Be Inspired #168

Hi there,
 all you wonderfully talented Bloggy Buds
and Welcome to Be Inspired!

OK, my head is exploding from all the great Christmas ideas and inspiration! You all never fail to come up with the most amazing decor, projects, and displays for the Holidays. I could feature each one of you!  (Be watching for Friday Night, as I share a few more features, I just couldn't get everyone in this post.) So here are just a few...I seem to be fixated on wreaths today. Take a peek at the fun from last week!


Meg from Oliver and Rust shared her fabulous
Christmas House Tour where she uses her
  signature "Green" as an accent throughout her spaces.



and Meg also created this wonderful
Ornament Wreath using a variety of ornaments.
I've wanted to try one of these for the longest time,
now I think I could tackle it!



Bella's Rose Cottage, what can I say?
A confection of pinks, whites, and the most wonderful
shade of dusty lavender.



Another variation from Bella on the Ornament wreath
in pinks and cream, on this wonderful vintage window and Christmas Mantel




Shanna from Restoration Redoux
gave us her version in silver,
with the good advice of shopping for ornaments at Dollar Tree.




OK, we all know I'm nuts for plaid at Christmas
so I love the Cocoa Station from Pam at House of Hawthornes



Another obsession is all things Boxwood,
so check out the easy Square Boxwood Wreath Tutorial
Leslie from Paper Daisy Designs




The Book Spine Christmas Tree
from Julia at Vintage With Laces
is evidence that this girl knows how to use anything vintage
and turn it into a work of art!




Another beautiful wreath in white perfection is the 
Tissue Paper Wreath from Jacqueline at Cabin and Cottage.




 Sherry from the Charm of Home
shared her Sugar and Spice Buffet with a Jam Cake recipe.






And if you're needing a dose of Elf on the Shelf,
then check out Penny's wonderful Pink Kitchen playground.

THANK YOU, Gals!!


And have you entered the Give Away yet?
super easy and you get to choose your own pillow as the winner!
The Give Away closes Friday Night, so
