Home Sweet Home #79

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  I showed you a few ways I create the nautical look in my home last Friday but, I forgot to show you this mermaid.  She makes quite a statement where ever I place her. 

I also have created a Cottage Style Quick Clip of these nautical accessories showing you how to bring the beach home in your house.  I will be starting to make a lot of these videos all under two minutes.  They will be made to watch on hand held devices while your out and about and waiting.  They have no commercials, no pages to turn, and a soundtrack. 
Here is another link for hand held devices if the box below won't load:  Nautical Looks for the Home

Now I would like to highlight some of the posts that caught my eye last week.

Suzan at Simply Vintageous made this hutch over with spectacular color choices.

Courtenay at Creek Line House had her mantel featured on Better Homes and Gardens website.  Congrats Courtenay! 

 Gail at Gail's Decorative Touch added a great antique sign to her mantel shelf.

Liz at Rose Vignettes  had a gorgeous Fresh-Cut Friday last week.  She host a party the first Friday of every month where you can show off any fresh floral arrangements.

Karen at Shabby Brocante showed off her thrifty finds.  This soup tureen is something I have been looking for so I was most excited for her that she found one.

There are many great links each week!  Thank you to all who join me at Home Sweet Home!

I will join these ladies today:
Vintage Inspiration Friday at Common Ground 
Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home
Home and Garden Thursday  at A Delightsome Life 
Creative Things Thursday  at The Vintage Farmhouse
Potpourri Friday at 2805
G'Day Saturday  at Natasha in Oz
