THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 266 & Berry Good

Welcome back everyone and happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend filled with fun, creativity, and of course, relaxation. We installed a doggy door for our little Sammy this weekend. She getting older and needing to go out more frequently and those middle of the night trips outside are getting old. It’s reminiscent of the baby feedings and since I’ve been there, done that,  we’re hoping the doggy door will solve the problem. I like to call it the door of freedom.

That’s Sammy in the photo above. She photo bombed my Bedroom Makeover pictures. Some other projects I’ve shared recently are the Ice Cream Mini Tarts with Sugared Berries and a Dress Code Summer Fashion post where I brave a pair of shorts.

I know you’ll love the projects featured this week from The Inspiration Board link party. As always, I try to feature a variety of projects – décor, recipes, crafts and more. Enjoy!
