A Look Back: Favorite Posts of 2017

As a new year begins, it's fun to take a peek back at all that was accomplished the year before.  Today, I'm sharing some of your favorite posts of 2017.

Happy New Year!  I can't believe that it's 2018 already!  Time just flies by, doesn't it?  We had a nice holiday and spent some time relaxing with family.  My girls aren't back to school until next week, so we plan to catch a few more movies this week.  Any recommendations?

As we move into a new year, it is always fun to look back on some favorites from the past year.  I have gathered some of your favorite posts based on post views and thought I'd share those again with you.  Scroll down to see my goals for 2018 and DIY's we hope to tackle this coming year!

How to Create a Spring Tablescape With Succulents

I loved this tablescape also.  By using faux succulents, I was able to keep it up as long as I wanted without the maintenance of real succulents.  Then when I was ready to change it up, the succulent arrangements were easily used in my existing decor.


Sunflower Summer Tablescape Idea

There is just something about sunflowers that make a girl happy!  This black and white setting with sunflowers was another favorite this year.  It was the perfect setting for hosting friends in a casual space.

DIY Farmhouse Vases

A really simple DIY craft project I did this year was these DIY farmhouse Vases.  Layering paint and distressing them gave them the perfect farmhouse patina.
