BFF Open House Link Party

 

Happy Friday and October Eve! You know what that means. It's full speed ahead to Halloween! I finally spent some real time in my craft room to kick off my 2021 Halloween decorating which you can see here. Crackled and Jeweled Floral Sugar Skull on Wood

Lots of fun ideas from last week's party so let's take a look at a few!


Brilliant idea from Penny at Penny's Vintage Home. Transform an artificial Christmas Limb into a spectacular Fall Tree! 


Who wouldn't want to sit at this "Bootiful" Halloween table? Gorgeous tablescape from Whispers of the Heart!



Check out this creative Upcycled Percolator Pumpkin transformation from Love My Cottage. I suspect some parents or grandparents may have one of these percolators stashed in a garage. I can easily see a Scarecrow or Tin Man made from one! 


Finally, this Poison Apple display is such a perfect Halloween and Snow White inspired idea from Studio 27 by Jennifer Adams

Thank you to everyone who linked up and can't wait to see what you've all been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve and Mid-September all. I still have to look at the calendar to be reminded that it's Fall here in the desert because it's 97 degrees as I write this and I'm dreaming of when I can wear boots and sweaters. 

Got the post-surgical all clear to resume whatever I feel up to including driving so I ventured out solo the other day for the first time in five weeks and of course where did I go? Dollar Tree! I was itching to see what cute Halloween stuff they had to play with and wasn't disappointed. I'm on the hunt for a Halloween tree to decorate this year and got some very cool ornaments to use when I find the right one. I'm sure by the next time I go they'll be knee deep in Christmas!

Before we get that far ahead though, let's take a look at some of the great ideas from last week's party! 


Can you ever have too many pumpkins on display this time of year? Especially Glitter Pumpkins like these from A Life of Balance? Now's the time to pick up those faux pumpkins before they're gone. 


I've seen some fashion ads featuring painted jeans and they can of course get pricey. Being DIYers though, of course our first thought is "How can I do that?" and Love My Little Cottage has got us covered with a tutorial. How cute are these? 


Look at this fabulous Coffee Table from A Life Unfolding made from...wait for it...a vintage CHICKEN CRATE! I love it. And on wheels!

 


Finally, Cindy's Online Recipe Box is back with another spectacular Fall cookie idea. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Rake Cookies that look 3D!

Now let's see what everyone's been up to this week and thanks to everyone who linked up!

BFF Open House

 


Happy Friday Eve! Ten days until Love Day and you all are definitely getting ready so I'm adding a couple of extra features this week! The reason I call it "Love Day" is because Valentine's always suggests couples to me and I think it's important to celebrate those we love, whether they're a partner, spouse, kiddos, parents, friends, and / or especially oneself! It's been a rough year so showing love is so important! OK let's see what you've been up to!




Anita, from Unique Creations by Anita continues to nail it with her Steampunk creations, this time a Steampunk Heart! 

Niky from The House on Silverado is back with a fabulous Burlap Ribbon Wreath! 


Priyam from Simple Joys shared this lovely Origami Heart Treat Holders. These could also be everything from bowl fillers to a wreath or banner or just as they are!


Kristie from Love My Little Cottage shared this incredible Abstract Heart Painting. I love the colors and how she blended everything. 



Wheatless Foodie shared these pretty Gluten Free Brownies With Buttercream Icing that whether you're gluten free or not look amazing! 


Finally, The Kitchen Is My Playground shared these Chocolate Valentine Kiss Cookies that are just the perfect bite size morsels of love! 

Thanks as always to EVERYONE who linked up! Now let's see what everyone's been up to this week!

Happy Friday Eve all! We made it through another week and I finally feel like my 2021 creative juices have started flowing. Check out my first 2021 project here. Thank you for your kind comments last week about my bestie who is doing a bit better day by day. We're not out of the woods yet so please continue to Mask Up and Wash Up! Let's take a look at some of the great ideas from last week!



If you are still in need of a 2021 calendar, then Common Sparrows has you covered with a Printable Shadowbox Calendar !




String Art is making a comeback and if you've never done it, it's easy, fun, and possibilities are endless. Love My Little Cottage has a great step by step tutorial for this String Art Heart and you're only limited by your imagination in what you want to make. So many shapes lend themselves to it. 


With Valentine's Day approaching, COVID still raging and all of us continuing to stay close to home, I thought this post from 3 Winks Design was perfect! And it includes some ideas for Newlyweds and "Oldlyweds" (a new term I'll be adopting) like me! 




For a special Valentine's breakfast or anytime, these Cheddar Swirl Bacon Biscuits from Morsels of Life would be a fabulous addition. Cheese and bacon wrapped in a yummy biscuit? Oh yes please! 

Thank you to everyone who linked up and let's take a look at what you've been up to this week!

BFF Open House


Happy Friday Eve ( thank goodness for calendars because otherwise I'm not sure I'd know which day it was!). Hope you've all had a peaceful, healthy, and creative week! I'm excited to start working on some Thanksgiving inspired projects I can't wait to share. My most recent Halloween themed creation is here: Skull Earrings and Bracelet

If we're not already following each other on Instagram, I'd love to make sure I'm following you all. 

Let's take a look at some of the inspiring ideas from last week's party! 


Just because I've been on the hunt for them, I haven't found any more of those foam Dollar Tree pumpkins but Jasmine from Eccentricities by JVG did and I absolutely LOVE what she did with them! Perfect to leave up now through Thanksgiving. 


This colorful, poured, and hand lettered Hey Boo sign from Kristie at Love My Little Cottage is all kinds of perfect! 



Mary Jo from Masterpieces of My Life shared how she updates this awesome birdcage seasonally. I love pieces that can change from season to season. 


Finally, tis the season for all things pumpkin and while I confess to not being a fan, as my blog name tells you, I am a fan of chocolate. So these Bakery Style Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies from 3 Winks Design just may convert me because they look amazing!

Thanks to everyone who linked up!

Let's see what everyone's been up to this week.
