13 Top Posts of 2013

Written by: Cathy Carroll, Vintage, Paint and more...


Good day folks,
hope you are all enjoying your holidays.
We are traveling  - visiting family
and
have a great time.
I have a down day today and so thought I would put together a post
about the
13 top viewed posts this last year.
I didn't really start blogging till about July
when I decided to get serious about this little blog
and
see just what I could do.
So, without further ado let's get on to the countdown.
#13

This little cloche I made from thrift store finds was very popular
and
actually one of my favorite projects also.
I liked it so well I actually
found some more of these parts and made another one.
You just can't have too many little cloches can you.

#12
This little French Sewing Basket came in 12th.
I enjoyed doing this so much.
My mother had one just like it and it brings back many memories

#11
These mod podge vases came in number 11.
Such a simple way to transform thrift store finds
to fit into your own personal space

#10
This fall wreath made from a Dollar Tree Tray
and
Chevron Burlap Ribbon
came in 10th.
I wanted something that would fit with the black and white decor
of our entryway and this is what I came up with

The next three most viewed posts come from my Fall Decor.
Number 7 is the Fall Paper Crafting post
with all its bright colors and book page projects.

#6
These cute little drop cloth pumpkins came in  in 6th place.
I absolutely love these and can see why they would rank so high.
You can read about them here.
#5
Our Fall entryway was quite the hit being featured on several
linky parties and an e magazine.
I think it is my favorite entryway decor so far.
You can read about it here.
#4
Miss A's 8th birthday party came in as the 4th most viewed post.
We did a mustached themed party
that was so much fun to put together.
You can read more about it here.
#3
For number 3 we head back to my thrift store finds to see
the Painted Glass Vases I did
to match our personal decor.
I show you how easy it is to change up these thrift store finds
to make them fit into your home.
You can read more about that here.
#2
The number 2 most viewed post was back to the
A Handmade Christmas Series
with the Trees.
I have to admit these little trees have stolen my heart
and
you could say I have become obsessed with them.
So, I am not surprised that it was one of the most viewed posts I wrote.
You can see more of these here.
And, drum roll
the #1 most viewed post this year is
The Book Page Wreath Tutorial.
Again this was no surprise to me as I have had a lot of requests
for this particular tutorial
ever since I debuted the wreath.
However, it did take me a long time to finally see the need to write the tutorial.
If you missed it and are wanting to make your own
you can find the instructions here.
                           I want to thank you all for reading each post and coming back to
                                                   see what I have been up to.
                           I have a lot planned for the new year and hope you stick with me
                                as we unfold some new and exciting projects and crafts.
