Favorite Posts of 2016

I took a trip down memory lane this morning to see what posts  my readers seemed to enjoy the most in  and these were the most viewed  posted in 2016.

The farmhouse style table that H made for the front porch was the most viewed......what a fun project that was!

The tour of the Tea Room that H made from vintage windows and doors was in the top viewed as well.....

When H first constructed this building it was used as a potting shed.    Then he made the green house and we used it as the potting shed.     So,  he finished the walls and did an update on the building and we created a Tea Room for me and Kyleigh.  

This old cash register got a make over and we are using it as a planter on the front porch now.

The master bath got a face lift by changing out the mirrors and accessories......

Cloth panels were added to the ceiling of the greenhouse to block some of the direct sunlight out......

The greenhouse is always among the favorites.....

Can't wait for spring!!!

My new back splash in the kitchen was in the top posts....

Here is a close up of the back splash.......

I was surprised to see how many views my spring wreath received!

And last but not least,   is the makeover on a yard sale umbrella with sheets......

Just a few more days til New Years Eve.      Our daughter is having us all over,  so I may not decorate this year since I'm not having the party.

   So    I will wish you a Happy New Years with the photo from our 2015 celebration!

  7. I enjoyed looking back at your year Penny. I always love your greenhouse, and that farm table H made is fabulous! I don't remember seeing the cash register planter. I have an old one in my garage. I need to do something with it or sell it. :) Thanks for sharing with SYC and Happy New Year!

  8. Can I come live with you? I just love coming to visit on the blog. Your home is such a wonderful retreat! It is peaceful and allows me to stop and just be still while studying layer upon layer of Shabby goodness! Can't wait for more! Happy New Year!

    P.S. Your Hubby deserves so much credit, too for all of his behind the scenes work! Mine is the same way for me, at our house. They both do an awesome job!

  9. Enjoyed the look back. Happy New Year!

    Can't wait to see your Valentines Day decor.
    I'd love to have an out door table like yours. A spring time "honey do" list is in order. :)

  17. The green house was by far my favorite. The deck with the fireplace mantel is lovely. You always have so many cute ideas to share. Thanks for linking up to Monday Social.


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
