2010 ROCKED the Creativity! The Best of Tickled Pink! Part 5...WHEW!

Well, I am on he final roudnup and getting ready to post the linky. I originally intended to break this up into categories...but well, I will be honest I have ran out of time. I have spent time with family and friends rather than the computer this week! 
So, I am sorry, this is LONG!
Best of Tickled Pink at 504 Main
Here's the recap!
Part 1 is BLOG Info
Part 2 is Causes
Part 3A is Cool Ideas
Part 3B is Inspiration 
Part 4 is In The Kitchen

The Antonio Treatment ran on HGTV after one of my favorite shows, Design Star. I LOVE this show! And, well, I love Antonio - yeah, I like a bad boy {didn't marry one though!}...I think he is dreamy {in a tattooed designing dude way}. He won me over with his Bright pink painted birds last season...
 {photo above from HGTV}

...and then he painted a room purple {I have a purple living room!}, and well, on his new show, let's just say I cannot wait for more of him...I mean his designs.
Check out this wall of reclaimed wood! I have watched this part of the show at least 4 times. You will be seeing this in my house, my garden, anywhere I can sneak it is. L-O-V-E! Sorry for the photo quality - I could not find one photo online, so I took photos of my TV - I felt so 13 again! Now I need to go record some songs from the radio and try to sing them.
