My Summer Threads

Drum roll's Splish Splash Blog Bash theme is Summer Threads! I thought I would awkwardly show you a little bit of my own summer style (or lack of style). I don't have a lot of pictures of what I've been wearing lately, so bear with me, this is an eclectic bunch of photos!



So there you have it, a taste of my summer wardrobe. I pretty much wear dresses everyday with big pieces of jewelry and wedges or boots. I may not be wearing much of anything starting tomorrow...we have several days of 104 degrees and 100% humidity facing us. Ugh.

Don't forget to stop in tomorrow for our EPIC GIVEAWAY!!!! 

Oh! and check out my blogger girls below...maybe their pictures will be less cheesy than mine:)

Wanna Guest Post?

Help! I need a few volunteers to write a guest post for me next week!!
As many of you know, I will have my toes in the water, ass toes in the sand next week in the Clearwater/St. Pete area of FL. Let's be honest, blogging will be low on my priority list when I'm sipping tropical drinks and working on my tan....

If you are interested in writing a post for me that fits in with the general vibe of Shabby Sweet Tea, shoot me an email or leave a comment.

Thanks y'all!!

Summer DIY: Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Makeover

 Welcome back to Splish Splash Blog Bash, hosted by Tattered and Inked.  Today's theme is Summer DIY, so I thought I would share with you a set of furniture that I recently revamped. 

Here is a picture of the original spray stain:

To freshen up this furniture, I wiped down all 3 pieces with a damp rag, painted them with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and used clear wax as a protective top coat. I chose Paris Grey and Old White. For distressing, I used a fine grit sanding block. 

And guess what? They are both for sale! Nothing wrong with a little summer cash!

Hop on over to the blogs below. They have great DIY projects going on!
