The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~49~

Pin It

Happy Friday and welcome to the Inspiration Board spotlight. A huge thank you from the bottom of my heart for those of you who came by and linked up a project. The board was brimming with creativity this week.



Here are a few projects in the spotlight this week.

rug 8
Wow – what an amazing transformation. Creatively Living stenciled a rug that she was going to get rid of because of wear and stains. Now the rug has a brand new look and it’s definitely a keeper.



IMG_2426
Inspired by a Pottery Barn piece, That’s My Letter built and painted this adorable play table. It’s a knock off with a capital “K” down to the colored drawers and old library card catalog pulls.


 
book 117
A sweet handmade gift from Deepi’s World. The hand painting on the tote bag is so pretty but the black embroidery around the floral pattern makes it extra special.


 
Buzz's Kentucky Derby party 05-05-12 033
I’m fascinated with fascinators – those little hats that perch on the side of one’s head. OKI Stamp Queen made one for a recent Kentucky Derby party. Paper flowers, tulle and feathers – perfect for a day at the races.



P4300451
Such a clever idea. A paint chip matching game for little ones. Visit Sew Fantastic for the how to and adorable pictures of her daughter “matching” the colors.



vintage-necklace-pendants-complete
Sweet vintage graphic necklaces from How to Nest for Less. The graphics are her original work created in Photoshop and mounted in pendant frames. If you don’t have Photoshop there are plenty of free printables that would work for this project.



IMG_2972
I love this placemat to purse project by Reposhture. The inside of the purse is lined with fabric and the handles go perfectly with the placemat/purse. A great repurpose project.



RosemaryBread
You can practically taste the bready goodness popping off the screen. Beautiful golden brown Rosemary bread by Little Green Bow.



dollar tree shelf liner cabinet back
Fox Hollow Cottage removed the glass doors from these kitchen cabinets and lined the backs with dollar store shelf liner. The cabinets were pretty to begin with but now the dish display is a stunning focal point.



46
What are you doing for Mother’s Day? Check out this great idea from Moore Minutes – a Mother’s Day brunch in a special spot. Cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit and lemonade packed to go and enjoyed at a yarn shop knitting/sitting area. Knitting, chatting, eating – perfect!

The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~46~

Thank you to everyone who came by to visit or shared a project on the Inspiration Board. With so many link parties available, I honored that I’m on your party list. There were so many beautiful projects on the board this week. What’s trending now? Cherry blossoms, lavender, organization, gardening and graduation. Here are the projects in the spotlight this week.


 
chandelier061-500x332How brilliant is this? Make a chandelier out of wire hangers by Nifty Thrifty Things. And not just brilliant, it’s so pretty and feminine.



7067210849_737227d3a6
Darling cherry blossom cupcakes by Sugar Swings. The cherry blossom flowers are made out of… wait for it… vanilla tootsie rolls. I love this idea – my mind is spinning with possibilities.


purse-001Did you know you can use freezer paper to make your own stencils? Twigg Studios raises the bar on custom stencil work with this beautifully intricate stencil pattern. And then takes it to another level be making a little purse out of the fabric.



Sachet3
Sweet lavender sachets by Woven Home. The monogram and needle work were done on a sewing machine. It’s amazing what sewing machines can do these days.



stencilsGrow Creative used a stencil to create this water color painting. How fun would it be to make several of these, frame them and create a wall collage.


 
IMG_1343EW
I’m in awe of this farmhouse table and bench. Domestic Imperfection used an online tutorial and finished this in three days. Did I mention I’m in awe?

This is some serious yumminess. Butter, sugar, coconut – oh my. My Predilections shares her family coconut pound cake recipe. She says it’s “moist, rich, dense and delicious” and I believe it. Pure torture staring at this photo – I would love a piece right now.



thai food 062I love this project by Meaningful Mama. Mama and kids gathered flowers and created fairies together. Sometimes the best projects are those created with love.



 
close up shabby cabinet
A light and bright sun room complete with this shabby chic cabinet. Fox Hollow Cottage adds the perfect touch with these one-of-a-kind treasured décor pieces.




47
Graduation season is just around the corner and Celebrations at Home shows us a great graduation party idea. This party is centered around the theme “keys to success” for a college grad but the pretty details can be modified for any age graduate.

The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~31~


The first post-holiday Inspiration Board of 2012 was brimming with wonderful projects. The color palette shifted to a more everyday serene look and I loved seeing a sprinkling of early Valentine’s Day projects. 

Thank you to everyone who linked up a project. It’s amazing to see the array of ideas and talent. If you dropped by to visit, I hope you were as inspired as I was. 


Here are a few in the spotlight this week.



008
This isn’t just an ornament. It’s a delightful surprise by Craftberry Bush. Inside the ornament is all the makings for hot cocoa. The embellished plain glass ornament was a popular item this season and this by far is my favorite. So creative and adorable. 


DSC_0017
I have a love affair with all things pastry. Confession…I’ll eat pastry crust plain. So pictures like this just make me insanely hungry. Mini pie stars by A Pumpkin and a Princess.


  DSCF5370
I got a new sewing machine for Christmas. It’s still in the box. I’m so eager to start sewing again but I just haven’t had the time yet. Describe Happy made this beautiful, super cheerful quilt in one and half weeks for her sister. Amazing! 


sheets
Alderberry Hill linked a round up of every day tips to make life easier. There are so many great ideas; reuse a wet wipes container to store plastic bags, use the bottom of muffin tins to bake cookie bowls and more. 


votive3
Beautiful faux stained glass by Screaming Sardine. The colors are so gorgeous and vibrant. Really beautiful! 


 IMG_20111226_101658
As I’m cleaning out and organizing I’m trying to think of ways to reuse and repurpose things before throwing them or giving them away. This is a great idea by Sweetwater Style. Make cloth dinner napkins from old drapes. I love the detail stitching on the napkin edge. Note to self: break out that new sewing machine. 


IMG_3666-2
I love white on white and this damask wall art is so pretty. Learn how to make this wall art using a stencil and puffy paint at Our Mini Family


IMAG0507-copy
I love all the homemade soaps and scrubs that are popular right now but I haven’t seen these before. Pretty bath fizzies by Sweet Anne. Perfect for a Valentine’s gift or any reason gift. 


P1030573
Beautiful, beautiful photos of holiday mood objects and colors by Beach Comber. This makes me long for summer days at the beach. Absolutely lovely.

I definitely want to make one of these ornament wreaths. I’ve seen them in a variety of colors but this silver one by My Covered Bridge is extra merry and bright. 


lb-snowmen-2
One of the most original ideas I’ve seen. This adorable snowman ornament by Lady With the Red Rocker is made out of a light bulb. Super cute! 


  6461958893_676b6f52fc
Nifty Thrifty Things always impresses with crafts and treats. These homemade marzipan candies are no exception and look perfectly delicious. Check out her site for simple beauty and gorgeous photography. 


  IMG_4623
Seriously one of the cutest projects I’ve seen. Brown Paper Packages creates lolly ornaments from clay. This would be a fun craft to do with kids. 


 
17619822478
A very original advent calendar from Smallgood Hearth. A vintage bingo card remade into an advent. What a great way to use and display a vintage piece.
 
 
Bird
Adorable fabric bird ornaments from Happy in Red. The fabrics are so cheery – these little ornaments would brighten any tree.
 
   
pink-cashmere-beret-child-2
Fantastic upcycle by Sugar and Trash. Cashmere sweaters refashioned into a baby beret. The pink is perfectly sweet and the grey contrast looks oh so classy.
 
 
magnolia garland
Coordinately Yours creates a beautiful magnolia leaf garland. Lush and and unadorned, the garland looks beautiful against the white fireplace.
