Creative Ways Link Party #53 and Features

Happy wet and rainy Wednesday to you! I'm not sure what the weather is like where you are, but we're kind of feeling like we need to start building an ark! I do love me some rainy days, but even I am getting a little tired of the daily showers and storms... especially the thunderstorms. I'm not what you'd call an outdoorsy person, but it does put a damper on my homebody mood to open the blinds to gray skies day after day. I know in the dog days of summer I will regret my lamenting. Okay, enough about my gloomy mood. You all came here to party! Maybe seeing all the wonderful posts you share here at the Creative Ways Link Party will lift my spirits! It really does thrill my heart to see you here each week.

Before we see what you've been working on, let's take a look at the features I chose from last week's party...

Simply Suzanne's at Home brought this beautiful and delicious Chicken Salad with Citrus Pepper Dressing to the party. I love the addition of the pansies... it adds that special touch!
I'm loving this Upcycled Faucet Handle Towel Rack by Refresh Living. What a unique piece for the bathroom! I could see it in a mudroom or at a lake house too!

This Toll House Crumbcake by Colletta's Kitchen Sink is seriously making me drool! I'd love to have a pan of this right now... to help with the rainy day blues ;-)

Farmhouse 40 shared her 4 Quick Tips for a Spring Vignette. Love the layering and the pretty, bright colors! 

These Grilled Honey & Lemon Chicken Kabobs by Bitz n Giggles look like the perfect late spring dinner. The combo of honey and lemon with chicken sounds divine!  

Spot of Tea Designs shared this adorable Under the Sea Quiet Book that she made for her darling daughter. While I don't have any littles at home anymore, I thought this would make a super gift for baby showers and birthday parties.

Speaking of parties, who wouldn't love to get a pretty gift like this? I love, love, love these Tissue Paper Flowers by One Little Project. It's amazing how much they dress up a simple package. 

If you missed these wonderful posts, be sure to click through their links to check them out!
