MY YEAR IN REVIEW - A PICTORIAL

I wanted to share with you all my most favorite snaps from the past year.  These photos were chosen either because it was a favorite project, or I just plain liked the picture!  

Since there are so many, I'm going to try to keep the commentary to a minimum so your not totally overwhelmed!  
So get comfy and enjoy :o)


The B&B where we have our "girl's weekend away".
We almost got snowed in!



Backyard scene from one of the many huge snowfalls this past winter.

The reclining chair-and-a-half I recovered with painter's drop cloth.
Sadly, soon after I finished the project, 

the chair broke :o(

Spring finally arrived!  A page from an old calendar.


Cupcakes created for a good friend's daughter's wedding shower.


Goodies from my blog's milestone giveaway.

Inspirational "stones" made from polymer clay.

 Thanks for sharing this past year with me.  I can't tell you all enough how much I appreciate your readership and support this past full year of blogging.  I look
forward to getting to know more of you through your blogs, and continuing the blogging friendships that I've made over the year.

Happy New Year to you all!

What a great assortment of pictures, Carla! I love your garden shots. I miss doing things in my garden, but I realized a few years ago that something had to give because of time, and gardening was it. Thankfully, I had planted a lot of perennials and interesting bushes and trees, so it still looks good. I keep my flower planting to pots now on the patio.
