Tuesday Treats #12 {Ideas and Inspiration from around the web}

Today I am preparing for visitors! I love when family and friends roll into town for a few days. So I am off cleaning and organizing before they get here late tonight. Do you have any tips or tricks that save time getting ready for guests? {I would love to hear...leave a message in the comments!}

I love when websites and blogs inspire me. I enjoy seeing fresh new ideas and this week's links don't disappoint people! Enjoy!

#1. Floral & Polka Dot Covered Eggs:
It is that time of year! Easter is this coming weekend. Do you usually dye Easter eggs? It use to be a fun tradition with my family, but I haven't gotten into it over the past few years. Kristen came up with this adorable idea....covering eggs with adorable flower paper by using a glue/water mixture while using a sharpie to create dalmatian dots on the opposite eggs. So creative I tell ya! Tutorial Here.

#2. New Bud Vases from Arrow & Sage:
I am sure most of you remember the talented Anna from Arrow & Sage. She did a giveaway a little while back. Well she is back at it again...creating the most amazing pottery for amazing prices! I love her new little Terra bud vases she has in the shop for only $22.00! And how about the pair of cylinder vases for $30.00! She is amazing that girl!

#3. 6th Street Design School: The Story of A Room
Kirsten from the blog 6th Street Design School is such a talented designer/decorator. She recently did a series where she told the story of how she goes about helping her clients design a room that they will love. You can start HERE and then go back to the beginning reading from day one to the final install. It is really an amazing transformation. You can see a couple of the final pictures below.

#4. Barbara Huber Designs: New Napa Valley Picnic Tote
Did you all know that my mother-in law is a talented sewer and designer? She designs patterns for Quilt Woman and her new Picnic Tote is amazing! How fun would this beauty be to take on summer picnics or to the beach? You can visit the rest of her patterns Here and check out her blog Here. She often has free patterns you can follow and such great sewing tips and tricks.

#5. Art By Michelle: Last Chance!!!
Don't forget that you can get 10% off any Art By Michelle custom house portrait or print through Thursday, April 17th!!! Use Code: EATSLEEPDECORATE at checkout!! These would make amazing mother's day and father's day gifts!! You can see what she designed for me Here

Have a great rest of your day sweets! See you back here tomorrow for my front porch update!
