What's Up Wednesday's {Link Party} & Features

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. Mr. Woodsy and I spent ours up north visiting family. We always spend our Independence Day's beach side. This year it was up north in two very busy cities; Philadelphia and New York City. No rest and relaxation for us... we hit the pavement running. While in Philly we did a historical walking tour, visited both the Constitution Center and the Liberty Bell. In NYC we were able to score tickets to see Spider Man --Turn off the Dark (AMAZING) and another off-broadway show which I'll talk about at a later date! We also got to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island among other things. I can't wait to share pictures from our trip as soon as I'm done sorting through the 500+ (and then of course editing them). We got in yesterday afternoon and we've been tending to our house, our selves, and our little pup who missed us dearly. On the way home we were talking about all of the small projects we want to accomplish this month i.e., the craft room chair makeover, our master bedroom frame, recovering the bench, sewing curtains and making valances for our bedroom, a few secretive wood working projects, and mastering shirring so I can make cool new skirts and dresses for summer! But first, I guess I need to go pick up my sewing machine from being serviced! That's first on my chore list for this coming weekend. 

*I apologize if I did not comment on link party post during the past 2 weeks. I'm trying to slowly get caught up! :)

Here are the top 4 features (+ the new readers choice {there was a tie}) from last week. If you were one of the lucky 6 please make sure you grab a featured button and display it proudly (somewhere) on your blog! Make sure you stop by our Facebook page because we've started highlighting a few of the featured projects on there too!

Now that we are starting to really think about our bedroom I really want to get rid of our plain lamps and make some awesome ruffle shades... well maybe just switch out the drum.... I love this!
