Fab Friday Favorites

Who was caught being fabulous this week? Let's see ....

Lindsey and Nicole at the Pleated Poppy came up with this wonderful list of family rules. Pretty and practical.  I've got a "rules" project on the back burner and this definitely gives me a different way of approaching it.

Over at Creative Jewish Mom they have these wonderful  branches with tissue paper blossoms. They look so real!

This lovely Napa Style inspired lazy susan is from Room to Inspire and is just perfect! Read how it was put together from misc. pieces.

Amanda at a Lovely Place to Land took an old suitcase and made this wonder for a special girl. If purple isn't your color, just think of all the possibilities this technique has. Colors to match your room, brown with a world traveler theme, almost any color with the multitude of scrap book papers available, even wrapping paper. What would you do with said suitcase? Why have it out, stacked with other suitcases as an end table, plus have a bunch of storage. I can think of 2 people I know who need end tables. Hmmm..... I might have to make a trip go Goodwill.

Linday at The Cottage Home came up with this ultra creative way to store spools of ribbon. It's a pants hanger! Isn't she clever?

I love the idea of a birthday banner, as done by Pickup Some Creativity. What a great tradition to start with your family.

A Girl and a Glue Gun made these adorable cord ties out of fabric. Now I'm not a big sewer, but even I can whip up a couple of these beauties. With the sewing machine cover that will be made "some day" my sewing machine will be all tricked out. What fun.

Blogland is just full of ruffled, flower strewn pillows and clothing. It's very popular right now. I think this is one of the best pillow/rose combos that I've seen. It's sweet, but something that I could still have in my more modern space. This is from Suzanne at Just Another Hang Up and it has a tutorial. Check out her site, there are wonderful projects and she has an Etsy store with great things!

Shannon over at Quarry Orchard made these unique globe balls. I've never seen anything like them and just adore them. I want to have a tray (if I can ever figure out where to put it) with different texture balls in them and this would be a perfect addition. Hop on over for her tutorial.

Alicia over at Thrifty and Chic came up with this headband for her headboard. I LOVE this. Who would have thought to do this? Why Alicia of course!

I hope you enjoyed this week's spin around the web. I can't wait to see what I find for next week!
