FEATHERED NEST FRIDAY


I haven't gotten much done this week at all
I ended up with my daughters bug-
(guess that explains how tired I was on Saturday at the antique faire)
So just sharing some inspirations this week.


I am planning a little party in a couple weeks
and so pulled out one of my favorite entertaining books
to thumb through.


ENTERTAINING WITH SOUTHERN STYLE
This is an older book that I have had for awhile
but they always have great ideas for entertaining.

Such a gorgeous mantel-
makes me think of
Confessions of a Plate Addict
:)


and I LOVE this wreath!!

So gorgeous!!

Also, I will be having a giveaway coming up!!
It's super exciting- so stay tuned!!
:)
Onto last weeks party review!

  29. Oh, I am sorry to hear that you are feeling so awful! I hope you feel much better very soon. We have some of that going on around here, too, which surprised me. Usually it is at least October before these cold/flu bugs come around...

    Thank you for hosting such a fun party each Friday. And thank you also {so very much} for featuring the linen garland. That was so sweet of you! :)

    I hope you have a good Friday, and feel better! :)

    Blessings,

  36. Hi Courtney,
    I hate it when a bug gets you down and you don't feel like doing a thing. Hope you feel better soon. I especially love browsing some of my older books this time of year. I have some that I never tire of.

  41. Hi Courtney- I have some good news for you - you have been awarded the Versatile Blogger Award! I so enjoy your blog. YOU deserve it. You can find out more by going to: http://projectqueen.org/category/ramblings/the-versatile-blogger-award. Have a great day!

  42. I just love your post I saw in my google reader but couldn't find when I came over to your blog - your bathroom redo is amazing!!! I love everything about it, from the gorgeous wallpaper to the open armoire, and the little chest between the pedestal sinks.

    What's most amazing, though, is your ability to see the potential in the place - those before pictures were definitely hideous!

    Your home is inspiring!

    Have a wonderful Monday!
