series favorites and inspiration

Earlier this month I posted about some fun series happening in blogland.
Some of them are wrapping up, some are still going, and they’re all filled with creative eye candy. Here’s a recap of my favorites!

Made by Rae is announced the winner of Spring Top Week TODAY! Jump over for the Reader’s Choice and our Judge’s Choice.

1. Blue Dots of Liberty 2. Criss-Cross hides Applesauce 3. Gypsy Top 4. Rainbow Blouse 5. Flowery Button Down 6. Block Top 7. Summer Camp Shirt 8. Lacey Little Folks 9. Swiss Pumpkin Top 10. Portfolio Tunic 11. French Inspired Tunic 12. Ruffled Red Top

For Spring Top Week, Rae also shared her own creations…..which I’d love to wear as well. Do I need some new tops?–other than boyfriend tees? I guess so.
