Good Morning, Everyone!

This will probably be my last post for this year, so, today, I am just showing you a few 
of the most viewed posts on my blog during 2012.

But before I start, I just want to say it has been a year full of great fun, meeting all of you, making new friends, joining parties, learning from all your creativity and reading every day all your sweet and wonderful comments.  
This has been my first full year blogging and I have loved every minute of it!

Moving on, up to today, the most popular post on my blog, has been the tiered basket I added to my bathroom.
This post has had over five thousand views and it is still number one on the list today. 
I didn't know you guys like tiered baskets so much! :)
I love them also!

Another two posts that were very popular in 2012 were the burlap and lace runner I made for the kitchen island and re-purposing my old drapes to make a coverlet for our bed.
You can revisit these posts here and here.

And, the last but not least, most viewed on the list were 


We already have several projects in mind for 2013.
This coming year we want and need to concentrate on our outdoor spaces and backyard,
 we need a new fence and want to build a shed for extra storage space.
Can't wait to see what 2013 has in store for us! :)
Happy New Year, everyone and see you all soon!
