Almost Thanksgiving – Best of the Weekend 11-22-19

Well, here we are…it’s almost Thanksgiving!  Hopefully, you are all set for the big turkey day.  Unfortunately, I am behind but like every year, everything ends up falling into place.

Welcome to this week’s edition of Best of the Weekend link party!  We are so happy you could join us!  As always, we invite you to link up your creative posts which may include home decorating, DIY, crafts, recipes, tips and more!

Each week, when you link up to Best of the Weekend, your link will appear on both our blogs.  Let’s meet your hosts…



If you don’t already follow our blogs, we would love for you to follow us in some way:

Shelley from Calypso in the Country | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest | Instagram


Before we begin this week’s party, let’s take a look back at the past week…

Every week, we share the most popular post from the previous week’s party on both of our blogs.  In addition, each hostess picks a few favorites to share.  Be sure to check out each of our blogs to see all the features!

Also, remember to stop by our original Best of the Weekend Pinterest Board  and our newest Best of the Weekend Link Party Features where we pin the features each week!   For now, we will continue to pin the features to both of those boards.

Each week, I also share the features on my Instagram stories so be sure to follow along!



Since it’s almost Thanksgiving, I shared my recent Thanksgiving table and decor in a blog hop hosted by Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home...

  2. Shelley, I enjoyed your features and thank you so much for hosting the party! I understand that hosting a weekly link party can be quite a time commitment. I am very grateful that you and Liberty provide a forum for your fellow bloggers to share ideas, inspiration and stories. I get so much from visiting those who link up, and love to discover new blogs. My traffic varies, but is always the greatest on the first day of the party. That has been my experience whether the party is held weekly or bi-weekly.
