northstory notes – Oct 18, 2013
Yesterday I was going over my complete mess of a Facebook news feed (I say mess because I never see half the blogs I follow on there anymore due to whatever mysterious algorithm formula they’ve changed to) and luckily – or serendipitously – I came across Brittany of Pretty Handy Girl‘s status update. She talked about a random act of kindness and it led to this awesome thread of stories of people who had their own great RAK’s to share.
So I emailed her to ask if she could she could share it here and this is what happened:
I know right? Because you’re thinking what I’m thinking after reading that. Pretty damn amazing. The world needs more people like Brittany.
So thank you for sharing your story Brittany! Now go check out her latest amazing creation, DIY Industrial Cupcake Stands – because I love a good wood slice project.
In this week’s northstory notes:
A rockstar pumpkin – damn all you bloggers making love gold accents.
YHL posted a great discussion of whether or not “Phase 1 Projects” are a waste of time. You know, the half update, makeover reno of a room before the full and total reno.
I am probably the last person left who is still planning on carving their pumpkin this Halloween but this takes it to another level.
I love these Crystal Ball Halloween candlesticks from Flamingo Toes.
Haunted House. Mermag. Do I need to say anymore?
Having followed Amanda’s kitchen reno since it started, I think I am going to move into hers.
And if you’re a blogger, you need to read this post. It is one of the best posts about blogging I have read in a long time. I read it in a week where I was having a very bad blogging night and it really put things into perspective.
