It’s Inspiration Friday No. 83! Welcome!

Howdy, howdy friends? How are ya?
Hope this week has been treating you well and if it hasn’t…well…at least it’s almost over, right?
Have you seen what we’ve been up to around the Fence this week?
Vanessa’s been holding down the fort while Heather is in Atlanta and she shared with you here

Jute Webbing Pumpkin
And she revealed her Under Stairs Closet turned Butler’s Pantry.
We hope you will check them out if you haven’t already.
And now, let’s take a look at some of the amazing links from last week!


Holly from Down to Earth Style shared her beautiful family with us. Check out how she transformed her fireplace and made the most of the built-in cubby TV hole!
Ange from The Blooming Hydrangea shared her Pretty Pantry Makeover and we think all those snacks and cereals feel like total rock stars now!
Nicki from The Vintage Farmhouse showed off this wonderfully Shabby Chic Girl’s room and it is just filled with vintage pieces and tons of charm!


We love this Upcycled Piano Bench  that Anna from Ask Anna did as part of her beautiful 
Front Porch Makeover!
We are completely in love with this incredible John Deere Inspired Mailbox Makeover from Laura at Top This Top That! 


This idea for Framing Keepsakes from Amanda of My Heart’s Desire may or may not have made Vanessa choke up remembering the days of playing trains with her own sweet boy. Sniff…sniff.
Kim from Reposhture showed us how she created this incredible Pallet Wood Art as a gift for a very special friend!
Erica from The Deuel Family Blog showed us how she created this 
DIY Wood School Calendar to aid in her homeschooling. Her kids put their own “stamp” on it and we think that makes it all the more special!
homeschool corner


Kirstin from Craftiments showed us how she made this gorgeous Falling Leaves Art thanks to a little help from the Dollar Tree!

Craftiments:  Falling Leaves Mixed Media Art

Laura from Our Prairie Home  shared her stunning Fall mantel complete with a wonderful old farmhouse window.
Once again, Kristin from Simply Klassic Home knocked our socks off when she shared this incredible Canning Jar Lid Pumpkin. How cool and creative is this?!!

Karen from Quinton Wench showed us how she made this beautiful Autumnal Candle and we are loving it’s simple elegance.

Kimberly from Serendipity Refined made this incredible Harvest Cart. That’s right, she made the actual cart before she filled it up with all of that Fall gorgeousness!


Sarah from Simply Albany gave us wonderful instructions for making Sushi and we are fairly certain she must have written this post just for us since we love us some 
California Rolls here at the Fence!
Not only are we sushi lovin’ fools but we also really love Pumpkin Spiced Lattes…although not with the sushi cause that would be strange!
So we were so excited to see this recipe from Jennifer at Sometimes Homemade for a 
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte. It costs a lot less than Starbucks too!


We were so excited when we heard that a dream was coming true for our friend Aimee at It’s Overflowing. She’s being published in an awesome cookbook called Chili Cook Off in a Box!
She’s also launched a brand new blog called Barns and Noodles (how cute is that?!) and we would love to have you pay her a visit there!
