I'm sharing 8 of my posts from the first eight 8 months of blogging in 2011! Yikes! I can't believe it's been eight months already!
Can it be! I still consider myself a newbie - still in the blogger honeymoon stage!
My feet are doing a happy dance to share with you my favorite posts, starting with the most popular!
My Ruffled Pumpkin for Halloween. I would never have expected this to be number 1! It was fun to make and took less than 1 hour! I almost didn't post it because I thought I would be laughed at for making a ruffled pumpkin with a black crow on top! I learned from this post that it doesn't have to be a BIG post or project that gets noticed. Way to go!
The Deck Reveal - the project that nearly did us in! Whew - this was a tuffy! One of the longest, most difficult project we undertook (except the kitchen remodel). It look us nearly three months from start to finish. During the process we went through 2 major medical ordeals. 1 directly linked to the project - a rusty nail almost cost my hubs his finger and shut the project down. But it was a huge transformation - from UGLY to Beautiful!
Thrift Store Frenchy Chairs - I was lucky enough to find these two french chairs at a local thrift store for $15.00 bucks each! It was actually the first time I ever visited the local thrift store - when I spotted these two chairs. My heart was a pounding I'd been looking a while. I tried picking up both at the same time to bring to the cash register but couldn't, I was so worried someone would grab the other chair before I got back!
Where's the Legs Buffet - I was so excite to find this buffet at our local Salvation Army - so you can imagine our shock when we got it home and noticed it's two front
teeth legs were missing!
Trash to Treasure Nightstands - one day driving down our old town's alleys we stumbled upon a vintage headboard which had cracked in half. As we got closer we could see there still were 2 of the nightstands attached! How lucky were we!
Breakfast Nook Remodel - another UGLY to Beautiful transformation.
Falling For Leaves Pillows - came up with this idea when I looked inside my Fall stash and only seen leaves!
My Mr. Knightley - my favorite post! I just love the story of when I first laid eyes on Mr. Knightely! It was love at first sight!
It was fun putting together this post and revisiting the projects that were done in the last 8 months. I hope you'll enjoy them as much as me!
