Our party is live and Tuesday Turn About #74 Wood DIYs is featuring some lovely upcycles AND a brand new wood project, too!
TUESDAY TURN ABOUT #74 Wood DIYs
Last week we we learned how to make some wonderful DIY gifts!
And this week, it’s all about DIY wood projects, that could actually be gifts, as well!
Hope you all had a blessed week. My daughter went in for a small procedure this afternoon, so I’m up into the wee hours of the night blogging since I spent some time with her and the family afterwards. Don’t worry, all is well!
We had so many wonderful posts this week, and we actually hit an all-time high for links! Too fun! We SO appreciate you, both readers and fellow blogger alike!
And before we get into some tips and features, may I just say… it’s 50 degrees outside right now! (I know you are just DYING to hear the So Cal weather report!)

Weekly Household Tip
With the temps getting low here in So Cal (hey, it’s low for us), it’s time to break out my electric blanket!
Did you know heated blankets are very energy efficient and cost less in electricity than running your gas heater every night? Well, that’s how it works for me! You may want to give one a try! Here’s the one I use.

This Week’s Features:
Talk about gorgeous! This wood-burned charger is so lovely, easy to make, and super affordable. Stacy from Not Just a Housewife is showing us exactly how to make these for our Thanksgiving table. I’m thinking a set of these would make a great Christmas gift!
Media Center Turned Potting Bench
Do your neighborhood yard/garage sales have those outdated oak entertainment centers that EVERYONE had in the 90s? You may want to think twice about passing the next one up after you see what Heidi from My Sweet Cottage did with hers!
Want to do something with the breadboard that you just can’t bear to part with? Or maybe you found one on-the-cheap at your local thrift store? Whatever the case, Cindy at Cloches and Lavender is showing us how we can make a lovely farmhouse Christmas sign with a little paint, a stencil, and some wax.

Your tags are beautiful, Cindy!
Thank you. They were so fun to create!
Thank you for hosting. This is what I featured the week of 11-2 to 11-6-2020 on my blog. On Tuesday was How To Cook A Turkey In A Convection Oven. Wednesday was Sam’s Sausage Stuffing. Thursday was Turkey Guide 101. And winding up Thanksgiving Preparations was Thanksgiving Stuffing Cheat Using Stove Top Stuffing. Enjoy!
Julie, thanks for hosting this gorgeous party and for featuring my entertainment-center-turned-potting-bench!
Of course, Heidi… I’m thinking oak entertainment centers will be popular again! 😉

We’ve had over two feet of snow here this week. If our winter continues like this we’ll be buried in it by January! Thanks for the party, Julie, and wishing your daughter a speedy recovery.
Wow… I wish we had even a wee bit of snow here… But, I can drive an hour and get to the snow. My daughter is on the mend. Thank you, Marie!
What fun features this week! Hope the new week is good for you and your daughter’s recovery is fine!
Thank you, Jeanie! We are seeing a light at the end of a year long tunnel!
Thanks so much for hosting each week!! It is greatly appreciated!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!
Of course, Debbie!
Lots of fun posts to dive into this week, Julie! Glad your daughter is doing better and I hope she’s on the mend soon. Have a great week! Thanks so much for hosting, CoCo
Thanks, CoCo… she is doing better, but having some other things going on right now. We shall see (she has had a rough health year… but we see a light).
Thanks for hosting Julie and thanks so much for your blogging tips! I look forward to them every week and you’ve helped me so very much! Have a wonderful week!
Of course, Denise! I’m glad you enjoy them! (I almost repeated myself this week, and caught it just in time!)
We’re pretty happen when it warms up to 50! LOL. This week we had a teasing of spring with temps in the 70’s; so unheard of for this time of year in New England.
Oh… that’s so nice to have some warmer weather. It was beautiful in September when I was there!
I remember when it got to the 50 degrees. It was cold for So Cal.
Yep… YOU get me, Rachelle! 😉
Hello, Julie! I’m loving those wood burned chargers and potting bench. I’m happy to link up with you ladies this week. Glad I got the reminder in your IG stories! I hope you have a splendid weekend. Hugs!
Thanks for joining us, my dear friend! Always fun to see you here!
