2013: The Year in Review

Like so many of you, I wanted to take a minute to look back on 2013. It's not been an easy year for my husband or myself healthwise, but sharing some of the highlights with these posts make it all the more precious. There are so many major changes coming just after the New Year, but I'll be sharing them in depth later next week. We have a move (or two) on the horizon. After eleven years, we know it's time to sell and find a home that's easier to maintain. We've been praying about this for over 2 years, but things fell into place quickly once we stepped out in faith. We're in good spirits and feel confident this is the right direction, but it doesn't mean it will be easy. Tears have been shed, and many memories were revisited this last week, as our kiddos know they won't be here for any more Christmases or Holidays...more on this later; for now enjoy a few posts from my last year.

I've shared my New Year's Tree several years in a row, each year a little different and a little more sentimental.

Pantone's Color of the Year
Everything you ever wanted to know about "Green" in decor.

What I Would Have Missed

I debated whether to just jump in the middle of it, but I decided there must be too many wonderful moments to miss. I'm so glad I took the time to watch. This post is my 2 Season's Catch -up of Downton Abbey.

Spring in the Entry
This is one of my most visited posts.

Fairytale Inspiration for Spring
The Jeanne d"Arc Spring publication gave me some wonderful vintage inspiration.

Make Your Own Vintage Seedbox

I love and have several antique seed boxes, but I got to thinking about how you could make your own for just a few dollars. Many of you tried your own, and created some beauties.

I had Spring fever and thought I'd try my hand at a tablescape inspired by the Spring Garden.

Most Visited Post
I finally had had enough of my manufacturer's yucky tabletop finish on the kitchen table. So ASCP came to the rescue.

Patriotic Sunporch

Each season brings so much fun in redecorating the Sunporch.
Look for a feature on my Patriotic Sunporch in a new publication coming in 2014.

I love seasonal wreaths, here's my secret to lush, full, natural looking ones.

Dining Room Dressed for Autumn

Autumn is my favorite time of the year,
and I love to use my windowboxes for some of nature's inspiration.

Pumpkin Filled Goatcart
Full of Fall Yumminess!

Nature Inspired Thanksgiving Tablescape

I went all out for this, and had so much fun creating a vintage tablescape.

I loved showing you the house decorated in Tartan Plaids.

Christmas on the Sunporch

My cozied up Sunporch in warm plaid for the Season.

Thank you all for being such a constant support with your prayers and friendship this last year. You will never, ever know how much I love you all, and would like to meet each one of you personally and give you a big 'ol hug. I'll share more next week. I'll still be blogging, but things may change a little. I consider this blog a reflection of who I am and where I am in life, not just some pretty white decor. Stick with me, we have some changes coming,  but I'll still be here. Now excuse me while I find a kleenex...
