Linky party Idea…Opinions Please!

Hey Yall!  I’ve got another idea about a linky party and not sure if it’s been done yet or not.  I was wondering if there was a “what would you do?” linky party specifically for small vignette or small design area ideas.  I’ve seen a similar idea party that was hosted for a while that was for whole room makeovers but only featured one person at a time.  Not sure if that one is still going on but I’ve got a bit of a different spin on it and would like to see a linky party instead of a feature party.

A few weeks ago I posted about an area I am wanting to improve but am at a loss on ideas.  I have many things that I will not change in that area above my couch but am looking for ideas suggestions to work within those parameters.  I got only one comment!  Seriously?

I also had a blog virus at the time, did not connect that post to any linky party and since I am not a big (popular) blogger, figured all of that contributed to only getting one comment.    I’m not sulking about that but am kinda bummed I didn’t get a few more ideas.  You know ideas that I might try to copycat or might also spur a fresh idea for that one area in question.  
Do you ever feel this way too?  Like you could use a little help from a few friends?  I know most of you are so creative and probably rarely ever come to a stand still on on ideas but maybe, just maybe are there more of you out there like me, right?

Would you like to come to a linky party where you could link up your “brain drain area” and get a little help from friends?  Where you could also browse through several other linkers to the party and offer up your ideas and suggestions for those little areas they are stumped on.  Whole room ideas could be allowed but it would be mainly for those smaller areas or even projects that you have a start on but are stumped about how to proceed.  Our outdoor and garden areas would be allowed too.    It would be a real “what would you do?” linky party.

So, what do you know?  Is there a party like this already going on that I need to link to or do I need to start this ball rolling?  Do you think it is a good idea?  Do you see yourself ever participating in something like this?  Am I the only one who needs help getting out of dream world sometimes and into action?  Come on!  Talk to me!  LOL!

  1. I was away on my trip when you posed your question or I would have attempted an answer, but I went back to see what your dilemma was or is. Now I'll try to describe my suggestions. I would do a large painting over the sofa with rich colors that would go with your furniture, & maybe add candle sconces on either side. For the coffee table, I would maybe paint the one that holds your candle & then layer it on top of a larger tray of a different material. I have an old silver-plated tray that I love for this purpose. Then you could add shells or deco spheres around your candle & have a few on the larger tray (like they spilled out of the smaller one). I'd placed that at one end of your coffee table & stack some books on the other end with a nice potted plant (real or faux) on top. I really like the current trend toward covering books with matching or coordinating paper (plain or a simple design). Scrapbook paper can work for this unless the books are too big. Anyway, that's what I would try. Hope this helps.

    Now for today's question — absolutely, I would be totally interested in a party like that. Some times you just need one little idea. I'm in!

  6. Interesting idea. There is so much creative spirit out there in blog land and we all seem to love to lend our opinion. Why don't you link this post to this week's Seasonal Sundays and see if you get a bit more feed back?

  7. I am not much of a decorator, so I don't think I would be of help for this party. Cooking and tablescaping and gardening. I don't even do vignettes! My mantel is always the same unless it is a holiday.
