Welcome once again to Share Your Style and this week is #202… I am Barb Chapman and welcome to French Ethereal if you are new here! For all of our returning friends, a big welcome to you, too.
This week I am sharing a couple of posts I wrote last fall about creating this antiqued cabinet ~ I have been
way too busy this past week finishing unpacking all our kitchen wares (OMGoodness we have a lot of china!), tidying up the yards and working in the garden, plus finishing getting the trailer cleaned and into storage over the weekend.
It is now ready to sell!
Enjoy these and hopefully next week I’ll have a new post or two to share.
Now let’s get to this week’s wonderful features!
My friend Mary of The Boondocks Blog moved from Greece a little over a year ago bringing her children back to New York and she often goes into the city of Manhattan to visit the sites.
Francis I with terracotta ornamentation! Can you imagine the man hours needed to make and then apply all this trim-work???
Like icing on a wedding cake… Pure magic for anyone who loves iconic buildings anywhere but especially in New York State and the impressive trimmings rarely created anymore. You must stop by!
Debra at Common Ground shares a look at her new living room ~ a place to rest and restore each evening after working all day. I love the neutral decor and of course I am a sucker for armoires! Massive storage and style points, always.
Ever wondered what’s the difference between a raisin, a currant and a saltana? Well, of course I had to look it up…
The difference is the type of grape or berry used and size. Currants are made from seedless fruit which when dried end up slightly bitter ~ might be good for us pre- and full-blown diabetics! Raisins are made from a variety of grapes and when dried are very sweet, also larger than currants. Saltanas come from seedless green grapes and have a lovely golden color and are sweet when dried.
Now we know.
This isn’t your mother’s contact paper of old…
Do stop by and check out her post.
I was just thinking too of going out and picking up a roll to redo Mr. Ethereal’s dresser drawers. He had old brown butcher paper in them currently that has most likely been there since the 1960’s, seriously…
Love this little window styling with it’s napkin swag ~ part of a mini kitchen makeover at Kendra‘s blog, A Proverb 31 Wife!
Lastly, friends Heather and Lisa of Made In A Pinch although now living 2000 miles apart found a way to stay connected by blogging and this feature shares their cute spring post ~
Isn’t this little boy and his pet rabbit
Just a few rules ~ please visit a few folks before you go as we all like new friends and comments for all of our hard work. Thank you! As always, I am excited to see what home decor, cooking, diy craft and garden ideas you bring to Share Your Style each week.
Now let’s see what y’all have!
Time to party!!!
