Wicked Awesome Links

Here are some fun, home-related links I found around the internet this week:

Pretty Handy Girl Blog
I've always been a fan of Brittany's site Pretty Handy Girl. I wanted you to see this Artist's Inspiration Board.  I love this idea!  She wrote a great tutorial on how to make this:

Have you ever seen the site, A Brooklyn Limestone? In addition to renovating their older home, they share crafts, design tips, and even talk about their travel adventures around the world.  A very interesting site!
  
This next article from Bankrate.com might sound kind of dry, but I had to share it.  The article says that Bank of America will be giving away houses in Chicago.  A direct quote from the article:

"Unfortunately," BofA said in a statement, "many homeowners faced with unemployment, underemployment and other economic hardships have transitioned to alternative housing situations, and in many cases, have walked away from their homes, leaving behind vacant and deteriorating properties that can cause neighborhood blight."

I have a few things I could say about this, but what do you think?

On a much lighter note, I found a wicked funny article from This Old House.com called:  

How to protect your home in a Zombie invasion.
You never know when this information might prove useful! ;-)  The comments beneath the article are hilarious! Just something to keep in mind in case the undead come knocking.

Hope you're all having a great weekend!

Love the window sash converted to a board! So clever! I see windows all the time and think.....hmmm...what could I use these for?
Now I know!
Happy weekend, Laurie.
