You’ve Got Mail!

That reminds me of AOL - those were the good ol’ days.  Did anyone else instantly think of that? 

Unfortunately (or fortunately) the days of AOL are gone. Please tell me you're not still on AOL. But, we are still getting snail mail.  Let’s be honest, most of the mail we get these days is junk.  Every once in awhile, we will receive a sweet card from a family member or an actual invitation to a party.  These things are exciting, who doesn’t love the anticipation of what’s inside that envelope?

Quick weekend project - magazine holder

Quick weekend project - magazine holder

I love a good challenge.  Especially when I know I can get it done fairly quickly.

My sweet aunt needed a magazine holder for her bathroom.  Because ya’ll have to have something to read while you’re in there.

She sent me a few pictures of things she had picked up at the store.

String Art Mason Jar Project

String Art Mason Jar Project

String art has been popular all over the nation.  I am seeing string art on Pinterest, parties on Facebook, and events in our area.

Since I wanted something seasonal that had to do with Spring and flowers, I decided to make a mason jar.  Now you’re probably wondering what a mason jar has to do with Spring and flowers. Well, let me show you!

Grab your coffee and settle in for this one.

I wish I had great news for you. I wish I was showing you pictures of the beautiful, finished product.  I wish for a lot of things.

But friends, I have nothing.

At least a couple times a day, I get the question ‘So, how’s the kitchen coming along?’

Here in the midwest we have been seeing warmer temperatures, consistently.  Hello Spring!  This also means there are plants and flowers EVERYWHERE!  I mean, when Target busts out their garden and patio stuff, you can’t just walk past it.

With plants and flowers on my mind, I couldn’t help but think about the poor tree that has lived on our porch for years.  Friends, it died this winter.  I don’t know how it happened, but it did.  That was THE ONLY THING I could keep alive.
