Link Party #112! And the Fabulous Features


Happy almost weekend!  I hope you are all enjoying your summer.  I have been having a little too much non-stop fun.  Travels to Las Vegas.  This week my sister and my niece have been here, we have been playing tourist all week.  I apologize if you have emailed or commented and I have not gotten back to you.  I am about as behind on my inbox as the size of a behind on an Elephant. BIG.

Enough about Moi, let’s talk about you!  Oh my, even with the holiday weekend, you people just keep on sharing your amazing creativity. Here is what I am featuring this week:

Have you seen CeCe Caldwell’s newest BLACK?  Beckley Coal.  Did you know you can make a chalkboard with any of their paints, and this new black is far better than using the smelly Chalkboard paint. Easier too.  How about some art to go with that chalkboard?  A Painted Past has some gorgeous chalkboard art!

I love to see new ways to plant flowers and vegetables outside.  From One More Time Events, they made a whole window shade with hanging planters.  The tutorial is step by step perfect so you can make one this weekend!

This is a fab upcycle from Reduce, Reuse, Renew.  She used an old outdoor tablecloth to make an upholstered seat for an outdoor bench.  Now that is my kind of Redoux!

You know how much of a Francophile I am, so I went gaga over this French Table from Cyndi at Bluestar Antiques.  She bought this table at auction, and it was in need of much TLC. Wow did  she give it a fab makeover!

I can’t get enough (STILL) of Pallet upcycles and Clocks.  From Prodigal Pieces, she has a fantastic Pallet upcycled Clock with easy to follow instructions.  I hope I have time to make one soon!

O.K., I now Thee Velvet Glove has shown up here  quite a bit, but it is so hard to not feature Lori’s things!!! She is the most original artist I have seen in a long time, and she always has the most fun stories to go with her creations.  This is “The Temptress”. I am showing the front and back of this desk because one side just isn’t enough.  Go read her post to get the story too, she is not only talented in spades, she spins a great tale!


And one more Pallet project, which I have to make ASAP.  From Deb at Lake Girl Paints, she made this adorable napkin holder from old pallets, but that isn’t all, she made a mini bunting to go on the front, which you could change up for any holiday.  I asked Deb if we could do a mind meld so she could share some of her amazing ideas and creativity with me!

Now it’s your turn to share what your creative fireworks! Take a break from the BBQ, and link up!Now for some boring rules, but BE NICE and play along:
