I say it every year – February is a tricksy little month. For having the fewest days, it always feels like the loooongest month of the year to me. It’s the month when I start internally protesting the never-ending cold and dark, when the promise of warm spring days is just out of reach & therefore all the more torturous!
This year, February was even more difficult for me than usual. I am truly and completely thrilled that we have reached the 28th day of my least favorite month. Tomorrow is going to a fresh start for my mind, body & soul – and there are only 20 days until Spring! (I am definitely counting!)
February wasn’t all bad here on my little blog, though. Here’s a recap of what went well:
I shared the Valentine’s Day love with some pink & white heart shaped sugar cookies. I made them for my hubby, but I pretty much ate all of them myself. Oops.
I gave an old chair a makeover in the form of fresh new upholstery. Then I photo-shopped thought bubbles above my dog’s head for far longer than necessary.
I insulted all of you readers through the use of a bad pun, and then confessed to my history of house-plant-killing & introduced you to my new Succulent friends Rosie, Spike and Rudy (along with their woodland creature buddies).
My Wedding Table Numbers DIY was featured on the fabulous WeddingLovely Blog. Check it out here!
I shared my favorite bedtime & daily beauty products that sit on my makeup tray.
My dreams of a new kitchen took one step closer towards becoming a real possibility, as I compiled my wish list & created a kitchen mood board that will inspire us as we begin to plan our renovation!
I exposed my family in all of our gnome-loving weirdness & shared a fun little gnomey (and homey) art DIY project.
And finally, I shared the DIY instructions to make a lovely Initialed Ring Dish, and I announced a Giveaway (I’m shipping one of these handmade lovelies out to TWO lucky readers!) You can still enter – so go do it! 🙂
If you’re a new reader this month, thanks for following & I hope you’ll stay around!

So see you later, February, and bring on the Spring!
