Be Inspired #174

I felt totally out of the loop being away just one week! I missed seeing all your great ideas and decor from last week, and I'm in real need of some fresh inspiration! We're settling in to the lease house but have a long weekend of packing at the other house ahead of us. blah. But I DO need to find my Valentine goodies so I'll keep on a happy face. It's been so cold, all I want to do is stay home with a fuzzy blanket wrapped around me. OK, no whining...Here are some of the great links from the party two weeks ago.

Melissa from Shabby Love has a wonderful Home Tour, 
that you won't want to miss.

The Making of an Antique Cupboard
Angie from Knick of Time
