Share Your Style #29

Hello, y'all!

Welcome to the 29th Share Your Style Party. I hope you join us.

  This is a party where you can share the projects you're working on, great tasting recipes, d├ęcor inspiration and so much more.  If you blogged about it, we want to see it!



Your host this week is Kelly, and she blogs at The Essence of Home. 


When you share your inspiration with this party, you are also sharing it with all of these lovely bloggers too!




I have enjoyed looking at what was shared last week and I picked out a few of my favorites.

Simply Vintageous shared a home tour of a home for sale in MA.  It is beautiful in every way!  Too bad it's not in my budget though.



Ramblings of a Southern Girl shared how to make the cutest pumpkins using doorknobs for the stems!  I've never seen that done before, but they are so charming.



Super Mommy Club shared some creative camping recipes to feed the family.  Since Fall is just around the corner, I know a lot of us will probably go camping.  These recipes would be great to try!


Gwen Moss Blog shared her latest kitchen update.  Her kitchen is so pretty with the soft colors she has chosen.  Check out her pretty new table!


If you were featured, please feel free to post this button on your blog.



Now, I can't wait to see what you have to share with us this week!

Streetcar Themed Papers {Scriptura}

I'm obsessed with the great new papers from Magazine Street fave Scriptura.




I have always had an issue with this niche in the breakfast room. The previous owners had a TV in that spot....no way!!!! Recently, I measured and had the pieces laminated at Kinko's for better durability. Glue dots hold the paper in place.

Since the streetcar is so iconic here in New Orleans, the streetcar themed paper fills the spot out perfectly. I use the niche to hold a favorite punch bowl and tray.










I now think I will have to paint the top part of the niche black too.




I am happy to have used the three newest papers exclusive to Scriptura.

Cocktails.




Southern motifs.




Streetcars.



See how I used the cocktail-inspired papers and the Southern motif papers.


Streetcar papers, y'all!

Thank You Notes with a Science Twist {etsy}

Who else like me is addicted to etsy? I have ordered so many creative things since its inception. There are so many delightful and creative folks out there in etsyland.

I have been wanted personalized thank you notes to use at school. Because I teach at a very affluent school, gifts come at various points in the year. I envisioned thank yous with a science twist, and I set out on etsy to find the perfect card.




I contacted Jessica at the Bird + the Beard for a custom order, and she could not have been more accommodating. I also appreciated how fast she worked and how quickly I received the order.








I have already put them to good use. I received a great chapeau from a student's travels to Europe this summer (I did say most were affluent.). The hat from Barcelona is awesome and hangs from our classroom skeleton. 






Another student gifted me with two delicious cupcakes.
