BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve and Happy Spring All! Hope you've all had a great week.  A little calmer on this end so thanks for understanding no features last week. 



Starting off with these sweet Watercolor Carrots from Mamas Brush. This is more as a reminder than a project tutorial but a reminder of what? A reminder that our creativity doesn't have to be perfect ( whatever that really means) in order for us to be happy with it or for it to be considered art. There's a great reminder in the post: 

Are they perfect? No. But they are fun. And that’s my only requirement for being happy with something I’ve created. 🙂
(As an aside: I never pursued my love of drawing when I was younger because I always though everything had to be perfect… what a game changer this new way of thinking is!)

I think this is a reminder we can all use. I know I can!


I  know what you're thinking: "That bunny's going to melt out there in the grass". HA HA Lisa, from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S fooled us. It's a Faux Chocolate Bunny she's painted to look like a real one.

Speaking of chocolate ( hello, you know where you are lol ) these Mint Oreo Cookie Balls would be a nice addition to a special Easter Basket or dessert table. From Butter With A Side of Bread:



Now, let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

BFF Open House Link Party Back Up And Running!


YAY! Happy Friday Eve all. I'm back up and running on my laptop with a new SSD hard drive and all my fonts and data files in tact. Whew! Thanks for  hanging in there. 

Can I scare you? We're already almost done w/ January and Friday 1/25 marks exactly eleven months until Christmas. Can you believe it? I have vowed that I'm starting much earlier on handmade gifts this year because time flies. 

OK here are some features from last week's party. Thanks for hanging in and hanging with me! 



I love wood slices and have mostly seen them used as trays or plaques, but totally love this idea from Stephanis at  Abbotts At Home to use one as a hanging rack! 



I have always had a thing for birch trees. There is just something about them that is so appealing to me so I couldn't stop staring at these Hand Painted Birch Tree Wine Glasses from Chas's Crazy Creations. You could easily do on a plate, platter, vase. So Pretty! 



Also in love with this chair makeover from Virginia at Artsy VaVa

Finally, as we're getting ready for Valentine's Day, check out this amazing cheesecake from Butter With a Side of Bread:


Wouldn't that be a special treat for your special Valentine?

OK let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve once again. Best day of the week! Not only because tomorrow's Friday but because I get to see all the wonderful creativity you share each week. 

Let's see some ideas from last week's party!


Leanna from Faeries and Fauna is back with another wonderful project. This one modeled on a clam basket. Large baskets are hard to find and when you do they can get pricey so I love that you can make this and make it any size you choose!


Who doesn't have an empty tissue box? Save your next one to make this Upcycled Halloween Candy Container from Marie at DIY Adulation.


I have been in love with Velvet Pumpkins since I first saw them but Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S has now added Velvet Acorns which take things to another level! She did these in pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.



I know this is the time of year that Pumpkin lovers rejoice, so all of you who are need to check out these gorgeous Pumpkin Spice Cake Balls from Butter With A Side of Bread


Now let's see what you've all been up  to this week. Thank you for visiting!

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all! Hope everyone's had a good week. It kind of flew by for me but in a good way. Getting soooo close to being all settled in our new place! Will be great to have all of my creative stuff surrounding me again. Let's see some ideas from last week's party. 


Let's start with this French Farmhouse Style Vintage Footstool from Follow The Yellow Brick Home. I need to make something like this for my new office. Propping your feet up takes pressure off your back and I sit too much all day and have struggled w/ back problems. This will fit right in with my new office! 



Who can ever get enough pillows? Not me! So this one from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S definitely caught my eye. It's made from  cloth napkins! 


Faeries and Fauna shared this lovely vignette featuring DIY Coffee Signs. Both the style and the fact that it involves anything coffee caught my eye!! Love this tiered stand. 


Finally, these Reeses Pretzel Bars from Butter With a Side of Bread look delicious! With Fall right around the corner, they would make a wonderful Fall treat don't you think?

Now, let's see what you've all been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve all! It's been HOT here even for the desert this week. 117 degrees. I now live on the Sun lol. Hope you've all had cooler weeks, filled with cool creative projects. See what I did there? Let's take a look at some ideas from last week's party! 


I'm in love with barn style hanging doors and this one from Repurpose and Upcycle is no exception. 


If you're lucky enough to have (or have access to) a Lake House, then Follow The Yellow Brick Home has some wonderful ideas for Vintage Cottage Summer decor and entertaining. Even if you don't, you can bring a little of the lake to you! 


A little paint and a paint pen are all you need to transform an old metal lamp into a fun addition to any room. In this case, Le Cultivateur transformed this one for her son's sports themed room! 



Finally, one of the hallmark signs of Summertime for me is strawberries. I've never made my own jam but this easy recipe from Butter With A Side Of Bread looks very doable and delicious! 


Now let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all. Hope you all have had a great week and looking forward to a festive Father's Day weekend! As always while I'm on limited craft time, I enjoy looking at your creations each week so here are a few ideas from last week's party! 



Really loving this Milking Stool Makeover from The Painted Hinge ! Michelle is even sharing the printable she used for the image transfer. 



I also really love this Re-Purposed Wood Garden Caddy that was shared by Lisa at Fresh Vintage By Lisa S . She got the stenciling PERFECT!



I love a good knockoff and this Tobacco Basket from Our Hopeful Home is a great version of one inspired by Ballard Designs. 


Finally, with Fourth of July quickly approaching I love the festive simplicity of these Red White and Blue Cookies from Butter With a Side of Bread. Two colors of chocolate melts and the gold stars really take these store bought cookies to a new level! 

OK let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

BFF Open House Link Party

Happy Friday Eve all ! Why can't the weekend be 5 days and the week 2? More wondeful ideas from last week's party and you all continue to keep me inspired while I'm not as able to make things right now. Let's see a few! 


My old house in WA had lots of lavender bushes. I wish I'd thought to make anything as lovely as these Scrap Wood Drying Racks like these from Faeries and Fauna


Totally in love with these Rustic Farmhouse Laundry Room Ideas from Follow The Yellow Brick Home.  Definitely want to do something like this in my next home. 


With Summer fast approaching, nothing is more perfect than popsicles. Domestic Deadline has got every flavor combination covered with 14 Homemade Popsicle Recipes


Finally, how delicious does this Cheesecake with Ganache and Berries look?! From Butter With a Side of Bread ( which is totally how you should eat bread lol) .
