Talented Time Travelers in Focus #40

But first, let's focus on some of the talent linked to last week's party.

Sarah @ THREE BOYS  is making a very special new dress for Vickie, and she has already painted Vickie's little arms and legs, in anticipation of the new outfit.   What?! 

Oh, don't worry; Vickie is just the gorgeous chair Sarah is giving a makeover!  lol

My longtime blogging buddy, Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions, is at it again!  She's famous for turning the mundane into the marvelous—like this simple wooden tray, she gave a chic French twist.

We bloggers find inspiration everywhere, right?  Well Lois @ Frugal Decor Mom found some at a local store and, with the help of family, created this terrific piece of wall art for her son's room.

When I was growing up, my sweet old country grandma used to say, "You just can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear!"  But those of us in Blogland know better.  ; )

Just visit Teresa @ Magazine Your Home for proof!

Here's a really cute way to use the various odd pieces of china and glass you might be tempted to toss.  Just do as Benita @ Butterflies & Seashells did and create yard art with them.

Hydrangeas and peonies are my very favorite flowering bushes, so I'm always scouting out new ways to display them around my home. 

Thanks to Claire @ Bless My Nest, I now have several new lovely ways to do just that.

What happens when you take several pretty pieces, gleaned from here and there, and marry them?  Why you end up with a happy union, of course—just like Lanell @ HOOT-N-NANNY, with this sweet little candy dish.

Are there limits to what you would be willing to do, to acquire just the right materials for that special project you envision?  Visit Anne @ BIRD/LIKE to see the wilds she was willing to brave to produce her lovely, unique signs.

Some creations are relatively inexpensive to make but look like a million when all is said and done.  That's a most befitting description for this fabulous mirror created by Mimi @ blue roof cabin!

Well, another week has drawn to a close!  And it's always so much fun to show off the incredible  talent displayed by you lovely travelers!  Now what do you have to show for yourselves this week?
