Share Your Style #51

Welcome to the Share Your Style Party!!!!
A big thank you to all the ladies 
for inviting me to join them in co-hosting the party every week!!!

Lynn from The Vintage Nest is our host this week.

I am so delighted to announce two new hosts will be joining us in our future Share Your Style parties.  Des of Peeking thru the Sunflowers and Julie of Little Farmstead both have beautiful blogs with gorgeous photography and inspiration galore.  This means you will now have five hosts and five blogs which means lots of exposure for you when you add your blog link to our party each week.  And we love to have you....we really do.  I am your host for today's party......Lynn @ The Vintage Nest and so happy to see you.

My first feature pick from last week's inspiration is from Shabbyfufu.  She shares she is working on simplifying her home and shows us a corner of her living room with a few winter elements in it.....gorgeous...isn't it?

Chelsea of Two Twenty One blog, shows us how to make tissue paper flowers.  With Spring just around the corner, which means graduations, baby, bridal showers and all manner of parties, these would be gorgeous and inexpensive decor.  

Laura of the blog Decor to Adore, received a ton of vintage doilies and wandered what to do with them.  I hope she doesn't mind me sharing her pretty face, but I just had to show you the beautiful scarf she made from them.  How romantic!  Thank you Laura for sharing. 

And finally, I just had to share something red for Valentine's Day and I think Virtually Yours does it perfectly with these delicious and beautiful cupcakes.  This photo has me drooling!

If you were featured we would love for you to take and use this button for your blog.  You deserve it!    Don't forget to add a link back on our blog to the party and please visit some other blogs.  It's such a great way to make new friends and keep the old.  

xoxo Lynn.......Now let's get this party started with your personal style.....vintage, antiques, make-overs, do-overs, recipes

A little paint project…….

I bought two of these lamps from Kirkland's a few months back to go on the chest in the upstairs hallway.


When they arrived the finish on them was a little darker than as pictured.
I lived with them for a while but didn’t love how they looked with the mirror and painted chest.
SO, I painted them!


It isn’t a huge transformation…..I just wanted a lighter look so all it took was a little grey paint.

I love this basket….the lid is a little wonky but I think that just adds to the charm.


This is the view when you reach the top of the stairs……

Love is like a mustard seed;
planted by God
and watered by men.

A new Craig's List find......

I haven't bought any treasures on Craig's List in ages!
However the other day I found this chair....

The finish wasn't quite right and the
 fabric doesn't exactly match anything in my house.
However if I bought the chair that same
day the price was $30!!!

Amazing detail and a great price...can't beat that!
The chair will be receiving a mini face lift so stay tuned!

And.....a little random prettiness......

I picked this Orchid up the other day when I went to the grocery store. 
It is my favorite color and makes me smile every
time I walk into the room!

Hope to see you there!
