Sunday Showcase from Make it Pretty Monday

Hello World!  Yesterday my sweet husband bought me a new ride for my birthday!  He has been nothing but a blessing to me!  Love, love, love him!  Okay, enough about me.  I've been wanting to change up the features for Make it Pretty Monday for quite a while.  Don't worry, you will still get to be Queens for at least a day.  But, since the party has grown by leaps and bounds, I wanted to showcase more of the amazing talent from Make it Pretty Monday.  So, on Sundays, I will now showcase the top 4 views of the previous week's party.  On Mondays, there will still be all of the list of Queens, just not the Most Views slot.  With that said, let me introduce you to the:

4th Place for the Most Views
at Make it Pretty Monday
Pretty Dru has amazed us yet again.  She restyled her bedroom vanity (which by the way is absolutely gorgeous) wanting a more simple look for Spring.  Take a walk on over to 
The Country Farm Home to see what she has been up to.  

3rd Place for the Most Views

Pretty Maria Elena created a lovely Spring Vignette in her kitchen.  Spring has definitely sprung at Maria Elena's!  To see all of the pretty details, pop on over to 

2nd Place for the Most Views

Pretty Katie has yet another winner with a post dedicated to all of her Dollar Store Crafts.  Head on over to The Crafty Blog Stalker to see all of her crafty skills at work.

Pretty Carol showed off her practically perfect "Momma Cave" where all of her magic happens.  Scoot on over to An Oasis in the Desert and get ready to be amazed!

Congratulations ladies on being in the First Sunday Showcase from Make it Pretty Monday.  I will also create a Pinterest board entitled Sunday Showcase Features and pin from your website.  Also, all features will be posted on The Dedicated House's Facebook page and Hometalk page with credit given to your blog.  

Now onto more business.  I want to turn my Wednesday post into a Before and After post of your latest and greatest work.  It can be a furniture redo, a complete room redo, gardening redo, and a sewing repurpose.  It must have a before shot and of course an after shot.  I will spotlight one blog each week showing off your before and after.  Please email me the links to any of your before and after posts for the new series at  Please put in the subject line:  Before and After Wednesday

Have a sweet rest of your Sunday and remember to pop back in tomorrow morning 8am CDT for Make it Pretty Monday.  Also, don't forget to throw your hat in the ring for the FeatherHen custom pillow cover giveaway.  Click here to go straight to the giveaway.  Off I go to work finish up the chest.  Remember to be kind to one another!  Fear Not!
