March Monthly Highlights and a Kitchen Peek

Whoever came up with the saying ""in like a lion" and going "out like a lamb" must not have seen me or my house during the month of March. To say that the Kitchen project here was beginning to slightly kick my ........ is right on. 





We actually worked like Lions this weekend to finish up painting the last of  the drawers, touch ups, lining cabinets and putting stuff back in it's place. WE ARE DONE!
Here's a sneak peek.




Here's a few other things I managed to share during the month.

Simply simplistic Spring Mantel here


Recipe for yummy and easy PB& J Cupcakes here


Build a succulent garden in less than 5 mins here


Shared 4 of my favorite easy Spring projects

So did March come in a Lion and leave like a lamb for you, or were you a lion the whole month too? 


Grateful for~
A husband that never left my side during the kitchen project and helped every step of the way...even if I was 'roaring' at him.

January at a Glance

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 ~
To be able to volunteer in my community and giveback.


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!

December Highlights

Last month of the year
Last days of the month
Last day of the week
It's been a wonderful month, and I am kinda sad that it's coming to an end. A month filled with holiday home tours, school parties, holiday baking and children's smiles. But with it's ending, comes a whole new year filled with lots of new projects, goals and adventure.
But before we get ready to countdown to the New Year, I wanted to share a few highlights from the month at Top This Top That.








I hope you enjoy this last weekend of the year. Go out and do something amazing!

A wonderful Christmas with my family

October Hightlights at Top This Top That

Welcome November...... All of us ' hot cocoa drinking snugglers' have been waiting for you! 
So tell me, did you survive Halloween without major sugar rushes and newly formed cavities? The thrill of candy seems to last just a day in our house, then it's pretty much forgotten about....until mom eats the last snicker bar.

I think one of the funnest highlights in October was attending the Country Living Fair with Kim , Shirley and Kelly. Spending the day with friends, meeting new ones, buying a few signs from one of my favorite bloggers here, and a little shopping is always such a treat. 


Here's some highlights from the month of October at Top This Top That.


I joined some other  bloggers in a Fall Porch Tour here.


I made some yummy candy apples here.


If you are a hopeless romantic like me, then you will love my story here and my farmhouse table.


I am taking control of chaos and regaining some sanity in my house with my DIY dry board. Details here.


Want to make a fun fall craft? Click here for the tutorial for this Leaf Bowl.


And finally, after 12 long years I finally got some new lamps for my bedroom here.


I hope your November is filled with great lighting and extra marshmallows in your cocoa. 
I am enjoying my most favorite season of the year....Fall. I hope you are too.



PS-  I  just realized I shared the trees on the first day of November....opps! It was all the sugar from the candy. You can find the details here.

Grateful~
When good things happen to great people

September Recap at Top This Top That

It's starting to look very fallish around here. The first festivals started over the weekend, there is a bit more chill in the air at night, and pumpkins.....real and burlap, sit at my front door to greet you.....yet still no color on the trees. But like a lot of things that seem to race right by in life, fall tree color is no different. One day green, next day color, next day no leaves on the trees.......... Enjoy it as soon as you start to see those pops of color.

In case you missed any of my month at Top This Top That, here is a recap of September.



1- Apple Mantlescape 2- Easiest Orange Burlap Pumpkin Wreath 3-Fall Decor around my house 4- My creepy birds entrance 5- Decorator paralysis in my Dining Room 6- Easiest Black Burlap Wreath Ideas

Why reinvent the mantle decorating wheel? I added a few extra leaves, apples and mums on my mantle this year here

Painted my burlap orange here to create a burlap pumpkin wreath. Fun wreath for the door, don't you think?

I joined 12 other bloggers here to share some fall decor around my home.

My creepy version here of the movie "The Birds" at my side entrance. Don't be afraid!

The trials and tribulations of decorating my Dining Room here.

I had a little more fun with my burlap wreath this month, painted it black and created three different looks.
1- Easy Spider Wreath  2- The birds  3- Adams family inspired black wreath.

What was the highlight of your month? Whatever it was......I hope you had an amazing September. Don't forget the color on the trees this month.


Grateful for~
 You
 Thank  you so much for stopping by and visiting with me.
 I appreciate every single one of you!

 PS- Come back later this week where I show you my idea of 'spook'.
