THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 258 & Lemon Lime Time

Welcome back friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I got back in town from a week of business travel and spent the weekend catching up on all things house. When you leave the husband and teen son home alone you never know what you’ll come home to. We also celebrated a belated Mother’s Day with my mom so between unpacking and laundry, I needed to get to the grocery store, restock the kitchen and make her a special dessert.

And, of course one of my favorite things to do each weekend is to grab a cup of coffee and soak in the projects shared on The Inspiration Board so I can choose the features. So let’s get to the projects featured in the Spotlight this week.
