Welcome to Week 18 of Cowgirl Up! Link Party . . .

Welcome to Week 18 of 
 Cowgirl Up! Link Party . . .
the party with a cowgirl can-do  spirit!
1 Party, 4 Blogs

Your host this week is
Anita from Cedar Hill Ranch

Hi Ya'll!!  I just put my little baby (okay she's 16, but she's still my baby) on a plane for a church mission trip to San Francisco.   I got at least 3 phone calls from her, and a text that said "miss you," all before her plane even took off!!  Oh well, I guess she was feeling a little anxious to be going so far from home without us for an entire week.   One of the calls was to ask if I put the bottle of ibuprofen in her bag.  I said that it was in there, and asked if she had a headache, "No," came the reply, "I just wanted to be sure it was packed, just in case."

I have a few projects in mind to work on while she is gone.  The house will be incredibly quiet for an entire week, but THAT, I can handle.  

I'm sharing my favorites, but could have easily featured 30 projects.  I just had to force myself to narrow the list down.  So, here are my picks for the week.

Town and Country Living shared some gorgeous front doors.

Uncommon Designs showed us how to make vintage-looking crates.

Betsy Speert gave us a peek at her awesome living room.

I love this Frenchy chair redo by Zoom In 24

Northern Nesting redid her table without paint but there's paint in there somewhere; she shows us where she displayed her new painting from guess who?  (Linsey from Farmhouse Porch)  

Swede Dreamer made me thirsty with lots of beverage recipes for summer

So what if you aren't as talented an artist as Linsey? Well Remodelando has some ideas on how to make create artwork without even lifting a paint brush.

I'm a sucker for a French chair, and 551 East reupholstered hers, and shares tutorials on how we can do it too. 

Desire Empire said shared a recipe for chocolate and gluten-free slices, yum

Revisionary Life helped her daughter decorate a new apartment on a budget - Bohemian style

Faith, Hope and Cherrytea invited us to her wonderful tea
