Talented Time Travelers in Focus #44


But first, let's recap some of the creative projects linked to last week's party.

Janina @ Janina a la Maison is slowly transforming her "woman cave" into a sweet little spot that would make any Francophile smile.

The fabulous project redo—shown above—is one of the focal points for that space.  Visit Janina to find out how she created the lovely design on it, as well as, the cute craft on top of it.

When I saw the link for this project, by Brittany & Grant @ live your life, I was reminded of the years the Yankee and I spent deconstructing barns, old houses, buildings, etc. to repurpose the vintage wood and architectural elements.

You just cannot reproduce the timeworn character that old wood infuses into a piece.  Just take a peek at the great looking table above—constructed by Grant from old barn wood—to see what I mean.

Do you like secrets?  Here's a better question.  Can you keep a secret?

Well, there's a special one pertaining to this lovely antique buffet, and I think you'll find the details surrounding the secret rather interesting, too.

You can get all the juicy details when you visit Shannon @ Cozy Home Scenes.

I love all things wedding related—the elegant gowns, the themed decorations, the beautiful  flowers, the  unique venues...the utter romance of it all!

So , if you're like me, you'll want to be a part of Stephanie's Wedding Blog Party taking place June 10th.

Visit Stephanie @ Angelic Accents for all the details!

It's always fun to meet new people, and all the more so, when they 're from a different land and culture.  That has become one of the most interesting aspects of blogging for me—being able to meet people from all over the world.

I was recently introduced to another foreign blogging friend, Martinia @ CERAMICA CHE PASSIONE!

If you have an appreciation for hand painted ceramics, you will love her work!

The beautiful piece above is one of Martinia's creations.

As you can see, there was a lot of talent linked to the party last week.  So what ya got cookin' this week
