Weekly Wow's

April 27, 2013

Happy Saturday. I hope it was a great week for all of you and that you have something special planned for your weekend. Perhaps it's catching up on some sleep, working in the yard, visiting with friends or family or just doing nothing. Maybe it's working on a project. If you are looking for something new to do this weekend, here's a few ideas to get you going.

Nancy at Artsy Chicks Rule hit a home run with this beautiful sideboard transformation.  I have yet to add graphics like this to any of my projects, have you?  If I do, I only hope it can turn out this pretty.
Keeping with the French theme, Debbie from Confessions of a plate addict created this amazing linen and burlap vintage Eiffel tower inspired pillow. And look at how she wrapped her books!  Have you ever been to France?
 Seeing a funnel cake always makes me think of the fair. You too?
I can remember eating these delicious little cakes and always wanting more. Now.... I can't help but think of the calorie content that I was ingesting.
If calories aren't your worry, then you will like twigg studios easy recipe to make home made funnel cakes at home.
Don't throw out those old perfume bottles just yet.
I love the idea of using old perfume bottles as vases for cut flowers. image credit
I sure do hope you enjoy the weekend, doing what you love and surrounding yourself with the people that you love. See you next week!
Grateful for~
A rainy Saturday to immerse myself in family love.
