Wow Us Wednesdays #75

7.18.2012

I was so excited today to have Ballard Designs follow me on Pinterest and to like me on Facebook today. They left a comment that they love my blog. I got a bit star struck. Never thought of a company like them following little ole me. You just never know who is looking. Well, on to the party.

So many great links last week and I picked several to share so let's get to it.


Beautiful white living room with a wonderful view shared by The Homeless Finch.

Pam of Simple Details shares how she made this outdoor chandy.

Anita of Far Above Rubies shares her new chicken coop her husband built for her chickens who will soon be providing them with fresh eggs.

Cool serving cart found curb side was transformed into this beauty by 21 Rosemary Lane.

DIY pallet word art created by The Space Between.

These are the cutest pillows created from her children's artwork at There was a Crooked House.

Wonderful hand painted table by Decorate With a Little Bit.

Cute little play kitchen built by State of the Home.

Love this red dresser by Living a Redeemed Life.

Check out how to make these cute smore-nilas at Etheral Plus What I Love.

    I just saw your pond...it is gorgeous. We used to use the blue stuff in ours at the farm, too. The water lilies are gorgeous. Everything is burned up here in Missouri...not rain in sight and triple digits again!

    We are headed to the lake Saturday. Need some rest!! Thanks so much for hosting WOW.

  54. Hi, Kim. This is the 3rd week I've tried to link up and inlinkz hasn't accepted my link. The first two weeks I had your icon and link listed with an inlinkz Link Manager within the post. This week I added a text link...so there were 2 links to Savvy Southern Style but it rejected it anyway. Not sure what is happening, but thought you might want to know. It obviously isn't a problem for most folks. Thanks and God bless, Gail (BibleLoveNotes.com)
