Saturday Sparks Link Party 107

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 107!

Each of us have our own unique perspective on what inspires us and makes our heart sing. It is the sharing of that eclectic mix that I find so refreshing each week and gives me pause. 
"One day I undertook a tour through the country, and the diversity and beauties of nature I met with in this charming season, expelled every gloomy and vexatious thought."
 ~ Daniel Boone

Now, lets get this weeks party started!

First up, the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 106.

Watercolor Bookmarks & Book Reviews at Designs by Miss Mandee. A New Year's resolution to read more books finds Mandee fully immersed in the world of reading. In this post, Mandee reviews  the books she has read so far this year and is also offering a free download of some lovely watercolor bookmarks.

Fireplace Planking Reveal at Little Bits of Home. A compromise of where to place the 'big black box' resulted in this lovely planked fireplace. 

Farm Photo Friday at LL Farm. Lori continues her 'Farm Photo Friday' series showing some delightful images she has captured at their farm. 

DIY Painted Mug That Won't Wash Away at Tabler Party of Two. Andrea is sharing a craft project from her oh-so-talented DIL Shandi. In this post, she shows us how she personalized a mug with a paint marker and the steps involved to make it permanent and dishwasher safe.
