Share Your Style Link Party #51

I am so delighted to announce two new hosts will be joining us in our future 
Share Your Style parties. Des of Peeking thru the Sunflowers and Julie of Little Farmstead both have beautiful blogs with gorgeous photography and inspiration galore.  This means you will now have five hosts and five blogs which means lots of exposure for you when you add your blog link to our party each week.  And we love to have you....we really do.  I am your host for today's party......Lynn @ The Vintage Nest and so happy to see you.

My first feature pick from last week's inspiration is from Shabbyfufu.  She shares she is working on simplifying her home and shows us a corner of her living room with a few winter elements in it.....gorgeous...isn't it?

Chelsea of Two Twenty One blog, shows us how to make tissue paper flowers.  With Spring just around the corner, which means graduations, baby, bridal showers and all manner of parties, these would be gorgeous and inexpensive decor.  

Laura of the blog Decor to Adore, received a ton of vintage doilies and wandered what to do with them.  I hope she doesn't mind me sharing her pretty face, but I just had to show you the beautiful scarf she made from them.  How romantic!  Thank you Laura for sharing. 

And finally, I just had to share something red for Valentine's Day and I think Virtually Yours does it perfectly with these delicious and beautiful cupcakes.  This photo has me drooling!

If you were featured we would love for you to take and use this button for your blog.  You deserve it!    Don't forget to add a link back on our blog to the party and please visit some other blogs.  It's such a great way to make new friends and keep the old.  
xoxo Lynn.......Now let's get this party started with your personal style.....vintage, antiques, make-overs, do-overs, recipes 


7 Easy and Fun St. Valentine's Day Crafts

With St. Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to pull together some of the cute Valentine's Day crafts created over the years here at 
21 Rosemary Lane!
(Just follow the links below to be whisked away to each craft's easy peasy tutorials!

Made with an inexpensive wooden frame, Mod Podge and some printed card stock paper.

All you need is a cardboard form, some pretty wrapping paper and a lot of patience!

Just couldn't resist making this sweet little cuppy cake!

A fun way to present a gift to that special someone. I made one for each of the kids and Mr. Rosemary Lane!

Made from a spaghetti sauce jar.

Just printed paper, construction paper and jute twine.

I used the last two items to help create my Valentine's day mantelscape a couple years ago.

And Finally using a Styrofoam ball, printed card-stock paper, some ribbon and pearl topped straight pins, I made this pretty

These were all fun to do and the kids liked them too!

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow evening for another fabulous Share Your Style link party!

And have a great day!!!


Share Your Style Link Party #50

Hi everyone and welcome back to another Share Your Style Link Party. This one is number 50 and I am your host this week Barbara from 21 Rosemary Lane.

Over the past few weeks I shared with you all some of
the updates going on in our Kitchen. 

First there was the makeover of a ReStore hutch I purchased last spring. Right before the holidays I painted her black and then for the winter she was dressed in classic black and white.

Another ReStore Score was this simple iron chandy I picked up for only $15. Had to keep my fingers crossed the hard wire was still working. 

And finally for just under $10 I found these wonderfully worn Farmhouse style items at various thrift shops.

Now let's get on to this week's features!

The first link which caught my eye is from Pat over at the blog French Country Style From the Foot of the RockiesShe found this wonderful primitive table that simply stole her breath away. I can see why as I just love its worn features.

The next link I am featuring had me a the first picture. Kristen from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia shared her newly remodeled kitchen. It was a process almost two years in the making, but I think it was totally worth the wait! 

Another kitchen redo I loved was actually a kitchen cabinet and island makeover. Chelsea from Two Twenty One reused her existing old oak cabinets and transformed them into a true thing of beauty! (Psst that is a bookshelf added to the end of the island!)

And talk about transformations, I couldn't get over this one from Julie over at The Little Farmstead who was brave enough to paint...yes paint her piano! I have a piano I've been seriously thinking about painting and I think Julie has finally given me the courage to do so!!!

Angelina from the blog Peonies and Orange Blossoms shared her thoughts on a Barbour Bednell coat she received for Christmas. After reading her review of this beautiful outerwear I so want one of these fabulously designed coats.

And rounding out this week's picks are these super yummy looking Strawberry Jam Cupcakes from Bunny over at Bunny's Warm Oven.

Thank you to everyone who linked up to last week's party.

Thrifty Farmhouse Finds (For Under $10)

Hi everyone and happy Monday! How did any of you who had to deal with storm Jonas make out? I hope OK. We were fine despite the almost 30 inches of snow we had dumped on us. No power outages and by Sunday afternoon the main roads, for the most part, were dry and clear.

Over the weekend I shared with you a thrift store chandy I picked up last week at ReStore. She was only $15 and I just love the way she sparkles in my kitchen.

But what I didn't share with you were the other thrifty items I found while doing a little shopping with my sister Kim. You see it was her...ah...well big birthday last Tuesday and what she loves to do is thrift shop, so we were on a mission to seek out new places and to do just that! The first place we hit was 
located on Routes 202 and 263 in Buckingham Pa. This shop is absolutely adorable and is filled to the brim with tons of goodies. What I found there was a beautiful tableware service for 7. 

I fell in love with the pretty rose pattern, it is so different than anything else I own and the set was only $6! (They even threw is a cute basket for me to carry my new treasure home.)

Later in the week we stopped at the Holy Redeemer Thrift Store in Hatboro Pa. Neither of us had ever been there before so we had lots of fun milling around and checking out all of their goodies. I picked up this pretty teapot for a whopping $2. It is going on the shelf above the back slider going out to the screened-in porch.

Then on my way to the check out at ReStore to buy my pretty chandy, I picked up this rather weathered white and black enamel pot for one dollar.

I think the pot rounded out this week's Farmhouse inspired collection quite well.

So my total for all three items came out to just $9.  Needless to say I was a squealing!! How about you...have done any thrifting yet this year?

Stay warm and wishing you a great week!

Baby it is Snowing Outside but My New Chandy is Hanging Inside

It has been cold and snowing here all of today so no one is going anywhere. I have been listening to the dismal weather reports as the meteorologist warnings to stay indoors couldn't be more serious. The reports are that this storm may well top the two big storms of 1993 and '96, and there has been complete radio silence with regard to snow totals in New York City since about one o'clock this afternoon. As of right now there is probably somewhere in the area of 2 feet on the ground, and it is still coming down! We are all cozied up indoors with a huge crockpot full of  my spicy chili all ready to go for tonight's meal.

Earlier today Mr. Rosemary Lane was kind enough (after a lot of begging and pleading on my part) to hang my new kitchen chandelier I scored this past Thursday at ReStore  for only $15. 

I had to keep my fingers crossed she was going to work as they don't test electrical items which are hard wired at ReStore. But she worked and I was thrilled!

You may remember the chandelier I had here before...

And while I do still like the old fixture it felt a little too clunky for the kitchen's new farmhouse vibe.

As for the conditions outside, the snow is suppose to end here sometime before midnight and tomorrow is going to be sunny and 34 degrees! Perfect for a full day of sledding for Mr. RL and the kiddos. As for me, I think I may begin to repaint my kitchen chairs and possibly, if the roads permit, try to hit a fabric store or two in search of new some material to cover my kitchen chair seats.

Wishing you all a safe, warm and wonderful rest of your weekend!
