Sunday Linky Party #64 + Goodies

Hope you're all having a wonderful Sunday! What did you guys do for Mother's Day last weekend? I spent the day hanging out with my mom and mother-in-law (separately!) and it was pretty relaxing :) This week is full of some very inspiring tutorials and some really great recipes (especially all the dessert ones). I'm so lucky because whenever I want to make something new, I can go back and look through all the Linky Parties. Now let's get on with the features!

Babies grow up super fast (which most people seem to agree with) so keep those memories close with this diy baby's footprint necklace, with your own baby's footprint! Seriously! And it's really easy too, and I love that it's so personalized. Get this tutorial from Hubby Made Me.

Make beautiful string feathers (like the one above) and use them as your signature mark! (ha, just kidding :) But you could use them for lots of things, like home decor, gift packaging, a brooch? Find this tutorial at Twigg Studios. If you like the flower in the photo too, you'll want to see her naturally dyed paper flowers tutorial. Here's a few more: clay gift tags and fabric butterfly collar tutorials.

Brighten up your house with these cheerful and colorful chevron window boxes! The wood boards are actually applied over existing window boxes so it doesn't take much construction. Check it out at Hell on Heels Housewife.

To get that metal look without getting rid of your wood furniture and buying new ones, get inspired by this Restoration Hardware-inspired wood and "metal" table makeover at From Gardners 2 Bergers. It looks really good! And it's a great way to change the style of your room without refurnishing the entire place.

Give your white/beige/neutral clothing a soft color using different types of natural dye! Het Groene Kamertje kept a journal of her natural dyes, which is a great guide for the rest of us :)

This milk bottle tutorial is so easy, you'll really be surprised. In fact, all you really need is to find the perfectly shaped bottle, which also isn't very hard. Check it out at The 36th Avenue and see her distressed stenciled sign tutorial, too.

Looks amazing, not too hard to make, have a vitamin-packed fruit tart from My Fantastic Journey!

Is there such thing as a healthy chocolate mousse pie? It would appear so by looking at the ingredients from this recipe by Izzy in the Kitchen! Try her coffee ice cream dream cake, too.

This aromatic rosemary bread deserves a spot on your dinner table! Get everyone around the table with this recipe from Little Green Bow.

Start your meal off with these easy creamy tomato soup. It looks really yummy and I love the tomato slice garnish floating on top :) Get this recipe from A Rosie Sweet Home and her homemade spaghetti sauce as well.
