Share Your Style #20

Hi everyone and welcome to Share Your Style #20.
This week I posted Beautiful Linens Make Me Happy.  Check out this post for a $50 discount toward any sheet set from Perfect Linens.

I also shared  A New Addition to our foyer.

My friend Lynn is our host this week and we hope you enjoy the party.

 to the 20th SHARE YOUR STYLE party

 We are grateful to each and everyone one that joins in the party each week.  You have made it such a success! Your inspiration and style is such a pleasure to see. This week, your host is me, Lynn, of The Vintage Nest blog. I have not done much stylin' this week as all my family is coming for a visit for several weeks and I have been preparing for and freezing meals, cleaning, trimming up the yard from the Spring overgrowth, painting, planning a 4th of July party,  and just so looking forward to seeing them.  I thought I would just share with you a simple dish I plan to make that involves all that delicious corn that will soon be coming into season.  Sourced from a little community country paper we receive each month
 It's easy and so yum!!!!

******(cook's note:  1 pint is 1 reg. size canned corn)

When you share your link with us, it will go on 8 blogs each week.....great exposure.

Now on to the party and features from last week.

And speaking of corn and summer recipes, Home is where the Boat Is gives a plethora of yummy summer recipes with gorgeous photographs to go with it.  You are bound to find at least one you want to try.  I know I did.  

We are having a large gathering for 4th of July but I hadn't yet decided on my table setting.  But now I have!  I have a large white tote and will be using our very own SYS hostess, Debra of Common Ground's post for my inspiration.  Thank you Debra,.....that's what this Share Your Style party is all about.....inspiration. :)

So many of us vacation at the seashore for our summer vacation, so wouldn't the kids love these darling beachy cupcakes for a treat one evening?

 Ms. Toody Goo Shoes tells us how to make them on her delightful blog.   

Fleaing France is In the Pink with her post.  So pretty....I wanted to share.  I think I need to start looking for an old bicycle I can paint about you?

Home to Cottage turned a dingy white Craigslist find into a charming beach themed table using "Wonders of the Sea' gift wrap.  Isn't it so cute!!?  


Please add a link back to our party on your individual post,  :)  And if you were highlighted this week, we would love for you to wear this button on your blog.  Can't wait to see your style :) Let the party begin.

A Small Addition To The Foyer

Hi Ya'll.
This is a quick post to show you the newest addition to the foyer. 
 Do you see what was added?

The new coat rack holds the two things I always take to outdoor flea and vintage markets.  The grain sack bag was won in a giveaway about six years ago and it goes with me almost everywhere.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you have a Happy July 4th.

Beautiful Linens Make me Happy

I do love beautiful linens so when Perfect Linens (affiliate link) contacted me about reviewing their sheets I jumped at the chance.  They have also been very generous in offering my readers a $50.00 discount on any of their sheet sets.  See details below.

Perfect Linens sent me the pretty Eternally Drapeful Supple Sheet set to review.  The embroidered powder blue laurel pattern is beautiful and matches perfectly with my other bedding.  We have slept on these sheets for several nights and not only are they beautiful but I also I love the way they feel.  Even my husband commented on how much he liked the sheets.  Funny, because I never thought he even noticed things like this.

For over 25 years Perfect Linens has been selling sheets to the best retailers in the world.  They use state of the art technology to find the most comfortable sheets and are the only retailer that test the feel after they are washed. You don't have to search through many websites to find which weave, thread count or material will work best for you because you can find the sheets perfect for you at this one site.

Perfect linens is offering a special discount for my readers.  Take an additional $50.00 off any sheet set by clicking HERE.  Just use code NoMin50 for the discount.

I was given a set of sets to review however, all opinions are my own and not influenced by the affiliate.  See my full disclosure above.

Thanks for dropping by and have a great week.

Share Your Style Party

Hi everyone and welcome to this weeks Share Your Style party.

My blogging has been a little sparse lately.  Life has been crazy but I promise to be back to blogging shortly.

I did manage to squeeze in a post on spending a special day with dad.  

This weeks party host is Barbara at 21 Rosemary Lane.

Enjoy the party.....

Hi everyone and welcome back to another Share Your Style link up party! This week your party hostess is me, Barbara from 21 Rosemary Lane, and I am absolutely thrilled to be here hosting. Remember there are 7 other blogs also hosting this party so when you link up with one host you will be linking with all 8 of us from the Share Your Style team!!

Myself and our little family are spending a few lovely days relaxing at the beach enjoying the surf and sun, so there was plenty of time for me to sit and peruse through all of your fabulous links from last week's SYS party.

This week I am coming to you

Well summer is off and running and so is the incredible amount of inspiration from all who linked up to SYS #18. There was an amazing number of creative DIY projects, room makeovers, recipes, fun ideas and much more from last week's party, that I really had a tough time narrowing down just what to highlight. So without further ado, here are a few links I hope you will enjoy checking out!

From Beyond the Portico Sheila shared some tips on how she created this darling throw pillow for her screened in porch.

The Curator's Collection revived two gorgeous 1920's chairs with MMS Milk paint and a grain sack striped upholstered seat cover for a romantic shabby look.

 Another chair makeover came from A Stroll Thru Life. Marty was brave enough to remove the rush seats from two of her beautiful 1972 dining room chairs and replaced them with stunning new seat cushions. She gives a wonderful step by step tutorial on just how to achieve this look.

Michele from The Joyful Home shared her sister's stylish formal living room of which she helped to decorate with some of these beautiful elements.

 Back Porch Musings enjoyed a delicious scoop of French vanilla ice cream with a fresh strawberry and some milk chocolate pretzel bark, all in a pretty yard sale glass. Now how simple yet elegant does that look?

And finally Julie from A Little Farmstead shared the most adorable old fashion baseball themed birthday party for her 6 year old son.

Complete with hot dogs, Coca-Cola, the cutest party favors you ever saw, a rousing game of baseball and even a Babe Ruth cardboard cut-out to help welcome guests to the party.

If your link was featured this week please make sure to take our "Featured My Style" button to proudly display on your blog.

Now on with this week's party. Please remember to have a link back to one of our 8 hosts and to be a bit of a social butterfly by visiting some of the other party goers!

A Special Day With Dad

I cherish every moment with my dad and we had a great Fathers Day together.
He enjoyed his favorite chocolate cake and seemed to love his gifts.
Every girl should be as lucky as I am to have a father like him.
Take care,
