Foodie Friday and Everything Else

Foodie Friday and Everything Else Link Party
Party with us every Thursday Afternoon and all-day Friday
at Rattlebridge Farm.

I'd like to introduce Jasper, our 10-week old Scottish Terrier puppy! I have been away from my blog, but I can't wait to share his adventures with you. Shortly before he came home, a family member experienced a sudden illness and ended up in ICU (all better now, thankfully).
You can see more pictures of Jasper HERE.

You'll be inspired by last week's featured stories:

If you're looking for a quick--and gorgeous--recipe for the holiday, check out an easy, cold strawberry soup by Pamela at Brooklyn Farm Girl.

Mary has put together a beautiful, dazzling array of ideas for the holiday weekend. You'll love her "Star-Spangled Celebration" --  visit her at Home Is Where the Boat Is

My attention was captured instantly by Angie's superlative article about using corrugated metal in the modern farmhouse. Get the details at Knick of Time. I'm putting this on my "to-do" list!

Barbara at Fair Meadow Place shared a lovely patriotic tablesetting. The details are charming and festive.

Ashley from Simply Designing shared holiday food and decorating ideas, starting with a flag centerpiece and ending with a free print.

**Note: If you see anything you'd like to pin, please visit the featured blogs and pin from there.

  4. Hi Michael,

    I'm sorry your family member was sick and glad to hear they're doing better now. Oh, that Jasper is just a cutie pie!! I do love me some Scottie puppies. :D I remember when we went to get Duncan from the breeder, his little siblings were just roaming all over the floor, walking across our feet, untying my shoes, etc. So adorable!

    Jasper is one lucky little Scottie, and I know you're thrilled to have him in his new home. Have a great weekend, Michael!



  5. Oh my, hello Jasper! It's a pleasure to meet you - I've been waiting for this moment. You sure are handsome. And you know what? I think your eyes indicate a dog soul much older than your 10 weeks say. Truly - those eyes are very expressive, and serious.
    Michael Lee, thank you for hosting. I'm glad your family matters are better. Have a fun-filled 4th with your new pup.

  6. Oh I'm so excited to meet Jasper, I had to click over and see...such soulful eyes and yes a smile like Zap's! Looking forward to seeing more! Wishing everyone including Jasper a long and Happy 4th weekend and thank you for sharing my Star-Spangled Celebration! ♥
