Link Love No. 55!

They were such fun links to go through! I have noticed many recipes including some salad recipes. I bet they are perfect for the get togethers during the summer too! Do you have any fun plans for the Memorial Day weekend? Whatever is going on in your life, I hope it is good.

I have been spending nice quality time with my family since Friday night. We are also planning to work on our garden on Monday. The funny thing is, sometimes kids enjoy the most plain, simplest things rather than big vacations. They are so looking forward to going to the nursery to pick out some plants for our garden on Monday. I am planning to have a picnic in our backyard after the yard work with some sandwiches and lemonade (I haven't told this to the kids yet... who knows, mommy changes her mind and rather go through a drive-thru). I know they would like that.

It was hard to choose only five from so many wonderful projects... but here are the link loves for this week.

A belt such as this would add such an effect to a dress. Me Sew Crazy shared this charming window belt. This technique is often used for quilt making, but I never thought about using it like this. Very unique and pretty!

Jengerbread Creation shared this tutorial on how to make this beautiful necklace. Her step by step tutorial is very easy to understand. You could do two or three different types of pearls like she did or just use one type of pearl to make a necklace. This would be a great way (and inexpensive way) to spice up your summer wardrobe!

There are so many birthday party themes out there... grey luster girl used a "circus" theme and came up with a really fun and cute birthday party for her niece. Please go check out her blog to see all the pictures she posted, you will know what I mean. :)

Oh, my heavens. I LOVE this bracelet! This Anthro inspired bracelet was created by Flamingo Toes. Even though this is a "knock off" project, it still takes talent to coordinate everything. I think her use of colors and balance between the objects are just superb. Great job! I need (want) one like this for this summer. :)

When I saw the picture, I seriously fell in love with this! Acu's Stiletto Shoes, and Pretty Pink Tutus shared this one of a kind jewelry holder. She used a vintage candelabrum her grandma gave to her. With spray paint, and a little bit of imagination, she found another use for the candelabra. Simply gorgeous!

I posted all the quilt market and meet up pictures last week. I will be posting some of my creations this week. Make sure to come back to see what I have been working on! :)
