Feathered Nest Friday

It's that time again...
grab your posts and get ready to link them up!!

French Country Cottage

So last weeks party was a bit insane...
I scheduled the post and then went out of town on a little date with the man 
All was well when I checked in on the party to make sure it was up and running
and then  Friday morning I got an email saying that the party post was gone. 
So I hopped online and yep.. the post was gone.
All your comments were there- and the title- but the entire post and party had disappeared.
I apologize to all of those who were featured last week and didn't get the full weekend feature.
There isn't even a draft post to republish- I had to grab the link code and put up a new post.
That was the second post last week that had problems and I received several emails from you about problems commenting too.
So let's hope that Blogger likes me better this week
and the party stays up with no problem!

This week~
 I shared my ruffled drop cloth panels tutorial HERE

 an English garden inspired patio makeover that I did with Kmart HERE


as well as a little post inspired by blooming lilacs HERE



How about a little sponsor love...

 I already have a fountain out in the backyard and would love to put in a little
 pond too ... might be one of my Summer projects :)
 Aquascape  has lots of ideas and how to's on putting a pond in
or creating a  water feature in your yard

Okay~ let's get on to the review!!

Fishtail Cottage shared this darling antique dog bed with it's new look and it looks
like her sweet pup loves it. I love them both!

Kristin from Simply Klassic shared her gorgeous bed makeover...
amazing.

Debbie at Debbiedoos shared her twig wreath in it's latest new color-
I say 'latest' because this wreath loves to get makeovers and has been several colors!
 I think the green is perfect and with the burlap ribbon- so cute.

P1180062 768x1024 Spray painted wreath...{one last life}

Creatively Living shared her kitchen transformation and I am loving these open cupboards- backed with chalkboard paint- even better!!

Laurie from Heavens Walk shared her beautiful white ruffles
 and how she got them to look so pretty and pristine- such a gorgeous post.

  4. Hello Courtney,
    It is unnerving when posts get messed up. I went through that some time back. I started saving posts in html form on a word document just in case. So easy to replace that way. Do love your drapery curtains - I need to make some for my green room....I am inspired - thank you for being a gracious hostess,
    Kathy

  7. My sympathies over blogger losing your post, and I hope things are back to normal for you. I just adore your bicycle with the lilacs in the basket from yesterday's post. (Makes me think of my childhood.) Thanks for hosting today's party and have a wonderful weekend.

  54. First time visiting, first time posting, first time totally forgetting to feed any creature in the house - I was too absorbed in this party. I am actually back for day two. Have met a few friends over here and made some new ones. Two favorites stand out -#30 - the French fairy tale book covers and the beautiful farmhouse room at #82. Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend!
