The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~77~

Happy Day After Thanksgiving everyone. Has everyone recovered? It was a lot of prep but worth every bite and calorie! And the best part – leftovers!

I’m thankful for so many things, including all of you who come by to visit and link up your projects on the Inspiration Board. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy going through the links and learning new things, pinning ideas and discovering new sites. Thank you – thank you!

So grab a turkey sandwich and check out the projects in the spotlight this week.

Thanksgiving Chalkboard 1A beautiful Thanksgiving chalkboard by The Concrete Cottage. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of the chalkboard look and I love the artwork and expression on this one.

IMG_3861Fantastic holiday wrap idea from Oh My Creative. Upcycled sweaters turned into wine bottle gift bags. I’m sure the thrift store have loads of sweaters just waiting to be turned into these cute bags.

IMAG1166Gorgeous Christmas tree décor by Penny’s Treasures. I love how the sparse tree really shows off each ornament and light.

Pine-Cone-Snowy-Wreath-2Stunning wreath by Uncommon Designs. I love natural elements and these snow tipped pinecones are the perfect winter / holiday touch. The oval shape and burlap ribbon knock it out of the park.

wreathAnother stunning wreath by Creative Dominican. This one is made out of crepe paper flowers. The crepe paper was dipped in coffee to give the flowers an aged look. Beautiful!

hash-brown-cakesPotato Breakfast Cakes by Pink Recipe Box. Crispy potato cakes with bacon and onion served alongside a crispy egg with a soft yolk. Sounds fantastic.

Bread-PuddingBanana Bread Pudding with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream by Southern Mom Cooks. Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar and Bean Paste, sweet bananas and cinnamon topped with cold ice cream. Oh my!

IMG_2187-1024x1024Yellow Spool treats us to this adorable animal pillow. This one is a snail and looks so soft and cuddly. Click on over for the pattern. There’s a cute fox pillow too!

IMG_8036-copyI love advent calendars and I need to hurry and get one made! Say Not Sweet Anne is ahead of the curve and shares this fun paper box advent calendar. Each box is a wedge shape nestled together to make a two-tiered cake. Let the countdown begin!

30A moment of silence for the Twinkie! Did you grow up on Twinkies? Are you sad that they are gone? If so, head over to Moore Minutes where she shares a recipe for homemade Twinkies. You can even use a canoe shaped tin to create the same shape as the original Twinkie. And I think we can all agree that even though it’s sad to say goodbye to the store bought Twinkie, a homemade version is going to be a heck of a lot better.
