Talented Time Travelers in Focus #23

Be sure to join this week's linky party—still in progress here!

Let's go back in time and revisit some of the creative projects linked to last week's party, as well.

If you like vintage, shabby, and French, you will love visiting Mikey @ Shabby French Cottage.

But hurry, before it's time to put the Christmas decorations away.

Trust me; you'll want to see the holiday treasures Mikey's cottage holds!

Star light, star bright...
okay, maybe this little star isn't light or bright, but it shines with "cuteness," nonetheless.

Suzanne @ Meridian Road offered a great tutorial for creating this little beauty.

If your decorating style embraces the colors of surf and sand, then boogie on over to Mary's @ Boogieboard Cottage to see her beautiful "beachy" vignettes.

A few months ago, I passed up the opportunity to buy a handful of vintage Putz houses, very similar to the ones you see here.

After seeing the adorable arrangement Roselle @ Seaside Rose Creations put together, I'm totally regretting that decision. ;(

In my many years of reusing, repurposing, and reinventing, I've seen a lot of unique remakes.

But I have to say, this "foiled" dresser by Debra @ DeJa Renew was a first for me.

Great way to think out of the box, Debra—literally!

Sommer @ Designer Garden was a busy, busy girl this year creating one decoration after another for the holidays.

It paid off, Sommer.  Everything looks fabulous!

I'm happy to introduce you to a new kid on the blogging block—fifteen-year-old Crafty Diva @ Fashionista for Less.

This young lady has been developing her needle-craft skills for some time now.

Be sure to go by and say hi!

Some people just have a knack for turning the mundane into something marvelous.

Good thing for her son that Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. is one such person—'cause he gets the goods.

When you were in school, did you learn how to multiply by dividing?

To see what I mean, be sure to visit Diana @ Blogging by Pictures, and see how she created an abundance of decorations for her tree—by doing just that.

It's always fun to see how old ideas resurface years later.

When I saw this cute, festive Christmas tree—created from magazines—by Jana @ Giggles, Glitz & Glam, I had a flashback to my past.

I remember seeing those in craft magazines when I was a kid—a looong time ago! 

Thanks so much to each and every traveler who took the time to join the fun last week.

I can't wait to see what creative ideas you link to this week's Time Travel Thursday party!

I hope everyone has a safe and blessed Christmas!

  4. So many thank yous for featuring me! I really enjoy reading your blog and seeing all the pretties you have to share! Merry Christmas!

  5. I love all of your decorations! They are so pretty!! I am going crazy over that sheet music star! I love it! You should do a tutorial (for the craft-challenged like me)! Are you ready for the last week of the year? I swear I don't know where 2010 went!

  6. Everything looks so festive.

    Happy New Year! La

  7. ooohhh....ahhhh...all of those projects are totally up my alley! I'm a big fan of Putz houses and have a few vintage collections. I tried making my own this year using the cardboard from cereal boxes and the patterns from Martha Stewart, and the results were positively charming. With your creativity and talent, I know you'd have success just the same, so perhaps next year?

  8. Thanks for the feature!
    There were some really great projects and they were so fun to see. :)


Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to comment.
