::LINKY LOVE AND WHAT I HAVE BEEN READING::

Hi All!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend in your little corner of the world.  We did.  After a week of thunderstorms, rain and tornadoes we are finally enjoying some beautiful weather. 

In between all the sewing, working and taking care of my family I find time to check out other blogs.  I wanted to share a few with you today that  have either done some room redos or shared a really cool project that I thought you all might be interested in.

I always enjoy a good room makeover.  Especially when the after photos are so dramatically different than the befores.  You all have to hop on over to http://beauxrevesamore.blogspot.com/2012/03/guest-room-reveal.html    She redid her guest room and it is just stunning.  The after photos have her room, light, fresh and welcoming.  She did many a project in this room for the reveal.  My favorite is the bedding.


The next project I loved was this lovely knockoff linen napkin by Mary Beth from http://blog.annapolis-online.com/  I say knockoff because while they look like linen napkins, Mary Beth shares that it's not actually linen, but linen look fabric instead.  I have shared before that earlier this year we stopped purchasing paper napkins and use cloth napkins daily for each meal.  Every meal should be special.  Why wait to bring out the cloth napkins just for company?  Use them everyday and make every meal with your family a four star dining experience.

Isn't it lovely?   Mary Beth not only shares a step-by-step tutorial on how to make these, she also shared how she did that lovely stitching on there to bump up the quality of them.  Writing tutorials with beautiful step-by-step photos takes time and I sure do appreciate Mary Beth taking the time to share how she makes her cloth napkins with us.  Here is the link for her tutorial:

I will be back later in the week to hopefully share a recipe with you.  We'll see if it turns out.  If it does, I will be sure to blog about it.

Have a blessed day!

Hi Cheryl! I would love to meet up with you. I'm in Baton Rouge at least once every week. My huband works in BR so we try and "do" lunch sometime. Is our weather not the bomb right now?! Love it!
