Top 10 Posts from 2014

Thanks for sharing!

Another year down. The older I get, the quicker time seems to fly by.

2014 was one of those quick years. It seems like yesterday that I was writing my Top Ten of 2013!

I determined my Top 10 by going into my stats…..very technical I tell you.

My top 10 projects for 2014 has a mix of painted projects, DIY and sewing.

Below you will find a list of fabulous bloggers sharing their Top 10 lists as well!

I'll start with my #1 most popular post  and go down the list.
