10 Most Popular Posts of 2014

Good morning everyone.  Hope you all are enjoying the holidays as much as we are.  We had a little bout of the flu bug but everyone is on the mend now and enjoying our beautiful weather - sunny, 70's and breezy.  What more could one ask for in December?  
Speaking of December - 2014 is fast winding down and we will soon be ushering in a new year.  I thought it would be fun to see just what posts were the most popular last year. Which ones you all liked the most.  So I am going to share the top ten with you starting with number 10.

Merry Christmas

Only two days till Christmas and I am busy putting the last minute touches on everything.  School is out and Miss A is beyond excited.  She has been through the packages under the tree a dozen times trying to figure out what is in them and her older siblings are just egging her on.  Oh the joys of being the youngest.

Christmas Throughout the House

Vintage, Paint and more... Christmas decor using vintage and DIY'd items

I think I have finished with all the Christmas decorating for this year.  I usually do a lot more but with the move taking so much energy and still not having all the things done I need to do for Christmas I find I need to stop.

Share It One More Time #17

Hi everyone - it's Saturday and time for the 
Share It One More Time Link Party.
Can you believe it's been a week since the last one.  I have been so busy getting my Christmas decor out but feel like I am spinning my wheels.  But enough about my woes.  I hope you all enjoyed last weeks features.  It always amazes me to wee what you all have been doing.  By the link ups last week, it looks like you all have been busy getting ready for Christmas (as I am trying to do) with lots of projects and a ton of recipes.  Let me show you what Tammy and I have been up to this past week.  

Tammy is busy getting ready for the "Home Tours from the Procrastinators".  She and 15 other "procrastinating" bloggers are going to be showing you their decorated homes starting this coming Monday.  I don't know about you but, I can't wait to see what they have in store for us.  

Did you see her post on how to repurpose glass bottles into a beautiful vignette?  You definitely want to see these - as always they are gorgeous.

The Story of the Nutcracker

Vintage, Paint and more... vintage nutcrackers used in Christmas decor along with other vintage and diy'd pieces

I fell in love with The Nutcracker ballet many years ago and made it a tradition to see it when it was presented in an area close to our home. But even if I can't see it in person I catch one on TV to watch.

Christmas Decor in the Entry

Vintage, Paint and more... Blogger Christmas Series Logo

 I have teamed up with  a few of my fellow bloggers to bring you the  Blogger Christmas Series. This is a collection of  Home Decor, Crafts, Holiday Tablescapes, Recipes and so much more to inspire you during this holiday season. Today I am bringing you   my Christmas entry.

 Last year I decided to use all neutrals in our decor as you can see at Christmas 2013 - A Review.  I loved the way it turned out but my family (and I have to admit even I ) started missing the beautiful colors of red and green that come with Christmas.  So this year I decided to bring back the color and intersperse it among the neutrals.
