Share Your Style #372

Welcome to this week’s Share Your Style #372, dear friends! Here we are coming up on New Year’s Eve… Boy, this year has flown by!

This link party is for home decor, DIY, crafts, recipes and the like, but you are more than welcome to share any of your family-friendly posts with us all. Please feel free to share this post too and join my small but loyal band of friends. I appreciate you! I appreciate your subscribing, also. As always, I am glad that you are here… 💜

I am Barbara Chapman and I’d love it if you’d follow me here on my blog and on any of my other social media sites, too.  Thank you!💜

I sure have enjoyed visiting with you this year, and now here in my eighth year as a blogger, I think about what changes I should make for the upcoming year.

Do you do that?? I’d like to do more vlogging on my YouTube channel if I could learn how to string videos together and get myself in front of the camera. Talking to a camera doesn’t bother me, it’s all the technical stuff, lol! I used to sing for the kids at church a number of years ago and that got me over the fear of talking into a microphone. 😉

Well, let’s get to our party, shall we?

Here’s what I shared this past week at French Ethereal…

Our Christmas Table, Our Christmas Hutch and a Little Weather ~ I so enjoy having time off to really enjoy decorating for you! We sat down to a nice Christmas Eve dinner with our daughter.

And here are this week’s featured posts…

Chicken Sheet Pan Nachos

I literally started some bibb lettuce, tomatoes and spinach in the shed/greenhouse today! It’s more of an experiment but the heating mat is underneath my domed seed tray, so… We shall see! I am getting my Monty Don on and hope to have tomatoes going year-round. ;)’

Shelbee from Shelbee on the Edge has THE CUTEST OUTFIT (and I love the teal boots!!!) in her post ~ It’s the End of the World as We Know It and I Teal Fine (+ Link Party #325). I love Shelbee’s fashion posts as they relate on so many levels!!! If you haven’t stopped by to check out Shelbee’s monthly “fashion follows art” posts, you should. A lot of fun and I always learn something new about an artist, a piece of artwork and about the hosts as well! Enjoy!!!

  1. Thanks so much for hosting each week, Barb. I’d love to start seeds this year since our kitties have passed. Maybe they’d survive without being “salad”. Praying for you to have a wonderful and blessed New Year!

    1. Thank you, Debra! Enjoy your New Year’s, too!! I’m sorry to hear about your kitties passing. Yoda has good days and not so good. He is heading to 17… Ancient for a Pekingese. Thinking of you! 🐈❤️

  2. Barb,
    Merry Christmas!!!

  3. Barb, thanks so much for featuring my holiday table! We had a wonderful 9 days with my mom, sons, fiancé, and another dog here to make merry. Sadly, everyone leaves today, but what fun we had! Wishing you the happiest and healthy 2023!

    1. Thank you, Debbee!! I’m so glad you had a nice long visit! Our daughter really was here only two days, but it was enough. FaceTime with other family and friends… wishing you a wonderful and healthy 2023, too! 🥳

  4. Thank you for taking the time to host this each week – always so many fun ideas! I’m making those chicken nachos for New Year’s Eve! I appreciate the feature of my Winter Hiking post!
