The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 185 & Inspiring Stitches

Hey, hey, hey friends. I’ll keep this short and sweet because it’s been an insane week and I’m sure you are just as busy. I was sort of counting on a slow week at work so I could get some blogging and holiday prep done but work was crazy with a capital C. It will be a mad dash to the finish line but as always, end with a joyous holiday. Enjoy the weekend everyone. I’ll see you back here on Monday.

And, in if you missed anything on homework this week, here’s what I shared.

And now for the projects in the spotlight this week.

My-Christmas-Home-Tour-2014-9A beautiful Christmas home tour by the Painted Hinge. Loads of charming décor and beautiful furnishings with so many details you’ll just have to pop over and see the entire tour.

IMG_8662_hfMoois Van Me created beautiful holiday earrings with crystal bugle beads and red balls. Perfect for a festive occasion.

cardboard_gingerbread_houses_024_littleredwindowHow gorgeous are these cardboard gingerbread houses by Little Red Window! Beautifully crafted and constructed from throw away cardboard with white paint pen detail to mimic the icing. Love these!

smoked-salmon-benedict1-1024x680I love eggs benedict. They are one of my favorite things for an indulgent brunch or breakfast. This smoked salmon eggs benedict by Army Wife to Suburban Life elevates plain old eggs benedict to a new gourmet level.

vintage chairs redoIt’s hard not to smile when you look at these vintage kitchen chair made over by Redo It Yourself Inspiration. Cheery red gingham with piping and nail heads complete the look of the fifties chairs.

Kreativna ideja uradi sam - božićno drvce 017A charming pallet tree by Bijana Shabby all decked out for Christmas with tiny little wooden toys. This would be a fun accent piece for a child’s room.

BirchTrees21I love this painted canvas by The Party Fetti Blog. The image was transferred onto the canvas but then all the detail was hand painted. A beautiful work of art that will work for all seasons.

550x825xRaspberry-and-Beetroot-Jelly-3.png.pagespeed.ic.OWLt6YrVLQAnnie’s Noms brings us raspberry and beetroot jelly with spiced panna cotta. A beautiful and unusual dessert that would make an impact on the holiday table.

2015printcalendarYou’ll want to head over to Lemon Thistle and grab her free printable calendars. She has designed three different styles – a list, perpetual and monthly,. I love the clean design especially printed on that nice white cardstock.
