Now onto our fabulous features from last week!

We think these slip covered stools from The Creative Imperative are so wonderfully chic and feminine.
And we cracked up over the names they were given! We are suckers for Little House on the Prairie references and this one was spot on!

Kim from La Belle Epoque Home created some absolutely lovely Feed Sack Message Boards which were inspired by some she saw in a catalog. She showed a plethora of ways to use them and we think they are so beautiful we wouldn’t want to actually put any messages on them! Who would want to cover that pretty fabric up with “don’t forget to buy milk”?!

Start at Home shared a gorgeous Bathroom Renovation and we just love that vanity! Wait until you see the “Before” from this one. You won’t believe the transformation!
Our friend Michell of Girl In Air is working on a kitchen remodel in their new home! She’s been making over their kitchen cabinets with amazing results! Michell shares how they added crown molding to the existing cabinets with great results! Visit Girl In Air to see the before and after!

Our Friday Party partner in crime Alison from Stuff and Nonsense, shared a lovely post on Writing in the Margins. It is beautifully written…and challenges us to ask ourselves about the “road map” we’re leaving for our children.

Ashley from It’s Rustic Living created this beautiful Scripture Chair! The color is just lovely, the scripture beautiful and this chair is even for sale! Visit Ashley to see the transformation.

Late Young Family showed us how to make this fabulous rope swirl headband!  She includes a full tutorial so you can make one as well…or maybe we can just get her to make one for us! Winking smile

    Hi ladies… Thank you do much for the mention… I just linked up the Fabulous 50s and I am trying to figure out how to add the link on my WP with my iPhone 😉 off to email you;)

  2. says

    Thanks for hosting and a special thank you for the feature. You two are wonderful. I got a Red Bird original watercolor for my mom for Christmas. It was actually a little red bird in the snow. She loved it. Love that shop. Hope you both have a great weekend!

  3. says

    Some great sponsors here…and I visited some of your featured bloggers. Love the Nellie 1&2 stools. She did a great job on them. Bathroom makeover is great, too. For some reason…almost ALL of the links tonight are showing up with the big red X on them…and no picture. HATE THAT! Hope you have a great weekend- xo Diana

      I’m sorry the links are wonky for you Diana, I’m seeing them okay right now but if it keeps acting up let us know and we’ll try and get to figure out what’s wrong. Thanks for stopping by!

    Vanessa and Heather…..I have tried on two different posts (A Tour of Karens Cozy Cottage and French CoqAuVin) to link up tonight and for some reason they don’t come up on your linky party. Have I done something wrong? I tried a 2nd time with the French Coq Au Vin and it still didn’t come up. I don’t know what to do. I LOVE to participate with you gals. Have I offended someone or something? Thanks for your help.


    • says

      Hi Nann! I think the party was just acting up for you, must have gotten a little wild and crazy. 😉 I can see your post. I’ve emailed you but wanted to reply here as well. And no worries, you could NEVER offend us!

    Those are some awesome features. That bathroom makeover is gorgeous. I am in love with that vanity as well. Thanks for hosting. Have a great weekend.

  6. says

    I’m so sorry. I had trouble linking up today and ended up linking up 4x. Please accept my apologies. I love the slip covered stools. They are amazingly elegant.

  7. says

    When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added-
    checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I recieve 4 emails
    with the same comment. There has to be an easy method you can remove
    me from that service? Thanks!

    Hi there! This post could not be written any better! Reading this post reminds
    me of my old room mate! He always kept chatting about this.
    I will forward this write-up to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read.
    Thanks for sharing!
