Whatever is Beautiful!!!!

Here are a few of the great ideas from today's Whatever Goes Wednesday party!
The Diary of Dave's Wife made this darling holly jolly yarn wreath for the Christmas Season. Love it!

I would love an kitchen island like this. I can't believe what it looked like before the makeover! Great job, Superwoman.
This Christmas word tree is a cute, simple and inexpensive idea! Perfect for a table or mantle. See it at Organize and Decorate Everything.

Greenbean Crafterole is the queen of creative soap ideas. I love this idea of coating vinyl leaves with soap. What a fun gift!!! Read about the soap leaves.

What a great place to put a nativity scene - on a lampshade. I think this idea from Impatiently Praying for Patience is brilliant.

I always wished I had a stroller cover like this for windy/rainy days. I never had one, but now - thanks to Naptime Crafters, I could make one! See the stroller cover tutorial.

Vintage Revival's Stellar Projects (All four)

The Crafting With the Stars contest is now over. If you followed along, you know the amazing projects that were spotted over at Sew Dang Cute Crafts (the contest host). My partner, Naptime Crafters, did amazing, but was voted out after the 3 round. Mandi at Vintage Revival was the winner/queen and I am showing her jaw-dropping projects with links below.
If you don't have a fireplace in your home (or apartment), no worries. Vintage Revival will show you how to make a faux mantle from cabinet doors, a pallet and some scrap wood.
Is this bedroom from a magazine? No, it is Vintage Revival's daughter's bedroom and the bedding is made from scraps. Makes me jealous that I don't have any talent like this!!!
I have wall envy over this desk, set of mirrors and chandelier. It's too cute to be real. BUT, it is real. You can read the tutorials about the redoing the desk HERE and the acid-aged mirrors HERE.

This Anthro teapot lamp knock-off just about knocked my socks off! It's beautiful! It looks 10 times better than what is in the Anthro catalog. Move over Anthro designers. Mandi is moving in!!!

If you can't tell why Vintage Revival won this competition, we need to have a little chat. She is a genius and crafting goddess. I'm proud to say I found her blog a couple of months ago and named her "A BLOG TO WATCH" because I could tell she had the potential to make waves in the blogging community. You might as well go over to her blog and "follow" her. Expect more from the powerhouse blogger, Mandi at Vintage Revival.
I'm sure she has much more up her sleeve!

Leaf Rosette Wreath (and FREE Gourds)

If anyone is looking for some free gourds and fall decor that grows outside, Shauntel, who lives in South Jordan, UT, received 6 bins of these this weekend and is looking to get rid of them. They are FREE. Please contact her either by e-mail at
or her cell phone - 435-650-6501.

Make a beautiful wreath out of your fall leaves! My wreath would have to be yellow since that is the color of leaves right now. This is brought to your from Sugar Bee.
