Share Your Style Link Party #178

Welcome to week #178 of Share Your Style! 
This week, Kim, from Serving Up Southern is your host.

Hey everyone, Kim here! I am so excited about this week's party.

I'm honored to be co-hosting with these talented bloggers.

I'm sure I can speak for all of us when I say we would love for you to follow us on our blogs and social media. It's a great way to keep up with the latest and get to know us.

Recently over at Serving Up Southern, I shared:

  A mantel decorated with black crows, a human skeleton picture, a spider web with spiders, and pumpkins.

I love that Share Your Style has introduced me to so many new blogs. Several of the blogs that linkup are already some of my favorite haunts, but I'm loving the new (to me) blogs too. Thank you, to those of you who linked to our last party. You gave me so many choices, making it so hard to choose.

Here are a few of my favorites from last week:

Chinoisierie pumpkin sitting on a table

I love how Yvonne from Stone Gable made this Beautiful and Easy Chinoiserie Pumpkin DIY with designer napkins. I happen to already have some designer napkins here at the house. This just makes me want to have a crafting party with my girlfriends so we can make these. You gals know who you are. ;)

Porch decorated in beautiful fall decor.

Kristy over at the Starfish Cottage shows us How To Create A Beautiful Front Porch For Fall. She has put me in the mood to dress up my porch with some classic fall color. I love everything about the way she's dressed up her porch for the season.

Wooden pallet painted in fall colors propped on porch with pumpkins.

Jennifer over at The Magic Brush shows us An Ombre Painted Pallet Project For Fall. When I saw this I immediately turned to my husband and asked if my pallet collection (collect from building our house) was still out behind the barn. He surely questioned my motives in keeping every single pallet that showed up with building material on them. I assured him that a girl can never have too many pallets. This might be the first pallet project I do from my stash.  :)

Mantle with bat cutouts displayed in glass cloches.

Jamie over at So Much Better With Age shared this Bat Printable For Halloween (2 Sizes). I love the way she used them to decorate her mantle. Aren't they the coolest "flying" around in the cloches?

    Living room decorated with fall decor and a vintage basket. 
Karianne at Thistlewood Farms holds us in great anticipation with her Wait Until You See What I Found At A Yard Sale post! I couldn't wait to see what she had found! And boy-oh-boy did she find some yummy goodness! I love going to yard sales, and vintage markets and finding such treasures. Now go! Go and see what she found!   

Peanut butter pumpkin treats on a baking sheet.

Last, but certainly not least, Tracey over at The Kitchen Is My Playground shares how to make these Easy Peanut Butter Pumpkins. Aren't they just darling! I think I know several little girls that would just love to help make these treats.

Well y'all, that's it for this week. As I said, it was so hard to choose. I could have kept going but then this would have been a never-ending post.

Congratulations to our featured bloggers. Please be sure and grab our Share Your Style button and share it on your blog.

My My How Things Change and our Fall Mantel

Hello all...
I hope your summer was wonderfully relaxing and now you're looking incredibly forward to an amazing autumn! I know it has been quite a long time since I have posted anything new outside of our weekly Share Your Style parties. (Of which I hope you are stopping by to check out every Wednesday evening.) Over the last year things have gotten crazy out of hand busy with my two teens...and as of this August they are both in high school. 
(And we all know how fast that will fly by!)

When I started blogging roughly 8 years ago, Michael and Grace looked like this...
(First day of first grade for Michael)

Our living room fireplace looked like this...

...and my fall mantel, well it looked like this. 

A lot has changed since 2010!
(Michael shot up to pass my almost 5'9" tall Grace)

And as the kids grew up, so did my decorating style.

We painted the living room last September this soft gray color from Benjamin Moore called Stonington Gray.

I wanted to keep the mantel's look simple with some natural texture along with a few pops of orange.

I love the autumn....it is such a beautiful yet nostalgic time of the year. Someday I hope my two will look back fondly and remember these fabulous fall days of their high school years. 
I know I do! They were, absolutely without a doubt, the best days of my young life!!

(This was my high school marching band at a football game some 40 years ago. I was a baton twirler. Can you find me in this pic?)

(Hint: I am the one of the two standing up and cheering...are you surprised?)

Wishing you a great weekend!!!
And a fabulous fall!!
