Share Your Creations #48

Welcome to Share Your Creations party #48! Now I'm back on track...Sorry to post two parties back to back. 

 Since I was so late posting the party due to computer problems there were not a lot of entries. However, no matter how many join...there is always talent!

Check out this beautiful mantlescape at The Everyday Home. You will find lots of fall inspiration there!  


I love the paint and fabrics on these pretty chairs. Check out Ramblings Of A Southern Gal for the before and afters.


Oh how I love hydrangeas! This pretty blue and white tablescape was created by Pinky at Designs By Pinky.

Since a lot of you liked the lantern swag I posted last week I thought I would show you one I made for fall. I have had several orders for these and have decided to sell them in my Etsy store. I am starting with fall and then will move into Christmas. I am making these so they can attach to your own lantern. I can make them in any size you would like! I will be doing all different ones for fall including some with pumpkins...so keep your eyes on my store for new items! I will also take special requests.


It will be very simple to attach. It will tie around the top of the lantern and can easily be taken off to be changed out for the seasons.


What did you create?
You can share an 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.

Oooh, I'll look forward to those swags, Kristen! I already have two things I would put them on and I'm sure I could come up with several more {like my birdcages}.

a lantern similar in size to yours. Your decorating ideas are wonderful! Thanks.
