UPCYCLING: Storage Jars with Mod Podge Knobs

Recycled Jars with painted lids and faux ceramic knobs
One can never have enough storage jars in my opinion. I’ve been saving up jars and love how these bright and cheery jars turned out. They’re the perfect size for smaller pantry items.

THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 279 | Fall Touches

The Inspiration Board FeaturesThis is the time of year when I torn between Halloween treats, fall decor and pre-holiday prep. There’s so much going on it’s hard to focus. Lists include handmade gifts for the holidays, Thanksgiving prep, holiday cards and so much more. It’s hard not to get a little twitchy and stressed. It’s good to take time to decompress and find inspiration. I so enjoyed going through all the links this week. It’s one of my favorite things to do. A cup of coffee and a quiet morning and inspiration galore. I hope you find a few quiet moments to enjoy the features this week.

SHOW & TELL: 4th Annual Handmade Holiday Link Up | Gift Guide

There's something special about a handmade gift. Whether you made it yourself or purchased it, handmade is unique and thoughtful. I love supporting handmade products and I used to have an Etsy Shop but gave it up to focus on this blog and my day job. 

Every year I host a Handmade Holiday Link Up. It's a chance for shop owners and artisans to share their wares. From the links, I create a Handmade Holiday Gift Guide to help boost your sales for the holidays.

HOME ROOM: Dining Room -A Touch of Fall

Fall Tables Rustic Charm with Aged Terra CottaIf my decorating schedule went by the weather, I’d be sharing some coastal d├ęcor complete with shells and sea glass. In my neck of the woods, we nearly hit 100 degrees this week. Even though it’s sweltering, I’m going by the calendar and the calendar says it’s officially fall.

THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 277 | White Fall Accents

Thank goodness so much Fall Inspiration was shared on The Inspiration Board because I’m currently roasting in 90+ degree weather. I’m dreaming of soups, sweaters and pumpkins while wearing shorts and flip flops. That’s okay… here in Southern California we pretend it’s autumn.

Enjoy all of these wonderful projects featured from The Inspiration Board creative party. This time of year it gets harder and harder to choose the features because everyone is bringing their A-game. In case you haven’t had a chance to pop by lately, first up a little recap of what I’ve been sharing.
