Let’s see who she picked. It just might be you!

Judge’s Comments are in italics.


#10 Fort Building Kit from Dukes and Duchesses

This is genius!   I’m going to keep this in mind for when my daughter is old enough to build a fort.  Wouldn’t this make a fun gift too?


#27 Blue Mercury Glass from Morena’s Corner

I’ve seen mercury glass around a lot lately, but I think I might actually be able to pull it off after seeing how awesome this turned out.  It’s absolutely beautiful.


#3 Giant Painted Scissors from Tales of a Trophy Wife

This is so original.  I want one for my craft room!


#30 Cookie Sheet to Shamrock from Morena’s Corner

Who would of thought?  I love this!  The possibilities are endless for what you can cut out of a cookie sheet.


#17 Framed Spring from A Diamond in the Stuff

This is an awesome way to decorate a room.  I want to put my daughter’s name in the frames for her bedroom.


#20 Dollar Store Vase from Alderberry Hill

This makes a dollar store find look expensive.  It’s so simple, but has a huge impact.


#8 Dollar Store Bookends from Sweet Suite 10

These bookends look like something from Pottery Barn.  It’s an amazing transformation.


#24 Capiz Shell Tidbit Stand from Carolyn’s Homework

This stand is gorgeous! 


#25 Silver Animal Jars from Carolyn’s Homework

These are super unique and the silver color makes them look expensive.


#15 Dollar Store Art Wall from The Little Brown House

This looks so fancy and I love the decals that Sharyl put on them.  Very nice!
