The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~38~

Pin It

Another amazing week on the Inspiration Board. Thank you to everyone who linked up a project or came by to visit. There are so many link parties available and I’m so grateful to be on your party list. Have you noticed all the warm colors that are popping up and the glimpses of spring in the projects? I love this transition into spring.

Here are a few of the projects in the spotlight this week.

Pretty fabric scrap bracelets by Glimmer Snaps. These would look great with a tank top and sandals or a pretty sundress. I know we all can’t wait for warm weather and pretty accessories like these bracelets.

Two great lamp transformations.

Chic Nest Moss Clay Pot 3
Spring is around the corner and the birds will soon be nesting. Alyssabeth starts the season off with this pretty moss covered clay pot nest.

This tray was heading to the donation center but a moment of inspiration and a a coat (or two) of paint transformed it just in time. Nice save by Happy Canadian Home.

In My Own Style creates a faux zinc candy jar top out of a tuna can. Amazing!  The glass knob completes the look and of course, makes digging into those candies a little easier.
A bright and cheery birdcage makeover by Ode to Inspiration. The aqua flowers, lace and bird give the new cage a sweet personal touch. 

These cranberry scones by Live Laugh Rowe look so yummy. And the best part – they’re healthy and only four weight watcher points. I’m definitely going to make some of these. 

tulips in bark 2
While out walking, Design Megillah found beautiful pieces of birch bark that had fallen off a tree. What a great find! The bark creates a beautiful, natural vase for this pretty spring flowers. 

What a great apron rack by Bringing Beauty. The vintage rolling pins are so unique and will be a great conversation piece when it hangs in their deli. 

A sweet peanut themed baby shower by Homemaker on a Dime. The baby nicknamed “little peanut” was the inspiration for theme. A lot of pretty details like the painted peanuts, pretty cupcakes and diaper cake make this shower extra special.
