Be Inspired #167

First of all I want to thank all of you that came by last week and linked up with the party. Thanksgiving week is such a hectic time, so thanks so much for coming to the party! I enjoyed seeing what you all have been up to, and I know that we had lots of visitors over the weekend. Whenever I'm feeling a little low on inspiration, all I have to do is click thru the links of this party, you guys are so creative! Here are a few links from last week:

Rita from Mammabellarte has been busy painting, glittering, and sewing
 as co host for her wonderful California event, The Vintage Marketplace.
 I thought you'd enjoy seeing a few of her Christmas Creations.
Susan from Must Love Junk has this amazing chippy door on her mantel.
It's reversible, creating a wonderful backdrop for her Natural Christmas Mantel 




Love this adorable Hoopy Holiday Snowman
from Nici at Posed Perfection




The perfect classic is Christmas Red and White in the Kitchen
from Carolyn at Aiken House and Gardens.
I'm in love with that metal picnic hamper!







Each year I see these Vintage Jewelry Christmas Trees  and I want to make one.
This one from Betsy at Coastal Colors
is framed beautifully in a vintage gold frame.
Perfect for a little Christmas Bling!



Elizabeth from Blue Clear Sky wanted something different this year and she chose  to sew up some gorgeous White Denim bags for her armoire doors. You need to hear where she found the fabric, great upcycle!




shared the recipe for Nutella Pumpkin Pie.
Pumpkin and Nutty Chocolate?
yes, please.

thanks so much, gals!
