Make it Pretty Monday - Week 41

Hello World!  What a weekend we had.  The weather was absolutely beautiful and my sweet husband bought me a new vehicle for my birthday which isn't until April.  Such a sweetie he is!  So, if you missed the Sunday Showcase post it was all about the Top 4 posts of last week's Make it Pretty Monday.  The Showcase can be found here.  

Welcome to Week 41 of:

The Dedicated House
***Don't forget to submit your Before and After completed projects to see who will be in the spotlight on Before and After Wednesday!  It can be any Before and After: a furniture redo, room renovation, decorating change, sewing repurpose, gardening.  This is to help showcase more of your great work!  Email me at: thededicatedhouse@gmail.com with the link to your completed project.  Oh, and by the way it can be a post from the past.  Sometimes our first works never get any notice because we haven't built up a following yet.  Be sure to put in the subject line of the email Before and After Wednesday.***

***The FeatherHen custom pillow cover Giveaway is still open.  Click here to head on over to the Giveaway.***

***Big Announcement for you Party Loving Gals***
This Friday will mark the first party of Anything Blue Friday!
You guessed it.  A party about my favorite color.  Link up anything (family friendly) that has blue in it.  A bird, a flower, a bed, a picture, a quilt, a dress, anything. It can have other colors as well just as long as it has blue in it.  It can also be any shade of blue.  And, no, not every picture of your post must have blue in it.  It can also be a post from the past as well.  Go digging through your "blue" posts and bring them to the party.  I hope you will join me for this new adventure!  She will go live at 8am CDT on Friday.  Don't you think this could be fun?***

Whew, that was a lot of information.  Alright my little social butterflies, onto the party!  Have a pretty week and remember to be kind to one another!  Fear Not!

Toodles,
Kathryn
