Time Travel Thursday #58 & Talented Time Travelers in Focus #57


"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 58th Time Travel Thursday linky party at the Brambleberry Cottage!
Are you ready to share your fondest memories, grandest dreams,
and most creative projects? Great!

First...
let's revisit some of the talented time travelers


We all love thriftin', right?  Well, you won't believe the goodies
Tami @ A Girls Gotta Nest found thrifting in her dad's garage
What you see above is just the tip of the iceberg.


What do you do when find something you like, but it doesn't quite fit your style?
You give it a makeover, of course.  This sweet little statue was
completely transformed by Judi @ Loving All Things Romantic.


Sincerely Retro took all the football fans on a walk down memory lane with a
peek at a magazine from 1963.


If you're in a pickle, looking for a cute way to display bathroom essentials,
visit Linda @ Nina's Nest for a simple,
yet charming solution.


This trendy setting actually revolves around a total redo of a once not-so-trendy chair. 
But twin sisters, Kahli and Milla of Design Par Deux took this piece
 from ho-hum to hip.


What's black and white and pink all over?  The answer...this very pretty
tablescape by Judy @ A Southern Belle Dishes on Decor .  There's a great
story behind the color combo, by the way.


Aren't these the most fabulous children's antique sewing machines?
They are the wonderful collection of Lambs and Ivy Designs, who also
has an Etsy shop filled with beautiful rose ribbonwork
embellishments.


There's a new DIYer in Blogland showin' off her talents.  So be sure
to run by and say hello to Kim @ Kimberlyann.  And while you're there,
note the sweet baby boy in a number of her pics.


Can you believe it's already time for school again?
Are you looking for some creative snacks for the kiddos?  Craft Zoo
shared a couple of tasty treats that are sure to be hits with the school crowd.


Do you like old houses?  Would you like to take a tour?  Then visit
Patti @ Pretty Old Houses and tour the charming home of her dear friend Joan.
And when you've finished that tour, you'll discover other pretty places
to ponder on Patti's blog.

Wow!!!  Lot's of great stuff linked up last week.
Now...can you top it this week?!

IF YOU LINK TO THE PARTY, PLEASE BE SURE TO LINK BACK TO THE BRAMBLEBERRY COTTAGE ON YOUR BLOG.

  26. Liz, thank you from the bottom on my heart for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower. I get very excited when someone does that! I am very excited to be featured next week on your blog. It is one I look to for lessons on blogging.
    So lovely to meet you. I'm a Kansas girl, born & bred, but my mother and grandmother were southerners through and through, so I feel some commonality with you. I'll definitely check-in with you next week! I'm so excited.
