Share Your Style #20

Hi there friends...
I can't believe this is already week 20 of Share Your Style!! 
Feels like we just started this party yesterday!
This weeks host is Lynn from 
The Vintage Nest Blog
 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!!

Outdoor project reveal~A look around the yard

 Hi there friends...
Remember I mentioned we had a project going on outside...
Well today I'll be giving you a little tour around the outside of our home and show you just what we've been up to!
I was so tired of always having to pick up the rocks and mulch that landed in the grass after our lawn had been cut and trimmed...
so we decided to have stone edging installed all around our garden beds...lots and lots of stone!
We love the finished look it gave our garden areas!
 Yucca plant in full bloom.

The stone edging gives the yard a neat and finished look.

Coming up the side of the house to the front...sorry I cut the side view off a little...didn't want to take away from the prettiness with showing the pool equipment.

 Looking at the opposite side towards our neighbors house.
I love the look of fresh mulch! 
This area took 6 yards of mulch...I spread it all myself...good thing I had a full bottle of advil on hand LOL!
 I planted this purple catmint last year all along the edge and it came back in abundance!
 This is the top of that side garden...
I call it my wooded area. 
One of the things I love about our development is that the builders left quite a few mature trees around when they began building in here 18 years ago.

Let's move down to the back yard now...
We had our stone wall rebuilt with concrete...
and I planted 5 hot pink knock-out roses along the edge for color.  
Aren't they pretty!!

 Looking out my bedroom window.
Thanks for walking around with me I hope you enjoyed the tour!

Share Your Style #19

 Hi there friends...
Welcome to another Share Your Style!
This weeks host is Barbara from 

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 fashioned 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!

New pillows for the Master Bedroom

 Hi there friends...
I hope all the amazing dads out there had a wonderful Father's Day yesterday!
My hubby got spoiled...
which he so deserves 100x over!
Well friend Linda worked her magic for me again! 
She made me these pretty pillow shames with ruffles and the two long toile pillow covers.
I bought the small grain sack pillow at the 
Country Living Fair a few weeks ago from 
French Laundry Home.
 Linda also made me this long topper for my round table...I like how the light linen fabric softened the look of the burlap skirt.

Love this grain sack looking throw at the foot of our bed...I ordered it online from Wayfair a few months ago.

My summer look for our master bedroom!
Thanks so much for stopping by...
Have a super week!
