Looking back on 2010...

Another year is at an end and new beginnings ahead...I say, "bring it on"!  I am more ready for this new year to begin than I was the last.  I think I have been emotionally, physically and mentally did I survive this last year?! ;)

I decided to join in with Rhoda on Top Projects of 2010. Many other bloggers have linked up all their great projects as well...make sure to visit!

 I feel there were many projects getting done here, being that my main focus (Of course my 1st priority is my family!) this year has been on  remodeling our home.  Many I have shared with you all,  and many more still to come!

Here are some of my favorite projects of 2010...

Started off the year with showing you a peek into my kitchen...
Hoping to show you the full reveal by February.

Then Kitchen Window Meets Character, with a ledge, trim and cottage shutters...

Mr. Wonderful built me a Farmtable Island
painted in cream and distressed with a mahogany planked top...

Using some Burlap and Buttons, I added detail to a couple of linen shade's...

This sweet chair was on to it's 2nd makeover and now looking Fresh and Vintage...

I made this whimsy French sign using old weathered wood and a fun phrase, "Bon Appe'tit"!...

A great Craigslist find became Beautiful and useful again...

I shared how to make your own Faux Stain Glass...

Her Beauty Revealed when I painted and upholstered  this curvy sofa...

Finished out this year making some beautiful stockings 
out of linen, burlap and canvas with adding crocheted 
snowflakes by my mother-in-law at Christmas Time...

Wow...I guess I do feel somewhat accomplished this year, seeing how many things did get done!

On to another new year full of possibilities and dreams...

Happy New Year to you all friends, may all your wishes come true in 2011!!!
