The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~59~

Happy Friday everyone. I hope everyone had a great week. If you stopped by The Inspiration Board on Tuesday and linked up a project – thank you so much. There were so many fun things to check out. And for those of you who came by to visit, leave a comment or just check out some projects – thank you for taking the time to visit my little blog.

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

Beautiful bedding topped off with a stunning vintage button monogram pillow by The Ivy Cottage. So pretty!

Potholes and Pantyhose
Homemade butter by Potholes and Pantyhose. I bet it’s so creamy and fresh – and you don’t need an old-fashioned butter churn to make it.

Design, Dining and Diapers turned a thrift store watering can into a faux vintage planter using Bronzed Metal spray paint. I need to get some of this paint - my mind is reeling with ideas….

The sweetest little ruffle bib by Just Another Hang Up. Pretty calico fabric, buttons and ruffles make it almost too pretty to use.

chocolate swirl lollipops 2
Chocolate Swirl Lollipops by Meaningful Mama. This is a fun project that kids can help make and of course eat!

Did you know you could paint wood laminate furniture? Sarah Dawn Designs shows us how using a special primer. I love the stencil work making the piece even more unique.

London Olympics tote bag
The Olympics are almost here! Happy in Red is ready with this Summer Olympics Tote Bag made out of the cutest I {heart} London fabric.

Reese's Peanut Butter Crispy Treats.jpg_thumb
Rice Krispie Treats on a stick! Brilliant! Our Thrifty Ideas put a different spin on cake pops with these Reece’s Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats. Perfect for a kid’s party to help lessen sticky fingers.

bathroom 1
Creatively Living gave her bathroom a quick change with items from around the house. An old drawer, shells and other knick knacks completely change the look of the bathroom.

Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies 5 ed
These sound so healthy that I’m sure they don’t have any calories. Blueberry Oatmeal cookies from Will Cook for Smiles. They look deeeelishous!
