Fridays Unfolded Link Party {#153}

A little late to the party today.  Tech problems! But happy party day!!

Our spring is just ridiculous.  Every year I say this, and every year it's the same.  My brain is on overload and I'm all over the place.  Really design, decorating, DIY-ing, gardening, and crafting are the only things that keep me sane. So, I try to fit them in as much as I can.

This week I shared our springified mantel with you.  Love this look and it's one that will last me for a while I think!

Thanks for sharing your creativity with us every week!  Keep it up and pass it on!!  The more the merrier!!  Now onto my favs!

First up are these cute homemade picture frames from Mindi. I think anything is better homemade and these are great!

I love putting encouraging words in front of my kids in unique ways. The bathroom mirror is a great place and I love the way Katie uses vinyl letters for this!

Love this little corner of Samantha's playroom. The curtains are super fun, and how cute is that pillow!?

I love the tips that Karen shares for collecting items for your home on a budget.  This bed she created over time is dreamy!

And with warmer weather comes my craving for fresh foods! This roasted corn salsa from Cecelia's Good Stuff looks divine!

Spring Mantel

I know, I know, I just did a post about my mantel decor.  :) But, ya know that was for Easter and Easter's over so I needed something fresh that would last for a while.

When I decorate my mantel I really do challenge myself to use things I have.  I move things around.  Steal things from other places in the house and make things new.  

Everything else I pulled out of my stash or borrowed from elsewhere.  You can find my burlap wreath tutorial here.  

It just got some new bows.  :)  The trough my hubby made for me at Thanksgiving - I just filled it with a garland that actually used to hang on my front door. I made a small purchase of a couple of ivy plants to bring some fresh green and life to the mantel.

I love the simplicity of it and the pop of color.  

I finished up a few pillows for the family room this weekend, and I'm waiting on a fabric order to arrive to put the final touch on the room for a while at least.  I think I'm ready to move to the backyard.  I have been scheming ideas in my head for that space!  :)

As always thanks for stopping by!

Tween Boy Bedroom Reveal

I know it seems like it has taken me a long time to finish the kids' rooms!!  In reality the majority of the work has been done for a while, just tough to catch the room clean enough for good photos!! :)

Easter Mantel

Did you miss me last week?  Sorry for the absence.  Hubby and I were in sunny California where we met up with our oldest son.  The baseball team was there playing some California teams on their spring break.  So, three for one - I got to see my boy, I got to watch him play baseball, and I got to go to the beach! It was a great time for sure!!

It only took me a couple of days after having the mantel finished to start scheming it's first decor. Since Easter is coming quickly I thought I would do something simple for that.
