Are you ready to party with us?
Thank you all so much for understanding why Inspiration Friday had to take a little break last week!
Things were kinda crazy around the Fence last weekend with Heather speaking at the Southern Bloggers Conference and also getting her hands on the November issue of Better Homes & Gardens with the feature of her kitchen makeover!
and Vanessa partnering with LG at the Wine and Food Festival in NYC.
Here she is with winning reader Mia White at the “Sweet” Godiva event sponsored by LG and featuring Sandra Lee from the Food Network!
Be sure to come back Monday when Vanessa will share more of her amazing experiences in the Big Apple!
But, we are so happy to be back here with all of you and can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to in the past 2 weeks.

Let’s check out our Inspiration Friday Features now, shall we?
Jennifer from Dimples and Tangles transformed her daughter’s room from “little girl sweet” to “sophisticated and chic”. Check out those awesome lamps!
Jeri from Decorating Hemlock gave her dining room a beautiful makeover and we absolutely love how she stacked this shelving unit over a dresser to create a one-of-a-kind display area.
Joanne from Double Wide in the Sky will always feel like she is in a luxury hotel when she is in her gorgeous new bedroom!
Kathryn from The Dedicated House gave her banister a fresh new look by staining the railing. You have to see the before to appreciate this fantastic after!
Another staircase makeover came to us from Diedre of Simply Sophisticated. Charm and character was the name of the game here and we think she achieved both!
INSPIRED CRAFTS and CREATIONS
Cristina from Remodelando la Casa showed us how to make this fantastic DIY Window Bench perfect for reading or just daydreaming. Brings out the little girl in all of us, doesn’t it?
Kate from Salvage Dior proved that elegance doesn’t have to mean expensive when she transformed Dollar Tree trays into works of art!
An Anglo in Quebec showed us how she built this amazing Fire Pit into the hillside of her backyard! We can imagine many a evening gathered around it’s warmth.
INSPIRED RECIPES and PARTIES
Sylvia from Sylvia’s Simple Life makes her family’s traditional Autumn Picnic look like the cover of a L.L. Bean catalog and this is only a glimpse of how amazing it is!
Kelly from Smart School House shared with us the recipe for this “Teacher-tini” and we think it definitely earns an A+!
INSPIRED FALL DECOR
Angie from Beneath the Magnolias shared with us the tutorial for making this gorgeous “No Sew Pumpkin Applique Pillow” and we think she gave Pottery Barn a run for their money!
Ashley from Cherished Bliss showed us how she made this darling Cheesecloth Pumpkin and we just love how unique and rustic it looks!
Allison from The Golden Sycamore showed off her Fall “Fantel” and it is so fresh and lovely!
Alecia from Chicken Scratch showed us how she made these Hot Glue Spider Webs and we think this is seriously clever and creative!
Jill from Create.Craft.Love gave an antique window a spooky face lift with the help of the Raven in a Birdcage graphic.
Our friend Kerry from House TalkN is putting her big girl pants on and taking care of her health, motivated by the fact that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And, this is the face she makes when she thinks about having to go get a mammogram!
Kathie from Krafty Kat shared with us what happened when stress got the better of her and 5 Ways she could have avoided it!
