The Weekend Retreat Link Party #52

130 Party Collage Final

We are rocking it!!   We blew right through our record last week!   I know it’s not just me, but we had some amazing links this past week.   It was hard for me to pick a few to feature.  Thank you for coming back each week and helping us share the word. I’m looking forward to this week to see what you have all been up to.


Featured Blogger

Each week we’ll be doing a Featured Blog Spot to help introduce you guys to the different bloggers that link up with us! We’ll be including a main photo along with a few of our favorite posts with links back to their blog so you can stop by, check them out, and say hi while you’re there! This week our featured blogger is Alexis from Persia Lou. If you aren’t already reading Persia Lou, you are totally missing out. I’ve been a huge fan of hers since for a long time and honestly I had a really hard time picking out which posts to share with you all because I wanted to share way more than three. She has some of the cutest crochet projects ever (her great-grandmother taught her) along with all sorts of other crafts, recipes, and home decor ideas.

* Featured Blog Spot will be chosen at random from bloggers that have linked up at The Weekend re-Treat!


Awesome Features

Thank you to everyone who linked up last week. It was even tougher this week to pick features because you all blew us away and linked well over 500 projects!. We ended up with a great combination of crafts, DIY projects, yummy food and a few more Valentine’s Day ideas.
