Winter Blues Wednesday - It's a Party #101

Welcome to this week's Winter Blues Wednesday party.  We have been hit with some super cold temperatures here in New York...brrr it's cold outside!  I can't wait to see what you all have been up to. Each week's party is filled with so many awesome ideas and inspiration.  Here are this week's features:

HOME DECOR:
Chateau Chic showed how she kept out the silver after Christmas to decorate her home.  I love the vintage look.  Gorgeous!
Like a Saturday  has some great tips on what you can do to hide all of those unsightly wires associated with having a television, cable box etc.  So many awesome solutions.

FURNITURE TRANSFORMATIONS:
Southern Abbey refinished this sideboard and painted it this cool shade of gray.  I hope you will stop by her blog to see the full before and after photos.
Uniquely Chic transformed a flea market find into this beauty.  She stained the top with a dark walnut and the body in french gray.
  
CRAFTY CREATIONS:
I use books to decorate with all the time.  Namely Original gives a great tutorial on how to age books you may have and give them a vintage look.  
This is a project that has been on my to do list for a while.  I just love these sweater pillows made by Priscillas.  I especially love the crocheted roses she attached.  

TASTY TREATS:
Mama to 4 Blessings shared her recipe for homemade lentil soup that she made in a crockpot.  Perfect for a cold winter's day.
How cute are these strawberry heart cupcakes that Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom created?  Adorable.

If you were featured, please grab an "I've Been Featured" button (you can now find my buttons by clicking on the buttons tab right under my header).  Now let's get started with this week's party.  I can't wait to see what you have been up to.  Link up anything you have been working on...home decor, sewing, crafts, organizing, baking, recipes etc.   I will keep this link open through Friday.




A few rules:
1.  Please become a follower (if you already follow me on Google, I would love for you to follow me on Linky Followers, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest as well).  

2.  Please grab my party button above and display it either on your sidebar or somewhere in your post.  This way word can spread about the party.  The more people at the party, the more fun we will have.

3.  Please enter the link to your actual post, not just a link to your main blog page.

4. Please visit others who have linked up.   Everyone works hard on their projects and blogs...let's show each other some love by visiting each other.  Let's have some fun and hopefully make a few new friends along the way.

Ok...Let's Party

Thanks for hosting! I can't click on anyone's links though - it's telling me I have to have a user name...is something wrong?

Great features, Judy. Thanks for hosting.

Is this weather nuts or what? Aside from the single digits & negative digits overnight, we're getting snow too. Do you just have cold or snow too?
