Share Your Creations Party # 40!

Welcome to Share Your Creations Party #40! I can't believe we are on #40...Wow! It seems like I just started this party! Time is flying by. I hope you will link up and join in the fun this week. There were alot of great links last week! I always enjoy looking through all of them. This week there were some wonderful recipes! You should check them out.

On with the features...

Wouldn't this be a great Fourth Of July Dessert? Visit Annie's Home for the recipe.

I love the color of this secretary! Visit Deep In The Heart Of Arkansas for the before pics.



What a fun idea to have a candy bar at a wedding or party. Yum! Visit Take Six for more yummy pics.

For my creation I thought I would show you my no sew table runner. It is made from a piece of material I had left over from my kitchen curtain. All I did was hem the edges with fabric glue and added the fringe on the ends. Simple! I showed you the cage with the bird and florals a while back, although it has changed a little since then.


I also added a tray with a bird. I have had the tray in my bathroom for several years but decided to bring it in the dining room for something different.

What did you create?
You can link an item you created, a room you have decorated, a piece of furniture you have painted, a vignette, 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 that cloche, Kristen! I just ordered a tall one like that from Decor Steals the other day. Of course, I have no idea how I will decorate it, but I just loved the pedestal base to it. Thanks for hosting!

Great features, I have been searching craigslist for a secretary to paint. Cute color!
What a cute runner too. It looks great with the colors in the room.

Love your little birds and colors in your dining room. My own house matches yours, lol. I never tire of fall colors like reds and oranges. My kitchen is done in garden and birds, watch out you may get quite a collection going!
