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! Here's to another weekend on the horizon. Weekends are the best aren't they? When someone says "How was your weekend"? my answer is usually : "It was the WEEKEND so by definition, awesome". 

Fall is definitely in the air ( even though temps here are still 100+) so let's take a look at some ideas from last week's party. 


Vignettes and tablescapes do so much to change the mood of a room. I love this gorgeous Fall display from Faeries and Fauna which includes instructions for how to layer your pieces for the best look. 


If you want to bring a little Fall color into your home, love this idea from The Red Painted Cottage ( and I'm in super love with that galvanized basket).



Is it bad when you see an idea and immediately think "Now I have a reason to buy what I just saw at Michaels last weekend"? Does this happen to anyone else? Fess up! My Michaels has a whole collection of labware for Halloween and these Mocktails from From Playdates to Parties would be just the thing to fill the beakers I thought about getting but wasn't sure why and now have a reason to get...I digress.  You could make Appletinis if you want to change this to an adult beverage. 


Finally, I love the vintagey goodnesss of this Reverse Canvas sign from Vintage Paint and More, especially the ombre coloring of the letters. 

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

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 ! 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) .

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve and welcome to another link up. As always, thanks for choosing to share your creativity here! Here are some great ideas from last week's party. 



I love a good no sew project and especially when it comes to pillows. Changing throw pillows can change the whole feel of a room. These from Repurpose and Upcycle are perfect! 


Floating frames are so ethereal but can get pricey. Faeries and Fauna shared how to make your own using a repurposed frame. 


With hand lettering , coloring and doodling being so popular,  buying sketchbooks to fill can add up. Hazel and Gold Designs shows how you can make your own. Great to keep or give as gifts! 


Finally, with yesterday being "National Iced Coffee Day" this Greek Frappe from All That's Jas would have been the perfect treat. Given how fueled I am by coffee, this is definitely on my to make list!

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

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all ! Welcome to another party here at The Answer Is Chocolate. Glad to see Spring is finally starting to arrive in parts of the country it seemed like it was skipping this year. 

Here are some fine ideas shared at last week's party. 


Let's start with this simple but gorgeous wreath from Suzer Space made from found twigs in the yard coupled with paper flowers and a butterfly! Almost makes doing yard work fun right? 


Bring the outdoors inside (real or faux) with ideas from Penny's Treasures. I love how she combined succulents with roses for this centerpiece and she has a beautiful array of other ideas. 


Also loving these French Lavender Pots from Follow The Yellow Brick Home. They're beautiful and fit my favorite crafting criteria : fast and inexpensive! 


Finally, Faeries and Fauna shared 10 Terra Cotta Pot Painting tutorials. I love terra cotta pots because they are so versatile and inexpensive.  

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