Friday I'm in Love...with Brights!

Lately I have had an obsession with bright turquoise and yellow.  I am actually thinking of using it in the baby's room, so it must be on the brain.  Needless to say, that was what I was drawn to this week.  I am really loving all of these picks  - the collection of them kind of reminds me of a beautiful Etsy Treasury!  

This first project is so gorgeous and unexpected - I love it! 

Shirley from I "Shir" Can Craft shared a tutorial for how to make these amazing Ric Rac Roses!  These would be awesome as embellishments for anything - rings, necklaces, headbands, pillows!  You name it - I am inspired, and this has been pinned to my Things I Want To Make board.  Thanks for sharing the tute Shirley!!

I couldn't resist this Flower Petal Pillow from A Mommy's Life...With a Touch of Yellow.  Whitney shared the tutorial on her blog as well - I have been wanting to find out how to make these Flower Petals forever!  Isn't it gorgeous??  I may have to bust out the sewing machine for this one!

It always amazes me when people have the guts to paint furniture.  I haven't found the courage yet, but Stacy from Not Just a Housewife did just that!  I guess it helps that she found the chair for $5 -  I think Hubby would kill me if I painted my dining room chairs!  LOL.  This chair came out so awesome - I love the bright color!!  

These Felt Flowers are so cool!  I have seen these around, but never knew how to make them...until now.  Crystal from A Pumpkin and a Princess gives a step by step tutorial - I may be running out to buy some felt in the very near future!!

And finally, I absolutely fell in love with this Executive Desk Makeover from Melissa at Shabby Loco!  How nice would it be to walk into your home office and see this everyday?  It would definitely make me smile all the time!

I hope my favorites were a bright spot in your week!  If you were featured, feel free to grab a button from my sidebar.  Have a great weekend everyone!!
