Simply Neutrals #30


Christmas ornament by Dorthe of DenLilleLade


Hello dear friends,

It's time for Simply Neutrals again!
Boy, did that week fly by fast!

Thank you all so much for joining in last time, both in linking up and in visiting each other! I was really surprised to see so much enthusiasm, I had no idea a neutrals party was so dearly missed. It's so wonderful to see everyone gathering again, it makes me really happy and hope it does the same for you. And a warm welcome also to our new participants, it's wonderful to see you joining in!

Today I'm sharing with you some Christmas joy I received a couple of weeks ago. And since they're almost all in neutral colours I thought it would be perfect for Simply Neutrals too.

Thank you so much dear friends, you truly made me a very happy girl!
(And let me tell you, the ladies didn't know, but sheep and owls are among my very favourite animals!)

Now let me share with you the gorgeousness that was linked up last week at Simply Neutrals. As always, I can't choose who to feature. (This makes me wonder how on earth I'm going to fulfill such a task in future posts...) I was just too grateful and happy to see everyone gathering and sharing. So here is to you all! I chose one photo of each linked up post to share with you here today. In no particular order:


Simply Neutrals Tuesday features
beautiful vintage style collages by Jesse, Nancy, and Suzy

handmade beauty to wear or hang by Marie, Diane, and Lilla

beautiful home decor/interior by Sheryl, Masha, Dorthe, and Rhonda

On to this week's party!


SIMPLY NEUTRALS #30


First of all: beware that when you link up to this party, I assume that you agree on the photos of the blog post you linked up optionally being featured on the next Simply Neutrals party on AppleApricot blog. If you do not agree with that, then please do NOT link up.

I will always ask the visitors of AppleApricot to pin from your original websites and not from my party blog post. If and how there will be features and if the SNT party will be held regularly all depends on how well the party is received.




To join the party, please keep the following things in mind:

1) Please link only to the blogpost that contains the photo(s) you want to share, and not to your blog's homepage.

2) Kindly link back to AppleApricot by putting a link to my blog in your blogpost.

Of course you're most welcome to use the blog button of Simply Neutrals Tuesday as well
(which can be found in the sidebar of my blog)

3) Link ups to both new and older blog posts are welcome.
Of course it would be nice if you link up to a new or recent blog post, but if there is something from the archives you'd really want to link up here, then please feel welcome to do so.

4) You can link up from your blog, but if you do not have a blog but would love to link up from your instagram or other social media account, that's perfectly fine too.
Beware though, that may be not everyone can come visit and/or leave you a comment there.

5) Please take time to visit some of the other link ups and send them some love.
The most recently added link ups will show in the list first.

Time for the link up!

xx Wen

  1. Hello Dear Wen, What a glorious feast of loveliness displayed above, by everybody. I notice how my neutrals are not as neutral as everyone else's, and I am working on it - I do hope this week's post is closer to the mark! What gorgeous gifts you received for Christmas. I love those messages: peace to all, seek stillness, capture precious moments in your heart.
    Have a happy week,
    Hugs from Jesse XXX

    1. Hello sweetie, thank you so much for linking up again today! Please don't worry about the neutrals you shared, they are perfectly fitting and I'm happy you shared them with us. About the messages on the Christmas gifts: they are beautiful, aren't they? And all so fitting for where I am in my life at the moment, so complementary to each other also. Big hugs to you sweetie, may your week be filled with love and sunshine, xx

  6. Ah, what is it about the neutrals that is so appealing? It's quite mysterious to me the response they call forth in my perception of them. They are restful to the eye, serene and yet with interesting details. I just love them and have for ages. I'm so happy to have found your blog and to view the Tuesday neutrals posts.

    Thanks for featuring them, Wen.

  10. Hi dear Wen,
    didn't know the SNT was weekly, so I posted something new and old and hope it is ok.
    Didn't want to miss it:)
    Oh, I love the gifts you received for Christmas.
    Have a lovely week.
    Hugs and love,
    Marie

    1. Hello dear Marie, I didn't know how SNT was going to be received again, so I wanted to see the response first before deciding how much time and effort I would put into it. But seeing the enthusiasm of everyone, I'm very positive we will be able to have a weekly party :) Linking up old creations and/or blog posts is perfectly fine, Marie. I know there are so many beautiful neutrals to be found in our archives that deserve to be brought back to attention. So please don't hesitate to share older work too! Hugs xx

    2. Hi Wen and Marie,
      What a great idea to post old blogposts too. So much effort goes into our creations, and into our blogs, and it's good to think more people might get to see these. :)
      Hugs to you both,
      Jesse XX

    3. Absolutely, Jesse! There is so much beauty in your archives, please feel free to share it again in the party!
      Big hugs xx

    1. Thank you sweetie and you're so welcome :) Yes I do try to seek some stillness, which means I will not always be able to do everything that I feel I should do, but that's okay :)
      Happy to see you linking up your gorgeous angles!
      Big hugs and love, xx
