Recipes and DIY Projects!

You guys are so great! Have I mentioned that I love going through the projects and recipes you link up every Thursday? Because, I like, totally do. 

I have a confession. I really debated about featuring/not featuring Valentine's Day projects. Because, well, today is the day AFTER Valentine's Day (clearly) and, well, we may be a bit over the holiday by now. However, you linked up some AMAZING projects. You really made it hard for me to decide. In the end, I decided against featuring Valentine projects. BUT, if you are still looking to pin some inspiring Valentine ideas, by all means, head over to the party and click through to the sites!! And, then pin like there's no tomorrow! 

On to those features...

Do-It-Yourself Projects:
ReMade Simple linked up this great Anthropologie knock-off idea. Complete with beautiful photos to drool over. I sort of have a blog crush on ReMade Simple. I'm inspired every.single.visit!

It's Overflowing linked up this amazing desk space. That she and her hubby BUILT. Awesome, right??

Seven Alive showed us this SUPER cute crocheted camera strap!! Isn't it lovely??

Do you love love stories?? Then head over to Woven Home and check out this French-Inspired chair and read about the "love story".

Becoming Martha showed us how she turned a CLOSET into her very own craft space!! Amazing and inspiring!

Michelle Lea Designs showed us her newly spruced homework station. I love every detail! I kind of wish I had some homework to do so I can sit there and admire the pretties!!

Queen B, Creative Me linked up two cute pillows she made from an etsy find. I love this Union Jack-inspired print! 
Would you be brave enough to paint your washing machine?? I don't know if I would have if I hadn't read this tute from Five Days, Five Ways! AMAZING! I love the fun color and, of course, the polka dots! (Of course, anyone who BUILDS THEIR HOUSE by hand, from scratch is brave enough to try a project like this!!)

and, now for a few...

At first glance, this yumminess from Once a Mom, Always a Cook might appear to be a Valentine's Day post. But, it's just styled that way. The recipe could be good...oh, any ol' day of the week! Brownie Batter Dip? Yes, please!

MorningNooNight shared this scrumptious recipe for Lemonade Cake. Yummy!!

My Road to Savings shared this recipe for Zuppa Toscana that looks delicious!!

I'll see you tomorrow for a fun PARTY!! (Actually, I'll open the party tonight for you early birds!!)

  1. You definitely have some amazing posts in your features. I LOVE them all! See you tomorrow!


  2. Even if you did post more Valentine link up features after the fact, it gives a crafter ideas for next year or depending on the project, a crafter can alter it now to fit a theme, decor or whatever.

  3. Great post - I love all these features. I am your newest Linky Follower from The Stuff of Success. If you get a chance stop on over and say hello. Thanks Athena

  11. You are all so very welcome! Thanks for linking up and for all your sweet words!!

    Audra, I just reread and realized I'd titled your recipe "Brown Batter Dip". Ha! Sorry for the typo. Makes it sound a whole lot less yummy. It's fixed now! Good thing you labeled you picture!! :)

    Kristin, very very true!! You had some wonderful projects linked up and some of them definitely would have been on a Valentine round-up had I done one!!

  12. While everything looks great, especially the food, it's the washing machine that got me to click over!
