Under $100 Linky Party

Thanks all for your sweet comments and prayers.  One more "fun" thing happened yesterday:  got home from the hospital and I set a can of minwax polyacrylic on top of my dog's crate.  It got knocked over, dripped through the handle part and she was covered in it.  We tried to wash her, but it didn't come out (supposed to be water soluable)--she is a crunchy mess.  We had a good laugh!  Hubby pretty sick today :(--this too shall pass.  Now, some fun links from last week:

Phil says spring is on it's way--celebrate it with this great idea from Creekside Creations.

Uniquely Chic's rustic beachy dresser makes me smile.
Here is a sweet idea from I Heart Naptime.

I can almost smell this lavendar R from Bon Bon Bonnie.And what about these fabulous letters from Lucy's Designs?
Welcome to the Good Life's Anthro inspired lacey top is sweet.

Posting early, headed back up to the hospital and seems when I schedule linky party posts I seem to find an error when I get back to them, want to make sure everything is up and going.  Thought I was going to have loads of free time this week, not so much. 

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!

  3. Oh my! I am so sorry about your terrible rotten day! Sometimes when everything is stacking up like that in one day all you can do is laugh! Hope the sun shines for you tomorrow!

  4. Thanks so much for hosting especially with everything you have going on right now. I'm glad you were able to laugh about the dog. I can't wait to see what everyone has up under their sleeves this week. I hope tomorrow is a better day for you.

  8. Hi Becky, it has been a while since I have visited, and Im sorry to hear of your hubby's surgery, I hope he recovers quickly...
    It is funny when things go wrong in twos and threes, I remember when my hubby had back surgery 10 years ago, my car broke down, then I borrowed my sisinlaws, and I crashed it!
    Please send some cool air our way, it is so hot right now, in the middle of a heatwave!

  13. I am sorry to hear about your Mason, but thank you for sharing. They are such special children. I wanted to share a link with you:

    It's a group for CHD Angel families in the intermountain area. And I know it says it's for members of intermountain healing hearts, but you don't have to join that group to join the angel group.

    Just in case your interested.
