Hello Dear Readers!

It's Monday! And....I've decided that on Mondays, I'll showcase some of the wonderful projects ya'll featured on my Friday Everything But the Kitchen Sink link party! So many of you found the time to link up and I'm so glad! I learn so much from your projects, tutorials, thoughts and visions. It's wonderful, inspiring stuff. I hope you enjoyed browsing around as much as I did! Here are some that stood out to me for some reason or another (but remember---they were ALL great and wonderful! I hope you can link up again this Friday!)

Hannah from Young and Crafty, featured her Pottery Barn inspired leaning bookshelves. So unique and different and I LOVE it!

Speaking of PB knock-offs, over at Nice Girl Notes, she shows us how we can make our own mercury pumpkins! These look so sophisticated....I may just have to try it for my own Fall decor!

Amy at Crafts are Contagious made this amazing headboard decoration from an antique window. I'm lovin' the flower (which she made) and the distressed pics are always a favorite!

Marcy and Antiquechase
gives some wonderful tips on how to decorate with antique books. For all the book lovers out there, this is a wonderful solution to making your house look sophisticated and well-read. ;) I love it and am definitely trying it! What's wonderful is that all of her antique books were found at Good Will or secondhand! Brilliant.

Vicki, from Before This and After, shows us that perseverance is key! After a failed first attempt, she struck gold when she decided to use some beautiful fabric and Mod Podge it onto her filing cabinet! It looks better than new and I love the color.
