Fall/Winter Review - Most Visited Posts

I'm a blog newbie. I began visiting blogs late last spring when my daughter sent me some links to view. She was planning for furnishing and decorating her first house. WHAT FUN! I had no idea blogs like this even existed!

Before long, I decided I wanted to do this too - and I began to decide what I wanted to blog about. I knew three points I wanted to focus on, though I've mainly focused on only two of those: furniture and home revisions, living succesfully as a single 50-something woman, and faith. Apparently, the single 50-something  aspect of my blog is not as important as the other two points, but I'm still going to try to work some things in, so keep visiting if you find yourself in a similar situation!

My first post was August 18, 2011.

I have turned my home upside-down and inside-out since then! You know how it looks worse before it gets better? I'm there.

BUT, I can see pinpoints of light in the midst of this mess I've made. And if I keep painting and rearranging, it's GOING to look better sometime, right? (Please tell me it's true!)

Peer pressure has helped me to accomplish some projects I've been putting on the back burner. I have learned a little bit about photography - the more you learn, the more you realize you don't know anything! 

What's the biggest surprise? Without a doubt, it's the sense of community and the relationships I have made!
I only wish I could meet you for a cup of something or we could visit an estate sale or thrift store together! On second thought, we'd probably want the same stuff...:)
In the past 4 months, I've made 38 posts. Here are the top 5 most visited posts:

#5 - The White Hutch - A Home for Orphans

#4 - Secrets That Amaze

#3 - White Washing

#2 - The Quest for My Own Great White Way Continues...

#1 - Lover of All White - Are You a Blancophile?

Hmmm - I think I see a theme here. We seem to be on the same page.

Great! I know I am going to love the direction this next year will take. Fellow blancophiles, are you with me?

Word for the Day:

Genesis 11:6

The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.

It's SO nice to find nice people who speak the same language! Thank you all who have visited and who have taken the time to leave nice comments. You are precious to me.
