Friday Link Up Party #43 and Les Preferes

I am  foument dans l’amour (Madly in love in Franglaise…) with graphics on furniture.  Esp. if they are in French!  I love this from Junkin’ Junky

 Once again, Catherine, the mastermind behind  Freddy and Petuniahas gone completely outside the box with this project, Jewelery Box I should say, she gives detailed instructions on how to make this yourself from a frame and picture.  LOVE!

When I saw this collection of what to do with old springs, I became very Verclempt.  See, a few years ago, I had a lovely collection of springs from a couch we eventually chopped up and cannibalized for parts.  I searched hi and lo on the Internet, this was BP (before Pinterest) and I just could not find any good ideas for them, so I……threw in the trash
 Thank goodness this will never happen again, because Kim from Too Much Timehas shown a bunch of great ideas to use them for.Â

Have you seen all the fantastique floors that people are DIYing?  There are so many great ones, in fact I just saw that the stenciled floor made it into Country Living online.  See?  You never know where your projects will take you.  This one is made from….PAPER GROCERY BAGS.  It looks like an expensive Concrete texture or some kind of leather floor.   This is from 4 You With Love

And for the Grand Finale!!!!  Here is a Cece Caldwell project.  If you don’t know about Cece, go check it out at this link and then come back here for the rest of the show.  If you haven’t tried this paint, you will want to ASAP.  It is 100% green, is similar, but superior to chalk paint and is made here in the U.S.  This is the most adorable project from Bungalow 47.  I love the Green with the modern black design.  It is perfect for spring.Â

  I know we all love a good linky party, here are some more you won’t want to miss!
After you link up here, be sure to head over to my friends.  You never know where your next piece of inspiration may come from.  Check out these fun parties and stick around while you are there to visit their lovely blogs.Â

      Wyoming’s position is to stand benhid the MW. Not sure if anything too major happens. The merger with CUSA doesn’t do much for me and doesn’t in my opinion give both BCS access. I don’t see anyone leaving, I really don’t. Not much UW can do. I can tell you no one is after them or wanting to get rid of them in the MW. If the CUSA merger helps then I’m fine with it but I don’t see how it does. Both leagues have similar TV deals. Combining forces may just split too many pieces of the pie. From UW’s take with their size and budget there isn’t a ton it can do to control any of this.RG

    Hi Karen, I found your blog through another blog off of a Linky party and I'm so glad I did. I love the projects and definitely need to look at them. I don't get much time to re-do things, but I'm hoping to re-do our old entertainment center and actually make it into a hutch. It will be a huge undertaking, but I think I know how I want it to turn out. I'm now a follower. If you have a chance I hope you'll stop by.

    Hugs, LisaKay
