Saturday Sparks Link Party 126

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 126!

Another week, another party. I am so looking forward to seeing your latest creative projects.

The start of a new month tells me that we are in the final laps of our Summer here in New Hampshire.    The shades of green will soon be replaced with the vivid colors of Fall. Our lives slow down during the warmer months, and it is a break that we savor more and more each year.

 "Summer afternoon-summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language."
~ Henry James
 Now, lets get this weeks party started.

First up, the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 125.

The Big Kitchen Reveal at Aurora Patina. A long wait is over and Kris is thrilled with her updated kitchen! Her once dark kitchen has been transformed into a bright and happy space. Be sure to visit to see all the glorious details.

Tons of Inspiration from Model Homes in AZ at Little Brags. Christine just got back from a vacation in Arizona and while she was there she toured several different model homes. In this post she shares a montage of inspiration from them.

DIY Spray Painted Lamps at {R&R} at home. Rebecca shows us how she updated some lamps to compliment the colors in her bedroom.

Kitchen Renovation Progress at Calypso in the Country. Shelley shows us the dramatic progress that has happened in her kitchen remodel. This is gonna be one gorgeous kitchen!

Baby Shower Gift - Owl Nursery Prints at Designs by Miss Mandee. How sweet is this collection of 'Owl Prints' that Mandee is offering as a free download!

Simply happy and enjoy! at Shabby Chic and I. Tanja shares her gorgeous dried flower wreath that she made from only the best roses, hydrangeas and buttercups.

Hand Painted Table Transformation at From Evija with Love. Evija shares her entry into 'The Fab Furniture Flipping' contest - a hand painted table that is bursting with color - so fun!

Khasta Kachori with Potato Curry at Rocket Looks. Rita is sharing a popular dish from North India that she describes as "spicy, tangy and hot". It just happens to look delicious too!

Cauliflower Soup at Drugstore Divas. Lisa found a recipe for 'Cauliflower Soup' that turned out delicious and has converted her from the Potato Soup days of her past.

Sugar Cookies Strawberry Pies at Kleinworth & Co. - Gina shows us how making these tempting treats can get a bit messy, but they are totally worth it.

Sweet Potato Hash at Pudding and Boo. Romany stirred away from her usual breakfast with this heart and delicious 'Sweet Potato Hash'.

Grilled Chicken Summer Salad w/Garlic Lime Vinaigrette at Life Love Larson. Andrea created a summer meal for her neighbors who recently welcomed a new baby into their lives. You know they are going to appreciate her caring and thoughtful gift.
