The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~34~

This week’s Inspiration Board was filled with dreamy and lovely projects. Thank you to everyone who linked up a project and to everyone who came to visit. 

Here are a few in the spotlight this week.

Beautiful photography of snowberries by Nifty Thrifty Things. I’ve never seen snowberries before but I’m now obsessed with them. Vanessa of Nifty Thrifty Things has a regular Friday Floral post and the photography is always stunning. 

DIY faux bois jar tutorial
Faux Bois (false wood) is really in style now and I love this faux bois jar project by Max and Me. This technique has been on my to-do list and I’m going to dig out my fluffy paint and make one asap.

That’s My Letter repurposed a loaf pan into a cute pincushion complete with heart pins. A sweet Valentine gift for someone who sews. 

Beat the winter blues with these pretty winter blue bath salts by Homespun with Love. A beautiful intense blue bath salt scented with grapefruit essential oil – how could you not be cheered up. 

Little Lovelies created these ombre cross stitched hearts that are so sweet. The original pattern is available on her post. 

Cranberry Almond Pumpkin Bread by Will Cook for Smiles. Nothing says cozy like a piece of homemade bread.

This rag doll by Farm Wife Journal is precious. I love the blue pony tails and matching doll quilt. A wonderful homemade gift. 

Slight Angle
Sweetheart Glitter Cottage by Sew Can Do. Such pretty pink details on this cottage. I would love a whole village of these little houses as a centerpiece. 

Beautiful, dreamy organza flower by One Perfect Day. The flower looks lighter than air and I love the contrast of the bold leaf stitches.

Simply stunning! Craftberry Bush always has wonderful projects and this wire wrapped heart is one of my favorites. Perfection!
