Potpourri Party #10

Welcome to Potpourri Friday #10.  Time flies when you’re having fun!

I have several iron urns which were decorated with pumpkins for Fall.  You will find the post here along with the saga of the stolen urns.

The talent in the Land of  Blog  is just amazing!  Thanks to all who participated last week.  Here are some of the Highlights!

Korrie at  Red Hen Home  makes a grand  entrance with vintage suitcases!

Sherry of  The  Charm of Home  hosted the most  delightful Witches’ Tea! 


Kayla of Confessions of a DIY-Aholic  remakes a slipper chair  with an ode to Fat Bottomed Girls!

   Pam at  From my Front Porch to Yours  turns an old dresser into a French Princess!

Meet Connie at Hartwood Roses  to see a Greenhouse that she has built on her  own (!)  with only a little help from Mr.  Hartwood Roses!  She really likes doing it herself!

If you need some  adorable fancy pillows, call on Sonya at Beyond the Screen Door!

Ruffles anyone?  See Courtney at French Country Cottage for her ruffled Ottoman and Tablecloth!

Susan at  Maple and Magnolia  turns an aging Watchmaker’s Cabinet into a real beauty!

Actually, I could go on and on, highlighting 210 entries from last week.  Thanks to everyone!
