Summer love had me a BLAST! Partay is ON!

 I have been a busy little bee around here. 
Painting, sprucing , prepping, planting. 
 My gosh you would think someone important was coming over.

Well you never do know in blog land who is coming over,
 so I always try to do my best.
I seemed to be loving green and blue this summer. 

My Roo's all got a fresh coat of Avocado green.
Can't forget my thrift store score from last can see my OPRAH video at the bottom of my blog for the before.

You may have laughed when I said I must be having someone important over.  It is true though, you never know who is lurking your blog. Just a reminder, COUNTRY WOMAN magazine spread on us will be out soon.

Speaking of BLUE...I had some chalk paint left and this piece was in sad shape.

I left it out all winter long, and thought I would try my spare chalk paint.
So far so good...
It totally brought it back to life again.

Not only is this a fun full week long Blog party girls, there are lots of giveaways too!

I am a scentsy rep and truly adore this wonderful wickless product.
I have put together a little basket for one lucky girl.

Shasta daisy plug in,
two scentsy bars, Ocean breeze, and citrus sun tea.
Coconut lemongrass hand sanitzer,
and  very cute count your blessings embroidered tea towel.
I do have a online partay going on now, if you would like to browse.

Party Rules:

  • Link Up any post past or present related to this parties theme
  • Be sure to link back to your original post and not just your url (main blog address)
  • Please post the Blogger Block Party button (code located above and in sidebar) in your post so others can join in the fun! (MANDATORY)
  • Visit another guest. We love it when you party with our other guests! Please take a moment and visit some of the other posts and leave some comment love! This is what makes a party so much fun!
  • We'd love it if you'd share the Blogger Block Party on your Facebook Pages and Twitter (use #BloggerBlockParty in your tweet) (Not mandatory but we'd appreciate it!)

Hope on over to  Vanessa's and check out her kick off with
Summer Activities for Kids

" Link up your themed related post(s) on each blog as it goes live on their party day. Your links will appear on all twelve blogs that are hosting the party as their posts go public! That means your posts will appear simultaneously on all of our blogs once you have linked them up and will be there throughout the party! You are welcome to share as many summer posts as you like related to the themes...and trust us there's a theme for everything! That's it. Just find a theme related to your post during the week and link up to it...for one HUGE link party!"

Any participant in this party is eligible for my scentsy giveaway, so be sure to leave a comment.

Hey, I would love to have you as a new friend too!

Hey Debbie...I tried 4 times to get the party button to load into my post. I couldn't get it to work. So I pasted the blog button with your link right underneath. Have you had anyone else tell you they had trouble? I was so frustrated! I will try again later. Maybe Blogger was just being a pain. Oh...LOVE the blue table! Thanks for hosting this great party.

So glad to be back partying with you. I love your summer deck, it has come together fabulously. Are you signing copies of the magazine if we send them to you? I want to say I knew you 'when'

Debbie I also had trouble with the party button, and did the same as Ann did.

It all looks so inviting and relaxing! Love the pot inside the glass - thing :) -- hope you're able to enjoy it all without getting eaten alive by mosquitoes where you are! We have to stay in the screened gazebo -- can't enjoy the yard or porch at all this year!

I've tried several times to get the button to work, Debbie. I gave up and just linked it to your blog for now. I'll be back in a bit to try again. I need to go have Father's Day supper on the patio with J, at the moment. Back in a bit.

Thanks for hosting!:-)

Hi Debbie! Thanks so much for hosting this fun paint party. I thought about taking the rock painting seriously, but since it's been 103 degrees here for 4-5 days in a row now, I decided against it.

Of course, your projects always look great! You always inspire!

Hi Debbie!
Love this big party! I ended up copying the button and url address to your blog - I couldn't get the url to the party post to come up, so I just used your general blog address.
Don't you love technology- especially when it goes berserk right at party time???
Thanks for the fun!

Debbie, your lantern touchup looks fabulous. I linked 3 projects to the party (not sure if there is a limit?) but I honest-to-goodness could not get the button to attach. There does not seem to be an image file referenced in the html. So I added a text based link. Hope that is ok. Thank you very much for starting the blog party week! ~Diane at home sweet homemade
