Time Travel Thursday #93 & Talented Time Travelers #92


"We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories.
Some take us forward, they're called dreams."
~Jeremy Irons~


Welcome to the 93rd Time Travel Thursday linky party at The Brambleberry Cottage!

Are you ready to share your fondest memories, grandest dreams,
and most creative projects? Great!

First, let's see what some of our
talented time travelers shared at last week's party.


We've seen subway art all over Blogland for awhile now. 
But, have you ever seen subway furniture?

Well...
Susan @ SIMPLY VINTAGEOUS took the theme to the extreme and
gave an old bureau the perfect artful makeover.


Do you enjoy seeing before-and-after
 makeovers?  I certainly do.

Anne @ White Lace Cottage shared several shots of her living room as it
 looked before the fabulous transformation you see above.

It was quite fun to pick out all the changes she has made.


With the numerous flower beds, plants, fruit trees and organic garden here
at the cottage, I have more things to attend to than time to do so.

But each time I see beautiful arrangements involving lilacs—
like this gorgeous tablescape by Judy @ JBigg's Little Pieces
I'm tempted to add the planting and subsequent care of lilac bushes
to my never ending workload.   ; )


There are some projects I never tire of. 
Those involving burlap just happen to be among them.

Cindy Jane @ Pajama Crafters
used burlap and spray paint
to totally transform her lackluster lamp into a sweet little showpiece.


That was just a small taste of the delights from last week's party. 
Now show us what you've got for this week.   ; )

  15. I planted a lilac bush last year and was very unhappy that it didn't flower. This year I can see some buds growing on it so I'm hoping in a few weeks I will have some gorgeous scented lilacs in my garden.
