Earlier this year I made some changes to the weekly link party.
First I invited some new co-hosts to join us as a way of expanding the party and adding a new dimension to it. They came from slightly different décor styles, so we broadened the party linking options and changed direction somewhat to incorporate a larger audience.
Sadly, these changes didn’t bode well with some of our linkers, as the party moved away from what we originally built. Numbers dropped off and many of our old shabbilicious linkers stopped linking up. Over the past week the co-hosts and I discussed options and changes… and ultimately we decided that the party should go back to its original form.
So, today I thank Jeanette, Julie, Robin and Stacy, not only for their commitment to Shabbilicious Friday over the past few months, but for also unselfishly bowing out and allowing the party to revert back to its original style. They are all amazing bloggers and I hope you’ll continue to visit their fabulous blogs.
This is the place we come to each week to share all that is
This includes anything pretty like romantic cottage, shabby chic, vintage, farmhouse, transformations, decorating & DIY, room reveals, vintage finds, French inspired loveliness, yummy recipes
. . . or anything else that will make our shabby hearts sing!
I adore Diana’s amazing creativity at Dreams Factory. This week she offered a tutorial for building a shabby chic easel and a gorgeous free French graphic.
Over on Cottage Fix this week, Sally is feeling all French inspired and musing… “I’m so drawn to French style lately, drippy crystal chandeliers, soft muted colors, and floor to ceiling drapes. I’m daydreaming of strolling down a quaint cobblestone street lined with vegetable markets, fresh flowers, and the sweet smell of baguettes wafting through the warm air.”
Doesn’t that just set the scene for a beautiful post about blooming hydrangeas!
The lovely Karen from Karen’s Up On The Hill shared an easy to follow tutorial on ‘How to Age a Garden Urn with Chalk Paint’. Don’t they look fabulous on her mantel!
I think Annie Sloan Duck Egg was the perfect colour choice for Kimberley’s dresser make-over at Seaside Ave.
What an amazing result for a $6 Goodwill find!
And this seems a beautiful way to round off the week…
Pamela shared this lovely inspirational quote as a free printable at
