Potpourri Friday #2 & Giveaway

Thank You! 
This is a special thank you to all who joined the inaugural Potpourri Party…All  142 of you!  You made the first party a wonderful success!  Hope you all  will  come again and bring a friend!
You  are  appreciated!


 I want to share a comment from Shirley at Sweet Romantic Notions:
This is the type of party that a next door neighbor might have to call the police to control the crowd…. This party ROCKS!!! Hugs..Shirley

The secret of the fainting couch revealed:   The cushion lifts  up and out from the back  to make a double-fainting couch.  (Now why would you need a double fainting couch?)   It’s totally hidden and a real trick to open.



Here is a sample of the posts from last week!


 Rosemary of A Summer  Porch shared beautiful ways to extend a Summer Garden.



Nancy of  Nancy’s Daily Dish has the most fascinating  Birdcage Dining Table.


  
You should see all of the seascape deliciousness created by Rosemary at Ozma of Odds.



 Patty at A Few Pennies gave us a tutorial  on creating a Fall arrangement.



Ellie at The Lavender Tub found a Fabulous $3 Mirror and she really does have a Lavender Tub!



 Want to get away?   Take a nap at Anita’s of  Cedar Hill Ranch

Thanks to all of you who shared your inspiration  last week!    If you were featured today, please grab the feature button on the sidebar!
