I am thrilled to feature these great TTT entries from last week!

Many of us are thinking Valentines Day already… look at pretty and EASY FABRIC HEARTS from COTTAGE AT THE CROSSROADS. Jane your choice of fabrics is so cheery!

The number one most viewed post last week was all about COLLECTIONS. Erika from BE BOOKBOUND shared a fabulous home and some great collections. We all love house tours!

After you stop drooling over this soooooo beautiful room, concentrate on the lamp.  It is made out of a sweater…. yes, a SWEATER LAMP!  And you won’t believe how easy Beth from UNSKINNY BOPPY made the tutorial!

I am selfishly posting these delicious HOMEMADE GRAHAM CRACKERS from DIMPLES AND DELIGHTS… I’m hosting a hot chocolate and s’more bar this weekend and will be making these tomorrow.  Won’t homemade graham crackers taste so much better than store bought? YUMMY!

This Pottery Barn inspired French VALENTINE PILLOW makes my heart skip a beat!!! Isn’t it just darling? If you go over to CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT you will find a great tutorial with lots of tips and the GRAPHIC on the pillow… on my must make list!

We must all need to clean out our refrigerators and organize them because ORGANIZING THE FRIG  AND FREEZER from CLEAN AND SCENTSIBLE was sooo popular! Lots and lots of great tips! As soon as my 21 year old frig stops running I’m going to have a better organized frig too!

This KINDLE COVER is A-dorable and a super easy tutorial!  Head on over to MOM’S 4 REAL and see for yourself.

This Pottery Barn inspired LOVE SIGN stole my heart! So beautifully done by Remodelando La Casa… and a easy to follow tutorial!

My offering this week is a PARIS GREY BUFFET transformation.  My daughter and I did this together for her dining room in DC. It was so much fun to teach her to use chalk paints!
