Saturday Sparks Link Party 113

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 113!

I am blown away by the amazing projects, ideas, recipes and transformations that are shared each week. The willingness to link up and share your knowledge with others is such a generous and kind gesture. 
"Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see."
~ Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens)
 Now, lets get this weeks party started.

First up, the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 112.

Easy Furniture Update at Karen's Up on The Hill. In this post, Karen shares a less expensive chalk paint alternative and shows us the pretty results on a table she updated. The newly painted piece has transformed this little corner into a bright and welcoming space.

A Stenciled Drexel Dresser and Whitewashed Mirror at Clockwork Interiors. Cynthia shows us a couple of earlier pieces that she refreshed with stenciling and paint and shares 3 valuable lessons she learned while working on this mirror and dresser.

DIY Barn Door in Our Master Bedroom at Seeking Lavender Lane. Deb takes her barn door obsession to the next level with this fabulous closet door. In this post, she shares the 411 on how to create, paint and hang the character filled door.

Pretty as a Picture at Ivy & Elephants. Paula wanted to decorate a wall in her bedroom and found some inspiration on Pinterest, which quickly led her down the path to create this creative 'Ikea Hack' gallery wall.

Flower Crown Tutorial at Ash and Crafts. Seek and find your inner flower child with Ashely as she shares a tutorial to re-create this oh-so-pretty 'Flower Crown'.

Creamy Tomato Soup at Lemon & Lime Thyme. Elisa is sharing a recipe for 'Creamy Tomato Soup' that she describes as quick, easy and the "best ever tomato soup". 

Hibiscus Honey Mint Julep at Honey and Birch. Jenny is sharing what she describes as "the perfect mint julep" recipe. She says the most important thing is to use the proper liquor and always use the freshest ingredients.

Smoked Turkey, Cherry and Feta Salad with Vinaigrette at Yesterfood. Joy shares a salad recipe that includes smoked turkey, cherries and feta that sounds amazing.

Make Waffles from Cheerios at MomDot. Trisha is thinking outside the box to create healthy foods that her fussy 3 year old will eat and enjoy, such as this recipe for Waffles made from heart healthy Cheerios.
