The Girls of Summer

Who are these bikini babes behind the Hot Fun in the Summertime link party?  Well there is me of course and I'm not a bikini babe unless you want to lose your lunch.  But in my mind the co-hosts are and they are taking a sun tan by the surf, little umbrella drink in hand.

If you haven't been over to Miss Flibbertigibbet's place do so.  In fact stop over at DebbieDoos first and take a tour of Mrs. F.'s awesome house.  You'll want it, but it comes full of kids, or the Mongolian Horde as she calls 'em.

Miss F. makes summery stuff like this.........
Beach Door Deco
And this.......
Shutter Candle Holders
Then there is Little Miss Maggie.  She is a creating machine.  She painted this huge sign on an old door......
Jules Belin Sign

She also made a rag tied table cloth.  I almost think I could make that.  Almost.

Holly at BellaNest is cute as a bug, and might just be the only 
Hot Fun in the Summertime hostess you really find in a bikini. 
She took a collage frame and turned it into a cool piece of summer wall art.

She can make a chalkboard, attach fabric flowers and draw flip flops with the best of 'em....

Rounding out the Girls of Summer is Karen from SomewhatQuirky

Look what she does with old dressers no one wants.  

And I'm not even gonna show you how she fixed up this chair, you have to click over to her blog to see the after.  She created a weaved fabric back. Admit it, you wouldn't of given that chair a second glance.

There 'ya have it, the link party hostesses.  I hope you will stop over and say hi, tell them Bliss sent you.  Stop in every Friday in July to link up on one of the host blogs and your link will show up on all five.  I'll be posting the features from this weeks party on Thursday.
