    I bought the lit joy letteres too but didn’t get a chance to use them….there’s always next year:)

  3. Has it really been a whole year! And I thought your blog didn’t look a day over halfway through 2013. You have been a productive gal with so many fun projects. I am hard pressed to pick a favorite, but I really enjoyed the one room three ways challenge. I have finally completed my living room, it will be one way only, but in case I want to change it up, I know where to go for ideas. Have a wonderful and Happy New Year friend!

  4. You’ve been a very productive lady this year. I can hardly wait to see what you do in 2014. I’ve enjoyed your blog and you very much this last year. Look forward to seeing what projects you’ll do next year. You’ve sure inspired me. Happy New Year

  5. Thanks for stopping by, Kelly and your sweet comment. I, too have gained so much inspiration from you and your blog this last year. You have the best collections!! Also, thank you for featuring my home:-)

    Wishing you the very best in the New Year!
