Saturday Sweeps: The Home Life

In the world of television, “Sweeps” is the periodic analysis of who is watching which programs both in terms of numbers and demographic data.

Because I spend an inordinate amount of time sweeping through (& being thoroughly entertained by) blogs, websites, Pinterest boards and all things web, I thought that I would start sharing my favorite weekly “Sweeps” with you, along with highlights of what’s been happening on The Silver Pen.

Since the HOTY (a/k/a Husband Of The Year) and I have been traveling this week, I’ve developed a case of homesickness. The truth is that I have major wanderlust, but am a closet homebody (actually, not so closeted!). So, this week I’ve been especially inspired by my inner homemaker because, after all, there’s no place like home!

Habitually Chic’s Tickled Pink

A Cup of Joe’s How to Raise Kids like a French Woman

Mrs. Lillien’s Laundry post

Coco + Kelly’s  FROM FANTASY TO FÊTE: GAME NIGHT via Camille Styles

 The Neat Method’s Five Items Under $5 That Will Change the Way you Live (& organize your home!)

Martha Stewart’s Cleaning Products 101: Cleaning without Chemicals

 T’s clever iPad gadgets for the home office

A Way to Garden’s Herb Q & A with Rose Marie Nichols McGee was super fun and informative, though I have ZERO greeness in my thumb (or any other appendage)!

Have a Silver Lined weekend!
