Found & Foraged Linky Party #29

Where did the week go? I returned from vacation bright eyed and bushy tailed…the world was calm and serene and then blammo! Back to reality. But such is life I guess. I’ve been playing catch up this week on emails and work. I’m behind on my blog posts too, BUT I have a really special post on Monday all ready to go, and it’s a doozy. It’s from my favorite series, “I Make Emily Henderson Cry”, and I can’t wait to share it with you. This week I did post my Mix & Match Style Challenge with Chairish. A dream room I’m ready to move into immediately.

Today was spent working in the Decorist guest bedroom. Hanging curtains, lamp shades and mirrors. I need to wrap up my shopping and slap some paint in that sucka! Then it’s off to sand down the picnic table. Fingers crossed it turns out. With all the DIY projects on my to-do-list, I must have channeled that into tonight’s linky party. There’s a whole lotta clever DIY projects featured this evening. Lots of spring clean and such I guess you could say. What are you guys up to this weekend?

Found & Foraged Linky Party #22

Happy Saturday you guys! During the last Found & Foraged party, I mentioned that I had kinda fallen behind, but I didn’t fully explain. Not only did I have family in town for the holiday, I had been prepping for some really fun and exciting projects that finally came to fruition last Tuesday. For all my fellow bloggers reading this, you know how every once in a while you have one of those amazing blog days. That day for me was last Tuesday. It doesn’t happen often, so I cherished it!

I published my latest I Make Emily Henderson Cry, and thanks to a little birdy…eh hem, I’m lookin’ at you Gilly =) …the REAL Emily Henderson wrote on my Facebook post. Literally, it was 6AM, and I about to head out to the grocery store. (Because is there a better time to pick up deli meats and avocados?) Anyhoo, I was scrolling through my phone and there she was! My eyes popped out of my head like a cartoon character, and I started to jump up and down like a banshee in the kitchen. The Boy looked at me like I was insane and completely off my rocker. I tried to speak, but the words wouldn’t form. I finally just threw my phone at him and managed to say, “LOOOOOOOOK!!!”

Also that morning, Chairish blogged a little interview about me and the Instagram Sales I’m completely addicted to. Not only am I doling out tips and tricks on how to snag the items you want, but I’m also sharing how I’ve styled the items I’ve purchased. The next one will be hosted by another one of my favorite bloggers, Waiting On Martha. She took Chairish thru the Scott Antique Market to find 25 amazing items that will go up for sale on Instagram Sunday, April 12th 9AM PT.

An to really top Tuesday off, I was filming with WGN TV (Chicago TV station) for a couple home hack segments that will appear soon on Weekend Workbench! Which reminds me, I owe an email to Ashley. Phew! That was everything I think.
