January just seemed to whiz on by.
Incredibly fast and super quick-like.
So I gathered up a few bits and pieces of this unpredictably speedy month for review.
Just the highlights, of course.
All That Glitters Is Gold was my week of coating random items around the house with glorious gold paint.
I mean, what’s not to love?
My husband’s birthday this month, was the perfect time to try a new recipe inspired by his favorite cookie. And Mini Snickerdoodle Cupcakes were a hit.
I did a redesign on one of my most popular projects. The Ridiculously Easy No Sew Blind.
I attempted to encourage a little green tinting to my thumb by planting bulbs of Paperwhites and Amaryllis.
And here is the floral reveal!
The paperwhite shoots grew so much faster than expected. This was undoubtably, the easiest thing I ever planted, too.
It was fun witnessing the delicate flowers beginning to bloom. Although, I soon discovered that newly opened paperwhite flowers give off a slightly strange odor. Who knew? Fortunately, the unusual smell disappeared after a couple of days.
The Red Lion Amaryllis ended up being my favorite. Beautiful, bright color and no funky odor. (But please don’t tell the paperwhites.)
And here is an unrelated photo of my kitchen. Just for funsies.
Or maybe a quick game of I-Spy. Can you find a belt, gluten-free dog food (yes, there is such a thing) and a box of surgical gloves?
So, how was your January? Full of glittering gold and smelly plants? Or something a little more interesting? Do tell.
