The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~41~

Pin It

Happy Friday! And welcome to the Inspiration Board spotlight. Thank you to everyone who came by to visit and a big thank you if you shared your project. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy checking out your creativity.

There were so many creative projects linked up on Tuesday, I really had a hard time picking features this week.

Here are a few projects in the spotlight this week.

One of the most unique projects I’ve seen. Creative Chaos created these wonderful spoons out of shells and driftwood. So perfect for a beach theme mantel or tablescape.

finished beach hut
Speaking of beach themes, City Girl Gone Coastal turned her kids’ playhouse into a beach hut in the garden. I love the blue and white stripes and nautical bunting.

faux wallpaper 14
Meeha Meeha shows us how to make faux wall paper. What looks like a whimsical accent strip of wallpaper is actually individually placed stickers. What a fun idea.

What a great idea for upcycling an old t-shirt. Threading My Way made a pillow out of a favorite t-shirt. I’m sure it’s extra soft and cuddly.

Love 040
Wow! I thought they only made cakes like this on television. Fantastic baby shower cake by Meaningful Mama. The party theme was “cute as a button” and this cake is even more than that.

Gorgeous ruffle pillow by Ode to Inspiration. The red, pool blue and yellow colors are some of my favorites.

Features 41-1
If you’re in need of some last minute St. Patrick’s Day ideas here are some great ones.

Ice Cream Cupcakes
This recipe can be used year-round for different occasions. A Pumpkin and a Princess made these pretty mint chocolate chip ice cream cupcakes for St. Patrick’s Day. Just change out the ice cream for different occasions. Fun!

I love pasta. I think I could eat it every night. This roasted butternut squash, crispy kale and bacon pasta from Tale of the T’s sounds fantastic. And what a great way to serve up some leafy greens and veggies.

Gorgeous magnetic pin dish by Color Me Domestic. A Dollar Store glass plate and candle holder painted in a pretty blue becomes a beautiful personal gift.
