Welcome to "Cowgirl Up!" Link Party #12 and my Features from last week. . . .

Welcome to Week 12 of 
 Cowgirl Up! Link Party . . .
the party with a cowgirl can-do  spirit!
1 Party, 4 Blogs

     Howdy-doo! It's Farmhouse Porch today, and my featured links from this week's "Cowgirl Up!" linky party! I read through every link this week and found tons of great inspiration...too much. I had to narrow it down. Out of my personal favorites I ended up choosing the bloggers with a link back to the our party. 

     It's important to link back ya'll! There were more than a few blogs I reeeaaallly wanted to feature but they didn't link back to the party. When you link back, you send traffic to the party. This is good for us and good for you! Think about it, if everyone else is linking back they are sending traffic your way. Be a sweetie and do it for them too.♥

Now give me a hug. I still love you punkin'! If you are new to blogging (as I still feel I am most of the time) don't hesitate to ask for help linking up.

Spring is here! That means fresh vibrant florals and light, airy interiors. A Sort Of Fairy tale reveals a downstairs makeover that inspires me to add some spring to my decor...

Here we have this "Made to look Old" bucket label DIY by Janet at The Decorating Diaries. Didn't she dress it up and stage it beautifully?

If you haven't checked out the $200 kitchen and dining room makeovers over at The Vintage Farmhouse here's your chance.

A fresh coat of white paint and a chandelier never looked so chic!

And speaking of fresh white paint...this china hutch by Fresh Vanilla for C is sparkling in a room of powder blues and crisp whites...

White painted furniture is so classic to me. You can take something dark and heavy and with white paint, make it as light as a cloud. Like this sideboard by Knick of Time Interiors

I would be giddy to receive a handmade party invite with a wax seal, like Cinderella opening an invitation to a royal ball! Here's a neat one by The Brilliant Crafty Type

If you love before and afters, check out this cool ottoman makeover at Leone Design

We thank EVERYONE who takes the time to join our party. Now link up below and show us your latest and greatest creations!


If you were featured here, grab a Featured button.  Be sure to like our Facebook pages, since we also post many other favorites there too. If you got featured on Facebook, then feel free to grab a featured button also. 

Now about the party...

You link up on my blog and your link shows up on four blogs. 
 More exposure, less time. 

We are looking for the latest and greatest projects, tutorials, ideas, crafts, recipes, decor, and inspiring stories.  Anything that you are proud to show off.

Cowgirl Up! is the link party that saves you time and brings you inspiration.  Doesn't get any easier than that!

What blogs will your link appear on?  Check us out below!
Linsey with The Farmhouse Porch
Anita with Cedar Hill Ranch
Samantha with Crafty Texas Girls

The four of us are all Texas bloggers, but you don't have to be Texas, country, western, or own horses to participate in Cowgirl Up!  You just need that "can-do", cowgirl spirit!

But no worry, I will be back this evening and check those links out (they look so cool too!) Can't wait to check the other 3 blogs out too.
