The Last Too-lah Roo.......................

.......................for the showin of the Green during the.............................

    That's right, it's the last Monday of March and it's time show our love of things Green
How about showin you collection of Jadite, or dicontinued pattern of 70's Corelle.
Of course there is the Easter grass springin up all over in fields and yards. Maybe you have a painting of a Springy landscape? There is always enough time to show off those St Patrick decor you haven't put away yet, or maybe, you've been working on a green creation. Whatever it is...we'd love to see it. Monday, tomorrow, kicks off the Cottage Colors Party and runs all week so come it's your, or really our lucky week!!

The Linky is up and running. It's easy to use. After you have "published" your Cottage Color post on your blog, stop by Etsy Cottage Style and put your name and the permalink to your post into the Linky sign up box.

What is a permalink? A permalink is the direct link to your post, as opposed to your general blog address. When someone visits Etsy Cottage Style during the week and clicks on your link, they will be taken directly to your Cottage Color post instead of having to search through your most recent posts to find it.

There are two ways to get your permalink. One way is to click on the title of your Cottage Color post, then right click on the URL address showing in the address field at the top and select Copy. Then paste this link into Linky which will be available here. Click on "Enter" and you are all done! You will see your permalink posted. :-) Or, another way to add your link for Linky is to right click on the title of your Cottage Color post, select "copy shortcut" and then paste this link into the URL box on the Linky sign-up.

Please remember this is a blog get-together to share vintage finds, collections, or how you utilize vintage items in your designs. Selling sites will be removed. Selling sites are welcome every first Monday of the month at Market Mondays

We will be having a party for each season. The summer party will start the first day of summer in June and the fall party will be the first day of fall in September.

Here are the simple rules.....
Post the party badge below on your blog.

*permalink is the URL to the actual post--not just your blog. You can find this after you publish your post, click "view post" instead of "view blog". then copy and paste the URL address in the link box.
