Lavender Hydrangeas

It's obvious that I've waited too long to photo these little hydrangeas blooms. I cut them a couple of days ago, but things got busy and then yesterday afternoon the light was wrong, so this morning they're pretty moppy and limp. But what they're lacking in perkiness, hopefully these wonderful shades of lavender will make up.

Share Your Style # 28

Hey There, and Welcome to Share Your Style #28

Can you believe we're winding our way down in this last week of August? Many of us are having a little cool down in the temps so we're really looking forward to Fall. No matter what the season, we all have common decorating dilemmas. One that can really slow down progress is "Styling Shelving". Here's a great post from Michelle from Dandelion Patina, with some great tips to make this a much easier decor task.




Last week I got started on a few "Pre-Fall" projects, which included a paint DIY that I'd been wanting to do for quite awhile; Painting a French Metal Basket with Chalk Paint for my Dining Room table. Then, one of my sweet little sheep decided to jump on the Fall Bandwagon when he declared he was Gettin' His Fall On... And I knocked another project off my list when I finally sewed up a few Grain Sack Fabric Tablerunners. Hope you'll catch up with me this last week.



On with the party, this week's host is Lynn.

My name is Lynn and I am the author of the blog, 
The Vintage Nest, and today I am your host for the

 Share Your Style party

This week on a blog post I explained a little bit about pickling, white washing or liming furniture.  I took you thru the process that I use on a vintage pine cabinet.  I hope you will check out the post here.


As always, it's terribly hard to pick out just a few features for you.  I spent hours looking at all the beautiful posts.  Here are a few that really caught my eye.  Enjoy and if you were featured please grab the button below to post on your blog.  :)

FEATURES

On the blog Bringing French Country Home, Pat shares some late summer blooms  in her garden.   My garden is waning right now, especially with no rain lately, and I enjoyed her post and beautiful photos so much.  Thank you Pat.



Is this the cutest vignette ever??  Michelle of Dandelion Patina, shared how she made a lounger out of hay bales.  How charming for your front porch for Fall, right up on to Thanksgiving.  Thank you Michelle for this charming inspiration.




Sarah gave us the basics of canning.  With summer's bounty coming in in full swing right now, I loved that she shared her knowledge with us.  It's so healthy for you!  Not to mention so pretty sitting on the shelves in your kitchen.  You can find her post on her blog  Must Have Mom.




LZ of Summery Umbrella, shows us how to make the cutest branch ladder.  Perfect for an Autumn  vignette on your front porch or yard, on a screen porch holding some throws for those chilly nights or just as she shows,  which family photos.  It's so cute LZ.




And Briana of the Bargain Briana blog, shared with us how to make this adorable crayon wreath.  Now, wouldn't your kids think you are the best Mom on the block with this on the front door for the first week of school or on a school teacher's class room door?  Thank you Briana for this delightful project.

Grain Sack Fabric Tablerunners

It seems like life continues to be a series of small projects to accomplish, lately. Maybe that's because we've been able to get more things done with organization and unpacking all the million boxes we had, many of which were and still are marked "Decor". eeeck. I try not to overwhelm myself, but plug away at one thing at a time on my long list of "need to do". One of those projects has been getting a couple of tablerunners sewn for the little round table in the kitchen, and then the Dining Room.
