January 2012 Review

Here's a quick look back on what went
on here at MAY DAYS in January.
First we welcomed in the New Year and
learned the meaning of the traditional
song Auld Lang Syne.
I made a few 'user-friendly' resolutions.
Next I showed you how I pack-up and store
my Christmas decorations.
I shared my love of flannel sheets with a
new set for the bed.
Did a little antiques shopping and found
this darling vintage scalloped edge table.
Changed the mugs at the coffee bar in
Mug shots and homemade biscotti
Here's how I organize my pantry.
My collection of crystal perfume bottles.
A stock that always pays dividends,
homemade chicken soup.

Wished everyone a Happy Hugging Day!
Shared my idea for finding spaces for
hidden storage and great ideas for
repurposing tennis cans.
Lucy and I each had ideas for using vintage
soda crates in Coke or Pepsi.
Learned I was expecting too much
 from cilantro.
Shared my tip for planting the root end of green onions.
I added another plate to my
great wall of china.
