Saturday Sparks Link Party 42

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 42!
The Christmas spirt was in full force at last weeks party.
Now, onto the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 41.
DIY Metal Salvage Marquee Letters from Just A Little Creativity. Molly's love for vintage Christmas decor had her creating these wonderful Faux Metal Marquis Letters and she shares all her steps along the way.
DIY Christmas Snowflake Ornament from The Crafty Blog Stalker. A Handmade Christmas Ornament Exchange had Katie making these pretty snowflake ornaments and she shares a tutorial on just how she did it.
Snowman Kit from Making Your Sustainable Life. Vickie shows us how to make a fun and easy Snowman Kit. This is perfect timing for us here in New Hampshire, as we are expecting a big snowstorm tonight.
Christmas Past from Artsy VaVa. A review of her blog stats shows Artsy VaVa that some of her most popular Christmas posts are from past Christmas's. Delightful never goes out of style, so I can see why these posts continue to be a favorite.
 A Handmade Christmas - Pillows from Vintage, Paint and more... - Cathy continues with her series 'A Handmade Christmas' with this post featuring some of her pretty 'Pillows'.

Rusty Junk Christmas Tree from Glass Slipper Restorations. Cindy had fun creating this unique Christmas Tree using some rusty bed springs and other assorted materials.

8 Reasons Someone Envies You from Darlene Nemeth. Giving pause to reflect on the blessings in our lives, Darlene shares '8 Reasons Someone Envies You'.

Homemade Christmas Gifts, Random Acts of Kindness from Kleinworth & Co. - Gina's husband is a firefighter, so she knows the meaning of sacrifice. She came up with this sweet idea for a goodie container to show her appreciation and say 'thank-you' to those who give so much.
 Cornmeal Stars with Orange Glaze from Yesterfood. Joy says this recipe is a "lovely cross between a sugar cookie and shortbread".  They look and sound delicious to me.

I will leave you with this fun Christmas cartoon and the hope that you are filled with the Christmas spirit.
