Fun Stuff from the Blogs and A Feature!

From time to time, I like to show you some of the neat things that I am seeing out on the blogs.  I follow quite a few blogs and also enter my projects in weekly linky parties.  I visit around the linky parties and sometimes I see projects done by other bloggers that really catch my eye.  Some of those projects rock my world.  Some just make me smile.  Here are my favorites from the past week. (All the images have quick links that will take you to the projects) 

Michele over at The Scrape Shoppe, made this wreath out of burlap and jeans.  It is  is super cute and looks relatively easy to do.  If you are looking for a little pick me up for your front door for the upcoming 4TH of July, click on the highlighted named above to get a complete and well documented tutorial.   For some reason the link on the image isn't working.

I see my fair share of vintage spoon projects, but this one caught my eye.  It is just a cut above all the others.  Click on the image to see more.

Now this one made my "Crazy and Adorable" list.  First off.....just finding something like this is pretty darn amazing.  So cute.

I see thousands of chair redo projects every week.  Blogland is full of chairs using Annie Sloans' Chalk Paint.  I have grown somewhat weary of the same shades of paint on every chair.  So, imagine my excitement when I found this colorful, creative chair over at Wise Designs.

Another exciting project is this desk redo by a relatively new blogger, I Know The Plans I Have For You.  (I'm new, so we are talking newer.)  Super coolio.

I Know the Plans I Have For You

Okay. So.  I always gotta show you something outrageous.  So here we have the most outrageous cupcakes I think I have ever seen.  If you are planning a summer barbecue, you gotta get a load of these!!  Adorable and unexpected. Neato.

I also wanted to let you guys know that Jackie over at Simple Home Life featured my Master Bedroom 4 Poster Bed project this past week! Yeah!  If you are wanting to see the feature, click on the button to the left to take a peek.  Thanks Jackie!

Update on the Water Damage Disaster:  Yesterday, one of the blower machines that the emergency company had running in my studio blew out the electricity in that part of the house.  They came right out to assess it last night but couldn't address it completely until today.  I just stayed out of that area and pretended that it really wasn't happening!!  Sometime, ya just gotta ignore the problem in order to maintain your sanity!!! Luckily it didn't take out the electric to the air conditioning!  As I write this post, an electrician is here fixing it.
Cords wrapped up and ready to leave!

We did make a few steps forward.  They removed most of the machines this morning because the meters were telling them that most of the dampness was gone!  Now we just wait for the adjuster to come out, so that we can start to put the house back together.

Have a great Sunday.... Hope you enjoyed these projects I shared with you.  I'm getting out of here for the day.  Need a break.
