The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 174 & Autumn Scents Inspiration

Happy Friday everyone. My fall celebration was short lived and we’re having another heat wave here in Southern California. Today it was 90. Sigh…  Hopefully, this will be the last blast of heat and we can move on to sweater and soup weather. Who’s with me? A big thank you to all of you who stopped by this week and special hugs to those of you who shared your projects here on The Inspiration Board. In case you missed anything this week, here’s a recap of what I shared.

And now for the projects in the spotlight this week.

MWMAINAren’t these absolutely the most adorable little monsters you’ve ever seen? Sugar Swings created these from sugar wafers and they are wonderful.

DSC_0451A fantastic fall mantel from Shabby Love Blog. Loads of great details like those beautiful feathers and stark deer head.

beef-vegetable-and-riceI will be trying out this crock pot beef, vegetable and rice soup recipe from Joyful Homemaking as soon as it’s cool here. I can’t wait for the cooler weather and some yummy soup like this.

Nightmares titleHee hee… Jacolyn Murphy invites friends to a Night Mare Horsing Around Halloween Party complete with pony rides and a pumpkin patch. A very clever and fun invitation.
