TGIAF or Thank Goodness It's Almost Friday! Month end is always chaotic work-wise and this week has been NO exception. This party gives me something to look forward to during those weeks. Let's see some ideas from last week's party, and a big chocolate-y WELCOME to some new party guests.
To regulars and newcomers alike, thank you for making this one of your party stops!
There's something about maps that add to any decor. Whether you have vintage maps, photocopied maps, or map themed scrapbook paper these decoupaged map candles from The Navage Patch are so cool. How fun would it be to do these w/ maps from a special trip? Best part is they're LED candles so you'll never burn your maps.
Do you doodle or Zentangle? Who says it's only for paper. Love this doodled terra cotta pot from Shine Crafts. Fun to do yourself or would make a fun craft to do with your kids.
Boho style jewelry is so popular right now and this necklace from Woods of Bell Trees is no exception ( I also really really want her mannequin!). Tres chic.
And for this week's chocolate feature? Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies via Lollyjane from My Name Is Snickerdoodle. Let's just say it's a really good thing a plate of these are not in front of me right now.
Happy Friday Eve all! Hope everyone's had a wonderful week and Spring is acting like it in your neck of the woods. Here in the PNW we've had seveal days of every kind of weather except snow lately. I'm talking in the same day. Sunny then rainy then thunder then sunny. Lather rinse repeat. Let's see some ideas from last week's party!
LOVE this Spring tablescape from Much More Creative using pedestals she made. Even though Easter is over, this is perfect for the rest of Spring. I am a sucker for anything on a pedestal.
How fabulous would those pedestals look on top of this amazing farm table Artsy VaVa shared? More amazing? HER SON MADE IT. Yes I needed to put that in all caps. HE MADE IT! If he ever decides to stop being an Architect, he's got a calling right? Not surprising he's got such a great eye with a mom as creative as he has.
Any pet parents out there? I have an older dog who would love to snuggle in this Pampered Pooch Pocket from Kileen at Raven Would. Who wouldn't feel cozy in this and even if your sewing skills are limited ( like mine) it looks pretty straightforward.
I mailed Phd Boy all the Easter chocolate in his Easter "Boxsket". My basket actually got filled on Saturday when I got to go to one of my favorite places, Shipwreck Beads. It is a HUGE warehouse filled with anything and everything a beader or jewelry maker could want.
Not that I needed anything but that's beside the point right? I mean they were having a sale and since the warehouse is 90 minutes away from home and I don't get there frequently and ...... you get the point. They have a great website and their sale goes through tonight I think. Just sayin' :)
I picked up some Kiwi Sesame Jasper and Amazonite, miscellaneous findings and connectors, Vintage French and Venetian seed beeds, and some Lucite Petal Flowers. Not sure what I'm' making with any of it yet but not the point right?
