My Shabby Chic Chair Affair at Poppy View. Poppy has a love for distressed furniture, but her chairs were looking a bit too shabby for her taste. A lovely shade of blue combined with some love and attention have given her chairs a fresh new look.
A Restful Afternoon in the Garden at Rosemary and Thyme. After a busy weekend, Janet spent her Sunday afternoon in the garden for tea and a delicious lunch with her husband.
Sofa Table Makeover at Delusions of Ingenuity. It may have taken Andi 15 long years to give this Sofa Table a redo, but the end result was well worth the wait.
Junk Yard Step Chair Redo at Redo It Yourself Inspirations. This step chair had certainly seen better days, but Robin saw it's potential. Be sure to visit her site to see the fabulous 'After' transformation. 
Bohemian Bookmarks at Designs By Miss Mandee. Just in time for your Summer reading, Mandee is sharing a free download for these pretty Bohemian Bookmarks.
Tropical Cream Slushie at Kleinworth & Co. - Hot Summer days has Gina craving tropical drinks and so she came up with this thirst quenching slushy that's sure to hit the spot.

Triple Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls at Some of This and That. Jamie is caving in to her chocolate addiction and her husbands sweet tooth with these Triple Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls.

Saturday Sparks Link Party 72

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 72!
Another week to spread the love and show off your latest inspiring posts. 
Another week to celebrate the creative sparks of others.
Now, onto the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 71.

Needle Felting Fun at Artistic Endeavors 101. Brooke shows off her first 3-D needle felting project and shares some tips for beginners. I am fascinated with needle felting and have collected quite a bit of inspiration on my Needle Felting Board on Pinterest. This delightful little guy looks like a great starting option.

Pattern Hack:  Double Ruffle Capris at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom. Jamie shares a free pattern and tutorial for these oh-so-cute Double Ruffle Capris pants. I imagine any little girl would love to have a pair of these - so fun!
Mobile Mud Kitchen at Kids Activities Blog. The simplest ideas are sometimes the best ideas such as this Mobile Mud Kitchen from Jackie. Mud pies and make believe - one of life's simple pleasures!
Table 2 with Instructions at My Do-it-yourself. Uwe shares his repurposed table made from discarded fruit crates. Love the center space feature for the potted plant.
A Vintage Wedding Dress for Africa at My Sweet Mission. Heather has passed along her vintage wedding dress with the hope that it will bring the joy and happiness she felt so many years ago to many other women.  She explains all the details in this post.
What have you been chewing on lately? at An Extraordinary Day. Diane shares a thought provoking post and challenges us to join her in 'training'.
Wrapping Gifts with Baby's Breath at T-Shirt & Jeans. Nicki shows us how she wraps gifts with plain, natural packaging and bits of baby's breath for a soft, romantic look.
Almost Sourdough at Yesterfood. Joy shares a mock sourdough bread recipe that does not require a starter.  She describes the finished bread as "a tender, hearty, pleasantly chewy loaf".  We love our homemade bread around here, so I just may have to give this recipe a try.
Strawberry Poke Cake at Swanky Recipes. Jessica shares a yummy recipe for Strawberry Poke Cake just in time for strawberry season.

Utica Greens Recipe at Upstate Ramblings. Anne received some fresh escarole in her CSA box and instantly knew she would be making 'Utica Greens', a traditional recipe from Upstate New York.
Sweet Sprinkles Popcorn at Eliza Ellis. Eliza threw a last minute party and shares a simple sweet and salty popcorn recipe that was a big hit with the kids.

Saturday Sparks Link Party 71 and Updates

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 71!
I started this party to provide a gathering place for people to share their latest inspiring posts.
With that thought in mind, I have added to the list of suggested category ideas to include 'Photography' and 'Ponderings'. Whether through words, pictures or both, we all have stories to tell and I hope this will encourage you to share some of yours. 
Of course, all of the other categories are still joyously welcomed.
Now, onto the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 70.
Paint Your Old Buckets at Little Brags. Christine has a thing for old buckets and shows us how she dressed them up a bit with some paint. Love the polkadots! 
Easy Summer Decorating on the Mantel at Chateau Chic. Mary Alice shares her tips for easy summer decor with her pretty Summer Mantel using vintage objects and a botanical theme.
Outdoor Makeover Challenge:  Big Reveal at Making It In the Mountains. Kristi participated in an Outdoor Makeover Challenge and transformed her deck into a wonderful outdoor gathering space with a minimal budget and some great DIY projects.
$30 Kitchen Island at Mom In Music City. Sabine wanted a kitchen island, but got sticker shock at the high prices. Using the fine art of 'making do', she made herself one for a mere $30. Love the rustic feel to it and the stain and paint combination.
DIY Chalkboard for My Entryway Wall at Seeking Lavender Lane. Deb shows us her quick and easy DIY Chalkboard that she say took only an hour to complete. Another simple idea with a big impact - got to love it!
Lined Glasses Case at It's Organized. Jackie shares a step-by-step sewing tutorial on how to make this pretty and useful eyeglass case.
Roast Chicken on Wild Mushroom Sticky Rice Risotto at The Woks of Life. Sarah shares her idea for a Risotto replacement that is equally delicious, but with much less effort in this savory recipe.

Butter Cookies with Cherry, Raspberry and Chocolate at Something Sweet. Winnie shares a yummy recipe for these Butter Cookies that is sure to satisfy that sweet tooth.

Copy-Cat Outshine Strawberry Popsicle Recipe at The Pin Junkie. Bonnie shares her recipe for a Strawberry Fruit Bar that makes a perfect treat on a hot Summer day.

Blueberry Cobbler Bars at Kleinworth & Co. - Recipes that include blueberries rank very high on my scale and Gina is getting my vote once again with these delectable bars.
And finally, a recap of my share from the party - Unexpected Guests. In this post, I share about a surprise visit we received from some of God's creatures and the parting gifts they left us.
