Be Inspired Features and Link Party #78

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back for features and party day!
 
Elizabeth and Co.

It's going to be a crazy hot week and we're having a tag sale! I guess that's to be expected in July. Let's just hope we don't all melt! ... I've been away for most of the last two weeks so I didn't get to leave comments everywhere, but I did check out each and every post. You all are surely not letting the heat slow you down one little bit! Here are just a few of the projects that caught my eye ...

Susan from Sunflower Hugs shared this pair of gorgeous French Country Night Tables!


Jenna from Rain on a Tin Roof gave this pair of industrial stools a super cute, Ralph Lauren inspired makeover. What a great color combination!


Cassie from Primitive & Proper took one really beat-up dresser and made it totally adorable in clover green with sparkly turquoise knobs! She's braving the heat this weekend too with a barn sale at Sweet Clover!


This coffee table had really seen better days until Karen from Restyled Vintage gave it a fresh coastal vibe!


How totally cool is this red and white striped water ski with a mason jar lantern from Lake Girl Paints!


Deb also used a water ski to showcase family photos!
 
  
I am a huge fan of all kinds of salsa and yes I love cilantro! Did you know that some people have a genetic predisposition to dislike cilantro? They think it smells and tastes "soapy". I think it smells and tastes delicious, so it's a welcome addition to my salsa. This watermelon salsa recipe from Diane at An Extraordinary Day looks so cool and refreshing. It calls for both cilantro and mint! Yum!!!
 
 
 
Thanks so much to everyone who linked up and linked back!
We so appreciate having you here. If you've been featured, feel free to grab a cute little button from the sidebar!

Now on to this week's party...
 
* Link up your furniture makeovers, DIY projects, home decor, crafts, recipes, thrifty finds, etc... We want to see whatever is inspiring you at the moment!
 
* Grab a party button or link back in some way. You must have a visible link back to be considered for a feature!
 
* And we'd love to have you follow along with us!
 
We'll be back next Tuesday with features and a brand new party. Now let's be inspired together!

I just never tire of seeing people's furniture come to life via paint! Great features...especially Cassie's as I'm working on a green desk right now for a client :)

I shared your post from yesterday with my group of Mavens and they were all drooling!

So many awesome links this time!! I love everything!

Laurel Stephens said...

Absolutely terrific features this week, Sharon. I especially love... gosh, I can't pick. I love all of them. I love salsa, too, and I used to HATE the smell of cilantro. One day, it just started smelling fresh and clean instead of yukky. Isn't that strange? Anyway, now I put handfuls in my salsa. I'm going to go check out Diane's recipe. Looks great! Thanks for hosting today!

Jenna LaFevor said...

Nice I also share with you something hope this helpful for you. There is something brilliant about this place for those parents out there looking for something to entertain your little ones while you relax. Their Explore-a-shore splash park out back is GREAT! The kids are pretty much all in this circular area with no where to escape, and it's blocked in by a bar. Yes, a bar, as in liquor. You can kick back with a margarita while your little one runs and frolics to their heart's content. They have a smaller, attached area for those under 42", in addition to a giant sandbox that is covered for shade. It's also a cool spot to watch the cruise ships come in and out. Just beware of the blaring horn, scares the little ones a bit. Check it out thanks.
