Wow Us Wednesdays #101

Welcome to Wow. How is your week going so far? I have been bitten hard by the painting bug and started a big project on Monday that has been put off for over a year. I think it is about time to get it done. We have nothing but rain outside so a good time to paint.

There was plenty of inspiration and talent last week. Let's look at just a few.

Mom 4 Real shows off her fabulous new open shelves in her kitchen. Love the color in the back.

This bathroom full of vintage charm was shared by This Green House.

These fabulous barn doors are a DIY project shared by diy Design Fanatic.

Isn't this pretty? Makes me just want to lounge on that chaise. Let's Add Sprinkles shared this pretty view from her bed that she had been sick in and more of her room.

This beautiful vintage sofa was transformed from a very ugly duckling into this beautiful swan by Blue Roof Cabin. You must see the before.


Beautiful transformation on this secretary by Adventures in Decorating.

This pretty little desk and chair was shared by DIY by Design.

Storywood Designs shared her closet makeover that she worked on for days. You really should see the before. I love when bloggers show real life.

Penny of The Comforts of Home and her husband are fixing up their new home and this is her pretty living room reveal.

If you were featured you can grab a "featured" button from my sidebar.

Now let's see what you have to wow us with this week.

Please read:
A few of you had trouble linking last week and I am sorry about that. I was trying not to use the advance option of requiring a back link through inlinkz, but I was having way too many folks not adding a backlink to their post. A few bad apples have caused me to require inlinkz to make sure there is a link. Most people had no trouble. If you have the button and it doesn't let you link then add a highlighted link and it should work. Sorry for the extra step.

Party Guidelines

1. Please have a separate link to this party in your post (not a mass link page) or add my party button from the sidebar to the post. If there is not a separate link you will not be featured and/or could be deleted. I am hopefully bringing you traffic and I would appreciate the same. If you find your link deleted just add a back link or my button and try again.
 2. Please don't link the same thing you linked last week. Only new links.
 3. Please be a follower of this blog through GFC.
 4. Turning off word verification would be a great thing. You will get more comments if you do.
 5. No advertising or etsy links.
6. No link parties, please..
7. Please no more than three links per person.
8. If you want to pin a picture to Pinterest please click on the picture and pin it from the original source and not my blog. Thanks
Hope you will join me on FACEBOOK and Pinterest.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks so much for hosting! Enjoy your painting project. Just thought you might want to know (I know you mentioned it above), but for the 2nd week in a row, it won't take your button as my link back. It makes me do a link. Do you know if there is anything to do to eliminate doing both? or why it won't accept the button as a link back?
    Thanks!
    KC

  54. Great features! I'm sorry I just cannot seem to be able to join your party, WUW as it always says I don't have a back link, which I have, plus a button as I do for Susan's, BNOTP and it works..but with Wow Us Wednesday it's not. I have been linking in the last parties, though. Thank you for hosting.

  91. Wonderful features. Just not clever enough to join. Have no idea what a backlink is. I added the button to to my link and side bar, but no luck. Click on the button and went to your link that way to join, no luck. Oh well. I'll visit and have fun that way!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Hi Kim! I enjoy your party every week. Thanks for hosting. Unfortunately I have not been able to link up posts for the last two weeks. The linky says that I don't have a link back to you but I have your party button at the bottom of my post. I thought that I'd let you know in case others are having the same problem. It looks like a lot are able to do it so maybe it's just me. :) Anyway, I still enjoy every one else's posts and yours too!

  110. I just LOVE your Wow Us Wednesdays. Even when I don't have a thing creative to share, I love stopping by! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  111. I think you are wise to begin to require a back link. I've been noticing that there are some bloggers that seem to visit the same parties I do...and I thought that I would take the time to check out their other visiting sites. What was most interesting to me was that they only indicated that they had linked up to 2 or 3 blogs for that post. Yet...it was that post that I kept seeing at many more places. And what is even more interesting...these same people take time to comment. I know that everyone makes a mistake sometime....but...as a newer blogger and even newer 'linker' I have a sense that there is some sort of unwritten rule for sharing the love....and I find this sort of like sticking your hand in the candy dish and hoping no one notices. In this very public place people do notice. They really do. My heart goes out to you Kim....and other hosts.
    Wishing you a most Extraordinary week!

    ReplyDelete
  112. I finally figured out why I couldn't link up last week your button has your blogspot address and your blog is now .net!! I added a text link, hope that's OK!
