Share Your Style #404

Bonjour, mes amis! Bienvenue a Share Your Style #404!! I’m watching a new favorite vlog on YouTube called XO Macenna and she and her fiancรฉ and mother over in Paris right now. Totally excited to see a flea market (brocante) on her channel since Amy and I didn’t get to any when we were there. We missed one by one weekend…. Next time!

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!๐Ÿ’œ

Well, last weekend I was down in Corsicana, Texas, for an IOOF meeting. Was a good event but I am glad it is over! ๐Ÿ˜‰ My mother-in-law went with me and she prepared the luncheon ~ which is her specialty and heart, really. We enjoyed eating out and an ice cream treat stop at Braum’s down there. I took Gini over to a women’s dress shop called Cato, and we had fun checking out all of the clothing there. I tried on a super cute blue jean jacket but it was too big. I did find a nice deep green long-sleeved shirt for fall and that came home with us. Oh! And we stopped by Buc-Ees in Ennis (about 20 miles north of Corsicana) and we found some fall Buc-Ees t-shirts for the season. I think that makes the 18th Buc-Ees t-shirt I own… ๐Ÿ˜‰ TRUTH!

I’m still working on painting and varnishing the buffet so no new posts yet for you. Still has a cigarette or old wood smell… Might be painting the whole thing. And that’s okay as I like white painted furniture anyway. Just this little update here. ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, let’s get to the party!


And here are this week’s featured posts…

Our first entry this week is all about snacking ~ Sunday Afternoon with Cookies from Lynne from Thrifting Wonderland are the perfect early fall treat (okay, any time of year, lol!). Yum!!!

    1. Me, too, Debra! I hate to have to sell it if it doesn’t go away. I am thinking of fully spray painting it white, which would look nice. But I love its dark coloring… Still working on it as I can. Glad you enjoyed last week’s party. No SYS this week with Pinterest Challenge. Just too much to fit in with working all day and life. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy fall!

    1. You are so welcome, Tanya! Glad you could make it over for Share Your Style last week. I’m sorry I didn’t get it together to put SYS up for this week but I joined the Pinterest Challenge group and had a lot of members to visit right at the same time. Next time! Happy fall to you!!!

    1. Wendy, I’m glad you enjoyed the feature! I’m sorry that I don’t have a party up this week. It was too much to get going with 15 of us on Pinterest Challenge, working all day and not sleeping well at night. I’m a zombie this week… Lol! Happy fall and SYS will be back next week. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Barb,
    Thanks again for hosting this wonderful party every week! I know how much time goes into doing so and I want you to know that it I truly appreciate it!! I hope you have a great week!

    1. Thank you, Debbie! Glad you enjoyed last week’s SYS party. None this week as I just couldn’t get it together with Pinterest Challenge and working. Hope your weather is beginning to act like fall for you. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hugs, Barb ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Another wonderful party with so much inspiration! I also have some furniture that needs some painting. I need to get working on that! Thanks for hosting, Barb. I hope you have a great day!


    1. Hi Shelbee, hopefully it’s cooling off up there in New York so you can paint before it gets too cold. Our weather is supposed to drop (FINALLY) in another week. Can’t wait! Glad you enjoyed the party; it’ll be back next week. Just couldn’t swing it with Pinterest Challenge, working, and not sleeping well (goes in cycles). Happy fall!

  3. I’ve been following your smokey furniture story and hope the painting does the trick. That smell is so difficult to get rid of. Thanks so much for the feature on Sunday Afternoon Cookies. As always, the link party you host is a great place for new ideas. Have a great week.

    1. Thank you, Lynne! I’m still working on the buffet. It smells better but not free and clear… I’m thinking I’ll paint the entire thing. Will work on the insides again this weekend with spray paint. It’s a process… Sorry SYS is not up this week! I couldn’t get it done and do Pinterest Challenge, too, plus working. Next time! ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy fall and see you next week. <3

    1. Maya, I’m so glad! Sorry I don’t have a new SYS for this week. I’ve not been sleeping well, plus working. Next week, thought. Enjoy your fall and I did get a Pinterest Challenge post out, so I hope that will keep you until then. ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy fall!

    1. Sounds fun, Rita! I just got my MIL a sweatshirt with Happy Thanksmas on it, lol! Buc-Ees out here in Texas has them. She likes that it covers Halloween all the way through Christmas. ๐Ÿ˜‰ SYS will be back up next week. Too worn out to get it going with Pinterest Challenge, working, not sleeping well, you know LIFE. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy fall!
