Looking Back at '2017'. . .

Hello my friends,
soon we will be bidding farewell to another year.
I'm sure that most of you know that '2017' has been filled with many ups and downs for my family!
Still, looking back I feel very blessed and am ever so thankful!
Each year at this time I like to glance back through my posts and see which ones got the most views.  I am sharing the most popular post for each month.  It's interesting that the ones that get the most views do not always get the most comments.  :)

In January we warmed up with

In February I shared my love for red in

For March I shared one of my accidental collections in

In April I shared my spring mantle in

In May it was the Garden Eye Candy I shared while on a get away to St. George with some of my gal pals.

In June it was when I shared some of the gorgeous gates while vacationing in Carmel by the Sea in Garden Gate Love

In July my most popular post was that of my 'Pioneer Day' mantle in the Daily Chores of a Pioneer Woman

In August the post with the most views did not even contain one single photo.  :)  It was an announcement about Share Your Cup-Taking a Little Break after my recent surgery.

In September I gave you a little update and shared my fall mantle in It's No Picnic!

For October it was my

In November it was my ornament tree in

For December it was my front porch in

I hope you enjoyed this look back. 

I love sharing my home with you and appreciate all of the love you have shown me this past year!!

Looking forward to another wonderful year of blogging.

I wish you all a very Healthy and Happy New Year!!


I'll be sharing with these fun parties:

Truly a year of ups and downs for you all. Praying for new and good memories for all of you THIS year. I think I started following you after the tea cup exchange so I missed a lot of your earlier posts. YOUR VALENTINE KITCHEN -- LOOOOOOVE!!! I got some great ideas of my retro kitchen that is red, white, turquoise and yellow. I really like the little curtain on the one cupboard. I've been thinking of doing that on one or a few of my lower cupboards as well. Happy New Year my friend!

Best wishes for good health and happiness in 2018 - and thank you for this look back. My kitchen is white with red & turquoise so I especially love your Valentine's Kitchen and Pyrex posts.
Happy New Year to you and your family.

Jeanie said...

I can see why so many of these were such hits, Jann! They were with me, too!

Happy New Year!

I loved that ornament tree post and plan to make one in Fall next year when I'm getting out my Christmas stuff. This year I bought extras just for doing that.
