Guess Who’s a Guest Host?

Guess Who’s a Guest Host?


It’s me here.

Two posts in one day…..seriously.  You’d think it was 2013 or something. 🙂

But there’s a really good reason.

See that blank space with the question mark?

Thistlewood Farm KariAnne

Just insert this smiling face in there. 

I am so excited to be here with these four amazing bloggers….Amanda and Anita and Linsey and Samantha.

They picked me!

Can you believe it?  I’m the guest host…..and I don’t even have a pair of boots!

I’m not sure what to do first.  Lasso up some vittles?  Put on a pot of chili for the ranch hands?  Saddle up my horse to check the fences?

Or sing Yellow Rose of Texas.

Maybe not the best of ideas…..I want us all to still be friends. 🙂

Here’s Anita with all the party details.


Here’s the features from last week’s party selected by


Anita of  
Cedar Hill Ranch

White Lace Cottage shared her lovely white kitchen

The Decorating Diaries shared projects with aged paper, how cool is that?

Design Dreams by Anne recapped her favorite projects of the year

Betsy Spert shared her guest room, but don’t expect to stay there!

She’s not keen on overnight guests.

(Betsy, if I were your overnight guest, I promise I would stay in this room and not bother you until until afternoon.)

The Backyard Bungalow showed up a darling bedspring wreath, can you say CREATIVE?

One Creative Couple shared their top posts of 2012

Now about this week’s party… You link up on my blog and your link shows up on FIVE 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.
What blogs will your link appear on? Check us out below!
Linsey with The Farmhouse Porch
Anita with Cedar Hill Ranch

KariAnne of Thistlewood Farms

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!

    Projects came to a screeching halt at Thanksgiving time due to us both working 12-14 hours a day through Christmas. I had 1001 projects planned for while we were on vacation but didn’t do much except relax and play with the kids. Maybe I could do a post about how to snuggle on the couch with your kindle??
