Hey, hey party people!
It is time for another week of inspiration and just when we think we have seen it all, you guys go and share even more amazingly creative projects, ideas, craft and recipes.
And you inspire us with your stories of family, faith and life.
It’s like one stop shopping here at Inspiration Friday!
And speaking of inspiration, we are thrilled to be welcoming 2 new Sponsors to the Fence!
Melissa of Melissa’s Cuisine shares amazingly yummy recipes on her site and we already have a long list of ones we are definitely going to be trying. Like this one for Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothies!
Linda and Carol of Two Succulent Sisters are going to be helping us make the most out of our Summer months with some fun tips and ideas!
Even something as simple as picking blueberries is made special when you are with the ones you love!
Allrighty then! Let’s get to some features from last week’s party, shall we?
Becca from Adventures in Decorating shared with us how she transformed the Sunroom in her parent’s home. The new space is just gorgeous and reflects the incredible ocean-front location!
And, speaking of beautiful Sunrooms, Kerry from HouseTalkn shared her own with us and it is one incredible makeover. We are loving the pops of color and this ironing board bar! We wouldn’t even mind ironing so much if we could make ourselves a cocktail first!
Erin from Lavender and Lemon Drops created this incredible FAUX brick wall.
It’s faux people! Amazing!
It’s faux people! Amazing!
Check out this darling Tin Buckets Makeover from Andrea of Queen B and Me! Aren’t they adorable! We can think of some many uses for them.
Jacqueline from My Simple Home Life made over and old worn out table and now it pops with fresh modern color and design!
Tammy from One More Time to Celebrate created this Tea Light Candle Centerpiece from leftover scraps from their raised garden bed project! She gives a step by step tutorial on her blog…and she’s going to send me one…hint. hint. 😉
CRAFTS and CREATIONS
Mary from At Home on the Bay showed us how to make this incredible French “Linen” Headboard and she shares a wonderful tutorial on how she created this beautiful piece.
Amy from While Wearing Heels showed us how she created this fun and charming “Timeless Clock” to help commemorate a special occasion or event.
Jill of Sew a Fine Seam created a DIY Camera Strap from a drop cloth! LOVE it, Want it!
RECIPES and PARTIES
Homespun with Love shared with us the recipe for these yummy Tart Cherry Coconut Popsicles. Cherry and coconut? Yes please!
Seriously. Only Audrey from Sweet Cheeks Tasty Treats could come up with these! She hosted a Goonies (um bringing back memories anyone??) Party for her son and made…ready for it…Sloth Cake Pops! We’re dyin’ if were lyin’…Hey You Guys…go check them out! 😉
We loved The Help! We loved Minnie and we love Chocolate Pie. Amanda from My Heart’s Desire shares the Minnie’s Chocolate Pie recipe (minus an ingredient…thank goodness!) from The Help. Yum!
Laura from Top This Top That created this frugal but oh so luxurious looking Low Cost Outdoor Cabana. This is something anyone could replicate…we’ll be over in a little bit Laura, with a book and a cocktail, to enjoy your cabana!
Our friend Karen of Redoux is the Queen of Junk…and in this case that is a TOTAL COMPLIMENT! Take a peek at this amazing outdoor room she created from…well…junk! She takes Dumpster Diving Diva to a whole new level.
INSPIRATIONAL POSTS AND STORIES
We LOVE to hear about bloggers getting the recognition for their talents that they deserve. It makes us happy to know that the “design world” is standing up and taking notice of the talent that is out there in the “real world”, Christy from eleven Magnolia Lane is no exception. Her kitchen will be featured in an upcoming edition of BHG Real-Life Kitchens and Baths. Here’s the play by play of her photo shoot…and she wasn’t even there to experience it! Check out the post!
Our friend Sheri from The Simasek-Kibler Project asked the question, “Can I still get into heaven if I can’t make biscuits?” and you are just going to have to go over and read her post to find out
how she discovered the answer!
