The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~33~

This week the Inspiration Board had on overall feel of pink, red and sugary goodness. Mixed in were beautiful general crafts, home d├ęcor and a whole lot of inspiration. 

Thank you to everyone who linked up a project and to those who just came by to check out the links. I truly appreciate your links, comments and visits.

Here are a few projects in the spotlight this week:

Pretty, romantic, vintage and just plain gorgeous dessert table by Homespun with Love. Brilliant use of thrift store linens and ribbons to make the garland backdrop. The details are absolutely lovely.

This coffee table was definitely saved by love! Saved by Love Creations rescued a sad coffee table and transformed it into a clean and bright piece. Beautiful stencil work on the table top.

I love this simple diy by Nifty Thrifty Things. Make your own baker’s twine using embroidery floss. I can’t wait to try this and add a rainbow of baker’s twine colors to my stash.

Industrial style typography
Silver Boxes shows us how to make industrial style letters using everyday items. Unique and inventive – I can think of a lot of fun projects using this technique. The first thing that comes to mind is to spell out EAT for my kitchen - fun!

Christmas 2011 123
I’ve come to the conclusion that there isn’t a piece of bark that I’ve met that I haven’t loved. And this lemon bark by Moments with the Montanos looks like it would melt in your mouth. The best part – the recipe is super easy. 

anni 1 close up
A personal and sentimental anniversary gift by TV Designs. A family tree with the couple’s initials stitched in the middle of the tree rings and the children’s initials on the leaves. Very original and well done – a true keepsake.

52 Mantels creates a chalkboard tabletop and beautiful display of objects. Great fun to be able to write on the table top around all the objects. I’m also in love with the yellow and green vase at the end of the table (which match my kitchen).

This Green Muenster grilled cheese sandwich by Everything Under the Moon elevates grilled cheese to a new level. Muenster cheese, guacamole, and applewood bacon… oh. my. goodness. I just keep staring at the picture because I want one…now!

What a sweet pillowcase by Yesterday on Tuesday for a special sweetheart. Using fabric scraps and heat n’ bond you could change out the look of your pillow quickly and easily for different seasons.

Little Girls Bedroom Makeover 8
This little girl’s room by Desire Empire is darling. A palette of pinks accents complement the white walls, bedding and furniture and create a pretty in pink space.
