June Cottage Color Party!

Today Begins the week long Color of the Month party here at ECS Blogsapot for the Month of June.
When you think of June you think of weddings.......roses......so, the color associated with June is WHITE.
That's right. Let's see your white collections of Ironstone, or pics of your wedding. How about that gorgeous white rose blooming in the garden.  Well your cottage garden filled with white larkspur, candytuft, shasta daisies, and coralbelles would be perfect. Are you working on a creation or design that is all shades of white! Or, do do white in you decor? We'd love to see it!

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 Here 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
