I have such a fun book that I’m reviewing today. Craft-a-Day by Sarah Goldschadt is a simple and whimsical craft resource. I just love looking at the cover and the cute projects inside. It’s jam packed with patterns, instructions and over 400 photographs.

The Inspiration Board: link party [71]



Thank you for joining me for the Inspiration Board link party.  Whether you’re linking up a project or visiting for inspiration I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by. I know how busy life gets - especially this time of year and I truly appreciate each and every visit, comment and link.

Are you ready for Halloween? Costumes made? Decorations up? Candy purchased, eaten and replenished?  I still have to make my son's costume but I have plenty of time... right? I can't wait to see what you've been up to. I’ll be going through the projects and featuring some on Friday.

Celebrations: halloween scary jars




Since I don’t have little kids in the house I can decorate a little bit more ghoulish for Halloween. I’ve seen various spins on pictures in jars and scary altered portraits and I thought I’d combine the two ideas and make some Halloween Scary Jars.

Blog Rust RemoverPhoto Sources: photo 1photo 2, photo 3photo 4

I love crisp white linens and towels - like these beautiful vintage linens found on Pinterest. Nothing looks cleaner than bright whites. Unless of course, you get a stain. Most stains can be removed with a spot remover or by bleaching the heck out of it. But not a rust stain.

It’s October! I’m officially bringing out the pumpkins. This year, I wanted to do something different with my pumpkin décor and keep things natural. So where do you start to get that true natural pumpkin look? At the dollar store, of course.
