Saturday Sparks Link Party 34

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 34!
The foliage is near peak here in New Hampshire and I am enjoying the amazing mix of colors.  Last weeks party was another wonderful mix - a mix of beautiful inspiration.
Now, onto the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 33.
 How To Make Velvet Pumpkins from Celebrate Creativity. Lisa has a wonderful step-by-step tutorial showing how to make these gorgeous velvet pumpkins.  The rich and vibrant shades of the velvet make a perfect fall display.
Kitchen Redo Update from Salmagundi. Sally shares the transformation of her kitchen in this post. Love all the choices she made for her refreshed 2013 kitchen.

Tribal Jacket from One of a Kind. Kiana was inspired by a picture of a jacket but, the high price was not inspiring her. A trip to the fabric store and the discovery of a wonderful tribal print was the motivation for creating this fabulous jacket.

Baby Burp Cloth Tutorial from Suburbs Mama. With a baby on the way, Rita was in need of some burp cloths and shares a tutorial on how she made these cute and much needed cloths.

Dish Garden from Ivy and Elephants. Patti created an indoor herb garden using an antique spool cabinet and vintage ironstone. Such a pretty way to repurpose!

 Leaf Coasters from Joys Jots, Shots and Whatnots. Using upholstery and curtain samples,  Joy sewed up a stack of Leaf coasters detailing them with free motion stitching.

Fall Porch from Little Brags. Christine shows us her Fall porch. She has the cutest ideas, starting with these sweet hanging pumpkins.

Fettuccine with Tuna, Fresh Herbs & Tomatoes from Simply Fresh Dinners.  Robyn has a delicious recipe for a quick and healthy meal that she says can be easily adapted with a variety of different ingredients.
Pumpkin Roll from This is Happiness. Becky has a delicious Pumpkin Roll recipe that is perfect for the Fall season.
An Apple Rose Tart and a Love Story from the Novice Gardener. Angie shares her recipe for an Apple Rose Tart that is almost too beautiful to eat.
And lastly, a recap of my share from the party - Fall Mantel 2013.  My original idea of how I would dress our mantel for Fall evolved as I created the vignettes. In the process, I discovered that change is sometimes good.
