Best of the Weekend

Welcome to Best of the Weekend!  We are glad that you are here and are starting your weekend with us.


You may remember that last year the founder of this party, our special co-host Cindy, lost her beloved husband.  It’s been a tough year for Cindy and she has decided that she is going to stop blogging.  This week will be her last party.  We are going to miss her so much.

Since Cindy is leaving, we are looking for a new hostess to replace her.  If you are a blogger and have interest in joining us as a co-host, please either leave a comment on this post or email me at


Amy, Ginnie, Cindy,and I enjoy hosting the Best of the Weekend Party each Friday night at 8pm.

If you don’t already follow us in some way, we’d love for you to do so.

What I Shared This Week

This week the Power Tool Challenge Team shared repurposed projects.  I made a basket using two vintage tennis rackets and an old wooden flag pole.  This month is a reader contest with a chance to win two prize packages from Ryobi tools.  If you have a repurpose project to share, be sure to enter it in the contest.

Cooking With Curls shared her Instant Pot Cheddar Ale Soup.  I’ve made bunches of her Instant Pot recipes and they are all very good.  This soup is on my menu for next week.  If  you haven’t joined in on the Instant Pot craze, you should!  It’s a great way to quickly prepare delicious meals.

My Husband Has Too Many Hobbies shared how she made a Rustic Christmas Garland using old socks.  What a fun upcycle project!
