You may or may not know that one of the sister’s At the Picket Fence lives in the Northwest. And well, since it IS Earth Day, we thought you should see just how Vanessa decided to celebrate this year.
Everyone thinks that Northwest folks are all “tree huggers” anyway, so she thought she would try and live up to the reputation! She was going to wear a flannel shirt and then she realized she didn’t actually own one.
Guess she hasn’t really adapted to the culture there yet!
Her kids were looking at her like she had lost her mind but hey, the girls at the Fence have no shame!
Now in all seriousness, we really do think this is a pretty incredible world we live in!
And we do our part to be good stewards of our resources.
But to be honest, we really value PEOPLE more than anything else.
Which is why this week, there will be a larger number of Features.
There was just so much great inspiration from last week’s party that we are going to
our words so we can feature more folks who were able to
items and transform them into something entirely new.
As well as those who like to
and repurpose things that many would just throw away.
So, let’s get to it!
Ladder Laundry Rack from Little Lucy Lu. (Try saying that five times fast!)
Vintage Pendant Light from Three Pixie Lane
Airplane Wall Art made from a fence by Kim at Too Much Time on My Hands.
Painted Sign made from a piece of wood found under the washing machine.
Shared with us by Creative Carmella.
Two pallet headboards
Console Table made out of pipes and an antique door from Designing Emily.
Rolling Toy Box from Camelot Art Creations
Window frame turned Jewelry Holder from Life.Love.Larson
Sign made from Barn Wood at Forty-Year-Old Ranch.
Now, don’t forget to grab your Featured At Button if you were featured at today’s party or during the week as a Facebook Feature! We have started featuring several links during the week on our Facebook page, so make sure you join us over there to see if you are featured! (did we say the word feature enough?? grin.)
Thanks for joining us at the fence on this very “GOOD” Friday!

Can’t hurt to hug a tree every now and then.
I love your first feature with the ladder in the laundry. I have one of those but it’s not half as pretty.
I hope you beautiful girls have a blessed Easter and thanks for everything you do for blog land. Party’s, 101’s etc. You say you value people most and it shows. It is very much appreciated
Hi girls! I always have such a good time visiting a lot of the party links- there is so much inspiration out there! Thanks for advocating “comment love.” I know you both are busy and can’t always visit everyone, so if we each visit some of the other links and leave comments, it really would go a long way in making them feel welcome! 🙂

You don’t look all the comfortable hugging that tree, Vanessa! I hope your kids had lots of giggles. You have lots of great features this week. Happy Easter to you and your family. Hugs, Kim. Oh, and buy yourself a flannel shirt ;)!
Well, hey there, Miss beautiful tree hugger! (Did you get a haircut?)
Love the features … the ladder in the mudroom is too cute!
Thanks for hosting … I hope both of you and your families have a wonderful and HAPPY EASTER !! xo, Becca
Thanks for the feature! It made my Good Friday even better!
You girls crack me up! Vanessa, you are too funny– absolutely adorable– but too funny! I was once a “tree-hugger” in Oregon, & I would be again, IF we lived in a place with trees. LOL!!! Yeah, I know we have lots of trees here in AZ, but they all have thorns of some kind. Ouch! AZ isn’t too big into “recycling” either. Bad state, bad, bad state!
Anyway, you two keep up the good work. I hope you are having fun with this blog, because it is so much fun for all of us. Have a Happy Easter!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the feature!!!
Oh … and I live in the Northwest, too – so there you go! :)~
Thanks so much for hosting the party!
Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door says
Just look at all those talented people! You featured some amazing ideas. Thank you!
Wishing you both a very Blessed Easter!
Gracie's Cottage says
What a fun party…thanks for hosting! Off to get inspired!
Hey sweet friends! Thank you for all your support and prayers this past week!
I have linked up my “Floating Easter Egg Tree” #122
Have a BLESSED Easter!
I am BLESSED to have you girls as my Friends:)
Vanessa, you make me laugh! Have a blessed Easter! 🙂
Hello, thanks so much for stopping by – this has been a fun and interesting party – I am not a ‘tree hugger’ either – I just think it is common sense to be responsible for reusing – great for crafts – reducing – and recycling – I think we’ve seen a lot of very interesting ways to do just that – thanks for hosting this fun party,
Those are such great features!!! So much inspiration:)
It’s the first time I’m linking here, new follower, Thank You for hosting this great party:)
LOVE the tree hugging!
