The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~68~

Thank you to everyone who stopped by the Inspiration Board this week. All the projects were fantastic. The beautiful fall projects were so inspiring as well as all the recipes, home décor, diy and crafts. I can’t thank you enough for including me on your link party list. I truly appreciate it. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and hope to see you again next week.

Here are a few projects in the spotlight this week.

IMG_9157Lucy of Craftberry Bush amazes again. Her spin on the newest trend of using plastic spoons in crafts takes it to another level. Humble plastic spoons become an artichoke vase. Absolutely wonderful.

IMG_2769Such a sweet little Parisian bag by Ana Love Craft. Pretty fabric and nice details like a pocket for eyeglasses make this extra special.

rag rug finished10web What little girl wouldn’t love a pink, cozy, fluffy rug? Our Everyday Art made this rag rug that is the perfect spot for reading and relaxing.

Beautiful decorative stones by Grow Creative. Get ready to be impressed… the images are hand drawn with a Sharpie. I can’t stop gazing at them - they’re mesmerizing!

prettypackaging14It’s Always Autumn is sharing adorable sweet treat packaging. Head over for the free template download including tags, templates and instructions.

caramel corn title I love caramel – caramel corn not so much. But this caramel corn by JacOlyn Murphy is right up my alley. Homemade or purchased caramel wrapped in corn husks make an adorable treat.

toddlerZigZag-3Chevron is still topping the charts and this chevron quilt by Jaqs Studio combines the popular chevron pattern with beautiful vintage feel fabrics. A beautifully made quilt.

DSC_1521 Salsa Verde by Will Cook for Smiles would definitely make me smile. Tomatillos, jalapenos and other yummy ingredients perfectly blended and ready to be devoured with a basket of blue corn tortilla chips.

falltablescape8A beautiful non-traditional color palette for fall. An aqua and yellow tablescape by Design Stash. The table runner and pumpkin décor tie it all together for a beautiful understated and elegant fall table.

bench 1This little bench has gone through several looks and I love the latest one by Classy Clutter. Gold is mounting a comeback and it works perfectly with the metal scrolls on this bench. The rich blue patterned fabric gives the whole piece an upscale look.

Painted Vintage Suitcase 2The Concrete Cottage has been on the hunt for the perfect love-worn suitcase and finally found it. A little Annie Sloan paint and tlc and this suitcase has a new life and new home.
