julie. Love coming over for your party!
Always love having you here, Debra!
I’ve never looked down the Mexican food aisle for bags of spices but we do buy our spices in bags to refill and reuse those expensive spice jars. I hope you’re having a good week, Julie 🙂
Thanks, Marie… Yes, I can get a bag of really nice cinnamon for 99 cents!
I have never noticed a Mexican area in our grocery store but I will definitely be looking the next time we go! I tend to buy spices at the dollar store or places like Christmas Tree shops which I know isn’t always the best.
Huh… I never thought of those places to buy spices, either! That’s great, Joanne!
