Home and Garden Thursday

Many of you are probably experiencing the chilly grip of winter! It’s really cold here – but that’s it! My theory is, if it is going to be this cold, it might as well snow! With that in mind, I do hope you all are warm and cozy where you are and that you’re able to do what you wish to do! It seems being indoors during these cold winter months may be the best time to create! I’m looking forward to seeing what you’ve been up to!

Here’s what I shared with you!

red roses and love on chalkboardI am loving this chalkboard in my kitchen above my desk. If you’d told me a couple years back that I would have and like chalkboards in my home, I may have looked at you strange!

Dollar Store Challenge candle holderI love a good challenge. In the depth of winter is a wonderful time to create! Barbara at The Everyday Home will be hosting the first Dollar Store Challenge – this week it is creating something with a glass candle holder. This is what I made!

  16. Kathy, I am also quite enamored by chalkboards right now and as you, I would have thought that strange a few years ago. I love your Dollar Store entry . The features are awesome – thank you for hosting each week… Cathy
