Paint Projects, Food, Fashion, Outdoor Decorating, Gardening, Summer Activities…you name it we’ve got it!
Each days’ links will connect with the next for one HUGE LINK PARTY! And to top it all off there will be a fabulous giveaway for each theme!

We’d love it if you’d also share the party announcement on your Facebook Pages and Twitter streams!
So, get to work on those SUMMER PROJECTS and get ready to join us for the first ever
BLOGGER BLOCK PARTY!!
And now, onto the Features! Once again, it feels almost physically painful to narrow it down and only highlight just a few of the amazing things that were linked up.
But, in the spirit of welcoming summer and it’s warm, lazy days, we want to start things off by sharing 2 amazing Porch Transformations.
First up is Theresa from Momma T’s Place who shared her charmingly delightful porch which is just chock full of character and warmth.
Don’t you just love all of the colors? It reminds of us rainbow sherbet and everything about it says, “come and stay awhile”. Be sure to note the blue on the ceiling!
There are so many more details to see, so be sure and pay Theresa a visit!
Next up is this jaw-dropping porch shared with us by Kathy from All About Vignettes.
No. That isn’t her Inspiration Photo. That is HER porch.
Yep. We think it is pretty spectacular too!
Kathy has gone on to share more of how she transformed this space including wonderful tutorials on how to get those columns and that mirror to look so gorgeous. As well, she recently revealed how she gave that factory cart turned coffee table, a lime washed effect. This is one talented lady!
Up next we are headed inside from the summer heat to rest for awhile in
Gina from GinaCeramic’s Guest Cottage
We are headed over Gina to stay awhile in your fabulous guest cottage!
We had two most unusual recipes shared with us last week, which also helped to put us in a “Summery” mood!
First is an incredible tutorial for making Violet Syrup. You read that right!
Jenn from Frugal Upstate showed us how to make this yummy sounding AND looking treat.
And then we have this recipe for Elderflower Cordial from the Modern Country Lady.
Somehow we can’t type that without thinking of Anne of Green Gables and her traumatic encounter with Raspberry Cordial! But, you can bet that this recipe will not have any such consequences.
In fact, we think that this would help you MAKE even more friends!
Doesn’t that picture look just so divine? We felt like we had just been to an English Garden Party!
And finally, Keri from Pressed Down, Shaken Together showed us how to make these darling
Paper and Twine Seashells. Aren’t they adorable?
So, can you tell we have Summer on the brain or what?
We know we aren’t alone in that sentiment!
