Make it Pretty Monday - Week 35

Hello World!  Did everyone have a good weekend?  I got some serious cleaning and laundry done...thank goodness.  Last week we had such a nice turnout at the party.  And, the features!  Oh, my, the features!  Just wait till you see them.  Amazing!  You are all so talented.  
So, let's get started with Week 35 of:

Make it Pretty Monday
Your Favorite - Most Views
Pretty Kathy made these little risers to add height to some of her pretties in her cabinet.  I will definitely be using this idea in the future.  To see how she did it, head on over to 
Creative Home Expressions.  

Make it Pretty Monday
Craft Queen
Pretty Jen saw an inspiration picture from Pottery Barn and then got to work creating her very own mobile.  To get the tutorial and to see more fabulous pictures, scoot on over to 
Girl in the Garage.  

Make it Pretty Monday
Shopping Queen
Pretty Jennifer scored this rug for $10.00!  We've all seen these lovely rugs all over at our favorite shopping haunts for quite a pretty penny.  Head on over to Decorated Chaos to see where she found her extraordinary deal.  

Make it Pretty Monday
Furniture Transformation Queen
Pretty Patricia did an amazing job restoring this dresser and mirror. You must go and see the before and the surprise she painted on the sides of the dresser.  Patricia and her dresser can be found at 
Old Things New

Make it Pretty Monday
Sewing Queen
 Pretty Crystelle made this ever so pretty apron for her sweet friend Lisa who moved away.  Never to replace a friend, but maybe to soothe the pain a bit, Crystelle's "Lisa Apron" was published in Apronology; a magazine all about aprons.  So, head on over to Crystelle Boutique and give her a big 'At a Girl!  I'm sure Lisa is proud of her dear friend. 

Make it Pretty Monday
Culinary Delight Queen
Pretty Cathy is ready to warm us up with her 
Fire Roasted Tomato - Red Pepper Soup.  Seriously, doesn't this picture just make you immediately hungry?  To get the recipe, pay a visit to Lemon Tree Dwelling.   

Make it Pretty Monday 
Dessert Queen
Pretty Evelyn threw her hat in the ring and entered her Carmel Pear and Pecan Glaze over Cheesecake into the fun Get Your Chef On competition.  The ingredient that must be used was pears.  Head on over to My Turn for Us to get Evelyn's delish recipe.  

Make it Pretty Monday
DIY Queen
Pretty Melinda has been a busy little bee fitting out her dress form. To view the transformation, pop on over to 
The Reafeathered Roost.

Make it Pretty Monday
Tablescape Queen
 Pretty Jeanette has set the table with some really lovely items.  You must go visit and take a look as some of her close up shots of her linens.  The details are so pretty.  Jeanette can be found at Creating a Life

Make it Pretty Monday
Home Decor Queen
Pretty Darlene...Oh My Word!  Darlene and her hubby, Nick transformed her kitchen into what you see now.  You will not believe what it looked like before.  Scoot on over to My Honey Bunch to see the process and be ready to be amazed!

Make it Pretty Monday
Valentine Decor Queen
Pretty Angela has decked out her mantel for Valentine's Day.  I love the turquoise touches.  Pop on over to Hickory Trail to see all the pretty nuances. 

Make it Pretty Monday
My Favorite
 Pretty Andie transformed this quaint Craigslist breakfast table and chairs into the beauties you see.  Head on over to Divine Theatre to check out the before and to view more stunning pictures.  

See what I mean?  Amazing features!
