Reblogged from Cheri at Its So Very Cheri


Have you tried the NEW awesome tool–Linky Followers
It has so many amazing features (that GFC never had). If you have not signed up you should. (yes you can have both.) I love the new tool so much and want everyone to enjoy all the new features.
…and did I tell you its super easy and FREE!
What better way to celebrate a fun new blogging tool than to have a party

1. You MUST have the LINKY FOLLOWERS tool on your site to participate.

If you see that your link has been deleted you need to add the LINKY FOLLOWER tool to your site and then come back over and re-enter your link
{You can have both the LINKY FOLLOWERS & GFC on your site but you must have the LINKY FOLLOWERS toolto participate in this party hop.}

2. You MUST follow the person who has the party on their site as a thank you.

3. Just add your blog button to the LINKY PARTY below.

4.Then grab the BLOG HOP code

You will find the code right under the Linky Party where it says CLICK HERE TO ENTER
just under that it says: WHAT IS A BLOG HOP? GET THE CODE HERE
Click on GET THE CODE HERE and enter it into a post on your site.
You can grab the party button code in the FOOTER at Its So Very Cheri
You can grab info from my post if it helps you with your post.

5. Then you follow other bloggers–(as many as you want)
–leave each one of the blogs that you follow a comment letting them know you are following them and ask them to follow you back.

If you want to add the BLOG HOP to your own site you will get lots of new followers(see rule #2)
Its So Very Cheri has and will continue to visit every entry-I try to leave comments but this party has had so many entries and in order to get to everyone I had to change things around. I will come by to make sure you have the Linky Follower tool and follow you. I can’t leave messages for everyone.

I plan on HOPPING from BLOG to BLOG to follow everyone who follows me.

You will see this button in your list of followers.

…So do ya want to go Cruisin’?

If you would like to participate in a fun PIN party head over to the DIY Club and enter the monthly PINNING Party.

Ruffled Dropcloth Wreath

I have had enough of winter and was in the mood for a new wreath. Using things I had on hand and some inspiration from Pinterest, this is what I ended up with:  My 'Ruffled Dropcloth Wreath'.
My inspiration came from Jones Design Company. They have a beautiful 'Spring Wreath' with a tutorial at this link. I love their wreath with it's perfectly placed birds nest laying on a bed of moss and surrounded by gorgeous linen ruffles.
For my version, I chose to use Dropcloth fabric for the Ruffles and a trio of Burlap and Painters Cloth Rosettes in place of the nest. If you are unsure how to make rosettes, Freckled Laundry has a wonderful video tutorial.
The course nature of the Burlap and the nubby imperfections of the Dropcloth fabric are a texture combination I never seem to tire of!
For a bit of 'natural bling' - I added a few sprigs of Juniper and some simple twigs.
The rock backdrop for my wreath is our well used fieldstone fireplace. I am currently working on a simple 'Spring Mantel' and will post about that in the coming days.
