New Weekly Linky Party (be brave, be brave!)


So, I've decided to brave the world of linky parties again!

I just want to throw a party (*in my Veruca Salt voice*)!  I'm a party girl at heart.  I attend every linky party I can find....I get around....And I'm not ashamed...

In my attempt to be somewhat creative & different, I came up with...





I LOVE shopping my house.  You?

Is it because I'm a closet shopaholic who forgets what she buys, only to find it months later in a closet or cabinet?  
(and I'm sure the intent was to hide it from Mr. Finesse Your Nest and then "casually" incorporate it into the home decor.  Oh come on, I know I'm not alone on that one, right?) 

It's the only place you can shop in your pajamas with a mud mask on your face? 
(well, except Wal-Mart I guess....it takes all kinds folks....it takes all kinds!) 

Or is it because it's FREE?!?!
 Okay, it's all of the above for me, but especially the FREE part!

So, here's how this weekly linky par-tay will work...

I'll share a project (large or small) each week when I "shop my house" and you do the same.

It can be ANYTHING....repurposing an item, moving something to a different room for a new look, a recycled project, painting projects, organizing projects, tablescapes, rearranging furniture...the sky's the limit.

THE ONLY RULE?  

YOUR PROJECT MUST USE ITEMS YOU ALREADY OWN. 
We're sharing projects that cost NO MONEY.  

Can't wait to see everyone's ideas for FREE decorating!

So grab the party button on the right side of the page & come party with me for FREE on the weekends! 
Linky will be up Saturday morning through Monday morning, to give everyone time to shop, create, show and tell!

Thanks for stoping by my blog!!
I do love to sew...i love making basically anything..i never had somebody to teach me to sew. When i was 15 someone gave me a sewing machine,and i tought myself. I think you would really like it. You should go and get that sewing machine out of your Garage..RIGHT NOw, and start sewing. Good luck, and tell me when you sew your first project..
Thanks Amanda
P.s i love your blog, and all your ideas!!

I love the idea of "re-shopping" for my house, especially since we're on a tight budget these days. I know my hubby will appreciate it too! Now I just have to find some inspiration.

Thanks for the advice on my blog; I have never heard of that white/non-white colored background statistic, but it actually makes sense!

FUN!!!! I have an entire closet where I love to "shop"! I am all about buying something that's on sale even if I don't have a use for it right away.

Jane said...

Oh what fun! I love shopping the house...but I think my hubby thinks I'm crazy rootin' around in our dirty, old attic! Sounds like a fun party!

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

I'm afraid that I probably will discover nothing in my house!

Kendall, your link button picture just vanished in my sidebar!

Also, another giveaway by Outer Banks Trading..., wanna try winning something else!! Oh, and if you blog about it you'll be entered in a draw for free ad space on my blog.

See you!
