Wow Us Wednesdays #36

10.19.2011

Hope everyone's week is going well. We have had such gorgeous weather, but now we are getting rain and much colder weather is coming in tomorrow. That's okay. It is fall isn't it?

I went through every single link and there are still a few without the proper link back. I hope you will take the time to read or reread the party guidelines. It is some of the same people each week not adding the proper link. I truly appreciate each one of you for joining in, but I do need those links added.

 There were lots of wows last week.  Let's take a look at just a few.


I thought some of you might be interested in a tutorial on making this mummy head. Check it out Ugly Duckling.

Great makeover by Emily's Up-Cycled Furniture.

Oh, how I love the chalk paint colors and finish on this piece by The Empty Nester.

I hope you will read this touching story by Make Them Wonder. It is truly a Wow!

Shizzle Design gave this chest some legs and a new coat of paint and now it is beautiful.

I just adore the added whimsy of the vintage toy truck hauling a load of pumpkins on this front porch by

The first time I saw this was on rate my space and I was blown away. Now Kathryn has shared it on her blog. Check it out at Take My Breath Away.

Thanks to everyone who participated last week and added a link back in their post. If you were featured please feel free to grab a Featured button from my side bar.

There were also several new faces last week. Thanks for joining!

Also, thanks so much for the sweet birthday wishes for Leila!

Now on to the party.
Party guidelines:

Add a visible link to the party in your post or add my Wow button from my sidebar. Linking to "Parties here"or find the parties I am linking to on my sidebar or somewhere else is not acceptable.  No one should have to search for the parties you are joining.
If you find your link deleted then it was not following the guidelines. Just add the link and try again.

I have been told by many of you that you enjoy this party because you receive a lot of traffic from it. I would appreciate some new traffic, too. If you don't have a link to the party in your post then no one has a clue what party you have joined. Readers may notice your link and look at the party and then they may want to join, too. I know this is how I have found new parties and blogs, too. 
I know it is time consuming adding links if you are joining a lot of them. Hey, I add them when I am joining parties and adding a link is just part of it. I know how much time the hosts put in. So add a link.

I hope you will take time to visit a few of your neighbors in the party. You may find some new blog friends.
Please be a follower of this blog.
Please don't link the same thing you did last week. 
No advertising or link parties, please.

  54. Will you come give the "linking speech" to my WhateverWednesday linkers too? haha! I have the same troubles. I don't know if it's laziness, being inconsiderate , or maybe they really don't realize it's rude? I don't know.
