Spring greetings all, it’s going to be a sunny weekend according to the weatherman and I can’t wait to soak up some sun. Today it’s time for another round of ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ and Amanda and I have gathered up our favorites! First a few stunning kitchen makeovers from the week…

Maria of Colour Me Happy had her green and white kitchen featured in Style at Home magazine and wrote about it on her blog transforming her dated builder grade space to a modern beauty!

Also, a big shout out to Tracy of Right Up My Alley, my teammate in the Creating with the Stars challenge. She/we didn’t make it to the final round but I was so impressed with her handmade color block hutch and shelf turned bar cart transformation (she made that gold leaves mirror too!) – fantastic job Tracy !
