THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 274 & A Dog’s Life

Today is Labor Day in the United States. A day where we celebrate the achievements of workers and  the contributions that workers have made for our country. In the past, school used to start right after Labor Day so it unofficially marked the end of summer. Now schools are starting much earlier but in my mind, Labor Day still means the end of summer. If you’re in the U.S. I hope you’re enjoying the 3-day weekend. I’m actually flying out today for a week of business travel. So while I finish packing and head to the airport, sit back and enjoy the projects featured from The Inspiration Board.
First up, here’s what I’ve been sharing here on homework.

Tea-Cart-Makeover-015The Navage Patch always amazes and this tea cart makeover is not exception. Just gorgeous.

Fall-Rustic-Trough-5I can’t wait to get back from my business trip and start adding some fall to my home. Domestically Speaking has a head start and made this beautiful Autumn Trough.

Gail's Art 4Forever Decorating shares this stunning jewelry art.

Mango-Ice-Cream-Recipe-768x1151Even though it beginning to feel like fall, ice cream is for every season. Peach Mango Ice Cream by She Saved.

IMG_1021Love and Renovations shares this darling DIY Growth Chart.

easy-fall-Hydrangea-wreath What a perfect fall wreath. Garden Therapy not only shows us how to make this wreath but gives us tips on drying hydrangeas, retaining color and growing them.

Bacon-Bourbon-Caramel-Popcorn-3I love caramel popcorn and Cooking in Stilettos raises the caramel popcorn bar with this Bacon Bourbon Caramel Popcorn recipe.

DIY-natural-birch-bark-candle-H2OBunglow-Stunning Birch Bark Candle Holder by H2O Bungalow and it’s fascinating to see how the bark is collected, stored and then used in a project. Ah, I wish I had a forest of birch tress to wander through.

maple-glazed-oatmeal-cookie-sticks-2These look mighty tempting. Maple Glazed Oatmeal Cookie Sticks by Cookie Dough and Oven Mitt.

Peach-Sangria-Photo-3-683x1024Cravings of a Lunatic shares this Peach Sangria and even though we’re saying goodbye to summer, there’s still plenty of time for dining al fresco and enjoying some sangria.


Thanks so much for stopping by.
