It's a new year and it's a new month and it's time to talk about the new feature blog for January:

What the Graham?! is the story of newlyweds Jami & Todd (along with their brand new little baby girl) as they check projects off of their amazingly ambitious To-Do List: that includes a little bit of DIY renovatingpainting and organizing.

If you like DIY projects, and if you like finding new blogs to read, it's the perfect time to stop by and see what Jami has in the works:

Jami is hosting a Pinterest-inspired project link party on January 15th. A great way to find project ideas and read linked posts from new-to-you DIY bloggers.

Want to participate? All of the party details are available HERE.

So be a friendly blog neighbor! Stop by What the Graham?! and say "HELLO"!

This month we're featuring an outstanding house blog that is chock full of home improvements, tool talk, design and decor posts:

Old Town Home is co-authored by Wendy & Alex, a dynamic husband and wife blogging team, along with their adorable pets Mel & Lulu. These two are some seriously busy bloggers with their daily posts about life and DIY projects in a beautiful historic row house in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. 

FIRST THINGS FIRST: take a minute to meet this adorable family of four and check out their amazing house tour recently featured on Apartment Therapy. We are madly in love with their blue front door! 

We recommend visiting Wendy & Alex regularly for weekly features like Toolbox Tuesday (all about the tools they use to DIY) and Open Housing (highlighting lovely properties for sale in their neighborhood) and everything in between because they are loaded with great info, tips and photos.

These two are a couple of fun folks who are dedicated bloggers with a really great sense of humor that shines through with creative DIY contest ideas like:

Build your own gingerbread house? LOVE IT! Check out their contest and submit your own gingerbread creation by December 17.

Keep an eye on Old Town Home because this blog is really going places.

Be a good blog neighbor! Stop by Old Town Home, check out their DIY projects and say "HELLO"!
