::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!

*Don't forget that if you join the party and add a link back to me within your post, you'll get an extra automatic entry in this week's From You Flowers Giveaway. Someone's going to win a gorgeous floral arrangement!

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

~The House of Fifty Fall Issue is out. Whether you’re reading an article on entertaining or current trends in window treatments, founding editor Janell Beals put together a beautiful and informative issue.

~Love a good household tip. Anna showed readers how to clean a washing machine. (via Somewhat Simple)

~Finally, a use for that pile of old magazines…Jennifer will show you how to make recycled gift bows at Hope Studios.
~A thoughtful and well-written article on Masculine Design-Beyond the Man Cave from Courtney Out Loud (via Centsational Girl)

~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!

Miss Natalie is going to be in another Fashion Show this weekend, and she's looking forward to walking the runway. Both girls are planning some pool time, which I'm always up for. I'm hoping to finish up Elin Hildebrand's The Island...thanks to sweet Paula from Sweet Pea for sending her copy my way!

What are you up to this weekend?

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