October in Review

You can definitely tell it’s November in Indiana – it’s been freezing, and most of the leaves are off the trees already.  Thankfully we got to escape the cold a few weeks ago and enjoy some sunshine in San Diego.  (The trip was a surprise birthday gift from my thoughful hubby.)

With my birthday, vacation, and some sickness in our house, October was a busy month for me personally.  I was still able to do several furniture makeovers and a few other projects though – if you missed them, now’s the perfect time to catch up!
