Life Lately + Sweet Inspiration Link Party #81

Welcome back to another Sweet Inspiration Link Party, friends!

Sweet Inspiration Link Party #67 | craft, decor, DIY, recipes

Life Lately

I can’t believe that it was only a few short weeks ago that the weather was this sunny and beautiful.

Pumpkin Picking - Sweet Inspiration Link PartyYep, that’s me and my husband picking pumpkins for our exterior fall decor. We had so much fun! Prior to that day, my experience picking pumpkins involved sticking my head inside a gigantic wooden crate outside our local grocery store. Convenient, yes. But nowhere near as fun as hand-picking your own in a  pumpkin patch 🙂

But with the cooler temperatures and all the rain we’ve been experiencing of late, our pumpkin picking days feel like a distant memory.

As is so often quoted in the HBO series, the Game of Thrones:   Winter Is Coming.

Sigh. Oh well. What can you do?

For me, this weekend’s Sweet Inspiration Link Party comes as a welcome distraction. I hope you agree 🙂

Our Favourites From Last Week’s Party:

My Pick – A Vintage Desk Makeover for a Little Princess

Lindsey from Repurpose and Upcycle shows us how to turn an old, beat-up desk from Craigslist into this gorgeous, vintage beauty!

Mary’s Pick – Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Bread


Mary says:  This bread from Merissa of Little House Living has got everything, and is more like a dessert. My daughter leaned over my shoulder as I was reading the post and said she is going to make it pronto. It’s nice having a baker in the house!

Christina’s Pick – Fall Home Decor Tour 2017

Christina says:  Fall can be beautiful with color! Kathryn from the Dedicated House shows us the way 

Michelle’s Pick – Worn Denim Jeans Furniture

Michelle says:  My little boho heart skipped a few beats when I saw how Michele from Coastal Bohemian transformed a curbside find into this emerald and denim infused masterpiece. Isn’t it beautiful?

Florence’s Pick – 2017 Costume Reveal The 1920’s

Florence says:  We go back to the styles of the 1920’s with Laura and her husband at Decor to Adore. Would you believe she made the darling outfit she is modeling from a $6 tablecloth she bought at an estate sale? Now that’s MY kind of repurposing!
