Greetings everyone, happy Sunday! I’ve got most of my gift shopping done, thanks to a whirlwind (and kid less!) trip yesterday, feeling great about that. We’re decorating the tree and mantel today, but I wanted to pop in with one more round of the ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ before calling it quits with the series for the year. Here’s a few ideas we spied (Amanda and I) from around the blogosphere over the past couple of weeks.
We’ve seen plenty of pallet decor this year, but we’re absolutely loving this more polished version of a recycled pallet coffee table by Refreshed Decor, Kacey’s handy husband built this one!
Mrs. Devore created a divine sawhorse desk for $10, wow! Visit Dwellings by Devore to read how she pulled it off.
Mrs. Limestone shows us all how to maximize space and utility with this handy behind the door wrapping paper organizer, love it!
Hey people, if you’ve got an empty lotion bottle, don’t toss it, transform it. Check out this cell phone charger holder made from a plastic lotion bottle by Make It and Love It. Genius!
Who would have thought these cocktail napkins could transform into a pretty wreath?! Amy at Living Locurto spills (hee hee) how she did it.
Candace at Crafty Sisters created this sweet wood Christmas tree of ordinary 2x4s, it makes a charming statement on her mantel.
We love these glitter cardstock Christmas trees by LandeeSeeLandeeDo, especially the bright colors she chose!
Want to go coastal with your tree this year? Kim shows us her easy glass float ornament how-to over at Sand and Sisal.
We love those zinc letters but retail, they can be pricey. Janell from Isabella and Max shows us how to recreate the look for much less with her architectural letters.

Thanks Amanda for helping me round up some picks and being such a great scout this year! Visit with Amanda over at her blog Serenity Now.
I’m taking a break from the series for the rest of the year to spend more weekend time with family, but I’d love your feedback. What did you think of the ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ series this year? Would you like to see it return in January? I’m thinking more like twice a month instead of every week. Are there any other categories you’d like to see featured? Speak your mind!
Psssst… the Holiday Home Link Parties start tomorrow, with Layla hosting Table Decor. I stitched up a simple hostess gift idea, see you then.
