February In Review

So, February flew by. But I’m sick of winter and READY for spring, so it evens out.

I know that I’ve missed a few months in review, but it’s coming back for February. You know, in case you missed anything. 🙂

To start out the month, I talked about my love for plantation shutters. Love them! They’re just about ready to make an appearance in our home. So excited!

Then, I decided that February was the month to take down the Christmas decor from the front porch. Yep. I added wintery items and haven’t changed it since.

April and I started a new monthly series: $30 Thursday, and I showed you my DIY Fruit Crates.

I shared my plan and inspiration for our kitchen backsplash. Hopefully I’ll have an update soon! Wink, wink!

Then, I shared how I’ve started to add meaning to home. It’s that much sweeter now!

I decided to try my hand at a double sided pillow and I’m still smiling at the results!

I shared my DIY family recipe plate, which is oh so special… and easy!

My best thrift store find was definitely the vintage-y/ farmhouse-y milk bottle. $1.00, baby!

I couldn’t get enough of sewing, so I tacked a Ruffle Table Runner. Pure happiness!

And finally, I ended the month with these super special onion baskets. Now those could tell a story or two…

There you have it! What a busy month! And now we’re on to March- which just happens to mean SPRING is right around the corner. Happy dance!

Round two of $30 Thursday is this week… on Thursday. 🙂

Stay tuned!

P.S.- I’ve also decided to come out from under my rock and join Facebook. I’m having all sorts of fun with it. Be sure to like my page for updates, sneak peaks, and the randomness that I feel like sharing! 🙂
