Skied, Survived, Inspired and Featured

Hi friends!
My kids were on school vacation this past week and we spent the last few days skiing in New Hampshire at Loon Mountain.  This is a great family mountain and has great trails for all levels.  My oldest son is a snowboarding-double-black-diamond-daredevil kind of guy; his mom makes it down the mountain at a steady rate of 2 miles per hour.

We had so much fun skiing with friends (and running into other close friends on the trails!  Crazy small world!) The only problem was that it was next to impossible to get wi-fi up there.  I was constantly trying to check out your before and after projects from my phone when I could get reception!

And wow - you goal achievers did NOT disappoint!  I am so inspired by each and every one of you that accomplished a project!!!  Lots of great before and afters were linked up, and the party will be open for another week if you'd still like to share something you worked on in February!   Check it out here.

This Friday, 3/2 will be the kickoff of March projects - link up any idea you are hoping to accomplish in the coming month and then come on back at the end of the month to share your after!

Thank you to everyone who weighed in on my idea for a plate wall in my dining room!

I'm still mulling that one over and appreciate so very much all of your feedback!!!  The overwhelming response was
Do What You Want Because It's Your House!!!
I completely concur, plus it's not like it's permanent, so why not give it a whirl??

Lastly, Beckie at Roadkill Rescue featured my wine cork tray this weekend.
Have you ever visited Roadkill Rescue?  Dedicated to all things trash to treasure - this blog is chock full of fabulous ways to repurpose and recycle.  {Beckie is also the writer of the wonderful blog Infarrantly Creative.}  Thanks for featuring my tray, Beckie!

See you tomorrow for Mangia Mondays February Features!
Enjoy your Sunday Funday my lovelies.

Oh I wish we had gotten away to ski this year! I haven't skiied New Hampshire yet. We usually go to Killington, VT...although I am no expert. I am perfectly fine on the green and blue runs! Love the wine cork tray and your springy header!

Oh, love the tray! How did I miss that post? Hard to think of skiing now - it's been so warm here this winter and my grass already needs to be mowed!
