Saturday Snapshots Week Seventeen is showing signs of all seasons if you look around. Many are talking Christmas in July, which is pretty evident if you visit most any craft shop. Do you plan your Christmas decor from year to year? Next week’s Saturday Snapshots will start a week of Christmas on the blog.
Another highlight for me and about 250 of my closest blogging friends, is we will be on our final day of Haven Conference in Atlanta. This DIY – Blogging Conference has been happening for ten years, even virtual last year. My how things have changed each year I have attended. I’m not sure social media was a phrase used that often.
In this area (Chattanooga), many are gearing up for the ultimate sale – The Longest Yard Sale, going from Alabama to Michigan comes through this area. Great finds can be found but you will have to brave the crowds, traffic and my least favorite – heat. But it doesn’t stop people from coming from all over the world during the first weekend of August. Have you ever shopped this sale?
ICYMI this past week:

This SPICY PEACH SALSA is great for a dip, but use it to top a grilled pork chop or chicken to add some extra flavor. I have a boneless pork loin ready to grill and have this on.
