Share Your Style Party #75...my features




Welcome to Share Your Style #75.  Can you believe how fast the summer has gone by?  How come January and February don't go that fast?  But each and every week, we are delighted to have you here and share all your wonderful inspirational posts with us.  Remember there are five of us that co-host this Link Party so your posts go far and wide.  This week I am the host of the party, Lynn, owner of the The Vintage Nest blog.  I have picked out  a few of your blog post that really caught my eye and are the features this week. 





Shannon,  of the blog Belle Bleu Interiors, shares how she was able to obtain a French Pastry table, once belonging to Charles Faudree; a famous interior designer, known for his fondness of all things French.  What a lucky lady.



Mary of  "Orphans With Makeup" , did an outstanding make-over on an old top bookshelf.  It truly is gorgeous and a must see.




Decor to Adore blog is owned by Laura.  She shows us how to make the cutest sailboat pillow.  "summertime, summertime, sum, sum, summertime".  Remember that song?  That's immediately what came to mind when I saw her project.




Heidi, of the blog Life with Heidi, has a cool, simple, no cook dinner- Ranch seafood dinner or lunch to share with us.  Sounds good to me!  




My last feature today caught my eye because it's so  happy and so colorful, that it just screams summer......  Pam, of Every Day Living shares with us a tablescape in her summer garden.





Thank you for visiting our Share Your Style party today.  I do hope you will visit the features and say hi, and visit others too, for fabulous recipes, inspirational posts and fantastic make-overs.   If you were featured today, please grab our button and proudly display it on your blog.

Inspirational Signs & SYS Party #74

Hi, it's Lynn and I appreciate you joining our Share Your Style link party.  Every week I can't wait to see all the wonderful inspiration. 
This week my grand-children have been visiting from Chicago, so all my time has been spent with them and their parents.  What a great time we are having.  I have even had the girls helping me with some items for my booth space.  Re-using old and painted barn wood, we made inspirational quote signs.  These sold out quickly last time I made them and I was anxious to make more and with the girl's help we made quick work of about 15 signs.

Now on to the party.  Barbara of 21 Rosemary Lane is your party host this week.



Hello and welcome to another inspiring Share Your Style link party. This week it is me,  Barbara from the blog 21 Rosemary Lane, back as your party host!



We are all thrilled your are here. Remember when you link ups to SYS your awesome creativity will be seen on all five of our blogs!

Summer is here and the kiddos have been out of school a full 4 weeks now, so let me share with you the 21 Rosemary Lane posts of the last month. 


I sure hope you have a chance to stop on by and visit my little corner of blogland...the door is always open!!

And now it is on to...
First up is a farm house styled bedroom from the blog Hoosier Homemade. And yes yes yes...ship lap on the walls! Love it!!


Speaking of farm house style, the next feature is from Kingsbury Brook Farm who linked up a post featuring a few totally minimalistic, yet absolutely lovely farmhouse vignettes. Aren't those peonies in the ironstone pitcher simply gorgeous? What else do you really need right?


Stephanie over at Garden Therapy shared her knowledge of how to harvest and dry fresh English lavender. (And even shared a few lavender craft ideas too!)


Stacy from the blog Not Just a Housewife dropped off a recipe for an Easy Creme Brulee! One of my most favorite desserts in the whole world!


So if I am going to feature a decadent dessert like Stacy's, then I must make sure to counter with a totally healthy treat. This tasty looking "post workout berry smoothie" is from Jordyn who pens the blog Almost Supermom

Make-over on Antique Cedar Chest

Wanted to share with you today a re-do I did on an antique Victorian blanket chest or hope chest.  Lined with cedar and still has its original tags and skeleton key.  I bought this at auction and, like a lot of items I buy at auction, I give it a quick look-over and then threw up my hand for a bid.  Then, when I get it home find some serious flaws.  This particular old girl had a number of problems.....as in, missing veneer and some gouges.  But perservering, I fixed her up and got her ready for a new paint job.  Using Annie Sloan chalk paint, I painted the piece in Old White and a valspar paint in Sea Air, a pretty aqua.  A coat of clear wax, a slight white washing and another gentle coat of dark wax and she was finished.   I love how the paint brings out the pretty details in the medallion and decorative overlays.    This piece will be going to my booth space at The Lazy Daisy shop in Midlothian, Va.  :)  Miss you all!
