The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~14~

Thank you to everyone who linked up a project. I’m really enjoying discovering new blogs and new sources for creative inspiration. The projects amaze me week after week.
Here are a few that I’m spotlighting this week.
A rustic whole grain wreath by Keeping up with the Times. Beautifully crafted and with the perfect touch of burlap.
Inspiration: bountiful

These Peas Taste Funny created an Indian corn centerpiece. A great way to repurpose a jar just in time for your fall table.
Inspiration: thanksgiving

Fabulous twine pumpkins from That’s My Letter. I love the different shapes and sizes and this is the perfect project for my twine obsession which is still going strong.
Inspiration: more uses for twine!

I need to find a river with some rocks so I can make some of these table name tags. Extra points go to Inspiration and Realisation for biking to the river to collect the rocks and for the great tip to use a white-out pen.
Inspiration: natural elements

You can tell a lot of thought went into this kitchen art wall from Big D and Me. I love all of the artwork and the simple white frames.
Inspiration: clean and white

Postage stamps have some of the best artwork and this Boy Scout Stamp Ornament from Make Homemade Gifts is adorable.
Inspiration: be prepared

Oh my goodness. How cute are these Oyster and Pearl Madeleine Cakes by Rook No. 17. Madeleines make up the oyster shell and a gumball serves as the pearl.
Inspiration: sweet little treasures

Can you believe this chandelier is made from cereal boxes? Jellyfish Jelly did an amazing job on this fun chandelier which would be perfect for a child’s room, playhouse or for a Halloween party.
Inspiration: upcycling

housewarming gift
What a beautiful housewarming gift from Coordinately Yours. Favorite household items tucked into a charming jar make the gift extra special.
Inspiration: extra thoughtful
