Weekly Wow's

Happy Saturday, good for you making it through another week. My wow's this week are a bit random just like the weather as been. You may have seen here that I am not the biggest fan of Winter and the jacket- no jacket thing has to change.  Spring like one day, sleet the next. I actually got some poison ivy on my hands and arms while doing some outdoor yard work last weekend. Don't know about you but I thought when a plant is dormant, it's dormant. 
But....not poison ivy, just ask my arms.

Here's a few wow's to get you inspired.

Dimples and Tangles completely transforms her china cabinet into a Green goddess and you will want to see how she created some of the knobs. Amazing!
City Farmhouse shares a "simple" pleated slipcover for her ottoman.
Simplicity in the South  shares a tutorial on how to make this lovely driftwood heart. This is so pretty.
Our Prairie Home Blog shares her daughters "grown up" room and how she created it on a budget. It's a  beautiful transformation.

In case you missed it this week, you can click here for a chance to win a $1000 visa gift card and get a dance lesson while you are there. I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. 
See you next week, hopefully I am not still itching!

Grateful for~
The chance to meet up with 2 wonderful friends today, Kim from Savvy Southern Style and Shirley from Housepitality Designs and we are heading to Rhoda's from Southern Hospitality today.
 Should be a great day.

  16. I love your blog. And I can get PI just looking at it. There are a couple good remedies out there that might help you--one is Burt's Bees Poison Ivy Soap--I have a stash of it and it gets the oil off your hands and stops the itching. If you have a natural foods store nearby see if they have a Jewelweed salve or astringent; it's nature's antidote to PI; it will soothe your itching and dry it up. Drugstore remedies are Tech-NU and there's a powder called Domboro (the pharmacist will find it for you in the store) that you put in water and then you can soak gauze or a handtowel and put it on the itch. Sorry if I sound too directive, but I got itchy just reading your post LOL.
