The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 169 & Girly Girl Inspiration

TGIF friends! I know it’s back to school time and everyone is thinking fall d├ęcor but wow, it’s hot where I live. I’m trying to think fall leaves and acorns but my mind is still in the sea blue and beach glass place. How about you? Are you excited for fall? As soon as it cools off a little, I’m right there with you. In the meantime, as we transition into fall, I’m sure everyone is busy with all the things that are happening this time of year – so if you didn’t get a chance to stop by this week, here’s a glimpse of what I shared.

A big thank you to all of you who shared projects this week on The Inspiration Board. The board was filled with wonderful ideas. Here are a few in the spotlight this week.

metal patina wall grilleI love faux art and this Faux metal Wall Art by Pet Scribbles looks so real. Love the patina color and rust.

Milk-Chocolate-Chip-CookiesThere’s nothing quite like a fresh chocolate chip cookie and cold glass of milk. These Milk Chocolate Chip cookies by The DIY Dreamer remind me of my favorite childhood afternoon snack.

DSCN1698An incredible Rag Rug project by The Farm House in the Field. Who doesn’t have an assortment of old clothing items that could be put to good use in the form of a rug. Beautiful!

Pumpkin-Spice-Latte-10Even though I’ve been talking about the end of summer heat, this Pumpkin Spice Latte with Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows by A Simple Pantry is the perfect segue into fall.
