Swing into Spring - It's a Party - #61

Welcome to this week's Swing into Spring party.  
Each and every week the party grows and it is always filled with wonderful ideas and inspiration.
You are all so very talented.
Here are this week's features:


  Our Pinteresting Family gives a wonderful tutorial on how to recover a plain lampshade with the fabric of your choice.  I happen to LOVE the fabric they used. 
 I must have a lampshade somewhere in the house I can do this to.
Thrifty Inspirations shares a wonderful tutorial on how to make no sew faux roman shades.
What an awesome project.
I just had to share this GORGEOUS armoire that French Country Cottage scored on Craigslist a while back.  She bought it as part of a set (with two mirrors, a six drawer dresser, two night stands and the armoire...all for only $400).  She shows this piece in detail if you pop over to check it out.


This beautiful Mackenzie-Childs knockoff was created by Pandora's Box from an end table 
she bought for $5.  I am super impressed!!

Meg and Mums transformed a dresser into this masterpiece.
 Hope you will stop by her blog and check out all the details.


Adventures of a DIY Dork gives a great tutorial on how to create a custom memo board for a total cost of less than $11!  That's my kind of project.
Living Rich on Less shares a great tutorial on how to create your own custom camera strap cover.
The possibilities are endless!


Joyful Homemaking shares an easy chicken pot pie recipe.
With only five ingredients, it's the perfect mid-week meal.
I'm always looking for new and unique desserts.  Mostly Foods and Crafts
shared her recipe for coconut cake topped with toasted coconut.

If you were featured, please grab an "I've Been Featured" button (you can now find my buttons by clicking on the buttons tab right under my header).  Now let's get started with this week's party.  I can't wait to see what you have been up to.  Link up anything you have been working on...home decor, sewing, crafts, organizing, baking, recipes etc.   I will keep this link open through Friday.

A few rules:
1.  Please become a follower (if you already follow me on Google, I would love for you to follow me on Linky Followers as well).  

2.  Please grab my party button above and display it either on your sidebar or somewhere in your post.  This way word can spread about the party.  The more people at the party, the more fun we will have.

3.  Please enter the link to your actual post, not just a link to your main blog page.

4. Please visit others who have linked up.   Everyone works hard on their projects and blogs...let's show each other some love by visiting each other.  Let's have some fun and hopefully make a few new friends along the way.

Ok...Let's Party

Hi Judy, why did I not know you had this link party? I can't believe I have been missing out. lol! It sounded like you wanted a Spring post, so I linked a little bit older one. Hope that's o.k. I will add your button to my side bar.
