Saturday Sparks Link Party 110

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 110!

Todays party may be a bit late, but I have a good excuse....
As much as I love winter, I was more than ready for the arrival of Spring. Much like a guest who overstays their welcome, this past winter lingered on far too long. Luckily for us, the weather here in New England changes on a dime and such was the case today. 
So, my excuse for being late to the party....
I have been basking in our first full day of warmer temperatures and savoring the bright sun filled sky that seemed to have forgotten about us for a spell. It's amazing how much a beautiful day can lift your spirit.

 Now, lets get this weeks party started.

First up, the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 109.

Farmhouse Style Table Makeover for $20 at Noting Grace. Jen's dining room table wasn't working in her home, so she took the time and effort to make it what she wanted. In this post, she shares her trials, tribulations and gorgeous end results.

DIY Plank Top Dresser at Karens Up on the Hill. A cold winter found Karen in need of a place to store all her sweaters. Her solution was an inexpensive Ikea dresser that she revamped with some paint and a DIY plank top.

Second Baby Announcement at Love Create Celebrate. Linda shares some exciting news with the help of her little girl Ellie and a sweet DIY Baby Announcement.

Simple Southern Sunday No. 23 at Everyday Living. Pam shows us the beauty of Spring in her area, including this adorable Easter photo of her favorite little boy 'Braden' and ponders how the splendors of the season may symbolize the renewal of a life with Christ.

Onesie Cupcakes at Ash and Crafts. Ashley was inspired by another bloggers 'Bouquet of Onesies', and needed a gift for an upcoming baby shower. In this post, she shows how she created these oh-so-cute 'Onesie Cupcakes'.

Chain Piecing Half Square Triangles at From My Carolina Home. Half Square Triangles aka as HST's are used in many different quilt patterns and there are several ways to create them. In this post, Carole shares a quick chain piecing method that allows you to sew several HST's in one sweep.

DIY Book Jackets at Vintage, Paint and More... - Like so many of us, Cathy likes to use books in her decor. In this post, she shares how she customizes them with simple covers and different embellishments to compliment any style.

Carrot Pancakes at All She Cooks. Jessica shares a make ahead recipe for healthier pancakes using nutrient rich carrots. Sounds like a great way to start a day!
