Bling week starts tomorrow!

If you’ve been reading my blog for a bit,
you might remember that I was over the moon
when I found these crystal baubles at Target.
My little heart went pitter patter
thinking of different things to do with them!
And that’s just what I’ve been doing this week…
…blingin’ out the freckled cottage.
I decided to host

I know. I know. 
It’s a bit much.
I just got excited about the sparkle

bling definition:
Flash and sparkle; glamour. The sound that goes along
with the gleam of a diamond.

Bling week begins tomorrow 
and here’s the line up for the week:
(Keep in mind that I blog every other day around here.)
DIY wire and crystal chandie 

Sparkle Sunday Link Party

Antique hanger petite chandie
Sparkle party features
Photo and crystal wire clothesline
I should mention that on a scale of 1-10,
my bling factor is usually about a 4.

I like simple.

Therefore, my projects
are simple with a little {shabby} sparkle.

You are welcome to grab my little button
and add some sparkle to your blog if you’d like.

And, thank you so very much if you do.

If you have any bling-ish projects
that you’d like to share,
link them up to Sunday’s party
or email me photos or a link
for a possible feature on Wednesday.
Surely one of you has tiled the kitchen with 12 x 12 diamonds.
I hope you see you tomorrow.

On a separate note,
Miss Mustard Seed
posted some great tips for bloggers.

She has such a helpful heart
and I was happy to read this post.
I’ve made some good decisions and mistakes on my blog
and the information she shared is invaluable.
Thought it was worth sharing!

    Hiya Jami :D
    I wont be able to participate quite yet :( however…I did just find a vintage brass chandelier with an intricate design at the thrift store for $24.92 (always cracks me up how they have odd cents!)
    I have been on the look out for one for some time now – i carried that thing all around the store like a crazy lady thinkin someone was gonna grab it from me – HA! Once I get around to whitening it up and adding some “bling” I will be sure to post it. Cant wait to see all your “frosting” creations -(“frosting” ala “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days”)

    Bling sounds fun! I can’t wait to see what you’ve created. Yes, Miss Mustard Seed’s post was great. I’m been struggling with getting my blog done and it was very helpful to read her tips and advice. I’m a little nervous to get started. Really enjoy your blog, Jami!
