::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

~This DIY Pull-Out Pantry is a result of some hard work and a few margaritas. See how Katie pulled it off at On the Banks of Squaw Creek

~Jen’s beautifully organized laundry room will make you swoon with its bins, baskets, bright colors.

~One of the recent stops on Lindsey's home tour was her girls' bedroom: soft and feminine without being over-the-top girlie, and lots of unique storage options.

~Sarah added some texture to her kitchen with a window mistreatment from an unusual source: 1960s blinds. See how she updated her space using outdated materials at Three Boys.

~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!

We'll be taking advantage of the tax free school shopping in Virginia this weekend. The girls need a few outfits, and I'm never one to turn down shopping! Natalie's going to be in another Fashion Show next weekend, so we have to go in to look over the wardrobe choices as well. So much fun to be a fashionista! {wink}

What are you up to this weekend?

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