Creative Ways Link Party #13 and Features

Hi Friends! Welcome to this week's Creative Ways Link Party! Have you had a good week? Mine seemed to have flown surprise there, right? With all the shuttling around of kiddos, some minor but slightly irritating computer issues, and all around lack of creative mojo, I've gone the week without posting anything. I have been trying to spend more time with the kiddos without feeling like I needed to get a post together. Before long, school will start and I will be needing to squeeze in blogging between teaching them and attempting to keep the house running. For now, I've just given myself a bit of grace in the posting schedule. I hope you don't give up on me. I'll get back to posting more regularly before too long...I promise. I also hope you are enjoying this "slower" time of year and spending time with those you love!

Well, I believe you stopped by here for a party! Let's get to it... right after I show you the posts that tickled my fancy from last week's party!

Clockwise from Top Left:

Metallic Polka Dot Vase by House on the Way
(Such an easy way to add whimsy and elegance to a plain glass vase!)
Caramel-Filled Triple Chocolate Brownies with Toasted Pecans by Oh Mrs. Tucker!
(I am never one to shy away from brownies...that being said...I truly believe I am in love with these.)
$10 Upcycle: Utility Shelf to Potting Stand by My Thrift Store Addiction
(I love how this utilitarian shelf was turned into a bright and cheery spot, perfect for plants.)
French Tarragon Chicken by Make Mine Lemon
(For such a beautiful and fancy dish, this chicken actually looks pretty simple to make...and delicious too.)
DIY Drop Cloth Bench for the Master Bedroom by Our Home Away From Home
(Maria Elena is truly a master with Drop Cloth! This bench is just one of her many beautiful projects.)
Oreo Cookies Torte by Culinary Flavors
(Who knew Oreos could be so beautiful? This torte looks both gorgeous and delicious!)
