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 and welcome to another link party! Can you believe it's June tomorrow? I can't! Here are some features from last week's party. 


With Summer right around the corner garden parties and Summer entertaining are on the menu. Take things up a notch with this gorgeous Rose and Lavender Ice Bucket from Satsoma Designs. 


Also great for outside decorating is this Weathered Galvanized Bucket idea from Fluster Bluster. 


If you want to switch things up inside, how about changing up some light switch covers like this Steampunk idea from Surviving A Teacher's Salary


Finally, with Summer on the horizon, so are lots of Farmer's Markets, flea markets etc. and you can always use another bag. See what Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S did to transform these basic burlap bags from the the 99 Cent Store. 

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

BFF Open House Link Party

Happy Friday Eve and the start of what I hope is a lovely Mother's Day weekend. I won't be with my "baby" but I'm so excited that for the first year in many I get to celebrate with The Mumster. 

Let's take a look at some fun ideas from last week's party. 


I feel like you can never have too many memo boards. Whether for reminders or pictures, there's always something you want to display. Hazel and Gold Designs has this fun idea (and a video tutorial) for one using bent wire formed into a word. Think of all the possibilities! Names, favorite places etc. 


I tend toward matte finishes so I love the look of chalk paints. From Play Dates to Parties  has 4 great project ideas using chalk paint. 


I love that Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S figured out what to do with Vintage Glass Insulators that I've picked up and put down at flea markets a million times. Check out her adorable bottle and light garden!  


Finally, YUM check out this did I say YUM Oreo Parfait from A Sprinkle of Joy! Yes please. 

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

BFF Open House Link Party


Wow! It's the end of April already and hard to believe that a month ago we left Seattle on our journey to the desert. Hope everyone's had a good week and Spring is starting its thaw in parts of the country. Let's see some ideas from last week's party. 


With Mother's Day rapidly approaching, one of these gorgeous Jewelry Box makeovers from Fresh Vintage by LisaS would make a lovely upcycled gift for Mom. 


I've always had a thing for these directional signposts. There are so many milestones and life events you can commemorate from birthplaces, to places you've lived or traveled to , or maybe where loved ones may be scattered. This DIY idea from Homeward Found is gorgeous in its simplicity. 


This Chalkboard Sign would be a great addition to a cooking Mama's kitchen. From Vintage Paint and More


Or, if you know a Mama who doesn't cook but likes to eat, how about these Chocolate Filled Soft Pretzel Bites? I would not turn down a plate of these! See Raes Books and Recipes for the details. 

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

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve once again. I know that Spring has gotten lost on its way to several parts of the country so hopefully some of these Spring inspired features will tide you over until it gets there. 


Freshvintagebylisas has a fun way to combine kitchenware and gardening by re-purposing kitchen pieces as planters. Fun indoors or out! 


Similarly, Simple Nature Decor shared what she did with some fabulous old dairy containers by using them as planters. I love their vintage chippy rustiness! 



With Mother's Day fast approaching, From Playdates to Parties has a wonderful garden themed brunch idea that is perfect for indoor or outdoor entertaining. 

Finally, being a desert dweller now, I couldn't resist this adorable Crocheted Cactus Garden from Sew Crafty Crochet


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

BFF Open House Link Party


Hi all and welcome to another party here at The Answer Is Chocolate. I don't know about you all but having a creative space is a welcome distraction from the world. 

Let's see some of the ideas shared at last week's party. These just all worked together!


I love using book pages in projects including printing images on them. Lindasy from Simply September shared not only a great tutorial on how to print on book pages, but she also includes how to turn photos into sketches. 


I love the vintagey goodness of this simple but impactful idea from Dara at Not In Jersey combining burlap and old keys into a piece of wall art. Love those keys!!


Speaking of keys , Artsy Va Va is back with another wonderful paint technique for this Key or Necklace holder.  I love the layered look with the smaller wood panel in the center. 


Finally, I had to look twice ( or three times) at these Buffalo Plaid Jars because at first I thought they were fabric covered but it's paint! From Fresh Vintage By LisaS.

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