Inspiration Friday Graphic_thumb[3]
Wowee!! We think we might have broken a record at last week’s party with 435 links!
Want to know something about us?
Each week it still amazes us to see those links pop up after we publish the party post.
We never stop being humbled and honored that you would choose to share your talent and creativity here with us and we hope you know how much we appreciate all of you!
Now, speaking of being appreciative…we still can’t believe that we get to host the incredible GIVEAWAY we have going on right now.
Would you like to go to New York City??
LG is offering one lucky At the Picket Fence Reader a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly to NYC and attend the Food Network Wine and Food Festival!

We’ve got a lot of fun projects coming up in the next few weeks so be sure to come on back and see what will be happening around the Fence!
But, for now, let’s get so some Features, shall we?


Shirley from Housepitality Designs shared her gorgeous Foyer complete with her incredible Stained Glass Window…which has it’s own story!
Pam from Simple Details revealed the incredible transformation she made to her son’s room and we think she lived up to her blog name and then some. This room is so cool and has amazing details!

Cindy from Beaux R’eves gave a pair of benches she found at the ReStore a beautiful makeover and now they fit perfectly in her gorgeous mountain home!
We absolutely love this Mudroom Makeover from Maury at Life on Mars. Details like those beautiful corbels add so much character!
Laundry Room Makeover


How clever is this Mirror Pendant from our Danish friend at Monster’s Circus? She gives an excellent tutorial on how to make this and don’t worry, you can translate it into English!
Rukmini from the blog Trumatter showed us how to make a beautiful DIY Vintage Pouch from Shirt Sleeves. So clever!
So, technically this one should be under our “Fall” category but since it filled up so quickly we had to share it here! We absolutely love this idea for a Fall Activity Tree shared with us by Alex of Alex Nguyen Portraits.


It’s easy to see why BHG would come knocking on Becca’s door to feature her fall mantel from last year when you see the amazing job she did with it this year! Head on over to Adventures in Decorating for more awesome ideas!
Debra from Common Ground can give just about anything the “Fall Treatment” including this Vintage Chicken Feeder!
Jennifer from Decorating Made Easy showed us how she made this adorable ghost using a tomato stand!
Keri from Shaken Together showed us how she made this darling Rustic Wooden Candy Corn Banner. It’s the only kind that won’t give you a cavity!


Kale Chips are all the rage these days and Jenni from Mom Essentials shared with us the recipe for an easy version that is big on healthy flavor!
Laura from Storybook Reality tried out this Giada De Laurentiis recipe for Prosciutto Melon Soup and declared it to be a new family favorite!


Tricia from Thoroughly Modern Me shared a beautiful story of 1,000 Wishes made in honor of an important milestone in her daughter’s life.
The lovely Lauren from mercyINK shared a wonderful “Prayer of Surrender” for new moms and we just love her insights into this sweet yet challenging season of life.

    Good Morning, Girls! Thank you for hosting! So glad I can link up here this week. I am sharing a more personal post since my sister is getting married next week. I’ve shared some pictures, memories, and I talk about the personal shower I threw her!
    Have a beautful and blessed day!

    Hey girls! I linked up earlier, but was having trouble with my computer and wasn’t able to leave a comment. (Gave me the willies to think about my computer’s being messed up–too much work on here that’s not saved anywhere else. Yikes!)

    Anyway, I just wanted to tell you thank you for hosting. Y’all do such a wonderful job with this party–no wonder you have so many linkers!! (Is that what we’re called–linkers?).

    Have a great weekend!
