Under $100 Linky Party

Thanks all for prayers for hubby.  He got into see specialist and thankfully does not require surgery.  However he has a very painful cyst wrapped around his spinal cord.  They tried to get to it to drain it, but were unable to do so--did inject some steroids which helped for a few days, but he is back in bed now, legs up over pillows.  They will try to get to it with a CAT scan to guide them.  They told him today they couldn't get him until the 30th, but he told them that is unacceptable, he is in too much pain.  They are supposed to be calling back tomorrow.  It should be instant relief when they do it--please pray for a cancellation and that they can get him in before Christmas.  I am exhausted doing all of the Christmas prep solo--not that he ever does a lot of it, but still no extra hands when I need it.

Sorry about the link mess up last week.  Still you found your way and figured it out--smart cookies!  Here are a few of those links:

Look at this sweet little vintage button tree from Redheads Craft More Fun:
I love this game in a bag gift--would make a fun New Year's Eve hostess gift--from Today's Fabulous Finds!
Dream Home DIY planked an archway--very unique with dramatic results!
Salvage repurposed like this from Brambleberry Cottage makes me drool!
It is not too late to make this coffee gift idea from Delightful Order!
And Junk Fest's vintage sled centerpiece can be enjoyed all winter long!

If you are not too crazy busy--get linking!
Under $100 Linky Guidelines
1. Please link to the specific post, not your blog!
2. Please only post ideas that cost $100 or less--it would be great if you share the cost of your project, but not necessary.
3. Please include a brief description in link up.
4. Grab my Under $100 button on the sidebar and include it in your post or a link to Beyond the Picket Fence so people can find you and more great ideas.
5. Please check and make sure your link works. If it doesn't you can delete it and try again :
6. Please no direct links to sales sites, i.e. ETSY or just a plain ol' commercial site, we are looking for inexpensive ideas we can recreate, thanks!


  1. Thanks so much for hosting! Have a blessed Christmas!

  2. Hi Becky, I'm sorry to hear about all your hubby (and you) are going through...I will definitely pray for "Divine Intervention" in the scheduling so he can have some relief before Christmas!
    Blessings, Laurel@chippingwithcharm

  3. I'm so sorry that you are all having to deal with so much. Miracles are still possible. Perhaps the Lord will choose to heal him without the cyst needing to be drained. ;)

    May you and your family be blessed this Christmas!

  8. I'm so sorry that your husband is having such a bad time. I understand how you feel though my husband had surgery last December and was out of commission for the whole month. It was hard not to have anyone to count on as back up. I'll keep you both in my prayers, hopefully the Dr will be able to see him before Christmas.

  9. You are in our prayers. God bless your family this Christmas. I really hope all turns out well and you are able to enjoy the Spirit of the Season.
