Share Your Style Party #51 ~ A welcome

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

How to Make Vintage Zinc Lid Coasters

Hey there....long time no see and I miss you all.  :) Today I would like to share a quick (kind of)  ; )   project that's very charming and useful. Along with the vintage and antique pieces I hunt for for my retail spaces, I also try to include unique hand crafted pieces also. I  recently picked up quite a few vintage zinc lids and then saw an idea I thought I could expand on.  Of course, you could use new canning lids but the old zinc lids have so much character and patina. 



Supplies you will need are:

  • a roll of fine grain cork
  • scissors
  • your lids
  • hot glue gun
  • stamp (s)
  • water proof ink pad
  • twine (optional)
I think my lids must have been in a barn back in the far corner for many, many years as they needed a thorough scouring.   Using one of the lids, trace the lid bottom on your cork.  This gets pretty tricky as the roll of cork tends to want to ..... well.....roll up and try your patience.  And be very careful as the cork also tears easily.  The smoother side of the cork is the side you want to have face up when you cut. 



I used my tried and true nest stamp for this project but you could choose whatever you like.  Deer, birds, roosters are so popular right now or for a personalized gift use a monogram.  I stamped my cork circle, then ran a ring of hot glue around the inside edge of the lid and quickly inserted the cork.



And voila, there you have it.  I tied mine with rustic twine for presentation and will sell in the shop. 



Don't forget the Share Your Style Party this week.  Opens at 7 pm. est, Wednesday evening.  There is so much inspiration there, you will love it.  I really am going to try and post more often on the blog.  Life has been so busy this past year but I miss you all so much xo

SYS Party #50 ~ Digging Out

Welcome to the 50th Share Your Style party. Hope all made it out of the East coast weather woes this past week. We fared pretty well except for the cars being stuck until today, right where they were parked last Thursday evening. I was fearful we would lose power with the high winds and sleet combined with the snow but we didn't and for that I was so grateful. So now I can say, the snow was beautiful. But the dig out has begun...Here is my beloved working on the front walk. The good thing was, with being at home for so many days, I got two pieces of furniture up-cycled for the shop, made some adorable items for Easter and cleaned up my work room (at least better than it was). Now I feel like I have a little breathing room and I can work better that way. Do you feel that way too? okay...onto our Share Your Style party. Barbara of Rosemary Lane is your host this week. Have a sunny weekend and I can't wait to see all your inspiration. xoxo



Hi everyone and welcome back to another Share Your Style Link Party. This one is number 50 and I am your host this week Barbara from 21 Rosemary Lane.



Over the past few weeks I shared with you all some of
the updates going on in our Kitchen. 

First there was the makeover of a ReStore hutch I purchased last spring. Right before the holidays I painted her black and then for the winter she was dressed in classic black and white.

,SS
Another ReStore Score was this simple iron chandy I picked up for only $15. Had to keep my fingers crossed the hard wire was still working. 


And finally for just under $10 I found these wonderfully worn Farmhouse style items at various thrift shops.


Now let's get on to this week's features!


The first link which caught my eye is from Pat over at the blog French Country Style From the Foot of the RockiesShe found this wonderful primitive table that simply stole her breath away. I can see why as I just love its worn features.



The next link I am featuring had me a the first picture. Kristen from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia shared her newly remodeled kitchen. It was a process almost two years in the making, but I think it was totally worth the wait! 


Another kitchen redo I loved was actually a kitchen cabinet and island makeover. Chelsea from Two Twenty One reused her existing old oak cabinets and transformed them into a true thing of beauty! (Psst that is a bookshelf added to the end of the island!)


And talk about transformations, I couldn't get over this one from Julie over at The Little Farmstead who was brave enough to paint...yes paint her piano! I have a piano I've been seriously thinking about painting and I think Julie has finally given me the courage to do so!!!


Angelina from the blog Peonies and Orange Blossoms shared her thoughts on a Barbour Bednell coat she received for Christmas. After reading her review of this beautiful outerwear I so want one of these fabulously designed coats.



And rounding out this week's picks are these super yummy looking strawberry Jam Cupcakes from Bunny over at Bunny's Warm Oven.


Thank you to everyone who linked up to last week's party.
