The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~63~

Happy Friday everyone. If you have kids, have they gone back to school yet? Are you happy or sad? I’m always mixed about back-to-school time. It’s nice to be back on a set schedule but on the other hand, the schedule starts to get jam-packed with homework, sports, school events and more. I wouldn’t mind a few more lazy beach days…

A special thank you to all of you that linked up a project this week on the Inspiration Board this week. As always, all the projects were inspiring and wonderful. Here are a few in the spotlight this week.

1-Crepes Recipe Fast and EasyMeaningful Mama whipped up a batch of fast and tasty crepes. What a great breakfast alternative to pancakes. Add fresh berries and a drizzle of chocolate for an extra special treat.

IMG_0480_edited-1I have a thing for granny square blankets and this summer garden granny by Priscillas is so pretty. I love the fresh colors that make the timeless granny squares look oh-so current.

Spring Living rmClass Casual Home shows us her stunning living room. It’s casual, comfortable, beautiful and picture perfect. I’m in love with this room!

watermelonaqua4We just ended a heat wave and this watermelon lime agua fresca would have been perfect to get us through those hot days. The perfect cool and refreshing hot-weather drink by Mrs. Happy Homemaker.

pbcupcakes4These are making me very hungry. Chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter. Don’t they look yum? The Pinterest Project creates a Pinterest-inspired project daily and these cupcakes are a winner.

Red Birdcage Chandelier
Pandora’s Craft Box created a fun and whimsical chandelier out of birdcages. What a great way to display a collection of unused birdcages. Add tea lights or even a bird or two…

Untitled-2-4I had a Mad Hatter Tea party in the spotlight last week and this is a completely different one. A little girl’s Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter Tea Party by Sweet Boutique. The entry to the party is a magical door and once beyond the door is the Wonderland party. Click over to see all the amazing party details.

Potholes and Pantyhose
The homegrown tomato season is coming to an end and many of us are desperately trying to use up our harvest. Perfect timing by Potholes and Pantyhose to share her sundried tomato recipe.
