Share Your Style #28

I hope you are having a good week. It's hard to believe it is almost September. I am ready for cooler temperatures. How about you?
Be sure to check out my recent posts at Uptown Acorn. I am in love with these oyster shell paintings.



This week's party host is Lynn, author of the blog, The Vintage Nest.


 Welcome! ~~~~~  Share your link on one blog and it will also be on seven others....great exposure for your blog and inspiration.   We love that you are here and delight in all that you SHARE with us.   We hope that you will visit other blogger post.  You may find a new recipe that you just have to try, a new bloggy friend,  a project to do this week, or inspiration for an Autumn vignette.  And please add a link back to the party on your post.  :)




This week on a blog post I explained a little bit about pickling, white washing or liming furniture.  I took you thru the process that I use on a vintage pine cabinet.  I hope you will check out the post here.


As always, it's terribly hard to pick out just a few features for you.  I spent hours looking at all the beautiful posts.  Here are a few that really caught my eye.  Enjoy and if you were featured please grab the button below to post on your blog.  :)

FEATURES

On the blog Bringing French Country Home, Pat shares some late summer blooms  in her garden.   My garden is waning right now, especially with no rain lately, and I enjoyed her post and beautiful photos so much.  Thank you Pat.



Is this the cutest vignette ever??  Michelle of Dandelion Patina, shared how she made a lounger out of hay bales.  How charming for your front porch for Fall, right up on to Thanksgiving.  Thank you Michelle for this charming inspiration.




Sarah gave us the basics of canning.  With summer's bounty coming in in full swing right now, I loved that she shared her knowledge with us.  It's so healthy for you!  Not to mention so pretty sitting on the shelves in your kitchen.  You can find her post on her blog  Must Have Mom.




LZ of Summery Umbrella, shows us how to make the cutest branch ladder.  Perfect for an Autumn  vignette on your front porch or yard, on a screen porch holding some throws for those chilly nights or just as she shows,  which family photos.  It's so cute LZ.




And Briana of the Bargain Briana blog, shared with us how to make this adorable crayon wreath.  Now, wouldn't your kids think you are the best Mom on the block with this on the front door for the first week of school or on a school teacher's class room door?  Thank you Briana for this delightful project.

Original Oyster Art

Recently, I added a couple of handpainted 6" x 6" oyster paintings to my decor. I love the fluidity and the texture of each work of art. The gray background and blue-green patina-like sides are stunning, and the gold leaf adds elegance to the paintings.

"Old" Photos

My sister has been cleaning her present home and packing to move into a condo soon. Their home sold, and the new one will not be move-in ready until December.

Pappy, Me-Me, Aunt Jane (Sugar), Me, Colette, cousin Laurie


She has been going through old photos and posting them on facebook. Payback is a *#@!^, sis!

I loved my maternal grandparents which were called Me-Me and Pappy so much. I used to sleep at their home every Saturday night for as long as I remember. Both are long gone, but I love to look at the photos when we were younger.

I love looking down memory lane.
