These are a few of my favorite things - (no.2)

***Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens***
***Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens***

I would like to help these amazing people showcase their talents by sharing what has blown me away. 

If you are as impressed and I am, please visit the blogs of these talented ladies and tell them I sent you. 
I hope you enjoy what I have found.

1. I came across this amazing yellow desk and immediately got inspiration for a piece that I have been dying to complete. Lora Leis at Leisure Living did an amazing job on this piece.  I love the yellow with the gray fabric. 

2. This particular project was one of my "must dos" this winter. However, the move has placed several things on hold. I just love how rustic and simple this is. A Salvaged Wood Tree  from Three Pixie Lane is definitely on my list for next year. My husband will be happy to hear I have a vision for that barn wood in the garage.

3. I found this amazing buffet from The Midwest Cottage. I love the "messy" mix of colors. I love the swirling of the paint strokes. I love the crazy distressing. If you are a person who like things with clean lines, this one is probably driving you nuts. However, I am not that kind of person. This one speaks to me. :)

4. This is from one of my favorite blogger friends, Kim at A Brush of Whimsy.  I love how this once plain piece now has life and character. I also love the unexpected dark top with the popular blue and white combination. Kim always does amazing things but this one is my favorite. It actually inspired one of my pieces.

5. Since I shared Kim's piece, I might as well share the piece she inspired.  I was having a particularly hard time with this piece. It was in GREAT shape but didn't have a ton of character. Kim's inspiration helped me give it character.
