My favorite projects of 2011

Looking back over 2011 there have been good times and there have been bad times. I have been away from blogging caring for my mom. Fortunately the new med is helping and a part-time care giver is freeing up a little bit of time for me. Thanks for your cards, e-mails,calls and prayers. You are all so special to me.

This Goodwill redo added a little pop of color to the condo entry way. Complete instructions and photos here

I had such fun with this Pottery Barn knock off project for my grandson. It's a functional child size picnic table that promises lots of fun. I added a pirate flag to the ship and we were ready to set sail.I followed the instructions from Anna White's knock off blog and it was so easy. Details are here

This little table and mirror was a brassy thrift store find. .. a little Metallic Rustoleum and it gave it a new life.
It has been fun looking back over 2011. I hope yours was a good one and that 2012 will be even better. Please join me at the 2011 Top Project party over at Southern Hospitality

Thanks for coming and ya'll come back!


  1. I have missed you. I was happy to see a new post, and I hope your mom is doing better with the new meds. Wishing you all the best for a bright and Happy New Year 2012. xo

  2. I'm thankful your Mom's medicine is helping and that you have some help caring for her. I love all the projects you have pictured above. Amazing what we can find at the thrift store! I enjoy the hunt!

    Happy New Year.

  3. So glad that things are settling so you get some personal time. Hope Mother continues to be maintained.
    Still love that green redo table, so charming.
    Happy New Year ~
