Be Inspired #170

Hi Everyone,
 and Welcome to Be Inspired!

Do you have any energy left to get up and party a little after yesterday? We had a great time at my sister's house for a fun dinner and get together but I haven't been to bed before 1:00 am all week. So this week I'm sharing a few photos from the Dining Room and Entry that I hadn't had a chance to post. I grabbed a few posts for features from last week's links, so I hope you'll drop by for a visit if you haven't seen them yet.

On the Buffet

and in the Entry

And from last week's party:

 Many of you will remember Alice from a few years ago, she's back)

shared her beautiful Home Tour

Thanks Gals! 

Next week we'll do things a little different with linking up some of your favorite posts, projects, and top visited posts from this last year, or feel free to share what you've been up to this week. I know lot's of us will be cleaning up, so take this time to link up a previous post or two from 2013.
