Year End Review Part 1

Time is winding down on 2011.

Although I haven't been blogging for a full year, this is my 148th post.  So, I had more than enough to put together multiple year end lists.  For the rest of the week, I'll have statistical lists, thematic lists, my personal faves, and whatever else I can get in before 2012.

Today I'm sharing three popular posts.  These are the only three on both my top ten most viewed, and most commented on posts. You can click on the title to revisit the post.

Number Three,  SILVER and WHITE
This was a fun post, and included one of my favorite photos.  I'm not a photographer, but every now and then I surprise myself with a really nice one.

I enjoyed working on this chandelier, and again, I was happy with the photos.

I've enjoyed sharing tutorials with you, and the reception has been quite overwhelming.  Not only with comments, but with many personal emails, and link backs when some of my blogging friends have used the techniques.

Next, I'm going to share my top ten most commented on posts.  Some of them surprised me.  See ya soon.

  11. All great posts and projects Rosemary. I'm so glad I've gotten to know you this year through blogging and I so enjoy all your projects. You truly are an artist:-)

    I wanted to comment on a post you recently did regarding finding all kinds of statuary at a sale. My husband says I'm drawn to the heaviest stuff(which I think is true). What a lovely selection and I only dream of woning such beauties. I am lucky enough to own a couple of the same cherubs you purchased and I love them. They sit on either side of my mantel:-)

    Wishing you much happiness and success in 2012!
