The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~39~

Spring is springing up all over the Inspiration Board and I love it! Thank you to everyone who linked up a project or came over to visit. I truly appreciate the inspiration, comments and visits.

Here are a few projects in the spotlight this week.

A fabulous project by Creative Chaos. I love the idea of diy lamp but the icing on the cake is the use of wonderful enamel bowls and the stripped down lampshade decorated with fabric scraps, birds and butterflies.

There were a lot of wonderful food items linked up this week and although I’m typically drawn to the “comfort type” foods, this caprese and a veggie burger by Betsy Life looks so delicious and refreshing. A perfect meal as we head into warmer weather.

A master bedroom reveal that packs in all the current diy top hits; plank headboard, stenciled curtains, song lyric wall art and so much more. An amazing renovation by PB&J Stories.

Sweet silhouette cross stich by Little Lovelies. The fabric wrapped around the embroidery hoop is such a great idea and adds so much to the finished piece.

Pieced Pastimes created a beautiful inspiration board out of an old bureau frame. The finished piece along with all the photos and objects is truly inspirational.

brunch ideas
Coordinately Yours provides us with three sweet flavored butter recipes just in time for brunch season. They all sound wonderful and would be the perfect side with a salad or your favorite brunch meal.

This mid wall redo has me thinking about bold pops of color. Creatively Living spruced up the area between the stairs and reading nook (another lovely project) with a bookcase, nice artwork, bold lamps and pops of kelly green.

Rook No. 17 makes the most beautiful and delicious looking treats and these springtime macaroons are adorable. Macaroons {not to be confused with the very trendy macarons} are a cream cheese and vanilla cookie with a toasty coconut outer layer. Head over to Rook No. 17 for the recipe.

Suzy at Suzy’s Sitcom is always innovative and then she adds a layer of amazing artistic talent to come up with projects like this faux punched tin. Why faux? Because she used a dollar store aluminum cookie sheet. Genius!

This is possibly – okay definitely - beyond my sewing skills but I’m filing it away to try at some point. A knotted corner pillow by Sew Passionate. Check out the tutorial on how to achieve this very professional looking pillow cording.
