12 from 2012

I thought I'd share the top 12 posts & projects
from 2012 with you (excluding giveaways and the weekly link party).
If you're a fairly new visitor here, I hope you enjoy these,
and those of you who have been around
awhile will probably remember most of them.
#1 post - both in page views and comments was
our remodeled kitchen.  It received 154 comments
and 8,375 page views.  Thank you all who came to see it!
In all honestly, it's never been as clean as the
day this photo was taken, and short of hiring a maid,
probably never will be.

Closely related, my Farmhouse Table post
ranked pretty high too, but I think
it's because of the good-looking guy who gave it a kiss!

#2 was my remodeled "Ladies' Room",
with over 123 comments and 5,168 page views.
This was the first fully-remodeled room in our house.
Thank you to all the blog party hosts that featured it!

#3 was my Ironstone & Tarnished Silver Displays,
which received 69 comments and 1,718 page views.
Chippy painted wood, ironstone & patina
are definitely well-loved by many of you.

#4 was my tutorial for making
Restoration Hardware knock-off"metal" stencils.
It got 56 comments and over 6,000 page views.

It received such high page views, because
Donna @ Funky Junk featured it on her FB page,
so there were comments on her FB page as well.

#5 was my Headboard Coat Racks, which were a lot of fun
to create and did well in my shop.  You all
left 46 comments and there were 1,427 page views.
Turning several of them into chalkboards
made them doubly useful - and fun!
I still have a few of them available in my shop HERE.

#6 was my Upcycled Tin Cans, which
were fun to make with antique sheet music,
and such an inexpensive project.  You all left 42 comments.

#7 was the Cozy Sweater Candleholders,
which were a hit during the winter,
with 33 comments and 1,073 page views.
I sold several of these in my shop as well,
and have a few more for sale now HERE.

#8 - Turning old drawers into Chalkboard Display Shelves
was an easily doable project that received 32 comments.

My Little Spring Tool Tote came in at #9,
which was commented on 31 times.
Who can resist old, tarnished silverware?


#10 - Many of you shared my love of Playing with Buttons,
and 30 of you left comments about them.


Strolling in at #12 is my entryway, which I wallpapered
in dictionary pages from the same year I was born.
It got 29 comments and 1,709 page views.

Since we're heading into 2013,
I'll share just one more.

My most repinned images on Pinterest are always
my antique graphics, even though those aren't highly commented on.

#13 in the lineup are these 1800's Pear's Soap advertisements,
which are the most popular graphics I've shared to date, with 24 comments.
The "Printable Antique Graphics" tab at the top of
my blog has received over 15,000 page views!
I'm glad others love them as much as I do.

Oops - I just realized that my painted piano
actually came in #7 with 34 comments,
but I'm too lazy to redo my image at the top or
change this whole post!  Glad you all liked it though!

I hope 2012 was a year you'll look back on
with fond memories and 2013 will be a year
filled with much love, joy & growth for you.
Angie

  9. Hi Angie!
    I am in awe of your incredible talent at bringing things that are old back to life! Your home is so warm and welcoming. How I would love to stroll room by room in person and just take in all the tiny details.
    My great Aunt Viola's home (where my Mother was born in 1922) reminds me of yours. As a young girl I loved to visit her. Her home always smelled of lavender and freshly baked cookies. Everything was always sparkling clean. When she passed away at 97 many of her treasures were spread throughout the family. My Mom gave me some of her precious keepsakes. In the coming year I will share some of them on my blog.

    I am humbled that you chose to feature my blog this coming week. I am such a fledgling having just begun blogging 9 months ago. Thank you so much!

    I pray you have a wonderful New Year, my sweet friend!
    Blessings,
