I Was Inspired By...

I have decide to move my I was inspired posts to Wednesdays (Tuesday night) because it works better with my "bloggin' schedule".  So without further ado, this week I was inspired by...
At All Thingz Related you find great, doable ideas like this adorable necklace.

or these number balls (way cuter than the Pottery Barn ones),
or this amazing wreath--she says she will never make another one, very time intensive, but I say worth it!  
And look at this craft center they made--visit their blog to see how they did it!
When I saw these candlesticks it inspired me to make my own version (the lazy girl's version). 
I have had these vintage BINGO markers for awhile and didn't know what I wanted to do with them until I saw Bridgette's candlesticks.  I hot glued the markers on the jute that I wrapped around my garage sale candlesticks.  

Check out what I paid for each candlestick.
So, although I didn't make an exact copy, All Thingz Related inspired me to make me own project.  Thanks Bridgette and Rebekah!
And don't forget to link up your under $100 idea on Thursday.
