Etceteras: fabric covered storage jars

Some craft supplies are too pretty to tuck away in bins and drawers. I love looking at my vintage buttons and scraps of lace and ribbon so I like to keep them in jars.

The Inspiration Board: link party spotlight ~89~

Happy Friday everyone! Did you survive the day of love? Some people love Valentine’s Day and some people don’t. I like to keep things low key around here. A special home cooked dinner, dessert and family. No matter how you spent your Valentine’s Day, I hope it was filled with the most important thing… love!

Now on to the features. The Inspiration Board was brimming with Valentine ideas. Tons of inspiration to file and pin for next year. There were also plenty of home décor, recipe, and craft ideas. If you linked up a project, thank you for sharing your creativity.

Here are the projects in the spotlight this week.
