The Letter of the Day is...


I finally made the giant N for the kitchen. It's only been on my project list for like a year. I painted it black then added the vintage images, most of which came from my Lang calendar last year. They make such beautiful calendars, I always hate throwing them away at the end of the year. I can be sensible and usually end up tossing them out, but I loved the one from last year so much, I hung on to it. Of course I got an earful from the hubby - "What are you ever gonna do with that, blah blah blah." I considered that he might be right, but quickly dismissed the idea. (Still love ya hunny) Now eleven months later, Boo-Ya! An oh-so-fabulous use for my oh-so-fabulous calendar which is now my oh-so-fabulous letter N. I'm still toying with adding some ribbon, but overall, I'm pretty happy with the results.

so cute.

When I was at your house, I noticed a cute little wreath and it had black and white ribbon tied on it. Have you ever posted pictures of that? I have had it on my mind for a while and would love to do something like that. Did it have pictures on it?

Very cute girl! I've been wondering what you were going to do with that big card board thing!

That's so totally cute!
Okay... I have some calendars dating back to 1994.
My defense to my hubby??-- well, I am terrible at journalling, so I would write on the calendar 'Stephie's first tooth' or 'Maddy said bye-bye.'
