Happy almost New Year!
I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas!
We sure did a lot of eating, laughing and lounging around together.
It’s always fun to go back into our archives and reflect on our past projects.
Today, I am choosing to share some of what my readers and friends thought were the best, or at least made for a lot of comments. Not necessarily the best, but some that caught your attention anyway.
I am glad I get to refresh these, because some of my comments were lost with my transfer over to word press last Spring.
which was initially inspired by a blogging friend
This was in January 2012..and it is still holding up fantastic.
No paint chipping or air flow problems. I do remove it to clean the dust.
February came and I started getting into a lot of Valentine crafting…
I really loved these watermelon spray painted mason jars,and so did you.
I plan on doing the same this year…perhaps I have improved.
March 2012, is when I moved over to Word press…
and to be honest,
it was a
BAD month for me.
Everything was messed up…and I was a bit stressed.
All is good now, and I do in fact Love word press.
Still learning the ropes.
Our Spring front porch looked cute though,
so I guess that is all that mattered.
April was looking real good.
It’s also my birthday month so that always puts me in the spirit.
I really loved this thrift chair store makeover…
and a lot of diy thrifters and painters enjoyed it as well.
One of my biggest projects for 2012 was
decorating and hanging things in your window…
can be a real hit!
For instance, these vintage tea cups hanging in our kitchen window were a real wow!
I always say it’s the little things in life.
May came, and Mike and I celebrated our Anniversary,
and it is also Jack’s birthday. So we have a busy month.
Not to mention
that is when I start to try attempt being a green thumb.
My window boxes and outdoor Carolina gardens starting looking real good…
for about a month…
When the roosters starting talking
I knew there was a problem…
Everything in site was getting a stencil or painted around here.
This lazy susan never had a chance!
The biggest project as far as pins and what people really loved….
are these diy no sew burlap valances.
At about this point Summer is in full swing here in the Carolina’s!
It is HOT, HOT, HOT!
we do try to enjoy our Summer Front porch,
and of course our backyard area with the diy Pizza oven
I have to say though the highlight of 2012
was my sisters Vintage wedding.
Most everything was a diy, and inspired by pinterest pins.
You can check out my pinterest account and see Angela’s wedding.
Before you know it, Fall comes a knockin on our door…
This past November I decided our pie safe was in much need of a makeover.
I must say, I am pretty happy with the end result and think I need to paint furniture more often.
and we were floored to see over 200 ways to Primp your pumpkins.
November comes and goes so fast, and before you know it,
it is Christmas!
I hosted my Second annual Knock off decor party….
and a first annual
all things Dollar tree Christmas party.
These parties were so inspiring and gave me and you so many new ideas for next year, I almost can’t wait.
But, I hate when time flies so I must be patient.
That about covers my year just out here in blogland alone.
It’s been a ride and I look forward to more fun filled days out here.
Hard to believe I am coming up on three years….
and I believe I have posted almost every day….or at least 4 days a week I have.
Who knew I had so much to say, do and share:)??
I thank each and every one of you for your loving support, friendship and readership.
After all it would not be a blog or a website if I did not have you along with me.
Thank you for stopping by today.
See you soon!
