Reclaimed Pallet Kitchen Island

Who would ever think that you could make a kitchen island out of an old dresser? 
Andrea from Scrapality did and it's amazing!

You can see her whole transformation Here.

Dip Dyed Fall Leaf Banner

I love the simplicity and warmth of this Fall Leaf Banner hanging on the fireplace by
 Little Red Window. It's perfect!

Have a happy Monday!

Fall Mantel and Mini Banners

With everything going on around here, I haven't had too much time for decorating.

But, I did manage to get a little bit up on the mantel to celebrate Fall.

I had some of the fabric left from my Fall Banner, so I decided to use it on burlap that I had from last year to make a couple of "mini" banners.

All I did was applique the scarecrow and sunflower to the burlap.
Easy peasy!

I glued buttons to the top of thumbtacks to hang them.

My candle lantern still said "Happy Spring", so I thought I better change it, too.

The Folded Star Pumpkin hanging in the middle is from last year.
You can see how I made it Here.

Happy Fall, y'all!

It's a Party! #177

Hello, my friends, welcome to the party!

It probably wouldn't be the start of this party if I didn't give you a wedding update. We're heading toward the finish line and I just have a few more projects to wrap up. Poor Greg has learned to just ignore all the piles that are sitting around the house. They're all little things that need a few more touches and he knows not to move anything! It's my own organized mess and will all be gone soon. He also learned this week that he is NOT to touch the Royal Mints or the nuts that are sitting on the kitchen table!

Besides all the wedding stuff, I did manage to get the Fall Banner done for the front door.

That window had me stumped, but I think this works. I loved making the letters, I'll have to do more of those for other occasions.

I also worked on our fireplace mantel and made a couple of "mini" banners. I'll show you those on Friday.

Did you see the features this week? They were awesome!

Scarecrows from Interior Design Blog
Candy Corn Popcorn Balls by Saving with Shellie
Wine Rack Craft Room Organization from The Thrifty Rebel

Reminder: For the next few weeks, I will have features Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The party will start on Wednesday afternoon and I'll have a craft to share with you on Friday. Things are crazy around here with Brandon and Christina's wedding coming up and this really helps me out.
Everything will be back to normal the first of October.

Link up anything you want to share with us this week. It can be your fabulous craft, yummy recipe, giveaway, shop, etc.

I'll feature the Top 5 most viewed links next Wednesday. I started a board on Pinterest where I pin all of the fabulous features. You can follow along Here.

I would love for you to follow A Creative Princess while you're here!

If you would like to grab an It's a Party button (on the sidebar) and post it on your blog somewhere, that would be great! Let's get the word out and grow this party.
The more the merrier!

We all love comments, so please visit other links and have fun!

Wine Rack Craft Room Storage

I owe Tuula from The Thrifty Rebel a huge thank you for linking up this awesome idea to last week's It's a Party!

Her Wine Rack Craft Room Storage that's made out of an old wine rack and Pringles cans.
Pure genius!  

I'm a self proclaimed hoarder crafter, so I have a ton of those cans and all I need to do now is run to Goodwill and find a wine rack. I can't tell you how excited I am!
 (Yes, it's the little things in life that make me happy.)

Have a Happy Hump Day and I'll see you back here later this afternoon for this week's party!
