Showing Off - my picks

Hi everyone!!  I say it every week, but what a great link-up!!  Want to know what stood out to me?  Here we go...

Sarah from Welcome to the Good Life showed how to wear a shirt as a skirt - I am wearing a stripped shirt right now - - I think I'll go try it on as a skirt after I type this post up...



I've made these paper ornaments like A Law Student's Journey, but I never thought to shove them inside a glass ball ornament - great idea!


Sparkle Sparkle!!  Take those old bulb lightblubs from strands of discarded lights, and glitter them up, like The Moody Fashionista:


Life in the Making did a great job tweaking this thrift store shirt - starting by wearing it backwards - - I wish I could find a shirt like that!  Check it out to see the details:


Fabric Fortune Cookies is the way that Happy-Go-Lucky is doing her advent calendar this year - cute idea!


Remember my red scallopped tote?  Flatrock Cabin made a green version - I kind of like it better:


Mmmm, maybe Something Swanky will come make me some Monster Cookies....


Some PJ inspiration from Sugar Tart Crafts if you're like me and wanting to make some for everyone for Christmas...


I am loving the Cowl neck on this shirt that Melly Sews made - - I'll be grabbing that pattern next time I'm at Joanns...


Que Linda on the Girl Creative showed off this end table - I love it!!


I am loving all the hanging ornaments at House of Noise - - what a cute and easy way to decorate!!  Click over to see more spots where she's using them....



And what you've been waiting for - - - most viewed link......

it's Welcome to the Good Life as mentioned above with her tie-on skirt - -


and time out, I'm off to try it - - - okay, I'm back - -curses, I forgot my shirt is only half-sleeved, not long-sleeved, but here it is (yep, I even put shoes on, just to take a picture for you):
I dunno, I kinda think the wider stripes on mine doesn't make it work as well....Sarah, are you out there? whatcha think??


Thanks for linking everyone!!  If you were featured feel free to grab the button:  (oh, and if you were featured on FB, or if you're featured later this afternoon, you're included - grab away!!)
