Share Your Creations Party # 34


Welcome to Share Your Creations party #34! I hope you will link up and join in the fun this week!




Share Your Creations
On with the features...
 
Suzy at Worthing Court shared her newly redecorated foyer. It turned out so pretty! You might remember I showed you a pic of this mirror in my "Sneak Peek" post. Suzy mentioned on her blog that she purchased the mirror at Home Depot for $34.99 so I ran out to get one the next day. What a deal!
 

Check out My Hearts Desire Blog for the tutorial on this cute umbrella door arrangement.

There were several yummy recipe links this week! 
Don't these snickerdoodle brownies look delicious? Check out Carmel Potatoes for the recipe.


Yum! Black Tie Creme Brulee...these look delicious too! Check out Pat's Pink Apron for the recipe.

 For my creation I thought I would show you a little lamp shade redo. I bought this lamp for my kitchen at Hobby Lobby after my other one fried from a short. Glad it didn't catch the house on fire! Anyway, the shade is really cute with the flower, but it just wasn't what I had in mind for the kitchen. However, I loved the burlap fabric on the shade.

So I took the flower off and added a rhinestone flower. I like a little sparkle in the kitchen!  I also added the ball fringe and trim around the bottom and top.  

I also have this ball fringe on my curtain and shade in the kitchen. I love it!

What did you create?

You can link any item you have created, a room you have decorated, a vignette, a piece of furniture you have painted, a recipe and the list goes on and on...

Please add a link back to my blog so others can find the party.

I LOVE you lamp redo! I have a little red lamp in my kitchen and I may need to add a few things now... :)

Thanks for hosting!

Love the room "redo". Isn't it amazing that we are never "done" with any room - they are always being tweaked (or at least at my house they are!). Thanks for hosting every week.
Hugs -
Carol
