The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~19~

What a wonderful week on the Inspiration Board. Beautiful seasonal and year-round projects, food, décor and more. Is anyone else stunned that October is halfway over and we’re heading into the holiday season.

Thank you to everyone who linked up and to everyone who came by to visit. All the projects linked up were amazing - here are a few that I’m spotlighting this week.
A coiled magazine page bowl by Saved by LoveCreations. Recycled magazines turned into a work of art. Beautiful!

Felting has been on my list of projects to learn and these Billy Buttons by Max and Me are just so bright and cheery. 

A painted leaf and acorn wreath by Lady with the Red Rocker. I love the contrast of the green and metallic gold against the black door. The best tip is what she used as a wreath base – great cost saving idea! 

Beautiful fall pumpkin mobile by The Rooster and the Hen.  An original way to display pumpkins and a great idea if you are out of shelf or mantle space. 

Fun and whimsical cake topper by Zween. The coiled wire is the perfect setting for this little birthday bird.

Pretty glitter tea lights by Frugalicious Me. These would make wonderful favors for a variety of parties; showers, weddings or the holidays. 

This gluten free pumpkin bread {disguised as a cake or is it vice versa) looks delicious. I know there’s a lot of interest for gluten free recipes so head over to Design, Dining and Diapers to learn how to make this.
I’m amazed at this yarn ball light by The Crafty Scientist. I’ve used this same technique to make bowls but the perfectly round orb with the light shining through is fantastic. 

I couldn’t decide which photo to use of the Miss Kopy Kat “fall-i'-fying” post. Beautiful fall décor inside and outside. Head over to see all the inspiration. 

This vignette is so pretty. Villa Barnes made the candle holders out of lamp parts, paint and prisms. The clock face and white pumpkin add the finishing touches. Lovely!

  3. I'm so happy the glitter tea lights inspired you! Your blog always inspires me:)

  4. awesome features! The fabulous acorn green wreath sparked an idea just this very minute and I'm totally intrigued by Rosemary's lamp-candle holders. They're gorgeous! And of course I'm naturally drawn to the paper lanterns that Vanessa made. I remember making them as a young girl. This grown up version is awesome. xo, Diane
