Treasure Hunt Thursday #85 & Highlights

Welcome to THT everybody! Happy 12/12/12 day!:) I hope that your week is going well. I know things are rather crazy with the holidays upon us. I can not believe we are less than two weeks out before Christmas. We had a fabulous turn out last week! I can't thank you enough for taking the time to party at my place! I saw a TON of mantels while browsing all the links.
If you linked up your mantle to THT last week and get a chance be sure to link it up to the mantel party so that readers can view all the holiday mantels in one place!:) The mantel party will stay open till midnight on the 31st.

Now on to my picks from last weeks party. It is always so hard to choose.

Debra over at Common Ground shared with us how she accomplished her faux chalkboard!  
Christy over at Our Southern Home showed us her amazing Christmas mantel.
Sonny from 155 Dream Lane shared her gorgeous foyer all decked out for the holidays.
And the gals over at Be Book Bound shared with us ideas on wrapping all those gifts we bought and are dreading pulling out.
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 and remember if your link has had the most visits you will get featured on Tuesdays! If you are new around here I would love it if ya become a follower!:)
