The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 175 & Enchanting Inspiration

I think fall has finally arrived here in Southern California. It’s still about 80 degrees but it’s dropping and the mornings have that fall chill in the air. High fives! I can finally start thinking about fall dishes, décor and outfits. Woot! I’m so excited! I know fall is in the air for a lot of you because there was so much fantastic fall creativity linked up this week. Thank you to everyone who came by this week, left a comment or shared a project. I’m so appreciative. In case you didn’t have a chance to pop in, here’s what I shared this week at here at homework.

And now for the projects in the spotlight this week:

cinnamon clove and orangeCan’t you just smell the aroma of this orange spice simmer by Simple Joys of Home? Cinnamon, cloves and oranges would definitely set the fall mood in any home.

IMG_1107Homespun with Love shares this fun Halloween Crystal Ball. A great addition to your Halloween décor.

Nordic LeggingsEtcetorize shows off her fabulous legs in these Nordic Leggings she made. They are so cute. I’m not sure I could pull off Nordic leggings - well maybe with a really, really long sweater!

DSCN1466 lunch bag pumpkinA fantastic lunch bag pumpkin by Vintage, Paint and more. The strips of paper create such a great texture and the book page leaves are the perfect topping.

How to Make a NecklaceGorgeous! My Girlish Whims has outdone herself with this Anthropologie Knock Off Necklace. Each metal piece is a hammered piece of gold wire. It’s incredible!

Hudson1I keep thinking she’s going to run out of rooms to show us but The Heathered Nest keeps unveiling more and more fantastic rooms. This beautiful room is her son’s outdoor adventure room.  Amazing denim-painted walls, tent, campfire and faux antler chandelier are just a few of the beautiful details.

danish6Little House Living shares this delicious looking Apple Danish Braid recipe. What a treat to have a slice of this for breakfast. Mmmmm.

Shabby-Chic-Fall-Wreath-Tutorial-13-782x1024The Painted Hinge brings a little shabby chic to her fall décor. This sweet frame wreath has loads of shabby fun elements: chicken wire, burlap, clothespins.

pumpkin bread 4-2Pumpkin Bread – so moist and tasty! Simply Suzannes kicks it up a notch with a cocoa streusel topping. Oh yes!

German-Sweet-Chocolate-Cake-3I don’t even want to guess how many calories are in this amazing German Sweet Chocolate Cake by The Gracious Wife. Look at those layers and all that wonderful frosting. Save me a slice…I’ll be right over.
