Welcome to Week 8 of Cowgirl Up! Link Party . . .

Welcome to Week 8 of 
 Cowgirl Up! Link Party . . .

the party with a cowgirl can-do  spirit!

1 Party, 4 Blogs

Hi friends! Linsey from the Farmhouse Porch here! It's beginning to feel like spring in my neck of the blog. Here are some of the fresh ideas that caught my eye from last week's "Cowgirl Up!" party...

I have the a good way! I'm loving this robins' egg wreath  by Uncommon Design Online


MISS FLIBBERTIGIBBET shows us how wax can add the perfect finishing touch to a painted hutch. Didn't this turn out fabulous?


Here we have a charming example of cottage DIY artwork. This collage style piece looks great with a robins' egg blue and brown classic color combo. By Noting Grace


I love jar dispensers don't you? I always forget to make them but after seeing the neat ones Anne made at Design Dreams by Anne it's on the top of my to do list!


Spring will certainly send you out into the yard for a project or two soon. Samm at Little House in the Big D shows us how to turn a small forgotten side yard into a lovely  landscaped space. I just wish I looked this good while gardening...check out those guns! : )


Let's see what you've got for us this week!


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!

Hi Linsey. I found your blog on my friend Lisa’s blog today.

And I also found your link party. How fun! My husband’s family is from Texas (Lubbock and Houston) and my mom lived in Allen for several years.

This week I am sharing 2 fun recipes…

(1) Super delicious sautéed lemon pepper Brussels Sprouts. My kids LOVE this and eat it up. The perfect spring dish.

(2) Beet picked eggs. My FAVORITE! These are so good and so fun for spring.

Have a great week!
Be Well,
