Time Travel Thursday #80 & Talented Time Travelers #79


"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 80th Time Travel Thursday linky party at The Brambleberry Cottage!
Are you ready to share your fondest memories, grandest dreams,
and most creative projects? Great!

Let's check out some of the creativity shared by
last week's talented time travelers first.


I love rust—well, if it's decorative rust we're talkin' about, of course!

With a lot of imagination and a little patience, John @ The Frugal Tree
was able to spring into action making this
rusty relic into a decorative delight.


Heidi @ the mindful nest shared a number of beautiful images
she's using for inspiration to create a relaxing retreat
 for her master suite.

And she has chosen the gorgeous colors
of her bridal bouquet as a decorative springboard.


Isn't this skirted ottoman/coffee table fabulous?!
It was just one of the many treasures that tickled my fancy
when I visited Betsy @ Betsy Speert's Blog.


You already know how much I love ironstone.  Needless to say,
I was quite excited with this pretty project shared
by Mitzi @ Mitzi's Miscellany.

I have an assortment of ironstone platters on hand, and I even
have some brass stencils.  And now, thanks to Mitzi,
I'll be adding typography to a few.


How do you remedy a cramped kitchen with too
little counter space...
with a magical makeover, of course!

Raquel @ Raquel English transformed an old dresser
 into a much needed island.

Way to go, Raquel—function AND good looks.  ; )

Now, are you talented travelers ready to impress us this week?
