Welcome to Week 16 of Cowgirl Up! Link Party . . .

Welcome to Week 16 of 
 Cowgirl Up! Link Party . . .

the party with a cowgirl can-do  spirit!

1 Party, 4 Blogs

Your host this week: Linsey from the Farmhouse Porch

Welcome to the party neighbors! The summer sun is starting to sizzle here in Houston. Is it warming up where you are? If you're anything like me, you've turned your attention to all things patio and garden. You've pulled out the shorts and flip flops and made a bee line for your local garden center to wander the isles. At home the patio furniture is getting fluffed and arranged in preparation for BBQ's and lazy days.

I was excited to see the change of seasons reflected in your links last week. I'd gladly spend an afternoon relaxing on these gorgeous porches...

Need to jazz up some patio furniture cushions? Re-cover them! Daisy Mae Belle shows you how HERE

I'm so in love with this ocean blue painted porch floor by Coastal Cottage Dreams

I could wile away the hours on this simple and sweet porch by Keeping It Cozy, where she shares how to construct these beautiful flower boxes...

Craving a fancier outdoor space? You might be inspired by the gardens surrounding this jaw-dropping castle home in a pictorial tour by 21 Rosemary Lane

I really enjoyed reading about life on a dairy farm on Hymns and Verses, where Doreen shared this cute "Farm Fresh Milk" sign

Leone Design adds time worn patina to a cute little side table. I think the chippy painted box is the icing on the cake, don't you?

Spice up your next summer supper on the patio with this delicious looking Thai Chicken Burger recipe by Desire Empire

and for dessert, via Carolina Country Living...

Thank you to each and every one of you! I seriously agonized over who to feature this week. I also fell in love with a few links that didn't link back to "Cowgirl Up!" and thus weren't eligible for a feature. It made me sad. :( 
If you weren't featured this week, I may have featured you on the Farmhouse Porch's Facebook page. Make sure you check there too!
Hugs and Happy Hunting,

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!
