Under $100 Linky Party

Another week has passed, wow, does that shock you all like it does me?  I did have a nice, relaxing 4 day weekend--got to fiddle around in the garage, watched some movies, went out with friends.  Two of my kids did end up with strep throat and head colds, but they are on the mend.

I am battening down the hatches today, storm with lots of snow and wind on its way.  I love stormy days when I can stay home and get cozy.  I went to the grocery store, stocked up on the basics, gassed up the car.  After living in Montana for 30 years, this is second nature to me, what one does when a storm is a brewin'.  Do you have routines or things you do that are habit but that might be foreign to someone not living in your area?  It is fun to hear how we all live in our different parts of the country and world.  A stormy day is a great day to check out some great links like these from last week's party:
Artfully Caroline shared how to turn a simple wood step stool into a luxurious foot stool.
I want to make some of these faux metal stencils from Knick of Time.
A sweet and simple heart from Shabby Love.
PB chocolate biscotti from Tales of the T's--I am suddenly hungry!
A happy :) entry from Meeha Meeha makes me smile.
Pour Ameliorer shows us how to make a super functional and cute pegboard for the craft room or office.
Caught My Fancy repurposed an entertainment center into an adorable dollhouse.

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, thanks!
