Welcome to Week 50
The Cowgirl Up! 
Link Party!
1 Party, 5 Blogs  Our guest host this week is  
Yvonne of Stone Gable !

Hello everyone…or should I say HOWDY Y’ALL! I’m puttin’ on my cowboy boots and doing the two-step, happy dance of joy to be an honorary host at COWGIRL UP this week! 

Thanks so much Linsey, Anita, Amanda and Samantha… the ultimate, upscale cowgirls!

I’m Yvonne… a northern girl with a big southern heart! So I feel right at home with the Texas gals!

My blog is StoneGable.

StoneGable is the name of our home… yes, we name our homes!

StoneGable, the blog, was started as a way to connect, teach, and inspire my sweet daughter who had recently married and moved to a different state.  She would call and  ask, “Mommy, how do you do this… or what was in that recipe… or how shall I decorate so-and-so?” It was my idea to give her… and my future generation… a visual journal of all things home… all things StoneGable… and a big dose of love along with it!

After three years of blogging, StoneGable’s goals have expanded to include my wonderful readers too! I want to create a place that inspires others to live beautifully and creatively, embracing life and learning to fill their homes with love and joy! When you come to StoneGable, I hope you feel like you are visiting a good  friend!

StoneGable is all about inspiring creative living…

If you come by for a visit on Sunday evening or Monday, you will find my weekly menu and ON THE MENU MONDAY, a weekly linky party for all foodies… and anyone who need some tasty inspiration! Come on over and join the culinary fun!

I am a big DYI’er! If you drop by StoneGable on Wednesday evening or Thursday, you can be inspired by great TUTORIALS TIPS AND TIDBITS! TTT is my second linky party!  I always say, “Show up and show off your creativity… any tidbit will do!”

Besides cooking and DYI projects, I have a passion for setting tables… 

decorating …

and much more.  Stop by StoneGable…my front door is always open to friends… old and new!

Thanks again COWGIRLS!

Now let’start partying!!!
