Sep 10 Friday Favourites

Where did this week go? Perhaps being on countdown for a trip is making things go quicker. I still managed to visit some creative link up blog parties this week and these a just a few of my favourites.

Fab pillows found at Sassy Sanctuary.

These super cute crocheted apples would be so fun for eraser and pencil sharpener storage and can be found at Roots and Wings.

This wonderful shabby vintage rococo style clock makeover - can I get a Yumm!! This would go perfect with my little room makeover project. You can see from my inspiration photo why it totally gets my favourite vote for this week. You can find this clock and more wonderful projects at The Speckled Dog. Kristi paid $2 for it...why can't I find deals like that. Plus she used paint she already had. What a fabulous thrifty find too.

That's it for this week. My "to do" list is long and my "too late" list is getting longer with all the things to be done before I go away. :) I am on the road traveling for the better part of the next two months so taking a break from Friday Favourites for a while.

September 3rd Friday Favourites

Just some of my favourite creative links this week.

Found at Antique Chase some fabulous corbells used as candle sconces.

Cute madeover numbered pots at Reloved Rubbish

Adore this image (as well as a bunch of others) from Elly at My Everyday Things via House in the Roses. The old books, photo and linens so artfully arranged and all set of by that fab white.

In fact it is one of many over there that are just wonderful. Please go and see the rest of Elly's gorgeous cottage.

Great use of an antique crate over at Nancy's Daily Dish 

Can't wait to see the rest of this kitchen transformation over at Buckets of Burlap.

A wonderful DIY project in my favourite shabby style at Biljana Shabby.

This looks so like my shelf that I made over this week. Found at Reloved Rubbish also.

Check out this upmarket lamp makeover at 33 Shades of Green

Oops! Looks like I got long posted again, and I hadn't even listed them all.

So I'll leave you with one last favourite.

This one is Kathleen over at Faded Charm and is just one showing her pretty, shabby, and vintage space at Camas Vintage Street Fair.

Just delicious!

Have a great week and don't forget to check back for more linky party's!

A Tuesday Linky

Here is another Tuesday Link Party for you to take part in.

This is over at House of Grace and one I really like called Twice Owned.


Reusing, re-purposing, making over and up-cycling are all wonderful ways to help keep the planet in a little better shape than it seems to be headed. Why buy new when you can make something over and reuse it? What a fabulous way to celebrate your twice owned possessions with a blog party.

You can find this weeks Twice Owned Link Party here.

Back to School Ideas

Back to school is usually an exciting time for most family's. It can be daunting and overwhelming as well. Up north of the equator most schools are back or headed back around now.

Here are some great craft ideas I have come across to help the transition go more smoothly. Idea's for the children and the teachers for back to school week in the northern hemisphere.

3 Fun back to School Traditions @ How does She?

What child could resist milk and cookies after school? You could even make one for each day of the first week to ease those settling in nerves.

@ Organise Your Stuff Now.

Why not makeover some buckets for homework supplies? Get them off to a good organised start.

@ Cute as a Fox an new take on an old favourite for a teachers gift.

@ Nice Girl Notes you can make decor matching magnetic alphabets for your younger learners.

At The Hybrid Chick is this neat and fun back to school door hanger idea.

And finally over at Love Stitched is one for the all us Mum's and Dad's who have to do the laundry after our precious ones come home from school with pocketfuls of stuff.
