Patriotic Link Party

Hi Everyone,
 welcome to the Patriotic Party!

I've always loved to decorate for the July 4th Holiday. Whether it's just adding a few flags to garden picked flowers, setting a red, white, and blue table for an outside dinner, or decking my dress form in Patriotic fashion. Here are a few photos and links from my last few years' posts on celebrating the 4th.

Share Your Style #20

I know everyone is having a super busy week with the 4th coming up this weekend,
 so thanks so much for coming by and sharing all your "Style" with us this week.

I'm not a great gardener, so I really love seeing how you all do it.
Cathy from the 1929 Charmer Cottage is a Jill of many trades,
and she does them all so beautifully.
 Please go by her wonderful blog and visit her amazing
Summer Cottage Garden

This last week I decided it was time for more space and less "table", so I downsized to my little round oak table which I gave a new paint transformation. Then I shared my Kitchen Sitting Area dressed in red, white, and blue for a Patriotic Party.

Hope you'll come by Thursday Evening at 6:00 Central 
and join in for a fun Patriotic Linky Party!
Lynn is our host this week:

 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.

More from the Patriotic Sitting Room

Here's the rest of the pics from my little Kitchen Sitting Room, 
all dressed up for the
  July 4th Holiday.

Gotta have some red geraniums and a flag.

I found my old lunch boxes recently.
 How about a little red plaid and blue?

Since it's Summer, the roosters wanted to come out to play.

Mr. Mouton is back in his place of honor...
the old door.

...and has a little French Country fruit to make him happy.

I'm lovin' my new little table.
so much more room for decorating...
