Creatively Tuesday #14

Well, between the flu making its rounds though our home, and last minute Christmas shopping, it’s a wonder I got anything done!!

Here is what Rustic Pig Designs has been up to this week…

Today’s A Table for Two
As you can tell, it was a slow going week for me!

I’m super excited to see what you’ve been working on, but first, let’s see who our Creative Geniuses are this week!

Please show these blogs some love by checking out these fabulous features, and should you decide to Pin any of these, please go their site first and pin away!

Food LOVE…

Anything with Red Velvet in the name is my kind of dessert!!  Check out these Peppermint Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies made by Hills Dale Home Front.

I LOVE Fruit Salad during the holidays, and this one is going to have to be on my list of things to make!!  Check out this Berries and Cream Fruit Salad from Made From Pinterest.

Santa Love…

Here, The Sunshine Moms, share two fun websites for keeping the Santa magic alive!

Christmas Craft Love…

Soooo sad the Christmas season is almost over….
But first….

I love this idea from Violet Imperfection!  She wrapped 25 Christmas books for her daughter and each night they open one and read it together.  So sweet!

How fun is this??  An upside down Christmas tree in a chandelier!  I love it!!!  This was designed by Flower Child Designs while helping decorate with a friend.

Vintage(d) Tree Topper
Look at this beautiful Vintage Tree Topper made by The Answer is Chocolate.  I’m just speechless!

Furniture Love…

I love this plaid desk painted by The Golden Sycamore!  It is just perfect!!

I am always amazed by people who can sew or reupholster furniture.  I love this quilted bench made by  From Generation to Generation and her story behind the beautiful plates that hang on the wall behind it.

Again… just amazed by the transformation of these once, cane-backed chairs, now turned into fabric.  Just gorgeous!!  This beautiful set was done by My Painted Stuff.

Finally…The Queen of It All…

These Three-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies by The Domesticated Princess was the link up with the most views!
Anything I can make with just three ingredients is a recipe for me!!


You all are GREAT!!!!
