Share Your Creations Party # 42

Welcome to Share Your Creations Party #42! I hope you will link up and join in the fun! Since today is the first day of summer I thought I would feature some summer inspiration from a few weeks ago.

This  garden tablescape by Take Six is just beautiful! Perfect for a summer day...Those purple lupins are gorgeous! I would love to grow them someday.   
 Doesn't this look yummy for a hot summer day? Visit A Pinch of Joy for the recipe. Be prepared to find lots of wonderful recipes on her blog!


 Debbie at Debbiedoo's shared her colorful summer porch. I just love the hat on that rooster...too cute! Visit her for some fun summer inspiration!


 For my creations I thought I would show you a few things I have done in my kitchen. I found the lemon pitcher at T.J. Maxx a few months ago and decided to add some silk flowers and berries to it for a wildflower look. I am also looking for more lemon accents such as napkins and napkin rings. Has anyone seen any cute lemon accents lately?


 Now this is really simple! I set this birdhouse on an iron candle holder and wrapped some vines around it.

 I found this butterfly basket in Dallas a few months ago and filled it with yellow silk flowers and greenery and set it on top of my cabinets. As you probably know by the new plates I showed you the other day, I am really into butterflies!

 The french bee burlap containers came from T.J. Maxx too. I just added the silk greenery to them yesterday. I usually like filling them with fresh flowers. I'll be working on the kitchen more when I get back from Jamaica.

 As you can see I am ready! LOL! This is probably how I will look the whole time I am there. We are all looking forward to snorkeling! I hope to post lots of pics of our trip on my Facebook page as long as I have Wi Fi...so come along with me! We are flying out of Tulsa early Friday morning and are staying in Tulsa tomorrow night.  We will be back late next Thursday so no Share Your Creations party next week either. I'm so sorry! When I get back I will definitely get back in blogging mode and will also be making new items for my Etsy Store. I've been a little out of the loop lately!


What did you create? You can share 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.

Have a great week!!!

Kristen- I love your lemon theme. My hubby's gramma always had the OLD VERSION of lemon things and even then I thought it was fresh and pretty. Love that pitcher and your table setting.

Ummmm...do you think they will let you on the plane looking like that?;>) Have fun-xo Diana
