What We Accomplished #74

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!

Thank you to all who sent me get well wishes. A friend of mine described the cold that was going around as a cross between a cold and ebola...ha! It was pretty awful, but I'm much better now, though my head is still somewhat stuffy. But spring has sprung...or at least it sure feels like it this week. The temps went from below zero to in the 50's in one week! I couldn't be more thrilled!

I created a new apron for the shop this week, with a couple more new ones in the wings. I really love the soft neutral gray and white in this design. The design is a bit more modern for me, but the neutral colors keep it classic. Love that!

We also took a quick trip to Gaylord to see our daughter and swap cars with her (she was up for a bachelorette party). Her car is acting up so we will get it fixed and swap back in two weeks at our friend's, daughter's wedding.

 I can never resist TJ Maxx shopping when I'm over there. I posted some treasures I picked up for my sewing room on my Facebook page. If you are so inclined, I would love to have you join my Facebook page here. I'm almost to 500 likes which is so much fun :)

There were plenty of amazing link-ups this past two weeks. This weeks top ten start with these pretty French labels. For the tutorial check it out at Dreams Factory.

 This beautiful craft space was built by Lindi's hubby for her. Isn't great? Lucky lady...nice hubby! Check it out at Love Create Celebrate.

Poppy, at With a Dash of Color, lined these metal tags with burlap and tied them onto baskets for beautiful organization. I have some of these tags. I just might steal borrow this idea!

All the lovely details of this gorgeous cabinet were lost before Anna, of Prastbracken, painted it white. What a beautiful piece!

Check out this super easy and fun banner with a twist made by Ann, from Duct Tape and Denim. Glitter letters top it off for a fun touch of bling! 

Brooke, from Creative Country Mom, revealed her new living room renovation. Those leather couches and industrial style tables just make the room!

This is just ingenious! Kim, from Living Vintage used an old post and vintage door knobs to create a jewelry tree!

I can't seem to get enough white. I just love the clean look, especially on pieces with beautiful details like this curvy dresser painted at Mary Beth's Place.

I also love pairing grays and blues with white. Lynda, from Lynda Bergman Decorative Artisan, painted this stunning ceiling medallion. What great details and beautiful colors!

Cherry and cheesecake go together like peanut butter and jelly. Cherries are one of my hubby's favorite foods. These cherry cheescake bars are right up his alley, and I think I could eat half a pan myself!  Find the recipe at Lou Lou Girls.

  27. Hi adorable woman! Much thanks to you for highlighting us! I love halting by your gathering every week, it's astonishing! I trust you get an opportunity to stop by our gathering. That would be awesome! toys for girls

  28. Vehicles are often alluded to as "play clay toys for the enormous young men". A little kid is exceptionally blissful when his folks got him vehicle miniatures yet as he arrives at adulthood he believed that smaller than normal should be a genuine one. Having a vehicle resembles a blessing from heaven for some grown-ups.


Thank you for taking time to leave me a comment. They make my day!
