The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 172 & Basic Black Inspiration

Hip Hip Hooray! It’s Friday! High fives everyone. I hope you all had a fantastic week filled with fun and creativity. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me sweet and encouraging words. I so appreciate it. If you didn’t have a chance to pop by this week, here’s what I shared.

And now on to the features…

IMG_3111Little Red Window stitched up this darling embroidery hoop sampler and it’s so sweet and cherry!

TanjiPChanSmWATERLynda Bergman repainted this pretty chandelier from a green patina finish to this lovely white distressed finish. This has me thinking about a chandelier for my dining room.

IMGP1277At the Createaerie takes a paper pumpkin a notch with pretty natural embellishments. I love the moss and feathers as an added touch to a pumpkin.

Look how good this skillet apple pie by Written Reality looks. I’ve never had pie made in a cast iron skillet but I suspect it must make it extra special. Oh, I can’t wait for my first bite of apple pie this season!

ScreenHunter_4796-Sep.-07-10.293 Boys and a Dog shares this super fun school bus sandwich. This is absolutely darling. What a fun lunch!

stencil painted trayThis stenciled tray by The Pink Junkie is so pretty. The stencil is the perfect size for the tray and I just love the color.

Бели книги1Pretty white and pink shabby décor by Martinel. Paper flowers, a beautiful sheer scarf and pretty books tied with twine. Beautiful!

DSCN1406 fall mantel 2014I love these traditional fall colors used by Vintage, Paint and more for her mantel. The paper leaf wreath is the main attraction and it’s so pretty.

apple sugar cookies 20-2I’m absolutely drooling over these cinnamon sugar cookies by Simply Suzanne. Not only are they beautiful replicas of apples but I love sugar cookies and look at all that wonderful colored sugar.
