Be Inspired Features and Link Party #16

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back for features and party day!

 

You know I really thought this would get easier, but I'm finding it harder and harder to pick features every week. There are just so many great projects linked up. I want to feature every single one! I really hope that when you are here to link up, you take some time to browse around a bit. I promise that you will be inspired! Now here are just a few links that caught my eye this week .....

Adina from My Simple Country Life shared these upcycled wood frame wall flower vases. I love them and I am totally stealing this idea!


Revi from Revisionary Life created this pretty vignette for her living room. I love the mix of industrial, elegant and cottage elements!


You know how much I love yellow, so this beautiful chest from Deb at Twice Nice had me at hello!


Cyndi from Blue Star Antiques said she found the perfect antidote for "forgettable" when she transformed these little end tables. I totally agree!


Not only do I look forward to all the creative projects from Twigg Studios, but I really appreciate the nicely detailed tutorials. Check out these pretty flower pillows - so soft and luxurious!

I am a huge fan of signs! Carrie from Lovely, etc used a beautiful stormy gray on this one and I love the font. I asked - it's called Riesling. I knew you'd want to know!


I am so looking forward to meeting Connie from Hartwood Roses at the Lucketts Spring Market this year. She's bringing this big beautiful buffet!




Check out this beaufully distressed bold aqua and bright green combination from Kathy at Petticoat Junction. The seat was covered with a $2 skirt she found in a thrift store. What a clever girl!

I wrote this on a chalkboard in my house in January when my husband and I celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary. Gail from My Repurposed Life created this rustic sign from pieces of reclaimed fence wood. Needless to say, I love it!


CJ from Juniper and Roses used turquoise for the very first time on this adorable petite chest of drawers with the most amazing pulls. I think there will be more turquoise in her future!


And last , but not least, how delicious does this buttermilk pound cake look? Deana from Country Momma Cooks shared the recipe. This is a classic, perfect for any occasion!


Thanks so much to everyone who linked up and linked back! If you've been featured, feel free to grab a cute little button from the sidebar!





Now on to this week's party! The guidelines are simple...

* Link up your furniture makeovers, DIY projects, home decor, crafts, recipes, thrifty finds, etc... We want to see whatever is inspiring you at the moment!


* Grab a party button and please add it to your post!


* Be sure to follow along with us!


* We'll be back next week with features and a brand new party!


Now let's share some inspiration!
