Tweak It Tuesday #108

Last week on Tweak It Tuesday, Rose Vignettes showed off a  shower in which everyone took a pretty apron home. Love this!

The Charm Of Home has a knack for making her food look so delightfully beautiful.

Confessions Of A Serial DIYER created a fall vignette inspired by nature's colors.

A Joyful Cottage baked this pie.

The Heathered Nest found a lonesome treasure and turned it into a princess of a find.

Sweet Nothings, probably the best cook in West Texas, shows a little of her kitchen.

New pet photo from Nicer Than New. Meet Chester.

Meatloaf And Melodrama painted some jars to celebrate Halloween.

Just Jan showed us her romantic and gorgeous bedroom.

Sunny Simple Life cooked some cheesy summer squash.

My Thrift Store Addiction brought the industrial look to the celebration of Halloween and fall.

Mila's Little Things came up with a seasonal bucket list.

Ms Toody Goo Shoes whipped up some basil mayonnaise.

Nancy's Daily Dish, the queen of transfer ware far and wide, showed off a lovely vignette using her wares.

Karen's Up On The Hill has all the makings for a delectable fall dessert.

Revived By Delia painted a piece of furniture that looks to me like the Pacific Ocean. Lovely, isn't it?

J. Biggs Little Pieces showed a fall tablescape.

Rosemary & Thyme puts together such beauty that it could all be pages of a magazine. I would not know the difference!

We have another enchilada recipe this week from Simply Design Life.

I guess you guys have noticed that there is no rhyme or reason to how many blog features I showcase. I know it is customary to select a certain number, but I don't usually do what's customary. So if you think I feature too many, please leave your remarks in the comments. 

I also don't ask that you follow me here and follow me there and, and as you've noticed, I'm not too picky. Having a link back to my blog would be nice though.

And another thing you've likely noticed is that I crop and resize your photos. I'm not crazy about watermarks, because I personally think they detract from the photo if they're very big, so sometimes I will cut that off. 

My goal is not to change your photo, but to bring out the best in each one. I don't always show the photo you send over either. I go through each blog post and find the photo that I think best represents the others that week. I know instantly when I see "the right one."

I spend hours "tweaking" the photos to make sure they are shown in their best light. I hope you don't mind my taking this liberty.

Having said all that, now let's see what you've been tweaking this week!


  1. Happy Fall! Thanks for the wonderful party and super features! Have a great week!

  2. Tweak Away, Brenda! That is nothing but good for a blogger being featured! I think it's great you have a few more features, there are all standouts!

    Thanks for including me and thank you for for hosting!

  3. Thanks for hosting and please continue to do whatever-the-hell-you-want-to! :) :)

  4. Brenda,
    Happy Fall to you!! It is my favorite Season!! Fantastic features!! Thanks so much for hosting!!


  5. Hi Brenda! Thanks a bunch for sharing my pie in your features. It's a joy to be among these very talented and creative bloggers. Linking up this week with a tour of Little House on the Hill, the first installment of Living Large In Small Spaces. I think you'll enjoy reading how this couple is living in retirement debt free. By the way, Chester is a cutie. Have a great week! ~ Nancy

  6. Thanks for the feature:) Lots of great ideas this week- love basil mayonnaise recipe!

  7. It's your blog, Coach; you call the shots!!

    Gorgeous features, the more the merrier!

    Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful week!


  8. Brenda, thanks for hosting the party hun and have a great week. :-)

  9. The features are always the best part of the party! It's hard to visit everyone and this way, we can see a few that we might have missed! I'll link up tomorrow! Sweet hugs, Diane

  10. Hi Brenda, thanks so much for featuring my pumpkin patch and for hosting another fun party! Have a great week!

  11. Thank you always Brenda. Love the variation in features each week, done your way.

  12. Those aprons are so cute, but Chester really stole the show for me! Dogs have a ways of stealing my heart. Thanks Brenda! Have a great week.

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  13. Thank you for including my jar pumpkins with the other features -- love them all! I think it's nice that there are so many features here, and they are all so different. Thanks for doing what you do. :)

  14. OMG! I want Chester!! So adorable!

    Do whatever you want Brenda. I personally don't think there are too many features, but it doesn't matter what I think anyway. It's your blog.

    One thing I would LOVE to know is how you get the pictures to be so big and so clear? I also like the square shape. What are the pixels you're adjusting to? TIA!!


  15. OK, I looked again and I see they're not really square, but more rectangular. I think I have noticed though that some of your personal pics are squarish, right?

  16. I want to be invited to a shower where I take home a cute apron! The more features the better, because with my slow computer I don't visit as many links as I'd like to and this way I see some great features that I otherwise wouldn't have. Thanks for hosting again this week, Brenda!

  17. Hey Brenday, thanks for always hosting a great party....and some really great features...I'm in love with Chester!

  18. Always love your features Brenda, and the way that you share them. Thank you for hosting and dedicating so much time to your fabulous party each and every week. -Kristi

  19. Your features are always great and now I know why the photos always looks so awesome! The apron as a take home gift from a shower is the cutest idea ever! I'll be back later with a post!

  20. Thanks -- and it is your blog -- do it your way!

  21. Thanks so much for hosting again this week! I personally like the fact that you do a lot of features--sometimes I don't get around to all of them and it helps me pick up on great things I might have otherwise missed. Also, I appreciate the wide variety of features that you choose.

  22. Beautiful features! Thanks for hosting. Jane

  23. Thanks for featuring my Fall vignette, Brenda! I love that beautiful blue table! Enjoy the rest of your week! XO

  24. Thanks. I found some very interesting blogs I hadn't seen before.

  25. Hi Brenda!
    Thank you so much for the feature! :) I'm so tickled!
    It's always a fun party. Thank you for hosting.

  26. Dearest Brenda - All of the features are amazing and make me feel happy that Fall is here. Thanks so much for hosting and blessings to you.

  28. Dear Sweet lady...thanks so much for featuring a spot of my kitchen. I love every single one of the features...and you are so nice to say such sweet things about them. I had to laugh when you said I might be a good cook and then I am linking up muffins FROM A MIX...just tweaked a bit....hahhaa...
    Thanks again...

  29. Brenda, thank you for featuring my Basil Mayonnaise! It is always a thrill to see something featured that you've worked hard on, so I, for one think it is wonderful that you showcase as many as you do. And I have no problem if you tweak the pics, either. I think it is an exceptional group of features, this week! I've got a lot to check out!

  30. Thanks for hosting! Have a fabulous week. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  31. I think you pick fabulous features, and they all look wonderful. Sounds great! :)

  32. Happy first day of Fall! Thanks so much for the party!
    This is my first time linking up with you! I pinned your Party, too!
    Thanks again,
    Theresa @ Shoestring Elegance

  33. I don't have a blog..but I do enjoy looking at blogs that I have never seen for me include as many as you want!!!

  34. Thanks so much for hosting the party and I love looking at all the features! Have a wonderful week.

  35. What fun reading through the list! Thank you so much for adding my photo! And you can do anything you want it it :)
    Have a great day and Thanks again!

  36. Lots of fall pretties. I think that apron idea is a real winner. xo Laura

  37. The features this week are the most awesome I've ever seen, starting with the incredible apron picture which I've pinned. In fact I pinned every apron picture on her blog post - so many beautiful ideas for gifts. Each one of the pictures you highlighted are, as you said, magazine worthy, and certainly make a girl rush to the blog to read the post and enjoy all the pictures (and again, pin away). Thanks for all the work you do to make Tweak It Tuesday's features the best around.


  38. Thanks Brenda for featuring my adorable pup Chester. He is such a sweetie and growing too fast. I really enjoy your blog and your photos. Have a great week.

  39. Thank you for hosting! Enjoy your day. Maria

  44. I enjoy looking at all the lovely pictures you feature. Your blog is one I never rush through, always like to read it when I am unhurried.

  45. I enjoy seeing all the blogs you feature, I don't care how many it is. When I click over to a blog from here, I try to remember to tell them that I saw their post on your blog. Thank you for spending your time making Tuesday's posts great!

  46. Wonderful features!! But I'd have to choose Chester. What a cutie he is! :-)

  47. Happy Fall Brenda! Lovely features! Thanks for hosting!

  48. Oh my goodness, so many wonderful features Brenda. I've scrolled back up twice already to click on them. The chicken enchiladas made my mouth water. I love Mexican food so I can't wait to check out that recipe. Jan's blog is so beautiful! She is one of my new favorites. I love her style.

    Thank you so much for featuring me this week. I can't tell you how flattering it is!

    Have a great week! Aren't you glad we've had a little nicer weather?


  49. Hello Brenda. Happy Autumn to you. Thanks for the feature this week. It was such a pleasant surprise. You made my day.

    Great party and beautiful features.


  50. I think you do a great job of featuring the various blog posts, Brenda. Always intriguing and interesting to see what's there. Thanks for all your time and work bringing pleasurable reading to others. Blessings, Bess

  51. I love the way you introduce us to so many sites. You do a great job with the various photographs. It is always fun to find out what's new, and to see blogs that I already follow being featured.


I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time. I appreciate each and every one of you!
