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 1st One From the Desert


Happy Friday eve and welcome to my weekly party from it's new location. Well the virtual location remains the same but you understand :) 

Let's start with some features from last week's party. 


Once we find a place, I think I will have to make this Heat Transfer Vinyl Pillow from Hazel and Gold Designs


Spring is the perfect time for a new wreath. This first one is from Domestic Deadline is perfect in its simplicity of using the same silk flower throughout. 


Vintage Paint and More has not only another pretty Spring wreath, but a whole mantle idea that's so pretty in blue and yellow. 


While I'm not a Vegan, I have enjoyed some wonderful Vegan treats and this gorgeous Mounds Cake from Vegan Dollhouse looks AMAZING and combines two of my absolute favorites, chocolate and coconut. 

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

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday Eve all!!! The countdown has truly begun with 18 days left until Christmas, and Hanukkah is next week! Yikes. But we're makers right? We are the people who can whip stuff up in no time and make it look like it took all year. We're the ones who pinned stuff a year ago that we planned to have done in July and..... Just me? I think not! 

Let's see some great ideas from last week's party. 



How about this buffalo plaid Farmhouse style wreath from Vintage Paint and More? CUTE and easily doable. I love how the plaid pops against the white pom poms. 


I really love this idea. If you love to bake and know someone who either doesn't or doesn't have time, how about putting together a cookie decorating gift box for them like this one from Just Measuring Up



Even though the ladies from Lolly Jane call these  "Ugly Sweater" trees, I think they're adorable. Just shows they can't make ugly things if they try!


Finally, how can you go wrong with 12 Days of Treats from a blog called Mrs. Kringle's Kitchen. I mean c'mon! 

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

BFF Open House Link Party

Happy Friday Eve all and welcome to another party. Hope you've all had a great week. 

I'm pleased to announce the winner of my recent Paperless Post giveaway ( winner was randomly selected via Rafflecopter) is Kim who has been notified via email. Thanks to everyone who participated.

OK who else has never heard of an "Ears and Beers" party (as the name implies, it involves corn and beer)? I love hosting this party because I learn new things all the time. Jenny from Jenny Louise Marie shared how she hosted one of these and you really need to check it out to see all the amazing things she did and incporated popcorn, candy corn, corn tortilla chips, Mexican street corn, candy corn jello shots and of course, beer! 

She sent her guests home with these corn themed favors that could easily work for Thanksgiving.

My son is coming home for Thanksgiving so I must have beer on my mind since he is a craft beer aficionado. I know not everyone drinks beer so you could easily do this w/ your beverage of choice , but Milena and Chris from Craftbeering came up with a fun way to count down until Christmas especially since there are many seasonal brews that are only out a certain times of the year. 



You could even have a different flavor for each day! 

Tis the season to be wreathy and Cathy from Vintage Paint and More has got you covered. 


Finally, if you are looking for pie alternatives for Thanksgiving or for any time, check out this gorgeous Apple Galette from Mrs. Kringles Kitchen


OK now on to this week's party!

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Friday and official start of Fall Eve all!  I think we can all agree "Mother Nature, the world has had enough of you for a while". 

Thinking of the people in Mexico, Puerto Rico, the Caribbean who all got hit this week, along w/ FL , Houston and everyone recovering from recent weeks.

Let's take our minds off things with some pretties OK? 


I love tiered things. Height always seems to bring depth. This DIY Modern Farmhouse Tiered Tray  from Diane at An Extraordinary Day is so perfect! 


If this mantel doesn't scream Fall, complete with the perfect F A L L letters, I don't know what does. See it all at Vintage Paint and More


Would you guess that these birch candles are faux? Check out Chas' Crazy Creations to see how! 

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

BFF Open House Link Party


Happy Mid September Friday Eve all! Hoping that those who've been impacted by Harvey and Irma are recovering. Fall is almost officially here and there were lots of great ideas shared last week so let's take a look. 


I was just reading in the paper today that here in the PNW we have a great crop of Fall pears so this recipe from 3Winks Design is well timed and looks amazing! 


Nothing says Fall like Pumpkins and these fabric ones from Vintage Paint and More are perfect for any room. 


Halloween will be here before we know it and this Easy Tulle Wreath from Foxy's Domestic Side is just the thing to get you in the haunted mood! 


The first time my parents took me to a "grown up" restaurant as a kid, I fell in lifelong love with chocolate mousse. This recipe from Marilyn's Treats looks like just the way to end a special meal. Or an ordinary meal. Or in place of a meal. 

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

BFF Open House Link Party


Woot. Happy Friday Eve. I'm ready for the weekend, how about you? Let's face it, I'm never NOT ready for the weekend!

Here are some ideas ( maybe even weekend projects? ) from last week's party. 


See the curtains in the background? Want to know what they're made from? Only the most versatile thing ever...fabric dropcloths from the HW store! Check out how Lindsey from Repurpose and Upcycle freshened up her living room with these. 


Who doesn't love a great thrift store transformation? This vintage sign from Vintage Paint and More is  one .  You have to check out  the before and Cathy did such a beautiful job on the after. 


This gorgeous DIY outdoor solar light looks like it came from a high end home store. Victoria from Dazzle While Frazzled ( whose blog name I love!) has a great tutorial. 


Anyone else want some of these like I do? They're called Martha Washington Candies and they are a combination of coconut, pecans, and other yummy ingredients. Thank you Marilyn from Marilyn's Treats for sharing! 

Now let's see what you've been up to this week. Party On!
