Williams & Sonoma Inspires!

Who doesn't love Williams & Sonoma...or inspiration for that matter? How about getting inspired BY Williams & Sonoma? Well, I dropped by Get Your Martha On and Anne got inspired by this lovely picture from W&S Home collection (aren't those hurricanes lovely?):

But just as lovely is the candle holder that was made from looking at the inspiration photo above! Isn't is fantastic? Anne provides full (and very easy) instructions on her blog, so why not make one today?

Get Your Martha On - Hurricane Candle holders

The inspiration doesn't stop there! Decor Chick was inspired by Anne's project and created her own variation which she filled with rocks, sand, seashell, and embellished with jute. DC also includes very easy instructions for creating your own...oh, and did I mention that the supplies are all from a dollar store?!

Decor Chick's filled Hurricanes...and more!

Do you notice anything interesting in the picture above...look over on the's a cloche with a cute little bird and moss! I was inspired to search for more info on that cute little guy and lo and behold, Decor Chick shares a project on how to make them too! Again, you will NOT believe how inexpensive and easy they are to make. Look at her finished project:

So, I had to seek out more handmade cloches and found a really great variation at Copy Cat Creations!  Denise also used inexpensive items to create this delightful cloche, which she provides full instructions for on her blog:

So, are you guys inspired yet? I'm so inspired that I'm going to go digging through my china cabinet and closets to see what I can put together - don't worry, you guys will be the first to see if I come up with anything.
