Five On Friday

(If your blog is featured, please grab a button on the right.)

Check out this trash to treasure find, Brittany, at Pretty Handy Girl transformed from sad to fab! Upholstering Little Bench-A sweet spot to land just made me smile! I'm always amazed at the remakes I see, and this is an no exception. She's just completed a trashy chair she found..."Daisy"! Another fabulous idea from Brittany, Hanging Jar Storage in her garage, is a neat treat for all of us! One of my new favorite blogs for go, and please tell her I sent you!

Char at Crap I've Made is celebrating Christmas in July! She shares a gift idea all of us would appreciate, Flat Iron Travel Pouch Tutorial. Ho! Ho! Ho!...I'm so not there, but I will be soon!


This isn't the first Ironing Board Cover I've seen, but it is the cutest! With her soldier off training, Nicole at Whimsy lane crafts is busy making-over her laundry space. She shows us step-by-step just how it's done in her Laundry Closet Makeover-Part 5. I'm off to find 2 yards of fabric today!

Two lucky boys at Leanne's house got this Back-to-School Survival Kit this last week. It sure seems early to hit the books, but their Mom knows how to Organize and Decorate Everything. Here's the cute love note, and you'll want to see the contents of her sweet survival kit!

Isn't this colorful Trip Around the World quilt, set on-point, just smashing? Rita at Red Pepper Quilts shares how she quilted it for a Down Under Doll Quilt Swap #1. Head on down to see how pretty the back is too!

Have an inspired weekend all!
