Weekend Link Party #135 and Fabulous Features plus Tutorials!


Happy Holidays!!!  This is the last link party of 2013!  I am taking the week off next week with the link party to enjoy my family and friends.  The link party will be back the following week with all the amazing features from this week’s party.

THANK YOU!!  to everyone who has shared their talent here.  Each week I am inspired, awed, and sometimes (a little envious) of the amazing talent all of you share with me and each other each and every day.

I am hoping for some down time after this week.  Finals are over for oldest daughter in High School and will be over the middle schoolers today too.  Most of the holiday baking is done, presents are wrapped….I still have Paris Flea Market coming up the first weekend of January, but for now, I am going to chillax and enjoy the season.

One more thing…. Everything featured here is pinned to my REDOUX FEATURES board on Pinterest! And, if you want a little insight on what is happening at Redoux, check my side bar and like me on Facebook!

On with les features!

Maybe I will sort through my piles of books and think about book page crafts!  I love this ornament with book pages from Rachel at Maison de Pax.  There is a beautiful tutorial that goes with it, go check it out. There is still time to make one!

This Nightstand from Revived by Delia is the perfection of chippy goodness.  She used Milk Paint on a simple Nightstand, we have probably all seen many versions of this nightstand.  I love the depth of the blue, and the perfect distressing.  This is a lovely example of why I love painted furniture so much!

I love everything about this project from Artsy Va Va.   Virginia lucked into a bunch of Tin Tiles, and held onto them until inspiration struck, and strike it did!  I love the simply painted little trees, but they look so vintagey perfect on the otherwise sad but cool looking tiles.  This is a Redoux!

Back to those book pages…..I have been seeing this project around the blogosphere, and I was so thrilled that  Diane from An Extraordinary Day shared them at my link party!  These are just the cutest trees, and I love the little ornaments on top!  This was one of her most popular posts from last year and she graciously shared it again.  Go check it out and hop over to her simple tutorial!

Now for le technical details: PLEASE TURN OFF WORD VERIFICATION!!!!! If you are not sure, double check. It is the bane of the blogging world.

Party Ettiquette…..Please grab the button (you can copy and link back or grab code HERE) and display this button on your post and link back. Not linking back is kind of like coming to a party, grabbing some food, and never saying “hi” to the hostess. Please be nice!

    I agree with you Karen . . . there is so much talent out there that at times I too am a little envious. Who needs Martha? Have a wonderful Christmas with your family and enjoy some rest.
