Top Five Most Visited Posts of 2012

January 3, 2012, I posted about faux mercury glass,
using clear glass candlesticks from a thrift store. 
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine this would
be my THIRD MOST VISITED POST this year!
Believe me, If I had known, I'd have taken a 
little more care while staging and waited until
I had daylight to do those photos!
Even the NAME of the post haunts me.

(This is a great illustration of how we cannot know what is to always make wise choices and do our best.)

I did use those candlesticks in my Christmas decor this year, though. You can see one of them above. I just couldn't post the original photo...Yes, it's that bad! You can even see the window I removed in its original minty green color.

My MOST VISITED POST by a landslide was not until July 19. I knew going in that this could be a popular post. My goal was to answer all the questions I'd had about Annie
Sloan Chalk Paint before I plunked down the 40-something dollars it cost per quart. As of today, 4,828 people have visited this post.

My SECOND MOST VISITED POST is a follow up post about ASCP with more questions that were answered in comments by more experienced users than yours truly.
It has received 1,506 visits as of this post.

My FOURTH MOST VISITED POST is a retrospective of seven furniture pieces I'd redone over a period of months. 
It showed before and afters. I LOVE before and after posts, too, so this one I understand. It has 982 visits so far. It was a July post as well. July was a big month around here! 

My Fifth Most Visited Post from April 26 with 752 hits is just a little Sneak Peek of Modern and Primitive Elements together in one space. Again, I LOVE that mix, but had
no idea it would be a favorite of yours. 

I need to get back to that has been on the back burner while I finished other rooms this year.

Tomorrow, I'll post MY favorite posts. They are not the same as yours. Has anyone else had the same experience?

Word for the Day:
Luke 1:28
28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
