 As the year draws to a close, it has me reflecting over the past and some of the projects I've done.
Rhoda from  Southern Hospitality  is having a  party for your top projects of the year; and I thought I would join in on the fun and share my top 10.

I'm so grateful to all of you for visiting my blog and all your kind comments.  I apologize because I've been a bit behind on responding to your emails for a few reasons..... #1: We've just been blessed and became proud grandparents of our second granddaughter, born December 23rd.  She's a beautiful baby weighing in at 7 lbs 1 oz. 19 inches long.  #2: Sending time with family for Christmas.  #3: I now have 1200 emails to sort through... :(
(If you would like to read the details on these  top visited posts just click on the heading above each photo.)

To my surprise, a post that I blogged a year ago in December is the #1 post with the most hits.  Even this past month the hits continue to climb on my
Epsom Salt Ornaments & Candle.

#2  DIY Tufted Upholstered Headboard 

#3 Board and Batten for the Bedroom

#4 Reupholstered Wingback Chair

#5 DIY  Spring Artwork

#6 Christmas Decor

#7 Pottery Barn Hanging Mason Jar Knockoff

#8 Pottery Barn Inspired Pillow

#9 DIY Pocket Pillows

#10 Create Your Own Wedding Candy Buffet
(It was a toss up on # 10 because the diy wedding posts received  a lot of hits as well.)

Blogging has been a real JOY for me.  I’ve been inspired and encouraged by you along the way.  I thank each and every one of you; and I'm looking forward to sharing more with you my readers in 2012. 
Have a happy  
New Year!
