Time Travel Thursday #54 & Talented Time Travelers #53


"We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories.
Some take us forward, they're called dreams."
~Jeremy Irons~


Welcome to the 54th Time Travel Thursday linky party at the Brambleberry Cottage!
Are you ready to share your fondest memories, grandest dreams,
 and most creative projects?  Great! 

But first...
let's take a peek at some of the creativity shared last week
by some of our talented time travelers.


I love EVERYTHING about this romantic vignette
created by Lavender Garden Cottage—especially the vintage lace-edged spread.

And guess what?
It's for sale in their online shop!


For the majority of us who create to sell, we are ever confronted with the dilemma
of having to release pieces we would prefer to keep.

After seeing this lovely transformation by Janet @ The Decorating Diaries,
 I can see why she wanted to keep this fabulous
French-inspired table.


At our last party, we had a guest all the way from Singapore.
Sandy @ Sandy's Space is another creative paper artist out there in Blogland
who has the talent to turn paper into art.


Want a super quick, super easy, super inexpensive way to make plant markers
for your garden?

The next time you visit a home improvement store like Lowe's, 
ask for a handful of paint stirs,
grab a can of chalkboard paint and get to work.

Or maybe you're like Erin @ OUT ON A LIMB and have everything you need
right at your fingertips.


What do you give someone who seems to have everything?
Deborah @ Upcycling my very ordinary life solved this problem for herself 
by creating this fabulous custom sign.

Now her friend doesn't only have everything, he has something uniquely special!   ; )


Well, that's a wrap for last week.  Thanks to all the talented time travelers
who joined the party.

So, what do you have to show off this week?

  13. I have had a few repainted furniture pieces that I didn't want to part with...

    I am going start painting those paint stir sticks with CB paint...a great idea! Maybe my hubby will stop putting them back on the storage paint shelf when I stick them in my garden.

    Love your BLOG! :)
