The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~48~

Happy Friday everyone. A big thank you to everyone who shared a project on the Inspiration Board this week. I hope you were able to visit some of the links and find some inspiration for creativity. Wishing you all a wonderful spring weekend.

Here are a few projects in the spotlight this week.

I desperately need this in my kitchen. A diy rolling storage solution by Classy Clutter using the small space between the wall and refrigerator. So smart and the chevron back wall is the icing on the cake.

Homeroad shows us her pretty secret garden. The garden is brimming with goodies like crates, tubs, pots and shutters. I love this window greenhouse perfect for the lettuce starting to sprout.


A pretty ornament using a wine cork by Reposhture complete with beaded grapes. A simple and striking craft.

Mmmmm – bruschetta. Joyful Homemaking takes bruschetta to another level with crumbled maple bacon. I could eat the whole plate.

Beautiful glass charms by RaeGun Ramblings. The images in the pendants are from favorite book covers and the charms relate to the story. Very unique and a great gift idea for an avid reader.

Delicious looking clay pot chicken by My Turn for Us. I’ve heard that cooking in a clay pot brings out a flavor that you can’t get in a regular pot – I think I saw it on a travel food show. This chicken looks tender and oh so savory!

There’s no shortage of great palette projects lately and this one adds to that list. 2 Crafty 4 My Skirt built this fantastic Mother’s Day Potting Table from old palettes. What a sweet gift and it looks so pretty with the spring flowers.

What a fun party theme. A Bowling Party by Vixen Made for her husband. The theme is carried out throughout all the goodies. White holiday punch, milk bottle bowling pins, cookie bowling balls and more.

Small Garden Love created a fun and green herb garden in honor of Earth Day. Galvanized buckets hang from chains giving the plants plenty of air and sunshine.

A wonderful keepsake quilt from The Root Cellar. The squares are made up of a baby’s receiving blankets. From a pile of treasured blankets to one treasured quilt.

Have you heard of Vecco? Vecco is a painting technique for creating rugs and carpets inspired by you. With stencils, colorant sprays and sealants, you make custom designs that'll tie any room together. 

The part I love about Vecco is you get do-overs. Make a mistake? No biggie. Just vacuum up the color and start again before you seal. Nothing’s set in stone until you use the sealant, so you can design as many times as you like until it’s just right!

Check out this layered technique and room inspiration. So pretty!
