THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 254 & Pretty in Pink

Welcome back everyone. I hope you had a fabulous weekend. We had summer weather here in Southern California. We enjoyed temperatures in the 80’s along the coast and it felt wonderful. I worked on the master bedroom makeover some more and my aching muscles are proof of the progress I’m making. I got the rest of the bureaus painted and the curtains hung. Hooray for progress. I hope your weekend was filled with nice weather and fun things.

In case you haven’t had a chance to drop in lately, here’s what I’ve been sharing.

Ready for the features? They are amazing as always.
