The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~27~

Thank you to everyone who linked up a project on the Inspiration Board this week. My list of projects inspired by you is growing and growing. If you didn’t have a project to link up but came by for a visit, I hope you were inspired to make something. Here are a few in the spotlight this week.
Spectacular white tablescape by It’s Overflowing. The silver and white linen are so classic and the holiday d├ęcor is charming. Click over to see other photos from different angles and all the beautiful details. 

A fun and cozy scarf from Elisabeth Andree ~ About Crochet. Elisabeth is a crochet master and creates the most beautiful pieces. Visit her blog for crochet inspiration and an assortment of patterns.

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. 

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! 

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. 

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. 

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.
Adorable fabric bird ornaments from Happy in Red. The fabrics are so cheery – these little ornaments would brighten any tree.
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.
