Have you ever really thought of your blogging friends like flowers in a garden of life?
I do hope you notice the new design collage for the featured submissions and hopefully you can visualize they look like flowers as like flowers, fellow bloggers and their submissions come in many varieties.
First of all, I’d like to thank everyone for their participation and continued support of the “warm and welcoming” Say G’day Party and seems when I asked Are You Looking Forward To Enjoying A Party HEAPS of people were!
Not only were people looking forward to enjoying the Say G’day Party last week, but I love the interaction all participants have with me as the host and in sharing fellow blogger’s submissions, and making new blogger friends along the way!
Remember, the submissions do not have to be new posts, so just because you might have had a “crazy and or challenging” week, does not mean you are not able to celebrate at each week’s party, as I would not like for anyone to miss out, so please continue the wonderful work of sharing and caring, at this “personalized party” as the Say G’day Party is ALL about YOU!

Last week, the party had over 100 submissions and I’d really like to keep a personal goal of reaching 100 submissions each week, as it gives me great pleasure in not only “meeting and greeting” you all at the party, but in featuring some of the submissions that caught me eye!
It is always fun catching up with you at the party and finding about more about your week and what passionately excites you!
All people will be contacted personally with my second “I’ve Been Featured” badge which people will have the option to add to their blogs!
For those who have been following my blog, know my love for churros and how could I possibly go past Christine from A Sprinkle of This and That‘s Banana Churros with her delectably delicious description of “has that crunchy cinnamon sugar exterior and is filled with strawberries, bananas and hazelnut spread!”
As if that was not enough, Christine then adds “some chocolate syrup and whip cream!”
Are you in churros heaven with me?
Even though it is freezing here in Adelaide, Lisa from Cooking with Curls‘ Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream‘s photo caught my eye right away!
What a wonderful combination of blueberry and cheesecake and I would never have thought to combine the two in making ice cream!
What I also liked about Lisa’s recipe, is she has not only included a “dairy-free version,” but provides “If you use vegan cookies, you can even make this Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream for your vegan friends.”
What is one to do when their husband comes home with 15 plants?
Anne from Upstate Ramblings provides a very creative Easy Succulent Centerpiece.
Having not been blessed with the “green thumb gene,” this easy DIY project will be perfect for me!
When I was little, I used to love chocolate chip anything….muffins, pancakes, cakes!
My parents stopped asking me what I wanted for breakfast as my “free spirited answer” was always “CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS!!!,” or pancakes or cake!
It was on this odd occasion that my dad used to call my mum by her first name and it was “suggested” she “sort me out!”
I could not go past Michelle from Dishes and Dust Bunnies The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Muffins!
When I saw Jas from All That’s Jas‘ Greek Milk Pie – Galaktoboureko, I
Okay, I S-Q-U-E-A-L-E-D loudly, as this reminded me of a pie I used to enjoy when I was a little girl growing up in New York around old world Greek families!
Thank you Jas for allowing me to relive those wonderful childhood food memories!
Shinee from Sweet and Savory certainly had a challenging week, but when I saw her step-by-step Homemade Sushi Rolls, I just wanted to reach through the screen and try one, okay two; probably more!
I don’t know about you, but I am certainly craving sushi now!
I am known as mickeydownunder in the food industry, my nickname is mickeydownunder via most social media and so it was not any surprise when I saw Navy Wifey Peters Aboard the USS Crafty’s Blue Mickey Mouse Mug Rugs.
Did you really think they would not catch my eye?
I had previously never heard of a mug rug, so that too had me intrigued!
I would LOVE one of these!
You know how you “just click” with certain flowers in the garden of life, oh, I mean blogger friends?
I LOVE Moroccan food and when I saw Evelyne from Cheap Ethnic Eatz‘s Moroccan Tangine Berber I was “food smittened!”
Please hop over and check out her “wonderfully spiced warming recipe!”
Not only do you get to view Evelyne’s recipe, but Evelyne provides a bit about the Berbers history and how the dish was named!
Did you know it was from the vessel it is cooked it?
Evelyne and I belong to the North African and Middle Eastern Cooking Club, and other food related groups that are fun!
Please tell me I am not the only one who has “lemony” days!
Wanda Ann from Memories by the Mile‘s Perfect Lemon Bars certainly satisfied my “I want something lemon” today!
Why not check out WHO made these bars for Wanda Ann to brighten her day?
I must admit with the 4th of July coming soon, as soon as I saw Kristi from i should be mopping the floor‘s Red Velvet Brownie Star Stacks, how could I resist?
I feel like a brownie right now and always enjoy seeing recipes that include red, white and blue!
I was almost as excited for Linda from Best of Long Island and Florida‘s Strawberry Cheesecake Sweet Rolls!
These were the first sweet rolls Linda made and I dare say they won’t be her last!
I love strawberries and have a strong connection to both New York and Florida!
Last, but certainly not least, when I saw Plush Possum Studio‘s Meet Victoria Our Paper Doll, this so reminder me of paper dolls that I had in childhood!
I could literally spend hours and hours, changing clothes and accessories on paper dolls and perhaps somewhere inside, there is a fasionista inside me!
I do hope you enjoyed the featured submissions today!
Which of the above would you like to try or make?
Do you agree blogger friends are like flowers in the garden of life?
If you could be a flower, which one would you be?
