Share Your Creations Party #46



Welcome to Share Your Creations party #46! I hope you will link up and join in the fun! 

On with the features...

This laundry room office nook is decorated so cute with a french inspired theme. Visit Marisa's Pieces for more pictures of her laundry room. Sure would like to have all that storage! 

Yum! I bet these peaches are delicious! They are baked with butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Visit The Kitchen Is My Playground for the instructions. 

 I am always inspired by all of the beautiful painted furniture I see in blogland! This little $2.99 table was painted by Kathryn at The Dedicated House

I was at my friend's house swimming today and thought I would snap a few pics for my party. After all, there are a few things I created in her house, like the two arrangements on each side of the mantle. Some of you might recognize her house from my Christmas pictures. It always gets lots of attention! It is stunning!

 Love the beautiful bookcases. They are decorated so pretty...I put together all of the greenery. 

This bench is for the rooster lovers! Love it.
 I made the rooster arrangement for her island several years back. I love the pair together.
 Beautiful living room...we decorate the mantle to the hilt for Christmas. 

 This dining area is off the kitchen. Love everything about this room!  She also has a formal dining room that I did not get a picture of. I'll take more pictures when I'm over there again sometime. The whole house is beautiful! 


What did you create? 
You can share any 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.

Hi Kristen! Oh, your friend's house is so gorgeous and I'm sure she's thrilled to have you as a friend to help spiff it up. I love the Rooster arrangement in her kitchen you made. I'm partying with you today. I hope it's okay that I posted two things: my little glitter houses and then how I made them. If it's not proper you can delete one.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Marisa said...

Hi Kristen. Thank you for featuring my office nook and your friends home is beautiful.

Brooke Kroeger said...

Hi Kristen! This is Brooke from Indiana. Thanks so much for the feature the other week. I added the link on my site. I just love your house, I've told you before I use the same colors and pretty similar taste. Great minds think alike. I wish my dining room table was painted at the bottom like yours. It was my grandmas and I hate to change it, but love your look. Those chickens are darling. I do my kitchen in garden most of the year, but in the fall the chickens come out! I have been full time keeping up with the garden, but I hope to do some home posts soon to share. This week I am painting the girls bathroom chocolate brown and it is about to kill me! 4 coats and I am still touching up! See you next week! Hugs...Brooke
