I am so grateful to be able to post my 10 most popular posts of 2012!  I'm grateful because when I started this blog I wasn't sure where it would go or what I would do with it. And here I am, a full calendar year of blogging finished, and I am still happy doing it and sharing whatever I manage to create with you all.  Thank you for reading and for your supportive and inspiring comments!  

 The Pinterest response to these pillows blew me away!

I almost feel guilty about this recipe in that it only has 3 ingredients!

Inspired by curtains I saw on Thistlewood Farm, I developed my own version!

 This was a little sneak peak before I finished it.

 One of my personal favorite projects ever!  I adore these ruffles!

I grew up eating artichokes but not everyone did so I thought this post may interest people. Boy did it!  Thanks to all who pinned!

I'm still amazed this technique works. That fabric hasn't budged!

One of my favorite desserts to celebrate fall.

So easy!  Much easier than I expected. One of those projects where I was actually surprised at myself for getting it right the first time!

This was good in theory. However, in an effort to keep  my lemons lemony looking I didn't cook them enough and the wreath ended up molding!  EW!  Still, it was pretty for a bit!



  1. I love those Love Note Pillows, and I absolutely ADORE the ruffled curtains! If I had the energy then I would definitely make a set for each of our girls. Oh well... I guess I'll just have to admire yours. ;)
