Under $100 Linky Party

The kids started school today, woo-hoo!  God bless all of you moms who get sad at the beginning of the school year.  I think I felt that way when my precious babies were younger.  And come June, I will be excited for them to be out.  But, today I was ready for the new school year, ready to reclaim my kitchen and family room, ready to not hear, "What can I eat?", ready for a schedule.  How about you?  Sad?  Happy?  I look forward to having more time to do some fantastic projects like these:
Book papered wall from Number 53
Tomato jam, yes jam from Architecture of a Mom
3 Mango Seeds' kitchen prep table
A Few Pennies Industrial Pantry
Design Stash's sweet vintage books
Great fall color from Embracing Change
Lampshade makeover by Blissfully Ever After

Thanks for linking up and for sharing you with us :) !!
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.

  7. Thank you for the featured mention. I smiled at your relief for school to begin. I remember those times well! Great summers with kids being home; but, soon moms and dads alike are ready for them to get back into the groove of things. And the kids seem like they're ready too don't they? Enjoy your quiet time and lovely projects. (thank you for hosting a fabulous party every week too)

  10. This is such a fun party, I'm glad to be here...thanks for hosting!

  11. :) Thanks for hosting! Enjoy your daily breaks with the kiddos at school!

  12. Thanks for hosting your fun party for us, Becky! I had to laugh at your opening thoughts about moms who are sad to see kids go back to school...I was not in that category. I love the commercial that shows the parents being euphoric that school is starting and the song "It's The Most Wonderful Time of The Year" is playing in the backgroud.

  13. Thank you so much for featuring my vintage book excited to see it featured here! Have a wonderful week :)

  14. Thanks so much for hosting! Love the features. Have a great weekend!

  15. Thanks for hosting, Becky. Great Job on that table.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
