Be Inspired Features and Link Party #149

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back for features and party day!

Elizabeth and Co.

Here in Maryland we had snow all day yesterday. We only ended up with a few inches, but it's a beautiful winter wonderland. For those of you in the middle of the blizzard, be safe out there!

And now on to this week's fabulous features .....

Cassie from Primitive & Proper totally knocked it out of the park with this stunning coastal blue sideboard!



Wendy from Sometimes Twice went with cool shades of aqua for this ombre effect dresser!



Kim from Reposhture Studio used the color island dream on these chairs and I think they certainly live up to the name!



Cynthia from Clockwork Interiors gave this outdated media cabinet a fresh new look with a pop of color and some chalkboard paint!



In need of a little comfort food? You might want to try these chicken pillows from LouLou Girls!



Or maybe you're in the mood for some chicken taco soup served over rice from Angela Betlewicz' Designs!



These soft and chewy gingerbread cookies from Simply Suzanne's At Home are almost too pretty to eat! 



And you will love the soft simplicity of Suzanne's winter decor!

My Winter Mantel On A Snowy Day

We are having a beautiful snow day today!


Not a major storm, just enough to make everything white, soft and oh so peaceful. 
Don't you just love how quiet it is when it's snowing?







My favorite place to watch the snow is from my sunroom. 
There are windows on three sides and the light is always so beautiful. 


This year when I packed up the Christmas decorations, I decided I needed to celebrate winter with a little snowy decor.



 I wanted something really simple and natural.




Remember when I made about a million (only a slight exaggeration) frosty pinecones?


And you can check out my ruffled sheet music wreath tutorial here. I used a combination of pages from different hymnals on this one and it gives a nice variation in color.


I'm really loving the mantel in shades of green, gold and silver. 
It took only minutes to put together with things I already had on hand - the very best way to decorate!




The cotton stems add softness and give the feel of fluffy white snowballs.
And the mercury glass candles add a lovely glow in the evening!




I think I got my wish on this beautiful snowy day!
