Throwback Thursday Blog-Style #2: June 19, 2014

Welcome back to... 

I know, I know, Throwback Thursday seems to be all about sharing pictures from the past, great memories that mean something to you, that you would like to share with others. At least that is how it appears to me. Throwback Thursday wasn't something I was participating in, and then I came up with an idea.

I thought it would be great fun and a help to my blog to share old content, but not just any old content. Each week I will share an old blog post from a previous year, any year, BUT it has to be from the current week (for example, something I've posted around June 19th from any previous year)  I will go in, edit the post if needed, add a pinnable image if I don't already have one, and share it on Facebook. 

Would you like to join in? You do not need to edit your past post in any way, you don't need to create a pinnable image, though it couldn't hurt, in fact it will help your blog traffic to add quality pinnable images to your posts. Just go into your archives, choose a favorite post from this current week from any previous year, and link it up below. I will be pinning posts to my appropriate Pinterest boards and will be randomly selecting a Featured Throwback Thursday post to share next week. Just a note, I will be sharing a picture from your post if you are selected as the featured post, but I will link back to your post. I will ALWAYS give credit and link back. By linking up you are giving me permission to use your picture in the post. 

Here is my Throwback Thursday post:

To participate, link up below. It would be great if you could visit several of the other posts that have linked up. Stop by, comment, and pin images so we can help each other.

Happy Throwback Thursday!


  1. Thanks for hosting! I'll be back to check out some of the other linked posts very soon :-)

    1. Thanks for stopping by and participating!

  2. Hi Karen!

    Thanks so much for featuring our DIY Pesticide post! We're loving being a part of your Throwback Thursday series.

    I hear you on the whole dirt/soil thing. Ours is pretty poor as well, so we built raised garden beds and bought organic (read: no chemicals added) soil from Lowe's to fill it, plus mulch to go on top. That has made a huge diff for our garden, I know. We just keep plugging along and we learn more every year.

    Have a great Thursday! :)

    1. Thanks for the additional information on how you do your garden Melanie. It is really too late for us to try this year, at least I think it is. And I know if we do do anything we don't have time for the raised beds this year. Will have to look into prices and such.

    2. Well, lmk if you want to touch base on this next spring. It can be done on a very tight budget (which was so nice for us) and there's only a few things you need to be concerned about accomplishing. Really easy peasy. You can keep me in the back of your mind as a resource! :)

      Btw, Karen, do you have a button you'd like to share with us for Throwback Thursday? I'd love to put it up on our blog!

  3. I love this idea! I realized, however, that for this week, I linked an older post but didn't make sure it was from this week in June. (I think mine is March!) I'm sorry. I just wasn't paying attention!

    1. Don't worry about it Leah. I would prefer that people link up posts from the same time of year, as that was how I had it planned. But I saw a couple of people didn't last time. It's not like I am going to delete the posts or anything. Just glad you stopped by to join in.

  4. Thanks for hosting again! I think I have my comments working now...I just got rid of the goggle+ feature... lost some of my comments in the process, but worth it IMO :D


Thank you for visiting my blog today. I love to read your comments, so please leave me one if you have the time.
