Share Your Creations Party #50

 Welcome to Share Your Creations #50!  Wow! I can't believe I've been hosting this party for almost a year now. It sure doesn't seem like it's been that long. I sure do appreciate your links every week! I am always inspired by your creativity!

On with the features...

Most of you know that I love red if you have seen my living room. So it is no surprise that this table caught my eye. It was painted with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Emperor's red by Kathy at Life on Lakeshore Drive. She also added gold guilded wax around the edges. Beautiful!

 These french burlap placemats are so easy to make out of fabric from Joann's.  Check out Pickles And Cheese for the tutorial. Cute!

 This chicken looks and sounds so good! Visit  A Pinch Of Joy for the recipe. There are a lot of great recipes on this blog.


 
I thought I would show you some fall items I have been working on. Some of them are custom orders and some are listed in my Etsy store.
I am making two of these arrangements for double doors. I plan on making more of these...just waiting on the metal containers.

 Here are a few custom lantern swags I recently made for customers.


I just listed this fall door swag in my Etsy Store. Loving the rich fall colors!

He is in my store too!

 Here is a custom lantern swag and frame I made for a sweet lady. Thanks Nicole! I'm so glad you are pleased. I love hearing from my customers!

That is just a little bit of what I've been working on. More fall to come!

What did you create?

You are welcome to share anything you have created. An item, a recipe, a room you have decorated, a vignette, a piece of furniture you have painted and the list goes on and on...

I would appreciate a link back to my blog so others can find the party. Thanks!
