January at a Glance

February 10, 2014

Yes, I said glance.....and for good reason.
Doesn't it seem like the 31 days in the month passed us by just long enough for a quick glance? It almost felt like what I tell people when they are trying to find my small town " Don't blink or you will miss it".

And it seems that even a bit of snow here, couldn't slow the month down long enough, although I am sure the families that have kids home for weeks now ( due to much more snow then the couple of inches we had), are saying the month couldn't go by any faster.

Here's a recap....or glance, of the happenings at Top This Top That during the month of January.

Chandelier Makeover.....with my photo blunder as a bonus.

I made a couple of wreaths for Valentines Day. Like this easy boxwood heart wreath here

and some heart burlap wreaths here.

Showed you how SnowJam 2014 shut Atlanta down for days.... But it sure was pretty. We have another snow and ice event in the forecast for this week. SnowJam Part 2!

and, I finally surrendered to half painted walls and unfinished projects from 365 days ago. You can read more here.

I have two major projects underway this month. I am putting the finishing touches on the craft room here and have begun painting cabinets in the kitchen. I will share more about that later this week.

So whether you still think it's January or feel like me....I hope you had a great month and that February is off to an amazing start.

Grateful ~

PS- are you caught up in watching the Olympics? How amazing for those athletes to compete and represent the USA after all that training and hard work. Bring home the gold - USA!

  2. You've got a lot of new projects happening. Can't wait to see them. I love your wreaths and your chandelier.

  3. Aren't you the brave girl-painting your kitchen cabinets? Can't wait to see those.
    You are right- January flew past but I, for one, will be glad to see this long, cold winter end. It has been a hard one here in the Midwest.
    Great projects you had here, Laura. Blessings- xo Diana

  4. Laura I can't wait to see the kitchen. I'm sure you'll do a great job as always. If this weather doesn't turn warmer soon I may hit my self in the head with a mallet, LOL, need to get this home moving again.


  5. Hi Laura- Can't wait to see the cabinets! laura

  6. I'm excited about your craft room. I'm not excited for you about painting kitchen cabinets. Been there, done that. I'm sure it will look amazing, but what a pain;)

  7. I can't wait to see your craft room finished. Here in the north east it's been snowing all winter long. We are getting another 10+ inches of snow then sleet tomorrow.

  8. Laura, I missed your chandy... it is gorgeous! Sounds like you have a big big job on your hands... painting your kitchen cabinets... you are one very industrious girl!

  9. Love all your wreaths...come link up to centerpiece Wednesday and share this post with us. http://thestylesisters.blogspot.com/2014/02/centerpiece-wednesday-113.html
