Welcome to Inspiration Friday No. 50!

Inspiration Friday Graphic1
Hey there party people!
Can this really be the 50th Inspiration Friday???
That doesn’t seem possible!

But, we suppose that since we just celebrated our 1 year Blogiversary that it shouldn’t come as a surprise. And speaking of our Blogiversary…did you know we have an incredible Giveaway going on right now? It’s not too late to enter to win this:

$100 Gift Card
HomeGoods (also good at TJ Maxx!)

AND an additional giveaway for a $50.00 Gift Card to Homegoods or TJ Maxx on our Facebook Page! So, if you’re not following us over there, we’d love to have you join us!

Two announcements before we dive into our Features from last week.

We want to welcome another new sponsor of At The Picket Fence!  The lovely

The Pink Giraffe is very generously offering a discount code to friends of At The Picket Fence.  Just put in: PICKETFENCE when you check out and receive a 10% discount off your entire order! Seriously people you will LOVE this website!

AND did you see THIS POST! We want to give a special invitation to OUR readers to become a part of a brand new Follower option! If you were as sad as we were at the news of losing GFC for non-blogger blogs (and the rumor it will go away for everyone eventually) then you will love this new option!

Visit the post to get all of the details!

Now, how about some features?

Our mouths still might be hanging open from when we first laid eyes on this incredible transformation from Ashley of A to Being Creations! She created the most darling Playhouse for her kids by using the space underneath her stairs. You have to see the details on this one to believe it!
Spheres seem to be all the rage right now in home décor and we are so digging these DIY versions made by Jess from Hill Country Homebody! They are constructed using embroidery hoops and she has a fantastic tutorial on how she put these together. Love em!
Jennifer Cooks shared the recipe for this yummy Blueberry Breakfast Cake.
We agree with her that any time you can have cake for breakfast
means your day is off to a great start!

Jennifer also shared with us this incredible Kit Kat Ice Cream Cake! We could definitely see this one calling out to us in the middle of the night to come and take just a “little” nibble. And another one…and another one!

We cannot get enough of the projects being done over at Remodelando La Casa! Cristina has been sharing some of her incredible home renovations and last week she showed us this gorgeous
Fireplace Transformation.

Now, not only is the lovely Abbie from Five Days 5 Ways super funny and super stylish, she’s also always up for a challenge. So when she issued herself a Goodwill Challenge to find 3 full outfits in 30 minutes she knew it wouldn’t be easy, but we think she really rocked it out! And, she did it with 3 kiddos in tow. She should get a prize just for that!

We love a good upcycle here at the Fence and this DIY Sisal Tray from the Naptime Decorator is just fantastic! You would never know that underneath that sisal rope is an old cookie sheet, would you? Awesome!
And finally, we just love this Chalk/Wine Cork Board created by One More Time! She created this from a $5 Goodwill frame and we think it looks like it belongs in the Pottery Barn catalog. So cool!

    I’m so happy to participate today! I always post my projects on Mondays and miss the party and then I’m not catching up on blogs on the correct day and miss it again. Today the stars have aligned! 😉 I love the features! Those muffins…yum! Definitely see some things in the links that are catching my eye. :)

    Have a blessed night!
