Welcome to Week 53 of The Cowgirl Up!

Welcome to Week 53
The Cowgirl Up! 
Link Party!
1 Party, 5 Blogs  

Our guest host this week is 
 Jamie of Southern Revivals 
I am more excited to be an honorary cowgirl that I think any normal person has a right to be.
See. I'm a southern girl through and through but I haven't always been a country girl. 

And certainly not a cowgirl. These days I live on 10 acres in the country, own 12 chickens, 3 dogs and a rabbit. But if I had my way I'd have cows, horses, sheep and pigs, too.

It may not sound like a glamorous life but one look at how we revive things down south at Southern Revivals and you'll see that even chickens can be divas!

Southern Revivals was born out of pure necessity. A way to save not only the life of old or forgotten furniture but also as a way to save mine. You can read the About Me section of my blog to read my personal story.

Reviving old furniture is so therapeutic and rewarding. Like watching a Phoenix rise from the ashes. A reminder that no matter how bad things get they can always be clean up and made beautiful again. The marks, scratches and scars received along the way add character, tell a story and only serve to enhance their beauty. It's amazing how much like old furniture we are, isn't it?

I would be remiss if I failed to mention that I just plain love purdy pretty things. I feel so blessed to be able to do what I love and add beauty to the lives of others. When I first started Southern Revivals my only hope was that maybe, just maybe, some people would buy my furniture so I'd be able to keep on doing it. And now here I am an honorary cowgirl! Life is amazing!

Thanks for having me as your guest. It truly is an honor.

Now I can't wait to see what everyone else has been up to!  So go ahead! Cowgirl up, Ya'll!
