Oh Summer! Where are you going? Doesn’t it seem this summer has just flown by?! While many of you (including Vanessa) are getting in some last minute family vacations, several of you already have kiddos heading back to school! It’s hard to believe Autumn is right around the corner…but with all of the Pinterest Pins we’ve seen start to show up, we know those Fall Projects and Posts are on your minds!
. Please contact us through our contact page and we’ll put you in touch with Kelly. And THANK YOU to Kelly of Live.Laugh.Rowe for sponsoring the giveaway!
Heather couldn’t let this Inspiration Friday get started without giving a big shout-out to Kim of Too Much Time on My Hands for her Better Homes and Garden Photo Shoot! This post was special to Heather since Kim also got to experience the awesome BHG duo of Stacey and Edmund!
Stacey and Edmund shot Heather’s BHG Kitchen Shoot. These two are the most amazing and fabulous BHG team members ever! So happy for you Kim! Can’t wait to see your feature!
Decorating Ideas Made Easy turned her Master Bedroom into a Beach Retreat! We adore the door headboard and the soft soothing colors. A perfect place to “get away”.
We met Becky of Organizing Made Fun at Haven, and she is one talented gal! Check out her Potting Shed Makeover! The color combination is just gorgeous..and she’s taken organizing to a whole new level!
Rugs can be so expensive! So Jen from Four Mars and One Venus decided to create her own Stenciled Rug! We think it’s fabulous.
CRAFTS AND CREATIONS
Carrie from Hooked On Decorating shows us how to Give Brass an Aged Patina in this great post. Check out how she aged the brass on this beautiful globe.
Shari from Turnstyle Vogue turned vintage trash into this darling DIY Vintage Wine Tote! She didn’t let her husband’s teasing stop her when she told him what she was going …and we’re glad because we think this wine tote is absolutely darling! Get a glass ready for us Shari!
Jessica of Mom 4 Real shared her Freezer Paper Stencil Tutorial and the results with us. Her Ampersand Pillow turned out beautifully! Good job Jessica!
This low cost, easy to create Beachy Tablescape from Richella of Imparting Grace created for her porch makes us want to spend our last few days of summer at the beach!
Barbara of 21 Rosemary Lane and her friend Donna fulfilled a dream and we were so inspired by her story! Talk about deserving “a medal”! Read this amazing and story of friendship, a dream and going for the gold!
