Be Inspired Features and Link Party #100

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

How awesome to kick off the new year with our 100th link party!
Thank you for sharing your talent and inspiration with us week after week.
Can't wait to see what you have in store for 2014!

Since we took a little blog break over the holidays, most of today's features are Christmas related. So get ready to pin away and start your inspiration files for next year!

Robin from Happy at Home shared a roundup of thirteen handmade Christmas décor projects, each one beautiful and totally doable. You really want to bookmark her entire post for next Christmas!

How cute are these glittery bird nest ornaments made from vintage jello molds by Cassie over at Primitive & Proper!

The Pin Junkie created the sweetest little Christmas Sheep from bits and bits that you probably already have around the house!

I absolutely love Heath bars, so I was thrilled to see that The Pin Junkie also shared this recipe for Homemade Old-Fashioned English Toffee!
Danielle from Silver Pennies shared her recipe for homemade Easy Peppermint Bark!
And Anjana from At the Corner of Happy and Harried shared a Sunny Orange Pound Cake that looks divine. Now I know exactly what to do with that big bag of oranges I just bought!
Hot chocolate bars are very popular right now and so much fun all winter long.
And if you stop by Upcycled Treasures, you will find a super cute chalkboard printable that's just perfect for this crazy cold weather that many of us are experiencing!
(This morning it is zero degrees here, with a wind chill of -20, brrr!)

This Wild Herbs Christmas Wreath from Meeha Meeha is beautiful and comes with the best story! Meeha Meeha lives in Romania, where wreaths are not all that common and where there are no big craft stores filled with supplies. But she loved the wreaths she saw on design blogs and decided to head outside, gather some natural materials and try her hand at making her very first wreath. She was convinced that it would be a total failure, but I think we can all agree that Meeha Meeha's wreath is simply stunning!

I know you love holiday house tours, so let's wrap it up with one of my very favorites this year. Denise over at Pink Postcard has a real knack for blending vintage and modern and keeping it all so fresh and pretty. Her home is lovely all year round, but it really sparkles at Christmas!


Thanks so much to every one who linked up and linked back!
If you've been featured, feel free to grab a cute little button from the sidebar!

Happy 100!!! Wow! What an accomplishment. Thank you so much Sharon for always being the most gracious hostess. Your party is one of my very favorites. :) And the features this week....there are so many good ideas for winter decorating. With all this snow and cold....a gal must do something to survive the season. Yes?
This week I joined the Project Inspire{d} hosting team. Our link party goes live every Monday night at 8 EST. I’d be delighted if you would consider popping over and linking up some of your very inspiring posts: http://bit.ly/1bNlzpV
