Share Your Style Party #41

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Share Your Style!  I hope this week hasn't been too busy for you getting ready for Thanksgiving and all.  I am looking forward to a big meal tomorrow and spending time with my family.  Since I'm not hosting this year, I'm just making a couple of dishes to take to my sister's house.  I must say my kitchen smelled good today while I was baking!  I hope that all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I look forward to seeing whatever you have to share with us this week.  Barbara at 21 Rosemary Lane is your host.

Hi Everyone and welcome to the 41st Share Your Style party! This week your hostess is me, Barbara, from the blog 21 Rosemary LaneI would love for you to stop by for a visit sometime!

 Here is what has been going on at 21 Rosemary Lane over the past few weeks. I shared with you some of the fall beauty we enjoy here in the great northeastern United States. This year's foliage was especially gorgeous!!

I also showed you how to make this darling Pumpkin Garland.

And finally last week I shared a few ideas I have to update our rather boring kitchen walls. The color I have seriously been kicking around is a gray and I plan to pair it with white bead board wainscoting. To see some of my inspiration pics just click hereHoping to get this part of the kitchen project done before Christmas!

And now on to the features!!! 
First up is a pretty back porch table setting for two from Lory at DesignthusiasmI am so crushing on those colorful pillows by Ralph Lauren and just look at that view...gorgeous!

Next is a darling cracked patina nightstand Erin from How to Nest for Less  refinished for her daughter's bedroom makeover. Hop on over and check out how she created this lovely patina look as well as the rest of her darling room.

Now we are going back outside to take a peek at a beautiful front porch put together by LuAnn from the blog Lovely Livings. I just adore all of the mums, pretty pumpkins and white rockers with orange pillows. Sooo welcoming!

 OK I admit it...I am a complete sucker for anything chocolate. This gorgeous Chocolate Buttermilk Cake with Whipped Chocolate Buttercream Frosting was created by Once Upon a Chocolate Life. Isn't it stunning??? Someone please hand me a fork!!!

For those of you who are still looking for some Thanksgiving table setting ideas, Dagmar from the blog Dagmar's Home shared seven wonderfully inspiring and easy Cottage Thanksgiving Tablescapes.

Gold and White Accents

Hello everyone!

Since brass went out of style many years ago, I've made a conscious effort to replace it in my home.  However, as it is coming back in style, I've noticed that metallic gold accents in the home are also following it.  I'm still not back on the brass bandwagon, but I do like some touches of gold and white in home accessories lately.  

So, I found these cute gold and white pictures and hung them in my hallway.

Toy Horse Makeover

Hello everyone!

I recently used some of my birthday money to purchase a cute pull toy horse from HomeGoods.  I loved it just the way it was at first, but then decided I would like it better in a different color.  Here is what it looked like originally.

Changes in the Kitchen

Hello everyone!

Since I now have a pantry, I moved the bins out of the bookcase that were holding food items.  Now, I'm left with decorating space for some of my favorite white serving pieces.

An Early Christmas Present and Gifted Artwork

Hello everyone!

This post should probably be titled "How Many Times a Family Room can be Made Over".  Ha!  I keep making changes and it's getting hard for even me to keep up!  However, this time I made a BIG change and it will probably not get changed up for a long time now.  The reason it probably won't be changed up as often is because of a new piece of furniture I got as an early Christmas present from my husband.  I have been wanting a new sofa for a long time.  I wanted one with a custom slipcover so it would be easier to live with and one that was comfortable and well made.  So, I went to Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams and found one.  Let's take a peek, shall we?

Share Your Style Party #39

Hello everyone!

How is your week going so far?  Mine has been better than usual.  I will share more about that in my next post.  But, one of the reasons I have a big smile on my face is because of the change in weather here.  It has been so ugly, rainy, and windy  for the last week and a half.  But we finally saw the sun come out yesterday and today.  It has been the most wonderful feeling.  I love sunshine!  I don't think I could live in a climate that gets constant rain and clouds.  So, with my new good mood, I want to welcome you to another edition of Share Your Style!  I can't wait to see what you have to share this week.  Ron from Uptown Acorn is your host.
