Be Inspired #175

Hey Everyone, and Welcome to Be Inspired!

Are you all still in the deep freeze? 
I guess there's no use in complaining...
I'm trying to remember what I love about winter,
 but right now that concept is escaping me.
One good thing to do is to link up all your ideas and inspiration from last week,
and come hang out over here for awhile.

Honestly, there have been so many great links.
You all are awe.some!
Here are just a few from last week.

Kim from Tidbits and Twine shared her Guest Room Makeover, 
and I'm totally crushing on this wonderful black cabinet!

I was amazed with this Craft Room Reveal and
from Jeannine at the Concrete Cottage
talk about "Creative"...

Amber from Junkaholics Unanimous 
shared her "Winter in the Cottage" Decor, this chair.

Anne from Fiona and Twig  photographed a friend's wonderful Cottage.

This over the top gilt French Coat of Arms Sign from Olive Out really rocks!

We've been struggling with coming up with flat screen TV storage.
 So check out the fabulous Triple Printer's Drawer TV Console
from Korrie at Red Hen Home.

And I do have to admit, this is one way to have some fun in the snow.
I love this winter picnic in plaid from Jann at Mrs. Olson's.

thanks gals!

    just click on the photos at the top of this post.
