The Fun In Functional, And A Guest Post! {Link Party #19}

Welcome to The Fun In Functional, the weekly link party hosted on Practically Functional!

First off, I want to let you know that today I’m hanging out over at A Rosie Sweet Home. I’m sharing my favorite fall “craft”. It’s a holiday stove-top potpourri that’s easy to make and makes your house smell WONDERFUL! So stop by and check it out!

If you’re new here, I throw this party once a week on Wednesdays. It’s a place for you to see some awesome projects and find some inspiration. And if you’re a blogger, you can link up any projects you’ve been working on for the past week and show off your creativity!

Please support the blogging community by clicking through to these projects if you find something that interests you. Your visits are important to the bloggers who share their work here! If you link up to the party this week, comment on a few other blogs as well. There’s no downside to networking with other bloggers and finding new ideas!

Last week we had a three-way tie for most popular project!


And here are a few of my favorite projects from last week. Click the pictures to see the full posts!

Remember, if you want to pin these projects, please click over to their blog first! I’ve made these images “un-pinnable” so they aren’t accidentally pinned from here. If you want to learn to make your own images un-pinnable, check out this simple tutorial.



Delicious and adorable!
