Time for a shout out to so many of you who linked up your creativity to this week’s Fair Weather Forum Link Party, all about spring projects.  Thank you to each and every one of you who participated!  There were over 400 inspiring links to browse, I was amazed at all of the creativity out there in blog land! 

Here are some highlights:

This coffee table turned bench by Fab Rehab Creations is a favorite!

I’m loving these chalkboard herb pots at Scissors and Spatulas.  They have me itching to plant my own herb garden whenever I have thyme.  Heh heh.

Emily’s Tips for Bold Spring Color

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

My friends, yesterday was such a great day.   Yesterday, I got my hands dirty with some revolutionary new DIY products from RustOleum (will share very soon).  Yesterday, I ate gumbo.  Twice.  Both servings were a little bit spicy and a whole lotta heavenly.  I am now obsessed with recreating that magical flavor at home.  

Yesterday, I walked the streets of Nawlins.  I savored beignets with café au lait.  I walked every cobblestone street in the French Quarter from Decatur to Dauphine.  I visited antique shops and drank a hurricane.  Thankfully I drank the hurricane after I visited the antique shops and not the other way around, or I may have done some serious damage to my bank account.  It was all so fantastic, I barely even noticed it was pouring rain.     

Today, I’m headed home, but here to take the reins is the lovely Emily A. Clark!  I had the pleasure of meeting Emily last November when I visited New York and have followed her blog ever since.  Emily is an interior decorator with her own design business ~ she has amazing taste, and I absolutely love how she uses bold color in fearless ways.  Emily is here to share a few tips on sprucing up your home for spring with intense pops of color.
