Hello all, it’s the last ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ for the year!  We’ll be taking a break until next year but the series will be back again in January.  My fellow scout Amanda and I rounded up some favorite picks from around the web, enjoy these inspiring projects!

There’s a pretty new laundry room over at Rambling Renovators complete with a glass tile backsplash and stainless steel countertops!

The folks over at Panyl used their product to mimic the West Elm patchwork dresser, and the outcome is impressive!

Friday Finds

December 7th, 2012

Hello and happy weekend friends!  Thanks so much to all of the participants in the Craft Link Party, you amaze me!  There are 600+ holiday projects to explore so I encourage you to hop around and get inspired!

I was out of town this week in Atlanta for a quick trip so this week’s Friday Finds is a short one, not too many links today.  I’m still recovering from several nights of very little sleep so I’m happy to spend a quiet weekend at home and decorate our Christmas tree, perhaps do some local shopping too.  Here are a few interesting links I came across this week, enjoy.

Perhaps you’ve heard that Emerald was announced as Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2013, following what’s been hot in fashion.  Are you a fan of this jewel tone?
