Favorites of 2011

I thought I would join in on the BEST of 2011.
I am joining Debra from Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday.

My Favorite Vintage Inspiration Friday post is about my kitchen and you can read about it here.

My kitchen is the main room of the house and where we spend the most of our time.
I also think it shows that you do not have to have an old or vintage home to have the VINTAGE feel.

I also checked my stats and here are your favorite posts from the past year.


You may notice that the slipcovers seem to be a favorite.
  Mine too!  
I am hoping to sew a few new covers this year too.

I see a lot of painting in my future too!

A few other of my favorite posts from 2011.

It was fun looking back through past posts.

This year I am hoping to do lots and lots of painting, sewing and crafting.

Oh yeah and GARDENING.

We only have a dusting of snow on the ground right now, but the seed catalogs have started coming in the mail and I will soon be climbing the walls just waiting to get outside and dig in the dirt.

How about you?
Have you taken a look back through your past posts?
  See any favorites?

I will also be joining Cindy from My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.

Courtney from French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday.
