Be Inspired Features and Link Party #48

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back for features and party day!
 

December has finally arrived and the holiday season has officially begun.  But doesn't it seem like it really started weeks ago? December just might be my favorite month of the year, but sometimes it feels like you need to have all the decorating done, the presents wrapped and the cookies baked by December 1st or else you are already way behind. That's a lot of pressure. I hope you are taking your time and enjoying every moment!
 
I know that I enjoyed all the fabulous links you shared last week. Here are just a few that caught my eye...
 
 
Can you believe that this chair was once covered with green eagles? Doreen from Hymns and Verses studied slipcover tutorials and worked some serious sewing magic on this beauty!
 
 
Then Susan over at Uniquely Yours or Mine! worked some magic of her own on this gorgeous tufted chair, complete with 35 covered buttons!
 
 
Last week I featured a lovely French Provincial dresser in blue from Sue at Uniquely Chic. This week Sue shared the matching highboy, but this one got a completely different look. And thanks to a missing pull, she had the opportunity to make it even more special!
 
  
Lily Field Furniture always has beautiful furniture pieces to share, like this amazing soft grey highboy!
 
 
Or maybe this antique glass cabinet is you favorite. I love the contrast of the beautiful paper backing!
 
 
So what do you do when the table of your dreams costs well over your budget? Well you build your own of course! And that's just what happened over at  Carissa Miss.

 
From bright shiny gold to soothing blue, this yard sale find chandelier from Restoration Redoux is simply stunning!
 

Nancy at The Headmistress took a collection of treasures that all had special meaning and created this lovely one-of-a-kind wreath!

 
 Then Aimee from Twigg Studios shared  her beautiful snowy pinecone wreath, along with tips on how to get closed pinecones to open. You know how much I love pinecones!

 
 And how pretty is this rustic nature inspired tablescape from Creative Country Mom's!

 
 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...

* 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 add it to your post or link back in some way. You must have a visible link back to be considered for a feature!
* And 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!
