Make it Pretty Monday - Week 44

Hello World!  Happy week to you!  My brother-in-law finished 24th in his age division in the half-ironman!  He actually shaved 15 minutes off of his previous swim time!  Way to go Dominic!  

On to the features and the party!  Welcome to Week 44 of:


Make it Pretty Monday
My Favorite
Pretty Cristina and Laura shared their vibrant April roses.  The Dedicated Daughter loved this one as well.  So very pretty.  You can pay a visit to Un Fiore di Crilà to see more of their April floral offering.

Craft Queen
Pretty Donna has been busy making Birds of Paris tags for journals.  How pretty and romantic these are.  To get the tutorial, head on over to Distressed Donna Down Home

Make it Pretty Monday
Shopping Queen
 Pretty Heather bought this fabulous fabric on one of her thrifting trips and made a couple of pillows out of them.  She also scored some fantastic brass pieces that are absolutely out of this world!   To see the loot, scoot on over to Tatter and Fray.  

Make it Pretty Monday
Furniture Transformation Queen
Pretty Holly has been bitten by the repurposed bench bug.  I say let him keep biting!  This headboard/footboard turned bench is perfect!    I think I may have to bookmark this one for a project way on down the road.  To see Holly and her bench, pop on over to 

Make it Pretty Monday
Sewing Queen
Pretty Kelli has pulled out her rainy days quilt to start working on it again.  What fun fabrics she's using.  I'm loving all the umbrellas.  Stop on in to Seriously, I Think It Need Stitches to say hi to Kelli and her quilt.  

Make it Pretty Monday
Culinary Delight Queen
Pretty Sarah is serving up two of my favorite ingredients, bread and cheese.  Oh, sweet comfort.  To get the recipe, pop on over to Alderberry Hill.  

Make it Pretty Monday
Dessert Queen
Pretty Alyssa has two more of my favorite ingredients, white chocolate and peanut butter.  Seriously decadent.  To get the recipe, head on over to What's Cooking Love?

Make it Pretty Monday
DIY Queen
Pretty Jennifer went thrifting, found an old pardon me ugly tray and transformed her into the prettiness you see here.  She's using it to help decorate the space above her cabinets.  Okay, I kinda love Mr. Rooster too.  Skip on over to Decorated Chaos to see the before shots. 

Make it Pretty Monday
Tablescape Queen
Pretty Jeanette Ann...I'm in love with your china.  A little tea on some English china.  How lovely.  Head on over to 
Heirloom Treasures to see more.  

Make it Pretty Monday
Home Decor Queen
 Pretty Jeannie knows that sometimes it's the simplest of details that makes all the difference.  She added a simple Ikea round mirror to the top of one of her end tables for a lovely update.  To gaze more at Jeannie's mirror, skip on over to French Hens Nest

Make it Pretty Monday
Spring Decor Queen
Pretty Artsy VaVa had a panoramic egg decorating party.  What little pretties they created.  To take a peek inside the eggs and to see more pretty pictures, hop on over to Artsy VaVa.  

Make it Pretty Monday
Gardening Queen
Pretty Tammy turned an old milk crate into a planter.  I've got a crate just sitting in the garage that should be housing plants.  Pop on over to One More Time Events to see Tammy and her milk crate.

1. Link up anything Family friendly...DIY, decor, crafts, recipes, gardening, shopping finds, sewing, inspirational stories, and beautiful photography.
  
2.  If you are participating in Make it Pretty Monday, be sure to link up your "permalink" post and not your general blog address.
 
3.  No etsy shops, giveaways and no sponsor pages.  I might have a separate party for those when I see how well this one goes.
