Last Week, Jen From Harrison Home gave RE-invented style The Liebster Award, a recognition from a fellow blogger that a smallish (usually new) blog is worth following. To me, it is like the blog world version of TV Guide The Best Show on TV you are not watching issue which brings attention to quality material that deserves a wider audience. Jen is very creative so it is a big compliment that she likes our blog.
|Jen's hallway from her BEFORE & AFTER PROJECT . She noticed she hadn't decorated the space yet, so she quickly changed that.|
|AFTER. Jen used white paint to add horizontal stripes and a lot of visual interest to the hallway. I love this project and had been thinking of doing horizontal stripes somewhere in our new house so I was really excited when I saw her post. But, it was Jen's can-do attitude evident in her faux fireplace project that got us to follow her. You can check that out HERE|
|AT NANN'S TABLE is a wonderful blog about entertaining and home decor. Nann is very sweet and her recipes are different than the ones I normally see. I especially enjoyed her 12 Days of Christmas series where she made different foods to represent each song lyric. Above are her TWO TURTLE DOVES croutons on a salad bed which you can see HERE. Wouldn't they be adorable as love birds with a heart instead of a ribbon for Valentine's Dinner or a bridal shower? You should also check out her amazing Swan Cream Puffs on a Chocolate Lake HERE They are incredible! Actually, just check out her whole blog. :)|
|SO MANY TABLES by Denise focuses mostly on tablescapes, but these are *NOT* your Party Store standard themes. Above is her Brown Derby Oscars Viewing Party setting. She made the black chair covers with the movie star names and copied Brown Derby caricatures to cover sports pictures in their bar area. There are many little details to love in this setting which you can see HERE There are only 42 entries on the site since 2010 so she doesn't post a lot, but whatever she posts has been totally original. Check out the ANSEL ADAMS TABLE HERE or her Abe Lincoln Table HERE. She also has really cool crafts like the 5 Generations of Women's Hands Craft you can see HERE I've never interacted with Denise (my stalkerish gushing comments may have made her shy to reply back, since she has no way of knowing I'm relatively sane and harmless) so I hope this is okay to post, but I had to share how excited I am by her ideas. If you like Between Naps on the Porch and A Stroll Thru Time, then you should absolutely follow So Many Tables.|
|CRAFTY MISCHIEF BY BRITTANY is a wonderful blog by a young mother who comes up with a lot of family projects and recipes. If you like Family Fun magazine and blogs like Tatertots and Jello then you will enjoy this blog. If I could, I would friend match make Brittany with Christy from Wallace Family Blog because they remind me so much of each other. They have that strong energy that young creative mothers have. They both recently came up with adorable party ideas for their kids' parties and did a lot of the ideas themselves.|
|WALLACE FAMILY BLOG as I mention above, has featured a lot of fun kids ideas, including the Minnie Mouse party invitations above that Christy designed and made. You can check those out HERE Christy is a 1st grade teacher so you know she is organized and has tons of creativity. For the Family Fun and Tatertots and Jello crowd, Christy's blog along with Brittany's blog plugged above, are great additions.|
|UNCLUTTERED LIFESTYLE is a DIY and home organization blog that runs a series I enjoy very much called Unclutter it Thursday. If you are in need of organization help as I am, it is great because it has weekly tips on tools to use and inexpensive ways to keep (or get) your household in order. A post on Pantry Organizing Tools is HERE The above picture is from an entry on organizing a spice cabinet which you can see HERE|
