The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~124~

How was your week? I hope it was wonderful and filled with beautiful things. Based on The Inspiration Board I can tell everyone has been busy, busy, busy making and creating wonderful projects. Thank you so much for linking up your projects and visiting me throughout the week. If my blog looks a little different, it’s because I tried to make a tiny change and messed something up. Everything was all out of place and I got a little panicky. That’s what I get for trying to do something late at night. Plus, I’m not exactly a tech genius.

Besides my tech woes, it was a whirlwind week here on homework. If you didn’t get a chance to pop by, here’s what I shared this week.

Thank you again for stopping by and visiting me here. I’m truly grateful.
Now on to the projects in the spotlight this week.

clay feathers 2Migi Handmade created these gorgeous salt dough feather ornaments. Beautiful neutral colors with a touch of sparkle. Wouldn’t a tree full of these be absolutely stunning?

Individual-Parmesan-Rosemary-Potato-and-Mushroom-Bowls-3-© Cook for Smiles has managed to make a bow of all my favorite things. Individual Parmesan Rosemary Potato Mushroom bowls. Pass me a fork please!

IMG_4682bI’m green with envy over these built-in bookcases by Home is Where my Heart Is. Look at all those shelves, drawers and cupboards. Wonderful!

Crocheted Rag RugHill House Homestead has crocheted a magnificent rag rug from thrift store sheets. I love the homespun feel but with the soft cool colors. I definitely want to try making one of these.

OD6Sugar Swings makes the most amazing sweet treats and these Oktoberfest Beer Doughnuts are so cheerful. Plus, I love the caption and couldn’t agree more….Mmmmmm doughnuts.

Felt-Silverware-Pocket-Day-10-of-31Days-Homespun-Table-Setting-AnExtraordinaryDay.net_A beautiful table setting by An Extraordinary Day. I love these hand stitched felt  utensil holders. They’re perfect for a cozy fall or holiday gathering.

Gold-Dipped-Pumpkins-CenterpieceI’m in love with this gold dipped pumpkin vase by Homey Oh My. Real pumpkins painted white and then gold “dipped” or spay painted for a beautiful effect.

fall-table-chalkboard-wallWow – look at this table setting by AKA Design. Neutral colors with pops of orange to warm the table. Of course, the chandelier and chalkboard wall in the background are stunning too.

boo bag titleA darling Boo Bag made with fabric scraps by Michelle Lea Designs. The orange and black work so well with the mod fabric choices and I love the BOO font.

IMG_9911Urbane Jane has transformed two cheap side tables into a beautiful bench / living room table. The stunning fabric matches the new gold legs perfectly. A truly inspirational project.
