Eye Candy and Blog Love

Hey everyone!


I hope you're getting some of this beautiful weather this week. It's hanging around in the 60's in NC so Spring is on the way! Wahoooo! I think I can say with fair certainty that we're all ready for some warmer weather.
John and I are busy busy this week doing something we've never done before. I can't reveal what it is yet (I know, I know, I'm such a tease) but I can't wait to tell you all about it soon.


In the meantime, I'm going to leave you with some eye candy from posts around bloggy-land that have caught my eye. Enjoy! *click on the links to view the full post*

See what Melissa over at  320 Sycamore did with $5 and a little genious-ness. It's amazing what a little digging around at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Goodwill, or yard sales can can bring to you.  

 Don't you just love it?!? I've been thinking about this project all week. I'd love to find a light with great lines and turn it into something that would normally cost a small fortune.


Next, is this project from Brittany over at Pretty Handy Girl. She made this little reading nook/ hang out for her little one and I'm just speechless. I'm completely in love. Did I mention it was once a closet? Simply awesome!



How about this for an amazing house project? Joan at For the Love of A House is transforming a beautiful farmhouse in New Hampshire. She moved there with her husband from Texas and has the most amazing transformations. Her kitchen simply blows me away.


And last (but not least) Centsational Girl, Kate. She is the queen of furniture revamps, crafting and design. Her amazing trellis-stenciled wall is just impressive. I would love to do a feature wall just like this one day. You can learn all about how she did it by clicking the link.


I have such a privelege of watching these (and so many other) women craft, re-create and inspire. Blogging is such an amazing part of my life, and I don't ever want to stop. I've made wonderful friends and learned so much from each one of the blogs I read daily. I hope by sharing these projects, you'll too, see how much talent there is out there to inspire you.

Have a wonderful week everyone. I'll leave you to peruse the links above.
Oh, and Happy Valentines Day!
