The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~83~

Thank you to everyone who stopped by on New Year’s Day and the rest of this week to link up and share your creativity! It was a smaller party due to the holiday but because there were so many “Best Of” posts linked up, there were even more projects to look at than normal. The inspiration was abundant. Here are a few projects in the spotlight this week.

CL_IGP2229-e1352750813125From Restoration Redoux’s Top Ten projects, this turquoise chandelier was my favorite. I love the new color mixed with the old fashioned classic crystals and scroll work. Pretty!

igottacreate_fringed_popcorn_bags_timecroopAlso from a Best Of post, I Gotta Create made these darling, simple brown paper fringed popcorn bags. These could be used for so many different themed parties. Easy, clever and cute!

DSC_0015-21Even though all the New Year’s celebrations are over, I had to share Kathe with an E’s beautiful table. It’s definitely a party with all kinds of New Year’s sparkle. And, I’m in love with those clock plates.

Like a breath of fresh air after a fun season of glitter, Design Dreams by Anne has created a lovely and simple Sheet Music Cone Vase and filled it with simple flowers.

Washer Monogram Canvas 10Monograms are still hot, hot, hot and I love this unique spin using washers by Love Grows Wild. The silver washers against the blue canvas and simple knick knacks make a striking arrangement.

Second Chance to Dream shows us her favorite posts from 2012 and this fantastic vertical succulent garden was my favorite. I would love to make one of these this year!

The Silly Pearl shares her round up of craft projects from the past year and this Chinese Spoon Art was her most popular post. I can see why – it’s just darling.

Pedestal-1Restyled Junk found this birdbath pedestal without a top and used a vintage enamel basin to complete it. But the birds are out of luck since she plans to use it as a pedestal catchall for her bathroom.
