Newbies of the week

Yea-it's that time again-
my favorites of the week-
it's a week filled with newbies-
I'm shocked at how many of you
 have begun the wonderful blogging journey with me-
I wanted to showcase some of you this week
 but I will have many more newbie weekends
because the talent is crazy....

First up is Yari from Antologias del hogar
Look at this beauty-
She picked up this secretary on craigslist
and got some painting techniques
 from one of my fav blogger's Kate-
go check it out!

Next is Maggie from Little Miss Maggie!
This buffet is charming-
the lines, the details
the color,the crystal knobs
aah, what more could a gal wish for-love this!
Head over to Maggie's and say hi..

Another favorite this week is from
 Francine at Skyblupink
She recreated this hutch
 using one of my bff's- burlap
She's got some amazing creations
 over at her lil' ole' blog so go check her out!

Loved these newbies and I know you will too!
Have fun checking these creative ladies out!

Take care, gotta fly-Claire

  13. Hi Again Claire..I just wanted to let you know that when you try and hyperlink your blog the picture for Crafty Soiree comes up instead of one of yours. When you click on it, it is your blog but you may want to check your account settings to see why this is happening. You can see it on my FB page.
