There are some things I got done this year that I am very happy with and proud of. It is nice to know that the work is appreciated by others and the blog provides some of that affirmation. My page views are at almost 30K! I don't know if that is good or sad for a blog that has been alive only a year and nine months but I am thrilled. I will share with you some of the things that got the most attention, my favorite projects and a not-so-favorite project.
Viewer Favorite #1
On An Island was a post where Mister and I took an old dry bar and made it into our movable kitchen island topped with granite perfect for rolling out pie crusts and making pizzas!

Something Sew Small was my post of kitchen valances made by yours truly. I made a pattern from paper and went to work.

White Washed shared with you how I used some left over white paint, plaster of paris and some water to update some items in my home so that they fit better to my style...whatever that is.
Then there was my #1 Epic Fail!
It started here at my Autumn Home 2015-Part 1. I painted some cute little gourds and pumpkins with Rustoleum spray paint. They were beautiful!
EWWW! Well, there is proof that not everything I attempt turns out great! The plastic ones held up fine and lasted through the fall season.
I have my own favorites, though. Good For Use is the one that I still go back to. It serves to remind me of my own condition if left to myself.
Of course, I loved all the shopping/treasure hunting expeditions and you know I love summer. At A Day By The Sea Mister and I got to spend some time just enjoying one another's company.
My Media Storage post was the result of a $35 Craigslist purchase! It turned out great and I am so happy with the amount of storage we gained from it.
And there was the little red table I picked up for $10. It got a makeover in the Painted Table post after I watched a video courtesy of Pinterest on how to paint flowers.
As I was trying to pick out my favorites the recent bedroom makeovers were in the running as favorites and I have gotten such gracious compliments on the work there. I had a hard time picking my favorites and if I were to rewrite this post I may pick others as my favorites but the year is closing and so is the time for getting this post closed up.
I have plans for several projects in the year to come. Our home is an old one and is always needing something. Thanks for keeping me company this year. I look forward to visiting with you in 2016 and thank you for adding to my page views! I get so excited to see the traffic through my little corner of Bloggerville. Happy New Year and best wishes for you and your families!
