Saturday Sparks Link Party 55

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 55!
Spring has arrived and with it a renewed energy. It seems that people are smiling more and taking the time to stop and savor the moment, which is always a good thing.  Last weeks party had many of you welcoming Spring.
Now, onto the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 54.
Spring Mantel at Vintage, Paint and More.  Cathy shares her pretty Spring mantel with pops of yellow and blue.

Canvas Banners at D.D.'s Cottage and Design. Darrielle shows us how she added her personal touch to some simple canvas flags for a lovely Spring banner.

 A Day In The Life of a Furniture Painter at Simply Vintageous by Suzan. Painting furniture is much more involved than you may think, as Suzan explains in this post.
Starting Plants in Toilet Paper Rolls at Elizabeth Joan Designs.  Emily shares a clever way to make your own starter plants using toilet paper rolls.

DIY Natural Nail Soak at Robyn's View. Robyn shares a recipe for a hand and nail soak that uses a few simple ingredients that will do wonders for you.

DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub Bars at Happy Mothering. I have never made homemade soaps, but it is on my 'must do' list and this tutorial for Peppermint Sugar Scrub Bars sounds like a great one.

Ballard Designs French Bunny Pillow DIY at Chantilly Charm. Margaret combined her love for Spring and Bunnies to create this sweet pillow and shares the 411 on how she did it.

Egg and Roasted Veggie Sandwich at Hello Little Home. Ginnie loves a good breakfast sandwich and came up with this delicious version with Roasted Veggies that sounds like the perfect way to start your day.

Caramel Delight Cake at Southern Distinctions. Brandyn describes this cake as a "sinfully sweet treat". It sounds and looks like a wonderful indulgence to me.

Bailey's Pound Cake at Mom Foodie. Robin has come up with this recipe for  pound cake featuring Bailey's Irish Creme as the main attraction.
 Peanut Butter Nutella Cookies at Kleinworth & Co. - The combination of peanut butter cookies and nutella sounds like a match made in heaven and Gina says that these cookies are just that - heaven!
Hippity Hoppity Bunny Cupcakes at Two Kids and a Coupon. Cooking with kids can be such fun and these oh-so-cute bunny cupcakes are sure to be a big hit.
And lastly, a recap of my share from the party - Asiago Basil Focaccia. I have been trying out different flavor combinations for Focaccia bread and this recipe is my favorite so far.
