Wanderlust Wednesday #3 & Christmas Signs

My husband is smitten with the Christmas sign I hand painted tonight.  I placed it on the mantle I created this Fall and replaced the pheasant feather wreath with (sadly) the only Christmas wreath I own right now.  I plan on changing that soon! I have been anxious to create a woodland inspired wreath.  It's going on the backburner, though, considering I don't have our Christmas tree up yet.  I do have mini-trees in my sons' rooms that I bought for $2 each on clearance at Hobby Lobby last year, though!!!

I created the Merry Christmas, Y'all sign and the Le Premier Noel sign the exact same way.
Here is the faux vintage Christmas sign tutorial.  I found the sign a home in my kitchen.  I love the way the lettering matches the cabinets.  The turquoise is found in art across the room, so my Christmas decor and regular decor actually coordinate.

Sticking with the Christmas theme, the first feature from last week is by Tanya from twelveOeight.  They would make a great start for a centerpiece. Don't you think?

Claire from The Rustic Pig totally blew my Uggs off my feet (I don't wear socks) with this amazing empire dresser makeover.

If I could seriously go get this dresser while my kids are at school tomorrow, I would.  I don't think a trip from North Texas to South Texas can be made in 7 hours, though.  DRAT! You just HAVE to see the amazing deer that she has in her backyard. 

Now's the time to link up YOUR projects so we can wander around and check YOU out!

Welcome to Wanderlust Wednesday! This is a blog party on wheels, y'all!
Tell your bloggy friends you want to go on a road trip!

This is how this party ROLLS (party rules):
  1. Link up your posts (permalinks to actual posts, not your home URL) about room makeovers, life lessons, DIY projects, recipes, furniture makeovers, and all things creative.  Feel free to link up several, you party animal.  But please don't get crazy- refrain from linking up your parties, giveaways & items for sale because then you will make me call the Linky Police who will remove you due to disturbing the peace.
  2. Wander to 2 people below you and leave some comment love on each one.   Seriously, this is a party you want to be at.  This blog thing is "all about who knows who and favoritism. " All the popular people will be at this party ;D.  Well, YOU are here, aren't you? 
  3. Goody-two-shoes will be rewarded! Follow these rules, and link back to me with my button below or a text link to http://howdy-honey.com, and YOU could be featured.  Following me will lead to feature favoritism.  You dig?
If you were featured by Howdy Honey this week, please download your feature button to display in your trophy case.
