Talented Time Travelers in Focus #2

Last week, talented time travelers showed up in force. Take a look at their timely creations and terrific ideas!

Lisa @ Lisa's Creative Home sped through the time tunnel to share several great ideas for vintage shutter reuse. This nautical table is just too cute!

A little bit of everything passed down a creative use for galvanized spikes to keep our vintage ribbon spools tidy.

Ashlee @ I'm Topsy Turvy transformed a window from the past to a table that's perfect for her family's present day needs.

We took a trip back in time with Chel @ Born Broken to discover a very interesting fact about Thomas Edison.  Go find out what it is.

Move over Pottery Barn! Amanda @ The Hand Me Down House has given you some competition with her amazing DIY hanging light.

Esther @ Fleur Cottage created a quaint blast from the past using vintage crib springs to create a wonderful outdoor vignette.

Van @ Thrift Core showed us how to take vintage thrift store finds to create a personal work space that's a pleasure to play work in.

Mary Ellen @ The Working Home Keeper brought a vintage armoire into the twenty-first-century with a little paint…and a lot of elbow grease. Truly a trash-to-treasure fairytale.

Pop on over and visit CC @ Lace 'n' Ribbon Roses to see the sweet little cloche cover she created from vintage lovelies.

Marie @ Sally Lee by the Sea reused an old "time" piece to create a nifty, thrifty seaside table.

Jude @ Dolce Cape Cod shared a wonderful tutorial on making grapevine wreaths. Thanks, Jude! We're "grapeful" for the info.

Jean @ SUGAR AND SPICE shared a creative use for a ladle. Her idea is really for the birds!

Donene @ EasyPeasy Grandma gave her deck décor a trendy update with paint. Terrific time machine transformation, Donene!

Want a fun, unique gift idea? Then Diane @ Pittypat Paperie can fix you up.

Another fabulous job time travelers!

Now…where will your creativity take us this week…back in time or into the future?
