The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~61~

Happy Friday everyone. I want to thank you so much for sharing your projects on the Inspiration Board this week. There were so many pretty things. It’s always hard to pick the features but here are a few that caught my eye.

Enjoy and I’ll see you on Monday!

mad tea party 9A pretty and whimsical Mad Tea Party by Meeha Meeha. So many fun elements – a cheshire cat, toadstools, cupcake toppers and darling tea cups. What a wonderful setting for a classic story.

IMG_2471Speaking of tea, I love this clean and simple stenciled mug by Our Mini Family. What makes it stand out is the hashtag. Do you Tweet and use hashtags? I do - #ilovethismug!

MobilesTwo really unique mobiles. {left} Hanging Stars light fixture by Max and Me.  {right} Bicycle Wheel Paper Airplane Mobile by Love Grows Wild.


Grow Creative made some unique business cards for her shop. Each is different using splashes of watercolor. These have me wanting to break out my watercolors and brushes.

I have to confess, my son’s growth chart is marked with pencil on the back of a door – not very practical if we ever move. Cupcakes and Crinoline made the cutest oversized wooden ruler growth chart. How fun!

Yummy quesadillas by Oh My Creative. Goat cheese, chicken and corn salsa turns a typical snack item into a real meal.

I never get tired of the nautical look and I love these faux lobster buoys by Miss Kopy Kat. Hobby Lobby clearance items are transformed into these pretty d├ęcor items.

The inner-little-girl in me is always fascinated with fairy gardens. Our Broken Road created a magical fairy garden. This is just one of the detail shots – click over for all the fun elements.

037 (800x535)
A little fabric origami box by Creating my way to Success. What a great way to use a small piece of fabric – especially a classic like the light blue gingham with cherries.

What is cuter than little girl dresses? Baby tootsies! I loved this project when I saw the first photo but it’s even cuter on the little model {those tootsies!!}. Pillowcase dress by Shabby Gals.
