Time Travel Thursday #102 & Talented Time Travelers #101


"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 102nd Time Travel Thursday linky party at The Brambleberry Cottage!

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

Want to take a peek at some of the loveliness linked last week by
our talented time travelers?  Of course you do!   ; )

FIRST, A REMINDER:
TONIGHT IS THE LAST NIGHT TO ENTER MY


I love, love, love hydrangeas and peonies!
There's something so romantic, so feminine
about their showy blooms.

When I saw the numerous lovely vignettes created—
using soft-hued hydrangeas displayed in pretty vessels—I knew you would
want to go visit Mary Alice @ Chateau Chic yourself.


I think we could all agree that it's
 the little touches that make a home unique.

This pretty piece of wall art, fashioned by Doreen of Hymns and Verses,
is just such an example.  It is but one of the little touches that fills her 
newly updated bathroom with cottage charm.


We're all familiar with the transforming power of paint.
But those magical makeovers never cease to amaze me.

You'll have to visit Julie @ redheadcandecorate to get
the full impact of her painterly touch in her kitchen.


While we're on the subject of paint,
Melissa @ Daisy Mae Belle found a wonderful old frame that she gave the
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint treatment.


It works beautifully in the foyer where she showcases her three sweet
little Southern belles—Daisy, Anna Belle, & Lila Mae.


Everyone has cans they've tossed or are preparing
to toss in the trash, right?

Why not turn that trash to treasure?

When Becky @ Timewashed saw the beauties above, created by
Viola @ Shabby Chic Inspired, she knew she just had to whip together a set for herself.


Becky also shared a terrific tutorial
for this timeless transformation.


Now, are you ready to party?

DON'T FORGET THE GIVEAWAY!
