Potpourri Party #13 & a Winner

Hi  Everyone!  So sorry the Potpourri Party is late this week:  the explanation is here.   I appreciate your kind  condolences.  Your   words, prayers  and encouragements are a comfort.

Even though it’s a bit late,  and it is “black Friday” let’s have so fun and share our  ideas!

My sisters and I recently met for a Sister Weekend in Salado.   Here is a little inspiration for you to use for those upcoming Blogger’s Block Party!

Now for a sampling of the  fabulous inspiration from last week.  

 Who knew bed-springs could be so beautiful?
Finding Secret Treasures made  rusty bed springs 
into amazing ornaments for her fabulous mantel!

If you need ideas for decorating your front door a and porch,

Gail at Fathfulness Farm gives us her recipe for
Amazingly Awesome Dinner Rolls!

Audrey at Elegant Economies gives us a look at her dining nook at her  cottage in the woods!

Take a look at the beautiful ,  easy  to make ornaments that 

Sarah at Renewed Upon a Dream created a twig ornament inspired by Pottery Barn.

Debbie at Confessions of a Plate Addict creates 
a stunning  Tablescape!

My heart just breaks for you today. ♥ I will pray that you continue to find comfort in Him knowing that you'll see both of your parents someday. Until then, lay back in the arms of our loving Savior for peace and comfort.
