The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~17~

Thank you to everyone who linked up a project this week on the Inspiration Board. There were so many amazing projects to look at. I hope you enjoyed visiting the other links as much as I did.

Here are a few that I’m spotlighting this week.
floating acorn cap candle
The Gunny Sack made these "oh so autumn"  floating candles from acorn caps. I love acorn projects and this one is really original. 

Learn how to color candy at Paper Vine. Use store bought plain candy and color it to match your party theme. Great idea! 

Faux Cubbies by West Furniture Revival. I love the cubbies but equally love the wonderful décor items thoughtfully placed inside.
Jelly Fish Jelly teaches us how to make a homemade kaleidoscope. Great for big and little kids. Who isn’t fascinated with the changing colors of a kaleidoscope? 

Boo with Uncommon
Beautifully crafted yarn-wrapped letters by Uncommon. The little bats add just the right touch against the white mantle. 
Describe Happy made this gorgeous quilt in some of my favorite colors. I couldn’t resist using this image with her furry friends (to see better pictures of the quilt visit Describe Happy). I selected this photo because I love it when things that we make are used rather than stored away. I’m sure this quilt will be used for snuggling with these guys for many years.

What a great little boy’s room by Max and Emerson. The road spells out Max and continues onto the next wall. Adorable.

Features 17_1
Wonderful yardstick art by Artful Panoply. The best part – the yardsticks were purchased at a garage sale for 75 cents – for all of them. What a great find.
Beautiful palette art perfect for fall from The Creative Paige. The different colors of each board make this piece all the more interesting.

Upcycled detergent tins turned into beautiful fabric covered vases by Frugalicious Me. I love the breath of fresh air these springtime colors bring to the party.

Blue Chateau Interiors brings Venice to our screens with beautiful photography. The scenery and her photography are just spectacular.


I’m expanding the Color Board that I spotlight each week and changing it to a Pin Board. This gives me more options to spotlight not only color but other categories.
