Winter Pinterest Challenge

I was simultaneously excited and frustrated that the winter pinterest (I've typed winterest three times now!) challenge was this week.  Excited because I had so much fun doing the last one and frustrated because it seems to have hit during a super stressful time.  I looked through my pins and found zero inspiration (stress tends to swallow inspiration).  So instead, I looked around my apartment.  

I had a broken shelving unit fail, two unplanted succulents, a large glass jar, several ball jars, and other randoms.  I came back to Pinterest and reverse searched for my supplies.  Bada bing bada boom.

I wanted some decorative rocks, but that's the only item I bought for the project.  Mr. Palindrome insists I spent $5.68 on the project, but since I only used 1/5 of the rocks, I say that I spent $1 on it.  :)

Here's how I did it (with Olliver's help):


Don't forget to check out the hosts,' Erin, KatieSherry, and Cassie’s, projects as well as other challengers in the links up sections on each hosts' page!  Thanks gals!


  1. Cats are the most helpful with crafts, aren't they??

  2. That's so cute! And I love that you had a little helper :)

  3. I think I like yours better than the original :-)

  4. Love the squirrel in there! Perfect touch. Looks like Oliver helped with the placement, too. ;)
