Best of the Weekend

Welcome to Best of the Weekend!  We are glad that you are here and are starting your weekend with us.

I hope that you had a good Thanksgiving and that you enjoyed spending time with family.  Now it’s time to enjoy the anticipation of Christmas!

I don’t talk about my cancer often here but I do want to let you know that I recently had scans and for now all is well.  I can’t express how anxious scans make me because I know that it is only a matter of time before my cancer outsmarts my medicine and starts to grow again.  It was a big relief when my oncologist walked into the room and gave me a thumbs up.

Let’s Get this Party Started!

Each week the most popular post from last week’s party is featured on all of our blogs.  Each hostess also picks a few favorites from the previous week to share.  Be sure to check out all of our blogs to see our features.  It’s a great way to get ideas and to get inspired!

What I Shared This Week

I shared my Traditional Southern Christmas Mantel on a week-long Christmas Ideas Tour.  Each day had a theme:  Monday was Mantels; Tuesday was Tablescapes; Wednesday was DIY/Craft Ideas; Thursday was Christmas Trees; and Friday Christmas Recipes were shared.  I so much enjoyed this tour and the ideas shared.

I also shared a DIY Patchwork Wood Wreath that I made for November’s Power Tool Challenge Secret Santa exchange.  It’s so much fun to make a woodworking project for our Secret Santa partner.  Take a look at the projects made and try to guess which might be mine.   I won’t know until it arrives in the mail!

  1. Paula, I am happy to hear your latest health news. I have been thinking about you. Prayers that the medicine continues to do its job. I love your projects this week and I can’t stop staring at the beautiful fireplace! So pretty and classic. Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Thank you so much, Elizabeth! Good news was the best Christmas gift that I can think to get. I so much appreciate you thinking of me!

  2. So glad you had a good report! I follow you on instagram normally,so I didn’t see this update when you posted it. I completely understand the stress of having the scans – like you, I try really hard not to stress about them but it’s hard not to.
    Happy Spring!

    1. Thank you, Karen! It is so hard not to stress over those tests. I hope that you are also doing well.
