Be Inspired Features and Link Party #101

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back for features and party day!

In addition to today's features, there were a ton of really wonderful Top 10 posts at the party last week. If you have a chance, I suggest you go back and take a look!
Meet Bernadette from White Cottage Boutique. She is just stunning in navy blue!

Over the weekend, Megan and I were talking about how maybe navy blue could have been (should have been) the Pantone color of the year.  Upcycled Treasures shared a post filled with lovely images using radiant orchid. Not sure it really works in my house, but if a big vase of lilacs qualify, then count me in!

Deb from Twice Nice used the frosty weather as inspiration for the beautiful vintage chest on chest dresser with a hand-painted detail!

Gail from My Repurposed Life just might be the queen of turning headboards into benches. This time around, she shared a wonderful tutorial for making a corner headboard bench!

I love the simplicity of this DIY sofa table from Urbane Jane!

Jamie from Anderson & Grant beautifully transformed thrift store glass vases into candlesticks with a little paint and sandpaper. Don't you love when a simple idea knocks your socks off?

Debbie from Painted Therapy shared her method of painting hardware. Sometimes a girl has to get creative!

Looking for a special treat for your Valentine? You might want to try these Easy Homemade Truffles from Sarah at Linley House!
Aren't they gorgeous?

Thanks so much to everyone who linked up and linked back!

*Grab a party button or link back in some way.
*And we'd love to have you follow along with us!

We'll be back next Tuesday with features and a brand new party!

I agree Sharon, navy blue is popping up all over the place. Sometimes the color "setters" aren't the ones in the know. LOL

Hope your week is filled with the Extraordinary!

I agree about the navy blue also... not sure I'm wild about the orchid. :)

LOVE the painting hardware tip.

thanks so much for including my corner bench with this fabulous group of features Sharon.

What a great sofa table - it looks amazing.

Laurel Stephens said...

That radiant orchid sure demands attention, doesn't it? I agree with you, I think navy blue is going to be really big this year. Great features this week, Sharon!

Poppy said...

I agree on the Navy. I don't think the violet color would work in too many people's homes, but those lilacs are gorgeous, I can almost smell them!

Thank you Sharon for the feature!

NanaDiana said...

Great party, Sharon. I love the navy. I had navy and rose back in the 80's when everyone had mauve and country blue. lol 'course I had that, too, later.

I saw a whole huge lavender display today. I do have a guest room with lavender accents-lilac colored ones-that I love but I don't think I would want a whole house of it. I do think it blends beautifully with grey though- xo Diana

Thanks for hosting, Sharon! :) I've always loved navy blue- that is a great color, and inspires me to get going on a dresser I've had waiting in the wings.

Unknown said...

Thanks for hosting the linkup this week! Those lilacs are beautiful! I'm looking (and posted about) into re-designing my bedroom and a color palette of grey, lavender and white is one of the ideas I had. Thanks for sharing!

Following you on facebook!
