This week's guest host is a brand new Etsy shop, Flower Lace Prints.  By linking up, you'll be entered to win a 5x7 OR an 8x10 photo of your choice from Flower Lace Prints (up to a $20 value).  Here's a little about the shop:

This is a simple shop with simple, beautiful, quaint photos that would fit any decor. 

I have really made photography a true hobby that gives me such great joy.  I started just taking flower/landscape pictures for fun but I received great response from family and blog friends that I decided to make an Etsy shop.  I took the leap of faith this weekend and hope that others find a photo(s) that could fit their lifestyle, decor, and happiness.

There are some great options with landscapes from West Virginia, Virginia, and Chicago including barns, flowers, and even a few animals thrown in there.  You could also easily create a quick collage for that wall space that you just don't know how to fill!

Now for some of the features from last week!

Food Features
This Mamma Loves...  posted one of the most creative chocolate chip cookie recipes we've seen.  Give this  Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie with Avocado and Pretzels.  That's a lot of yum for one cookie.

These Pumpkin Cinnamon Streusel Buns have us begging for fall.  What a great Saturday morning treat!

DIY Features
Life on Lakeshore Drive made a beautiful Solar Light Lamppost.  It's one of the most fun solar light ideas we've seen!

Art is Beauty turned an old wooden cutting board into a beautiful display piece using some vintage advertising and chalkboard paint.

Ladies Tellin' It Like It Is
