Theme for October 1: Lace

The theme for October 1 is: LACE

Lace came in second on my recent poll.  I know it’s a bit late in the summer in some parts of North America, but you can always use layers if it’s getting cold.  Cozy crocheted items often have a lacey texture, so use your imagination!  Just be sure to keep it clean.  NO ADULT CONTENT will be allowed.

Be sure to come back on October 1 and submit your post.  It can be photos of yourself or someone else wearing lace, or any inspiring images you find, a review of a certain brand, a story, a movie review, artwork or anything (as long as it’s about lace!).  Just be sure to cite your source if borrowing photos or content that are not your own original work!  ๐Ÿ™‚

How It Works
On the first day of each month, I will post my theme post with the Mr. Linky sign-up form at the bottom. You can link to any post youโ€™ve done that day or previously, as long as it matches the theme. Be sure to add the icon to your post, and link your post to mine using the Mr. Linky box at the bottom.

You can post your theme post earlier than the first of the month, or link to an old post, but you must add it to Mr. Linky on Day 1 of the month. You canโ€™t post it after the first of the month, as I will close the Mr. Linky sign-up form on the second of each month so I donโ€™t have to continue monitoring them for spam. ๐Ÿ™‚

You don’t have to participate every single month. Feel free to join in whenever you wish. Just be sure you get your post linked before the second day of the month!

Also, letโ€™s keep the posts appropriate for all ages, in terms of both language and imagery. Thanks!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Posts that are linked up without including the icon will be removed from Mr. Linky.

HTML for the icon: (The icon and the HTML will remain the same each month)

Please pass this invitation on to any bloggers you know who might be interested, and feel free to share the announcement on your blogs.  Of course, it’s a good idea to follow my blog to be sure you don’t miss any of the themes.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Want to Suggest a Theme?
Leave a comment on any post at any time, or e-mail me. If I use your suggestion, I will credit you on my theme post for that month and in the theme announcement the week before.  No promises that I will use every suggestion, because the themes have to be things that I would be able to do a post about.

Want to participate in the Monthly Theme? Here’s how:

  1. Add the Monthly Theme icon to your blog post (copy the code below and paste into your post using the Edit HTML feature):

  2. Paste the URL to your post using the Mister Linky box at the bottom of my August 1 post.
    Please use a direct link to your relevant post, NOT a link to your blogโ€™s home page.
  3. Visit all of the other participants who have entered, and show them you appreciate their theme posts!

  2. So sad I missed the last round, but I will NOT be missing this one! I have some of my best laces lined up and waiting!

  3. Oooh, this is very anonymous blogger friendly.

    I have a dress that I need to feature! There's some repair work that must be done first. Ah, the perfect way to get me to do my sewing — make it part of the monthly theme! hehehehe …

  8. I have a dress that I'm hoping to feature, if it's washed in time, otherwise I'll have to go with a different one.

  9. oooh! Lace! *starts planning theme post* Hmmm since it is getting colder out, may I suggest gloves for a future monthy theme? Fingerless gloves, motercycle gloves, victorian gloves, oh, the options! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Indeed, perfect timing. I also had a blog post already in mind that just so happens to feature lace! I need to get to work on it, though.Speaking of lace, did you know Newport News is having a 60% sale on featured lace? I know how you like Newport News!
