Brag Monday – French Butterfly Chalk Paint Dresser & Silhouette Cloche

It’s time for Brag Monday #175! Once again I’m bragging about two more projects from the last Brag Monday party.

French Butterfly Chalk Paint Dresser Annie Sloan

This weeks DIY pick is: This Painted French Butterfly Dresser created by Kristen from Sophia’s Decor!  Kristen used the French Butterfly Printable, and some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, to transform this into a French Chic Masterpiece!  Be sure and pop on over to her blog to see the before pics!

Silhouette Cloche

This weeks Handmade Craft pick is:  This adorable Silhouette Cloche created by Nicole at Krek Wak Wou!  For this project, Nicole used  the Baby Silhouette.  Be sure and check out her blog to see the full vignette!

Party Rules:

  • Your project must include at least one graphic from my site
  • Link back - (Using a link to give credit for my image is fine)
  • By linking up you agree to allow me to feature your project, either here or on my DIY Blog or my Craft Blog
  • Don’t link the same project up for more than one week
  • Etsy & Other shop sellers – Feel free to link up, just make sure you give credit on your product page, by including my url 
  • I only feature those who linked back to me. Fair is fair!

P.S. If you see that your link has been deleted, it’s because your project did not include an image from this site. Hey ..that’s the whole point of the party silly!


  1. Thanks so much for hosting! Love the features –
    Hope you have a graphically wonderful week!

  2. Thanks so much for hosting! I think it’s my first time here!

  3. Hi Karen…..I am Helen from Athens Greece. I have already sent you another message some time ago and you encouraged me to take part on Brag Monday. Today was my first attempt but since my Knowledge and experience about computer is not good, I have made a mistake because the first time I used “blogpost” instead of “blogspot” which is mine…..ha ha ha (I am an old woman…). If you can do something to canceal N0 21 on Brag Monday….because I can’t…I am sorry for the mistake…thank you very much…love and Kisses…

  4. Dear Karen,
    I love the opportunity you give us every Monday and I always link back and give credit to you as stated in the rules. But every week there is a link to an entirely unrelated photography site. I know you will never choose it to feature but I feel that after all this time you could somehow block it. Rules is rules!

    • Sigh. I know exactly which one you mean Cheryl. Many times I have deleted it, but some weeks I slack off. There’s no way to block it altogether unfortunately.

  5. Thanks for featuring my butterfly dresser Karen! I just love that graphic…and many, many others you have shared with all of us over the years :)

    Have a great week,


  6. Thank you very much for featuring my silhouette cloche, Karen! I am truly honored! Of course I could not make it without your great graphics!
    Greetings from Holland!
    X Nicole

  7. Karen,

    It’s been a while since I’ve been here to party – it’s good to be back! Thanks for hosting!

  8. Hi Karen! thank you for let me show what I do with your images, have a wonderful day

  9. Hi Karen, Love the features this week. Thank you for hosting. Have a great week.
    Hugs, Celestina Marie

  10. Karen, you are a dangerous woman. Dangerous to my time as I must read you every day… and then on Mondays you lead me to new blogs that I must also then begin to follow daily, and pin boards I must follow, and FB pages I must follow. Dangerous to my check book because I must then make said projects or feel like a complete failure watching all these other marvelous bloggers get their craft on dailly. I must run to Hobby Lobby and Lowes and Office Depot and Joannes and Michaels and all the antique/jusk stores to make all the fabulous creations that I am inspired by, hence depleting my bank account and the college fund of my children. Dangerous becuase I then can’t sleep at night becuase all these marvelouse Ideas keep churning in my head ALL NIGHT LONG! Dangerous to my family life because dinner is late and the kids were picked up late or the husband is just not being paid attention to (or the dog must cross her legs once again) because I need to finish reading one more blog or painting one more design. And now you are very dangerous because I feel that I now must figure out how (for a computer challenged soul) to write my own blog s that I too can show off my lovelies inspirde by the Fairy of my heart. Yes Karen, you are dangerous…and I love you.

  11. Love it all !!!! OMGOSH what great ideas .. Love the butterfly dresser LOTS

  12. I’m finally dipping my toe in the water…I linked up to your party! I’m not very good with all the new tech, but I’m just holding my head above water on that. All these gorgeous projects and beautiful sites, it’s kind of scary putting myself out there, as I’m not even in the same league! Your party goer’s give me so much inspiration week after week, and you, day by day, I thought maybe it was time to stop cheerleading from the sidelines and join the party…thanks for having me!

  13. Karen, I don’t but should say (more often) how much I DO appreciate what you do for me (all of us) with your blog the kind, caring and awesome giving of your time and talent. so here is a Bg thank you! Suz
