I'm here I promise! I know I have not been around a lot lately but it is the end of the school year and so there has been a lot going on. I have also been working on finishing up 3 large projects and accepted a custom job!:0 I promise soon to be around more often.
Until then here are some fabulous features from last weeks THT! Thank you to all who turned out. Each and every week the links just keep getting better and better!

Be Book Bound shared her tutorial on how to make your very own herb crates. They turned out awesome and are now on my list of things to do! 

The Velvet Door  shared with us her amazing new headboard that she ordered off of Amazon! Her entire bedroom is just gorgeous.

Art is Beauty showed us the process she went thru to achieve a gorgeous new DIY stair runner! This pulled me in right away because The Hubster and I are almost ready to jump in and tackle our stairs.

Our Prairie Home made over a tired old china cabinet and gave it a fabulous new life! This piece would have been hard to let go!;)

As always thank you to all who partied last week! I am so truly honored to have such talent partying at my place! If you were featured please feel free to grab the "I've Been Featured" button!:) I have the newly updated button with html code on my sidebar! 

 What would be a HUGE help and encourage more comments not just from me but others as well would be for everybody to take off their required verification codes for leaving a comment. This seems to take just a few seconds of time but when you have to do it on 30 or more blogs it takes up a TON of time. Last week most everybody had turned off their Word Verification which made it so much easier for me to stop by everybody's links! Thank you!

Now on to this weeks party! 
As with all parties there are the normal rules. You must link back to From My Front Porch To Yours in your THT POST. Just common courtesy. If ya don't link back ya don't get to party. Only link up to your Treasure Hunt Thursday post and NOT your blog homepage. Please No advertising and PLEASE NO MORE than 3 links from the SAME party goer. Also NO MORE linking up to your own link parties. I am seeing more and more link ups of just people promoting their own linky parties. I know it takes time to go back and make a separate post to join the party but it is just the polite thing to do. If you find your post deleted it is not because I am a meany, I just have to make sure the rules are being followed. You can save some of your posts for the following weeks party!Please only link up new posts and not posts that you linked up the week before.Also be sure to visit at least the link before you and after you to just say Hi! It makes partying all the more fun! If you are new around here I would love it if ya become a follower!:)

A New Decorating Book!

I recently purchased a new decorating book. Can you guess which one it is?
I finally broke down and purchased Segreto Secrets to Finishing Beautiful Interiors by Leslie Sinclair. Actually The Hubster told me I could buy it for Mothers Day. I had been drooling over it since it came out a few months ago but just never could bring myself to buy it so thanx hubby! 
Yes this book is $85! What do you get for $85? You get 300 pages full of wonderful eye candy!! 
Leslie packed her book full of beautiful spaces.
I could spend hours looking thru every page. It actually took two sittings for me to go thru it all.
Her finishes are beyond amazing!
Leslie signs every book she sells so this will definitely be a wonderful keepsake!
One of the fun things about this book is that a few weekends back Sharon from Mrs. Hines Class & I were able to meet Leslie at The Pink Ribbon House. Leslie is just the most down to earth sweetest lady ever! So is Sharon!!:)
 Let me add that this is one of the WORST pictures EVER and Sharon and I almost died when we saw it! We did not want to share it but we decided to keep it real and the next time we meet up we will get a better pic of us together even if it takes all day long!;)
Linking up to the following linky parties:
Wow Us Wednesdays
Cowgirl Up
Table Top Tuesday 
Inspiration Friday
Feathered Nest Friday

P.s. Can you do me a favor? I made all of my pictures XLarge in blogger except for the last one which is just large. Can you please tell me which is better to view for y'all? Things look completely different on other peoples monitors. For me on our Mac the Xlarge is just the right size but I am afraid for others they may be larger than life. Thanx in advance for the input!:)
