Creatively Tuesday #8

Woo Hoo!!  It’s that time again!!  Creatively Tuesday #8!!
It was a busy week last week as I got ready for my second craft show on Saturday!  Here is what I was up to at Rustic Pig Designs…
I made an Accidental Tea Cart
You’ll have to read more about it to find out why I call this one an accident!
Hubby and I also made a sweet little bench out of an old Headboard
Not too shabby for a $5 headboard, huh?
I made a fun little Chalkboard Desk….
Something the kids CAN write on!
I shared about some wisdom gained at my 2nd Craft Show
It was a great week at The Rustic Pig!! 

….Now on to our FEATURES for this week….

Food LOVE…

Don’t these pumpkin pancakes from Connie over at Family Home and Life look delish?
I am a sucker for pumpkin pancakes!  YUM!!

Craft LOVE…

Seriously, is this not the cutest thing you have ever seen?
This too cute owl craft was made by my sweet blog friend Kathy over at Life on Lakeshore Drive.
I was amazed by these gorgeous frames made by Stephanie over at The Enchanting Rose
Don’t you just love them?  Ahhhhh…. Love….

Furniture LOVE…

Can you say WOW??  First of all, this is just a beautiful vanity to begin with, but after Debbie from Flower Child Designs got a hold of it.. WOW!  I’m just speechless.  Amazing!!
Look at all of the details!  Fabulous!!

Queen of it ALL…

The link with the most views was….

Karin from Art is Beauty!!  She painted this lovely little sewing cabinet…
