The Inspiration Board: creative party spotlight ~125~

Where did the week go? I can’t believe it’s already time to say TGIF and I mean T.G.I.F! How was your week? Did it fly by as well? I hope you had time to stop by this week and visit me. If you didn’t here’s a little recap of what I shared.

If you did stop by this week, thank you so much. I truly appreciate every visit, comment and link. The projects were amazing as usual. Here are few in the spotlight this week.

stackedcubesCraft blocks turned into beautiful inspiration objects by Kraft Mint. Feathers are “in” right now and I have a love for feathery things. These plain wooden blocks painted and embellished with feathers are so striking!

IMG_1510 1Another trend that I love is mercury glass. Glamorous Affordable Life diyed this mercury glass light fixture using inexpensive candle holders and it looks straight out of a high end lighting store. Ingenious!

halloween houses 3Sometimes the simplest projects just make me smile. These paper boxes by Fishes Make Wishes are so sweet especially with a child’s painting and drawing touch.

Wooden-ArrowsCherished Bliss is thrilled with the results of her wooden arrow art and I don’t blame her. Her clean simple design makes such a statement against the light wall color in her nursery.

DSCN2924-1Holy bat cave! Grow Creative put her own spin on this bat invasion with colorful paper that makes these bats look much more festive as opposed to frightful! 

IMG_0238Having a Halloween gathering? I think these Spider Web Chocolate Martinis shared by Oh My! Creative would be the perfect touch for a spooktacular party!

Mantel-Update-DIYAn amazing fireplace mantel transformation by Painted Vintage. The original brick fireplace had a very narrow brick ledge. A beautiful wooden box made from lumber gives this fireplace a whole new look.

SAM_4858Red Velvet Roulade Cake Roll. Just saying it sounds amazing. Twigg Studios tortures and tempts us with another fantastic confection.

IMG_0995aI’ve never tried Posole before but it sure looks good. Penny’s Treasures shares the recipe and I think this is going on my fall / winter recipes to try list.

DIY-Gold-Leaf-Serving-Bowl-e1382339023321The possibilities are endless with gold leaf. Homey Oh My turned a plain white bowl into a treasure using gold leaf. I’m pretty much in love with it.
