I Did It Myself linky

I've been kind of off kilter for a couple of weeks with staying indoors so much.  The past couple of days has been much warmer and sunshiny but the wind (30+ mph) has kept me inside too.  Further limiting, my craft room has been transformed into a Girl Scout cookie store for Girl Grands troupe  until the end of February.  Of course I don't mind giving the the space because I completely adore her and I spent more time in the kitchen making this mouth watering Lemon Curd.

Lemon Tarts made with Lemon Curd

The scenes in Downton Abbey episodes spend a lot of time drinking tea and eating little cakes, scones and biscuits.  On season 5 episode 2 I noticed they often spread sauce or curd on the breads.  Many years ago a very sweet English lady I worked with made Lemon Curd that she gave in jars as gifts.  Since then I have thought fondly about it and wished I had asked for her recipe.

Sunny day plus Photo link up

Like many of you I enjoy taking pictures.  My taste is broad from sunsets to still life to portraits.  I bet that many of you are like me and would enjoy a place to share your artistry.  No matter if you are using a fancy Nikon or iPhone or Android  it's time to get your favorite family friendly shots out there.  That is why I started this link party where you can show off your creation wordless or not.

Here's my favorite capture of a Sunny Winter Day off my Instagram.


I Did It Myself - Party Linky

A big thank you to all who participated in my first link up party last week.  You can find the entries on my Pinterest FWIW Friends board and you may have seen some of them on my Facebook fan page too.  You are welcome to follow my social media to see more fabulous creations as we go forward with yet another Thursday Party!  Here is the Asparagus Wrapped in Bacon recipe I tried out from Walking on Sunshine at last weeks party.  It was just as simple as she says to make with a big reward in flavor.


FWIW Thursday Link Up

 I really enjoy hopping through link parties.  I find so many new and original ideas. Many are - not yet seen on Pinterest! When I see those I share on my Pinterest, StumbleUpon, G+, Facebook or twitter.  I also try something I have not done before each week which is a lot of fun.  Sometimes I cook (hubs loves that), sometimes I get inspired to redecorate, and sometimes I craft with DIL and a couple of other ladies on craft Sunday.  
I hope you will not only link up your latest creations but will visit some of the other party link ups.  The only rule is that you link up your own creation whether it is crafty, delicious, beautiful or insightful.
