Good day, all, how’s your fall?  This morning, Rhoda and I off to the Antique Faire (with a chance of rain, yikes) so we’ll see how far we get.  We’re also working on two mantels this afternoon!  Meanwhile, let’s take a peek at more inspiring projects from this week.

Greetings all, so happy to be featuring some very inspirational posts and projects today!  I took a chance when I started this ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ series many months ago, and I have to say looking back I’m so glad I did.  There is so much ingenuity and creativity out there that and I love sharing my finds with you.  Again this week I teamed up with Amanda, and together we bring you our favorite picks, enjoy!
