My Top Projects and Posts of 2011!

I most always cave to peer pressure, so when I saw just about every other blogger out there sharing round-ups of their best 2011 posts and projects, I just knew I had to do the same. I chose these pretty much randomly...some have been passed back and forth on Pinterest, some were popular with readers, and some I just plain liked! I've included links for each post, and would love to know if you enjoyed any of them. Isn't it fun to look back and see what you have accomplished (and not think too much about what you didn't?) {wink}

Without further ado....

Looking back, I see that I had some really good recipes, some fun crafts, but not a whole lot of home decor posts. I think that needs to be a goal of mine for 2012!

Here's to a New Year of fun projects! What's on your to-do list?

  1. Thanks for stopping by the Cottage at the Crossroads and leaving your kind comments. I'm so glad you invited me to your blog because it is awesome. I saw so many projects in your review that I'd like to read more about. I'm a new follower now.

  2. Hey, Amanda, thanks for linking up! Yum, I want to eat at your house. So glad we got to meet in blogland, it's been a pleasure. happy new year to you!!

  3. You had a great blogging year full of fun projects and definitely great recipes. I look forward to more home decor posts from you in 2012.

    When I looked through my blog, I realized that I didn't do any inside home improvements in 2011. I'm hoping to do at least one thing in 2012.

  4. You had so many fun projects this year - it's hard to choose my favorite! But, that swagger wagon photo makes me giggle every time.

    Best wishes for a happy new year!

  10. Your swagger wagon post was hilarious! I think my favorite is a toss up between your chalkboard tins and your garden flag! I'm sharing my top 10 posts tomorrow, but I used analytics to pick mine...I think that may be a little bit of my OCD shining through:)

  15. So many of these are great - but I HAVE to try that Nutella pumpkin bread! I love pumpkin bread and my sister-in-law loves Nutella!!! Happy New Year!
