FEATHERED NEST FRIDAY ~ HAPPY NEW YEAR!!


It's a crazy busy time of year and the blogs are fairly quiet but
I am putting up Feathered Nest Friday early for any of you who would like to join in
and share and be inspired
The theme around blogland is
Year in Review!

So this week feel free to link up
anything and everything related to feathering your nest
& also your year in review posts if you have done them!

Sharing just a few photos of the beautiful peonies I found at Raleys.
I love their pretty ruffly pink against the weathered gray of the old bistro chairs
and the elegant curves of the little French clock.

I also shared a post of Favorite Before & Afters
HERE if you would like
to see what French Country Cottage has been up to this past year!

Link away and have a Happy and safe New Years Eve!!

At last weeks party:

Classic.Casual.Home shared a Christmas brunch

Cecilia Rosslee shared her Christmas charm

Johnny in a dress shared this darling acorn tree

Turnstyle Vogue shared a beautiful table setting

Elizabeth and Co shared these charming candles
Welcome to new partygoers and welcome back and
and thank you to all my party animal friends
for taking the time to come over and share your wonderful
links each week!
:)

PLEASE SHARE
decorating, flea finds, designs, transformations
crafts, table settings, etc.
ANYTHING related to feathering your nest!

**PLEASE BE A GRACIOUSFEATHERED NEST FRIDAY GUEST**
Make sure you post a button or a link back to the party on your post.

I WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO BECOME A FRIEND/FOLLOWER

  23. Dear Courtney, thank you for hosting your awesome party this past year and looking forward to many more in 2012. I don't have any beautiful pink peonies but I did pick some of my neighbor's pink camillas. They are so delicate and pretty. Normally the cold gets them before they even bloom but not this year. Happy New Year xo

  55. Courtney,
    I left a link to Reba's New Year's Table on the link party. I wanted to thank you for leaving a comment on our blog last week and encouraging us to link my friend Martha's house tour. I just barely got back in town to start replying to people. However, it was truly appreciated especially since we are very new bloggers and don't know what we are doing. Thank you so much for visiting and leaving a nice comment.

    Sincerely,
    Eldarose
