Talented Time Travelers in Focus # 32


Now let's travel back to last week's party and take a peek at some of the creative talent linked up.

One of my favorite blogging buddies, BJ @ Sweet Nothings linked her post on all things English.

And, ironically, one of the things she posted about, and that I liked the best—that old rusty sign above—is giving her a bit of a decorating quandary.

If you're not acquainted with BJ, you really must go by for a visit.

She is sure to delight—with her lovely images, tempting recipes, and a sense of humor uniquely her own.

I love this gal, and you will too!

Okay, all you knitting fans!

Have I got a special sweet treat for you.

Not only did Nikki @ Nikki's Nifty Knacks show us a cute craft using mason jars, but she shared this adorable cake, made to look like balls of knitting yarn.

Too cute!

Have you ever found something that you just had to have, because of the special memories it conjured up?

Margie @ THROUGH MARGIE'S WINDOW scored this vintage bottle of perfume at a thrift store and knew she had to have it to remind her of the decades when her mom wore it.

I love antiques, and I really like the unique.

And it just so happens that Sanctified Spaces shared glimpses of unique antiques from a recent house tour.

My favorite was this bed.

"Fit for a princess"—yes?!

So I bet you're thinking I forgot to showcase this party-goer back in December, right?

Nope; I just wanted to show you part of the lovely loot Lynda @ Something Created Everyday walked away with, from an estate sale.

You won't believe all the glorious goodies she got!

Every girl needs her very own creative space—agreed?

Wouldn't it be fun to have a sweet little cottage like this one, to call your very own?

Well, Pam @ Backwoods Cottage has this delightful big-girl dollhouse to play in all day long.

Ready for an "easy peasy" reuse of those clothes you were about to toss out?

Then be sure to look up this smarty-pants idea @ A Day in the Life of the Hooks.

We're all in love with burlap.

Why, because it's inexpensive, it's versatile, and it looks great made into home décor—like these pillows made by Kim @ The Madsen's.
I like what she had to say about her creations.
"Now there will be no mistake who sleeps on what side of the bed."  ; )

Thanks for all the creative ideas you shared last week Time Travelers.
