Before we begin this week’s party, let’s take a look back at the past week…

Each week, we share the most popular post from the previous week’s party on both of our blogs.  In addition, each hostess picks a few favorites to share.  Be sure to check out each of our blogs to see all the features!

Also, remember to stop by our  Best of the Weekend Pinterest Board  where we pin the features each week!



This week, I joined a Vintage Valentine’s Day Blog Hop where I shared a Vintage Valentine’s Day Vignette .  When you swing by to read my post, be sure to scroll to the bottom for links to the rest of the 25 bloggers.  I am sure you will be so impressed with all their creative Valentine ideas!

  1. Very very sweet of you to include my Valentine’s Day Tiered Tray! Thank you! I am still trying to get used to the new inlinkz. I help lead some link ups myself and it can be a bit frustrating! Maybe many of us just don’t get a change, LOL!

    1. You’re welcome – it’s beautiful! Yeah, I am not thrilled with the new Inlinkz either. I’m hoping it doesn’t discourage people from joining. Their website made it sound like we couldn’t use the old way any more yet I am seeing some old ones on other blogs. If everyone hates it, I might try to override it and use the old way as long as I can! Thanks for your input and have a great weekend!

  2. Thanks for including me in the feature! As for the linking — I don’t really like this version as well as others I’ve seen (not sure what the others are called.) It’s very clunky and you can’t crop or position the photo. Not thrilled with the logging in, either. But mostly, it’s the photo thing.

    1. You’re welcome and thanks for linking up! I agree with you – I don’t like that you can’t crop in this version. I think I will try to use their old version next week if it lets me. I have a feeling no one will be happy about this change! Thanks for your input!

  3. Thank you so much for hosting again this week. You always do so much for bloggers! Have a relaxing week! I am off to see some posts. Looks like a lot of inspiration tonight.

  4. I am so happy that I was able to link up and share my crochet fingerless gloves I made. Thanks for hosting and have a nice week and a Happy Valentine’s Day.

    1. You’re welcome and thanks for joining! Our next party starts tomorrow morning at 8:00 am EST. Enjoy the rest of your week!
