Cowgirl Up #44

Welcome to Week 44
The Cowgirl Up! Link Party!
1 Party, 4 Blogs  

And this week, we have 5 BLOGS  
and our first GUEST HOST!

Meet Lisa from Fern Creek Cottage
  Hi, my name is Lisa. I am so excited to be guest hosting at Cowgirl Up this week!

Our family just moved to Texas this summer and we are having so much fun exploring this great state! I hope to get a pair of pink boots soon and become an honorary cowgirl. ;)

The white library table was one of the first pieces of furniture I painted and it got me hooked!
My blog Fern Creek Cottage is all about my passion for creating a beautiful home on a budget. My idea of fun is to find "trash" from thrift stores and Craigslist and with a little paint or a glue gun, turn it into treasure!
This is one of the most recent pieces I've painted. A sweet little blue table for my guest room.

My design style loves are cottage style, vintage pieces, and a bit of French flair. I'd love for you to come visit me some time! I'll have to hot cocoa ready!
A little sneak peek of my Christmas decorating. I found some unfinished shutters at the thrift store for $1.99.

Just leave a comment with your name and blog address below If you are selected, you will be introduced in the Cowgirl Up post for that week, and we'll include a link to your blog.
