Saturday Sparks Link Party 27

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 27!  
Another week, another fun party! I was so inspired going through all the wonderful links from last weeks party. Your creative ideas never cease to amaze me!
Now, onto the fabulous features from Saturday Sparks 26.
Cottage from Shabby Story. Lynn and her husband built this charming Garden Shed using recycled materials and a keen imagination. The zinc roof, leaded windows and trim details give this sweet building a vintage shabby feel that just draws you in and says 'Welcome'.
Show Off - Peeking Thru The Sunflowers from A Stroll Thru Life. Continuing with her Show Off & Inspire Series, Marty features Des's lovely blog - Peeking Thru The Sunflowers.  Des shares the adventures of restoring their 1870 former schoolhouse into a beautiful home.
Vintage Waterfall Table from The North End Loft. Laurel's yard sale find is given a fresh new look with homemade chalk paint and some gentle distressing. Loving the soft hues she chose for this pretty little side table.
 Craft Closet Make Over from The Vintage Farmhouse. Nicki decided the time had come to organize her craft closet. She managed to create a lovely and functional space with a fresh coat of paint, some wallpaper and a mix of containers.
Cursive Handwriting Printables from Kleinworth & Co. -  Did you know that most schools do not teach cursive writing anymore? I was made aware of this by a retired teacher and so, I was more than happy to see this post from Gina. She has created some Cursive Handwriting Printable Practice Sheets for you to download and share.
 Crunchy Panko Crusted Cod from My Sweet Mission. Heather shares this delicious recipe for fish fillets. She says her "simple steps will ensure your fish will turn out tender in the center and crispy on the outside". Sounds like a win-win to me!
And lastly, a recap of my share from the party - Factory Cart Coffee Table.  My husband may have questioned my sanity when I dragged home an old dilapidated mill cart, but he supported my vision and helped me to transform the old gal into a unique coffee table for our family room.

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 26!  
Another week and another party has come and gone. It is such a treat to go through the links and see what you all have been working on.
Now, onto the fabulous features from Saturday Sparks 25.
Front Porch Transformation from Glass Slipper Restorations. Cindy shows us her front porch transformation. The once humble porch is now refreshed and inviting to all who enter.
Slow-Cooker Gluten Free Garlic Bread from Kleinworth & Co. - The heat of summer wouldn't stop Gina from having fresh bread. She came up with this clever recipe using the Crock Pot to make this mouth-watering Garlic Bread.
 A New Man In The House from A Stroll Thru Life. A recent Goodwill find has made its way into Marty's home and heart. Nothing beats a unique decor item to add character to a home.
 Quick and Easy Italian Pasta Salad from Life on Lakeshore Drive. Kathy shares her recipe for a simple and tasty pasta salad that has become a family favorite.
Chippy Dresser with Hinged Front from Denise...On A Whim. A rummage sale dresser is given an update with some chippy paint. I love that Denise had no fear of a once broken drawer and converted it into a hinged drop front.
Sock Knitting Bag from Will Cook For Shoes.  Trina shows us the steps to make this cute divided bag, perfect for her knitting projects.
And lastly, a recap of my share from the party - Linen and Lace Pincushion Trio. This little set remains one of my favorites, as some of the laces were remnants from things I had sewn for my children when they were just babies. Reflections of a time gone by....
