::Weekend Bloggy Reading:: Link up!

It's Friday, lovelies! Please take the time to read my simple guidelines for joining the party here before you link up this week. Thanks!
{What do you have planned for the weekend?}
I have a few errands to run today and I'd really love to get my thrift on this weekend to begin the hunt for a media console, but I don't know if that's doable. T always works Labor Day, so it will be just another day around here. I really and truly hope you have something more exciting planned!

Here are a few of my favorite posts from around Blogland this week:

~Amanda worked on a Laundry Room Mini-Makeover using what she had on hand.

~Stephanie wrote about The Shape of a Mother and really touched my heart. Also some great links in that post!

~Jen had me thinking of some fun new ways to decorate for Halloween with her Spooky Subway Art.

~Have you noticed that you have too much Stuff? Sarah did. And she shared all about it this week in a very thought-provoking post. I know I have pretty much stopped shopping yard sales and thrift stores unless there is something specific I am looking for. It makes a difference!

~Danielle completed a stunning Pantry Makeover. With Mod Podge!

~And me? On Monday, I showed you My Magical Blogging Space and on Tuesday I presented a frame that I gave a Girlie Mod Podge Makeover. On Wednesday, I spilled the beans about the Flip Flop Party That Didn't Flop. And if you love fabric and amazing vintage buttons, you must click over and enter The Cat's Paw Giveaway. We're all in love with Barbara's wares!
Now it's your turn to link up!

Disclaimer: I would love to have you join me for a little linky party this week, but I ask you include a link OR my party button in your post. One or the other. Or both. Whatever you prefer. The button code is below if you want it. But please adhere to basic blogging etiquette and link back to me within your post. I've been blogging for awhile now, and I've learned that blog party hostesses always appreciate it when a participant joins in the fun in a gracious way. Blog parties are fun and great for making new friends and Followers, but they should be beneficial on both ends. My blog is small. My parties are small. So I really do rely on those link-backs to help spread the word. Thanks for understanding! Stepping off my soapbox now....Happy to have you here!

  13. Thanks for hosting, Amanda! I emailed you about the shutters, but yes, they most certainly are vinyl. ;)

    Have a great holiday weekend,
    Ann Marie

  14. Thanks for hosting the party! I love that pantry and will definitely have to check out the link for the "how to."

    I hope you have some luck on your console search. I'm like you with the thrifting, I won't just buy and buy, it's got to be something that I really want and need.
