Oh What a Year!

Last year I did a post about looking back and how I had no regrets.

This year has been another wonderful year.  I have met so many new blog friends that have brought so much joy into my life.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your sweet comments and the love that I have felt.

I thought it might be fun to hi-lite each post that got the most views for each month in ‘2012’.  Some of them surprised me.

January:  I created a garland from paper doilies and cupcake liners.


February:  Hubby and I put bead board on our living room ceiling.


March:  I painted yard sale shutters and placed them next to my vintage mirror.


April:  I showed my love for turquoise by dying a coffee filter wreath.


May;  My hubby and I created a Rose garden for Mother’s Day.


June:  My friends and I got together and created new shades for our lamps.

July:  I showed you some of my vintage vacation finds.

August: I shared my new collection of Pyrex bowls.

September:  I shared my old cupboard out on the porch that I got from my daughter.  This post got 1,937 views.  That’s way more than any of my posts have ever gotten.


October:  I showed the sign hubby made for me and my recipe for Pecan nut French Toast.


November:  I shared some of my crafts I made for Christmas.


December:  I showed my kitchen Christmas décor decorated in farm style.


I had so much fun looking back.  And my favorite project for ‘2012’ was that of our new fire pit inspired by Williamsburg.


I hope you enjoyed a look back on ‘2012’.  I am looking forward to sharing and visiting with all of you in ‘2013’!

Hi Jann,
I hope you nipped that cold in the bud! I have been sick this entire Christmas break. Loved the look back at all of your projects. Love the Dead and Breakfast sign, and your Christmas decorations. Actually I loved all of them but that would make this comment to long.
Hope you have a good day and a Happy New year.

PS we visited your beautiful state in June and I loved it. We spent a day in Salt Lake City. I would love to come back and spend much more time.

I love your year in review! And I have to admit, the cupboard on your porch was my favorite post.....but the firepit project was a close second. Happy 2013...Cheers! :)

i love that vintage mirror on your mantel and the shutters beautifully compliment the mirror.

Is this mantel over a fireplace? I don't have a fireplace and this gives me a great idea!

Thanks Jann & joy, peace and love for 2013

Wow, what a lovely firepit! Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. I enjoy reading yours. You inspire me to do some decorating at home (and I'm not usually much of a decorating type of gal!)

Happy 2013!
