::Weekend Bloggy Reading:: Link Up!

Welcome to Weekend Bloggy Reading. I hope you'll link up your best post of the week today, and maybe leave me some comment love!

All kinds of posts are welcome--recipes, crafts, funny stories, home decor, etc.; but please do not link to Etsy shops, businesses, items for sale, etc. (I have a Sponsors section, if you'd like to Advertise with me.)

Here are a few of my faves from this week:

sources listed below

~Lindsay mastered her master bedroom with a thrift store dresser makeover. Her efforts with paint will make you reevaluate those pieces that don’t look salvageable at first glance.

~This DIY Lantern from Sassy Sanctuary would be a great addition to a summer vignette. Krystal used picture frames to complete this project!

~I'm loving Sasha’s DIY beadboard dishwasher.

~Another fab makeover! Jennifer’s summer porch looks like a great spot to curl up with a fancy drink and a good book.

~Speaking of fancy drinks, doesn’t Alison’s watermelon lemonade look delicious?

~And Me? This week featured:

Time to link up your best post of the week (please take the time to include a link-back or my party button and visit some of the other participants!)

Here's the button code if you'd prefer to use that rather than a link-back:
Weekend Bloggy Reading

Party is open until 10 pm (ET) on Sunday night.

Remember that blog parties work best when bloggers participate, so if you have a chance to visit a few of the other links, you might find a new friend or two!

I'm just giddy today because tomorrow marks the start of our big beach trip! (Attention, robbers! T will be home, so unless you'd like to meet the business end of a shotgun, I don't suggest you head this way, mkay?)

I suffer seriously from FOPS (Flagrant Overpacking Syndrome), so as you read this, I am frantically trying decide exactly how many pairs of shoes I will need.

I'm not certain when/how/if I'll have internet access. I have some posts planned for while I am away, and I'll keep Weekend Bloggy Reading up this weekend and run it next weekend too so you can showcase your work. Please know that if you comment or link up, I may not be able to return the favor this time around.

What are you up to this weekend?

I'll be back tomorrow with some highlights from Weekend Bloggy Reading!

I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
