Share Your Style #209



Welcome to week #209 of Share Your Style and I am
Barbara Chapman your host. Lots of fun features to share this week with a bit of summer fun and patriotic themes, too!



Here's what I shared this week at French Ethereal...



One of my "quick posts" which is easy to copy for any of America's patriotic celebrations like Memorial Day or the Fourth of July ~





The follow up post as to why every piece was chosen for this mantel scene ~ The Story Behind This Patriotic Mantel.


*Finished up the rock wall late last week so will be sharing it in a tutorial soon. Do stop back by and leave me a comment and please share as I appreciate it, thank you.



So let's get to this week's wonderful features
shall we?!





It's all about roses over at Penny's place, Penny's Treasures, with two potted Iceberg roses given to her for Mother's Day. Come see what changes she's made for summer and her lovely home.





Debbie at Debbie Dabble shared her sweet Fairy Garden ~ so much fun packed into a small space! Wouldn't this be fun to create with your children and grands??





New over here at Share Your Style is Linda of Paper Seedlings who created this ethereal card with its sweet chirping birdies sharing what's new in the Stamping Up catalog just coming out for 2019.

Jenn at Clean and Scentsible brought a beautiful summer tablescape to share with us all. Love the little yellow and green pops among the restful blue... 


Honorable Mention ~ I want to share a sewing tutorial video from Stephanie at Sewing with Stephanie which is part of what I learned in several sewing classes way back when. Copying a sewing pattern you love into a permanent pattern you can use again and again ~ great tips!



Thank you to everyone who stopped by and shared their posts last week! Please share everyone's here and let these ladies know you appreciate their hard work.

The Story Behind This Patriotic Mantel...



These colors don't run... 

In my previous post sharing this patriotic mantel just a couple of quick highlight photos were shared. Today I am going to share the story of why I chose each of the items in this mantel scape.

How these small treasures honor our American patriots and veterans on this Memorial Day, 4th of July and Veterans Day...

A Quick Post ~ An American Patriotic Mantel Vignette



Patriotic decor is easy to recreate here in America taking our cues from our flag's deep red and white stripes and the navy blues in the background field behind our stars.  With that I thought I'd create a quick patriotic mantel styling post for you with those
same rich American colors...

Share Your Style #208



Welcome to week #208 of Share Your Style and I am
Barbara Chapman your host. It's a little of this and a little of that this week as I am still out in the garden. I'm in the middle of building the semi-circular garden wall under our master bedroom window, working on designing the new garden gate, and still enjoying the sweetness of Mother's Day just passed.





I am so glad you are here! 

Here's what I share this week at French Ethereal...



A little tribute to my mother Ginny with a Happy Mother's Day post.


Doesn't it seem that each holiday goes quicker each year? Time is flying too fast this year for me, how about you? We have some fun summer time goodies to share with you today ~ from places to play to delicious scents and treats!


So let's get to this week's wonderful features
shall we?!

I'll be making up for some short week's links from the past few weeks when either we were having bad storms or Inlinkz was doing something weird ~ I had switched to asking for permalinks. Does let me know who uses a service to link their posts, though... ;)

I think that may be why it wants me to Accept Your Posts... Will not do THAT again but I do appreciate your permalinks back to Share Your Style, thanks! And I'd love it if you'd follow me here on my blog or on any of my other social media. I appreciate you!  




Thelma at Thel's Kitchen shared her soon-to-be-famous and yummy Cameo Cherry Cupcakes and I just love the sweet candy cameos on top of each one!
