Saturday Sparks Link Party 116

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 116!

Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of the summer season here in New Hampshire and the tourists come in droves to visit our beautiful state. We are well versed in the beauty that surrounds us, but witnessing the deluge of so many converging upon us serves as a reminder as to how truly blessed we are. 
"Keep your eyes open to your mercies. The man who forgets to be thankful has fallen asleep in life."
~ Robert Louis Stevenson
 Now, lets get this weeks party started.

First up, the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 115.

Hexagon Wall Planter at Love Create Celebrate. Linda participated in a 'Home Depot Gift Challenge' and is sharing a tutorial on how to recreate this fabulous 'Hexagon Wall Planter'.

DIY Art {& Ikea} at Simply Suzan. Suzan found the cutest set of black iron planters and added her own spin to them, by placing them inside a frame backed with fence boards. Such a fun idea!

Branch Gallery at Nur noch. Ronja had some wall space to play with and came up with a cool idea for a 'Branch Gallery'. The simple, clean look is calling out to me.

Foyer Refresh at CD's Country Living. CD shows us her newly transformed Foyer with its gorgeous updated staircase and rustic gallery wall.

Brimfield Antique Show {aka Eye Candy} at While I Linger. The Brimfield Antique Show is a very popular yearly event in Massachusetts.  Jolena was able to spend a day there and shows us some of the vintage treasures she found on display.

Strawberry Wonton Cups at Best of Long Island and Central Florida. Linda shares a tasty appetizer  recipe combining fresh strawberries and basil - you know it's going to be good!

Jalapeno Cheddar Sour Cream Biscuits at Jenn's Random Scraps. Jenn took her best biscuit recipe and kicked it up a notch by adding in a couple of flavor boosting ingredients.
