The Best of 2015

Thanks for sharing!


It's hard to believe that another year has come to an end. I think the older that I get the faster life passes me by. 

It is really a goal of mine to do some serious purging in 2016 and simplify many parts of my life.

Speaking of the new year…let's take a look at the best of 2015. Maryann from Domestically Speaking invited my to share my top posts of 2015 with her yearly roundup!

Join me as I share my top 10 posts of 2015 with you. Lots of decorating and DIY to inspire your 2016!!  Since you've recently seen all of my Christmas DIY and decorating, I've decided to leave those off the list.

We will start at the top and work our way down to number 10. I find it so interesting to look back at my analytics for the year to see how my projects performed.
