What We Accomplished Wednesday #24

Want to be a pin-up girl?  Join the party, and if you are featured, I'll pin your project to my Green Willow Pond Features Board!

Did you all survive the heat last week?  I almost had a complete meltdown.  I finally couldn't take it anymore and went to spend a night at my parents air conditioned home.  I couldn't believe it when my hubby told me to order an air conditioner from Home Depot.  He installed it the next day in the living room.  I spent two nights sleeping on the couch because our upstairs bedroom was unbearable.  But at least I could sleep at home!

We took a trip downstate to move our daughter's belongings home from her college apartment.  We went to Gilmore Car Museum.  It was amazing!  I posted about that here. Isn't the color on this classic beauty perfect!

Thank you all for linking up last week.  It looks like you managed to beat the heat and turn out some awesome projects!  Here is the Top Ten line up from the party.

Can you believe this beautiful armoire was once a TV cabinet?  Mary, at Orphans With Makeup transformed this piece!

Terry, at Forever Decorating, shows off the beautiful and peaceful sanctuary that is her backyard!  

This masculine dresser was redone by Faye, at The Shabby Cottage Home.  I love the paint job and those amazing handles!

Kristina, at Thrifty Southern Pilgrim, transformed this adorable little table.  She hand painted the detail on the apron.  Love it!

I have some suitcases I've been wanting to paint for some time.  Love this one done by Deborah, at Ramshackle Romance!

Lisa, at Create Inspire Me, was waiting for the perfect nightstands for her bedroom.  She scored this awesome pair and made the gorgeous with paint!

Always the romantic, Penny, from Penny's Treasures, spiffed up this corner of her sunroom with some thrifted treasures.  Spot of tea anyone?

I love the curvy lines of this kidney desk, painted by Kyra at Chateau Revivals.  Isn't it pretty!

This is one huge boxwood topiary.  Elisha, at Pneumatic Addict, made it herself and saved hundreds!  Isn't it impressive?

And last, but not least, my mouth is watering over these Mud Pie Mocha Brownies made by Nici at Posed Perfection.  These are a must try!

Now it's your turn.  What amazing things have you been up to?
