Guess what this chair is for?

Domestically Speaking re-did her bathroom and I love it.
Wish she would come over and bring her saw.

to be honest about their struggles with blogging & life
and finding a way to have balance. Even when it hurts.

3) Link to a relevant post, otherwise people won’t want to read it. Just sayin’

    I can’t figure out how to link up?

    • Melissa

      Ha. Me either. Hmmm…. looking in to it.

      • Melissa

        Broken. You can put a link in the comments if you want? Maybe it will work tomorrow. :-(

  2. Melissa

    MckLinky must be broken. Can’t find any reason for it not working anymore. Sadness.

    ~No-Sew Burlap Curtains~
    Sorry if I posted this already… I have a friend who insists :) I have a feeling everyone will still be GLAD to link in your comments even if Mr.Linky is broken… still fun! Thinking about doing more tutorials, but boys it’s a TON of work. The post took longer than the curtains did to make.

        It’s BAAACCKK! :-)

    • Melissa

      Thanks Lisa! I’ll try to add ya, I think it is working now.

  6. Marianne

    I was lucky, Mclinky worked for me on my first try. I entered some girly fluffing around in my craftroom. It is my favorite way to pass the time on a grey and wet January day. Thank you for hosting this party!

  7. Liz

    I’m glad MckLinky is fixed. Love the inspiration. Thanks for hosting!

    These finds are inspiring! Isn’t it exciting about Emily’s book contract? I’d say a lot of really great writing goes on in that chair.

    Thank you for gathering some good ideas to help us through a rather bleak time of year.

    thanks for directing us to the transparent posting. it was good for me
    to stop and analyze my own heart. when i started blogging, i had NEVER visited one and, of course, didn’t know about comments.

    if i’m not careful, i might try writing for the comments instead of my
    initial purpose.


  13. Jen R sanctuary art

    Hey Melissa! Thanks so much for the shout out! I really appreciate it! :) Still love that restricted gold!

  14. Amanda

    When she’s done at your house, can she bring her saw over to my house??? That is seriously impressive!


  15. Melinda

    I just wanted to say I love the way Chatting at the Sky displys and stores her fruit. I have been keeping mine in a bowl on the counter, but hers is much prettier!
