Be Inspired Features and Party Wrap!

After more than four years and 210 parties, it's time to call it a wrap!

Elizabeth and Co.

I'm guessing we've had somewhere in the neighborhood of 25,000 links and 2,000 features. I am so appreciative of each and every one of you who took the time to share, visit and comment. You are a constant source of inspiration!

But life is busy and I need to focus my energy in other areas at the moment. Our Elizabeth & Co. Vintage Tag Sales have taken on a life of their own. My little Etsy Wreath Shop has wildly exceeded my expectations. And on a personal note, my family is growing and I am savoring every delightful moment!

I'll still be keeping tabs on all my fabulously creative blogging friends and hopefully I'll get back to sharing more project posts again soon.

So here you go, one final round of Be Inspired party features .....

Just imagine the possibilities with these sweet Shabby French Recycled Tin Cans from Diana at Dreams Factory!

Don't you just love the curves on the beautiful dresser from Studio Paint Design!

This charming little chair from Terry at The Curator's Collection has a wonderful aged finish and is just beautifully detailed!

No one takes bits and pieces and puts them together like my friend Gail over at My Repurposed Life. How cute is this photo display wall shelf!

Dawn from Leroy Lime shared all the details on her pallet herb garden!

And head on over to The Freckled Rose for some beautiful garden inspiration!

And that my friends is a wrap!

It's been a wonderful ride, Sharon, and I'll always have fond memories of your bog's parties. Thank you for being our hostess for so many fun years. I'm glad you're not ending your blog completely because, like me, you might feel the inspiration now and again to post something. If you do, I'll be happy to see you pop up on my bloglovin' and hear what's going on over here. Enjoy your tag sales, Etsy, and, of course the best, your wonderful family. Have a great summer!

I understand why you are closing up shop. I have been co-hosting Share Your Cup for less than 6 months and I am surprised at how much work it is.

Enjoy spending the time you will gain.

awww how bittersweet to be feature in your LAST party! you are so right, I LOVE bits and pieces.

I'll miss you party, it's the only one I link up to, so I suppose I'll need to find another one to visit.

I'm happy that you've made this decision as hard as I know it was. So exciting to hear that your Etsy shop is doing well, we talked about it more than once, and I'm pleased as punch for you!

I look forward to more project posts down the line, do NOT be a stranger Sharon!

It's been a good run, Sharon, and you are definitely the hostess with the mostess. I'm just sorry that I've been MIA. I will continue to follow you and hopefully check in more than I have the last 6 months or so.
