Welcome to Inspiration Friday No. 65!

Inspiration Friday Graphic1
First of all, let us just say a big ol’ thank you to everyone for the sweet 40th Birthday wishes for Heather last week! You are all the best!

Now, we have the little matter of announcing the winner of the Eco Natural Soap Giveaway.

And the winner is…

Congratulations and please contact us via email so that we can put you in contact with the wonderful folks at Eco Natural Soap.

And, we are so excited to welcome our newest Sponsor to the Fence, lilla rose Hair Jewelry 


Where you can find gorgeous hair jewelry like this:

We are thrilled to have Jackie partnering with us!

Now, how about a recap of what’s been happening around the Fence this week?

On Sunday, Vanessa shared the latest installment of her Labor of the Heart series and we got to learn more about what Mother’s Day means to her.

Next, Heather showed us How to Age New Garden Pots .

And then Vanessa showed us how she turned an old kitchen cupboard into this DIY Dartboard Cabinet.

Well, now that you’ve seen what we’ve been up to, let’s take a look at some of the
Features from last week!



Bethany of Pitter and Glink revealed her “super organized, amazingly beautiful, makes me want to do a happy dance Craft Room Makeover” and we couldn’t agree with her sentiments more!
This is just such a darling playroom created by Suzy at Worthing Court for her granddaughters!
Check out that cool pendant light and the fabulous fabric!
Every time we pay a virtual visit to the gorgeous home of Mary Ann from Classic Casual Home we feel like we are looking through the pages of a magazine! And last week was no exception when she showed us her beautiful Spring/Summer Living Room.
Ahhhh…we can almost here the ocean in the distance.

The talented Kate from Salvage Dior turned an old director’s chair (found curbside of course) into this fabulous coffee table! And do you see that round end table over there in the corner? That was made using an old water bottle stand! How cool and clever is that?!
Little Miss Maggie turned old cabinet doors into these beautiful French Menu signs!
We just love all of the charm and character she game them and how authentic they look. We can almost imagine we are sitting at a beautiful bistro in Paris!
Sarah from Welcome to the Good Life gave us a great tutorial on dying jeans to keep up with the latest trend. We are loving the minty color she created and now we would just like her to also show us how to look that good in them! Winking smile
Shari from Turnstyle Vogue showed us how to make these fantastic PB Knock-Off Rope and Glass Gloches and we think even Jack Sparrow would approve of them!
And while things are being knocked-off, check out this DIY Factory Cart Table inspired by Restoration Hardware and shared with us by Amy at The Blissful Bee! She gives an excellent tutorial on how to make this which only added to how impressed we are by her talent!
We know quite a few kiddos (and adults!) who are going to want this next feature at their birthday party!
How adorable is this Paper Mache Angry Birds Pig? It was shared with us by Molly from Just a Little Creativity and she gives a full tutorial on how to make this yourself!
Margarita Cupcakes? Ummm…yes please!! Joanne from Double Wide in the Sky shared this incredible recipe and we think that it is a match made in heaven for sure!

Adoption is so near and dear to we Picket Fence girls, which is why we just loved the guest post written by Cyndi of Walking After Midnight and shared with us by Inspired by Family Magazine!

    Hi Vanessa and Heather! I hope y’all have had a great week! Mine has been so busy that I’m really late getting this post written and linked, but I’m so glad to be here. I love to write posts about how I decorate my house, but I also love the fact that this party is not limited just to home decor. I thank you so much for giving me a place to share my story!
