Wordy Wednesday

I was feeling kinda sentimental today and thought I'd share some of my pins on my Words board with you all.  (Some are hilarious too, as being me I can't ever be sentimental for very long!)  Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Yeah, this one is the MOST sentimental of all (can you 
hear the sarcasm in my voice? LOL)

Don't ya love it?

LOVE this one...

Aren't those Swedes smart?!?

I have loved this quote ever since I've lived...

Isn't this one exciting?



And that one, my friends is the one I want you to remember today....
Isn't HE awesome?

Happy Wednesday!

Turquoise Lovin' #2

To say I'm excited about the results of this Turquoise Lovin' party is an understatement.  WOW!!  I am SO happy that SO many of you linked up your turquoise projects. I have had nothing but GORGEOUS eye candy to look at for a week now and I can't get enough of it!  What beautiful turquoise projects you have all created.  And all I have to say is that I can't wait for round two!

But first, we have to feature at least a few of your fun links!  I have to admit I had an AWFUL time choosing which projects to feature, so just know that if I could have featured ALL of them I would have.  But for lack of space, here are a few that caught my eye!

Look at this gorgeous block quilt from Just So Sassy...

I liked how the coloring turned out on this one!

A store at the mall of America...framed and all!

Turquoise Lovin' #1

I am thrilled to introduce my very first Turquoise Lovin' party to you.  If you've been keeping up with my posts in the last week, you know what I'm talking about.  But if you haven't I will explain!

Turquoise Lovin' is going to be a linky party (every Tuesday) ALL about turquoise.  And if you've spent any time at all at Sweet Little Gals, you will know just how much I LOVE turquoise.  ANYTHING turquoise!!  I have it all over my house; blankets, pillows, bedspreads, pictures, flowers, decor, yes it's ALL over!

And Turquoise Lovin' is your chance to share YOUR turquoise stuff.  Your posts can be ANYTHING related to turquoise.  (Please no Etsy shops) You can link up your turquoise projects, Pinterest posts, posts about shoes, turquoise oceans, buildings, weddings, photography, anything that you have posted about that is turquoise.  I am hoping to see lots of links to lots of amazing turquoise posts.

And each week I will share with you some turquoise things that I am lovin'.  (A follow is not required but would be much appreciated!) Also, remember if you link up to the party you are giving your permission for me to feature your creations.

This week I found some WAY cool turquoise things on Pinterest that I want to share.  Look how gorgeous they are. 

LOVE these stairs!

This is SO delightful

Love this sunroom

Shabby chic door

Love this turquoise wall I recently found right by my house!

Now it's your turn!  Link up your turquoise lovin' and I can't

I also found some fun projects while browsing pinterest and wanted to share of course!

I would love to make one of these for my girls.
A little helper tower.  SO safe, for toddlers especially!
