Blogging a Year in Review and Thank You

 It's my one year blogging anniversary, I can't believe its been a whole year. I've met so many wonderful bloggers and learned so many great tips and techniques. Overall its been a positive experience and the few negatives are too minor to mention. I'm still amazed that over 300 talented and kind people follow my blog. Each one of you are worth more than a million to me.  I've been through loss and illness with the support of my blog friends and you've been a blessing to me.  I am eternally grateful to all of you who take the time out of your busy day to read this little ole blog. I thank you all for your kindness, your encouragement and support. You've all become a major part of my daily life. For all of you, old and new friends  I thought it might be fun to recap a few of my favorite projects. Number one is my first time at attempting upholstery, my thrift store settee redo.


I've since learned to take a better picture lol. My next favorite is my  painted ottoman,


The  bench redo


Pottery Barn knock off  Hurricanes



The decoupaged Table,

French Bee Tray



Painted Suitcases


And my favorite blog party challenge  from  Debbie Doos Blogging and Blabbing Copy Cat challenge


The altered globe              


The newest favorite is the chair redo

This shows  my chair and a few of my favorite projects in one shot. Thanks for taking this little stroll down memory lane with me. I hope to have lots of good things to share in the future and I''ll continue to look forward to reading and learning so much from all of you talented  and wonderful friends. Thanks again for the inspiration, encouragement, laughs, and just plain fun.  Its been a wonderful year. I'll be joining these great parties,
