Let's party! Welcome to Week 49 of The Cowgirl Up! Link Party!

Let's party!  
Welcome to Week 49
The Cowgirl Up! 
Link Party!
1 Party, 5 Blogs  Our guest host this week is  
Angie from Swede-Dreams !
Hello Cowgirl Up readers! I'm so excited to be sharing in the party today with the girls as your "honorary cowgirl"! I am a southerner and a huge fan of cowboy boots and country music, so I feel right at home here with you all. My name is Angie and I'm the author of Swede and style inspirations from a Swedish southern gal.

 The story of my blog began a little over a year ago when I was looking for another outlet to bring more recognition to my Etsy shop, Swede 13 Inspirations. It began as a way to showcase my love of all things vintage, my paintings and my photography.

 Keep reading to see the "Cowgirl Up Link party"

 I describe my shop as a mix of shabby, french, vintage and cottage. For many years, I was selling my vintage finds and treasures in local antique malls until I discovered the wonderful world of Etsy. I can't say enough good things about this amazing community of artists who not only support, but also truly inspire one another on a daily basis. The idea to start a blog in conjunction with my shop came from a fellow antiquing friend who gave me that push to make it happen. 

 My blog has become a place to not only showcase my projects and transformations, but also a venue to share my inspirations. Swede Dreams is my avenue to share my love for art, beauty, decor, fashion, food, travel and entertainment. There's a little bit of something for everyone. 

So if you are into antiquing, junking, painting, decor, country music, chocolate, dreams of Paris or days at the beach, I think you might enjoy a daily dose of Swede Dreams.

Thank you so much for having me as your guest host today and for the Cowgirl Up team allowing me to share a slice of my world with you.
Warm blessings to you all, Angie {Swede Dreams}
