Tuesday Turn About #48 Spring Gardens
Tuesday Turn About #48 Spring Gardens is now live… Come get some great tips for your spring and summer planting!
TUESDAY TURN ABOUT #48 Spring Gardens
You can find last week’s party HERE!
I hope this post finds you well and healthy! And I hope many of you were able to spend the holiday with family (especially moms)!
There were SO many wonderful posts this week, and quite a few newcomers. So fun, and we appreciate each and every one of you because you make this party a success!
This week, I’m thinking about decorating my tiny outside landing in preparation for the Pinterest Challenge. So, naturally, I was drawn to all the gardening-type posts.
Without further delay, grab yourself a snicky-snack and yummy drink and let’s get to it!
Weekly Blogging Tip
Here’s one more Pinterest tip! (Next week we’ll take a break from Pinterest with a new area of blogging, I promise!)
Pinterest wants to give users the best experience possible. For influencers, that means offering ‘fresh’ (new) pins for Pinterest to share. Here are several ways to make ‘fresh’ pins that will help you create the 3-10 (or more) pins for your post:
- Create pins with banners – this means that even if you use a photo you have used as a pin in the past, you can make it ‘fresh’ with a new banner/title (titles can be different than your post… get creative!)
- Use one photo for a whole pin.
- Create a collage of photos for a pin (and mix them up to create another pin!)
Feel free to comment below if you need some additional help or if you’d like to expound on the tip! If you comment, we can all learn together!
Weekly Household Tip
It’s super easy to DIY an extra cabinet shelf that adds more storage in your home. AND, you can even paint it to match the cupboard! See how I did one in my bathroom cupboard HERE.
Now, let’s party!

Now It’s Your Turn! Link Away!
Let’s start sharing! Because this is a party, we encourage all who link up to visit several other bloggers who have linked as well – comments and pins are a great way to spread the love!
Before you get started, take a look at our guidelines:
- This party is for home decor and home-related posts only (recipes, organizing, DIY, crafts, etc.). Link up to 3 related posts. Please do not link up informational posts that do not relate to the topic.
- If you would please not link up shops, advertising, round-ups, other link parties, or any posts promoting sales, we would appreciate it.
- DO NOT PIN FROM IMAGES ON THIS PAGE (it just won’t work right on Pinterest). However, please visit the original post/source and pin from there. That works perfectly!
- By linking to the party, you give us permission to share your projects on our blogs and social media. We will always give proper credit with a no-pin image.
I have a feeling summer posts are coming soon! It will fit right in with our heat wave here in So Cal! Bring ’em on!

Thanks for the party, Julie. I hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day. Your Pinterest tips are great. I’ve been working for the last few months on creating new fresh pins for old posts- that can be so time consuming-but I’m seeing positive results already.
Yay! I’m so glad you are getting results with new pins… it really does make a difference in traffic!
Great features and thanks for hosting!
Thanks, Cindy! Hugs!
Great features Julie – I’m so inspired to get out in the garden after work! (Assuming it’s not pouring down rain, of course!) 😉 Hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day! Take care and stay safe out there!
Thanks, Barbara! I hope you had a great day, as well!
In spring I think we just naturally turn towards gardens regardless of size. This year I think I’ll depend on online orders for plants other than the bulbs I usually get.
That is smart, Sandra. Our Home Depot is open, so I may bebop on over to see what they have!
Thanks for hosting each week, Julie! I like your Pinterest tip that you shared, I have been trying to update/freshen up some of my pins as well. While on that topic have you (or anyone else) found an ideal number of pins per day?
I’m glad you liked the tip, Katy… I don’t think there is an ‘ideal’ amount of pins… no one ever wants to commit to set numbers. It really depends on how much content you have, IMHO. Because I post about 1-2 times per week, I don’t have the same amount of content as many bloggers (darn that FT job!). So, I schedule about 10 pins of my own content each day, and then I schedule 5 pins from others. Then, every few days, I do some manual pinning and follow some new accounts. This works for me. I think the 50% ratio is a bit high, but I like to pin those that pin me… if that makes sense. What are you doing these days with pins?
Thank you for hosting! This is what I featured the week of 5-4 to 5-8 on my blog. On Tuesday were. Wednesday was Thursday was . And winding up this Week of Homemade Staples is Homemade Confectioners Sugar. Enjoy!
Thank you so much for another wonderful party. Have a lovely week.
Thanks for being here, Chas!
Thanks so much for the feature, my friend! I’m so happy to be back at the party this week. I hope your Mother’s Day was wonderful. Have a beautiful week!
I’m so happy you are here, too! Yes, I think we both had nice Mother’s Days! 😉
Thanks for the party.
So glad you are here!
Looking forward to seeing what you do with your outside landing, Julie. We celebrated Mother’s Day with curbside social distancing visits and it was so nice to see the kids and grandkids again after so long. I hope your week has been a good one so far!
I’m SO glad you were able to see your kids and grandkids… this has definitely been a hardship, for sure!
Thanks so much for hosting! I had a wonderful mother’s day with my boys and husband. We went and dropped off gifts to my mother, mother in law, and sister too.
That sounds so wonderful, Joanne! So glad you had a lovely day!
Thanks for hosting this party. I am sharing my Sweet Corn Fritters. Congratulations on your new grand baby. What a wonderful blessing,
Thanks, Bev! So glad to have you here this week! Can’t wait to look at your recipe!
Thanks for hosting!
You bet, Amber!
Thanks so much for hosting, Julie! I always get so much inspiration from the features you guys choose and the tips you offer. I hope your week has been a happy one. Hugs, CoCo
